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.
Christ said, “Have you not read that from the beginning the Creator made them male and female and said, ‘For this reason, a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh?’ So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has joined together, no human being must separate” (Mt 19:4-6).
The Divine Will of God the Almighty Father in relation to marriage, for those who are baptized Christians, is that one man and one woman give themselves to each other, with the intent for life, in and through the covenant of sacramental marriage. Anything else is neither of God, nor from God, despite man-made revisionism and precludes grace, because the Holy Spirit Who is God cannot live where the darkness of sin resides.
The difference between the darkness and the light is that the former sends forth all kinds of falsehoods to appear as light, while being no more than multiple variations of darkness itself; whereas the light shines through with the reality of truth Who is God like Whom there is no other.
There is and can be no mercy of God for humankind without truth, and truth is both a Person and the Word of God the Father: Jesus Christ; God Himself. Any other kind of mercy is false mercy because it can lead to the eternal death of people’s souls.
Ask Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of the Living God, to grant you peace. You may search repeatedly for peace in all the things of the world, in and through all the false gods, idols, and yes; even non-apostolic religions. However, none of these can give you true peace as they do not have it; it is not theirs to give. Only Christ can give you genuine peace, because He is the Prince of Peace in Himself. Everything else is false coin -a man-made sham.
Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfil. Verily, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law, until all things have taken place. Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do so will be called least in the kingdom of heaven. But whoever obeys and teaches these commandments will be called greatest in the kingdom of heaven. I tell you, unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and the Pharisees, you will not enter into the kingdom of heaven (Mt 5:17-20).
“I am the Lord thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt not have strange gods before Me.
Thou shalt not make to thyself a graven thing, nor the likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or in the earth beneath, nor of those things that are in the waters under the earth. Thou shalt not adore them, nor serve them: I am the Lord thy God, mighty, jealous, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me: And showing mercy unto thousands to them that love Me and keep My commandments.
Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain: for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that shall take the name of the Lord his God in vain.
Remember that thou keep holy the sabbath day. Six days shalt thou labour, and shalt do all thy works. But on the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: thou shalt do no work on it, thou nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy beast, nor the stranger that is within thy gates. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and the sea, and all things that are in them, and rested on the seventh day: therefore the Lord blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it.
Honour thy father and thy mother, that thou mayst be longlived upon the land which the Lord thy God will give thee.
Thou shalt not kill.
Thou shalt not commit adultery.
Thou shalt not steal.
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
Thou shalt no covet thy neighbor’s house; neither shalt thou desire his wife, nor his servant, nor his handmaid, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is his.”
“‘The Lord God waits, He does not condemn us and cries. Because He loves us!’ He behaves ‘like a mother hen with little chickens;’ this is our victory” – Pope Francis, Homily at Casa Santa Marta, October 29, 2015. Read more here.
In the beginning was the Word: and the Word was with God and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things came to be, not one thing had its being but through Him. All that came to be had life in Him and that life was the light of men (Jn 1:1-4).
Jesus was, in His divinity, in His Father’s Divine Heart before His human mother, the Virgin Mary was created in the flesh. In fact, in the very beginning there was God – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (the Holy Trinity) – and silence. Nothing else; no one else. God the Father always was, is, and will be (more…)
How much the Son, Jesus Christ, loves the Heavenly Father! Christ does not just love us with the whole of Himself to the extent of having died on the Cross for us. He loves the Father – His Father and our Father – with the entirety of His being. It is a love inconceivable and utterly crazy to some, but awe-inspiring to see. Infinite Love loves Infinite Love with infinity.
“Thy Kingdom come:” how beautiful and profound are those three words in the Lord’s prayer. Inherently, though some are still unaware of this, those three words of Jesus Christ, which He taught us to say daily, mean that we are asking our beautiful Father to come and live in us as we live in Him. This as wherever there is the Almighty Father there is the Kingdom, because the Father Himself is the Kingdom and provides the kingdom for His faithful children to enjoy. Ergo “Thy Kingdom come” is the coming and reigning of the Divine Will on earth.
You came that Tuesday morning in church, when I was alone with You in the Blessed Sacrament after everyone left during Eucharistic adoration. You came in response both to your Mother’s request and to prove me wrong.
The day before I had directly challenged your Mother, the Virgin Mary, to prove that what She repeatedly said throughout the centuries all over the globe was true: namely, that we are not orphans in an indifferent world. Among other things, I said to Her, “Prove it to me or I will not believe it!” Despite everything which had transpired until then – all Your graces and visits by Your Family – I still harbored doubts about this particular issue.

“Here, this is your Brother. If you want Him, He is yours” (God the Father, 2010).
You came that late Tuesday night in the bedroom after appearing next to the Heavenly Father’s Presence, while the Virgin Mary stood in front of both You and me as the demons fled. A pair of demons attempted to rip my heart out physically from the left side, pulling at it with great hatred and vengeance with what passed for their hands. The pain, fright and terror were atrocious. I screamed interiorly for help and Your Mother appeared in front of me once again clothed in white. She swept Her large mantle toward the demons with Her right hand, making them flee with rapidity and high-pitched shrieks. As Our Lady continued covering me with Her mantle while I attempted to recover from the shock of what transpired, the Father descended behind me with His Presence and said: “Do not move. You need Us right now.” (more…)
