"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Making Reparation for Blasphemy

This time against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The story calling for reparation may be found here - with a petition intended for Facebook to remove content which is insulting to the Blessed Virgin and the Incarnation of Our Lord.

I will not post the details of such blasphemy against Our Lady, nor do I post images that offend the dignity of the Mother of God or Our Lord.  

Today marks the anniversary of the second apparition of Our Lady at Fatima in 1917.  It was in this apparition Our Lady revealed her Immaculate Heart surrounded by thorns which seemed to pierce it, Lucia explained the apparition saying:  "We understood that it was the Immaculate Heart of Mary, insulted by the sins of humanity and which desires reparation."

As at every appearance Our Lady told the children: "Pray the rosary every day."

The Devotion of the Five First Saturdays is perhaps the chief form of reparation Heaven requested to make amends for such offenses, in addition to keeping the commandments, fidelity to the duty of one's state in life, and the daily recitation of the Rosary.  It seems to me the way of perfection is encompassed by ordering one's life accordingly.  Our Lady promised, "My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God."
