Saint Thomas the Apostle "Doubting Thomas" Chaplet Prayers


On the Crucifix Pray

Almighty and ever living God, who didst strengthen thine apostle Thomas with sure and certain faith in thy Son's resurrection: Grant us so perfectly and without doubt to believe in Jesus Christ, our Lord and our God, that our faith may never be found wanting in thy sight; through him who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

Pray the Our Father on each of the first three beads

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy name.  Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.   Amen.

Pray the Hail Mary on each of the next three beads

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee.  Blessed art Thou among women and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb, Jesus.  Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.  Amen.

Pray the Glory Be on the final set of three beads

Glory Be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.  As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be; World without end.  Amen.

On the Medal Pray

O Saint Thomas, the Apostle of India, father of our faith you spread the light of Christ in the hearts of the people of India.  You humbly confessed "my Lord and my God" and sacrificed your life for love of Him.  We pray to you to strengthen us with love and faith in Jesus Christ so that we may dedicate ourselves totally to the cause of the kingdom of justice, peace, and love.  We pray that through your intercession we may be protected from all trials, dangers, and temptations and be strengthened in the love of the Triune: God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Amen.
