Tomorrow will be Trinity Sunday. It is important to know that the prayers taught to the children address the Blessed Trinity. These Reparation Prayers are needed today more than ever.
When the Angel came to the children of Fatima, the Angel’s first words to the three children in Spring 1916 were: “Do not be afraid! I am the Angel of Peace. Pray with me.” He then taught them the following prayer: “My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You! I ask pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love you.”
While the children were playing at the well in Lucia’s parents garden during the summer of 1916, the Angel came a second time. “What are you doing?” he asked. “Pray, pray very much! The most holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary have designs of mercy on you. Offer prayers and sacrifices constantly to the Most High.” Lucia then asked how they were to make sacrifices.
“Make of everything you can a sacrifice, and offer it to God as an act of reparation for the sins by which he is offended, and in supplication for the conversion of sinners. You will thus draw down peace upon your country. I am its Angel Guardian, the Angel of Portugal. Above all, accept and bear with submission, the suffering which the Lord will send you.”
On the third visit of the Angel in Autumn 1916, he was holding a chalice in his left hand, with the Host suspended above it, from which some drops of blood fell into the chalice. Leaving the Chalice suspended in the air, the Angel knelt down beside the children and made them repeat three times the following prayer:
“Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly, and I offer You the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference with which He Himself is offended. And, through the infinite merits of His most Sacred Heart, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of you the conversion of poor sinners.”
Then, rising, he took the Chalice and the Host in his hands. He gave the Sacred Host to Lucia, and shared the Blood from the chalice between Jacinta and Francisco, saying as he did “Take and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus, horribly outraged by ungrateful men! Make reparation for their crimes and console your God.”
That prayer to the Most Holy Trinity is certainly very beautiful and powerful. We could say now that it would seem to have been taught for our times, when the tabernacles in many churches are surrounded today by emptiness and indifference and many carry on as if Jesus were not present with all the chatter taking place in front of the tabernacle. The Angel teaches us through the three children to be attentive to the Real Presence and to make reparation for those who do not, so that we too can live a life of faith, hope and love.
We observe many communions received with no regard for confession and one wonders how many sacrileges are perpetrated by receiving Jesus with mortal sin on one's soul! How great this wound which has surely contaminated the whole Church and paralyses it, halts it, and makes it impure and so very sick!
Over one hundred years since the Angel's visit to Fatima, humanity in 2018 is mounting a greater denial and rebellion against God. The tolerance of Catholics to disobey the Ten Commandments and choosing to sin is driving many Catholics away from the church including some religious. The Sacrament of Confession and the neglect of family prayer (The family Rosary) are replaced for the quest for pleasures. Social Media has now replaced the Family Rosary for most Catholic countries. The pride of the social media, influenced and run by the enemy, gloat about their successful relentless campaign to create the environment for mortal sin to flourish under the so called ‘new freedoms and rights’ such as divorce, abortion and homosexuality, made into law around the world. These are the tenets of communism.
The infiltration of the Church spoken of in the Talks section of this website for this weekend speaks of who this enemy is and how Our Lady warned us. Below are its tenets.
May we pray our Rosary and pray these prayers of Reparation and ask Our Lady to protect our Faith, Our Families, Our Country. May She crush the head of the serpent and may Her Immaculate Heart Reign and Triumph so that Jesus may Reign in the hearts of all of mankind.
