Chaplet of Divine Mercy in Song

DivineMercyInSongCD.jpgNora and I enjoy the Chaplet of Divine Mercy in song. It’s actually not a song, but rather a prayer – a rosary of sorts.
We’ve watched it on EWTN on Saturdays and Sundays at 3:00 PM, which is considered the hour of divine mercy, being the hour Jesus died on the cross.
The Chaplet of Divine Mercy comes from Sister Faustina. Nora is currently reading her diary.
In 1935, St. Faustina received a vision of an angel sent by God to chastise a certain city. She began to pray for mercy, but her prayers were powerless. Suddenly she saw the Holy Trinity and felt the power of Jesus’ grace within her. At the same time she found herself pleading with God for mercy with words she heard interiorly:
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; for the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us. (Diary, 475)
This is repeated over and over during the singing of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.
We have both the DVD which is nice to watch and also the CD. I’ve downloaded the CD into mp3 format for my Creative Zen and listen to it at night in bed. It’s very relaxing.
