Act of Reparation from Fr. Stedman

O good Jesus, in gratitude for Thy many Graces, and in sorrow for many abuses of these Graces, I wish at this moment, both for myself, ever ungrateful and for the world, ever criminal, to make an Act of Solemn reparation. Listen then, O merciful Savior of our souls, listen to these Acts of faith, to these expressions of sorrow:

For the irreverence we have committed in the House of God.
I wish to make reparation.
For the careless and distracted attendance at Sunday Mass.
I wish to make reparation.
For our lack of preparation before, and our poor thanksgiving after Holy Communion.
I wish to make reparation.
For our failure to cooperate with Thy daily Graces.
I wish to make reparation.
For our sins of pride and sensuality.
I wish to make reparation.
For our bad example and the sins we have caused in others.
I wish to make reparation.
For our tragic indifference to Thy Words of Holy Scripture and to the words of our Holy Father the Pope.
I wish to make reparation.
For the deplorable untruths of heresy, for all deserters and apostates.
I wish to make reparation.
For the pleasure-seeking and money-mad profaners of the Lord’s Day.
I wish to make reparation.
For the sacrilegious treatment of Thy Churches and Altars.
I wish to make reparation.
For the diabolical agents of Hell, ever seeking whom they may.
I wish to make reparation.
For the heartbreaking outrages committed by those who should be Thy greatest consolation.
I wish to make reparation.
