Archbishop Eamon has asked us to bring the following sentiments and actions before Mary, our Blessed Mother, as an Act of Reparation and as part of the Five First Saturdays’ Devotion;
“O Most Holy Virgin, and Our Mother, we listen with grief to the complaints of your Immaculate Heart surrounded with the thorns placed therein at every moment by the blasphemies and ingratitude of ungrateful humanity. We are moved by the ardent desire of loving you as Our Mother and of promising a true devotion to Your Immaculate Heart.
We therefore kneel before You to manifest the sorrow we feel for the grievances that people cause You, and to atone by our prayers and sacrifices for the offences with which they return your love.
Obtain for them and for us the pardon of so many sins.
Hasten the conversion of sinners that they may love Jesus Christ and cease to offend the Lord, already so much offended.
Turn you eyes of mercy toward us, that we may love God with all our heart on earth and enjoy Him forever in Heaven.”
