I offer it unto Thee with the utmost affection of devotion, out of pure love for Thine Infinite Goodness, and according to the most holy intention of the same our Lord, and of our holy mother Church: 1. To the great and eternal glory and love of Thy divine Majesty. 2. In acknowledgement of Thy sovereign excellence and supreme dominion over us, and of our subjection to Thee, and dependence upon Thee. 3. In perpetual commemoration of the Passion and Death of the same Christ our Lord. 4. For the honor and increase of glory of the Blessed Virgin, and of all the saints triumphant. 5. In eternal thanksgiving for all Thy benefits, conferred upon the most Sacred Humanity of our Lord, upon the Blessed Virgin His Mother, upon the saints my patrons; and for all the benefits hitherto or yet to be conferred upon all the blessed and predestinated, and upon me, the most unworthy of all. 6. In satisfaction for my sins, and for the sins of all the faithful, living or dead. 7. In particular, I offer it for (intention), and for (N,N), and for all whom I am accustomed or bound to pray; that Thou would grant to the departed, rest, and to the living, grace, to know, love and glorify Thee perfectly now in this life, and hereafter blissfully in Heaven. Accept and perfect this my desire, and vouchsafe Thy abundant grace and blessing for its accomplishment. O Jesus, infinitely to be loved! Who by the will of the Father and the co-operation of the Holy Ghost hast not only vouchsafed to give Thyself once to us as our friend, food, sacrifice, ransom, and all the necessities of life; grant also peace in our days, freedom from tempests, and fruitful seasons. Grant also to our prayers the unity of the Catholic faith, the extirpation of heresies, the destruction of wicked counsels, the increase of orthodox religion, fervor of love and piety, sincere devotion, patience, and long-suffering in affliction, and joy in hope. Finally, grant us all the things needful for the welfare of our souls and bodies, but, above all, whatever may promote the increase of Thy Glory. Through our Lord... I give Thee all possible praise and thanks, O Sovereign Creator, that Thou hast permitted me this day to be present, and to assist at this Holy Sacrifice. Receive, O Lord, My unworthy prayers, supply all my defects, pardon all my distractions and indevotions; and grant that by the strength and virtue of those Divine Mysteries, I may go on cheerfully in the path of Thy Commandments, love, and service, amidst all the temptations, troubles, and dangers of my life's pilgrimage, till I shall one day happily arrive at Thy Heavenly Kingdom, where, with the blessed angels and saints, I shall more clearly contemplate Thee, more perfectly enjoy Thee, and more worthily celebrate Thy Infinite Goodness and Mercy, with uninterrupted canticles of eternal praise, admiration, and gratitude. Happy are they who dwell in Thy Hose, O Lord; forever and ever they will praise Thee. Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive honor, glory, and power. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Act of Reparation Eternal Father, turn away Thine eyes from the hideous spectacle of our sins, and in lieu of this hateful sight, look rather upon the Face of Thy beloved Son which we offer Thee; the voice of His Blood pleads for mercy in our behalf. Consider, O Eternal Father, the agony of Jesus in the Garden of Olives, the sweat of blood which welled forth from His Body and soaked the very earth. These do we offer Thee, to appease Thy justice and draw down Thy mercy upon us, and upon all sinners, the grace of conversion. We offer Thee, O Eternal Father, the streams of Blood which gushed forth from the innumerable wounds of Jesus' sacred Body, when torn by the scourges at the pillar. Deign, O most merciful Father, to accept this adorable Body, as a reparation for the outrages which sinners commit in their body, neath the very eye of Thy most pure and holy Majesty. We offer Thee the sacred Head of Jesus, all mangled by the crown of thorns, in reparation for the wicked plans conceived in the guilty minds of countless sinners, and we ask for them the grace of repentance and of a serious application to thoughts of their salvation and eternity. We conjure Thee, O offended Father, to look upon Thy Beloved Son, laden with His Cross and watering with His Blood the path that leads to Calvary. We offer this painful and ignominious journey, in reparation for the criminal conduct of wretched sinners, who ever run in the ways of iniquity, and wallow in the mire and filth of sin. Eternal Father, consider the Wounds of the Sacred Body of Thy Son Jesus, and deign to apply to us the merits of the Blood shed in the midst of such excessive pain. May Thine outraged mercy deign to accept the offering of these bloody Wounds as an expiation for the sins of men, and a healing balm for all our spiritual maladies. Eternal Father, consider Thy Beloved Son fastened to the Cross by enormous nails, satiated with outrages, blasphemed, His sacred side opened by the lance and giving out, drop by drop, His Precious Blood for our salvation. In contemplating Him thus, deign to remember Thy mercies and to receive this infinite reparation which we offer Thee together with our unworthy practices of immolation and penance. Eternal Father, look upon the adorable Face of Jesus, all bruised and covered with Blood. We offer it to Thee to appease Thy just anger awakened by the sight of the face of all poor wretched sinners so hideously disfigured by their sins. Finally, O Eternal Father, cast Thine eyes on Thy dead Christ, the victim of our iniquities. Consider His Cross all bathed in His Precious Blood; yield to Thy tender mercy at this prodigal effusion of His Blood; be moved by the Blood which gushed forth from His Sacred Heart even after His death, because of His burning love, and grant us mercy, in view of the Reparation which He offered Thee throughout His Passion and Death. Amen. Prayer for the Conversion of Those Who Have Practiced Contraception Jesus, Mary and Joseph, the Holy Family of Nazareth, assist those who are currently using contraception, those intending to, and those who have previously and have not repented. Help them to see that the conjugal embrace is sacred and meant for procreation and for deepening the communion between husband and wife. Enlighten them to know that contraception is a refusal to surrender to God's will for marriage and the family. Convince them to understand that contraception in our society ensures that abortion will remain, the virtue of chastity will be rejected, and the fidelity and self-giving necessary in marriage will be neglected. Inspire all to obey our Creator and to accept the authoritative teaching of the Catholic Church that every instance of the conjugal act is to be receptive to the possible transmission of human life. Direct those who have contracepted to seek pardon from the Lord so that hope and charity may reside in their souls. May they realize that forgiveness, manifested in the Sacrament of Penance before receiving Holy Communion, is possible and that their genuine atonement for this sin is the desire of the Almighty Who loves us. O Holy Family of Nazareth, guide us always! Amen. Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be. MORNING PRAYERS An Act of Spiritual Communion My Jesus, I believe that You are in the Blessed Sacrament.
