20130909 Lucia consoled the Immaculate Heart 路濟亞安慰聖母聖心

On May 13, 1917, Our Lady said to Lucia, “You will have much to suffer, but the grace of God will comfort you.” Within a few years of the apparitions, Lucia experienced the sadness of loneliness.

Death of loved ones
Francisco died on April 4, 1919. Lucia wrote, “I cannot describe how I miss him. This grief is a sad thorn pricking my heart for endless years.”
After the death of Francisco, Lucia’s father also died. He was a strong man, but within 20 hours double pneumonia suddenly ended his life.
Lucia shouted alone in her room, “My God, my God, I never imagined you had in store for me so much suffering! But I will suffer this for your love, in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Holy Father, and for the conversion of sinners.”
The health of Jacinta was worsening, and it was decided she would go to Lisbon for treatment. After the departure of Jacinta, Lucia went away and hid in a rocky cave to relieve her grief alone with God by shedding copious tears.
Jacinta died on Feb. 20, 1920. The Fatima church bells began to toll. Lucia knew that the tolling must be for the death of Jacinta. She ran away to a lonely place and flung herself upon the ground and wept as if her heart would break. It was only towards nightfall that she returned home, her eyes red from crying.
For a long time the sadness of Lucia seemed to grow greater and greater. When the cemetery was open, she would spend long hours sitting close to Francisco’s or her father’s tombstone.

First Saturdays
The bishop decided to send Lucia to a school at Oporto run by the Sisters of St. Dorothy. With a heavy and sorrowful heart, Lucia left Fatima on June 16, 1921.
In 1925, Lucia joined the order of St. Dorothy.
On Dec. 10, 1925, Our Lady appeared to Lucia with the Infant Jesus. Our Lady said, “Look, my daughter, at my heart, surrounded with thorns with which ungrateful men pierce me at every moment by their blasphemies and ingratitude.
“You at least try to console me, and say that I promise to assist at the hour of death, with the graces necessary for salvation, all those who, on the first Saturdays of five consecutive months, shall confess, receive Holy Communion, recite five decades of the rosary, and keep me company for 15 minutes while meditating on the 15 mysteries of the rosary, with the intention of making reparation to me.”
The infant Jesus told Lucia on Feb. 15, 1926, that people can go to confession on another day other than the first Saturday, provided they are in the state of grace when receiving Communion and have the intention of making reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
On the night between May 29 and 30, 1930, Our Lord revealed that the purpose of the five first Saturdays devotion is to make reparation for the five ways in which people offend and blaspheme against the Immaculate Heart of Mary:

— People blaspheme against the Immaculate Conception.
— People blaspheme against her Virginity.
— People blaspheme against her Divine Maternity, refusing to accept her as the Mother of all mankind.
— People try publicly to implant in children’s hearts indifference, contempt, and even hatred for this Immaculate Mother.
— People insult her sacred status directly.

Our Lord also told Lucia that the practice of this devotion would be equally accepted on the Sunday after the first Saturday, when, for just motive, priests allow it.

聖母在1917年5月13日向路濟亞說:「你將會受很多的苦,但天主的聖寵將會是你的慰藉。」聖母顯現後的若干年,路濟亞飽受孤獨之苦。

 

好友離世

 

小方濟死於1919年4月4日,路濟亞寫道:「我無法敘說我對他的懷念,就如荊棘刺入我的心房,經年不息。」

 

小方濟死後不久,,路濟亞的父親雖一向體健,卻突罹急性肺炎,二十小時內離世,路濟亞遭此突變,躲在房間向天主呼叫:「我主!我主!我從未想到祢要我承受那麼大的苦痛,但我甘願承擔,為了愛祢,為了賠補無玷聖心因罪惡受到的冒犯,為教宗和罪人的悔改。」

 

雅仙達健康日益惡化,被轉送到里斯本治療,路濟亞獨自躲到一個石穴,邊流淚,尋求天主的安慰。

 

1920年的2月20日,雅仙達逝世。花地瑪聖堂響起喪鐘,路濟亞曉得是為雅仙達致哀,她馬上走到一處偏僻的地方,投在地上大哭,儼如心窩碎裂,入夜才帶著哭紅了腫脹的眼睛回家。

 

路濟亞的傷痛,不退且增,常到父親和小方濟墳前,憑吊數個小時。

 

首瞻禮七

 

主教決定把路濟亞送到奧樸圖,入讀聖多樂德女修會辦的學校。路濟亞聽命,於1921年6月16日,帶著沉重的心情,離開花地瑪。

 

1925年,路濟亞加入聖多樂德女修會。同年12月10日,聖母帶同耶穌聖嬰顯現給她,對她說:「我的女兒,看!我的心被荊棘刺傷!每每罪人褻瀆負恩,我的心便被刺傷,你要嘗試給我安慰。你告訴世人,他們若為賠補我傷透的無玷聖心,一連五個首瞻禮七(每月首個星期六),在當天妥辦告解、善領聖體,誦唸五端玫瑰經,又用十五分鐘和我一起默想十五端玫瑰經,我答應在他們臨終時,給他們靈魂得救所需的聖寵。」

 

1926年2月15日,耶穌聖嬰讓路濟亞知道:如果教友不能在首瞻禮七當天辦告解,只要他們靈魂帶著寵愛和賠補聖母無玷聖心的意向仍可領補辱聖體;教友可在首瞻禮七八日前或八日後,甚致更長的日子,來辦告解。

 

1930年5月29日及30日的午夜,耶穌啟示路濟亞,五個首瞻禮七賠補傷透聖母無玷聖心的五種罪惡:

 

  1. 攻擊聖母的始胎無玷;
  2. 攻擊聖母的卒世童貞;
  3. 攻擊聖母為天主之母的道理,並拒絕接受她是世人的母親;
  4. 公然在兒童心中播下對無玷聖母的冷漠、輕視、和仇恨;
  5. 在聖母聖像前辱罵聖母。

 

耶穌又告訴路濟亞,假如有正當理由,神父有權准許教友在首瞻禮七的次天(星期日)做這賠補敬禮。
