This Is One Prayer That Touches the Heart of Jesus Christ

The unimaginable healing power of the soul through the Chaplet of Divine Mercy

Very simple prayer, simple as Jesus, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy originates in the revelation of Jesus himself to St. Faustina Kowalska (1905-1938):

“By reciting this Rosary, it pleases Me to give all that is asked of Me. When they recite the hardened sinners, I will fill their souls with peace, and their hour of death will be happy. Write this to troubled souls: When the soul sees and recognizes the gravity of its sins, when the whole abyss of the misery in which it has plunged unveiled, that does not despair, but that it launches with confidence in the arms of my Mercy , like a child in the arms of the dear mother.

These souls have upon my merciful Heart a right of precedence. He says that no soul that has turned to my Mercy has been disappointed or experienced shame …. When I pray this Rosary among the dying, I will place myself between the Father and the dying soul, not as a just Judge but as a merciful Savior.

At three o’clock in the afternoon, beg for My Mercy, especially for sinners, and, at least briefly, reflect on My Passion, especially about the abandonment in which I found myself in the moment of agony.

This is the hour of great Mercy for the whole world. I will allow you to penetrate My mortal sorrow. At this time, I will not deny the soul to ask Me in the name of My Passion. ”

How To pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy

Use the normal rosary bead – or, if you do not have it on hand, use your own fingers as “beads” to accompany the prayers.

It is highly recommended to pray the Rosary of Mercy at 3 o’clock in the afternoon, when Jesus died on the Cross and, for this reason, the “Hour of Mercy”. But it is not obligatory: it can be prayed at any moment, since, after all, every hour, to God, is an hour of mercy!

The prayers

Begin with the Sign of the Cross.

Pray a Our Father.

Pray a Hail Mary.

Pray the Apostles’ Creed:

I believe in God the Father Almighty,

Creator of heaven and earth,

and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,

which was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit,

was born of the Virgin Mary,

suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried,

came down to the mansion of the dead,

resurrected on the third day,

ascended to the heavens,

is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty,

from where he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit;

in the Holy Catholic Church;

in the Communion of Saints;

in remission of sins;

in the resurrection of the flesh;

in eternal life. Amen.

On each large rosary bead, pray:

“Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and for those of the whole world.”

In each set of ten smaller accounts, pray in ten times:

“for the sake of His Sorrowful Passion,

have mercy on us and on the whole world. ”

At the end of the rosary, pray three times:

“Holy God, Mighty God, Immortal God,

have mercy on us and on the whole world. ”

prayer

It can be concluded with the following invocation (which can also be prayed in an “isolated” way at 3 o’clock in the afternoon, in union with the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ):

“O Blood and Water, which you have shed from the Heart of Jesus, as a source of mercy for us, I trust in You.”

3 Spiritual Ways To Use Your Rosary For Powerful Results

3 Spiritual Ways To Use Your Rosary For Powerful Results

You probably have a rosary lying around your house somewhere. Maybe you received it as a Confirmation gift or picked one up when the sweet old lady was passing them out at church, but you don’t really know what to do with it.

If you remember praying the rosary as a kid as something that took a long time and was really boring, we encourage you to give it another try.

However, we realize that it takes some time to sit down and pray the rosary. Here are three other ways to use your rosary to pray that take a little less time. Try incorporating one into your prayer time today.

1. Chaplet of Divine Mercy

Opening Prayer: 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. O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!

Begin the Chaplet with the Our Father, the Hail Mary, and the Apostles’ Creed. Then, on the large bead before each decade pray:

“Oh, what great graces I will grant to souls who say this Chaplet. Write down these words, my daughter. Speak to the world about My mercy; let all mankind recognize My unfathomable mercy.” – Jesus speaking to St. Faustina (Diary, 848) 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 Hail Mary beads of each decade, say: For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Concluding prayer: Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world. (repeat three times)

Optional 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.

2. Chaplet of the Adorable Sacrament

Opening Prayer: Begin with an Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be for the intentions of the Holy Father.

Pray the following on the Our Father beads: Lord Jesus, I offer You my sorrow for the many sacrileges committed against You and the indifference shown You in the Holy Sacrament of the Altar. Then on the Hail Mary beads pray: Jesus, I adore You in the most Blessed Sacrament.

Closing Prayer: Holy Mother Mary, please present this prayer to your Son, Jesus, and bring consolation to His Sacred Heart. Please give Him my thanks for His divine presence in the Blessed Sacrament. He has treated us with mercy and love by staying with us. May my life be my Thanksgiving prayer to Him. Jesus, I trust in You. Amen.

3. Chaplet of St. Gertrude

Opening Prayer: Beginning at the Cross, pray the Apostles’ Creed. This is followed by Our Father, three Hail Marys, and a Glory Be.

Saint Gertrude was told by Our Lord that each time the prayers of this Chaplet are said, 1,000 souls are released from Purgatory.
Starting on the Medal and then on the 4 large beads between each decade pray the Our Father.

On each of the Hail Mary beads, say the following prayer: Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in Purgatory, for sinners in the universal Church, those in my own home, and within my family. Amen

At the end of each set, say the following prayers: Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, open the hearts and minds of sinners to the truth and light of God, the Father. Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for the conversion of sinners and the world. Also, pray a Glory Be.

 

There are so many wonderful promises to those who pray these Chaplets. It is time to dig up your rosary, find a peaceful place, and begin to pray in a way that will allow you to grow deeper in your faith.

(Note: Due to the title of this post, many have questioned if it is appropriate to wear a rosary as a necklace. Though there seems to be no official Church statement regarding this, Canon 1171 of the Code of Canon Law says: “Sacred objects, set aside for divine worship by dedication or blessing, are to be treated with reverence. They are not to be made over to secular or inappropriate use, even though they may belong to private persons.” Through this statement, we can infer that wearing a rosary simply as a fashion statement or piece of jewelry should not be done. However, if you wear a rosary as a way to express your faith or a reminder to pray, with the intent to honor God through Mary then it is acceptable. My Saint My Hero offers both rosaries and Chaplet bracelets that are beautiful reminders to pray and honor God throughout your day.)
