Chaplet to Divine Mercy

How to pray the Chaplet

The Chaplet is said on ordinary rosary beads as follows:


by saying one ‘Our Father’, one ‘Hail Mary’, and one ‘I believe’. Then:

On the large beads

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 small beads

say the following words:
‘For the sake of His sorrowful Passion have Mercy on us and on the whole world.’

In conclusion

say these words three times:
‘Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have Mercy on us and on the whole world’.

When do we pray the Chaplet?


The Chaplet can be said at any time (it is not to be confused with the Hour of Mercy). Our Lord told St Maria Faustina: “Say unceasingly this Chaplet that I have taught you.” (#687)

“It pleases me to grant everything they ask of Me by saying the Chaplet.” (#1541) “Through the Chaplet, you will obtain everything, if what you ask for is compatible with My will.” (#1731) Trust and acts of Mercy must accompany the devotion.

At death

“Anyone who says it will receive great Mercy at the hour of death. Priests will recommend it to sinners as the last hope. Even the most hardened sinner, if he recites this Chaplet even once, will receive grace from My Infinite Mercy. I want the whole world to know My Infinite Mercy. I want to give unimaginable graces to those who trust in My Mercy....” (#687)

“When hardened souls say it, I will fill their souls with peace, and the hour of their death will be a happy one.” (#1541)

The promise holds good if it said by others who recite the prayer by the bedside of the dying: “At the hour of their death, I defend as My own glory every soul that will say this Chaplet; or when others say it for a dying person, the pardon is the same.” (#811)

Good Friday until the Feast of Divine Mercy

We also begin a Novena of the Chaplet on Good Friday in preparation for the Feast of Divine Mercy. The Novena finishes on the Saturday before the Feast of Divine Mercy. “By this novena, I will grant every possible grace to souls” (#796).
