VIOLATION OF THE SEAL OF CONFESSION

 

Can. 2369

 

§ 1. Cofessarium, qui sigillum sacramentale directe
violare praesumpserit, manet excommunicatio spe-
cialissimo modo Sedi Apostolicae reservata; qui vero
indirecte tantum, obnoxius est poenis, de quibus in
can. 2368, § 1.

 

§ 2. Quicunquc praescriptum can. 889, § 2 ternere
violaverit, pro reatus gravitate plectatur salutari
poena, quae potest esse etiam excommunicatio.

 

 

 

There are two ways of breaking the seal of confession,
as described in the fourth volume of this Commentary.
Violation is direct if, together with the matter confessed,
the name of the penitent is revealed, either ex-
plicitly or by a description which reveals his identity.
It is indirect if, from the confessor's way of acting or
speaking there is danger that the sin of the penitent and
his identity become known, thus rendering confession
hateful.

 

Can. 889, § 2, obliges also interpreters and all others 
who may in any way have acquired knowledge of con- 
fession, to keep the seal.

 

I. A confessor, says our canon (§ 1), who dares to 
break the seal of confession directly, remains under ex- 
communication reserved modo specialissimo to the Apos- 
tolic See.

 

a) The term confessor implies a priest... .

all graces through the Immaculate
Heart of Mary." -Jacinta Marto

 

THE MESSAGE OF DEVOTION TO THE

IMMACULATE HEART OR MARY

 

On the occasion of the third apparition —
July 13, 1917 — an occasion that may well
go down in history as an epoch-making event,
Our Lady said to Lucy:
“OUR LORD WISHES THAT DEVOTION
TO MY IMMACULATE HEART BE ESTAB-
LISHED IN THE WORLD.”

 

A reading of the account of the third appari-
tion, completed by that of the secret of Fa-
tima, will quickly show that the devotion to
the Immaculate Heart of Mary holds an im-
portant place in the Message of Fatima. Re-
call, in the third apparition, the occasion of
the terrifying vision of hell, that Our Lady
said: “YOU HAVE JUST SEEN HELL
WHERE POOR SINNERS GO. TO SAVE
SOULS OUR LORD WISHES TO ESTAB-
LISH IN THE WORLD DEVOTION TO MY
IMMACULATE HEART. IF PEOPLE DO
WHAT I TELL YOU, MANY SOULS WILL
BE SAVED AND THERE WILL BE PEACE.”

 

She added: “ . . . I SHALL ASK FOR THE
CONSECRATION OF RUSSIA TO MY IM-
MACULATE HEART, AS WELL AS A COM-
MUNION OF REPARATION ON THE FIRST
SATURDAY OF THE MONTH. IF MY RE-
QUESTS ARE HEEDED RUSSIA WILL
BE CONVERTED AND THERE WILL BE
PEACE, OTHERWISE... MANY GOOD
PEOPLE WILL BECOME MARTYRS; THE
HOLY FATHER WILL HAVE MUCH TO
SUFFER; SEVERAL NATIONS WILL BE
WIPED OUT.” [...]

 

 

We must participate in this devotion by
consecrating ourselves to the Immaculate
Heart of Mary. Consecration means one’s
desire to honor Mary, to belong to her and to
obey her. A simple ejaculation would suffice:
"Immaculate Heart of Mary, I consecrate my-
self to thee.”

 

The practice of the devotion of the FIRST
SATURDAYS consists of the following exer-
cises, performed with the intention of con-
soling the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and
making reparation to it for the outrages and
blasphemies of which it is the object on the
part of ungrateful mankind: 1. COMMUNION
OF REPARATION on the FIRST SATUR-
DAY OF THE MONTH. 2. THE ROSARY.
3. REPARATION PRAYERS: SOME SAC-
RIFICES FOR THE INTENTION.

 

Associated with the devotion to the Immac-
ulate Heart of Mary is the devotion of the
FIVE FIRST SATURDAYS. This beautiful
and efficacious devotion is outlined in detail
on another *page.

 

*See: "How to Precisely fulfill the Five First Saturdays

Devotion as Requested by Our Ladyof Fatima". -ED

 

 

Our Lady said to Lucy:"The last means that God will

give to the world for its salvation are the Holy Rosary
and My Immaculate Heart."

 

Thus, we exhort you to spend your time 

in practicing and spreading this beautiful de-
votion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and
Mary’s other Fatima requests, because the
peace and salvation of the world depend upon
it. Mary’s Immaculate Heart will triumph
only, as Sister Lucy has told us “WHEN A
SUFFICIENT NUMBER OF PEOPLE IS
FULFILLING OUR LADY’S REQUESTS.”
One of these requests is the establishment of
the DEVOTION TO THE IMMACULATE
HEART OF MARY.

"... it is a fact that St. Augustine's two cities, the City of Good and The City of Evil are separate, each seeking to rule in the world. The City of Evil ruled by Satan is named Judeo-Masonry; insistently it proclaims to all, Catholics, Protestants, Orthodox, to Freethinkers, Communists and Pagans, in fact to the whole world that:
'To fight against papacy is a social necessity and constitutes the constant duty of Freemasonry.' (Masonic International Congress held in Brussels 1904, page 132 of the report. ) The City of Good and of Jesus Christ is the Catholic Church; for over 19 centuries, according to the teaching of the Roman Pontiff, She repeats to the world Her immutable creed: I believe in the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church." -Msgr. Jouin, Dec 8, 1930 A.D.

A PRAYER TO ST. PATRICK.

 

 

O glorious St. Patrick, Apostle of Ireland ! I praise,
bless, and glorify God for thy sanctity, thy zeal, thy
charity, thy labours, and the success of thy labours.
I thank thee, O great St. Patrick, for watching over,
and preserving the faith of the Irish people. O dearest
St. Patrick ! heed not the unworthiness of thy children;
but continue, in the future as in the past, to pray for them.
O glorious Apostle, St. Patrick, guard and preserve, to
the Day of Judgment, the purity of the faith and morals
of thy people in every land and in every clime. O beloved
St. Patrick ! obtain from God that Erin, our dear country,
may become again what she formerly was, "THE ISLAND
OF SAINTS AND SCHOLARS." Amen.
