R.\ And I will glorify Thy Name forever.
V.\ Let us Pray.
R.\ Most merciful Jesus, who has said, “where two or three are gathered in My Name, I shall be in the midst of them,” come then, into the midst of us. Come into our hearts, and enkindle therein, the fire of Thy divine love. Come into our souls, and strengthen them, with the grace of Thy Holy Spirit. Come into our minds, and enlighten them, with the light of Thy wisdom.
O merciful Jesus, beloved Savior of mankind, we thank Thee for Thy infinite love, and we venerate Thy Sacred Name, in union with the fellow members of our Confraternity. Strengthened by Thy promise, “ask and you shall receive,” we petition Thee for the graces and favors we ask in this prayer, if they be for the good of our souls and Thy eternal glory.
Animated by Thy love, we offer this act of adoration in reparation for the sins committed against Thy Holy Name. May Thy Holy Name be our defense in temptation, our refuge in danger, our consolation in life, our joy for all eternity.
V.\ We ask this in Your Name, who live and reign with God the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever.
