Chaplet of the Holy Virtues

The chaplet, recited three times daily, can restore the virtues in the sanctity of our souls.  The following message was reportedly given to Theresa at St. Thomas More parish in Denver during the recitation of the Rosary:
"My Dear One,  these instructions are for the prayers to obtain the Virtues.  Three times each day, I ask you to pray the Chaplet of Holy Virtues.  Once upon rising, again at midday, and upon retiring.  Begin with the creed, then the consecration to My Immaculate Heart, then the Angelus.  You will name each virtue.  Recite each decade for these virtues: Faith, Hope, Charity, Humility, Patience, Perseverance, and Obedience."

My Queen, my Mother, I give myself entirely to Thee and to show my devotion to Thee, I consecrate to Thee this day, my eyes, my mouth, my heart, my whole being without reserve.  Wherefore good Mother, as I am Thine own, keep me, guard me as Thy property and possession.  Amen.

The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary, and she conceived of the Holy Spirit.  Hail Mary
Behold the handmaid of the Lord, be it done unto me according to Thy word.  Hail Mary

Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray:
Pour forth, we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts, that we to whom the Incarnation of Christ, Thy Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by His passion and cross be brought to the glory of His resurrection, through the same Christ, Our Lord.  Amen.

Come Holy Spirit enlighten my heart to see the things which are of God.  Come Holy Spirit into my mind that I may know the things that are of God.  Come Holy Spirit into my soul that I belong only to God.  Sanctify all that I think, say and do, that all will be for the glory of God.  Amen.
