Chaplet to the Divine Mercy

The chaplet has an optional opening prayer:

"Thou didst expire, Lord 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 Thyself out upon us."

 

On the beginning you say:

Our Father..., Hail Mary..., I believe in One God...

 

On the large bead before each of the five decades (set of ten prayers) it is stated:

"Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Thy Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world."

 

On each of the 10 small "Hail Mary" beads it is stated:

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

 

The chaplet concludes with:

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

 

The following is repeated three times:

"O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in Thee!"

 

...and finished with (repeated three times):

"Jesus, I trust in You"

 

You can say an optional concluding prayer:

"Eternal God, in Whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Thy mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Thy holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself. Amen."
