Act of Reparation to the Sacred Heart Prayer
Act of Reparation to the Sacred Heart
Jesus, ever present on our altars, we cast ourselves
at your feet, Overcome with sorrow at the sight
of the ingratitude which afflicts your heart.
Look on us, laden down with our own sins and
with the sins of all humankind, so that by this
homage, we may offer you acceptable atonement and
reparation. Have mercy on us, O Jesus. From the
Cross you forgave your executioner; pardon us also.
Listen to the pleadings of your Sacred Heart, and
our sins will be consumed in its love.
With the fire of you love, O Jesus, destroy in us
all that is displeasing To you and implant in
our hearts sentiments that will appease your
Justice. Sacred Heart of Jesus, be the salvation
of all Christians, the safeguard Of those who have
recourse to you, and the refuge of service, so
that we may finally share in the inheritance you
have reserved for those who love you. Amen,
