Act of Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, animated with a desire to repair the outrages unceasingly offered to Thee, we prostrate before Thy throne of mercy, and in the name of all mankind, pledge our love and fidelity to Thee.
The more Thy mysteries are blasphemed, the more firmly we shall believe them, O Sacred Heart of Jesus!

The more impiety endeavors to extinguish our hope of immortality, the more we shall trust in Thy Heart, sole Hope of mankind!

The more hearts resist Thy Divine attractions, the more we shall love Thee, O infinitely amiable Heart of Jesus!

The more unbelief attacks Thy Divinity, the more humbly and profoundly we shall adore It, O Divine Heart of Jesus!

The more Thy holy laws are transgressed and ignored, the more we shall delight to observe them, O most holy Heart of Jesus!

The more Thy Sacraments are despised and abandoned, the more frequently we shall receive them with love and reverence, O most generous Heart of Jesus!

The more the imitation of Thy virtues is neglected and forgotten, the more we shall endeavor to practice them, O Heart, model of every virtue!

The more the devil labors to destroy souls, the more we shall be inflamed with desire to save them, O Heart of Jesus, zealous Lover of souls!

The more sin and impurity destroy the image of God in man, the more we shall try by purity of life to be a living temple of the Holy Spirit, O Heart of Jesus!

The more Thy Holy Church is despised, the more we shall endeavor to be her faithful children, O Sweet Heart of Jesus!

The more Thy Vicar on earth is persecuted, the more will we honor him as the infallible head of Thy Holy Church, show our fidelity and pray for him, O kingly Heart of Jesus!

O Sacred Heart, through Thy powerful grace, may we become Thy apostles in the midst of a corrupted world, and be Thy crown in the kingdom of Heaven. Amen.

He performs wonders
that cannot be fathomed,
miracles that
cannot be counted.
Job 5:9

Praise to the Holy Name of JESUS

O Glorious Name of Jesus,
gracious Name,
Name of love and of power!
Through You sins are forgiven,
enemies are vanquished,
the sick are freed from illness,
the suffering are made strong and cheerful.
You bring honor to believers,
instruction to preachers,
strength to those who toil,
and sustenance to the weary.

Our love for You is ardent and glowing,
through You our prayers are heard.
The souls of those who contemplate You
are filled to overflowing;
and all the blessed in heaven
are filled with Your glory.
Grant that we too may reign with them
through this Your most Holy Name. Amen.

CONTEMPORARY PRAYER OF REPARATION
 
Lord Jesus Christ, we look at the Cross, and we , your pilgrim Church, can see what sin has done to the son of Mary, to the Son of God.  But now you are risen and glorified.  You suffer no more in the flesh.  Sin can no longer expose You to the agony of the garden, to the scourging to death on a cross. 
 
But it can reach you through your Mystical Body.  This part of you, your Church on earth, still feels the strength of sin.  For this we make our act of reparation. 
 
We, who have sinned in the past, now consecrate ourselves to the healing of your Mystical Body, to our part in the mystery of its well being and its growth.  Sanctify us for this task.
 
May Your Sacred Heart be the symbol, not of one love but two--Your love for us and ours for You.  Accept our love, and help us make it real by serving You in our brothers and sisters, so that love and concern may lead all people "to know the one true God and Jesus Christ who He has sent.  Amen

Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, to Thee I consecrate and offer up my person and my life, my actions, trials, and sufferings, that my entire being may henceforth only be employed in loving, honoring and glorifying Thee. This is my irrevocable will, to belong entirely to Thee, and to do all for Thy love, renouncing with my whole heart all that can displease Thee.

I take Thee, O Sacred Heart, for the sole object of my love, the protection of my life, the pledge of my salvation, the remedy of my frailty and inconstancy, the reparation for all the defects of my life, and my secure refuge at the hour of my death. Be Thou, O Most Merciful Heart, my justification before God Thy Father, and screen me from His anger which I have so justly merited. I fear all from my own weakness and malice, but placing my entire confidence in Thee, O Heart of Love, I hope all from Thine infinite Goodness. Annihilate in me all that can displease or resist Thee. Imprint Thy pure love so deeply in my heart that I may never forget Thee or be separated from Thee.
I beseech Thee, through Thine infinite Goodness, grant that my name be engraved upon Thy Heart, for in this I place all my happiness and all my glory, to live and to die as one of Thy devoted servants.

Amen.

. -- St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

 

THE CHAPLET
OF THE SACRED HEART

How to pray the Chaplet of the Sacred Heart

This devotion to the Sacred Heart is prayed on the regular Marian Rosary of 59 beads.

On the Crucifix, say the following prayer:

"Angel of God, my guardian dear,
To whom God's love commits me here,
Ever this day be at my side,
To light and guard, to rule and guide."

On the first bead (normally the "Our Father"), say:

"O Eternal Father,
I offer Thee the Blood,
Passion and death of Our Lord Jesus Christ
and the sorrows of Our Blessed Lady
and St. Joseph in reparation for my sins,
in suffrage for the souls in Purgatory,
for the wants of our Holy Church,
and for the conversion of sinners."

On the three beads (normally the "Hail Marys"), say:

"My God, I believe in Thee.
My God, I hope in Thee.
My God, I love Thee with my whole heart,
and for Thy sake I love my neighbor as myself."

On each of the single beads of the 5 decades, (normally an "Our Father"):

"Jesus, meek and humble of heart,
make my heart like unto Thine.
O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for me."

On the 5 sets of 10 beads (Normally the "Hail Marys"), say:

"Sweetest Heart of Jesus,
I implore, that I may love Thee more and more.
Sweet Heart of Mary, be thou my salvation."

When you have concluded, say

"Jesus, Mary, and Joseph,
I give you my heart and soul.

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph,
assist me now and in my last agony.

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph,
may I breathe forth my soul in peace with you."
