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

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

Quote from Sister Lucia

“Putting up with any sacrifices that are asked of us in our day-to-day lives becomes a slow martyrdom which purifies us and raises us up to the level of the supernatural, through the encounter of our soul with God, in the atmosphere of the presence of the Most Holy Trinity within us. We have here an incomparable spiritual richness!”                                                                                                                (Sister Lucia of Jesus and of the Immaculate Heart)

 

Easter Joy

Jesus Christ is Risen, Alleluja!

      Easter Joy

Jesus came to earth,
To show us how to live,
How to put others first,
How to love and how to give.

Then He set about His work,
That God sent Him to do;
He took our punishment on Himself;
He made us clean and new.

He could have saved Himself,
Calling angels from above,
But He chose to pay our price for sin;
He paid it out of love.

 Our Lord died on Good Friday,
  But the cross did not destroy
  His resurrection on Easter morn
  That fills our hearts with joy.

  Now we know our earthly death,
  Like His, is just a rest.
  We’ll be forever with Him
  In heaven, where life is best.

 So we live our lives for Jesus,
 Think of Him in all we do.
 Thank you Saviour; Thank you Lord.
 Help us love like you!

                                                     (Joanna Fuchs)

Spiritual Exercises for Lent:Day 18

Prepare well for the Confession. Frequent Confession is like a shower for your soul, cleansing you completely, giving you healing and freedom from sin. Frequent Confession is like a petrol for your soul, it keeps you going through the rough roads of our lives. Sacrament of the Reconciliation is a superb grace. It is a big “SORRY” said to our Father in Heaven every time we do wrong, every time we fail or disappoint God, every time we fail to keep His Commandments.

A guide  for good confession:

  • If you need help especially if you have been away for some time simply ask the priest and he will help you by “walking” you through the steps to make a good confession.
  • Be truly sorry for your sins, ask God for the Holy Spirit to help you to examine your conscience, best way is to go through 10 Commandments and see if you kept them or not.
  • Remember that it is really Jesus who gives you forgiveness through priest
  • Always tell the priest your state of life: married or single, priest or religious, under religious vows or promises

R. Amen.
