The Eucharist Part VIII: Litany of Reparation to the Blessed Sacrament

Jesus once told Saint Faustina how much He suffers because people don’t understand the Sacrament of Holy Communion and His Real Presence in the Eucharist.

“Oh, how painful it is to Me that souls so seldom unite themselves to Me in Holy Communion. I wait for souls, and they are indifferent toward Me. I love them tenderly and sincerely, and they distrust Me. I want to lavish My graces on them, and they do not want to accept them. They treat Me as a dead object, whereas My Heart is full of love and mercy.” (Diary, 1447)

To console Jesus and atone for the many offenses committed against Him, we can pray the Litany of Reparation to the Blessed Sacrament.

This prayer will also help us grow in love for Our Lord in the Eucharist.

The text is below.


Litany of Reparation to the Blessed Sacrament

Lord, have mercy on us. Lord, have mercy on us.
Christ, have mercy on us. Christ, have mercy on us.
Lord, have mercy on us. Lord, have mercy on us.

God the Father of Mercy, have mercy on us.
God the Son, Mediator between God and man, have mercy on us.
God the Holy Spirit, the Enlightener of hearts, have mercy on us.
Holy and undivided Trinity, have mercy on us.

O Sacred Host! Victim of reparation for the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
O Sacred Host! Annihilated on the altar for us and by us, have mercy on us.
O Sacred Host! Despised and neglected, have mercy on us.
O Sacred Host! Neglected and abandoned in Your temples, have mercy on us.

Be merciful unto us, spare us, O Lord.
Be merciful unto us, hear us, O Lord.

For so many unworthy Communions, we offer You our reparation, O Lord.
For the irreverence of Christians, we offer You our reparation, O Lord.
For the continual blasphemies of the impious, we offer You our reparation, O Lord.
For the infamous discourses made in Your Holy Temples, we offer You our reparation, O Lord.
For the crimes of sinners, we offer You our reparation, O Lord.
For the sacrileges which profane Your sacrament of love, we offer You our reparation, O Lord.
For the coldness of the greater part of Your children, we offer You our reparation, O Lord.
For their contempt of Your loving invitations, we offer You our reparation, O Lord.
For the infidelity of those who call themselves Your friends, we offer You our reparation, O Lord.
For the abuse of Your grace, we offer You our reparation, O Lord.
For our unfaithfulness, we offer You our reparation, O Lord.
For our delay in loving You, we offer You our reparation, O Lord.
For our tepidity in Your holy service, we offer You our reparation, O Lord.
For Your bitter sadness at the loss of souls, we offer You our reparation, O Lord.
For Your long waiting at the door of our hearts, we offer You our reparation, O Lord.
For Your loving sighs, we offer You our reparation, O Lord.
For Your loving tears, we offer You our reparation, O Lord.
For Your loving imprisonment, we offer You our reparation, O Lord.
For Your loving death, we offer You our reparation, O Lord.

That You spare us, that You hear us, we sinners beseech You, hear us.
That You will make known Your love for us in this most Holy Sacrament, we sinners beseech You, hear us.
That You will vouchsafe to accept our reparation, made in the spirit of humility, we sinners beseech You, hear us.

Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, spare us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, graciously hear us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us, O Lord.

Let us pray.

Lord Jesus, Who has chosen to expose Yourself to all the outrages of the impious rather than withdraw Your Sacred Body from our churches, grant us the grace to bewail, with true bitterness of heart, the injuries and sacrileges committed against you, and to repair as far as lies in our power, and with sincere love, the many ignominies and contempts You have received, and still continue to receive, in this ineffable mystery, Who lives and reigns with God the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, forever and ever. Amen.
