Chaplet of Divine Mercy ~ Chamorro Translation

I started compiling my recipes when my daughters were very young, intending to pass them on to them when they got older and took an interest in cooking.  I wanted them to learn about their Chamorro heritage, a large part of which centers around cooking.

Our language is another priceless treasure I want to pass on to them.  While not a very fluent speaker of our Chamorro language myself, I do know basic conversational words and phrases, most of which I’ve passed on to my  kids.  I’m now in the process of teaching them various prayers in Chamorro.

This post focuses on the translation of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.  Feel free to share it with your friends and family. 🙂

    Annie,

    Thank you for sharing The Chaplet of the Divine Mercy in our Chamorro language. I appreciate and admire our Chamorro people living outside of our island, who take pride in continuing to pass on our custom to their children, whether it be our food or song, or prayers in Chamorro.

    Growing up in Sinajana, I remember in the late ’60’s and early ’70’s my cousin Josephine (Martinez) Aflague taught me how to say the Nobenan Nino in songs and prayers, and I continue to say it yearly, and teaching now my grandchildren.

    Your website of our food recipes of the island is helpful for those wanting to learn that have been gone for long or for our visitors who’ve tasted our great food.

    Again, thank you for this great website, God bless you and your family.

      Thank you for your kind comments! I agree…passing on our heritage to our future generations through food, song, or prayer is priceless. I think it’s wonderful that your children and grandchildren are learning to recite Chamorro prayers!

      God bless you and your family as well.
