Default Divine Mercy Chaplet - alternate version

[Here is an alternate version of the Divine Mercy Chaplet that I am using:]

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.

For the sake of Jesus Christ's sorrowful Passion and death on the Cross
have mercy on the Pope
and on the whole world.

For the sake of Jesus Christ's sorrowful Passion and death on the Cross
have mercy on the Cardinals and Bishops
and on the whole world.

For the sake of Jesus Christ's sorrowful Passion and death on the Cross
have mercy on priests and missionaries
and on the whole world.

For the sake of Jesus Christ's sorrowful Passion and death on the Cross
have mercy on deacons and seminarians
and on the whole world.

For the sake of Jesus Christ's sorrowful Passion and death on the Cross
have mercy on religious and postulants
and on the whole world.

For the sake of Jesus Christ's sorrowful Passion and death on the Cross
have mercy on lay men and women
and on the whole world.

For the sake of Jesus Christ's sorrowful Passion and death on the Cross
have mercy on teenagers and children
and on the whole world.

For the sake of Jesus Christ's sorrowful Passion and death on the Cross
have mercy on infants and prenatals
and on the whole world.

For the sake of Jesus Christ's sorrowful Passion and death on the Cross
have mercy on sinners in need of repentance
and on the whole world.

For the sake of Jesus Christ's sorrowful Passion and death on the Cross
have mercy on dying and deceased souls
and on the whole world.

O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus
as a font of Mercy for us, I trust in you.

[Repeat the above prayers five times, then say the following prayer three times:]

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

Default Divine Mercy

That's good, Ron. It kind of follows the Divine Mercy Novena a bit. Only trouble is, it doesn't fit with the musical version.....oh well!

Mercy and Love,
Joey

Default another Divine Mercy variation

The version that my wife's spiritual father, a Vincentian from the Pota Divine Retreat Center in India, promotes also uses the blood and water prayer and the Trisagion at the end of each decade, too. I like it.

I want to introduce the Divine Mercy to my western rite Orthodox parish.

Also, here is a rythmic version of the decade prayer that I like, that also includes with Ron's the repitition of the Name of Jesus:

For the sake of the Sorrowful Passion of Jesus, have mercy on us, and upon the whole world.

the rythm is not quite even when you cut the phrases in two, but all together it goes like this:

--'--'--'--'--'--'--'--'

Hi Nathan,

Welcome aboard. I agree ..... that is a very rhythmic version of the DM chaplet. They're easier to say (or sing) when it has a meter.

Default Another little, yet important addition would be:

"Eternal Father, through Mary, I offer Thee the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity, of Thy dearly beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world."

(Inspired by reading the Secret of Mary by St. Louis de Montfort)

No, it is not theologically correct to say that the Sacrifice of Jesus on the Cross, or Jesus Himself, is offered to the Father through Mary. Mary's role is not to be a mediatrix between the Father and the Son. She is mediatrix to fallen humanity, not to the Father. Christ's sacrifice does not become effective by being offered to the Father through Mary. This is not her role.

One could offer the body, blood, soul, and Divinity of Christ to the Father through the Spirit. This would make sense since all Three Persons would be mentioned in the prayer, and the Three are One.

Ok, thanks for the correction Ron.

Would it be theologically correct to say "with Mary" or "in Mary" instead of "through" - or for this prayer we may not need Mary's intervention at all?

I think the phrase 'with Mary' works theologically; there is no problem there, since she is preeminent among the disciples of Christ.

We don't need to mention Mary in every prayer, even though she is the Mediatrix of all grace to fallen humanity. Some persons have erred by exalting Mary in such a manner as to treat her almost like a fourth person of the Trinity. If we don't include her in every prayer, it makes it clear that she is not God.

In church I like to say:

Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity, of your dearly beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, in the most Holy Eucharist, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

I normally pray the Chaplet the way St Faustina lays it out, but I often say a chaplet for a specific person, inserting that person's name into the prayers:

"For the sake of His Sorrowful Passion, have mercy on _____ and on the whole world."


That alternate version sounds lovely. I might pray it that way.
