I unite myself with the intentions
and affections of our Lady of Sorrows on Calvary,
and I offer Thee the sacrifice
which Thy beloved Son Jesus
made of Himself on the Cross,
and now renews on this holy altar:
To adore Thee and give Thee the honour
which is due to Thee,
confessing Thy supreme dominion over all things,
and the absolute dependence of everything upon Thee,
Who art our one and last end.
To thank Thee for innumerable benefits received.
To appease Thy justice,

and to make satisfaction for them.
To implore grace
and mercy for myself, for [Mention the name of the person(s)],
for all afflicted and sorrowing,
for poor sinners,
for all the world,
and for the holy souls in purgatory.
