Title: Reparation for Carnival
Post by: Shin on February 19, 2012, 07:40:18 PM
Don't forget folks, now is the time to begin making reparation for Carnival. (

"At the time of the Carnival Mechtilde macerated her flesh till the blood flowed, offering this slight reparation to her Well-beloved for all the excesses and wickedness of the world. And our Lord, several times, said He loved to rest on Mechtilde's heart, where He could forget the pain caused Him by other hearts. . .

Mechtilde asked our Lord to teach her how she could offer satisfaction to Him for the many members of the Church who at this time (it was Quinquagesima Sunday) showered so many insults on Him. Our Lord replied:

"Say 350 times the anthem: Tibi laus, tibi gloria, tibi gratiarum actio, O beata Trinitas! -- 'To thee be praise, to thee glory, to thee thanksgiving, O blessed Trinity,' in reparation for all the indignities offered Me by those who are My members." "
