Happy Easter! And let's pray that all "C & E" Catholics will return to the Sacraments, especially for this Divine Mercy Sunday

May this beautiful photo of Our Eucharistic Christ and the Vicar of Christ John Paul II inspire you and me to pray for all the "C & E" Catholics we know -- the Christmas and Easter Catholics.

May our hearts burn to tell the C & Es of all the graces and blessings they deprive themselves (and their children) of when they stay away from Mass and the Sacraments and only show up twice a year!

We can pray for them, and ask Jesus and Mary to help us help them -- to help them gently but clearly, and never self-righteously, just always in love.

We all need forgiveness. We all need Divine Love. May you and I find the way to help our C & Es find forgiveness and Divine Love through prayer, Mass and the Sacraments. Amen!

Q- This is not directly related to your post, but I wanted to get the word out that St. Monica's beautiful statue of the BVM that stands on the corner was decapitated to the shoulders sometime after midnight when the church closed after the Easter Vigil and before 6:00 AM Easter when one of the priests saw Msgr. holding the pieces of her head in his hands in the rectory. This was the statue donated to the parishioners in gratitude for permitting the filming of "Going My Way" at the church; she has been there almost 50 yrs. We are very upset, to say the least. GB

Dear Gigi,

Thank you very much for sending along this news, sad as it is.

You and I and everyone who reads our comments can each say the Angel's Prayer, one of the Fatima Prayers, in reparation:

O Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, I adore Thee profoundly.

I offer Thee the most precious Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifference by which He is offended.

By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg the conversion of poor sinners.

Dear Gigi,

I've done a post about your report. Thank you again for writing; now everyone can pray in reparation for the sacrilege.

Here is an extra prayer:

O Most Holy Virgin Mother, we listen with grief to the complaints of your Immaculate Heart surrounded with the thorns placed therein at every moment by the blasphemies and ingratitude of ungrateful humanity.

We are moved by the ardent desire of loving you as Our Mother and of promoting a true devotion to your Immaculate Heart.

We therefore kneel before you to manifest the sorrow we feel for the grievances that people cause you, and to atone by our prayers and sacrifices for the offenses with which they return return your love. Obtain for them and for us the pardon of so many sins. Hasten the conversion of sinners that they may love Jesus and cease to offend the Lord, already so much offended.

Turn your eyes of mercy toward us, that we may love God with all our heart on earth and enjoy Him forever in heaven. Amen.
