New Prayers on the Web: The Chaplet of Divine Mercy

Through your support, KNOM Radio is a part of the daily and weekly religious life of thousands of rural Alaskans. Our station serves as a companion for prayer, with nightly broadcasts of the Rosary and the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, and for worship, with weekly broadcasts of Mass, aired live whenever possible from our own St. Joseph Catholic Church, a mere two blocks from KNOM studios in Nome.

In recent months, we’ve extended the reach of our own, KNOM-produced recordings of daily Catholic prayers by putting the four versions of the Rosary on this website, knom.org. We’ve been so gratified at the overwhelmingly positive response we’ve received, both from our supporters throughout the United States and from our listeners in northwestern Alaska, at the news of our online Rosary. In that spirit, we’re excited to announce that our Divine Mercy Chaplet is now also available online, as of June 2016.

Like the KNOM Rosary recordings, you can now visit this website to listen to our original recordings of the Divine Mercy Chaplet — and to download them for later use, such as in your smartphone, tablet, computer, music player, or car. The Divine Mercy Chaplet recordings on the web are exactly the same as those our Western Alaska listeners hear each evening — but available anytime, whether in the early morning, mid-day, or late at night. And also just like our Rosary, the chaplet prayers were produced not only for rural Alaska, but also by rural Alaskans; they were made in 2014 by Father Ross Tozzi alongside the Little Sisters of Jesus religious community (both pictured), who were, for more than 60 years, a vibrant part of our Western Alaska faith community.

The prayers themselves are special, too; the devotions, which are similar in form to the Rosary — and can be prayed using rosary beads — come from the visions of Jesus of recently-canonized Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska (under whose guidance the image of Divine Mercy, pictured above and in full detail below, was also originally made). And it’s a special time in which to pray them, since the Jubilee Year of Mercy proclaimed by Pope Francis, a year of special forgiveness, mercy, and solidarity, extends through November 20.

We encourage you to hear and download our Divine Mercy Chaplet prayers right here on our website. And while you’re here, drop us a line! Simply click here — or select “Contact” anytime in our top menu bar.
