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,

us and on the whole world. (Diary, 476)
Our Lord said to Blessed Faustine:
Unceasingly recite this chaplet that I have taught you.
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

Speak, Lord . . . Your Servant Listens +++
Prayer is, in the strictest sense, a humble religious petition of
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..........
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
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
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
And for me, do you feel an attraction for my glory? Do you not want to
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
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,
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
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
Will you be kind to that person who, because he offended you, you have
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.
