I offer unto Thee the infinite satisfaction
rendered to Thy justice
on behalf of sinners upon the tree of the Cross;
and I pray that Thou wouldst make the merits of His Precious Blood
available to all guilty souls
to whom sin
has brought death;
may they rise again to the life
and glorify Thee for ever.

which made Him suffer death,
that it may please Thee to rekindle their hearts

that they may love Thee for ever.
I offer Thee the submission of Jesus
to Thy will,
and I ask of Thee,
through His merits,
the fullness of all grace
and the accomplishment of all Thy holy will.
Blessed be God!
