The Chaplet of the Divine Mercy
(to be recited on ordinary rosary beads)
Our Father—Hail Mary—The Apostle’s Creed.
Then, on the OUR FATHER BEADS you will 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 HAIL MARY BEADS you will say the following words:
For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
In conclusion, THREE TIMES you will recite these words:
Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
(Chaplet is from St. Faustina's Diary, 476)
Also from St. Faustina's Diary Jesus said -” Say the following prayer with a contrite heart on behalf of some sinner and I will grant them the grace of conversion.”
“O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You!”
If possible, say this Chaplet at 3 o’clock, the hour of mercy.

“Mankind will not have peace until it turns with trust to My mercy.” (St. Faustina’s Diary, 300)
During the 1930’s, a time of upheaval and uncertainty for mankind, Jesus spoke to a young nun in Poland, named Sr. Faustina. Through her many conversations with the Lord he asked for people to turn to His mercy in prayer. The Divine Mercy Chaplet was given to Sr. Faustina to share with the whole world. It’s recitation by the faithful has grown through the many decades with the help of it’s promotion by St. John Paul II. It has now become a beloved traditional prayer of our Catholic faith.
In 2003, at St. Albert’s our Adoration Chapel was dedicated and named after Jesus’ Divine Mercy. May all who read and recite the Chaplet find trust and peace in our Lord Jesus Christ.
St. Albert’s offers an afternoon recitation and confession availability on Divine Mercy Sunday, which is the 2nd Sunday of Easter.
“. . . both the sinner and the righteous person have need of My mercy. Conversion, as well as perseverance, is a grace of My mercy.” (St. Faustina’s Diary, 1577)
The pale ray stands for the Water which makes souls righteous.
The red ray stands for the Blood which is the life of souls.
