as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You!
The Chaplet of the Divine Mercy
~ from the Diary of Saint Maria Faustina, 476
Recite on the beads of the rosary, in the following manner:
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."
Saint Faustina, pray for us.
Act of Entrustment of the world to Divine Mercy
by Pope Saint John Paul II
God, merciful Father, in Your Son, Jesus Christ, You have revealed Your love and poured it out upon us in the Holy Spirit, the Comforter. We entrust to You today the destiny of the world and of every man and woman.
Bend down to us sinners, heal our weakness, conquer all evil and grant that all the peoples of the earth may experience Your mercy. In You, the Triune God, may they ever find the source of hope.
Eternal Father, for the sake of the sorrowful Passion and Resurrection of Your Son, have mercy on us and upon the whole world. Amen.
