   The Lord said to Blessed Faustina:
       "You will recite this chaplet on the beads of the Rosary in the
       following manner:"

     First of all, you will say one Our Father, one Hail Mary, and the
     I Believe In God.

     Then:  On the Our Father Beads you will say the following words:

       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 Hail Mary Beads you will say the following words:

       For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on
       the whole world.

     In conclusion ThreeTimes you will recite these words:

       Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on
       us and on the whole world.   (Diary, 476)

     Our Lord said to Blessed Faustine:

     Unceasingly recite this chaplet that I have taught you. Whoever will
     recite it will receive great mercy at the hour of death ... Priest will
     recommend it to sinners as their last hope of salvation. Even the most
     hardened sinner, if he recites this chaplet even once, will receive
     grace from My infinite mercy (687) ... Oh, what great graces I will
     grant to souls who will recite this chaplet (848) ... Through the
     chaplet you will obtain anything, if what you ask for is compatible
     with My will (1731) ... I want the whole world to know My infinite
     mercy. I want to give unimaginable graces to those who trust in My
     mercy (687).

 
                     Speak, Lord . . . Your Servant Listens +++

  Prayer is, in the strictest sense, a humble religious petition of man to
  God to seek divine benevolence and benefits he needs for life, both temporal
  and eternal. It is a conversation with God, either by accepted prayer forms,
  or from the heart. Here, then, in conversational verse, is a hypothetical
  talk the Lord might have with us, His children..........


     It is not necessary my child, to know much in order to please me much;
  it is enough that you love me fervently. Speak here to me then, as you would
  speak to your most intimate friend, to your mother, to your brother.

     So, you want to ask me to do something for someone? Tell me his name. Is
  it your parents, your brothers, your friends? Tell me what you want me to
  do for them now. Ask much, very much: do not hesitate to ask. I love
  generous hearts who somehow can come to forget themselves to look after the
  needs of others. Speak sincerely to me then, of the poor you would console,
  of the sick you see suffering, of the strayed you yearn to see return to the
  right path, of those absent friends you want at your side again. Say at
  least one word for each, the ardent word of a friend. Remind me that I have
  promised to listen to every petition that arises from the heart, and is not
  a prayer for those whom your heart especially loves such a pray?

     And for you: do you need a particular favor? Make a list, as it were, of
  your needs, and come and read it in my presence.

     Tell me frankly that you are prone to anger, that you love sensuality
  and pleasure, that you are perhaps proud, variable, negligent . . . Ask me
  to come to the help of those efforts, many or few, which you undertake to
  free yourself from these faults.

     Do not be ashamed, poor soul; there are in Heaven so many saints who had
  these same defects; but they prayed humbly, and little by little they saw
  themselves freed from them.

     Do not hesitate to ask Me for spiritual and material goods; for health,
  memory, success in your work, enterprises and studies; all these I can give
  and I do give -- as long as they do not hinder, but rather assist your
  sanctification. Precisely today, what do you need? What can I do for you?
  If only you knew how much I would like to help you!

     Do you have, right now, some project in mind? Tell me everything in
  detail. What preoccupies you? What are you thinking? What do you want? What
  do you want me to do for your parents, your brothers, your children, your
  superiors? What would you want to do for them?

     And for me, do you feel an attraction for my glory? Do you not want to
  do something for those friends whom you love much but who perhaps live
  separated from me?

     Tell me what in particular attracts your attention today, what you desire
  most ardently and what means you have of obtaining it? Tell me if your plans
  are not working and I will tell you the causes of your difficulties. Do you
  not want to interest me in your quest? My dear one, I am the Lord of hearts
  and I move them, without violating their freedom, to wherever I please.

     Are you perhaps sad, or in bad humor? Tell me, tell me, you inconsolable
  soul, tell me your sorrows in all their details. Who wounded you? come close
  to my Heart, and find in it a refreshing balsam for the wounds in yours.
  Then, you will confess that, like me, you forgive everything, you forget
  everything. In appreciation, you will receive my consoling benediction.

     Are you perhaps afraid? Do you feel in your soul those vague stirrings of
  sadness which, however unjustified, can be so tearing? Throw yourself in the
  arms of my Providence. I am with you. I am at your side. I see everything.
  I hear everything. I shall not abandon you for one moment.

     Do you feel ignored by persons who loved you once but who now have for-
  gotten you without cause? Pray from them and I will bring them back to you
  if they are not obstacles to your salvation.

     And don't you have, perhaps, some joy to communicate to me? Why don't you
  let me share it with you, like a friend?

     Tell me what has consoled and gladdened your heart since yesterday, since
  you last visited me. Perhaps you have had an agreeable surprise; perhaps you
  have seen grave doubts dissipated, or you have received good news -- a
  letter, or perhaps a gesture of love. Maybe you have overcome some diffi-
  culty, or come out of a trying situation. All of this is my work. I have
  obtained this for you. Why not show me your gratitude and say, like a child
  to its father, "Thank you, my Father, thank you." Gratitude brings forth
  new gifts since benefactors, as you know, like to see themselves appreciated.

     Do you not have a promise to make to me? I read, you know, the bottom of
  hearts. Men are easily deceived, but not God. Speak to me, then honestly;
  do you have firm intentions of avoiding the occasion of sin? Of denying
  yourself that object that harmed your soul? Of not reading again that book
  which excited your imagination? Of avoiding that person who disturbed the
  peace of your soul?

     Will you be kind to that person who, because he offended you, you have
  regarded as an enemy?

     And now, my child return to your work, to your office, to your family,
  to your studies -- but do not forget these fifteen minutes of intimate
  conversation we have had in the privacy of the sanctuary. Keep as much as
  possible, silence, resignation, modesty, charity towards your neighbors.
  Love and honor my Mother, who is also your Mother. And please come again
  tomorrow with an even more fervent heart, to unite it to mine. In it you
  will find every day new love, new gifts, new consolation. Here I await you.
