This is a very important post. As we all know, trouble in the Church keeps coming to the surface through media sources - not that this trouble wasn't there already - we just see its ugliness now. This is serious and getting even worse. Something big is about to happen - the ugly sore is overflowing with infection. This site is even more critical in light of this great need for Reparation. This site is about Reparation, Reparation and more Reparation. Who more than one who lives Carmelite spirituality is called to this. Their vocation is LOVE. If you are unfamiliar with this, please study the other headings of this site to learn more and to live it.
I congratulate my pastor for beginning yesterday to offer Fridays of Reparation from 6 PM to 12 midnight. This is so needed. (I apologize that I could not make the first night though - I will try to be there in the coming weeks. Thank you for offering this.)
I have taken the liberty to reprint part of a post from "Fr. Z's Blog". He too realizes the need for Reparation and calls for it. This was so good that I wanted to repeat some of it here. This was posted on his blog yesterday, 8/17/18:
"This is a primarily a supernatural battle that is being fought right now. The bloody trenches and killing alleys are directly through the ranks of the Church’s priests, and they directly involve matters intimately tied into the very center of the Church’s core, priesthood and sacraments like Penance.
No priest, no Eucharist, no Church.
This war involves human weakness, identity perversion, and also demonic possession. Hence, our response has to involve all of these dimensions.
Priests and bishops….
Please start saying Masses and having devotions for reparation and for deliverance from the assaults of the Enemy. We have tried and true spiritual weapons, if only we would dust them off, polish them up, and use them. Enough of this mealy-mouthed excuse making and temporizing. Enough of this rubbish about all the really important things that fill the clerical day, like committees and meetings. If you are going to have a meeting, meet about how we have to do reparation, who will be unlocking the church for Exposition and Rosaries and Novena and CONFESSIONS.
Priests and bishops, for the love of all that is Holy, use your mighty spiritual weapons given by Orders and Holy Church’s own authoritative, tried and true Tradition.
And, I’ll say it again and again and again… the Devil HATES LATIN. Let’s stop fooling around. Put the .22 long rifle away and start with the .50 cal already. The time for the MaDeuce of our sacred liturgical worship is NOW. Extraordinary Form, brothers. Stop fooling around. If you Latins out there don’t know and can’t use your whole Latin Rite, then.. who the hell are you, anyway? C’mon guys!"
This is so right on the money. We need the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass - the unbloody sacrifice of Jesus and we need the Rosary. We can add the Reparation Prayers taught at Fatima for these times. The Third Secret of Fatima was not revealed in 1960 for a reason! It was about what we are seeing now! We are ALL called to take up arms and fight the good fight! Let us win this battle for Christ - Let us reclaim what we have lost and set an example for our children and our children's children. No more snoozing - the time for battle is NOW.
Let us pray for and encourage all those priests willing to enter this battle with the Tridentine Mass, Rosary and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
Our Lady of Fatima - pray for us!
Good St. Joseph - pray for us!!
