HOW TO RECITE THE CHAPLET OF THE DIVINE MERCY

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.

(Repeat three times)
O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!

(First pray once the Our Father, Hail Mary and the Creed)
(On the beads of Our Father (once) say the following words:)

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 the ten small beads of the Hail Mary (ten times), say the following words:)
For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

(To conclude say three times, the following words:)
Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

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

(Diary. 950).
