The Chaplet of Divine Mercy
The Divine Mercy Chaplet is taken from Sr Faustina’s diary in which she wrote messages from our Lord. The recommendation is that is prayed daily at 3:00 pm to commemorate the Hour of Mercy – the time that Jesus died on Good Friday.
The Divine Mercy novena is prayed from Good Friday to the Sunday after Easter.
The Divine Mercy Chaplet. Let us Pray>>>>>
We begin all of our prayers with The Sign of the Cross
You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls, 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.
O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You! (3 times)
The Our Father.
The Hail Mary.
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.
