Divine Mercy Chaplet
"Jesus, I trust in you."
Blessed Faustina Kowalska (1905-1938)
Recite one Our Father, one Hail Mary, and the Apostles' Creed. Then, on the Our Father beads of the rosary, say the following words:
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 Hail Mary beads, say the following words: For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
At the conclusion of each decade, three times recite: Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
A Prayer for Divine Mercy From the Diary of Blessed Maria Faustina of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy (1905-1938)
O Greatly Merciful God, Infinite Goodness, today all mankind calls out from the abyss of its misery to Your mercy–to Your compassion, O God; and it is with its mighty voice of misery that it cries out Gracious God, do not reject the prayer of this earth's exiles! O Lord, Goodness beyond our understanding, Who are acquainted with our misery through and through, and know that by our power we cannot ascend to You, we implore You, anticipate us with Your grace and keep on increasing Your mercy in us, that we may faithfully do Your holy will all through our life and at death's hour, Let the omnipotence of Your mercy shield us from the darts of our salvation's enemies, that we may with confidence, as Your children, await Your final coming-that day known to You alone. And we expect to obtain everything promised us by Jesus in spite of all our wretchedness. For Jesus is our Hope: Through His merciful Heart as through an open gate we pass through to heaven.
