Act of Reparation for the First Saturday of the Month
Most holy Virgin and our beloved Mother, we listen with grief to the complaints of your Immaculate heart surrounded with the thorns which ungrateful people place therein at every moment by their blasphemies and ingratitude. Moved by the ardent desire of loving you as our Mother and of promoting a true devotion to the Immaculate Heart, we come before you to express the sorrow we feel for the grievances that people cause you. We want to atone, by means of our prayers and sacrifices, for the offences with which many return your tender love.
Obtain for them and for us the pardon of so many sins. A word from you will obtain grace and amendment for us all.
Hasten, O Mary, the conversion of sinners, that they may love Jesus and cease to offend the Lord, already so much offended, and thus not fall into hell.
Turn your eyes of mercy toward us, that henceforth we may love God with all our heart while on earth,and enjoy Him forever in heaven. amen.
