Or if you don't have one, your fingers will do nicely. (I pray the rosary in class before tests using my fingers because teachers have complained the rosary itself is distracting).
Why? Well, it's time I did something relating to the theme of this blog.
For those (like me) who have some difficulty concentrating, videos like this can be quite helpful for contemplation. I suggest starting and immediately pausing the second video, so it can load early and there won't be as much of an interruption to break your frame of mind.

The Divine Mercy is the miracle of Jesus Christ, "Who humbled himself to share in our humanity." The Divine Mercy prayers glorify this fact, that Jesus came down to be one with us, to embrace our brokenness and our sorrow, that we might be whole. It is for this that he willingly suffered and rose from the dead. In rising, He did more than triumph over death--He raised us to new life. He calls out to us: that we might accept creation of our new life with Him. We plead: Help us Lord, "for the sake of His sorrowful passion" send forth Your Spirit, give us the Grace we need to accept our crosses so that we may yet rise to new life with Him--our Lord Jesus Christ, to the Glory of God the Father.
"Amen" we say, meaning, "We believe!"
For there is nothing greater that we can offer than the holy sacrifice of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
For this I say: We are saved by Grace and Mercy alone.
"Jesus, We Trust in You!"
