9781537289274: Life of Mother Maria Teresa: Foundress of the Congregation of the Adoration of Reparation

From the PREFACE OF THE AUTHOR.
It is an old custom in the Church that, when any great crime has been committed which specially outrages the Divine Majesty, the faithful should be summoned before an Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, and solemn prayers addressed to the Eucharistic Mediator in reparation of the sacrilege.
This thought brought about, three hundred years ago, the institution of the 'Forty Hours'' Adoration. The three days which precede Lent are, for the world in general, the occasion of sin: for the children of God they should be consequently days of expiation, and the Holy Eucharist is proposed to them as the Divine method whereby alone their expiation can be made effective for the salvation of souls.
Later on, the same inspiration gave to the faithful a variety of devotions in honour of the Blessed Sacrament, each and all to be performed in a spirit of reparation and penance. Finally, at a later era, the idea of reparation, always closely united with the worship of the Eucharist, gave rise to the beautiful and touching devotion of Perpetual Adoration.
It was in 1848, between the two crises of February and June, that Paris, the main cause and the theatre of our misfortunes, gave birth to this spontaneous fruit of faith. Christian souls, in this hour of anguish, felt that the measure of God's justice was full. Many conceived the idea of opposing perpetual reparation to perpetual outrages; and to prolong, night and day, at the feet of the tabernacle, where the Blessed Sacrament would be exposed, holy watches of adoration and prayer. This pious wish could not fail to find an echo in the heart of Paris's chief pastor, Mgr. Sibour, who had witnessed at Rome the marvellous fruits of this devotion, which is an old one in the Eternal City, and had been the first to introduce it in France in his diocese of Digne. It was then, with a holy eagerness, that, having become Archbishop of Paris, he welcomed the spontaneous impulse of his flock, and transformed it into an association which enabled all the sanctuaries in the capital to share the honour of opening their gates in turn to these religious exercises. From Paris this association spread rapidly through the greater part of the dioceses of France; and the year which gave it birth marks certainly an important era in the history of the renewal of Catholic piety throughout the country....
