The absence of humility in affluent churches 

Flash and pizzazz. Plush semicircular, semi reclining benches with deep cushions. Sloping floor, lighting and seating a la cine theater auditorium. Ushers and extraordinary ministers of communion galore, countless rules and regulations. Men in suits, starched white shirts and ties; women dressed up to the nines as though attending a gala event at the Metropolitan Opera. An entrance and a hallway almost the size of the church itself.

But where is God?

There He is, caged not only in the tabernacle, but also behind the decorative glass paneling; doubly caged. And not even deserving of a single flower to His name despite all the flash and pizzazz!

God? Who is God? Do we even care about Him and about having just a tiny, little bit of humility? Oh, who cares! The important thing, it seems, is that we show just how much money we all have; how loaded we are. Who cares about anything or anyone else!

The vileness of the shepherds

There You were all alone, abandoned in an open exposition tabernacle that was dark, with no one in attendance – except for two street cats. The lights would not turn on, the flowers were not real; the room smelled strongly of mold, but the windows were shut tight. No human person was there to adore You – not even one single, withering soul; yet outside there was non-stop chatter and traffic all around.

Mortal sin – what is that? Fidelity – what is that? Worship in Spirit and in Truth – what on earth are those?

So there You were, O Trinitarian God of the universe in the Eucharistic Heart of Christ, but abandoned in Your lonely jail by those You called to be Your very own. All You ever wanted from any and all of Your human creatures was love – but it is precisely love that they have refused to give.

Lettera aperta a Pietro / Open letter to Peter

In verita’ ti dico che questa stessa notte, prima che il gallo canti, tu mi rinnegherai tre volte (Matt 26:34).

Pietro, riguardo la tua lettera ai vescovi argentini dove spieghi la ‘corretta interpretazione’ di capitolo VIII della tua esortazione apostolica Amoris Laetitia, sulla recezione del sacramento dell’Eucaristia per i divorziati risposati senza annullamento valido: ti sbagli. E tu lo sai molto bene questo nel profondo del tuo cuore e della tua anima. Quello che hai detto non e’ possibile perche’

Chiunque mangera’ il pane o berra’ il calice del Signore indegnamente, sara’ colpevole verso il corpo ed il sangue del Signore . . . Chi mangia e beve, mangia e beve un giudizio su se stesso, se non discerne il corpo del Signore (1 Cor 11:27,29).

Pietro, sai molto bene che il tuo ufficio non ti appartiene per la tua gratificazione, ma per portare i figli nel grembo del Cuore Divino di Dio nostro Padre. Questo e’ l’unico ambito del tuo ufficio; nessun altro. Allora, Pietro, non fare come il tuo antenato! Non diventare lo strumento temporaneo dell’oscurita’ in un mondo che muore per la luce. Correggi il tuo errore e revochi quello che hai detto!

In truth I say to you that in this night before the cock crows, you will deny me three times (Mt 26:34).

Peter, regarding your letter to the Argentinian bishops whereby you explain the ‘correct interpretation’ of chapter eight of your apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia, about reception of the sacrament of the Eucharist for the divorced and remarried without valid annulment: you are wrong. And you know this very well in the depths of your heart and soul. What you have said is not possible because

Whoever shall eat this bread or drink this chalice unworthily shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord . . . For he who eats or drinks unworthily, eats and drink judgment to himself, not discerning the body of the Lord (1 Cor 11:27,29).

Peter, you know very well that your office does not belong to you for your gratification, but to bring the children back into the Divine Heart of God our Father. This is the only scope of your office; no other. So, Peter, do not act like your ancestor! Do not become the temporary instrument of darkness in a world dying for light. Correct your error and revoke what you have said!

In what is soon to come, defend your God

  • In what is soon to come, defend your God, the One and only Almighty Father; Him Who loved you and created you;
  • In what is soon to come, defend His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, His divinity and His incarnation; Him Who died for you, so you could spend eternity in the bosom of the Father;
  • In what is soon to come, defend Their One and only Holy Spirit; Him Who made you part of the Body of Christ;
  • In what is soon to come, defend the Immaculate Virgin Mary and her perpetual virginity; she who loves you as a mother and gave up her Son so you could live forever;
  • In what is soon to come, defend the Real Presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist; the Salvation of the world;
  • In what is soon to come, defend Christ as the only Way to the Father, for s/he who denies Christ also denies Almighty God;
  • In what is soon to come, defend all the dogmas of the Catholic faith, in accordance with the desires of the Heart of the Father;
  • In what is soon to come, defend Peter, the Rock, against Judas and do not abandon the Body of Christ, the Church.

Do not abandon God

Do not abandon God. In what is soon to come, namely the Passion of the Church, do not abandon your God, Him Who loved you first.

The perfect mercy and justice of Almighty God

Everything in these times is being slowly incorporated back into the Divine Will. That is why there is tribulation that, for a time, will increase. Being omnipotent and perfect in His decisions, God infinitely prefers that people return to Him of their own free will. But whoever does not return back to Him through the gate of His mercy, shall pass, without fail, through the gate of His justice.

The third Passover

You shall hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that ye be not troubled. For these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there shall be pestilences, and famines, and earthquakes in places: Now all these are the beginnings of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall put you to death: and you shall be hated by all nations for my name’ s sake. And then shall many be scandalized: and shall betray one another: and shall hate one another.

And many false prophets shall rise, and shall seduce many. And because iniquity hath abounded, the charity of many shall grow cold. But he that shall persevere to the end, he shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom, shall be preached in the whole world, for a testimony to all nations, and then shall the consummation come (Mt 24:6-14).

“Make Me known”

Make Me known so that they can know Me, love Me, and honor Me

This is what the Almighty Father desires: to be known, loved, honored, respected, venerated, and worshiped by all His children, his human creatures, on earth.

Will you make Him known?

Signs of the times – 31

“And the prophet [Jeremiah], having received an oracle, ordered that the tent and the ark should follow with him, and that he went out to the mountain where Moses had gone up and had seen the inheritance of God. Jeremiah came and found a cave-dwelling, and he brought there the tent and the ark and the altar of incense; then he sealed up the entrance. Some of those who followed him came up intending to mark the way, but could not find it. When Jeremiah learned of it, he rebuked them and declared: ‘The place shall remain unknown until God gathers His people together again and shows His mercy'” (2 Mac 2:4-7).

The purity of the Heavenly Father

The Almighty Father is pure and perfect; immaculate in His holiness – a purity and a holiness that amaze even the angels themselves. Yet in this day and age, many – if not most – have allowed themselves to become impure under a variety of rationalizations and this in more ways than one. How, therefore, do you expect to meet the Father and live with Him for eternity if you do not genuinely renounce and remove impurity from your lives?

Actions, not words, manifest the genuine Christian

Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of Heaven, but only the one who does the will of My Father (Mt 7:21).

It is actions, not words or official affiliations, particularly in the little necessities of everyday life, that manifest who is the true Christian at heart, because anyone can say words and a multitude of them at that. It is only he or she, however, who truly holds the Spirit of God in their heart and soul, who can genuinely act as a Christian in the true sense of the word.

There is always hope

There is always hope for everyone, despite the blackness, the pervasiveness and the persistence of some of our sins. Always, there is hope; always! Because Mercy and Love are among His most prominent names.

Return to live with genuineness in our Father’s Heart! Return to that most tender and loving of hearts – the tenderness and love of which you cannot even begin to conceive. Return to live in His Divine Heart as you once resided and both the sorrow of your heart and your ceaseless tears will be relieved. Return with sincerity to Him Who had been your first love (Rv 2:4). Do not let the circumstances of either your youth or of today cloud the judgment you once had.

Do not let the pain of the past and of the present ruin your future – in particular, your eternal future. Pray for grace and it shall indeed be granted to you in abundance, because our Father never stopped loving you with the infinity of His Divine Heart.

Thank You, beautiful Father

Thank You, most beautiful and infinitely loving Almighty Father, for all the graces You have given us out of the sheer goodness of Your Divine Heart. We love You, we adore You, and we worship You.

So that they may be one as We are One

The heart and joy of the Father

“Our condition, as children of God, is the fruit of the love of the heart of the Father. It does not depend on our merits or our actions, thus no one can take it away from us. No one can take this dignity away from us, not even the Devil! . . . In whatever situation in life, I must not forget that I will never stop being a child of God – of a Father Who loves me and awaits my return. Even in the worst situation in life, God waits for me and wants to embrace me . . . We all need to enter the house of the Father and participate in His joy, in the feast of mercy and of fraternity” (Pope Francis, General Audience, May 11, 2016).

How can you love the Father without the Son?

How can you love the Eternal Father without the Son?  And how can you truly love the only begotten Son without also loving the Eternal Father, since They are One (in the Spirit; Jn 17:22-23)? How can you desire and welcome One, but not the Other?

Is Hell reserved only for Satan and demons?

The question was asked, “Is Hell reserved only for Satan and demons?” The answer is in the negative. Hell is also reserved for human persons who die with mortal sin/s on their souls, for which they do not feel contrite. Hell is very real and everlasting.

The first words of Adam to God – Response to a question 

The question was asked, “What were the first words that Adam said to God?” The answer is beautiful and telling in its simplicity. After having been created from the clay, the mud, of the ground, the first man, Adam, being at that point full of grace, looked at God and told Him, “I love You, my Father.”

The Sacred Thorns bleed again with the Precious Blood of Christ

Two of the Sacred Thorns that were part of the Crown of Thorns that Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, was forced to wear during His Passion – one in Andria (below), the other one in Bari, Italy – have commenced bleeding again with the Precious Blood of Christ. This miracle, which has been happening for centuries, occurs whenever Good Friday and the Solemnity of the Annunciation fall on the same day as they did two days ago.

Pray for those who have lost their faith 

This Easter season, pray for those who have lost their faith and are publicly denying the Resurrection of Christ, particularly those who are Catholic/Orthodox priests/former priests, so that they may be granted the grace of faith anew by God, despite their denial, as they remain priests forever in the order of Melchisedek.

Happy Easter to you all
