My Lord Jesus Christ, only Way to the Father,
Son of God, Divine Redeemer, Savior of the world,
I bless, adore, and glorify You.
I offer to You infinite praise for the sublime gift
of the Most Blessed Sacrament –
the Sacrament of Your Sacred Body and Precious Blood.
I beg of You mercy, grace, and peace upon this unworthy world,
and especially upon Your Holy Catholic Church.
I offer to You, O Eucharistic Lord,
my adoration, prayer, study, and good works,
my hardships, humiliations, temptations, and daily crosses.
I accept them and offer them up to You
in reparation for countless offenses against the Holy Eucharist:
for irreverent bishops, priests, deacons, and lay people,
for heresies, apostasies, and schisms,
for errors, trivialities, and novelties
preached in place of Gospel truth,
for deliberate violations of Church laws,
for myriad liturgical abuses,
for illicit additions and omissions to the sacred rites,
for reluctance to bend the knee,
for negligent familiarity with the sacred,
for scandalous behavior at the altar,
for perfunctory devotion and unworthy communions,
for unbelief and lukewarm faith,
for immodest dress and profane music,
for talk and laughter before the tabernacle,
for the neglect that is sacrilege,
for the laxity that is blasphemy,
for the ignorance that is indifference to revealed truth,
and for every evil assault upon the sanctity
of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
In reparation for all such godlessness within Your Church,
I offer to You, my Lord Jesus Christ,
all the difficulties of my life,
and most especially the anguish I feel
at the sight and sound of irreverence before the Holy Eucharist.
All that You have given to me
I accept and offer up to You,
my Eucharistic Lord,
in reparation for countless offenses
thrown at Your Most Holy Presence.
Have mercy upon Your Church, O Lord.
Defend her against the attacks of the devil.
Fill her with Your Spirit of Truth.
Embolden her with missionary zeal.
Animate her with the deepest devotion.
Arm her with scholars, saints, and martyrs.
Guide and protect Your vicar on earth.
Bless Your clergy and religious.
Inspire all the faithful to love and serve You
as courageous soldiers of Jesus Christ.
And may Your Holy Gospel be proclaimed
to all the nations until the end of time
with fortitude and fidelity
for the salvation of souls
and the glory of Your Thrice-Holy Name:
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
