Reparation for insults to the Blessed Virgin Mary

O Blessed Virgin, Mother of God, look down in mercy from Heaven, where thou art enthroned as Queen, upon me, a miserable sinner, thine unworthy servant. Although I know full well my own unworthiness, yet in order to atone for the offenses that are done to thee by impious and blasphemous tongues, from the depths of my heart I praise and extol thee as the purest, the fairest, the holiest creature of all God’s handiwork. I bless thy Holy name, I praise thine exalted privilege of being truly Mother of God, ever Virgin, conceived without stain of sin, Co-Redemptrix of the human race. I bless the Eternal Father who chose thee in an especial way for His daughter; I bless the Word Incarnate who took upon Himself our nature in thy bosom and so made thee His Mother; I bless the Holy Spirit who took thee as His bride. All honor, praise and thanksgiving to the ever-blessed Trinity who predestined thee and loved thee so exceedingly from all eternity as to exalt thee above all creatures to the most sublime heights. O Virgin, holy and merciful, obtain for all who offend thee the grace of repentance, and graciously accept this poor act of homage from me thy servant, obtaining likewise for me from thy Divine Son the pardon and remission of all my sins. Amen.

Reparation for blasphemy against the Blessed Virgin Mary

Most glorious Virgin Mary, Mother of God and our Mother, turn thine eyes in pity upon us, miserable sinners; we are sore afflicted by the many evils that surround us in this life, but especially do we feel our hearts break within us upon hearing the dreadful insults and blasphemies uttered against thee, O Virgin Immaculate. O how these impious sayings offend the infinite Majesty of God and of His only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ! How they provoke His indignation and give us cause to fear the terrible effects of His vengeance! …We desire, O most Holy Mother, to love thee and to honor thee with all our hearts, since this is the Will of God. And just because we love thee, we will do all that is in our power to make thee honored and loved by all men. In the meantime do thou, our merciful Mother, the supreme comforter of the afflicted, accept this our act of reparation which we offer thee for ourselves and for all our families, as well as for all who impiously blaspheme thee, not knowing what they say. Do thou obtain for them from Almighty God the grace of conversion, and thus render more manifest and more glorious thy kindness, thy power and thy great mercy. May they join with us in proclaiming thee Blessed among women, the Immaculate Virgin and most compassionate Mother of God. (Racccolta, 1950)

Hail Mary three times.

Formal Excommunication IMHO

hqdefault

I see the formal excommunication of those who blatantly use the Catholic Faith as a political means to push the culture of death as an act of MERCY. Not only does it formally say, you are out of communion, but it is also a warning to those who follow the excommunicated rather than our Lord, BEFORE its to late to turn back to Him. It formally lets a soul know they are not in communion, they are not living the faith, and their actions DO NOT represent the Catholic Faith to the public also giving  them time to repent.

Our Lord has already drawn the line. The  famine of faith in our society, has blinded many not to see our own sinfulness through His eyes. Making us complacent in our actions. We excommunicate ourselves by the mortal sins we refuse to repent of. This, IMHO, is the time for our Bishops to stand and say ENOUGH, for the purpose of the salvation of souls, because we love.

I pray for the conversion of hearts. You never realize what you lost until its gone.

Have courage! Overcome the world.

Saint Thomas Becket, pray for us

Don’t Let The Devil Pull You In

Is what I am saying online, or offline, being said because I LOVE?

Is what I am doing online, or offline, being done because I LOVE?

Wonderful assessment by Bishop Robert Barron on the current situation today (Covington Catholic) with jumping to conclusions, that were never there.

Love one another, as I have loved you.

If you are tempted to be sucked into it all, cry out:

Lord? I forgive them. And I pray for them. I do love them, because You loved us first. Have mercy on us all. <– BEST way to begin the healing. Let Him in. Humility prevails.

Jesus said, “Fatherforgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”

Just And Unjust Laws – Martin Luther King, Jr.

50710679_2053397438070025_1270124771203350528_n

“There are two types of laws: just and unjust. I would be the first to advocate obeying just laws. One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. I would agree with St. Augustine that ‘an unjust law is no law at all.’

Now, what is the difference between the two? How does one determine whether a law is just or unjust? A just law is a man made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of St. Thomas Aquinas: An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law.”

Signed,

Martin Luther King, Jr.
