O Jesus, it is for Your love, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins done against the Immaculate Heart of Mary

Fatima newsletter

WRAPPED IN THE LOVE OF GOD FOR THE WORLD

The theme of the shrine of Fatima for the pastoral year 2013/14 is taken from the recommendation of Our Lady to the children, advising them that they could always offer Prayers and sacrifices and say: ‘O Jesus, it is for Your love, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins done against the Immaculate Heart of Mary”. This is a wonderful Theme that implies an understanding of the great mystery of love that He has for us and our love in return for this desire so not to deny the One who give us everything so we lack nothing.

It is for your Love. Who meditates on the love of Jesus the Redeemer, Good Shepherd, Good Samaritan, Friend of sinners, who loves us without end, and of the Cross is ultimate proof of this love for us. We cannot help but want to give back as much love, praise, reparation, and suffering, meditating on the love that Jesus has given us so that we will blossom into a desire to love him more and better. Everything is of love for him: prayer, suffering, work, penance, for our entire life, every second. We are a “living sacrifice” offered with Christ through love, since it was the love of Him that saved us as we tried to love Him and to love the world with that same love, being contributors in redemption.

The conversion of sinners. The first request proposed by Our Lady is the conversion of sinners. The love of Jesus is offered to achieve the grace of the conversion of sinners. Everyone who is baptized has this responsibility: to be with Christ the Redeemer, collaborating in the conversion of sinners, offer everything so that the world may be saved and find the love of Jesus, His Word and His Truth. The sin that exists in the world needs reparation which is another name for love. Sinners are in need of conversion and only love, life offered in love can help them convert. Everyone is responsible for this development, working together for this challenge.

In reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary. This Lady is our Mother We must make reparation for the sins that offend and hurt. We have to console. There are lots of profanity, insults, profanity on the name of the Virgin Mary, many denials of Her virtue, of Her Immaculate Conception, Her virginity. There are many offenses against Her heart, against Her pictures, against Her love and Her mission. Reparation is trying to love this Lady and Her Heart for those who do not love Her and who offend Her. This Mother deserves all the love in the hearts of Her sons and daughters. We pray for this love for those who do not love and who do not pray to Her and keep Her company by making this obligation.

Father Dário P. Pedroso, SJ

Our Lady then asked the three children the following question: “Are you willing to offer yourselves to God and bear all the sufferings He wills to send you, as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and of supplication for the conversion of sinners?” To which I replied in the name of all three:”Yes, we are willing!”   At the time, this reply was given spontaneously and in ignorance, because I had not the remotest idea what it really meant nor what its full implications were. But I never regretted it; on the contrary I renew it every day, asking God for the grace and strength that I need to keep it faithfully until the end.

Our Lady of Fatima and the Eucharist

Our Lady of Fatima and the Eucharist 

By Thomas and Solvita- Elizabeth  McCormack

          The Call to Fatima   

Our Lady of Fatima and the Eucharist www.thecalltofatima.com

There is no doubt, Fatima certainly gives us light for these times on the Eucharist. The last time Ireland held the International Eucharistic Congress was in 1932 and less was known about Fatima and the Eucharist at that time. It was only in the 1940’s when the Servant of God Sister Lucia’s memoirs were first published, that more was known about the apparitions of the Angel to the three little children in the Spring, Summer and Autumn of 1916 and the Most Holy Trinity visitation to her in 1929.

 The Angel’s first words to them 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.”

 This prayer he made them repeat three times. He encouraged them to pray in that way saying that the Hearts of Jesus and Mary were attentive to their supplications.three shepherds of Fatima www.thecalltofatima.com

 While the children were playing at the well in Lucia’s parents garden 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.Angel of Peace in Fatima with Eucharist www.thecalltofatima.com

“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 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 so:

“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 tabernacle in our churches is surrounded today by emptiness and indifference, and where many live as if Jesus were not there. How many today when they enter the church for liturgical functions are not aware of His Divine and real presence in our midst? Often Jesus in the Eucharist is placed in some isolated corner whereas he should be placed in the centre of the church, and He should be placed at the centre of our ecclesial gatherings, because the church is his temple which has been built first for Him and then for us.

 In these times too how many communions are made, and how many sacrileges perpetrated! How great this wound which has surely contaminated the whole Church and paralyses it, halts it, and makes it impure and so very sick!

There must now be a clarion call for the full return of the whole Church Militant to Jesus present in the Eucharist. Because there alone is to be found the spring of living water which will purify its aridity and renew the desert to which it has been reduced; there alone is to be found the secret of life which will open up for it a second Pentecost of grace and light; there alone is to be found the fount of its renewed holiness: Jesus in the Eucharist!

 Lucia records for us in her memoirs “Fatima in Lucia’s own words” the vision that occurred on the 13th June 1929.

 “I had sought and obtained permission from my superiors and confessor to make a Holy Hour from eleven o’clock until midnight, every Thursday to Friday. Being alone one night, I knelt near the altar rails in the middle of the chapel and, prostrate, I prayed the prayers of the Angel. Feeling tired, I then stood up and continued to say the prayers with my arms in the form of a cross. The only light was that of the sanctuary lamp. Suddenly the whole chapel was illumined by a supernatural light, and above the altar appeared a cross of light, reaching to the ceiling. In a brighter light on the upper part of the cross, could be seen the face of a man and his body as far as the waist, upon his breast was a dove also of light and nailed to the cross was the body of another man. A little below the waist, I could see a chalice and a large host suspended in the air, on to which drops of blood were falling from the face of Jesus Crucified and from the wound in His side. These drops ran down on to the host and fell into the chalice. Beneath the right arm of the cross was Our Lady and in her hand was her Immaculate Heart. (It was Our Lady of Fatima, with her Immaculate Heart in her left hand, without sword or roses, but with a crown of thorns and flames). Under the left arm of the cross, large letters, as if of crystal clear water which ran down upon the altar, formed these words: ‘Graces, Mercy.’   

Vision of the Most Holy Trinity www.thecalltofatima.com

 This is surely a great mystery, which Sr Lucia ponders for many years in her cell in Coimbra, Portugal. In her last book “Calls from the message of Fatima,” she refers to the Most Holy Trinity as the ninth call of the Fatima message. “We are dealing with a mystery that only in Heaven will we be able to comprehend perfectly”.  Sr. Lucia uses the example of an orange to help us understand this mystery. “If we pick an orange for example, we remove the skin, we take out the seeds, which can be grown and we are left with the sections that we eat. Thus in a single orange we have three separate things which have three separate purposes. Then why should we be astonished to find three distinct Persons –Father, Son and Holy Spirit –in one God? If we choose to listen, all created things speak to us of God the Creator.”

Mary’s Immaculate Heart is for her Son, a living, beating, motherly tabernacle of love, of adoration, of thanksgiving and of unceasing reparation.

                                  Wherever the Son is, there too the Father and the Holy Spirit are always present. Just as, in the glory of heaven, Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father, in intimate union with the Holy Spirit, so also when, at the bidding of the priest, He becomes present in the Eucharist and is placed in the safekeeping of the tabernacle, surrounded by Mary’s motherly Heart; close to the Son there is always the real presence of the Father and the real presence of the Holy Spirit; there is always present the Divine and Most Holy Trinity.

 In Ireland The Most Holy Trinity is the supreme authority in the Irish Constitution. The Irish people honour The Trinity by obeying his laws; we revile The Trinity when we turn our back on Him. How? The Servant of God Sr Lucy explains how in her last book before she died “Calls from the message of Fatima”.

“It may possibly occur to someone to ask me: What have the Ten Commandments got to do with the Message of Fatima? I answer that they have a great deal to do with it: they are among the chief aims of the Message”. Our Lady ended the series of her apparition’s in Fatima with these words: “Do not offend the Lord our God anymore, because He is already so much offended”. There can be no doubt that what offends God the most is the breaking of his law”.  

The recent writings left behind by Sr Lucia is in effect a long letter to all those who have written to her concerning their doubts, questions, and difficulties , and their desires for greater fidelity in living up to what was asked for from Heaven in the Cova da Iria (Cove of Peace) in Fatima 1917. Sister Lucia of Fatima with her writings www.thecalltofatima.com

Sr Lucia reminds us again in the book ‘Calls’: “Please do not look upon this communication as something that comes from myself. Look upon it as the echo of the voice of God, and let us all willingly endeavour to follow faithfully the path that He has mapped out for us. Yes, because it was out of love that God sent us this pressing call from his mercy, in order to help us along the way of our salvation”.

In the preface of Sr Lucia’s book “Calls from the message of Fatima” she quotes Blessed John Paul II who said “If the Church accepted the message of Fatima, it is above all because it contains a truth and a summons which are in essence the truth and the summons of the Gospel itself”
