A Catholic Prayer That All Christians Should Say (UPDATED 3:/26)

jesusdivinemercy

I posted earlier that this year is the year of Mercy, and the Divine Mercy Novena begins today. As promised, this is a “crash” tutorial in how to say the prayers.

Traditionally, they are done on rosary beads. However, it is not required. All that you need are your fingers and some basic counting skills.

The series of prayers, called the Chaplet, begins by stating the intentions being prayed for. Because we are doing the Divine Mercy Novena, each day has a special intention. You pray this first and then the Chaplet.

The Chaplet is very simple. You can break it up into three parts: Beginning, Body, and End.

The Beginning

You bless yourself, making the sign of the cross and saying In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. 

You then say the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Apostles Creed in that order.

 

The Body

1) You begin with the following prayer: 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

2) Then, you say this next prayer ten times: For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world

3) Lastly, you conclude by praying: Jesus, I trust in you. That is one unit, called a decade (because there are ten prayers said in a series).

4) This concludes one series of ten prayers, or decade of the Chaplet. Since there are five decades in the Chaplet, go back and repeat the first 3 prior steps four or however more times until you have completed five decades

 

The End

In order say the following prayer three timesHoly God, Holy Mightly One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world. 

Next, say the following prayer three timesO blood and water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us,  I trust in you.

Finally say the concluding prayer: Jesus, I trust in you. 

Then, you bless yourself again, making the sign of the cross and saying In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. 

 

The Chaplet goes very quickly. It can usually be said in about 10 to 15 minutes at most. Many times, it is much shorter.

This novena will continue for nine days.

And that should give us all to think- God offers His mercy, which is eternal and perfect all for just a few simple prayers and on the condition we strive to live righteously and when we don’t to seek His mercy again in simple Faith and love, and that such a simple prayer could and can save us from God’s divine wrath.

Now THAT is a miracle.

UPDATE 1: As promised, I would include the prayer each day for the Divine Mercy Novena. Here is the first day’s prayers (For March 25th):

“Today bring to Me all mankind, especially all sinners,

and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy. In this way you will console Me in the bitter grief into which the loss of souls plunges Me.”

Most Merciful Jesus, whose very nature it is to have compassion on us and to forgive us, do not look upon our sins but upon our trust which we place in Your infinite goodness. Receive us all into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart, and never let us escape from It. We beg this of You by Your love which unites You to the Father and the Holy Spirit.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon all mankind and especially upon poor sinners, all enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. For the sake of His sorrowful Passion show us Your mercy, that we may praise the omnipotence of Your mercy for ever and ever. Amen.

Day 2 (March 26th- Holy Saturday):

“Today bring to Me the Souls of Priests and Religious,and immerse them in My unfathomable mercy. It was they who gave me strength to endure My bitter Passion. Through them as through channels My mercy flows out upon mankind.”

Most Merciful Jesus, from whom comes all that is good, increase Your grace in men and women consecrated to Your service,* that they may perform worthy works of mercy; and that all who see them may glorify the Father of Mercy who is in heaven.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the company of chosen ones in Your vineyard — upon the souls of priests and religious; and endow them with the strength of Your blessing. For the love of the Heart of Your Son in which they are enfolded, impart to them Your power and light, that they may be able to guide others in the way of salvation and with one voice sing praise to Your boundless mercy for ages without end. Amen.

    Andrew, thanks for gathering this information it’s saved us the job.

  • Nan

    Here, the difference is that 7 refers to mindless babbling, not standard prayers, and that the verse immediately preceding refers to standing on street corners and praying, or praying in synagogue to be noticed, rather than a prayer such as this, for mercy. Note also that 13 adds “For thine is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory, orever. Amen” which isn’t in Matt 7; somebody added that.

    I’m sorry that your tradition has removed much of the richness from Christianity and left you with watered-down doctrine, separated you from beautiful prayers and the saints.

  • Flame blue

    Wishing everyone a happy Easter Season.

    Just back from the Good Friday Service. Thinking of how the droplets of perspiration dropped from Jesus brow in the Garden, as he prepared to make his sacrifice for us the following day. Jesus bridged the gap/gulf between us and God for us, pathetic humanity that we are. What mercy and compassion and love, and even forgave those barbarian people, Roman soldiers, and Jewish Priests.

  • Catbr

    Your venomous vanity and self importance are showing not to mention all the name calling and belittling of catholicism. This one’s for you “Beware of the wolf in sheep’s clothing.”

  • rodolfo

    Thank you Mr. Andrew i am very glad. This is a 3:00clock habit requested from us catholic in the Philippines. We can here the prayer daily on bombo radio at exactly every 3 in the afternoon. I just listen. I’ll start joining in the prayer not just listen.

  • 1Bobby8

    Amen Andrew and Thank you.

  • Andrew Bieszad

    If you had an actual question, I would answer it, but the fact is that your response shows you are only interested in justifying your own prejudices.

    The greatest irony of your comment is that you accuse Walid of “blasphemy” yet your responses indicate it is you who according to the early Church is anathema.

    • Paul Felter

      The early Church is not the Standard! The Word of God, the Bible is the Standard and my points stand on that.

      • Tom_mcewen

        The bible canonization in 397 AD or the one in 1611 AD, which is the standard? How is your Greek?

        • Paul Felter

          Oh Please! Now you are bashing the Bible. You people take the cake

          • So the men who wrote the New Testament, who also were the men of the early church, (who are not the standard according to you), did not leave instructions for the next generations of how to conduct worship? So basically your argument is that the next generation of believers and churches DID NOT follow what Paul, Peter, James, John, Andrew, Thomas, Bartholomew, etc told them to do? And for roughly 1600 years the church continued to practice rebelliously wrong, then Luther, Calvin and the Puritans showed up and got it all right and set the ship straight? In fact the ship they set straight, is so straight, it now has the authority to morph into 40,000 different denominations world wide? Talk about taking the cake.

          • Paul Felter

            Lets not play bait and switch here. I believe every word of Peter Paul James John Matthew Mark Jude and Luke. That is the NT holy scriptures. Your Roman Catholic traditions came several centuries later. Get your history correct.

          • In which century did they come? Can you be specific?

          • racarrera

            You couldn’t pass a basic history class with what you’re peddling.

          • racarrera

            These folks really do take the cake, Vinny. It’s surreal.

          • You know what I found interesting (Not Paul Felter by the way, he’s an after thought)? If one reads Arius’ letter to Eusebius, bishop of Nicomedia, in it one will find Arius talking about, “We are persecuted.” He goes on to talk about being persecuted because, “We have said the son has a beginning.” It is common place, even today, for those who are heretics to see themselves as the persecuted because their false ideas are opposed. Years ago I had a co-worker and friend who was Mormon, telling me how Joseph Smith was persecuted and his murder came about because he was persecuted. So then heretics often justify their positions with, “We are persecuted” which helps them continue on in their heresy. So it is with Mr. Felter, he probably goes away thinking he is doing the work of God, we’re of the devil and he is the one being persecuted here. One can not even have an honest discussion with evangelicals anymore. Always good to hear from you my friend.

          • racarrera

            Vinny, first, wonderful to hear from you, too, and Christ is Risen! And yes, your assessment of the silly weird man is spot-on as ever. These people lie through their teeth if they know Church history, or are ignorant of the basics if they are uneducated. It’s a fruitless conversation unless they have ears to hear and eyes to see.

          • Tom_mcewen

            Truly, truly He has arisen indeed.

          • Christ is risen indeed!

          • Andrew Bieszad

            Amen.

      • racarrera

        Then you fail as in Timothy it is clear that you are to listen to the Church, not your own opinion. This is the sort of babble one expects out of an ignorant American who thinks Jesus came from the bayou rather than from Judea. The Bible mentions countries like Egypt, Palestine, Syria, Greece, modern-day Turkey, Malta and Rome. They never changed their general Church practice. You, phony, come from a ‘church’ which has no reference at all to Christianity except that you hijack the Bible our Apostolic Fathers put together.

        • Стефан Евгений

          There were over 50 gospels floating around, Who decided on just four? he has no clue.

    Charming. Satan comes along to spoil Holy Saturday for the Westerners.

    • Raph Sebastian

      The reply will be what Holy Saturday? No where in the bible is there Holy Saturday. True, no where in the bible is Good Friday too or Easter, yet these hypocrites follow Catholic and Orthodox history and tradition. These same people repeat specific words as in his own definition but will not see it, I bet he will act all pious and holy among all his friends and they will join hands, bow their heads or take a knee and then recite “Father God” in some kind of prayer. These are the same people that will then shout and talk down to us about “2000 years”….as if we apostolic Church members don’t know or haven’t been taught the same for those very same 2000 years, unlike these johnny come lately operations, they learnt a new concoction of some “theology” and then say that is 2000 years old when clearly nothing they preach or teach is older than 200 years some as old as last week too.

      Many times a year they will repeat the same specific words, teach their kids to say, “Now I lay me down to sleep”…Before a sports game invoke the Holy name of God again, by saying “Father God…” false piety during “rock concert worship” once again invoking “Father God..” then forget his own post here of I paraphrase the comment “when you repeat specific words, two three or ten times” but of course this is not witchcraft to him, such hypocrisy stinks to the high heavens.

      • Trevor

        Here’s what I wrote on the Passion of Christ.

        http://trevorswritingpost.x10host.com/2016/03/24/the-passion-of-christ/

        • Стефан Евгений
          • Trevor

            “But how is it that One God, who is perfect and lacks nothing, can be love, when love necessitates a relation to another? The issue of whom God loves before the creation of the universe is resolved in Trinitarian Orthodoxy.”

            Wow! That is deep and I actually agree wholeheartedly.

            You know, reading the first link about the Passion, it is amazing that by Jesus own free will, He laid down His own life, and by His own free will, He took back His own life. It is why the resurrection, and the confession that He is risen is the key to whole Christian theology. Without Christ’s resurrection, we will still be condemned and will die with no hope. No wonder the boldness of the apostles, starting with Peter and ending with Paul who preached with great fervor to proclaim the Good News.

          • Стефан Евгений

            I new you would like it. You get us, and that is a nice feeling.
            We sing this at the service of the Resurrection.

            Troparion of the Resurrection. First Tone.

            When the stone had been sealed by the Jews, and the soldiers where guarding Thine immaculate Body, Thou didst rise on the third day, O Savior, granting life unto the world. Wherefore, the Hosts of the Heavens cried out to Thee, O Life-giver: Glory to Thy Resurrection, O Christ. Glory to Thy kingdom. Glory to Thy dispensation, O only Lover of mankind.

            Kontakion of the Resurrection. First Tone.

            As God Thou didst arise from the tomb in glory, and Thou didst raise the world together with Thyself. And mortal nature praiseth Thee as God, and death hath vanished. And Adam danceth, O Master, and Eve, now freed from fetters, rejoiceth as she crieth out: Thou art He, O Christ, that grantest unto all resurrection.

            Orthodox teach that Christ acsended the cross to do battle, with death and Satan. That is why we say the Holy Cross is a weapon .

          • Trevor

            It’s not hard to understand Orthodoxy when one step back from the Protestant interpretations.

          • Стефан Евгений

            Trevor, one day I pray that you will hear us sing this Troparion (trophy) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paschal_troparion
            Have a blessed Easter Tide…. moy brat, мой брат!

          • Trevor

            I will be able to hear more someday when we all meet in the clouds, the Lord’s willing if I do not meet martyrdom before then.

        • Raph Sebastian

          Awesome, thanks Trevor.

      • racarrera

        Amen, Ralph. People like this are not worth fretting about for your Easter. They are simply dogs who wish to destroy Christ’s most Holy Day.

      • mspip

        not apostolic but may be leaning towards that.

        • Raph Sebastian

          I hope to welcome you home some day soon, Ms. Pip. Until then you have my prayers and have a Blessed Easter, HE HAS RISEN! ALLELUIA!

    • Стефан Евгений
      • racarrera

        People like this are perverts. Of course, they’ll blather on about how evil others are, in direct contradiction to Christianity and the Church Fathers. So much for, “Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me, a sinner.” These people know of no such prayer because they are of Satan.

        • Стефан Евгений

          • racarrera

            Not a pest at all. A sister in Christ is a sister in Christ!

          • Kkdgrace

            Thank you so much for being a faithful brother in Christ. I treasure that and the “mentoring” you so generously supply. I pray you are richly blessed.

          • racarrera

            Received, and I’ll work on the answer now!

  • Tom_mcewen

    You know you will also stand before Jesus in judgement too. False witness is a sin, all sins begin in Pride, and you are full of it.

    • Paul Felter

      I may be full of a lot of things, but false doctrine is not one of them.

      • racarrera

        What is your church, then?

      • Raph Sebastian

        Glad you admit you are full or things, obviously not of God, because the Triune God is not a thing.

      • Tom_mcewen

        Doctrine comes from the pillar and foundation of truth the church, not the bible. The church is the standard of what is true or false. The church has found your doctrines false. The church is through the apostles and the apostolic fathers the master of the bible, not the other way around.

  • Trevor

    The “once for all” was in reference to the end of animal sacrificial system. The Book of Hebrews is one of the most important books in the New Testament as it explained why Christ offered Himself once and for all to put an end to blood sacrifice.

    HOWEVER, the grain offering and burning of incense continues. It was instituted by God at the Holy Mountain where God gave the laws to Moses and Jesus confirmed it with the first Divine Litgury aka the Last Supper. The Early Church continued that which continues today among the apostloic churches.

    • Paul Felter

      The Last Supper is a memorial of Christ’s once for all sacrifice on the cross 2000 years ago. It is not a continual sacrifice to be offered at mass. The Grain offering in Lev 2 surely speaks to Jesus and His sacrifice but it is also a memorial offering, not a sacrifice, a memorial to a sacrifice. “and the priest shall burn the memorial of it upon the altar, to be an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD:”

      • I’m very curious how Evangelicals believe there was a real boat with a real flood. A real ram given to Abraham for his offering in place of Isaac. A real Passover with real blood and a real lamb that had to be consumed. But Jesus said, “This is my body” “This is my blood” and for evangelicals this was somehow only a “memorial” to be used with grape juice and a cracker? The church has continued to hold for over 2000 years now the real presence of Christ at the Lord’s supper. The evangelical objection is only about 400-500 years old (and falling apart.)

        I sat through a Jewish “Seder” last night at the request of a loved one. This Jewish man, who talked so much about the “wine” for the Seder ceremony, but our cups were filled with grape juice. He was so close yet ultimately so far in seeing all that was in the Seder pointed to the real presence of the body and blood of Christ instituted by the church, not his unfortunate evangelical acceptance of his own Jewish roots.

      • Trevor

        Then you do not realize the grain offering never went away. It’s known as the Eucharist. Christ instituted it. In Acts 2, there is a verse where “they continued in the apostles doctrine, breaking bread daily.”

        Only the Catholic-Orthodox has continued that practice. Few other like the Anglican continue that practice. Protestants don’t.

        • rodolfo

          I agree with you brother

          1 Corinthians 10:15-17 Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
          15 I speak as to wise men: judge ye yourselves what I say.
          16 The chalice of benediction, which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? And the bread, which we break, is it not the partaking of the body of the Lord?
          17 For we, being many, are one bread, one body, all that partake of one bread.

          Acts 2:41-43 Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
          41 They therefore that received his word, were baptized; and there were added in that day about three thousand souls.
          42 And they were persevering in the doctrine of the apostles, and in the communication of the breaking of bread, and in prayers.
          43 And fear came upon every soul: many wonders also and signs were done by the apostles in Jerusalem, and there was great fear in all.

          • Trevor

            Yes! Read Malachi 1. The Eucharist was foretold to continue until Christ return. Then go back and read about the Feast of Unleavened Bread. It is the Eucharist.

      • Стефан Евгений

        PF, firstly you don’t have a clue what the word memorial translated to English ment, the greek word is anamnesis.
        In Orthodox Theology there has been only one Eucharist and that happened in the upper room 2,000 years ago. all eucharists are tied to that one eucharist. please see here http://daphneisgood.tripod.com/essays/id8.html

        The word “remembrance” is a sacrificial term and is used in the Greek Septuagint (the Septuagint was the Greek Old Testament widely read in Jesus’ time). “In Lev. 24:7 it (anamnesis) stands for ‘azkarah, which was a memorial offering. . . . This particular ‘azkarah was evidently intended to be a perpetual reminder of the covenant” (Dictionary of New Testament Theology, ed. by Colin Brown [Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan Publ., 1979], 3:239). Anamnesis is used in Numbers 10:10, where it is again regarding sacrifice, which would undoubtedly bring to mind a sacrificial context for those who heard the words spoken at the Last Supper. (1)

    The Catholic channel has the Divine Mercy with beautiful music for sale in their book store. I am an Evangelical Christian and I think it is beautiful. Some parts of the DVD I skip, but most of it is acceptable to non-Catholics.

    Nice cut-and-paste. How sanctimonious. God help you.

  • The really slim shady

    “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what
    we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh
    intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.” Romans 8:26

    So then, would the Spirit have to do more work since not one of these words comes from my heart, but from something I’ve memorized?

    If you don’t know the words or order of this prayer, does that mean that the Spirit will pray this prayer for you since you can’t?

    If you get the order wrong, does that mess up the whole spe….prayer?

    What does this prayer do for you any differently than any other prayer? Save us from divine wrath is it? Then what does the blood of Christ do?

  • The Lord is risen

    Brother you are correct if I were God I would not want to listen to mindless babbling coming from the lips but true praise and thanks giving coming from the heart ,it’s all nuts I used to be a practising Catholic people would need to wake up real soon and seek gods face

  • Sarado Katoliko

    Brother Paul, you seem to be very zealous for God. Actually, that is an admirable trait for a follower of Christ. However, a miserable worm like me humbly asks you to please consider this Bible verse from the book of Revelation. We both love the Bible very much.

    Revelation 4:8 says “And the four living creatures, each one of them having six wings, are full of eyes around and within; and day and night they do not cease to say, “HOLY, HOLY, HOLY is the LORD GOD, THE ALMIGHTY, WHO WAS AND WHO IS AND WHO IS TO COME.”

    Now, if you would indulge me to quote your comment, “Anytime you must say specific words in repetition (ten times, three times) that is witchcraft.”, and apply your logic to what God revealed to St. John, then the practice of witchcraft is very much alive in Heaven. These living beings repeated the word “HOLY” three times exactly as you said and for sure, repeated these words of witchcraft more than ten times since they do it without ceasing.

    Now why would God in his manifest Omniscience allow such black incantations of witchcraft to reverberate in His presence? This can’t be right. Either God is lying or St. John. The certainty of either of these two or both must compel you to anathema the whole book of Revelation immediately. Your zealousness should make you foam at the mouth now and rend your garments while exclaiming, “Blasphemy!”

    Or, could it be that someone had been messing up your mind? Or someone could be deceiving your zealousness for God?

    It takes tremendous fortitude to admit that we’re wrong. I had made many mistakes in my miserable attempts to get to God. But, when I get a saner alternative, I ask God to forgive me, a miserable worm who is not worthy of His Merciful Blood.

    Take care, my friend, on our journey towards our Triune God.

    Look, for the millionth time WE DON’T worship Mary we honour her, you people insult her by saying that, she would never put herself before her son. You can accuse us as ‘Mary worshipper’s’ till the cow’s come home because we know it’s a satanic false accusation. Anyway, shouldn’t you be concentrating more of your lack of obedience to our Blessed Lord by not receiving His body and blood at Mass every week?

  • Then if you care to save us please refute our myths:

    Are you the one or should we wait for another?

    Stay in your closet.

    LK 1:48 For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant; For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed.

    Amen!

    You’re right she’s not Catholic.

  • I can not do that prayer for Jesus do not want us to repeat words in prayers…

  • Стефан Евгений

    Well Grace, I bet you are more pleasing to God b/c you don’t REPEAT prayers like Mary and Jesus did and all the apostles, All Jews had Liturgical prayer.

    Wonderful you know a little of the bible, how about the widow who pleaded with the judge countless times, until the judge for filled her request. That is why the bible is a Catholic book, the holy means whole from the old english, not a protestant’s choice of a verse.

    • Стефан Евгений

      Tom they don’t understand the English word pray, and it’s meaning.
      It simply is to ask of. they think it belongs to God only.

  • Стефан Евгений

    You threw Rocks at Catholics,and indirectly at Orthodox both ask Mary to pray for us . you said ” I am not Catholic and will pray as the LORD has instructed, not as those who pray to Mary.”
    Christ repeated Jewish Prayer did he not, as a Jew?
    Grace, you never bothered to read the links, did you.

    • Tom_mcewen

      Dove TV is fair, it is a relief to not hear a foaming at the mouth Protestant. Some could learn from him. Good Orthodox priest.

  • Tom_mcewen

    The 11 then 12 were Jewish and were Catholic it says so in acts 9:31 in Greek. The subject was vain repetitions can you protestants stick with the subject you started with? Or is a another subject you switch too.

  • Tom_mcewen

    You bible has left out the second Greek word for theology reasons due to the translators. There are many Greek Orthodox here they can tell you more. It is the reason I left Protestantism, because of the leaving out the greek in the translation. The church I joined was the Catholic Church because it is a teaching church and the bible is the greek OT read by Jesus and the apostles and the new testament was assembled by the guidance of the apostolic fathers. The Eucharist is real, I as a protestant first went go an empty Catholic Church and as a old infantry soldier I knew I was not alone, Christ was there. I am educated in the sciences and I respect empirical evidence, there is no empirical evidence to people saying they are saved, they only have an unsupported hope. The greek is the key to a better understanding to scripture, not the English. The bible is only a map it is not the road. Christ is quite clear.

  • speaking to you is like speaking to a Muslim: You are so indoctrinated you don’t want to hear the truth because it infringes on what you were raised to believe.

  • Стефан Евгений

    Barry, you really don’t have a clue do you? I happen to be Orthodox, Russian in fact. I sent you to a Orthodox site. Typical sectarain American, no history what so ever. all you know of the world is your own little sect.
    Just who gave you that bible you use Barry? it did nor fall out of the sky. There were over 50 gospels floating around, who decided on 4.

    Christians don’t trash others beliefs, you came here just to toss rocks.
    Here is an example of 2 guys who are Christian, learning from each other one is Evangelical the other Orthodox.

  • Julie

    Stay in the closet for awhile by yourself and then take a second look at yourself and try to think if Christ was intending otherwise.

    He established the Church, and it is only the Church comprised of many people based on the apostolic faith, that work together to discern God’s will, not European, nationalistic men of the 1500’s.

    You are so full of yourself you have no clue to authentic and most importantly — documented history of Christianity and totally unaware of the patriarchs of all the apostolic churches that were founded by the apostles.

    You are in a man made belief system that is based on your little way of looking at things.

  • Welcome home sister Lyn, so glad you see the truth. “On each day of the novena you will bring to My heart a different group of souls and you will immerse them in this ocean of My mercy … On each day you will beg My Father, on the strength of My passion, for the graces for these souls.”

    Should I not rejoice also on the day that I read your message to know that your soul was brought to His Heart?

    As its best to pray certain prayers on the occasion, but prayers are prayers and pray in any occasion as well.

    As far as your parents Lyn, everyone will be judged on the grounds of what they knew. This is an office that no man can answer and only God can. Pray for their souls, always, and bring their matter to Christ.
