  • Fatima Morning Offering of Reparation     ˄ ˅

    Fatima Morning Offering
    of Reparation:

    Source: Jesus to Lúcia of Fatima in 1945:
    "Through this prayer, every act you do becomes a sacrifice"

    O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass being offered throughout the world, I offer you all my prayers, works, joys and sufferings of this day in reparation for the offences committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for my sins and the sins of the whole world.

    Amen   Cross-Icon

    Why should you say this specific morning prayer?

    Most Catholics don't like or understand the idea of "suffering/sacrifice." When we think of suffering, we immediately think of the painful suffering of saints we have read about.

    God doesn't enjoy seeing us suffer unless we elect to suffer/sacrifice in His name. He will allow some suffering to draw us closer to Him.

    When we choose to sacrifice, God blesses the "self-sacrifice choice" of our free-will. Sacrificing even on a small scale is very pleasing to God. Such as, kneeling or fasting. Fasting doesn't need to be long hours, just skipping that second helping (in the name of God) is considered a sacrifice.

    Our daily trials are sacrifices also, because we choose to live each day in a broken world. We know we are going to have ups and downs, but we get up each day and meet them head on.

    When we hit that snag in our day, we can either cuss or we can manage through it with God's graces. But you know the trick, you have to offer it up (each time) to God for the graces. Not any more.

    God wants us to be aware of Him each day from morning to end. He is willing to make a deal for that morning start. His deal is AUTOMATIC graces for every trial of the day by starting off with this prayer. So first thing each day or while the coffee is brewing, take the 20 seconds to say this prayer.

    The Value of Morning Offering of Reparation

    The jewels of the Church are those who suffer; those who carry their crosses and endure their penances while being united to God. Father Pio, the famed stigmatist, once said: "If you knew the value of suffering you would never give it up." Whether an individual believes in God or not, a certain amount of suffering must enter every life. A person who offers his trials to God finds peace and purpose, even in his trials. One who does not unite himself to God becomes bitter and despairs.

    Graces to endure our daily trials, can be obtained so easily by reciting this daily prayer.

    In 1945 Jesus told Lucia, the seer of Fatima, 

    "The sacrifice and penance I now seek and require is the fulfillment of your state in life and the observance of my laws." Whatever your state in life may be you can sanctify all your daily actions if upon arising you recite sincerely the morning offering prayer. Through the "Morning Offering of Reparation" every act you do becomes a sacrifice. The word "sacrifice" means to make "holy." 

    Once you have made your morning offering you make "holy" every act you do throughout the day.

    Whatever trial God permits to pass your way during the day becomes a penance - whether it be work, bad weather, rebellious children, sickness in the family, tight economic conditions or misunderstandings by relatives or friends. All these sacrifices and penances obtain graces the Blessed Virgin needs for the conversion of sinners.

    At Fatima, when showing the children, a vision of hell, Our Lady told them: "See my children, the souls of poor sinners because there was no one to pray for them or make sacrifices for them."

    If you do not say your morning offering prayer, you have wasted the day as far as many graces are concerned and have lost opportunities to help in the salvation of souls.

    One day a person visiting the shrine of Fatima, Portugal, was present during the blessing of the sick and afflicted. She saw before her people in wheel chairs, on crutches, lying on stretchers and cots. Moved with compassion for these afflicted, she closed her eyes to pray for them. While praying she envisioned souls dressed in white leaving purgatory and going to heaven. This incident clearly shows how the suffering of all those afflicted was the instrument God was using to free souls in purgatory.

    Be sure to recite the "Morning Offering of Reparation" every day and try to renew it often throughout the day. You can place this prayer by your bedside, on your mirror or on your kitchen wall as a reminder to say it. By being faithful to your morning offering, God will send graces upon you, your family, the souls in purgatory and throughout His Church.

    ( For the Greater Glory of God )

    St Joseph with Jesus
    Oh, St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the Throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires.

    Oh, St. Joseph, do assist me (us) by your powerful intercession and obtain for me (us) from your Divine Son all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, Our Lord; so that, having engaged here below your Heavenly power, I (we) may offer my (our) thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of fathers.

    Oh, St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms. I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press Him in my name and kiss His fine head for me, and ask Him to return the Kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, patron of departing souls, pray for us. Amen.

    Say for nine consecutive mornings for anything you may desire that is of God's will. It has seldom been known to fail.

    This prayer was found in the fiftieth year of Our Lord Jesus Christ. In 1505, it was sent by the Pope to Emperor Charles when he was going into battle.

    Who ever reads this prayer or hears it or carries it, will never die a sudden death, nor be drowned, nor will poison take effect on them. They will not fall into the hands of the enemy nor be burned in any fire, nor will they be defeated in battle.

    Make this prayer known everywhere.
