Dear Friends and benefactors,
In my previous 12 Newsletters, I spoke about the devotion of reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. In this letter I conclude the series of my letters with the need for a worldwide “Society of Reparation” functioning together with the traditional movement started by Archbishop Lefebvre.
The society of reparation to the immaculate heart of Mary
The Motto: “TOTUS TUUS” = I am all Thine
(Oh! Holy Mother, I am all Thine)
“Let the kingdom of Our Lady come, that the kingdom of Christ may come!”
The definition of “The Society of Reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary”
The Society of Reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary is an association for the Catholics. Its members (1) have consecrated themselves to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, according to the spirit of St. Louis de Montfort, in order to belong totally to Jesus Christ our Redeemer. (2) And have promised, as far as possible, to pray well and work for the spread of the Fatima message, and for the growth of the Devotion of Reparation to the Immaculate heart of Mary, so that the Church may obtain the true renewal and world peace as said in the Fatima message.
All Catholic Christians can join this Society, chiefly all those who have love and devotion towards Our Lady.
The obligations of its members:
1) They should have done the “Total Consecration” to the Immaculate heart of Mary. As a sign of this consecration they should wear the scapular of O.L. of Mount Carmel. They must recite daily the Fatima Pledge or the Act of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and recite at least the five decades of the Rosary.
2) They should know well the Message of Fatima and spread it everywhere.
3) They should observe the Devotion of Reparation as their favorite devotion and should propagate it among themselves and with others.
The divisions of age groups among its members:
1) “Marian children of Reparation”, up to the age of thirteen titled under the name of little Francisco and Jacintha respectively for boys and girls.
2) Marian “Sons” and “Daughters” of Reparation from 14th to 18th year old young men and young women respectively.
3) Marian “Society” of Reparation for men and women above the age of 18.
The duties of the members of the Marian Society of Reparation:
They should as their primary obligation attend the weekly meeting of the “Marian Crusade of reparation” (cenacle) regularly. Especially, Rosary, Penny Catechism, lessons on Fatima Message and of the Devotion of Reparation will be conducted in these meetings. They will talk about the activities of the apostolate of Reparation. They will share ideas about the projects of this apostolate.
They will form units of Rosary groups and multiply them. In these rosary groups non – members and even non – Catholics can be invited to join.
The official status of this Society:
According to Cannon law (298), Catholics, either priests or faithful, or priests and faithful together, may privately endeavor to propagate this Devotion of Reparation. Moreover, according to cannon law 299, those who have agreed among themselves privately to practice this devotion of reparation, and to propagate the Fatima Message, and to form and guide the Apostles of Reparation with the intention of fulfilling the requests of Our Lady of Fatima, can undertake this Apostolate.
However, when this Apostolate performs public liturgy or form a Religious Society, it should get the approval of the competent authorities (cannon law 301).
But, this Society, on a temporary basis (i.e. until it gets the proper approval of the competent authority), privately prepares the members of a future Religious Society which would faithfully practice the “Tradition” and the “Devotion of Reparation” of the Catholic Church.
The International Head Quarters of the Society of Reparation:
The International Head Quarters will be established where the International Director (or the Superior General) of this Society of Reparation resides. The International Director will select the other office bearers to run the administration of the entire Society of Reparation to the Immaculate Heart, throughout the world. The Director or the Superior general will establish and run the International Shrine of Reparation where he is.
The address of the International Head Quarters:
Our Lady of Mount Carmel, 1730 North Stillwell Rd, Boston KY, 40107 USA.
