Litany in Reparation to Our Lord in the Eucharist

litany in reparation to our Lord in the Eucharist

Because of the way our Eucharistic Lord has been injured by the countless blasphemies and disbelief in the Real Presence, one way we can make reparation is by praying the Litany in Reparation to our Lord in the Eucharist.

If we are ever perplexed as to why some Catholics show no consideration for the Eucharist, even hiding him away in a side room in some parishes, it is because they do not believe what the Council of Trent taught regarding the Real Presence.

“In the most blessed sacrament of the Eucharist “the body and blood, together with the soul and divinity, of our Lord Jesus Christ and, therefore, the whole Christ is truly, really, and substantially contained.”

(Council of Trent (1551)

One way our Lord is offended is when people receive the Eucharist unworthily. How much better it is to experience embarrassment at not being able to receive, than to receive unworthily. This should inspire us to remain in a state of grace. When we receive unworthily, we not only put our souls at risk, we also offend our Lord, whom we claim to love.

Let us resolve to make reparation for all the insults made to our Lord. Please note that the Litany in Reparation to our Lord in the Eucharist is for private recitation only.

Hear us, O Lord.

For the outrageous contempt of this most wonderful Sacrament,
We offer Thee our reparation.
For Thine extreme humiliation in Thine admirable Sacrament,
We offer Thee our reparation.

For the irreverences of wicked Christians,
For the profanation of Thy sanctuaries,

the reverence due to this adorable Mystery,
we beseech Thee, hear us.
That it may please Thee to manifest the Sacrament 
of Thy Love to heretics,
we beseech Thee, hear us.
That it may please Thee to grant us the grace to atone for their hatred by our burning love for Thee, etc.

That it may please Thee to make our adoration acceptable to Thee,

Pure Host, hear our prayer.
Holy Host, hear our prayer.
Immaculate Host, hear our prayer.

Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world,
Spare us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world,
Graciously hear us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world,
Have mercy on us.

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

V. See, O Lord, our affliction,
R. And give glory to Thy Holy Name.

Let us Pray.

O Lord Jesus Christ, Who dost deign to remain with us in
Thy wonderful Sacrament to the end of the world, in order to
give to Thy Father, by the memory of Thy Passion, eternal glory,
 and to give to us the Bread of life everlasting: Grant
us the grace to mourn, with a heart full of sorrow, over the
injuries which Thou hast received in this adorable Mystery,
and over the many sacrileges which are committed by the impious,
by heretics and by bad Catholics.

Inflame us with an ardent zeal to repair all these insults to which,
in Thine infinite mercy, Thou hast preferred to expose Thyself
rather than deprive us of Thy Presence on our altars, Who with God
the Father and the Holy Spirit livest and reignest one God,
world without end.

Amen.
