Divine Mercy is a series of prayers said or sung to the beads of the rosary along with the veneration of a specific image of Jesus Christ. These image and prayers are a product of a revelation and series of conversations that Saint Faustina had with Jesus. They are recorded in great detail in her extensive Diary.
Their sweet and personal conversations revealed Christ's desire to have His deep love and mercy revealed to everyone. He shares His strong desire to have the trust of mankind and His feelings of profound compassion of us through these conversations with Saint Faustina.
This information and instructions allow for all of us to participate in a beautiful meditation praying for Christ's mercy for ourselves and the whole world. This amazing series of prayers brings us to such a peaceful place giving way to trust in Jesus.
Say three times: O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of mercy for us, I trust in you!
Then say: 1 our Father, 1 Hail Mary and the Apostles Creed
On your rosary
On the Our father beads you say: Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and the Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.
On the Hail Mary beads you say: For the sake of his sorrowful passion have mercy on us and on the whole world.
After you have completed the entire rosary, you then say
Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, Have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Excerpts from the Diary of Saint Faustina
"You expired, O Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls and an ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world.
O fount of Life, un fathomable Divine Mercy, envelope the whole world and empty yourself out upon us."
Jesus shares, " Distrust on the part of souls is tearing at My insides. The distrust of a chosen soul causes Me even greater pain; despite My inexhaustible love for them they do not trust Me. Even My death is not enough for them. Woe to the soul that abuses these gifts."
Jesus says to St Faustina, " In order that you may be assured that it is I who am demanding all these things of you, I will give you such a profound peace that even if you wanted to feel troubled and frightened, it would not be in your power to do so today, but love will flood your soul to the point of self-oblivion."
Jesus says to St. Faustina, "Oh how I love those souls who have complete confidence in Me---I will do everything for them."
