Praying the Chaplet of Divine Mercy for the Sick and the Dying

Jesus said: "My daughter, encourage souls to say  the chaplet which I have given to you.  It pleases Me to grant everything they ask of Me by saying the chaplet. ...  Write that when they say this chaplet in the presence of the dying, I will stand between My Father and the dying person, not as the just Judge but as the merciful Savior. (Diary, 1541)


At the hour of their death, I defend as My own glory every soul that will say this chaplet; or when others say it for a dying person, the indulgence is the same." (Diary, 811)

Pray as much as you can for the dying.  By your entreaties [that is, insistent prayers], obtain for them trust in My mercy, because they have most need of trust, and have it the least.  Be assured that the grace of eternal salvation for certain souls in their final moment depends on your prayer.  You know the whole abyss of My mercy, so draw upon it for yourself and especially for poor sinners.  Sooner would Heaven and earth turn into nothingness than would My mercy not embrace a trusting soul." (Diary, 1777)

In Eucharistic Adoration Chapels around the world, adorers pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy for the sick and dying, and they are part of an International Registry established by the ministry.

Moreover, on the occasion of the Great Jubilee of the year 2000, the Holy Father, St. Pope John Paul II, by a personally signed parchment, imparted a Special Apostolic Blessing "to all the faithful who, during Adoration of Our Most Merciful Savior in the Most Blessed Sacrament of the altar, will be praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet for the sick and for those throughout the world who will be dying in that hour."
