HOW TO PRAY THE CHAPLET OF MERCY
THE 3’O CLOCK 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 fount of Mercy for us,
I trust in You.”(3x)
On rosary beads First say one:
THE OUR FATHER… THE HAIL MARY … and the APOSTLE'S CREED…
Then on the Our Father beads say:
Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of your dearly beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ in atonement of our sins and 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.
Then Conclude with (3x)
Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy us And on the whole world.
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)
