Litany of reparation for sacrileges committed against the Blessed Sacrament

In today’s lack of Faith in the Holy Eucharist made manifest in most Catholic parishes in the world, this litany is a necessary remedy for the sacrileges and outrages committed against Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament:

Lord, have mercy on us;
Christ, 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.

                     (Response: We offer You our reparations, O Lord)

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

(Response: We sinners beseech You, hear us)

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

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, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, for ever and ever. Amen.

    Thank you Gertrude.
    We need to make reparation more than ever before with so many horrific stories of sacrileges committed against the Most Blessed Sacrament reaching our ears. Like this one:

    “An extreme expression of a growing anti-Catholic hostility here in Ireland”

    On Monday, confirmed that satanists broke into a Catholic parish in a Dublin suburb and desecrated the Blessed Sacrament, putting the priests and parishoners in such terrifying shock that they refused to be interviewed.

    Posting on his blog last Wednesday, Fr. John Hogan, a Secular Discalced Carmelite priest serving in the Diocese of Meath, Ireland, wrote the following under the headline “Shocking News”:

    “I was at a meeting in Dublin this evening when shocking news came through: the Blessed Sacrament has been desecrated in a suburban Dublin church. The Eucharist was reserved in an adoration chapel, the Host was taken out, torn apart, and stamped into the ground, while satanic slogans were written on the altar cloths. It is a terrible turn of events, one which causes all of us deep distress. Please pray for the priests and parishioners of this parish, and for those responsible for this heinous act: for their conversion. Sadly, it is an extreme expression of a growing anti-Catholic hostility here in Ireland.”

    For this reason Kathleen I posted the above, but there are many sacrileges, some of them even in our own Churches at Sunday Holy Mass.

    “there are many sacrileges, some of them even in our own Churches at Sunday Holy Mass”

    Yes I agree Gertrude, but not many are in any way comparable to or as abhorrent as the recent demonic attack perpetrated in Dublin. That was really something straight out from the depths of Hell!

    Only a couple of Sundays ago I saw the Sacred Host fall to the ground when an Eucharistic Minister (yes, unfortunately we have them here too) misplaced it on the outstretched hand of a communicant. What did he do? Did he clear the people away from spot where the Sacred Body of Christ had fallen, then cover the spot with a linen cloth, returning after Mass to purify the spot in the manner prescribed in “De defectibus”?
    Not in the post-VII Church! He quickly picked it up, nonchalantly placed it back on the hand of the communicant, and carried on handing out Sacred Hosts like biscuits… while people filing up behind trampled all over the spot where Our Lord’s Sacred Body had just fallen!
    Heartbreaking and shocking. Is it any wonder that so many have lost the sense of awe and reverence in receiving the Blessed Sacrament?


  4. GC says:

    Dear kathleen, one would only suppose that, if we’re saying “extraordinary”,
    the number of “Extraordinary” ministers of Holy Communion we see these days in any parish should be proportionate to the number of Masses offered in the “Extraordinary Form” in any parish. Obviously a logical proposition? “Extraordinary”, right?

    It seems, however, for NO “pastors” or “presiders” that “extraordinary” Holy Communion ministers means the usual obligatory tons and tons of them; but that “extraordinary” Form of the Mass means absolutely none of them even in your wildest imagining (the sort of expression they seem to use these days, or was that a few decades ago? – hard to say – oh well). Anyhow, this enigma is surely a modernist logic-defying miracle? Kumbayah, my lord…

    Or have I missed something important?

    Readers might like to read this somewhat bracing account of something that happened in Malaysia a few years ago. Some young Muslims went to a Mass offered weekly in the Malay/Indonesian language, apparently to try and see if there were any Muslims there that had secretly converted. They (the young Muslims) went to Communion, spat out (not halal?) and then took and published some photos of all their doings.

    [I should add that the Archbishop later took up the matter in the media and with government persons, resulting in a public apology from the young offenders.]

    Another horrific abuse against the Most Blessed Sacrament!

    Our Blessed Lord must have foreseen all the numerous sacrileges that men would commit against His Sacred Body when He gave Himself to us under the form of humble bread and wine. Yet He still wanted to nourish our souls with this Sacrament of Love. An amazing mystery that should inspire us to a much greater love of God in response, and a desire to make every effort humanly possible towards reverence in our celebrations of Holy Mass and in our presence before the Blessed Sacrament.


  7. GC says:

    Quite so, kathleen. Even without taking Communion, an hour or so spent before the Blessed Sacrament say two or three times a week is the most wonderful thing. I know because, now being a lot less busy than before, I get to go down to our parish church and do just that. Yes, it’s open the whole day and well into the night.

    Another thing you might see over here is some special person standing by watching while people take Communion to ensure that nobody is running off and misusing the sacred host.
