Article on Catholic Exchange entitled “‘Marrying’ the Rosary to the Divine Mercy Chaplet” and Interview:

Interview with TJ Burdick:


Discover the rewards of uniting two of the Catholic Church’s most beloved devotions. In this new book, Shane Kapler provides 20 reflections – paired with 40 classic works of art – demonstrating the riches that flow from interspersing our praying of the decades of the Rosary with the Divine Mercy Chaplet. By marrying the two together in this way, the mysteries of the Rosary reveal the Cross’s relationship to every aspect of our Lord’s life, and the Chaplet becomes a means for joining Mary at the foot of her Son’s Cross and invoking God’s mercy upon ourselves and our world.

“What better union could there be?  What incredible fruit will come from this form of devotion! I’m quite certain that St. Faustina Kowalska and St. John Paul II would both be very pleased to witness the marriage presented in this book. ” Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, author of Champions of the Rosary

“Shane Kapler’s book is an inspired work that I highly recommend! In Marrying the Rosary to the Divine Mercy Chaplet we discover a gift of prayer that is profound and practical. Daily, for twenty-five years, I’ve prayed the Rosary and the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, one following the other, and received amazing grace. Shane now presents an exquisite way of marrying two proven, powerful means of contemplation and intercession. I greatly appreciate the scriptural reflections for lectio divina. May the Holy Spirit who inspired this work, spread it far and wide, igniting a fire in the soul of every chosen reader.” Kathleen Beckman, L.H.S., Author: God’s Healing Mercy: Finding Your Path to Peace, Forgiveness and Joy and Praying for Priests: A Mission for the New Evangelization and President, “Foundation of Prayer for Priests”

“With beautiful language, penetrating theological insights, and palpable reverence, Shane Kapler’s Marrying the Rosary to the Divine Mercy Chaplet brings Mary to the foot of the cross with us as we gaze upon her son, meditate upon his life, death, and resurrection, and, together with his Blessed Mother, pray for Christ’s divine mercies. This booklet provides a clear, step-by-step guide to combining these prayers in a manner so deep that I have begun the practice myself and can hardly recommend it highly enough. Marrying the Rosary to the Divine Mercy Chaplet is a mini-masterpiece, not just to be read and re-read, but to be prayed and re-prayed.”  Kevin Vost, Psy.D., author of Memorize the Mass!

“Throughout this unique devotional, which combines the prayers of the rosary and the Divine Mercy chaplet, Shane Kapler encourages the reader to gaze upon Jesus through the eyes and heart of Mother Mary, while also petitioning God the Father for His mercy and grace. Kapler skillfully prompts the reader to prayerful contemplation—in essence, to allow Jesus to unfold the Scriptures and the Blessed Mother to meditate with you as she did on her journey to visit Elizabeth when her Son Jesus resided in her womb. This book will surely help one to grow in holiness. Highly recommended!”  – Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle, EWTN TV Host, speaker, and award-winning author of more than twenty books, including her memoir The Kiss of Jesus, and Feeding Your Family’s Soul: Dinner Table Spirituality.
