Rite of Eucharistic Exposition and Benediction with Sacred Heart Devotional Prayers
The presider places the luna with the host into the monstrance on the altar. Once the presider has reached the front of the altar and kneels, he will lead all in singing the O Salutaris or some other appropriate Eucharistic song. (Incense)
O saving Victim, op'ning wide To thy great name be endless praise, The gate of heav'n to us below, Immortal Godhead, One in three.
Our foes press on from ev'ry side; Oh, grant us endless length of days Thine aid supply, thy strength bestow. In our true native land with thee. (Amen.)
O salutaris Hostia Uni trinoque Domino
Quae coeli pandis ostium: Sit sempiterna gloria,
Bella premunt hostilia, Qui vitam sine termino
Da robur, fer auxilium Nobis donet in patria. (Amen.)
Act of Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
O Jesus, divine savior, deign to cast a look of mercy upon your children, who assemble in the same spirit of faith, reparation, and love, and come to deplore their own infidelities, and those of all poor sinners, their brothers and sisters.
May we touch your divine heart by the unanimous and solemn promises we are about to make and obtain mercy for ourselves, for the world, and for all who are so unhappy as not to love you. We all promise that for the future:
For the forgetfulness and ingratitude of men, we will console you, O Lord.
For the way you are deserted in your holy tabernacle, we will console you, O Lord.
For the crimes of sinners, we will console you, O Lord.
For the hatred of the impious, we will console you, O Lord.
For the blasphemies uttered against you, we will console you, O Lord.
For the sacrileges that profane your sacrament of love, we will console you, O Lord.
For the outrages against your divinity, we will console you, O Lord.
For the injuries of which you are the adorable victim, we will console you, O Lord.
For the coldness of the greater part of your children, we will console you, O Lord.
For the contempt of your loving invitation, we will console you, O Lord.
For the infidelity of those who called themselves your friends, we will console you, O Lord.
For the abuse of your grace, we will console you, O Lord.
For our own unfaithfulness, we will console you, O Lord.
For the incomprehensible hardness of our hearts, we will console you, O Lord.
For our long delay in loving you, we will console you, O Lord.
For our tepidity in your holy service, we will console you, O Lord.
For your bitter sadness at the loss of souls, we will console you, O Lord.
For your long waiting at the door of our hearts, we will console you, O Lord.
For the heartless scorn that grieves you, we will console you, O Lord.
For your loving sighs, we will console you, O Lord.
For your loving tears, we will console you, O Lord.
For your loving imprisonment, we will console you, O Lord.
For your loving death, we will console you, O Lord.
Let us pray: O Jesus! divine savior, from whose heart comes forth this bitter complaint, "I looked for one that would comfort me, and I found none," graciously accept the feeble consolation we offer you, and aid us so powerfully by your grace, that we may, for the time to come, shun more and more all that can displease you, and prove ourselves in everything, and everywhere, and forever your most faithful and devoted servants. We ask it through your Sacred Heart, O Lord, who live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit one God, forever and ever. Amen.
Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart
I, (name), give myself to the Sacred Heart of our Lord Jesus Christ, and I consecrate to him my person and my life, my actions, pains, and sufferings so that henceforth I shall be unwilling to make use of any part of my being except for the honor, love, and glory of the Sacred Heart.
My unchanging purpose is to be all his and to do all things for the love of him while renouncing with all my heart whatever is displeasing to him.
I take you, O Sacred Heart, as the only object of my love, the guardian of my Life, the assurance of my salvation, the remedy of my weakness and inconstancy, the atonement for all my faults, and the sure refuge at my death.
O heart of love, I place all my trust in you, for I fear everything from my own wickedness and frailty, but I hope for all things from your goodness and your bounty.
Consume in me all that can displease you or resist your holy will. Let your pure love imprint you so deeply upon my heart that I shall nevermore be able to forget you or be separated from you. May I obtain from all your loving kindness the grace of having my name written in you, for I desire to place in you all my happiness and all my glory, living and dying as one of your devoted servants. Amen.
-- St. Margaret Mary Alacoque
