Act of Reparation before Holy Communion
as Thou didst endure for our salvation
the outrages of those who crucified Thee,
so now deignest to bear with those
who by careless or unworthy Communions
approach and touch Thee,
not discerning Thee,
and endurest all irreverences
rather than withhold Thy sacred Presence from our Altars:
I bewail these indignities,
and most earnestly desire to prevent,
to the utmost of my power,
whatever thus still grieves Thee.
I beseech Thee,
accept this sorrow and this desire as the only offering
I can make in reparation of so great dishonour.
O Lord, increase my faith,
and preserve me from the least profanation
of this adorable Mystery,
and kindle in me and in the hearts of all Thy people,
especially of all who celebrate or assist in its
such reverence and devotion
that Thy most holy name may more and more be honoured
and glorified in this Sacrament.
