Most glorious Virgin Mary,
Mother of God and our Mother,
turn thine eyes in pity upon us,
we are sore afflicted by the many evils that surround us in this life,
but especially do we feel our hearts break within us
upon hearing the dreadful insults and blasphemies uttered against thee,
O Virgin Immaculate.
O how these impious sayings offend the infinite Majesty of God
and of His only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ!
How they provoke His indignation
and give us cause to fear the terrible effects of His vengeance!
Would that the sacrifice of our lives
might avail to put an end to such outrages and blasphemies;
were it so, how gladly we should make it,
for we desire, O most holy Mother,
to love thee and to honor thee with all our hearts,
since this is the will of God.
And just because we love thee,
we will do all that is in our power to make thee honored and loved by all men.
In the meantime do thou,
our merciful Mother,
the supreme comforter of the afflicted,
accept this our act of reparation
which we offer thee for ourselves
and for all our families,
as well as for all who impiously blaspheme thee,
not knowing what they say.
Do thou obtain for them from Almighty God the grace of conversion,
and thus render more manifest and more glorious thy kindness,
thy power and thy great mercy.
May they join with us in proclaiming thee blessed among women,
the Immaculate Virgin and most compassionate Mother of God.
3 Hail Mary…
