-the violation of Sundays and Holy Days,
-the blasphemies spoken against You and Your saints,
-the insults hurled against Your Vicar and Your priests,
-the negligence and the sacrileges by which the very sacrament of Your love is profaned
-and fnally the public crimes of all nations who resist the rights and the teaching authority of the Church You have founded.

If only we could wash away such sins with our blood! And now, in reparation for these violations of Your divine honor, we offer the satisfaction that You once made on the cross to Your Father, which You renew daily on our altars. We offer it in union with the expiation of your Virgin Mother, all the saints and the faithful on earth. With the help of Your grace, we promise to make
