Praying the Chaplet of Divine Mercy is a glorious way to enter into this Year of Mercy. It only takes a few minutes and can easily be prayed almost anywhere. Using a rosary, follow the guide below to offer this wonderful prayer. It is especially good to pray it at the three o’clock hour.
Begin with the Sign of the Cross, 1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary and The Apostles’ Creed.
Then on the Our Father Beads say the following:
Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.
On the 10 Hail Mary Beads say the following:
For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
Repeat for all five decades.
Conclude with (three times):
Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
Optional: St. Faustina’s Litany of Divine Mercy
Divine Mercy Novena (Prayed anytime, especially Good Friday-Divine Mercy Sunday)
