Divine Mercy Sunday

To say the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy:

Begin the Chaplet with the Our Father, the Hail Mary and the Apostle's Creed.

Then on the large bead before each decade:
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 each decade, say:
For the sake of His
sorrowful Passion,
have mercy on us
and on the whole world.

Conclude with (repeat 3 times):
Holy God,
Holy Mighty One,
Holy Immortal One,
have mercy on us
and on the whole world.

Closing Prayer (optional)

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.
