Divine Mercy Chaplet

The Chaplet of Divine Mercy was given to us through St. Faustina. She lived in a Convent in Poland during the Second World War, where she provided aid to those seeking refuge from the Nazis. This prayer, along with the unique image of Jesus and His Sacred Heart with the three beams of light, have become very popular among Catholics.

The prayer is said using rosary beads. On the first three beads next to the Crucifix, the Our Father, Hail Mary and Apostles Creed are said.

On the separated beads of the 5 decades of the rosary, the following prayer is said:

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 each of the 10 beads in the 5 decades, the following is said:

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

After this has been done, the Chaplet is concluded with the Trisagion (repeated three times):

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

The following may be included after the the Trisagion:

Jesus, I trust in You, Jesus, I trust in You, Jesus, I trust in You!
