The Chaplet of Mercy is recited using ordinary rosary beads of five decades. It is often prayed during the Novena of Divine Mercy but not always. At the Shrine of Mercy in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, the Chaplet is preceded by two opening prayers from the Diary of Sister Faustina and followed by a closing prayer.

howtoprayOpening Prayers (optional)
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. (1319)
O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You! (4)

Begin the Chaplet with the Our Father, the Hail Mary, and the Apostles' 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:
Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world. (476) (Three times)

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. (950)

The Our Father

The Hail Mary (Angelic Salutation)
Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
