Opening prayer: 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 our upon us. O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You.

Pray one Our Father, one Hail Mary and the Apostle’s Creed (on the first three rosary beads)

For each decade on your rosary beads, say the following words on the 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 the following words on each of the 10 Hail Mary beads: For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Continue this for each of the 5 decades on the rosary beads.

After the 5 decades, recite the following words THREE TIMES: Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Closing prayer: O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in you. 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 You holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
