MAGNIFICAT

Prayer to the Eternal Father

This prayer was composed by Blessed Melanie Calvat, Messenger of Our Lady of La Salette.
Eternal Father, behold Your Son Jesus Christ crucified for us! In His name and by His merits, have mercy on us poor sinners, because we repent and have recourse to Your infinite mercy. Let Yourself be touched, and have mercy on us for we are His heritage. O Lord, do not violate the covenant You have made: to answer the prayers Your children address to You. It is true that by our great iniquities we have offended Your justice, but You, my God, who are good by nature, let the greatness of Your infinite mercy shine forth. O Lord, if You would heed our iniquities, who could stand before You? Lord, we confess it: we are very guilty and it is our sins that have brought these scourges upon us. But You, Lord, who have willed that every day we call You Our Father, look now at the great affliction of Your children, and spare us from such great calamities. Spare us, my God, by the merits of Jesus Christ, by the love You have for Yourself; by the love of the Virgin Mary “our Mother”, forgive us! Remember, O Lord, that we are called Your people, have mercy on human folly. Send a ray of Your divine light to dispel the darkness of our intelligence, and may our amended souls change their ways and no longer steep the Heart of their God in bitterness! O Lord, only the hand of Your infinite mercy can save us from so many calamities. O Lord, we are reeling with inner and outer afflictions, have mercy on us! Turn away, O Lord, Your face from our sins and look upon Jesus Christ who has given You satisfaction by suffering and dying for us, for He is Your Son! Thus we will celebrate Your infinite mercy. Hasten, Lord, to answer us, otherwise our courage will be much lessened, for we have fallen into such a wretched state! Hasten, Lord, to show us Your mercy, for we have no hope but in You alone, who are our Father, our Creator, and who must preserve and save those who are Yours forever.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, and of the Mother of God. Amen.

Preparatory Prayer

O Jesus! We are going to walk with You on the road to Calvary which was so painful for You. Make us understand the greatness of Your sufferings, touch our hearts with tender compassion at the sight of Your torments, in order to increase in us the regret of our faults and the love we wish to have for You.
Deign to apply to all of us the infinite merits of Your Passion, and in memory of Your sorrows, show mercy to the souls in Purgatory, especially to those who are most abandoned.
O Divine Mary, who first taught us to make the Way of the Cross, obtain for us the grace to follow Jesus with the sentiments Your Heart was filled with as You accompanied Him on the road to Calvary. Grant that we may weep with You, and that we may love Your divine Son as You do. We ask this in the name of His adorable Heart. Amen.
