Walking the Camino - Acts of Reparation for the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary

We all do it, or have done it, through our sins we have offended the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  We have taken the name of Jesus in vain.  We have been indifferent to Him.  We have committed sins of pride and arrogance.  We have insulted our great God by thinking that we know better than He. We have heard others repeat blasphemies against Our Lord and His Mother and have said nothing.  We have returned His Unending Love with grievous hurts.  This is why we need to perform acts of reparation to both the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Acts of Reparation can be actions and/or prayers.  We can offer up a stomach ache in reparation for sins.  We can refuse to buy something we really want as reparation for sins.  We can fast anytime in reparation for sins committed against the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  We can bite our tongues when we want to return hate filled words for the hate filled words that were directed at us.  We can be silent in the face of gossip directed at us.  All of these things, and more, can be offered up in reparation for the sins of mankind that so deeply hurt the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
