I found this quote today:

Just a thought.  We hear so much negative every day (which makes us all cranky) that a heartfelt thank you from time to time means a lot.Fr. Cranky, Fr. Cranky, Jan 2009

The Call of the Holy Angels to Expiation

Vol. XI, August, 2005

The Angel of Fatima, in the course of his second apparition, implored the children: “Offer constantly to the Almighty prayers and sacrifices,” and “Offer a sacrifice to atone for sins that offended Him.”

Still more expressly at the third apparition, he asked them “Jesus Christ [is] terribly outraged by the ingratitude of men. Offer reparation for their sins and console your God.”

May this message not fail its purpose with us: the angels are ever looking for those who will accompany Jesus as they do, especially at times when men normally would flee, in hours of suffering, when He appears “as One from whom men hide their faces” (Is 53:3).

Pope John Paul II’s exhortation similarly surprises us, when he exhorts us: “Let us take the time to kneel before Jesus present in the Eucharist, in order to make reparation by our faith and love for the acts of carelessness and neglect, and even the insults which our Savior must endure in many parts of the world” (Mane nobiscum Domine, 18b).

Inspired by St. Peter Julian Eymard (cf. Eymard Library, vol 3: Eucharistic Retreat, 315-336), and based on the faith of the real and continuous presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, let us hear in this month the call of the holy angels to “reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences by which He (Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world) is offended”.

To this end, we want to reflect upon the life of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament and ask pardon for all our negligence and for that of each one of our confreres (brothers) in the holy priesthood.

Vol. VI, September 2000 With Obedience and Prayer Vanquish the Devil

Posted on January 5, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

“This brings us to another beautiful part of the success over the devil: The right intention, proved by obedience, becomes prayer! It opens the soul before the Almighty God, and even invites God to enter. That is why obedience is like a protective wall around the soul which no devil can break through. By obedience the soul is united with God, the exact opposite to sin and to the destructive temptation of the devil. In obedience, man believes in the wisdom of God, and has hope in his goodness, such that he surrenders himself to Him in love and, consequently, finds ‘footing’ and steadiness and peaceful rest in God. God loves man always. However, he can only act in favor of man, when man is in favor of God! “Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you!” (James 4:8). And the Lord himself assured: “Everyone that shall confess me before men, I will also confess him before my Father who is in heaven” (Mt 10:32). “
