The Divine Mercy Chaplet

I just read about a vision that a fellow Catholic had in 2015. He woke one night to find an enormous angel praying in his bedroom. He was wounded and tired. He looked at the fellow and said that he was the angel assigned to protect the United States, but that he and his forces were losing the battle for our nation to Satan and his forces. He asked the fellow to tell everyone to pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy daily for the salvation of the nation.

This chaplet* is recited using ordinary rosary beads. Begin as usual with the Sign of the Cross.

On the crucifix, recite the Apostles’ Creed.

On the first big bead, recite the Lord’s Prayer.

On the three small beads, recite a Hail Mary each for Faith, Hope, and Charity.

On the big beads at the start of each decade, say “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, say “For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.”

When I say “us,” I like to think “U.S.”

At the end, say three times, “Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.”

End with the Sign of the Cross.

*There’s a more complicated way to do it, with long, optional prayers, which you can find on-line. I prefer to follow the basic pattern for the rosary, so I can focus on the prayers and not be fumbling with a pamphlet.

2020: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:6-7

2020: [8:36] – Lou Dobbs talks with Tom Fitton (Judicial Watch) and Sidney Powell (Mike Flynn’s lawyer) about how the FBI reportedly investigating the use of NSA software to ensure the election for Joe Biden.

The Left is declaring Joe Biden the next president based on states that have not yet been decided. IGNORE THEM!

President Donald Trump says he will not stop fighting to reach a fair and transparent conclusion for the presidential election because he wants to ensure the election system is free of fraud.

“We believe the American people deserve to have full transparency into all vote counting and election certification, and that this is no longer about any single election. This is about the integrity of our entire election process. From the beginning we have said that all legal ballots must be counted and all illegal ballots should not be counted, yet we have met resistance to this basic principle by Democrats at every turn. We will pursue this process through every aspect of the law to guarantee that the American people have confidence in our government. I will never give up fighting for you and our nation.” – President Trump

The Republican National Committee (RNC) announced on Friday they have set up legal teams in the four battleground states of Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, amid alleged “clear irregularities” in the vote counts for the general election.

BLUE STATES: Democrat-run states had the most severe lockdowns, yet suffered the most coronavirus deaths per capita. Unsurprisingly, they also had the highest increases in unemployment and continue to lead the nation in unemployment.

GEORGIA: This race is so close, there will have to be a recount. Georgia holds 16 electoral college votes. A candidate can request a recount in Georgia if the margin is less than 0.5%. Right now, it is well within that at 0.1%.

MEDIA MALPRACTICE: In 2017, when President Trump said that purveyors of fake news are enemies of the state, the shrieking heads in the Left Stream Media yammered for hours about how he was an existential threat to our freedoms.

These same Defenders of Freedom had crickets to say about it when Nancy Pelosi denounced President Trump and his allies “domestic enemies to our voting system and honoring our Constitution.”

NEVADA: Lawyers for the Nevada Republican Party sent a criminal referral to Attorney General William Barr on Thursday, claiming they have received reports of at least 3,062 instances of voter fraud in the battleground state.

“We expect that number to grow substantially,” the party tweeted. “Thousands of individuals have been identified who appear to have violated the law by casting ballots after they moved from NV.”

NEW YORK: NYC – Congratulations, Democrats! You have succeeded in making what once was the greatest city in the world into the worst to do business in America.

RAAACISM: Silly me … and here I thought my objections to defunding the police were protecting the public, particularly in low income, high crime neighborhoods. And I foolishly thought my objections to socialism were about how it makes the middle class poor and the poor destitute, all while increasing the so-called wealth gap (which AOC claims to despise so much). But what do I know? I’m just a deplorable enemy of the state.

SOCIAL MEDIA: Twitter has actively censored six of President Donald Trump’s posts over the 24 hours between Thursday mid-morning and Friday. Twitter’s censorship can lower the engagement of a Trump tweet by more than 80 percent, according to one recent analysis of their performance.

Facebook is demoting content that its “systems predict may be misinformation” relating to election fraud. On Thursday, Facebook blacklisted a grassroots group called “Stop the Steal,” deleting the group after it had gained more than 300,000 members.

SPORTSMANSHIP: [1:43] – Democrats could learn a thing or two from this fine athletes. After his opponent’s missed a turn because of an equipment mal-function, Sergio Garrido chose not to shoot again either.

STATE ELECTIONS: The parties that control the state legislatures this year will be the ones redrawing the maps after the census. Going into the election, Republicans controlled 29 state legislatures compared to 19 for the Democrats.

Despite a major push and hundreds of millions of dollars spent by the Left, Democrats don’t appear to have taken control of any chambers. Arizona could still go their way depending on the final count. On the other hand, Republicans managed to pick up the New Hampshire House and Senate.

Seems just a TAD odd that the GOP did so well at the state level, maintained its hold on the U.S. Senate, AND picked up seats in the House of Representatives … but somehow or other elected Joe Biden?!

I. Don’t. Think. So.
