Divine Mercy Chaplet
The regular Rosary of five decades is used for the prayer of the Divine Mercy Chaplet.
Two (Optional) Opening Prayers
1. You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls, and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world. O Fountain of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelop the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us.
2. O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!
Begin with the following prayers:
The Apostles' Creed
Prior to each decade (ten small beads), you say the following prayer on the large bead:
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 each of the ten small beads, you say the following prayer:
For the sake of His sorrowful Passion,
have mercy on us and on the whole world.
Upon the completion of the 5 decades (50 small beads), you say the following prayer 3 times:
Holy Mighty One,
Holy Immortal One,
have mercy on us
and on the whole world.
(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.
