The Ideal of Reparation
by Raoul Plus
Shipping Weight: 1.00 pounds
Now back: the spiritual classic that
answers the key questions about reparation
1. Why reparation should be made 2. Who ought to make it 3. How should it be made?
"Points the way very effectively to those who wish to be
'pitiful of heart,' and to enroll themselves in the band
of 'devoted' souls." - America Magazine, 1922
The great Jesuit guide Raoul Plus wrote in an era of immense suffering...war...early death...and religious indifference that co-existed with true and healthy Catholicism. He called not for scientific advance but for spiritual maturity in response to the Divine Knock. Otherwise, he admonished, we might perish eternally.
"The world will be saved," he asserted, only "when we have a sufficient number of souls devoted to reparation and not before."
Fr. Plus exhorted, "these pages are provided for those Christians whose eyes are open and who have a heart-to them alone, and to no others. Those not resolved to be generous with God need read no further."
Astonishingly, the book flew off store and parish shelves, and went through hundreds of printings in various languages. Fr. Plus explained every facet of reparation for individual penitents, including:
"In what reparation consists"
Why Our Lord wants it—and makes it "a fundamental obligation"
Separate chapters about priestly, religious and lay reparation
How to grasp, and teach others, "the terrible seriousness of human life"
Dozen Scriptural passages that anchor reparation theology
Links to Holy Mass. Why you cannot attend one without seeing to the other
3 factors indispensable to developing the spirit of reparation
Compensating for the sins of others: how it can be
Panoply of leading Churchmen (and several women) teaching about reparation. Ample quotes
The average Catholic's perplexing view of his life, and of the spiritual life generally
How daily pitfalls can undermine the entire schema of a soul, and God's plan for it
"The best crosses"
What "divine justice" means, and does not mean
Difference between healthy and unhealthy "mortifications" we might take on
What "the elite of Christians grasp"
Where and why "we find Catholics who live to serve God and Mammon"
"In Case of Death," heartrending letter from father to children
Duty to pay attention to humble, lonely people in our midst
Importance of holy hours of devotion, in church or outside if necessary
Fr. Plus's book is rich with prayers...spiritual guidance briefly expressed...Biblical quotations on the topic and its centrality to perfecting one's spiritual life...and anecdotes illustrating his hundreds of points. The book, writes Msgr. Ignacio Barreiro of Human Life International in his new Foreword, "Underlines a basic teaching of the Church that is rarely mentioned today... the re-publishing of this valuable book fills a vacuum."
