The Chaplet of Divine Mercy

On the Rosary Beads:

Begin with the Our Father, Hail Mary, and the Apostle's Creed.

On the Our Father beads pray:

Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, should and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the world.

On the Hail Mary beads pray:

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Conclude by praying three times:

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

The Divine Mercy Chaplet was given to St. Faustina by our Lord on Friday, September 13, 1935. It is, I think especially important for us to pray today.

There are times where mercy and forgiveness are very difficult to find in this world. I am especially in desperate need of the mercy and forgiveness of Jesus Christ as I am such a terrible sinner!

Pax vobis,
