Act of Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
This text was composed by Fr Ladislaus SS.CC. and approved by Pope St Pius X in 1908.
O sweet Jesus, Whose overflowing charity for men is requited by so much forgetfulness, negligence and contempt, behold us prostrate before Thy altar eager to repair by a special act of homage the cruel indifference and injuries, to which Thy loving Heart is everywhere subject.
Indulgence of 300 days each time it is said. On the feast of The Sacred Heart of Jesus, when solemnly read with the Litany of the Sacred Heart before the Blessed Sacrament, exposed one can gain 7 years indulgence and 7 quarantines, and a plenary indulgence subject to the usual conditions of Confession and Holy Communion, and prayer for the intentions of the Pope. This is the official text first composed by Father Ladislaus, SS.CC., and approved by His Holiness Pope Saint Pius X at the request of the Procurator General of the Congregation of the Sacred Hearts by Rescript of May 19, 1908. It was made obligatory to gain the indulgences of an Enthronement by a decision of the Sacred Penitentiary on March 1, 1918.
