Greetings in Jesus and Mary....
Appearing to St. Margaret Mary, Jesus solemnly declares the unspeakable love of His Heart, and says, “My Divine Heart is so passionately in love with men, and with you in particular, that not being able to contain in itself any longer the flames of its ardent charity, it must pour them out through you…Behold this Heart which has loved men so much, which has spared nothing, going so far as to exhaust itself and consume itself in order to show them its Love…” Most of the complaints made by our Lord refer to the Holy Eucharist. “And instead of thanks, all I get from most men is ingratitude, scorn, irreverence, sacrilege and coldness that they show me in this sacrament of Love. What is still harder to endure is that this comes so often from hearts consecrated to me.”
“I thirst, I so ardently thirst to be loved by men in the most Blessed Sacrament, that this thirst devours me and yet I find no one who tries to slake my thirst by giving me some little return of love for Love.”
The saint says, “I felt much sorrow at the thought that this Bread of Love was eaten unworthily, particularly after He showed me the degrading treatment He received in a certain soul, where I beheld Him as though bound, gagged and trampled upon. He said to me in a sad voice, “See how sinners mistreat and despise me.”
“My daughter, I have come into the heart which I myself gave to you, so that by your fervor you might make up for the injuries I receive in so many tepid and cowardly hearts which dishonor me in the Blessed Sacrament.”
We also see in the words of Our Lord to St. Margaret Mary, His dismay for the lack of reverence in His Presence in the Blessed Sacrament. Jesus reproached St. Margaret Mary most severely for her lack of respect and attention when she was in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament, especially during the time assigned for the Office and for mental prayer. We too are all guilty of talking in Church. We show little reverence in His Presence in the Church….especially when we are there for sacraments such as First Holy Communion and weddings. When we show up for funerals, everyone is congregating with each other and not with Our Lord Who is in their midst.
When we receive Him in the Holy Eucharist, are our souls clean? Do we make an act of Contrition and frequent the Confessionals? Do we treat Him like a dead object after receiving Him in Holy Communion or do we converse with Him and give Him acts of Love and Reparation immediately following the act of receiving Him?
We have so much to make reparation for. There is so much going on in the world and in our country against the Sacred Heart of Jesus with the transgenders and human trafficking and blasphemies that we see all around us. This post today is a focus on ourselves. Are we not part of this sorrow toward the Heart of Jesus. Do we treat Him like King ALWAYS! Let us examine ourselves and make reparation and make it often. May we, like our Blessed Mother, offer ourselves and all that we do as an act of Reparation for the sins of the world!
Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy upon us!
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us!
