Chaplet of Mercy and Forgiveness

How to pray the Chaplet of Mercy and Forgiveness

This devotion may be prayed on the regular Marian Rosary of 59 beads.

History: This chaplet was composed by Chorbishop Joseph Saidi of Worcester, Massachusetts, U.S.A. Father Saidi was the pastor of Our Lady of Mercy Maronite Catholic Church from 1947 until his retirement in August 1977.

Begin by blessing yourself and kissing the Crucifix. Looking at the crucifix, say:

“Lord Jesus, we believe in You
as You are the Son of Mary
and the Son of the Living God,
Creator and Redeemer.
You came from heaven to earth
to save all mankind.
You are the Savior of the World.
You taught us to pray:
‘Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be Thy name;
Thy kingdom come;
Thy will be done on earth
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
now and forever.


On all of the “Our Father” beads, instead of the “Our Father,” say:

“Merciful Jesus, our Redeemer,
You said, “ask and you shall receive.”
We humbly ask You to hear our prayer,
forgive us our sins
and grant us Your peace and salvation.
We praise You now and forever.”


On all of the “Hail Mary” beads, instead of the “Hail Mary,” say:

“Holy God, Holy Mighty One,
Holy Immortal One,
have mercy on us.”

At the end of each decade (10 beads), instead of the “Glory be to the Father,” say:

“Most Blessed Virgin Mary,
Mother of God,
intercede for us.”

At the end of the last decade of the chaplet, say:

“Most blessed Virgin Mary,
Mother of God,
intercede for us,
for the forgiveness of our sins,
peace and eternal salvation
from your loving Son,
our Lord Jesus Christ,
the only Son of the Living God,
and we praise you,
we bless His name now and forever.”

Glory be to the Father…
