Prayer of Reparation to the Sacred Heart
O Lord Jesus Christ, deign to look with mercy upon us who come to console Your Divine Heart and to make amends for our sins and the sins of mankind. May our promises touch Your Divine Heart, and obtain mercy for ourselves and for all the guilty world, particularly for those who do not know or love You.
For the forgetfulness and ingratitude of men,
**We will console You, Jesus. (Repeat)
For the abandonment of You in the Holy Tabernacles, **
For the crimes of sinners, **
For the hatred of the impious, **
For the injuries inflicted on Your Divinity, **
For the sacrileges which profane your Sacrament of love, **
For the irreverence committed in Your holy presence, **
For the perfidy of which You are the adorable Victim, **
For the coldness of the greater number of Your children, **
For the little account they make of Your Love, **
For the infidelities of those who call themselves Your friends, **
For our resistance to Your grace, **
For our own resistance and infidelities, **
For the hardness of our hearts, **
For our long delay in loving You, **
For the bitter sadness You feel at the loss of souls, **
For Your long waiting at the door of our hearts, **
For the bitter insults heaped upon You, **
For Your sighs of love, **
For Your tears love, **
For your martyrdom of love,**
O Divine Jesus, whose Sacred Heart uttered this sorrowful complaint: "I sought for one to console Me and found none," deign to accept this poor offering of our love and consolation. Assist us with the power of your grace, that shunning more and more all that is displeasing to You, we may prove ourselves Your devoted children always and everywhere. We ask this through Your Divine Heart, Who with the Father and the Holy Spirit live and reign world without end. Amen.
