Pray Divine Mercy

The Chaplet of divine mercy (474-476)

The Divine Mercy chaplet is prayed using a 5 decade rosary.



Start with the Sign of the Cross.



Say one Our Father:


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.

 

 

Followed by one Hail Mary:


Hail Mary,
full of grace,
the Lord is with thee
Blessed are thou amongst 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.

 

 

And then, one I Believe:


I believe in God, the Father almighty,
Creator of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died and was buried;
he descended into hell;
on the third day he rose again from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty;
from there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting.

 


Next, using the rosary loop, on each Our Father bead say:

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.



And, on each of the 10 Hail Mary beads say :


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

 


Repeat the above two steps for each pf the five decades of the rosary loop.



Finish by saying:


Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One,

have mercy on us and on the whole world.

 

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One,

have mercy on us and on the whole world.

 

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One,

have mercy on us and on the whole world.
