The Chaplet of the Holy Face comes from Sr. Mary of St. Peter, a holy Carmelite Nun of Tours, France. The first 30 beads recall the 30 years of Jesus’ hidden life. They are divided into 5 of 6 beads each representing one of the 5 senses. TOUCH, HEARING, SIGHT, SMELL, AND TASTE. 100 days extra indulgence for every prayer said before a picture of the Holy Face! Granted by Pope Pius IX, Dec. 11, 1876.
This beautiful chaplet is handmade in Virginia. The beads that make up the chaplet are red and crystal clear. The style of the crucifix, center and beads may vary on this chaplet. Each chaplet includes the Holy Face Medal.
