How to PRAY the Chaplet of Divine Mercy using the rosary:

  2. Say one Our Father.
  3. Say one Hail Mary.
  4. Say the Apostles’ Creed.
    a) Say on the large or “Our Father” beads: “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.”
    b) Say on each of the ten small or “Hail Mary” beads: “For the sake of his Sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.”
  6. Conclude by saying three times: “Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.”
Sign of the Cross

In the name of the Father; and of the Son; and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

The Our Father

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

The Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen

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; the third day He arose from the dead. He ascended into heaven, sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence He shall 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 the life everlasting. Amen!
