Rosary Structure:
 
The traditional structure of rosary prayer beads is five groups of ten beads (decades) separated by an additional bead.
The steps to praying the Rosary are:
 
  1. Make the Sign of the Cross and say the “Apostles’ Creed”
  2. Say the “Our Father”
  3. Say three “Hail Marys” for Faith, Hope, and Charity
  4. Say the “Glory Be”
  5. Announce the First Mystery and then say the “Our Father”
  6. Say ten “Hail Marys” while meditating on the Mystery
  7. Say the “Glory Be” (Optional: Say the “O My Jesus” prayer requested by Mary at Fatima)
  8. Announce the Next Mystery; then say the “Our Father” and repeat these steps (6 through 8) as you continue through the remaining Mysteries.
  9. Say the closing prayers: the “Hail Holy Queen” and “Final Prayer”
  10. Make the “Sign of the Cross”
Pope Saint John Paul II suggested the recitation of the Rosary as follows: the JOYFUL mysteries Monday and Saturday, the LUMINOUS on Thursday, the SORROWFUL on Tuesday and Friday, and the GLORIOUS on Wednesday and Sunday (with this exception; Sundays of Advent and Christmas – the JOYFUL; Sundays of Lent – the SORROWFUL). Here is a chart:
 
Monday     JOYFUL
Tuesday    SORROWFUL
Wednesday  GLORIOUS
Thursday   LUMINOUS
Friday     SORROWFUL
Saturday   JOYFUL
Sundays of Advent and Christmas JOYFUL
Sundays of Lent SORROWFUL
Other Sundays GLORIOUS

 

Divine Mercy Chaplet:

Prayers

The Chaplet contains several unique prayers.
 

First opening prayer

This prayer is optional, and may be used to begin the Chaplet:
 
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. [16]
 

Second opening prayer

This prayer, repeated three times in succession, is also optional, and may be used along with the first opening prayer to begin the Chaplet:
 
O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You! [16]
 

Eternal Father

This prayer opens each decade of the Chaplet:
 
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. [16]
 

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion

This prayer, repeated 10 times in succession, forms the body of each decade of the Chaplet:
 
For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world. [16]
 

Holy God

This prayer, repeated three times in succession, concludes the Chaplet:
 
Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world. [16]

Closing prayer

This prayer is optional, and may be used after the Holy God to end the Chaplet:
 
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. [16]

Structure

 The chaplet is often recited on beads as a rosary-based prayer
 
The chaplet is prayed on ordinary rosary beads that are also used to pray the Dominican Rosary[16][12] The structure of the Chaplet is as follows: [16][12]
 
The Chaplet is begun on the short strand of the rosary beads:
 
The praying of the decades then follows, repeating this cycle for each:
 
To conclude:
 
  • The Holy God on the medallion;
  • The optional closing prayer, still on the medallion;
  • Any further intentions; and
  • The sign of the cross.
 
Novena
The chaplet may be repeated over a period of nine days as part of a novena. According to Faustina's Diary, Jesus himself in a vision asked that the Divine Mercy Novena be prayed as a preparation for the Feast of the Divine Mercy, celebrated each year on first Sunday after Easter[17] The novena should begin on Good Friday. There is a prayer intention for specific group of people on each of the nine days. The novena intentions for each day are: [18]
 
  1. All mankind, in particular all sinners.
  2. Christian priests and the religious.
  3. Devout and faithful Christian people.
  4. Non-believers and ignorant who will become Christians
  5. Christian heretics and schismatics.
  6. Meek and humble of heart, and children.
  7. People who especially venerate and glorify Christ's mercy.
  8. The souls in Purgatory.
  9. Lukewarm and indifferent.
