The Divine Mercy Chaplet with Theology of the Body Intentions
We pray particularly under the patronage of Our Lady of Guadalupe and St. Juan Diego. Please pray with us daily for the success of Respect Life Ministry in Spanish here in the Chicago Land Area.

On the Large Bead before Each Decade:
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.
On the 10 Small Beads of Each Decade:
For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Concluding Prayer: 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.
Jesus I trust in You. (Three times)
Our Lord promised great graces for those who meditate on His Passion, particularly during the 3:00 pm Hour.
