L: Jesus, meek and humble of heart










All: Make our hearts like unto yours










L: Let us pray, Almighty and Eternal God, look upon the heart of your Beloved Son, and upon the praise and satisfaction, He offers you in behalf of sinners, and being appeased, grant pardon to those who seek in Your mercy in the name of the same Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit , world without end. Amen.




















All: Adorable heart of Jesus, glowing with love for us and inflamed with zeal for our salvation. O Heart ever sensible of our misery and the wretchedness to which our sins have reduced us, infinitely rich and mercy to heal the wounds of our souls, behold us humbly prostrate before You, to express the sorrow that fills our hearts for the coldness and indifference with which we have so long requited, the numberless benefits You have conferred upon us.










With a deep sense of the outrages heaped upon You, by our sins and the sins of others, we come to make a solemn reparation of honor to Your Most Sacred Majesty. It was our sins that overwhelm your heart with bitterness. It was the weight of our iniquities that pressed down your face on the earth in the garden of Olives, and caused you to expire in anguish and agony on the Cross. But now, repenting and sorrowful, we cast ourselves at Your feet, and implore forgiveness.










Adorable Heart of Jesus, source of true contrition and ever merciful to the penitent of sinners; impart to our hearts the spirit of penance, and give to our eyes a fountain of tears, that we may sincerely bewail our sins, now and for the rest of our days. Oh, would that we could blot them out, even with our blood.










Pardon them O Lord, in Your mercy, and pardon and convert to You all that have committed irreverences and sacrileges against You, in the sacrament of Your love, and thus give another proof, that Your mercy is above all Your works.










Divine Jesus, with You, there is mercy and plentiful redemption, deliver us from our sins, accept the sincere desire we now entertain, and our holy resolution, relying on the assistance of Your grace, henceforth to be faithful to You, and in order to repair the sins and ingratitude by which we have grieved Your most tender and loving heart, we are resolved in the future to love and honor You, in the most adorable Sacrament of the altar where You are present to hear and grant our petitions, and to be the food and life of our souls.










Be, O compassionate Jesus, our mediator with Your Heavenly Father, whom we have so grievously offended. Strengthened our weakness, confirm our resolutions of amendment, and as Your Sacred Heart is our refuge and our hope when we have sinned, so may it be the strength and support of our repentance, that nothing in life or death may ever separate us from you, Amen.














(To be read on the last day before departure of the Sacred Heart)










O beloved Jesus, the moment has arrived for your departure from our home, which had also been your home for seven /——– days of your stay with us. Our lips cannot express the joy overflowing in our hearts. Led by Your love, You desire to be with us even for only a while. Thank You, Jesus. Come back some other day. We will wait with profound ardor. Never allow us to forget You nor to stay away from your care, now and forever, Amen.










O Heart of Jesus, meek and humble of hearts, make our hearts like unto Thine, Amen.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in You.
