                            DIVINE MERCY

     Using your rosary, begin with the Sign of the Cross. Recite 1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary, and the Apostles Creed.  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.

    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 for all five decades.)

Conclude with (three times):

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


                         PRAYER TO 


     Mary, Virgin most powerful, I honor you under the title of Our Lady of Czestochowa.  It recalls the faithful who remained in your presence night and day in Poland.  

     Teach me to stand always in God's presence every moment of my life. And to do so, let me stay always in your presence, calling upon your help.  Remember me in my needs, and show yourself  my Mother.

     Shed upon me more and more the living light of the Flame that made you blessed.  Enkindly in me the heavenly lovewith which you loved your dear Son, Jesus.  Obtain for me from Jesus the gifts of humility, chastity, and meekness, which were the fairest adornments of your Immaculate Soul.  And after my earthly pilgrimage, grant that my soul may obtain the glory of heaven through the merits of Christ and your intercession.
