Reparation for Offenses Against Life

Please consider donating.


Sacred Heart of Jesus, we offer you an act of reparation for the indifference often shown to you. We ourselves have been inattentive many times. Not only do we now ask your pardon but we also declare our readiness to atone both for our personal offenses and for the faults of others.

We are resolved to expiate every outrage committed against you. We wish to make amends too for the injustices perpetrated against the poor and unprotected.

In reparation for all violations of your divine honor and of the rights of our fellowmen, we offer the satisfaction you once made to your Eternal Father on the cross and which you continue to renew daily on our altars. In union with the faithful on earth, we promise to make recompense, as far as we can, for all neglect of your great love and for the sins we and others have committed.

Loving Jesus, through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, deign to receive our act of reparation and keep us faithful to you, so that we may one day come to that home where you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.


Jesus, Redeemer of the human race, we freely consecrate ourselves today to your Most Sacred Heart. We grieve that many do not yet know you; many, too, reject you. Have mercy on them all, most merciful Jesus, and draw them to your Sacred Heart.

We pray that you, O Lord, will be King not only of the faithful who have never forsaken you, but also of the prodigals. Grant that all may be admitted to your Father’s house.

We pray, too, that you will be King of those who are now deceived by erroneous opinions, or whom discord keeps unmindful of you. Call them to believe in you so that soon there may be but one flock and one Shepherd.

Grant, O Lord, to all your people, assurance of freedom and immunity from harm; give tranquility to all nations; make the world resound from pole to pole with one cry: Praise to the divine Heart that made possible our salvation; to it be glory and honor for ever. Amen.
