I studied Latin for 6 years (4 years at Jesuit High School and 2 years at New Orleans University); so, I know the “Mea Culpa” well. Also, I was an altar boy at Corpus Christi and Sacred Heart grammar schools. During the “Confiteor” part of the Mass at the Penitential Act, the congregation beats their heart 3 times, the altar boy rings the bell 3 times as we confess (Confiteor) to the Lord: “Mea Culpa! Mea Culpa! Mea Maxima Culpa!” We literally apologize to God. The Latin translation is: “Through my fault! Through my fault! Through my most grievous fault!” I just finished praying the “Mea Culpa” on my knees as I burned my Novena candle and burned incense… because:
I created on FaceBook a ghost/alias page for posts like the above picture. I will explain how I inadvertently posted that picture on my “family” page at first. On Instagram it is a video, but appears on Facebook as a still picture; and I did not know this girl was going to spin around into a pose like that. Some of my friends, family and church members on my “family” FaceBook page complained in the past that I should not post salacious pictures of girls like this on F/b if I call myself a Christian. So, I created my “alias” page for ex-schoolmates, workmates, etc. Also, I actually meant to post this to my “alias” page. I truly do honor the wishes of my church members, friends and family. In fact, I will presently burn my Novena candle “post haste” in order to say my MEA CULPA for accidentally posting the picture to my family page.
To the Lord I say, “Mea Culpa! Mea Culpa! Mea Maxima Culpa!”
