Litany of Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Litany of Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus We all promise that in the future: R. We Will Console You, O Lord For the forgetfulness and the ingratitude of human-kind... For Your abandonment in Your tabernacle... For the crimes of sinners... For the hatred of the irreligious... For the blasphemies against You... For the outrages to Your Divinity... For the sacrileges by which Your Sacrament of Love is profaned... For the immodesty and irreverence shown in Your adorable presence... For the betrayals of which You are the victim... For the coldness of the greater number of Your children... For the contempt offered to Your loving advances... For the infidelities of those who call themselves Your friends... For the abuse of Your grace... For our own unfaithfulness... For the hardness of our hearts... For our long delay in loving You... For our tepidity in Your holy service... For the bitter sadness into which the loss of souls plunges You... For Your long waiting at the doors of our hearts... For the bitter refusal which we make You... For Your sighs of love... For Your tears of love... For Your imprisonment of love... For Your martyrdom of love... Let Us Pray O Divine Savior Jesus, Who breathed forth from Your Heart this sorrowful complaint: I sought for those who could console Me, and I found none, accept the feeble tribute of our consolations, and help us powerfully with Your grace. For the future, flying more and more from all that could displease You, may we in everything and forever show ourselves to be Your faithful and devoted guards of honor. We ask this of You by Your Sacred Heart, O Jesus, Who as God, live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit forever and ever. Amen.
