Divine Mercy


Sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum, but can someone tell me what the decade is in this prayer? I wasn’t positive, and I just want to make sure I am praying it right. Thanksss


In the Divine Mercy Chaplet, a “decade” is as follows:

Say on “Our Father” bead:
“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.”

Say on each “Hail Mary” bead:
“For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.”


Oh ok, that is what I pray. But, I thought a decade meant like saying 5 “Our Fathers” or something along that line. Thanks!!


You can even sing the chaplet.
The Divine Mercy Chaplet is a very powerful prayer.
It is prayed at the hour Jesus was crucified 3 p.m.
and it stopped the Angel of Wrath from destroying the world.
I went to a Divine Mercy Conference and was able to hear many beautiful miracles that came from the prayers of the Chaplet.
One in particular, from one of the survivors from the Hudson River crash.
Hope you find the beauty in the Chaplet as I have found.
Peace be with you!:slight_smile:
