I was blessed to be able to attend a conference on Divine Mercy a few weeks ago and I wanted to tell you about all the great things I learned, but I just haven’t had the time to process it and get it all in my head. I *DID*, however, want to share with you The Chaplet of Our Lady of Divine Mercy. It was written in Poland and is relatively new to this country.
The Chaplet of Our Lady of Divine Mercy
Opening Prayer: Hail, Holy Queen
Say on the Our Father beads:
Mary, Mother of all Graces, Mother of Divine Mercy; defend us from our enemies and receive us at the hour of our death.
Say on the Hail Mary beads:
Mary, Mother of Mercy, implore for us the mercy of your Son.
You open your arms to us most merciful Mother, and stretch out your hands, full of mercies and gifts. Your Mother’s heart is restless to endow us with everything we need. Encouraged by your goodness, we have confidence in you. We beg you to intercede for us Mother obtaining for us all we need. Through your most powerful intercession, obtain from God especially the gift of chastity and innocence, and foster in our heart truly childlike love for you. So that we may bear the image of the Sacred Heart of your Son, may the Sacred Heart defend us, guide us, and take us to eternal light. Amen.
Make the Sign of the Cross.
