which Thy beloved Son,
our blessed Redeemer, made of Himself on the cross
and now renews on this altar.
I offer it in union with all the Masses
which have been said and which shall be said throughout the whole world,
for all the intentions and interests of the Sacred Heart of Jesus,

in thanksgiving for the numberless benefits

and in atonement for the sins of all mankind;

for the wants of our holy Mother the Church,
for the conversion
for the propagation of the Faith,
and for relief of the souls in purgatory.
