PRAYER.

Verbum caro factum est, et habitavit in nobis.

The Word was made flesh, and dwelt amongst us.

Eternal Word, made man for love of us! Humbly prostrate at thy feet, we adore thee with our soul's deepest veneration; and to repair our ingratitude for the great boon of thy incarnation, we join our hearts with the hearts of all who love thee, and we offer to thee with them our most humble and loving thanksgiving. Filled with the thought of the exceeding great humility, goodness, and tenderness which we behold in thy divine heart, we pray thee to give us thy grace, that we may imitate these virtues, so dear to thee.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to the Father.

Crucifixus etiam pro nobis sub Pontio Pilato, passus et sepultus est.

He was crucified also for us, suffered under Pontius Pilate, and was buried.

Jesus, loving Saviour! humbly prostrate at thy feet, we adore thee with our soul's deepest veneration; and to give thee proof of our real sorrow for our want of feeling for all those outrages and woes which thy loving heart made thee suffer for our salvation, in thy sorrowful passion and most bitter death, we join our hearts with the hearts of all who love thee, to thank thee with our whole soul. We marvel at the boundless patience and the generosity of thy Sacred Heart; and we pray thee to fill our hearts with the spirit of Christian penance, that thereby we may courageously embrace suffering, and make thy cross our greatest comfort and our glory.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to the Father.

Panem de caelo praestitisti eis.
Omne delectamentum in se habentem.

Thou didst give them bread from heaven to eat.
In whose taste was every heavenly sweetness.

Jesus, full of love for us! humbly prostrate at thy feet, we adore thee with our soul's deepest veneration; and in reparation fur the outrages which thy Sacred Heart daily receives in the Most Holy Sacrament of the altar, we unite ourselves with the hearts of all who love thee, and give thee tenderest thanks. We love, too, in that Sacred Heart of thine, the incomprehensible fire of thy love for thy eternal Father; and we pray thee to inflame our hearts with burning charity toward thee and toward our neighbors.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to the Father.

Lastly, O most loving Jesus! we pray thee by the sweetness of thy Sacred Heart, convert sinners, console the suffering, help the dying, succor the souls in purgatory. Make our hearts one with thine in the bonds of true peace and charity, save us from a sudden and unprovided death, and grant us a death holy and peaceful. Amen.

Cor Jesu flagrans amore nostri, Inflamma cor nostrum amore tui.

Heart of Jesus burning with love for us, Set our hearts on fire with love of thee.

OREMUS.

Concede, quaesumus, omnipotens Deus, ut qui in sanctissimo dilecti Filii tui corde gloriantes, praecipua in nos charitatis ejus beneficia recolimus, eorum partier et actu delectemur et fructu. Per eumdem Christum, etc.

LET US PRAY.

Grant, we beseech thee, almighty God, that we who glory in the most Sacred Heart of thy well-beloved Son, and renew in our hearts the remembrance of the great benefits of his heavenly charity toward us, may rejoice in their operation and fruit within our souls. Through the same Christ our Lord, etc.

Divine Heart of my Jesus! I adore thee with all the powers of my soul; I consecrate them to thee forever, with my thoughts, my words, my works, and my whole self. I purpose to offer to thee, as far as I can, acts of adoration, love and glory, like unto those which thou offerest to thy eternal Father. Be thou, I beseech thee, the repairer of my transgressions, the protector of my life, my refuge and asylum in the hour of my death. By thy sighs, and by that sea of bitterness in which thou wast plunged for me throughout thy whole mortal life, grant me true contrition for my sins, contempt of earthly things, a burning desire of eternal glory, trust in thy boundless merits, and final perseverance in thy grace.

Heart of Jesus, all love! I offer thee these humble prayers for myself and for all who unite with me in spirit to adore thee; vouchsafe out of thy great goodness to hear and answer them, chiefly for that one among us who first shall end his mortal life. Sweet heart of Jesus! pour into his heart in his death-agony thine inward consolations; take him within thy sacred wounds; cleanse him from all stains in that furnace of love, that so thou mayest soon open to him the gates of thy eternal glory, there to intercede with thee for all those who tarry yet in this land of exile.

Holiest Heart of my most loving Jesus! For myself, a wretched sinner, and for all who unite with me in adoring thee, I purpose to renew and offer to thee these acts of adoration and these prayers, at every moment, and to the last instant of my life. I recommend to thee, my Jesus, holy Church, thy well-beloved spouse, and our true mother; the souls who are following the path of justice, poor sinners, the afflicted, the dying, all men on the whole face of the earth. Let not thy blood be shed in vain for them; and vouchsafe, lastly, to apply it to the relief of the souls in purgatory, and, above all, to those who in life were wont to adore thee devoutly.

Most loving Heart of Mary, which, amongst the hearts of all God's creatures, art at once the purest and the most inflamed with love for Jesus, and the most compassionate toward us, poor sinners! obtain for us from the Heart of Jesus, our Redeemer, all the graces which we ask of thee. Mother of mercies, one throb, a single beat of thy burning heart, offered by thee to the Heart of Jesus, has power to console us to the full. Grant us then this favor; and then the Heart of Jesus, through the filial love he had for thee, and will ever have, will not fail to hear and answer our request. Amen.


The Sovereign Pontiff, Pius VII., by a rescript, Feb. 12, 1808, granted:

An INDULGENCE of three hundred days, once a day, to all the faithful who shall say these prayers, with the Our Father, the Hail Mary, and the Glory be to the Father, each three times.

A PLENARY INDULGENCE, once a month, to all who shall have said them daily, as directed above, for a month, on any day, when, being truly penitent, after Confession and Communion, they shall pray to God for the wants of the Church.

These indulgences, plenary and partial, were confirmed forever by his Holiness, Pope Pius IX., in an audience, June 18, 1876.

THE LITTLE CHAPLET

Deus in adjutorium, etc.

Incline unto mine aid, etc.

I. Most loving Jesus! my heart leaps for joy in thinking on thy loving Sacred Heart, all tenderness and sweetness for sinful man; and, with trust unbounded, it never doubts thy ready welcome. Ah me! my sins! how many and how great! With Peter and Magdalen, in tears, I bewail and abhor them, because they are an offence to thee, my sole and chief good. Grant me, O grant me pardon for them all! O may I die, I beseech thee, by thy loving heart, may I die rather than offend thee, and may I live only to correspond to thy love!

Say the Our Father once, the Glory be to the Father five times: and then:

O sweetest Heart of Jesus! I implore that I may ever love thee more and more.

II. My Jesus! I bless thy most humble heart; and I give thanks to thee, who, in making it my model, not only dost urge me, with much pressing, to imitate it, but, at the cost of so many humiliations, dost thyself stoop to point me out the path, and smooth for me the way to follow thee. Foolish and ungrateful that I am, how have I wandered far away from thee! Mercy, my Jesus, mercy! Away, hateful pride and love of worldly honor! With lowly heart I wish to follow thee, my Jesus, through humiliations and the cross, and thus to gain peace and salvation. Only be thou at hand to strengthen me, and I will ever bless thy Sacred Heart.

Our Father once, Glory be to the Father five times.

O sweetest heart of Jesus, etc

III. My Jesus! I marvel at thy most patient heart, and I thank thee for all those wondrous examples of unwearied patience which thou didst leave me to guide me on my way. It grieves me that I have still to reproach myself with my extravagant delicacy, shrinking from the slightest pain. O pour, then, into my heart, dear Jesus, eager and enduring love of suffering and of the cross, of mortification and of penance, that, following thee to Calvary, I may with thee attain to glory, and to the joys of paradise!

Our Father once, Glory be to the Father five times.

O sweetest heart of Jesus, etc

IV. Dear Jesus! at the sight of thy most gentle heart, I shudder to see how unlike mine is to thine, since at a shadow, at a look, at a word of opposition, I fret and grieve. O, then, pardon my excesses, and give me grace that, in every contradiction, I may follow the example of thy unchangeable meekness, and so enjoy an everlasting holy peace.

Our Father once, Glory be to the Father five times.

O sweetest heart of Jesus, etc

V. Sing praise to Jesus for his most generous heart, the conqueror of death and hell; yet never wilt thou reach its due with all thy praise. More than ever am I confounded, looking upon my coward heart, which, through human respect, dreads even a passing word. Courage, my soul! it shall be so with thee no more. My Jesus, I pray thee for such strength that, fighting and conquering on earth, I may one day rejoice triumphantly with thee in heaven.

Our Father once, Glory be to the Father five times.

O sweetest heart of Jesus, etc

Let us turn to Mary, consecrating ourselves to her more and more, and, trusting in her maternal heart, let ua say to her:

By the precious gifts of thy sweetest heart, obtain for me, great Mother of my God, and my Mother Mary, a true and lasting devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, thy well-beloved Son, that, united in every thought and affection with that heart, I may fulfil all the duties of my state of life with ready heart, serving my Jesus ever more, but especially on this day.

V. Cor Jesu flagranas amore nostri.
R. Inflamma cor nostrum amore tui.
V. Heart of Jesus burning with love for us.
R. Inflame our hearts with love of thee.

OREMUS.

Illo nos igne, quaesumus, Domine, Spiritus Sanctus inflammet, quem Dominus noster Jesus Christus e penetralibus cordis sui misit in terram et voluit vehementur accendi. Qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitate ejusdem Spiritus Sancti Deus per omnia saecula saeculorum. Amen.

LET US PRAY.

Lord, we beseech thee, let thy Holy Spirit kindle in our hearts that fire of charity which our Lord Jesus Christ, thy Son, sent forth from his inmost heart upon this earth, and willed that it should burn with vehemence. Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the same Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever. Amen.
