Prayer of the Month

Prayer Manual

Act of Reparation to the Blessed Virgin Mary

 

*Since the Protestant Reformation, many Christians have not only downplayed devotion to Mary but also attacked Marian doctrines (such as her perpetual virginity) that are attested from the earliest days of the Church. During this month of May - dedicated to the Blessed Virgin and the Holy Rosary, we offer praise to Virgin Mary and to the Holy Trinity in reparation for offenses against the Mother of God.

Act of Reparation to the Blessed Virgin

Mary O blessed Virgin, Mother of God, look down in mercy from heaven, where thou art enthroned as Queen, upon me, a miserable sinner, thine unworthy servant. Although I know full well my own unworthiness, yet in order to atone for the offenses that are done to thee by impious and blasphemous tongues, from the depths of my heart I praise and extol thee as the purest, the fairest, the holiest creature of all God's handiwork. I bless thy holy name, I praise thine exalted privilege of being truly Mother of God, ever virgin, conceived without stain of sin, co-redemptrix of the human race.

I bless the Eternal Father who chose thee in an especial way for His daughter; I bless the Word Incarnate who took upon Himself our nature in thy bosom and so made thee His Mother; I bless the Holy Spirit who took thee as His bride. All honor, praise and thanksgiving to the ever-blessed Trinity, who predestined thee and loved thee so exceedingly from all eternity as to exalt thee above all creatures to the most sublime heights.

O Virgin, holy and merciful, obtain for all who offend thee the grace of repentance, and graciously accept this poor act of homage from me thy servant, obtaining likewise for me from thy divine Son the pardon and remission of all my sins.

Amen.
