A LITANY OF REPARATION

18 Jan

A LITANY OF REPARATION
FOR RECITAL DURING ADORATION OR ANYWHERE ELSE

Lord, have mercy on us.
Christ, have mercy on us.
Lord, have mercy on us.

God, the Father of Mercy, – have mercy on us. (repeat after each line)
God the Son, Mediator between God and man,
God the Holy Spirit, Enlightener of hearts,
Holy and undivided Trinity,

O Sacred Host! Victim of reparation for the sins of the world,
O Sacred Host! Immolated on the altar for us and by us,
O Sacred Host! Despised and neglected,
O Sacred Host! Outraged by the blasphemies of men,
O Sacred Host! Neglected and abandoned in your temples, – have mercy on us.

Be merciful unto us, – spare us, O Lord.
Be merciful unto us, – hear us, O Lord.

For so many unworthy Communions, – we offer You our reparation, O Lord.
For the irreverence of Christians,
For the continual blasphemies of the impious,
For the infamous discourses made in Your holy temples,
For the crimes of sinners,
For the sacrileges which profane Your Sacrament of Love,
For the coldness of Your children,
For their contempt of Your loving invitations,
For the infidelity of those who call themselves Your friends,
For the abuse of Your grace,
For our unfaithfulness,
For our delay in loving You,
For our tepidity in Your holy service,
For Your bitter sadness at the loss of souls,
For Your long waiting at the door of our heart,
For Your loving sighs,
For Your loving tears,
For Your loving imprisonment,
For Your loving death, – we offer You our reparation, O Lord.

That You spare us, that You hear us, – we sinners beseech You, hear us.
That You will make known Your love for us in this Most Holy Sacrament, –
That You will vouchsafe to accept our reparation, made in the spirit of humility, – we sinners beseech You, hear us.

Lamb of God, You take away the sins of the world, – spare us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, You take away the sins of the world, – hear us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, You take away the sins of the world, – have mercy on us, O Lord.

(With Ecclesiastical Approbation – Archdiocese of Chicago)
