Promises of Consolation to Christ

We promise for the future that
    We will console Thee, O Lord.
For the forgetfulness and ingratitude of men,
    We will console Thee, O Lord.
For the way Thou art neglected in Thy holy tabernacle, etc.
For the crimes of sinners,
For the sacrileges which profane Thy Sacrament of Love,
For the irreverence displayed in Thy presence,
For the coldness on the part of Thy children,
For their contempt of Thy loving invitations,
For the faithlessness of those who call themselves Thy friends,
For the bad example we have given,
For the abuse of Thy grace,
For our long delay in loving Thee,
For our past sins,
For our own unfaithfulness,
For our indifference in Thy service,
For keeping Thee waiting at the door of our hearts,
For Thy sighs and tears,
    We will console Thee, O Lord.
