Reports have come in, especially today, that Sr. Agnes Sasagawa of Akita received the following message on October 6. This was on the opening day of the Amazon Synod (I believe this is not accidental), and the first message since the 1970s …
“Put on ashes and pray for a repentant rosary every day.”
I believe the first part, “Put on ashes,” is not meant that we are, literally, to walk around with ashes on. But, is meant to place ourselves in the same penitential mode we do as we begin Lent every year. In other words, a state of mortification and humility.
The second part, “pray for a repentant rosary every day,” is best translated as pray a rosary for repentance and reparation every day. Many of us prayed in this way shortly after the sex abuse crisis broke in the Church, in August of 2018.
While we still lack a solid verification of this message to Sr. Agnes, I believe it. Or, at least, I believe the need for a call for all of us to do the “Nineveh Thing.” Personally, I don’t think the world and the Church have ever been so disengaged from the will of God as we are today, especially when one considers the acceleration of sin by way of modern mass communication, especially the internet. People are being indoctrinated into abandoning God and His will at an alarming rate.
One could say that the “ultimate outrage” for God was blithely celebrating pagan idols in paraliturgies, right in the heart of the Church (Vatican) He founded. This was the “Golden Calf Moment” for our times.
I am planning to add very strict fasting to my daily rosary that will be prayed in reparation for all of the sins against the will of God in our times. Like Nineveh, I will do this for 40 days. I believe November 3rd, the day this message from Sr. Agnes of Akita went viral, is meant to be day 1 of 40 days … like Nineveh. Day 40, providentially, lands on The Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe (Dec. 12).
