(In Reparation for Blasphemy)
This devotion can be prayed on the 59 beads Marian Rosary
On the crucifix pray
Mary, my Immaculate Mother,
I desire to offer thee reparation for the offenses
which thy Immaculate Heart
receives from the horrible blasphemies
which are uttered against thee.
I offer thee these praises
to console thee for so many ungrateful children
who do not love thee,
and to console the Heart of thy Divine Son
Who is so deeply offended by the insults offered to thee.
Receive, my Purest Mother,
this little act of homage.
Make me love thee more each day
and look with pity on those blasphemers
that they may not delay to cast themselves
into thy maternal arms. Amen.
(skip the first four beads - one Our Father bead and three Hail Mary bead)
On the Our Father beads pray
Grant that I may praise Thee, O Holy Virgin!
Give me strength against Thy enemies!
On the 10 Hail Mary beads pray each of the 10 following praises once
1. Blessed be the Great Mother of God, Mary Most Holy!
2. Blessed be her Holy and Immaculate Conception!
3. Blessed be her Glorious Assumption!
4. Blessed be the Name of Mary, Virgin and Mother!
5. Blessed be her Immaculate Heart!
6. Blessed be her Virginal Purity!
7. Blessed be her Divine Maternity!
8. Blessed be her Universal Mediation!
9. Blessed be her Sorrows and her Tears!
10. Blessed be the graces with which the Lord crowned her Queen of Heaven and Earth!
At the end of each decade pray
Glory be to Mary, Daughter of the Father!
Glory be to Mary, Mother of the Son!
Glory be to Mary, Spouse of the Holy Spirit!
I love Thee for those who do not love Thee;
I praise Thee for those who blaspheme Thee;
I surrender myself to Thee
for those who will not recognize Thee as their Mother.
(Repeat the above concluding prayer five times)
