Divine Mercy Novena and Chaplet
The Chaplet and the Novena of the Divine Mercy are the prayers that the Lord had given to St. Faustina. He revealed to her these powerful prayers that He wanted all of us to say. The Lord promises us extraordinary graces to those who would recite these special prayers. In fact, the Lord told St. Faustina that whoever will recite these prayers will receive great mercy at the hour of their death. When these prayers are said in the presence of the dying, the Lord said that He would stand between My Father and the dying person, not as a judge, but as a merciful savior.
The Divine Mercy Chaplet or the Novena can be said at any time, but the Lord specifically asked that the Novena be recited on the nine days before the Feast of Mercy, which is the Sunday after Easter. So to properly meet this timing, Day 1 begins on Good Friday, and Day 9 ends on Saturday within the Octave of Easter, the day before Divine Mercy Sunday.
You may click on the day that you are praying and recite those prayers. We can say the Novena or the Chaplet for our own personal intentions or we can offer it together with the daily intentions dictated by our Lord to St. Faustina.
To say the Chaplet of Mercy you can use an ordinary rosary. You can either recite the prayers in unison as prayed below or you can recite it in its entirety. There are Divine Mercy pamphlets on how to pray the Novena and the Chaplet available in our church and in our parish offices.
