Please provide your exact reasons for the merger. As is, there are different acts with different prayers to the Blessed Virgin vs Jesus. I see no advantage for the merger. The disadvantage is all the effort in doinig it and discussing it. There are a whole pile of suggestions for mergers, and the amchair observers who who suggest it usualy don't end up doing the work to get it right, and I end up doing it.

No reasons were provided and no discussion after a few weeks. So I will remove the tag now. History2007 (talk) 02:38, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

When 1st Friday of April falls on Good Friday[edit]

In reference to 1st Friday of 9 consecutive months, I find: "On these days, a person is to attend Holy Mass and receive communion." What is the citation for this reference to Mass? If 1st Friday of April falls on Good Friday, there can be no Mass, but a change made before Vatican Council II was that Communion WAS to be distributed to the faithful on Good Friday. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:10, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

Proper Noun?[edit]

Is the subject of the article a proper noun? The article has "Act of Reparation" in the first sentence but the title is "Acts of reparation." Regardless, this page should be WP:moved per WP:singular. --JFH (talk) 21:13, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

Is the actually a real thing?[edit]

I've looked all over the place, and I cannot find a single source which talks about "Acts of Reparation" as if they were a class of rites/prayers/whatever. It seems to me that someone has taken a bunch of similarly named prayers and worked out a theory about them. Mangoe (talk) 22:21, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

  • Yes they are or were a real thing. In any case; Support deletion of this article; these acts of reparation and everything about this article mentions old stuff that may well have been done away with and the book where these repararation prayers were in (Raccolta) was replaced by Enchiridion Indulgentiarum. – (talk) 17:09, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose deletion of this article. Enchiridion Indulgentiarum (EI) replaced Raccolta to comply with Indulgentiarum doctrina. Doctrina does not mention this category. EI 1999, the 4th ed., concession 3 is an Act of reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Among the "interior dispositions and virtues," according to the Directory on popular piety and the liturgy (DPPL), is "a genuine desire to please the Lord and to do reparation and penance for the offences offered to Him" (n. 61). The DPPL describes that this particular act of reparation, i.e. Act of reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, is "a prayer with which the faithful, mindful of the infinite goodness of Christ, implore mercy for the offences committed in so many ways against his Sacred Heart" (n. 171) The analytical index in Directory on popular piety and the liturgy further describes that as the "formula to implore mercy and to make reparation the the Sacred Heart of Jesus". According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC), the sacrament of "Eucharist is also offered in reparation for the sins of the living and the dead" (n. 1414). The sacrifice of Christ on the cross "is the offering of the Son of God made man, who in freedom and love offered his life to his Father through the Holy Spirit in reparation for our disobedience. [...] Jesus substitutes his obedience for our disobedience" (n. 614). The sacrament of Penance includes, according to the CCC, "the intention to make reparation and do works of reparation" (n. 1491). Reparation is part of the Catholic doctrine regarding the Ten Commandments. A doctrine about commandment 7 (Exodus 20:15), is according to the CCC that "injustice committed requires reparation" (n. 2454). A doctrine about commandment 8 (Exodus 20:16) is according to the CCC that "offense committed against the truth requires reparation" (n. 2509). According to The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church satisfaction is "An act of reparation for an injury committed. In Christian theology it is usually applied to the payment of a penalty due to God on account of sin" (p. 1466). The article needs an expert editor who can find good secondary sources and better organize the article but it should not be deleted. –BoBoMisiu (talk) 22:11, 13 September 2015 (UTC)
