Dear Friends and Benefactors,
In the Newsletter # 11, I spoke to you how to form MARIAN CRUSADE OF REPARATION (Model groups of Prayer, Sacrifice and Reparation) and how to enroll membership in it. I thank those who have enrolled their names and I wish to remind those who have not yet enrolled.
In this newsletter I would like to speak about the essence of the devotion of reparation.
The essence of the devotion of reparation consists in spreading the love and knowledge of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and in gaining souls for Mary and through Her for Jesus. Our Lady of Fatima says: “Jesus wishes to make use of you (The Apostles of Reparation) to make Me known and loved.” (June 13, 1917)
This intimate knowledge and love could be acquired only through an ardent desire to be devoted to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. That is why “Jesus wishes to establish in the world devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.” This is the great project of Jesus for us, the Apostles of Reparation.
But since in these days, the Blessed Virgin Mary has been increasingly put aside, humiliated and dishonored before Her Children, Jesus wishes an extraordinary devotion of reparation to be given to His Divine Mother.
On July 13, 1917 Our Lady said: “I will come to ask for the communion of reparation on First Saturdays.” And on December 10, 1925, at Pontevedra, Our Lady appeared with the Child Jesus to Sr. Lucia. Jesus spoke first: “Have pity on the heart of your Most Holy Mother. It is pierced with thorns which ungrateful men place therein at every moment, and there is no one to remove them by an act of REPARATION.”
Then Our Lady held out Her heart encircled with thorns and said: “See, my daughter, my heart surrounded by thorns with which ungrateful men are wounding it at every moment by their blasphemies and ingratitude. You at least console Me, and announce that I promise to assist at the hour of death with all the graces necessary for salvation, to whom so ever practices the First Saturday devotion with the intention of MAKING REPARATION TO ME.”
Thus, the essence of this apostolate consists in the devotion of REPARATION TO THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY.
I would like to inform you that two members of our Marian Crusade of Reparation are going to make their Total Consecration to Mary on Sept. 12, after 33 days preparation (retreat). Two more are going to make the same consecration on Dec. 8. Please pray for them. Proper guidance will be given to those others who would make this total Consecration in due time.
“We must all obey Our Blessed Lady’s requests at Fatima. The time of doubting is long past. It is now time for action.” (Pope Pius XII, 1950)
My only joy and reward are to make SAINTS of you. Let us offer ourselves as slaves to Jesus through his blessed mother.
