Chaplet of Divine Mercy

Today is a good day to learn the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, if you do not already know it. Earlier this year I had the chance to go to Poland and to venerate the relics of St Faustina. It was a most moving experience, and we were privelleged to meet with and talk to the postulator of her cause; a most humble and yet powerful woman. Truly a woman of God. I encourage you to use the chaplet today, and regularly. So get those rosary beads to hand (unless you have the chaplet beads)!

1. Begin with the Sign of the Cross, 1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary and The Apostles Creed.

2. 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.

3. 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 step 2 and 3 for all five decades).

4. Conclude with (three times): Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Thanks to EWTN for this guide to the chaplet.
