The Divine Mercy Chaplet is a prayer said using a chaplet or ordinary rosary beads.
Begin with the Sign of the Cross.
Say the Our Father, one Hail Mary and the Apostle's Creed.
On the Our Father bead at the start of each decade, say:
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.
The pale ray of light represents the Water, which cleanses our souls. The red ray represents the Blood, which gives life to our souls.
As He hung on the cross, Christ’s agonizing heart was opened by a lance. Then these two rays issued forth from the depths of Christ’s tender mercy.
On the Hail Mary beads of each decade, say:
For the sake of His sorrowful Passion,
have mercy on us and on the whole world.
At the end of the five decades say 3 times:
Holy Mighty One,
Holy Immortal One,
have mercy on us
and on the whole world.
Finish with the Sign of the Cross.
