An Act of Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

(For the First Friday of the Month)



Adorable Heart of Jesus, glowing with love for us and inflamed with zeal for

our salvation: O Heart! ever sensible of our misery and the wretchedness to

which our sins have reduced us, infinitely rich in mercy to heal the wounds

of our souls, behold us humbly prostrate before Thee to express the sorrow

that fills our hearts for the coldness and indifference with which we have so

long requited the numberless benefits that Thou hast conferred upon us.

With a deep sense of the outrages that have been heaped upon Thee by our

sins and the sins of others, we come to make a solemn reparation of honor

to thy most sacred majesty. It was our sins that overwhelmed Thy Heart

with bitterness; it was the weight of our iniquities that pressed down Thy

face to the earth in the Garden of Olives, and caused Thee to expire in

anguish and agony on the cross. But now, repenting and sorrowful, we cast

ourselves at Thy feet, and implore forgiveness.

Adorable Heart of Jesus, source of true contrition and ever merciful to the

penitent sinner, impart to our hearts the spirit of penance, and give to our

eyes a fountain of tears, that we may sincerely bewail our sins now and for

the rest of our days. Oh, would that we could blot them out, even with our

blood! Pardon them, O Lord, in Thy mercy, and pardon and convert to Thee

all that have committed irreverences and sacrileges against Thee in the

sacrament, of Thy love, and thus give another proof that Thy mercy is above

all Thy works. Divine Jesus, with Thee there are mercy and plentiful

redemption; deliver us from our sins, accept the sincere desire we now

entertain, and our holy resolution, relying on the assistance of Thy grace,

henceforth to be faithful to Thee. And in order to repair the sins of

ingratitude by which we have grieved Thy most tender and loving Heart, we

are resolved in the future ever to love and honor Thee in the most adorable

Sacrament of the Altar, where Thou art ever present to hear and grant our

petitions, and to be the food and life of our souls. Be Thou, O compassionate

Jesus! our Mediator with Thy heavenly Father, Whom we have so grievously

offended, strengthen our weakness, confirm these our resolutions of

amendment, and as Thy Sacred Heart is our refuge and our hope when we

have sinned, so may it be the strength and support of our repentance, that

nothing in life or death may ever again separate us from Thee. Amen.

Prayer of Consecration to the Sacred Heart 

is a  Roman Catholic prayer composed by Pope Leo XIII.

Most sweet Jesus,

Redeemer of the human race,

look down upon us humbly prostrate before Thine altar.

We are Thine, and Thine we wish to be;

but to be more surely united with Thee,

behold each one of us freely consecrates himself today to Thy most Sacred Heart.

Many indeed have never known Thee;

many too, despising Thy precepts, have rejected Thee.

Have mercy on them all, most merciful Jesus,

and draw them to Thy sacred Heart.

Be Thou King, O Lord,

not only of the faithful who have never forsaken Thee,

but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned Thee;

grant that they may quickly return to Thy Father's house

lest they die of wretchedness and hunger.

Be Thou King of those who are deceived by erroneous opinions,

or whom discord keeps aloof,

and call them back to the harbor of truth and unity of faith,

so that there may be but one flock and one Shepherd.

Be Thou King of all those who are still involved in the darkness

of idolatry or of Islamism,

and refuse not to draw them into the light and kingdom of God.

Turn Thine eyes of mercy towards the children of the race,

once Thy chosen people:

of old they called down upon themselves the Blood of the Savior;

may it now descend upon them a laver of redemption and of life.

Grant, O Lord, to Thy Church

assurance of freedom and immunity from harm;

give peace and order to all nations,

and make the earth resound from pole to pole with one cry:

"Praise be to the divine Heart that wrought our salvation;

to It be glory and honor for ever."
