It's June.

That means it's the month of the Sacred Heart. Which is good given that I was reading Jesuit stuff anyway.

Reparation is the now completely neglected point. What sacrifices do you make for Christ? Or are you one of the folks He described to St. Margaret Mary?

Behold the Heart which has so loved men that it has spared nothing, even to exhausting and consuming Itself, in order to testify Its love; and in return, I receive from the greater part only ingratitude, by their irreverence and sacrilege, and by the coldness and contempt they have for Me in this Sacrament of Love.

Notice who He's talking about. The greater part. That was back in the late 1600s. How do you think the situation compares to nowadays? Would there more or less need of reparation to our Blessed Lord?

It's a scary thing, yet it's also a testament to God's mercy that He is still putting up with us after our having built a world so thoroughly saturated by sin.
