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.
