|DIVINE MERCY CHAPLET|
|Chaplet of St. Anthony
This chaplet is composed of thirteen decades of three
beads each. On the first bead of each decade is said the
Our Father, on the second the Hail Mary, and on the
third the Glory be to the Father. At the end the
Miraculous Responsory is recited.
The Miraculous Responsory (by St. Bonaventure)
If miracles thou vain would see;
Lo, error, death, calamity.
The leprous stain, the demon flies,
From beds of pain the sick arise.
The hungry seas forgo their prey,
The prisoner's cruel chains give way;
While palsied limbs and chattels lost
Both young and old recovered boast.
And perils perish, plenty's hoard,
Is heaped on hunger's famished board;
Let those relate who know it well,
Let Padua of her patron tell.
The hungry seas forgo their prey,...
Glory be the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
The hungry seas forgo their prey,...

of Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.
|Chaplet for the Poor Souls in Purgatory
Using a regular rosary, on the large beads we pray:
O Poor Souls, draw the fire of God's Love into my soul, to reveal Jesus crucified in me here on earth rather than hereafter in Purgatory.
On the small beads, we pray: Crucified Lord Jesus, have mercy on the souls in Purgatory.
Pray at the end, 3 times:
Glory be to the Father.....
