ACT OF REPARATION FOR THE FIRST SATURDAYS OF THE MONTH
O Most Holy Virgin,
and Our Mother,
we listen with grief to the complaints
of your Immaculate Heart
surrounded with the thorns placed therein
at every moment by the blasphemies
and ingratitude of ungrateful humanity.
We are moved by the ardent desire
of loving you as Our Mother
and of promising a true devotion
to Your Immaculate Heart.
We therefore kneel before You
to manifest the sorrow we feel
for the grievances that people cause You,
and to atone by our prayers
and sacrifices for the offenses
with which they return your love.
Obtain for them
and for us the pardon of so many sins.
Hasten the conversion of sinners
that they may love Jesus Christ
and cease to offend the Lord,
already so much offended.
Turn your eyes of mercy toward us,
that we may love God
with all our heart on earth
and enjoy Him forever in Heaven.
