The Chaplet of The Divine Mercy

 

1. Begin with the sign of the Cross, 1. Our Father, 1. Hail Mary and the Apostles Creed.

 

2. Then on the Our Father beads say the following:

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.

 

3. On the 10 Hail Mary beads say the following:

for the sake of his sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

 

(repeat step 2 and 3 for all five decades).

 

4. Conclude with (three times):

Holy God, holy mighty one, holy immortal one, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

 

In 1933, God gave Sister Faustina a striking vision of his mercy, sister tells us:

"I saw a great light, with god the father in the midst of it.

between this light and the earth I saw Jesus nailed to the cross

and in such a way that god, wanting to look upon the earth, had to

look through our lord's wounds and I understood that god blessed

the earth for the sake of Jesus."

 

Of another vision on Sept. 13, 1935, she writes:

 

"I saw an Angel, the executor of God's wrath... about to strike

the earth...I began to beg god earnestly for the world with words

which I heard interiorly. as I prayed in this way, I saw the

angel's helplessness, and he could not carry out the just

punishment..."  

 

The following day an inner voice taught her to say this prayer on

ordinary rosary beads:

"First say one 'Our Father', 'Hail Mary', and 'I believe'. then on

the large beads 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 smaller beads you are to say the following words:

 

'For the sake of his sorrowful passion have mercy on us and on the

whole world.'

 

In conclusion you are to say these words three times:

 

'Holy God, holy mighty one, holy immortal one, have mercy on us

and on the whole world'.

 

Jesus said later to Sister Faustina:

 

"Say unceasingly this chaplet that I have taught you. anyone who

says it will receive great mercy at the hour of death. priests

will recommend it to sinners as the last hope. even the most

hardened sinner, if he recites this chaplet even once, will

receive grace from my infinite mercy. I want the whole world to

know my infinite mercy. I want to give unimaginable graces to

those who trust in my mercy...."

 

"....When they say this chaplet in the presence of the dying, I

will stand between my father and the dying person not as the just

judge but as the merciful Saviour".

  

Powerful Tip:

  

REMEMBER TO PRAY THE DIVINE MERCY CHAPLET AT 3 O' CLOCK, EVERYDAY!!!!!!!

Because Thou art the Supreme Lord of all things,

Because Thou art infinite perfection, therefore do I say,

with all the Saints in Heaven, With the Blessed Virgin Mary,

Thy Holy Will be done, O my God.  

 

With Jesus in the Garden of Olives,

Thy Holy Will be done, O my God. 

 

Our Father [silently].

R. May it be praised and magnified forever! Amen.

 

Let us pray.

  

Grant me Thy grace, O Father, that perfect resignation to Thy Holy Will may be with me, and labour with me, and continue with me to the end. Grant me always to desire and will that which is most acceptable to Thee and which pleaseth Thee best. Let Thy will be mine, and let my will always follow Thine and agree perfectly with it. Let me always will and not will the same with Thee; let me not be able to will or not will anything except what Thou willest or willest not.

 

R. Amen.

Sacred Heart of Jesus

 

In 1899 Pope Leo XIII approved this Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus for public use. This litany is actually a synthesis of several other litanies dating back to the 17th century. Father Croiset composed a litany in 1691 from which 17 invocations were used by Venerable Anne Madeleine Remuzat when she composed her litany in 1718 at Marseille. She joined an additional 10 invocations to those of Father Croiset, for a total of 27 invocations. Six more invocations written by Sister Madeleine Joly of Dijon in 1686 were added by the Sacred Congregation for Rites when it was approved for public use in 1899. This makes a total of 33 invocations, one for each year of life of our Lord Jesus Christ. A partial indulgence is attached to this litany.

This litany is one that the Holy Father, Pope John Paul II, has prayed many times.

To say it often and with devotion fosters a deep reverence for the Priesthood of Jesus Christ.

At the same time this prayer keeps us mindful of the Divine Victim who offered himself for us on

Calvary and continues to do so at every Mass. That God would strengthen all priests

and grant an increase in priestly vocations let us pray:

of Pope Benedict XV (1914-1922) during World War I.  

 

V. The Lord give you peace;

R. Peace and good will.

 

O Lord Jesus Christ, Who didst say to Thy Apostles, "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you," look not upon my sins, but upon the faith of Thy Church, and vouchsafe to her that peace and unity which is agreeable to Thy will, Who livest and reignest, God forever and ever. R. Amen.

V. I am the Salvation of the people, saith the Lord;

R. In whatever tribulation they shall cry to Me, I will hear them.

 

Let us pray.

 

Jesus, meek and humble of heart, teach us, who have sinned against Heaven and before Thee, the saving grace of a true humility, that we and all the peoples of this world may acknowledge and bewail that spirit of materialism and self-seeking and lust for power and vengeance which has plunged the family of nations into war, until in Thy just wrath the world suffers that punishment which, by turning from Thee, it has brought upon itself. In humility and penance, may we lessen the guilt and hasten true peace, without victory, save the victory of union with Thee. R. Amen.

injuries which Thou hast received in this adorable Mystery,

and over the many sacrileges which are committed by the impious,

by heretics and by bad Catholics.

Inflame us with an ardent zeal to repair all these insults to which,

in Thine infinite mercy, Thou hast preferred to expose Thyself

rather than deprive us of Thy Presence on our altars, Who with God

the Father and the Holy Spirit livest and reignest one God,

world without end.

 

R. Amen.

In Honour of The True Cross

 

Lord, have mercy.

Christ, have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.

Christ, hear us.

Christ, graciously hear us.

God, the Father of Heaven,

have mercy on us.

God the Son, Redeemer of the world,

have mercy on us.

God, the Holy Spirit,

have mercy on us.

Holy Trinity, One God,

have mercy on us.

The word of the Cross is folly to those who are perishing,

but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

God forbid that I should glory save in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,

by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

Jesus has many who love His Kingdom in Heaven, but few who bear His Cross.

He has many who desire comfort, but few who desire suffering.

He finds many to share His feast, but few His fasting.

All desire to rejoice with Him, but few are willing to suffer for His sake.

God forbid that I should glory save in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,

by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

Why do you fear to take up the Cross, which is the road to the Kingdom?

In the Cross is salvation and life, protection against our enemies,

infusion of Heavenly sweetness; in the Cross is strength of mind,

joy of spirit, excellence of virtue, perfection of holiness.

There is no salvation of soul, nor hope of eternal life, save in the Cross.

God forbid that I should glory save in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,

by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

Take up the Cross, therefore, and follow Jesus, and go forward into eternal life.

Christ has gone before you, bearing His Cross;

He died for you on the Cross, that you also may bear your cross,

and desire to die on the Cross with Him. For if you die with Him,

you will also live with Him. And if you share His

sufferings, you will also share His glory.

God forbid that I should glory save in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,

by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

See how in the Cross all things consist, and in dying on it all things depend.

There is no other way to life and to true inner peace, than the way of the Cross.

Go where you will, seek what you will; you will find no higher way

above nor safer way below than the road of the Holy Cross.

God forbid that I should glory save in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,

by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

The Cross always stands ready, and everywhere awaits you.

You cannot escape it, wherever you flee; for wherever you go,

you bear yourself, and always find yourself.

Look up or down, without you or within, and everywhere you will find the Cross.

And everywhere you must have patience,

if you wish to attain inner peace, and win an eternal crown.

God forbid that I should glory save in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,

by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world,

spare us, O Lord!.

Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world,

graciously hear us, O Lord!.

Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world,

have mercy on us. 

 

Let us pray.

 

Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen us to follow Thee not only to the

Breaking of Bread but also to the drinking of the Cup of Thy Passion.

Help us to love Thee for Thine own sake and not for the sake of comfort for

ourselves. Make us worthy to suffer for Thy name,

Jesus, our Crucified and Risen Lord and Saviour,

now and forever. Amen.
