Prayer of Reparation for the Actions of Satanists

sacrament-of-holy-eucharistA group of Satanists has acquired the precious Eucharist and is planning to defile it in a public ceremony on September 21st. I’m not going to detail the specifics since they are easy enough to find if you so wish, and publicity is really the main point of these actions.

Desecration of the Eucharist is standard practice in Satanism, although when and how often it occurs we have no way of knowing. In this case, we do know that the Eucharist will be desecrated at a particular time and place, and we can do nothing to stop it. However, we can pray for reparation for the action and the conversion to Christ of those involved.

Acts and prayers of reparation are offered not merely for our own sins, but for the sins of the world. Observing a Holy Hour in adoration is the finest way offering reparation, during which we also may pray for those who persecute the Church.

You can find various traditional prayers of reparation on the internet. Here is one I wrote:

Lord, our hearts melt within us at the thought of our own sins and the sins of our world. We are, as the Apostle says, “by nature children of wrath,” and even those who believe in you wander far from your path at times. Please, forgive us our many sins, and give us the faith to forgive the sins of others.  Just as man wounded your body in the passion, so do we continue to wound your body in the community of believers, in the face of our neighbor, and in the Holy Eucharist. May direct contact with this medicine of mankind work some miracle on the stony hearts of those who would defile it, and convert them to the Love that never dies. Please forgive those who, through acts of desecration, sacrilege, blasphemy,  and heresy continue to wound you. You turned the wounds of your Son into the means of our salvation, and the sorrow of the cross into our eternal joy. May you accept this act of reparation, forgive those who seek to hurt you still, and convert their hatred to faith in the One who saves. We ask all these things in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Begin and end with the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel:

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.  May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world  seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
