I started to post the Novena, and then realized I should also post the chaplet. 

Click here------->>[COLOR="Red"]Chaplet of the Divine Mercy[/COLOR]

1. Begin with the Sign of the Cross, 1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary and The Apostles Creed.
2. Then on the Our Father Beads say the following:
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.

3. On the 10 Hail Mary Beads say the following:
For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

(Repeat step 2 and 3 for all five decades).

4. Conclude with (three times):
Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

 
  In 1933, God gave Sister Faustina a striking vision of His Mercy,
Sister tells us:
"I saw a great light, with God the Father in the midst of it.
Between this light and the earth I saw Jesus nailed to the Cross
and in such a way that God, wanting to look upon the earth, had to
look through Our Lord's wounds and I understood that God blessed
the earth for the sake of Jesus."

Of another vision on Sept. 13, 1935, she writes:

"I saw an Angel, the executor of God's wrath... about to strike
the earth...I began to beg God earnestly for the world with words
which I heard interiorly. As I prayed in this way, I saw the
Angel's helplessness, and he could not carry out the just
punishment...."

The following day an inner voice taught her to say this prayer on
ordinary rosary beads:

"First say one 'Our Father', 'Hail Mary', and '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 smaller beads you are to say the following words:

'For the sake of His sorrowful Passion have mercy on us and on the
whole world.'

In conclusion you are to say these words three times:

'Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us
and on the whole world'.

Jesus said later to Sister Faustina:

"Say unceasingly this chaplet that I have taught you. 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...."

"....When they say this Chaplet in the presence of the dying, I
will stand between My Father and the dying person not as the just
judge but as the Merciful Savior".

I was blown away the first time I heard the chaplet on EWTN.  And I'm a Protestant with absolutely NO rosary mileage.  I couldn't help thinking about those times when you have a pop song stuck in your head, and it won't go away.  The same thing happened to me, only it was this chaplet.  I found myself singing it under my breath at work.  Made my day.

What exactly IS a chaplet?  Still working on my Catholic definitions.

Mysty,

Like Crickhallow, I was hooked the first time I heard the Chaplet on EWTN (one of my favourite stations).

I immediately found the chaplet and have it pretty much memorized now.  I pray the chaplet almost daily when it is on.

Blessings
Bro. John

Hi Crickhollow,

Happy Easter & welcome to this forum. 

Yes, I agree that this is a very special prayer. I bring Holy Communion to the sick in the hospital, and we often say a decade of this chaplet at the bedside of the seriously ill.

From NEW CATHOLIC DICTIONARY

[QUOTE]CHAPLET

Originally a wreath worn on the head, the name came to be used for beads strung together, especially beads upon which prayers are counted as they are recited. It is most frequently used to designate a string of 55 beads, a third of the Rosary, upon which are recited 50 Aves and 5 Paters. The term is also applied to strings of fewer beads used for reciting various prayers and aspirations in honor of Our Lord, the Holy Eucharist, etc., as well as for the prayers recited.

It is an emblem in art associated with Saint Dominic and Saint Alphonsus Liguori, referring either to their devotion to the Rosary, or indicating a special distinction. [/QUOTE]

Thanks for the info and the kind welcome.  I'm one of the strange Protestants who actually likes formal prayers, and this is definitely one of them.

He is Risen!
