The Divine Mercy Chaplet
Updated: Sep 25, 2021
The Divine Mercy Chaplet is a great rosary prayer for those seeking Mercy, forgiveness, or comfort from Our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ.
It was written by Saint Maria Faustina who is remembered for keeping a record of the journey of her soul and her life experience in Christ.
In 1979 a group of nuns from the Marians of the Immaculate Conception, St. Stanislaus Kostka Province (located in Poland) found her journal and felt an intense urge to share it around the world.
In 1987 the full text of Saint Maria Faustina's diary was printed and released.
Saint Faustina is credited for writing the prayer of the Divine Mercy.
The Devine Mercy prayer consists of 63 prayers and is easier recited and faster than the traditional Rosary prayers.
