The Divine Mercy chaplet was given to us by Jesus himself through St. Faustina beginning in 1931. Many times he would appear to her clothed in white, advancing toward her, with one arm raised in a blessing, and the other pointing to his heart from which two rays would shine forth – one red and one white – signifying the blood and water which poured from his heart after the spear pieced it on the Cross. He instructed Faustina to have the image painted with the words “Jesus I Trust in You” along the bottom. Jesus asked Faustina to advocate for the Sunday after Easter to be the Divine Mercy Sunday and he gave her the Chaplet to Divine Mercy which can be prayed on rosary beads.
The prayers of the Divine Mercy chaplet are as follows:
On the crucifix pray: “You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls, and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelop the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us.”
The three times: “O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You!”
Then pray an Our Father, Hail Mary and Apostles’s Creed on the three beads at the start of the rosary.
The on the decade beads, on the Our Father beads pray: “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.”
And on the Hail Mary beads pray: “For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.”
Finally, end on the centerpiece with: “Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.” (three times) and “Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion — inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.”
Until further notice, this rosary will NOT be shipped with a pamphlet of the divine mercy chaplet as it is designed to remind you of Divine Mercy, but isn’t specifically a “divine mercy chaplet”. If that makes sense. If it’s popular enough I may add an insert with the prayers, but not for a while.
On the image of Divine Mercy:
The symbolism of this image runs deep. Jesus advances towards us; He makes the first moves always, meeting us where we are, not expecting us to already be holier than we are. He blesses us because he is the One High Priest, who acts through His Earthly priests. He points to His heart, the symbol for His very self, His core which was pierced with a lance on Calvary.
Red and white rays shine forth through the darkness symbolizing the blood and water from His pierced heart; red for the sacrifice of the Eucharist, and blue/white for the washing clean of our sins in the sacrament of Reconciliation. These rays remind us of the necessity of these two great sacraments which instantly bring us into the arms of Jesus.
Lastly, the words “Jesus, I trust in You” cut right through the origin of Original Sin; a sin of distrust in the love and trustworthiness of God as our loving Father. Every time we say these words we directly combat all sin.
At 17 inches long, with 8mm beads, either version of this rosary is about the same size as your standard rosary. The rosary is assembled with 49-strand steel beading wire, crimping beads, and wire protectors, so it is super strong.
Because this rosary is made with stone beads, it has a weight to it and retains ambient cooler room temperate, which is really awesome to feel when you’re praying; it always made me focus more on what I was saying. And then as you pray the stones warm up from your body heat.
Please remember that all things can break with excessive use. Under normal, conscientious use, this rosary will last a very long time, but, for instance, if you keep this rosary in a tight pocket every day, all day and get it crushed under you or against something, the small glass spacers can break and the steel wire will be under strain and can stretch and even break.
These repairs can be made, and I would be delighted to do so, but as time goes on, I might not have extra beads or I might be gone. So do be gentle and take good care of your rosary.

With a little bit of practice, you can easily undo/redo the clasp on this rosary bracelet so you can pray it anywhere. The short strand of beads makes it perfect for holding it in the palm of your hand and keeps it from getting caught on anything.
On the bracelet you have the Benedictine Crucifix (protection against demons and temptation in general) and the Miraculous Medal (Mary asked that all wear it).
Stylish, practical, and comfortable, this rosary bracelet has been my go-to rosary for months.
Bracelet measurements – I found the best way to measure my wrist size is to use my phone charger cable because it simulates the thickness of the beads when on the wrist. Wrap the cord around your wrist and make it a comfortable size. Mark (pencil/pen/sharpie) the cord, then measure it flat.
Choose the bracelet size closest to your measurement, rounding down as the beading wire will relax and get larger with constant wear, especially with showering.
7″ – The size in the photos on my wrist. Fits snugly directly against the skin.
7.5″ – what I’m finding to be the average wrist size.
8″ – larger wrist size.
Feel free to ask for a specific size if these don’t work! Extra beads are added between the crucifix and clasp and are adjusted to order.
