HOW TO PRAY THE DIVINE MERCY CHAPLET


Use the Rosary beads

and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world.

O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy,

envelop the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us."


(Repeat 3 times):

"O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!"


3. Pray Our Father, Hail Mary and the Apostles’ Creed:  

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. * Amen.


4. On each Our Father bead pray:

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.

Hail, * holy Queen, * Mother of mercy,* our life, * our sweetness and our hope.* To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve:* to thee do we send up our sighs,* mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.* Turn then, * most gracious Advocate,* thine eyes of mercy toward us,* and after this our exile,* show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, * Jesus,* O clement,* O loving,*  O sweet Virgin Mary!*  


Pray for us, * O Holy Mother of God *

that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. * Amen.


9. Optional Closing Prayer:

Eternal God, * in whom mercy is endless * and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, * look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, * that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, * but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, * which is Love and Mercy itself. * Amen.
