It’s Diving Mercy Sunday, so of course I had to post about it. If you’ve never said the Divine Mercy Chaplet, it’s quite easy, and the benefits are many. How could it ever hurt to contemplate the immense love and generosity of Christ in a form He wants us to adore?
Using a standard set or Rosary beads, here’s how to pray the chaplet:
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.
