ACT OF REPARATION TO
RECITED ON THE FIRST SATURDAYS
O MOST holy Virgin and our Mother,
with grief to the complaints of thine Immaculate Heart surrounded with
the thorns which ungrateful men place therein at every moment by their
blasphemies and ingratitude. Moved by the ardent desire of loving thee
as our Mother and of promoting a true
devotion to thy
Heart, we prostrate ourselves at thy feet to prove the sorrow we feel
the grievances that men cause thee, and to atone, by means of our
and sacrifices, for the offenses with which men return thy tender love.
Obtain for them and for us the
many sins. A word from thee will obtain grace and amendment for us all.
Hasten, O Lady, the conversion of
that they may love Jesus and cease to offend the Lord, already so much
offended and will not fall into Hell.
Turn thy eyes of mercy toward us
we may love God with all our heart while on earth and enjoy Him forever
in Heaven. Amen.
NOTE: Confession during the week,
the first Friday, will suffice for the first Saturday, or conversely
Saturday is the first day of the month. The Rosary may be recited at
convenient time of the day, and the fifteen-minute meditation may be
at any time during the day on one or more of the fifteen mysteries of
Rosary. A sermon for the occasion may be substituted for the
Meditation consists in thinking over the events as if one were present
at the happenings mentioned in the mystery, or in considering what one
would have done had he been present during the event considered in a
mystery, all in the spirit of reparation to the Immaculate Heart.
ACT OF CONSECRATION
TO THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY
QUEEN of the Most Holy Rosary,
Human Race, Victress in all God's battles, we humbly prostrate
throne, confident that we shall receive mercy, grace and bountiful
and protection in the present calamity, not through our own inadequate
merits, but solely through the great goodness of thy Maternal Heart.
To thee, to thy Immaculate Heart in
humanity's tragic hour, we consign and consecrate ourselves in union
not only with the
Body of thy Son, Holy Mother Church, now in such suffering and agony in
so many places and sorely tried in so many ways, but also with the
world, torn by fierce strife, consumed in a fire of hate, victim of its
May the sight of the widespread
moral destruction of the sorrows and anguish of countless fathers and
husbands and wives, brothers and sisters, and innocent children of the
great number of lives cut off in the flower of youth, of the bodies
in horrible slaughter, and of the tortured and agonized souls in danger
of being lost eternally move thee to compassion. O Mother of Mercy
peace for us from God, and, above all, procure for us those graces
prepare, establish and assure the peace.
Queen of Peace, pray for us and give
world now at war, the peace for which all peoples are longing, peace in
the truth, justice and charity of Christ. Give peace to the warring
and to the souls of men, that in the tranquillity of order the Kingdom
of God may prevail.
Extend thy protection to the
to all those still in the shadow of death give them peace and grant
on them, too, may shine the sun of truth that they may unite with us in
proclaiming before the one and only Savior of the World: "Glory to God
in the highest and peace to men of good will."
Give peace to the peoples separated
or by discord and especially to those who profess such singular
to thee, and in whose homes an honored place was ever accorded thy
image today, perhaps often kept hidden to await better days bring them
back to the one fold of Christ, under the one true Shepherd.
Obtain peace and complete freedom
Holy Church of God, stay the spreading flood of modern paganism;
in the faithful the love of purity, the practice of the Christian life
and an apostolic zeal so that the servants of God may increase in merit
and in number.
Lastly, as the Church and the entire
race were consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, so that in reposing
all hope in Him, He might become for them the sign and pledge of
and salvation; so we, in like manner, consecrate ourselves forever also
to thee and to thine Immaculate Heart, our Mother and Queen, that thy
and patronage may hasten the triumph of the Kingdom of God and that all
nations, at peace with one another and with God may proclaim thee
and with thee may raise their voices to resound from pole to pole the
of the everlasting Magnificat of glory, love and gratitude to the Heart
of Jesus, where alone they can find truth and peace.
