Vatican Cardinal Warns: “the West Will Disappear” Because of Mass Migration

“Islam will invade the world”. “I’m afraid Europe will die.”

5 April, 2019  summit.news

Vatican Cardinal Robert Sarah warns that the “west will disappear” as a result of mass migration, adding that “Islam will invade the world” and “completely change culture, anthropology, and moral vision.”

Sarah’s new book, Evening Draws Near and the Day is Nearly Over, is causing controversy in Europe because it explicitly identifies Muslim migration as a harbinger of the continent’s collapse.

“If the West continues in this fatal way, there is a great risk that, due to a lack of birth, it will disappear, invaded by foreigners, just as Rome has been invaded by barbarians,” said Sarah, adding, “My country is predominantly Muslim. I think I know what reality I’m talking about.”

The Cardinal also blamed the European Union for its “desire to globalize the world, ridding it of nations with their distinctive characteristics,” labeling the move “sheer madness”.

“The Brussels Commission thinks only about building a free market in the service of the great financial powers,” he continued. “The European Union no longer protects the peoples within it. It protects the banks.”

In a previous video interview, Sarah warned that Europe had lost its roots and was dying because of fewer European natives having children.

In recent interviews he has gone even further, noting that priests, bishops and cardinals within the Catholic Church have betrayed the teachings of Christ by pursuing political activism.

Sarah’s comments put him at odds with the Pope, who has relentlessly promoted migration from African and Middle Eastern countries into Europe.

According to the Cardinal, it is wrong to “use the word of God to promote migration,” and it is better “to help people flourish in their culture than to encourage them to come to Europe.”

Sarah slammed mass migration as a “new form of slavery” because migrants end up “without work or dignity”.

“Is that what the Church wants?” he asked.

Sarah remained hopeful of the situation being reversed, asserting, “This is not the end of the world, the Church will rise.”

    HOPE IN THE STORM

    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 in heaven. (Matthew 7:21)

    Very few days go by when a conversation with a good Christian may presents itself with a relativistic view of morality. Perhaps, a portion of the conversation might sounds like this, “I know she is living with her boyfriend, but she seems so happy. As long as she is happy, I am happy and her boyfriend is such a nice guy.” Says the friend, mom, dad, aunt or uncle. They may even continue, “If I love her, I should support him/her.” This is said in spite of the fact that objectively they are living in a state that is gravely morally wrong. When challenged with that position the response of often, “You are being judgmental.”

    Inquisition Pt 1 – Continues in Comments

    (Latin inquirere, to look to).
    By this term is usually meant a special ecclesiastical institution for combating or suppressing heresy. Its characteristic mark seems to be the bestowal on special judges of judicial powers in matters of faith, and this by supreme ecclesiastical authority, not temporal or for individual cases, but as a universal and permanent office. Moderns experience difficulty in understanding this institution, because they have, to no small extent, lost sight of two facts.
    On the one hand they have ceased to grasp religious belief as something objective, as the gift of God, and therefore outside the realm of free private judgment; on the other they no longer see in the Church a society perfect and sovereign, based substantially on a pure and authentic Revelation, whose first most important duty must naturally be to retain unsullied this original deposit of faith. Before the religious revolution of the sixteenth century these views were still common to all Christians; that orthodoxy should be maintained at any cost seemed self-evident.
    However, while the positive suppression of heresy by ecclesiastical and civil authority in Christian society is as old as the Church, the Inquisition as a distinct ecclesiastical tribunal is of much later origin. Historically it is a phase in the growth of ecclesiastical legislation, whose distinctive traits can be fully understood only by a careful study of the conditions amid which it grew up

    as though it were not permitted to come forward as avengers of God, and to pronounce sentence of death! . . . But, say you, the State cannot punish in the name of God. Yet was it not in the name of God that Moses and Phineas consigned to death the worshippers of the Golden Calf and those who despised the true religion?
    This was the first time that a Catholic bishop championed a decisive cooperation of the State in religious questions, and its right to inflict death on heretics. For the first time, also, the Old Testament was appealed to, though such appeals had been previously rejected by Christian teachers.
    St. Augustine, on the contrary, was still opposed to the use of force, and tried to lead back the erring by means of instruction; at most he admitted the imposition of a moderate fine for refractory persons. Finally, however, he changed his views, whether moved thereto by the incredible excesses of the Circumcellions or by the good results achieved by the use of force, or favoring force through the persuasions of other bishops. Apropos of his apparent inconsistency it is well to note carefully whom he is addressing. He appears to speak in one way to government officials, who wanted the existing laws carried out to their fullest extent, and in another to the Donatists, who denied to the State any right of punishing dissenters. In his correspondence with state officials he dwells on Christian charity and toleration, and represents the heretics as straying lambs, to be sought out and perhaps, if recalcitrant chastised with rods and frightened with threats of severer but not to be driven back to the fold by means of rack and sword . On the other hand, in his writings against the Donatists he upholds the rights of the State: sometimes, he says, a salutary severity would be to the interest of the erring ones themselves and likewise protective of true believers and the community at large (Vacandard, 1. c., pp. 17-26).
    As to Priscillianism, not a few points remain yet obscure, despite recent valuable researches. It seems certain, however, that Priscillian, Bishop of Avila in Spain, was accused of heresy and sorcery, and found guilty by several councils. St. Ambrose

    St. Ambrose at Milan and St. Damascus at Rome seem to have refused him a hearing. At length he appealed to Emperor Maximus at Trier, but to his detriment, for he was there condemned to death. Priscillian himself, no doubt in full consciousness of his own innocence, had formerly called for repression of the Manichæans by the sword. But the foremost Christian teachers did not share these sentiments, and his own execution gave them occasion for a solemn protest against the cruel treatment meted out to him by the imperial government. St. Martin of Tours, then at Trier, exerted himself to obtain from the ecclesiastical authority the abandonment of the accusation, and induced the emperor to promise that on no account would he shed the blood of Priscillian, since ecclesiastical deposition by the bishops would be punishment enough, and bloodshed would be opposed to the Divine Law (Sulpicius Severus, Chronicle II and Dialogue III). After the execution he strongly blamed both the accusers and the emperor, and for a long time refused to hold communion with such bishops as had been in any way responsible for Priscillian’s death. The great Bishop of Milan, St. Ambrose, described that execution as a crime.

    Priscillianism, however, did not disappear with the death of its originator; on the contrary, it spread with extraordinary rapidity, and, through its open adoption of Manichaeism, became more of a public menace than ever. In this way the severe judgments of St. Augustine and St. Jerome against Priscillianism become intelligible. In 447 Leo the Great had to reproach the Priscillianists with loosening the holy bonds of marriage, treading all decency under foot, and deriding all law, human and Divine. It seemed to him natural that temporal rulers should punish such sacrilegious madness, and should put to death the founder of the sect and some of his followers. He goes on to say that this redounded to the advantage of the Church: “quae etsi sacerdotali contenta iudicio, cruentas refugit ultiones, severis tamen christianorum principum constitutionibus adiuratur, dum ad spiritale recurrunt remedium, qui timent corporale supplicium” — though the Church was content with a spiritual sentence on the part of its bishops and was averse to the shedding of blood, nevertheless it was aided by the imperial severity, inasmuch as the fear of corporal punishment drove the guilty to seek a spiritual remedy (Epistle 15).

    The ecclesiastical ideas of the first five centuries may be summarized as follows:
    the Church should for no cause shed blood (St. Augustine, St. Ambrose, St. Leo I, and others);
    other teachers, however, like Optatus of Mileve and Priscillian, believed that the State could pronounce the death penalty on heretics in case the public welfare demanded it;
    the majority held that the death penalty for heresy, when not civilly criminal, was irreconcilable with the spirit of Christianity.
    St. Augustine (Epistle 100, n. 1), almost in the name of the western Church, says: “Corrigi eos volumus, non necari, nec disciplinam circa eos negligi volumus, nec suppliciis quibus digni sunt exerceri” — we wish them corrected, not put to death; we desire the triumph of (ecclesiastical) discipline, not the death penalties that they deserve. St. John Chrysostom says substantially the same in the name of the Eastern Church (Homily 46 on Matthew, no. 1): “To consign a heretic to death is to commit an offence beyond atonement”; and in the next chapter he says that God forbids their execution, even as He forbids us to uproot cockle, but He does not forbid us to repel them, to deprive them of free speech, or to prohibit their assemblies. The help of the “secular arm” was therefore not entirely rejected; on the contrary, as often as the Christian welfare, general or domestic, required it, Christian rulers sought to stem the evil by appropriate measures. As late the seventh century St. Isidore of Seville expresses similar sentiments (Sententiarum, III, iv, nn. 4-6).
    How little we are to trust the vaunted impartiality of Henry Charles Lee, the American historian of the Inquisition, we may here illustrate by an example. In his “History of the Inquisition in the Middle Ages” (New York, 1888, I, 215), He closes this period with these words:

    It was only sixty-two years after the slaughter of Priscillian and his followers had excited so much horror, that Leo I, when the heresy seemed to be reviving in 447, not only justified the act, but declared that, if the followers of a heresy so damnable were allowed to live, there would be an end to human and Divine law. The final step had been taken and the church was definitely pledged to the suppression of heresy at any cost. It is impossible not to attribute to ecclesiastical influence the successive edicts by which, from the time of Theodosius the Great, persistence in heresy was punished with death.
    In these lines Lee has transferred to the pope words employed by the emperor. Moreover, it is simply the exact opposite of historical truth to assert that the imperial edicts punishing heresy with death were due to ecclesiastical influence, since we have shown that in this period the more influential ecclesiastical authorities declared that the death penalty was contrary to the spirit of the Gospel, and themselves opposed its execution. For centuries this was the ecclesiastical attitude both in theory and in practice. Thus, in keeping with the civil law, some Manichæans were executed at Ravenna in 556. On the other hand. Elipandus of Toledo and Felix of Urgel, the chiefs of Adoptionism and Predestinationism, were condemned by councils, but were otherwise left unmolested. We may note, however, that the monk Gothescalch, after the condemnation of his false doctrine that Christ had not died for all mankind, was by the Synods of Mainz in 848 and Quiercy in 849 sentenced to flogging and imprisonment, punishments then common in monasteries for various infractions of the rule.

    (3) About the year 1000 Manichæans from Bulgaria, under various names, spread over Western Europe. They were numerous in Italy, Spain, Gaul and Germany. Christian popular sentiment soon showed itself adverse to these dangerous sectaries, and resulted in occasional local persecutions, naturally in forms expressive of the spirit of the age. In 1122 King Robert the Pious (regis iussu et universae plebis consensu), “because he feared for the safety of the kingdom and the salvation of souls” had thirteen distinguished citizens, ecclesiastic and lay, burnt alive at Orléans. Elsewhere similar acts were due to popular outbursts. A few years later the Bishop of Châlons observed that the sect was spreading in his diocese, and asked of Wazo, Bishop of Liège, advice as to the use of force: “An terrenae potestatis gladio in eos sit animadvertendum necne” (“Vita Wasonis”, cc. xxv, xxvi, in P.L., CXLII, 752; “Wazo ad Roger. II, episc. Catalaunens”, and “Anselmi Gesta episc. Leod.” in “Mon. Germ. SS.”, VII, 227 sq.). Wazo replied that this was contrary to the spirit of the Church and the words of its Founder, Who ordained that the tares should be allowed to grow with the wheat until the day of the harvest, lest the wheat be uprooted with the tares; those who today were tares might to-morrow be converted, and turn into wheat; let them therefore live, and let mere excommunication suffice. St. Chrysostom, as we have seen, had taught similar doctrine. This principle could not be always followed. Thus at Goslar, in the Christmas season of 1051, and in 1052, several heretics were hanged because Emperor Henry III wanted to prevent the further spread of “the heretical leprosy.” A few years later, in 1076 or 1077, a Catharist was condemned to the stake by the Bishop of Cambrai and his chapter. Other Catharists, in spite of the archbishop’s intervention, were given their choice by the magistrates of Milan between doing homage to the Cross and mounting the pyre. By far the greater number chose the latter. In 1114 the Bishop of Soissons kept sundry heretics in durance in his episcopal city. But while he was gone to Beauvais, to ask advice of the bishops assembled there for a synod

    the “believing folk, fearing the habitual soft-heartedness of ecclesiastics (clericalem verens mollitiem), stormed the prison took the accused outside of town, and burned them.
    The people disliked what to them was the extreme dilatoriness of the clergy in pursuing heretics. In 1144 Adalerbo II of Liège hoped to bring some imprisoned Catharists to better knowledge through the grace of God, but the people, less indulgent, assailed the unhappy creatures and only with the greatest trouble did the bishop succeed in rescuing some of them from death by fire. A like drama was enacted about the same time at Cologne, while the archbishop and the priests earnestly sought to lead the misguided back into the Church, the latter were violently taken by the mob (a populis nimio zelo abreptis) from the custody of the clergy and burned at the stake. The best-known heresiarchs of that time, Peter of Bruys and Arnold of Brescia, met a similar fate — the first on the pyre as a victim of popular fury, and the latter under the henchman’s axe as a victim of his political enemies.
    In short, no blame attaches to the Church for her behavior towards heresy in those rude days. Among all the bishops of the period, so far as can be ascertained, Theodwin of Liège, successor of the aforesaid Wazo and predecessor of Adalbero II, alone appealed to the civil power for the punishment of heretics, and even he did not call for the death penalty, which was rejected by all. who were more highly respected in the twelfth century than Peter Canter, the most learned man of his time, and St. Bernard of Clairvaux? The former says (“Verbum abbreviatum”, c. lxxviii, in P.L., CCV, 231):

    Whether they be convicted of error, or freely confess their guilt, Catharists are not to be put to death, at least not when they refrain from armed assaults upon the Church. For although the Apostle said, A man that is a heretic after the third admonition, avoid, he certainly did not say, Kill him. Throw them into prison, if you will, but do not put them to death (cf. Geroch von Reichersberg, “De investigatione Antichristi III”, 42).
    So far was St. Bernard from agreeing with the methods of the people of Cologne, that he laid down the axiom: Fides suadenda, non imponenda (By persuasion, not by violence, are men to be won to the Faith). And if he censures the carelessness of the princes, who were to blame because little foxes devastated the vineyard, yet he adds that the latter must not be captured by force but by arguments (capiantur non armis, sed argumentis); the obstinate were to be excommunicated, and if necessary kept in confinement for the safety of others (aut corrigendi sunt ne pereant, aut, ne perimant, coercendi). (See Vacandard, 1. c., 53 sqq.) The synods of the period employ substantially the same terms, e.g. the synod at Reims in 1049 under Leo IX, that at Toulouse in 1119, at which Callistus II presided, and finally the Lateran Council of 1139.
    Hence, the occasional executions of heretics during this period must be ascribed partly to the arbitrary action of individual rulers, partly to the fanatic outbreaks of the overzealous populace, and in no wise to ecclesiastical law or the ecclesiastical authorities. There were already, it is true, canonists who conceded to the Church the right to pronounce sentence of death on heretics; but the question was treated as a purely academic one, and the theory exercised virtually no influence on real life. Excommunication, proscription, imprisonment, etc., were indeed inflicted, being intended rather as forms of atonement than of real punishment, but never the capital sentence. The maxim of Peter Cantor was still adhered to: “Catharists, even though divinely convicted in an ordeal, must not be punished by death.”

    In the second half of the twelfth century, however, heresy in the form of Catharism spread in truly alarming fashion, and not only menaced the Church’s existence, but undermined the very foundations of Christian society. In opposition to this propaganda there grew up a kind of prescriptive law — at least throughout Germany, France, and Spain — which visited heresy with death by the flames. England on the whole remained untainted by heresy. When, in 1166, about thirty sectaries made their way thither, Henry II ordered that they be burnt on their foreheads with red-hot iron, be beaten with rods in the public square, and then driven off. Moreover, he forbade anyone to give them shelter or otherwise assist them, so that they died partly from hunger and partly from the cold of winter. Duke Philip of Flanders, aided by William of the White Hand, Archbishop of Reims, was particularly severe towards heretics. They caused many citizens in their domains, nobles and commoners, clerics, knights, peasants, spinsters, widows, and married women, to be burnt alive, confiscated their property, and divided it between them. This happened in 1183.
    Between 1183 and 1206 Bishop Hugo of Auxerre acted similarly towards the neo-Mainchaeans. Some he despoiled; the others he either exiled or sent to the stake. King Philip Augustus of France had eight Catharists burnt at Troyes in 1200, one at Nevers in 1201, several at Braisne-sur-Vesle in 1204, and many at Paris — “priests, clerics, laymen, and women belonging to the sect”. Raymund V of Toulouse (1148-94) promulgated a law which punished with death the followers of the sect and their favourers. Simon de Montfort’s men-at-arms believed in 1211 that they were carrying out this law when they boasted how they had burned alive many, and would continue to do so (unde multos combussimus et adhuc cum invenimus idem facere non cessamus).

    In 1197 Peter II, King of Aragon and Count of Barcelona, issued an edict in obedience to which the Waldensians and all other schismatics were expelled from the land; whoever of this sect was still found in his kingdom or his county after Palm Sunday of the next year was to suffer death by fire, also confiscation of goods.
    Ecclesiastical legislation was far from this severity. Alexander III at the Lateran Council of 1179 renewed the decisions already made as to schismatics in Southern France, and requested secular sovereigns to silence those disturbers of public order, if necessary by force, to achieve which object they were at liberty to imprison the guilty (servituti subicere, subdere) and to appropriate their possessions. According to the agreement made by Lucius III and Emperor Frederick Barbarossa at Verona (1148), the heretics of every community were to be sought out, brought before the episcopal court, excommunicated, and given up to the civil power to be suitably punished (debita animadversione puniendus). The suitable punishment (debita animadversio, ultio) did not, however, as yet mean capital punishment, but the proscriptive ban, though even this, it is true, entailed exile, expropriation, destruction of the culprits dwelling, infamy, debarment from public office, and the like. The “Continuatio Zwellensis altera, ad ann. 1184” (Mon. Germ. Hist.: SS., IX, 542) accurately describes the condition of heretics at this time when it says that the pope excommunicated them, and the emperor put them under the civil ban, while he confiscated their goods (papa eos excomunicavit imperator vero tam res quam personas ipsorum imperiali banno subiecit).

    Under Innocent III nothing was done to intensify or add to the extant statutes against heresy, though this pope gave them a wider range by the action of his legates and through the Fourth Lateran Council (1215). But this act was indeed a relative service to the heretics, for the regular canonical procedure thus introduced did much to abrogate the arbitrariness, passion, and injustice of the Civil courts in Spain, France and Germany. In so far as, and so long as, his prescriptions remained in force, no summary condemnations or executions en masse occurred, neither stake nor rack were set up; and, if, on one occasion during the first year of his pontificate, to justify confiscation, he appealed to the Roman Law and its penalties for crimes against the sovereign power, yet he did not draw the extreme conclusion that heretics deserved to be burnt. His reign affords many examples showing how much of the vigour he took away in practice from the existing penal code.

    Moral Relativism- The Modern Heresy That Has Destroyed the Moral Fiber of the Western World By Jay Toups in America, Catholic, Catholic Social Doctrine, Truth on October 25, 2017 No comments 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 in heaven. (Matthew 7:21) Very few days go by when a conversation with a good Christian may presents itself with a relativistic view of morality. Perhaps, a portion of the conversation might sounds like this, “I know she is living with her boyfriend, but she seems so happy. As long as she is happy, I am happy and her boyfriend is such a nice guy.” Says the friend, mom, dad, aunt or uncle. They may even continue, “If I love her, I should support him/her.” This is said in spite of the fact that objectively they are living in a state that is gravely morally wrong. When challenged with that position the response of often, “You are being judgmental.” Today, over 50% of couples live together before getting married. “Usually those that accuse us of being judgmental know in there hearts that their position is morally wrong. Often gravely morally wrong.” These conversations, or many of similar moral gravity, show us that the moral fiber of the western world has been eroded by moral relativism over the last several decades. The cause of this decay is the failure of Christendom to recognize and stand for absolute truth. That source of Truth is God himself. “When we reject truth and accept moral relativism we reject God.” Moral Relativism, as a philosophy, is the opinion that moral or ethical statements, which change from person to person, are all equally valid and no one’s opinion of “right and wrong” is better than another. In short, truth shifts from person to person. On its face this would appear to be the most tolerant approach to living in society to. In reality, a truth that shifts from person to person is not truth at all. Truth is constant or it would not be true. “Moral Relativism is the self justification of what is wrong to do what you want, as opposed to what is right.” This attitude toward truth has resulted in those attempting to live a moral life are considered intolerant and punishable by law or loss of lively hood. Example: The case of a Christian baker that refused use their artistic talent to support a same sex wedding. Sometimes a way seems right, but the end of it leads to death! (Proverbs 14:12) Why is Moral Relativism a heresy? Simply stated, because it rejects the Christian understanding and foundation of truth. The Catechism of the Catholic Church in paragraph 2089 defines heresy as: Heresy is the obstinate post-baptismal denial of some truth which must be believed with divine and Catholic faith, or it is likewise an obstinate doubt concerning the same. As Christians, we must live with Charity, seek truth and strive for justice. Because moral relativism has no real basis in truth it works against both charity and justice. Abortion is another prominent example of a morally relativistic look at truth. The person that defends abortion cries out, “Its my body”, “It’s not a human being.” Or “Who am I to tell somebody else what to do…” When confronted with the truth that refutes the above statements they will respond, “I just don’t believe that.” The sad truth is abortion takes a defenseless human life. Over 20% of all unborn children are killed by abortion in the United States of America. Approximately 1.2 million unborn lives are taken each year! Pope Benedict XVI, while still Cardinal Ratzinger, spoke about the dangers of moral relativism on more than one occasion: Cardinal Ratzinger said in his Without Roots, “We are moving toward a dictatorship of relativism which does not recognize anything as for certain and which has as its highest goal one’s own ego and one’s own desires.” … “In recent years I find myself noting how the more relativism becomes the generally accepted way of thinking, the more it tends toward intolerance. Political correctness … seeks to establish the domain of a single way of thinking and speaking. Its relativism creates the illusion that it has reached greater heights than the loftiest philosophical achievements of the past. It presents itself as the only way to think and speak — if, that is, one wishes to stay in fashion. … I think it is vital that we oppose this imposition of a new pseudo-enlightenment, which threatens freedom of thought as well as freedom of religion.” As Cardinal Ratzinger, he also noted in Truth and Tolerance, “relativism … in certain respects has become the real religion of modern man.” Stated many years ago, this is prophetic in many ways. Moral Relativism often uses the false flags of tolerance and discrimination to attack those that carry the flag of truth. Today, it has become more important to walk the line of tolerance as opposed to speaking the truth. Speak the truth publicly or privately against immorality and one could risk losing your livelihood. Look at the case of Brendan Eich, CEO of Mozilla, who was forced to step down because of his stance against same sex marriage. The “religion” of moral relativism will not stop at spreading confusion. It becomes its own form of bigotry against truth and ends in the persecution of those that stand for truth. “Moral relativism builds alliances whose objectives are to destroy what is right and just.” Why has moral relativism taken such a hold of society? The relativists, many of whom claim Christianity as their faith, will scream and overplay discrimination where none exists in order to beat down those faithful to the truth. An example would be a former president’s statement, “They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” This, of course, is a broad, inaccurate generalization which failed in its attempt to paint people of faith as bigoted and yet it is a view perpetuated by relativists to minimize the effect of faithful Christians who try to spread the truth of the Gospel. He said to them, “Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15) Through him we have received the grace of apostleship, to bring about the obedience of faith, for the sake of his name, among all the Gentiles, among whom are you also, who are called to belong to Jesus Christ; to all the beloved of God in Rome, called to be holy. Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.(Romans 1:5-7) How can we turn back this scourge to the faithful and society in general around us? We must remember, first and foremost, our call on this earth is to know, love and serve God so that we can spend eternity with Him in heaven. Pope Benedict XVI, in 1969 when he was Cardinal Ratzinger, is quoted as stating: “The future of the Church, once again as always, will be reshaped by saints, by men, that is, whose minds probe deeper than the slogans of the day, who see more than others see, because their lives embrace a wider reality.” Secondarily, we must know where to seek the truth. In today’s world, in which Moral Relativism shades the truth, clouds the mind and deceives the soul, the Church is the great source of moral truths and has been for 2,000 years. The truth of morals and faith, found in the Gospel and the magisterial teaching of the Church, have not changed since its founding by Jesus Christ. But if I should be delayed, you should know how to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth. (1 Tm 3:15) Finally, we must be the light of truth and love that shines in the darkness. Humanity is drawn toward truth and love because of our heart’s yearning for something greater than ourselves. This longing for truth was placed there by God so that we will seek Him from the depths of our soul. We must seek truth for ourselves, we must seek truth for our children and grandchildren and most of all, we must seek truth for God. God is good!

    Majka Božja objavila se jednom fanatičnom protestantu, Bruni Cornacchiolliju, koji je baš poput svetog Pavla, prije svog obraćenja žarko progonio Kristove učenike. Gospa se ukazala u mjestu Tre Fontane, u blizini mjesta mučeništva svetoga Pavla apostola koji je bio pogubljen odredbom cara Nerona 67.godine. Kako saznajemo po predaji, svjedoci prenose da je Pavlova glava bila odsječena jednim udarcem mača, te se tri puta odbila od zemlje! Na tim su se mjestima pojavili izvori vode. Zato se mjesto i zove Tre Fontane. Tu je ujedno sagrađena i crkva i samostan trapista u kojem se nalazi mramorni stup koji svjedoči gdje je točno bila odsječena glava sv. Pavla. Sigurno se ne radi o slučajnosti kada Majka Božja odabire baš to mjesto da prenese poruku jednom protestantskom vjerniku koji je mrzio Crkvu i Papu.

    Ljubi Crkvu i Papu

    Bezgrešna Marija u svom prvom ukazanju uputila je Cornacchiolliju ove riječi: “Zašto me progoniš? Krajnji je čas da s time prestaneš. Vrati se u zajedništvo Katoličke Crkve.” Majka je Božja u svakom svom ukazanju opetovano ponavljala da nije moguće vjerovati u Krista i istovremeno se boriti protiv Crkve, jer je je Crkva sveto stado Isusovo. Crkva je samo Tijelo Kristovo, Mistični Krist, koji poziva u zajedništvo svakoga bez iznimke. Grešnike posebno, jer ih želi osloboditi grijeha i učiniti ih svetima-zapravo dostojnima neba. Tko se bori protiv Crkve, bori se protiv Isusa i tko odbacuje Crkvu, odbacuje Krista. Gospa je rekla Bruni da Crkva doživljava svakovrsna progonstva, kako izvana, tako i iznutra u onima koji se odriču i napuštaju svećeništvo, izazivaju razne skandale, čine izdaje. Vrlo se često Crkvu krivo interpretira i namjerno se lažno prenosi i iskrivljuje njen Nauk. Dolazi do raznih neshvaćanja i zabluda!
    No, najviše napadaju Crkvu oni koji neprestano žive u grijehu, iako se smatraju članovima Crkve. Takvi se u svom životu ne vode Kristovim naukom već svojom sebičnošću. Svojim lošim primjerom i navještanjem svoje krive i lažne filozofije odvode druge na put vječne propasti. Oni su najveći progonitelji Crkve!
    U svetom stadu Crkve žive opasni vukovi u ovčjoj koži. Majka Božja je pozvala Brunu da ne klone duhom i da se ne predaje, već da snažno ustraje u vjeri, u potpunoj poslušnosti Svetom Ocu i Nauku Crkve. Poslala mu je i svećenika-duhovnika da ga povede putem vjere. dala mu je spoznati kakav je veliki dar sakrament svećeništva! Zahvaljujući svećeniku u sakramentima pomirenja i Euharistije možemo susresti samog Krista koji oprašta grijehe i čini nas subaštinicima svog uskrsnuća, daruje nam Život vječni!
    Kako se Bruno zanosio idejom ubiti i samog Papu, jer ga je smatrao preprekom jedinstva među kršćanima, Gospa mu je jasno dala do znanja da ne postoji nikakva Crkva bez Pape, bez jedinstva s Papom. Pozvala ga je da voli i cijeni Papu, jer je svaki biskup Rima voljom i odlukom samog Krista njegov vidljivi nasljednik na zemlji i nasljednik svetog Petra, Stijene! Ujedno je i pastir cijele Crkve, poglavar svih biskupa. Zahvaljujući toj posebnoj misiji koju je Krist još u Petru i kroz Petra povjerio svakom Papi, on također dobiva i dar nepogrešivosti u trenucima kada naučava o stvarima vjere i morala, te proglašava istine vjere objavljene od Boga. Zato sv.Ambrozije i kaže: “Gdje je Petar, ondje je i Crkva.”

    Ljubi Sveto Pismo i službeni Nauk svete majke Crkve

    Majka Božja ukazala se Bruni držeći Sveto Pismo na svom srcu. Zašto mu se Majka Božja ukazala upravo s Biblijom objasnio je sam Bruno nakon nekoliko godina: “Zato što sam ja obilazio ovo mjesto s protestantskom Biblijom u ruci da u njoj nađem argumente za borbu s dogmama katoličke vjere. Uvijek bih počinjao svoje govore riječima-Marija nije Djevica, Marija nije na nebo uznesena.-Sama Djevica mi je rekla da su te riječi krive! Pokazala mi je upravo Bibliju govoreći da se baš u njoj nalazi sva istina koju o Njoj naučava Crkva Katolička!” Cornacchiola je shvatio da odbacujući istine da je Marija Majka Božja, da je Bezgrešno Začeće, nismo u stanju ući u puninu objave, nismo u stanju shvatiti svu puninu djela spasenja koje je izvršio Njezin Sin, Bog-o-Čovjek, Isus Krist. Majka je Božja držala Sveto pismo na svome srcu, kao svoga Sina. na taj način je dala do znanja svima koja je vrijednost i važnost Svetog pisma-jer Bog nam u svojoj Riječi daje odgovore na sva pitanja i probleme života. Majka nas poziva da svaki dan čitamo Sveto pismo i razmišljamo o pročitanom tekstu.
    Gospa je zatim rekla Bruni:“Ja sam Ona koja je u Presvetom Trojstvu.” To znači da se njen poseban odnos kao čovjeka spram svake Božanske Osobe temelji na činjenici da se u Njezinoj utrobi nastanio Sin Božji. Marija je od svog začeća u potpunom Božjem vlasništvu: savršeno čista, slobodna od ikojeg grijeha i zato može postati Majkom Sina Božjega. Za vrijeme svoga zemaljskog života odlikovala se poniznom i nepoljuljanom vjerom i savršenim vršenjem Božje volje. Svojom vjerom i sjedinjenjem s mukom i trpljenjem Kristovim na Križu postala je Majka svih ljudi u redu milosti. Njezina savršena čistoća izvor je posebne ljepote i nadnaravne moći koja gazi Sotonu.
    Istovremeno je Marija potvrdila Bruni Nauk same Crkve, kada mu je govoreći o Papi i Crkvi, rekla da Objava nije samo u Svetom pismu, već i u tradiciji Crkve-znači u svemu onom što se nalazi u predaji i u doktrinarnom naučavanju Učiteljstva Crkve koje se prenosi s pokoljenja na pokoljenje! Ova je istina zasnovana na obećanju samog Krista Gospodina kada je svojim učenicima rekao da nisu u stanju u tom trenutku sve shvatiti i nositi, no: “kada dođe on, Duh Istine, uvest će vas u svu istinu. “(Iv 16, 13) Ovo imajte na umu, da nijedno proročanstvo nije došlo od ljudskoga htijenja, nego su ljudi govorili od Boga, potaknuti od Duha Svetoga! (usp. 1 Pt 1, 20).
    Zadnju riječ uvijek ima Učiteljstvo Crkve.
    Postoji, dakle, dvostruka dimenzija, dva izvora po kojima imamo pristup Objavi, a to su Sveto pismo i Učiteljstvo Crkve.
    Bruno Cornacchiola prvotno je napustio Crkvu zbog ignorancije, radi vlastitog neznanja-nepoznavanja objavljenih istina. Također i danas iz istih razloga nepoznavanja evanđelja i istina vjere mnogi napuštaju Crkvu i izdaju Isusa, prelazeći u razne sekte, “egzotične religije” ili živeći kao da Boga nema. Zbog te ignorancije (neznanja i lijenosti da upoznaju) ljudi odbacuju najveće blago pripadnosti Kristu prisutnom u Crkvi Katoličkoj. Mnogi nisu ni svjesni kako je nepoznavanje istina katoličke vjere i Svetog pisma veliki grijeh propusta. Papa Pio XII., jednom je prigodom kazao da se: “Crkva… boji samo jednog neprijatelja-ignorancije (ravnodušnosti), tj.nepoznavanja katoličke vjere.”

    Obratite se, ali istinski!

    Marija je u svojim ukazanjima pozvala Brunu na obraćenje! Obraćenje koje znači prepoznati svoje grijehe, odbaciti grijeh i zlo, svim srcem se pokajati za učinjene grijehe, odlučiti čvrsto više ne griješiti, te dati naknadu i zadovoljštinu za počinjeno zlo! Stoga je izuzetno važno redovito pristupati sakramentu pomirenja i što češće sudjelovati u Euharistiji. Euharistija-to je sam Isus koji uprisutnjuje svoje djelo Otkupljenja među nama! Stoga je ona vrhunac i samo srce života Crkve. Bezgrešna je ujedno upozorila na potrebu istinske i ustrajne svakodnevne molitve. Na poseban je način naglasila važnost molitve Krunice. “Zapamti sine-govorila je Bruni-da Krunica nije molitva upućena samo Meni, već Presvetom Trojstvu, u kojem sam prisutna. Upamti: Krunica uči poniznosti, poslušnosti, ljubavi i brani pred opasnostima ovoga svijeta, opasnostima krivog morala, kušnjama protiv vjere, protiv mira, obitelji i cijelog čovječanstva. Sine moj, Krunica je malo Evanđelje, bedem protiv napadaja đavolskih sila. Moli i bit ćeš jak. Ja ću biti s tobom. ovo je Majčino obećanje.”
    Drugom prilikom, Bezgrešna je pozvala:” Molite i činite pokoru!” Prava pokora je uzajamna ljubav i praštanje, dakle život zapovijedi ljubavi prema Bogu i bližnjemu. Svakodnevna uzajamna ljubav, podnošenje i opraštanje vrijede više nego najstroži post i druga odricanja.

    Čudo sunca

    Dana 12. travnja 1980. godine, na obljetnicu Marijina ukazanja, za vrijeme svete Mise održane u spilji u Tre Fontane sabrani su ljudi vidjeli čudo sunca koje je trajalo 30 minuta. Čudo sunca navijestila je Gospa pet mjeseci ranije samom Bruni. Svjedoci su vidjeli kako je sunce stalo iznad špilje te se počelo kretati u znaku slova M koje je bilo okruženo zvijezdama i svjetlošću koja je mijenjala boje. Nakon nekog vremena slovo M zamijenila su slova IHS, a kasnije su se pojavili Isus i Gospa. U Otkrivenju sv.Ivana govori se o Ženi obučenoj u sunce. Ovo je znak da je marija prva od ljudi uznesena na nebo i da sudjeluje u životu Presvetog Trojstva. Objavljujući se ponovno 23.veljače 1982. godine, Majka Božja je upozorila Brunu na skori planirani atentat na papu Ivana Pavla II. Proroštvo se ispunilo 12. svibnja iste godine u Fatimi, kada je služba sigurnosti spriječila ponovni pokušaj atentata na Svetog Oca.
    Čudo sunca ponavljalo se nekoliko puta; 12. travnja 1982., a posljednje se zbilo 12. travnja 2006. godine. Ovako opisuje čudo jedna svjedokinja: “Nakon Mise u svetištu Tre Fontane javila sam se na telefon i čula glas kako pita: `Vidite li sunce?` Izišle smo na balkon i gledale sunce. Kretalo se i mijenjalo boje: zelena, bijela i roza… U trenucima je bilo poput Hostije. Kucalo je kako i svako ljudsko srce. Čudo je trajalo oko 20-tak minuta i donijelo nam je puno radosti i mira.”

    Darivajte dar vjere

    Majka Božja u Tre Fontane nije pozvala svoju djecu samo da što bolje upoznaju i produbljuju svoju vjeru, već da tu vjeru poklanjaju jedni drugima kao dar! Rekla je Bruni: “Obraćaj se svaki dan, ali trudi se također da ovaj dar vjere primi i tvoja obitelj, tvoji suradnici, susjedi i svi ljudi s kojima se susrećeš. Svi ljudi s kojima se susrećeš Isusov su dar tebi! Oni očekuju od tebe da drugima svjedočiš svoju vjeru i nadu. I nemoj misliti samo na sebe. Što više budeš druge darivao vjerom, tim će više ona u tebi rasti.”

    p.M. Piotrovski, TCHr
    (preuzeto iz: Ljubite jedni druge)

    Na periferiji Rima, nalazi se miesto nazvano Tre Fontane, Tri Vrela. Tu je i jedna pećina. Dana 12. travnja 1947. godine, ukaza se Djevica Objave Brunu Cornacchioli, radniku rimskog tramvaja, i njegovoj djeci.
    U blizini mjesta Tri Vrela, nalaze se tri svetišta. Prvo se diže nad mjestom gdje je Apostol naroda položio svoj život za Gospodina. I danas je u crkvi stup na kojem su svetom Pavlu odsjekli glavu; sveta glava se tri puta odbila od obronka, a gdje se dotakla, izbilo je vrelo. Tako je taj kraj i nazvan Tri Vrela. U blizini je i crkva otaca trapista, uz koju je i trapistička opatija. Tu je nekada živio veliki Marijin štovatelj sveti Bernardo; odatle se širila Bernardova nauka i pobožnost prema Djevici. Nedaleko odatle je i crkva, sv. Marija Ljestve u nebo. Tako je nazvaše po jednom viđenju svetog Bernarda. Za vrijeme dok je sveti Bernard jednom služio sv. Misu, ugleda ljestve, koje su se pružale od čistilišta do neba; po ljestvama su se penjale duše oslobođene po sv. Misi, a na vrhu ih je dočekivala Marija i uvodila u Nebo.
    U ovoj posljednjoj crkvi nalazi se prava riznica: u nioj su moći svetih Vojnika, kršćanske legije kojom je zapovijedao sveti Zenon, a koju je car Dioklecijan pogubio, jer se ne htjedoše odreći svete vjere.
    U dvorištu se i danas nalazi stup, s natpisom koji govori o Bernardovoj pobožnosti prema Mariji. Kad god je prolazio pored slike Majke Božje, on je pozdravljao:
    — Zdravo Marijo!
    — Zdravo Bemarde, odgovori mu ona jednom.
    Na mjestu Tri Vrela bila je pećina i šuma eukaliptusa, koju su zasadili oci trapisti, ali pod naletom novog poganskog duha, ovo mjesto je postalo prljavo i griješno.
    Nekada, davno, i pećina u Lurdu bila je sastajalište sotonista, kao što je i ova špilja bila mjesto grijeha. Ali, Ona koja je stala petom na glavu zmije, razbijala je moć Sotone širom svijeta.
    To, simbolično izražava i Njena pojava u ovim pećinama, kao i u novim Babilonima: Parizu, Njujorku…
    Ona, koja je trgala udove mističnog tijela Sotone (kako bi kazao sveti Grgur Veliki), da bi ih posvećivala i ugrađivala u mistično Tijelo Kristovo, izabrala je Bruna Cornacchiola, koji bijaše otpao od Crkve, postao pristalica jedne sekte, i došao upravo u ovu šumu, gdje je bio zasjeo uz jedno stablo, da pripremi govor koji je trebalo za Uskrs održati, upravo protiv — Majke Božje. Nikada neće izreći tog govora. Toga proljetnog dana on će se obratiti. Ova pećina više neće biti mjesto grijeha, već mjesto pobožnosti.
    Nego pogledajmo najprije, tko je taj B. Cornacchiola. Kršten kao katolik, u svojoj ranoj mladosti i iskreno pobožan štovalac Spasiteljeva Presv. Srca i Bl. Dj. Marije, kasnije je skrenuo s pravog puta. Katoličku je vjeru odbacio i postao protestant, a stupio je i u organizaciju, koja ga je obvezivala na ateizam. Napose je fanatički mrzio Presv. Euharistiju, Bl. Dj. Mariju i Sv. Oca Papu. Protiv njih je držao i javne govore.
    U svojoj je kući poskidao sa zidova sve znake vjere, lomio ih i gazio nogama. U vezi s time tukao je i svoju ženu. Papu Pija XII, koji je bio utjelovljena anđeoska blagost, tako je fanatički mrzio, da je na posebnom bodežu napisao riječi: »Smrt Papi!« i samo čekao na zgodnu priliku, u kojoj će ga rinuti Papi u srce.

    A spomenutog dana dogodiše se čude stvari. Najprije djeci, a onda i njemu ukazala se Majka Božja. Bio je kao izvan sebe, kad je, sastavljajući pod stablom svoj naumljeni govor protiv Bl. Dj. Marije, podigao glavu
    i ugledao svoje najmlađe dijete, Ivicu, kako pred spiljom nepomično kleči, drži sklopljene ruke na molitvu i gleda u otvor spilje. Nije to dijete bilo kršteno, a kamoli da bi se znalo moliti!
    Otac se podigne sa zemlje, pođe prema djetetu i još se većma začudio, kad je čuo kako mu dječačić u zanosu ponavlja riječi:
    »Lijepa Gospođo!…« Na očeva pitanja dijete ni da se gane.
    Uzbuđeni otac zovne sada svoju kćerkicu od 10 godina, Izolu. No i ona brzo pada na koljena, sklapa ruke, ožarena je u licu i ponavlja iste riječi kao i mali braco. Otac, sav izvan sebe, zove i svoje treće dijete, Karla, kojemu je tek bilo 6 i po godina, no i ono brzo pada na koljena, sklapa ruke, upravlja pogled prema otvoru spilje i raširenih očiju, a u licu svijetao i sav ushićen, ponavlja iste riječi, kao i mlađi brat i starija sestra: »Lijepa Gospođo!« Otac ne može nikako da se snađe. Napola lud, baca svoje oči sad na djecu, sad prema otvoru spilje. Odjednom gle, kao da ga grabi neka snažna sila. Nečije ruke kao da mu stišču oči. S njih pada nešto kao zastor, a pred njim je sama svjetlost. Spilje kao da više nije bilo, već usred svjetla gleda neobično mili lik nebeske pojave Majke Božje. Gleda ga onako kako to umije samo nebeska Majka. Na njoj je dugo bijelo odijelo, a opasana je crvenim pasom, koji joj na desnoj strani visi do koljena u dva lijepa traka. Preko odijela ima blještav ogrtač, koji joj seže sve do gležanja. Bosim se nogama nalazi na kamenu, usred pećine. Ruke drži na prsima, lijeva je slobodna, a desnom pritišće knjigu sive boje.
    Ta njezina neobična ljubaznost, pomalo ga i zbunjuje. Svjestan je svojih teških grijeha počinjenih protiv nje, a i planova za budućnost. Zar ga nije zatekla u spremanju govora protiv nje? I zbilja njemu je jasno, da je njezin smiješak pun nebeske miline i praštanja, ali i pun boli zbog njegova odmetnuća. I prijekora! Zar ona siva knjiga ne označuje njegovu protestantsku bibliju, kojom se je uvijek služio u svojim napadajima protiv katoličke Crkve? I vidi posve jasno kako ona miče lijevom rukom, i kažiprstom upire na zemlju, gdje leži crno platno, a do njega polupano raspelo.
    — Ja sam ona koja se nalazim u Božanskom Trojstvu. Ja sam Djevica Objave.
    Odmah je shvatio o čemu se radi. Pogotovu, kad mu je odlučnim glasom rekla: *Ti me progoniš!… Sad je dosta!«
    Rekla mu je i razlog, radi kojeg je postigao milost obraćenja. Ima je zabtvaliti pobožnosti 9 prvih petaka, što ih je obavio, dok je još bio dobar.
    — Božja zakletva jeste i ostaje nepromjenjiva, spasilo te devet petaka Presvetog Srca, koje si obavio. Njegove su mu zablude i grijesi bili posve jasni. U srcu osjeća radi njih veliku bol. »Šta mu je raditi?!« pita sam sebe. Izgledao je kao teški bolesnik, koji se pomalo oporavlja. I tri mjeseca kasnije imao je još uvijek taj bolni izgled. Majci Božjoj je bilo sve predobro poznato, i ona mu ljubezno odgovara: »Vrati se u sveto stado, u nebeski dvor na zemlji!« Dakle vratiti mu se treba u krilo katoličke Crkve, koja je svakome, koji živi po njezinoj nauci, Nebo na zemlji. Poučila ga je i o zabludama, što ih je svojim govorima protiv Nje sijao: »Moje tijelo nije istrunulo, niti je moglo trunuti! Moj Sin i anđeli došli su da me uzmu na dan moga preminuća!«
    Preporučuje mu molitvu, a posebno njoj osobito milu — krunicu. Jer je u molitvi silna moć, po njoj će dobiti sve milosti: »Molitva je zlatna strelica, što izlazi iz usta vjernika i stiže do Božjeg Srca!«
    Potiče ga, neka izbjegava grijehe, koji su tako mrski Bogu i njoj.
    Posebno ga upozoruje na neke vrste duševnih bijednika: na bezbožnike, raskolnike, psovače, bludnike i lakomce. Stavlja mu na srce, da se mnogo moli i druge potiče na molitvu za njihovo obraćenje i za jedinstvo Crkve.
    Njemu pak samom odredila je dva svećenika, koji će ga izmiriti s Bogom i povratiti pravoj Crkvi, Nije mu rekla njihova imena, nego način kako će ih naći: »Svećenik, koji te pozdravi riječima: »Zdravo Marijo, sine!« uputit će te svećeniku, koji će te izmiriti s Bogom. A svećenik, koji će ti reći, da ga nešto vuče k tebi, odvest će te Sv. Ocu, kome ćeš odnijeti moju poruku i zamoliti ga za oproštenje zbog otpada od vjere i svetogrdne borbe, što si je vodio protiv njemu.«
    Prorekla mu je i protivštine, koje ga čekaju, no neka se ne boji, jer će mu ona majčinski priskočiti u pomoć, kad ga svi prezru i napuste. »Budi razborit prema svima!« — riječi su, kojima ga je potaknula na opreznost.
    Nasmiješivši se ljupko ocu i djeci, povuče se tri koraka natrag, okrene se i nestade je, a za sobom je ostavila krasan miris. Kad se je okrenula, i djeci i ocu zasja pred očima njezin sjajni zeleni ogrtač.
    Prvi se od zanosa trgne Karlo, skoči i poleti k zidu pećine, uhvati se rukama za zid i vikne: »Lijepa Gospođo!… Zeleni ogrtač!…« Sad sve troje djece navali na oca: »Tko je bio ta Lijepa Gospođa? … Šta ti je rekla? …« »Gospa«, odgovori blijedi otac. »Poslije ću vam sve pripovijedati!« On je odmah u polumraku špilje u svoju bilježnicu unio sve, što mu je Bl. Dj. Marija rekla. Prije nego će otići, napiše izvana na spilji: »U ovoj pećini, 12. travnja 1947. godine, Djevica Objave ukazala se protestantu Bruni Cornacchioli.« Ime »Djevica Objave« upotrijebio je jer tako mu se Bl. Dj. Marija predstavila. Ukazanje je trajalo od 16. do 10. m do 17. s. 30 m.
    S dubokim dojmovima u duši silazili su obraćeni otac i sretna djeca niz humak i najprije se, na želju oca, navratiše u crkvu, posvećenu Bl. Dj. Mariji, koja je pripadala Oo. Trapistima, duhovnim sinovima jednog od najnježnijih štovatelja i propovijednika Bl. Dj. Marije, naučitelja sv. Crkve — sv. Bernarda.
    Tu se ocu iza toliko godina opet otvore usta na molitvu, a djeci prvi put u životu. Glasom, koji djeca nisu dotle još nikada čula, reče im: »Uvijek sam vam govorio, da Isus nije …« i upre rukom prema svetohraništu. »Ne! On se nalazi ondje unutra, u onoj kućici! Molite mu se!« A onda sam uroni u molitvu kajanja i klanjanja, zahvale i odluke … Duša mu je bila puna i izlijevao ju je pred Gospodinom Isusom, kojega je opet našao i uzljubio svim žarom srca.
    Kad su došli kući, žena opazi na mužu neku čudnu promjenu. Vrlo ju je iznenadio onaj ugodni miris, što su ga svojim povratkom unijeli u kuću. Nije ih samo gledala upitnim pogledom, već je i ustima “formirala pitanje. Otac je skoro plačnim glasom poslao djecu u krevet, a onda se ženi obratio riječima: »Vidjeli smo Gospu! … Molim te za oproštenje, što sam te mučio, Jolando! … Znaš li moliti krunicu? …«
    »Ne sjećam se dobro!« — odgovara ganutim glasom žena, a onda se oba bace na koljena, da mole krunicu onako, kako su znali… Prve »zlatne strelice« u stanu obraćene obitelji!
    I na našem obraćeniku opazilo se ono, što se stalno ponavlja u povijesti Marijinih objava širom svijeta: »Koji je jedanput vide, stalno čeznu da je i opet ugledaju. Naš obraćenik Bruno ne bi gledao ni na umor ni na kasno doba, nego bi hrlio k pećini kod Tri Fontane, kadgod bi navečer iza službe uhvatio nešto slobodnog vremena. Tu bi uzeo u ruke krunicu, bacio se na koljena i molio, molio …
    Srce mu je bilo puno i nije bio u neprilici, što da moli. Molio bi nebesku Majku, da mu se još više otkrije, molio bi za zalutalu braću, za jedinstvo Crkve, da se što prije susretne sa svećenicima, koji će ga vratiti u ovčinjak Kristov, što ga je bio ostavio, i odvesti Sv. Ocu Papi…
    Potpuna mira još nije bio našao. Svojim očima bi lovio svakog svećenika, što bi ga bilo gdje susreo, i stalno bi se pitao: »Nije li to onaj?«
    Konačno je prvoga ipak našao. Ujutro, 28. travnja, uđe u crkvu Svih Svetih (crkva Oo. glasovitoga Don Oriona na Via Appia Nouova) i tu se postavi uza zid sakristije. Bio je sav snužden. Neki mladi svećenik jako se žuri. On ga ipak zaustavlja: »Oprostite, oče. želio bih vam reći jednu riječ!« »Zdravo Marijo. sine! Recite hitno! Žuri mi se! Moram pričestiti vjernike, a onda ponijeti sv. Pričest bolesniku!« »Napokon eto Marijina znaka. To je onaj prvi!« I Bruno brzo izasu: »Ja sam protestant, a želio bih postati katolikom!« »A tako! Dobro! Ja ću vas odvesti svećeniku, koji će to učiniti.« I odvede ga drugom svećeniku, koji ga sasluša, pozove njega i ženu mu na pouku, i bi određen 7. svibnja za obred primanja njih dvoje natrag u Crkvu. Uoči toga dana požuri Bruno k pećini da moli za pomoć Majke nebeske. Spusti se na koljena, uze krunicu i uroni u molitvu … I gle, spilja zasja jakim svjetlom, i on ponovo ugleda Majku Božju. Gledala ga je milim materinskim pogledom, a onda se bez riječi udalji.
    Sutradan se roditelji sretne djece odreku pred svećenikom svojih zabluda i budu vraćeni u krilo Katoličke Crkve, a 17. svibnja krstiše još nekršteno najmlađe dijete Ivicu. Brunina je sreća postigla svoj vrhunac. Pronašao je i drugog svećenika, koji će ga po Marijinoj odredbi odvesti Sv. Ocu Papi. Bruno je često ulazio u crkvu Svih Svetih, a neki bi ga svećenik tu uvijek čudno gledao. I jednoga dana upadne taj svećenik u Brunin stan. Čitav se je stan te siromašne obitelji sastojao od samo jedne sobe. I taj svećenik upravlja Bruni riječi: »Cornacchiola, moram ti govoriti… Ne znam … Osjećam kako me k tebi nešto vuče«.
    Točno, kako mu je prorekla Bl. Dj. Marija. Bruno mu otkrije svoju tajnu i sprijateljiše se.

    Po želji tog svećenika odoše njih dvojica 23. svibnja do Tre Fontane. U spilji kleknu i mole radosnu krunicu. Kod treće Zdravomarije druge desetke Bruno zašuti. Svećenik ga pogleda i opazi, da je u licu posve blijed, zanesen i čuje ga kako, šapčući, ponavlja riječi: »Kako je lijepa! …« A onda se okrene svećeniku i rekne mu: »Opet je došla! …« Svećenik nije vidio ništa, ali je osjetio ljupke mirise i napuni se tolikom svetom radošću, da je nekom mladiću, koji je baš toga časa banuo u Šumu, viknuo: »Gospa!… Ukazala se Gospa u pećini!« Tako sazna Rim, a brzo i ostali svijet za Marijino ukazivanje kod Tre Fontane. Ljudi su hrlili k mjestu Gospina ukazivanja, kajali se za svoje grijehe, molili se i vraćali boiji svojim domovima. Kako je Gospa odmah prigodom svog prvog ukazanja rekla tramvajskom namješteniku Bruni, da će zemlju u pećini očistiti i posvetiti, pa će odsele služiti kao lijek bolesnima na duši i na tijelu, tj. postati čudotvorna i poslužiti kao vrhunaravno sredstvo za obraćanje grješnika i ozdravljivanje bolesnika, to bi posjetnici spilje na povratku kući uvijek ponijeli sa sobom i štogod te zemlje. Pećina je puna ploča zahvalnica za primljene milosti. Prve su godine mnogi osjećali i neobične mirise, koji bi dolaziii iz spilje i širili se daleko, posebno prigodom nekih svetkovina.
    Ali su ljudi salijetali i Brunu Cornacchiolu, koji je svima rado govorio o »Djevici Objave« i poticao ih na posjećivanje svetoga mjesta, a bio i sretan, što je baš u to vrijeme kao tramvajski namještenik bio zaposlen na liniji Crkva sv. Pavla – Tre Fontane. Njegove misli i srce bih su stalno na mjestu svoje velike sreće. Ali ga duša nije samo vukla k svetoj spilji, već je tražio i mjesta svojega prijašnjeg djelovanja, ne bi li pružio zadovoljštinu za sve ono zlo, što ga je bio nanio Bogu, Mariji i Crkvi, a one, s kojima je radio na zavađanju duša ili ih je sam zaveo, vratio na pravi put. U tom je poslu bio pripavan i na trpljenje.
    Tako je znao od svojih starih drugova biti obasut pogrdama, pa i fizičkim napadajima, ali bi svoj apostolat i dalje mirno nastavljao. Upotrebijavao bi uvijek lijepe riieči, a osobito se je puno molio i prikazivao žrtve, da ljude predobije za Boga i život vjere. Svete pričesti u prve petke za obraćenje grješnika započeo je odmah iza svog povratka u Crkvu, a krunicu je imao uvijek uza se.
    30. svibnja, uza sav umor, požuri i opet do mjesta svoje sreće. Klekne, izvadi krunicu i moli. Pećina i opet zasja velikim sjajem. Pred njim je i opet nebeska Majka i govori mu: »Idi k mojim kćerima, pobožnim Učiteljicama Filipovkama, i reci im, neka se mnogo mole za nevjernike i radi nevjere svoga kraja!« I Bruno požuri, da dobrim redovnicama odnese Marijinu poruku.
    Ovaj prikaz ukazanja Majke Božje, »Djevice Objave« kod Tre Fontane, u okolici Rima, svršavamo riječima samoga sretnog Brune Cornacchiole, kako ih donosi pri koncu svoje knjige, pod naslovom: »Cornacchiola priznaje« — »Plačući predao sam bodež«, njemački pisac P. Leo Marija Ort:
    »Draga braćo i sestre! Nosio sam još i drugu muku u svom srcu, koju hoću da vam sad ispripovjedim, jer tko zna, kad ćemo se opet vidjeti. U svom sam srcu nosio brigu za bodež, s kojim sam se zakleo da ću ubiti Papu. Ispovjednik mi je rekao:
    »Nemoj o tome nikome ništa reći. Čekaj na zgodu, u kojoj ćeš ga moći osobno predati u ruke Sv. Ocu.«
    Čekao sam. I došao je 9. prosinac 1949. Sv. Otac Papa, koga je propaganda bezbožaca, slobodnih zidara i krivovjeraca strašno napadala, pozvao je grupu radnika k sebi, da s njima moli u svojoj privatnoj kapeli krunicu. Među tim radnicima nalazio sam se i ja. Sv. Otac nije to znao. Ja sam ponio bodež i bibliju, što sam je tumačio krivo, po svojoj samovolji. Na njoj su bile zabiljene riječi: »To će biti smrt katol. Crkvi s Papom na čelu.«
    Obadvoje htjedoh predati sv. Ocu!
    Iza svršetka krunice okrene se Sv. Otac nama. Zbilja: »Pastor angelicus!« (= Anđeoski Papa — prema glasovitom proročanstvu Malahijinu). U bijelo odjeven, s raskriljenim rukama, kao Anđeo, koji je raširio krila da poleti. On reče:
    »Jedan od vas želi sa mnom govoriti!«
    Ja kleknem i viknem: »Svetosti, to sam ja!«
    Svi radnici učiniše mjesto. Sv. Otac dođe do mene, sagne se prema meni, stavi svoju ruku na moje rame, približi svoj obraz mojemu i upita:
    »Šta je, moj sinko!«
    »Tu je, Svetosti, protestantska biblija, kojn sam krivo tumačio i čime sam upropastio mnoge duše.«
    Plačnći predadoh i bodež, na kojemu napisah: »Smrt Papi!«
    »Molim za oproštenje, što sam se usudio to i pomisliti. Svetosti, imao sam u planu ubiti Vas ovim bodežom!…«
    Sveti Otac uze te predmete, pogleda me, nasmiješi se i reče:
    »Dragi sinko! Time ne bi bio ništa drugo učinio, nego bi Crkvi darovao jednoga mučenika i jednoga papu više, a Kristu pobjedu, pobjedu ljubavi!«
    »Da, ali ja molim još jednom za oproštenje!«
    »Sinko!« reče Sv. Otac, »najbolje je oproštenje pokajanje!«
    »Svetosti! Sutra putujem u bezbožnu Emiliju. Tamošnji su me biskupi pozvali da obavim jedno kružno putovanje u svrhu protupropagande. Imao bih ondje govoriti o Božjem Milosrđu, što me je zapalo posredstvom Presv. Djevice.«
    »Dobro, dobro, ja sam zadovoljan. Pođi s mojim blagoslovom!«
    I on mi dade svoj blagoslov. Održao sam 40 konferencija, pa ipak nisam umio govoriti. Ali mi je Gospodin uvijek pomogao. Mogli smo tom zgodom ustanoviti više od 600 prekida s bezboštvom.
    Nastojat ću predobiti i druge!
    Draga braćo i sestre! Oproštenje, što ga zamolih od Gospođina, primio sam. I Sveti Otac mi je oprostio. Molio sam svoju suprugu da mi oprosti, pa mi je i ona oprostila. A sada molim i Vas, da mi oprostite. Jer svi mi zajedno činimo tajanstveno tijelo Kristovo. Zlo, što sam ga počinio u Rimu, nanio sam i Vama u Abruzzima i u cijelom svijetu. Mi tvorimo jedno tijelo, i, ako ja ranim jednu dušu, ranjavam cijelo tajanstveno Tijelo Kristovo. Stoga molim i Vas za oproštenje zbog svega zla, što sam ga učinio. Vi vidite, draga braćo i sestre, kakvo zlo vlada u svijetu. Nema nikakva mira više u kući. Djeca su protiv roditelja, a roditelji se više ne brinu za djecu. Obitelji se raspadaju, pa dolazi do bračnih rastava, dolazi do grijeha. Dolazi do raznih zala. Postoje i opasna oružja.
    Ta se oružja zovu atomske bombe. Mi ne treba da se bojimo.
    I mi imamo puno oružja, i s njim želimo upoznati one, koji se nazivaju našim neprijateljima:
    Oružje naše vjere,
    Oružje našeg ufanja,
    Oružje naše ljubavi.
    Oružje istine!
    Upitajmo te ljude. da li vjerujui da li ljube, da li se drže ovih triju bijelih točaka:
    Prva bijela točka to je Prestveta Euharistija;
    Druga bijela točka to je Bezgrješno začeće;
    Treća bijela točka to je Papa!
    Slijedeće tri bijele točke: vjera, ufanje i ljubav stupovi su istine. Te tri točke moraju biti jedinstvene, međusobno povezane, jake i pune zanosa. Ako te jedinstvenosti i povezanosti nema, nema ni istine.
    Protestanti vele: »Nema Euharistije, nema Bezgrješne, nema Pape!« Bezbožnici govore: »Nema Pape! I mi bezbožnici stupamo u euharistijskim procesijama, u procesijama u čast Majci Božjoj, ali Papu treba ubiti!« Vidite, manjka jedna od bijelih točaka!
    Ako te tri bijele točke nisu sjedinjene, ljudi nemaju istine!
    Te tri bijele točke ima jedino rimokatatolička, apostolska Crkva.
    To su naša oružja!
    Nasuprot atomskim bombama ovog svijeta nudimo mi svoja još moćnija oružja. Mi im dajemo ime i zovemo ih:
    Atomska bomba molitve,
    Atomska bomba klanjanja,
    Atomska bomba ljubavi k bližnjemu,
    Atomska bomba ljubavi Presv. Djevice prema nama, sveta KRUNICA!
    Držimo je u svojim rukama! Molimo krunicu, ona je štit protiv svakom krivovjerju! Štit, koji nam donosi pobjedu, jer se prihvaćamo mača, koji je Krist, naš Gospodin — put, istina i život« (Iv 14,6).
    Te tri točke i međusobna ljubav jesu oružja, pomoću kojih ćemo mi sigurno pobijediti i postići, da bude na zemlji »jedno stado i jedan pastir« (Iv 10, 16).
    Hvaljen Isus Krist!
    Hvaljen Isus i Marija!«
    Uskoro Rim sazna za ukazanje Marijino kod Tri Vrela. Narod pohrli u velikoj radoznalosti; mnogi u pobožnosti kleknuše. Imamo pred sobom magazin Oggi od 10. lipnja 1947. Na naslovnoj strani je grupa hodočasnika, djece i odraslih, koji u molitvi kleče pred pećinom. Špilja na mjestu Tri Vrela postat će još jedno mjesto molitve. Oggi će poslije dvadeset i pet godina poslati svog novinara da vidi i opiše plodove tog ukazanja. U Rimu je već 1950. godine, izašla knjiga na našem jeziku, Poruke s Neba, od Viteza Budislava; iz nje smo uzeli neke podatke o ukazanjima kod Tri Vrela.
    Marijina poruka odnosila se na cijeli svijet i Bruno Cornacchiola postat će Marijin apostol, propovjednik obraćenja i jedinstva.
    U Rim, Sveti grad, prodirao je poganski duh u tim poslijeratnim godinama; kao u nekoj neshvatljivoj i dijaboličkoj uroti sve će se učiniti da sveti grad postane grad zemaljskih zadovoljstava; velika propaganda trebalo je da ga učini gradom »slatkog života«, — »dolce vita«. U toj duhovnoj borbi koja se vodi posvuda, Marija silazi na zemlju, u pećinu grijeha, i ukazuje se velikom neprijatelju Crkve, da bi od špilje učinila mjesto hodočašća, od Bruna Cornacchiola napravila apostola, i da bi se u Rimu borila protiv sotonskih sila…

    Prvo čitanje:Dj 1, 1-11

    Bî uzdignut njima naočigled.

    Početak Djela apostolskih

    Prvu sam knjigu, Teofile, sastavio o svemu što je Isus činio i učio do dana kad je uznesen pošto je dao upute apostolima koje je izabrao po Duhu Svetome. Njima je poslije svoje muke mnogim dokazima pokazao da je živ, četrdeset im se dana ukazivao i govorio o kraljevstvu Božjem. I dok je jednom s njima blagovao, zapovjedi im da ne napuštaju Jeruzalema, nego neka čekaju obećanje Očevo »koje čuste od mene: Ivan je krstio vodom, a vi ćete naskoro nakon ovih dana biti kršteni Duhom Svetim«.

    Nato ga sabrani upitaše: »Gospodine, hoćeš li u ovo vrijeme Izraelu opet uspostaviti kraljevstvo?« On im odgovori: »Nije vaše znati vremena i zgode koje je Otac podredio svojoj vlasti. Nego primit ćete snagu Duha Svetoga koji će sići na vas i bit ćete mi svjedoci u Jeruzalemu, po svoj Judeji i Samariji i sve do kraja zemlje.«

    Kada to reče, bî uzdignut njima naočigled i oblak ga ote njihovim očima. I dok su netremice gledali kako on odlazi na nebo, gle, dva čovjeka stadoše kraj njih u bijeloj odjeći i rekoše im: »Galilejci, što stojite i gledate u nebo? Ovaj Isus koji je od vas uznesen na nebo isto će tako doći kao što ste vidjeli da odlazi na nebo.«

    Riječ Gospodnja.

    Otpjevni psalam:Ps 47, 2-3.6-9

    Pripjev:

    Uzlazi Bog uz klicanje, Gospodin uza zvuke trublje!

    Narodi svi, plješćite rukama,
    kličite Bogu glasom radosnim.
    Jer Gospodin je to – svevišnji, strašan,
    kralj velik nad zemljom svom.
    Uzlazi Bog uz klicanje,
    Gospodin uza zvuke trublje.
    Pjevajte Bogu, pjevajte,
    pjevajte kralju našemu, pjevajte!
    Jer on je kralj nad zemljom svom,
    pjevajte Bogu, pjevači vrsni!
    Bog kraljuje nad narodima,
    stoluje Bog na svetom prijestolju.

    Čitanje Poslanice svetoga Pavla apostola Efežanima
    Braćo:
    Zaklinjem vas ja, sužanj u Gospodinu: sa svojom poniznošću i blagošću, sa strpljivošću živite dostojno poziva kojim ste pozvani! Podnosite jedni druge u ljubavi; trudite se sačuvati jedinstvo Duha svezom mira! Jedno tijelo i jedan Duh – kao što ste i pozvani na jednu nadu svoj poziva! Jedan Gospodin! Jedna vjera! Jedan krst! Jedan Bog i Otac sviju, nad svima i po svima i u svima!
    A svakomu je od nas dana milost po mjeri dara Kristova.
    Zato veli: »Na visinu uzađe vodeći sužnje, dade dare ljudima.« Ono »uzađe« – što drugo znači doli to da i siđe u donje krajeve, na zemlju? Koji siđe, isti je onaj koji i uzađe ponad svih nebesa da sve ispuni.
    On i »dade« jedne za apostole, druge za proroke, jedne opet za evanđeliste, a druge za pastire i učitelje da opremi svete za djelo služenja, za izgrađivanje Tijela Kristova dok svi ne prispijemo do jedinstva vjere i spoznaje Sina Božjega, do čovjeka savršena, do mjere uzrasta punine Kristove.
    Riječ Gospodnja.
    Evanđelje:Mt 28,16-20

    Dana mi je sva vlast na nebu i na zemlji.

    Svršetak svetog Evanđelja po Mateju

    U ono vrijeme: Jedanaestorica pođoše u Galileju na goru kamo im je naredio Isus. Kad ga ugledaše, padoše ničice preda nj. A neki posumnjaše. Isus im pristupi i prozbori: »Dana mi je sva vlast na nebu i na zemlji! Pođite dakle i učinite mojim učenicima sve narode krsteći ih u ime Oca i Sina i Duha Svetoga i učeći ih čuvati sve što sam vam zapovjedio! I evo, ja sam s vama u sve dane – do svršetka svijeta.«

    Molitve za čistoću
    Gospodine Isuse, tvoj je pogled izraz tvoje milosrdne ljubavi. Nauči me promatrati braću i sestre svojim pogledom.

    Oslobodi me od pogleda koji ubija moje dostojanstvo i dostojanstvo mojih bližnjih.

    Oslobodi me i očuvaj od požude očiju, znatiželjnog i pokvarenog gledanja. Ne dopusti da mojim pogledom u moje srce uđe razarajući duh bludnosti i svako drugo zlo. Milosrdni Isuse, po zagovoru prečistog Srca Marijina, daj mi čisto srce i čist pogled, da u svojim bližnjima uvijek gledam tebe. Amen.

    Molitva sv. Josipu za čistoću

    Sveti Josipe, čuvaru djevičanskih duša, tvojoj su vjernoj skrbi bili povjereni sama nevinost, Isus Krist i Djevica Marija: radi toga dvostrukoga predragog zaloga – Isusa i Marije – molim te da me očuvaš od svake nečistoće da neokaljane duše, čista srca i čestitih nakana uvijek vjerno služim Isusu i Mariji. Čuvaj me od svake grješne misli, pogleda, želje i djela. Daj da u mojoj duši uvijek cvjeta bijeli ljiljan čistoće. Amen.

    Molitva za dar čistoće

    Gospodine, Isuse Kriste, ti si nazvao blagoslovljenima one koji su čista srca i obećao si im da će Boga gledati. Često te gubim iz vida, a u srcu se nađu egoizam, ljubomora i druge zle sklonosti. Zbog pomanjkanja skromnosti i prevelike znatiželje, moje misli i osjećaje ispuni nesigurnost i nemir. Tada gubim radost vjere i svjetlo savjesti. Teško mi je moliti, srce mi je prazno i slabi mi ljubav prema bližnjima. Ipak, Gospodine, želim nov i vjerodostojan život, želim nutarnji mir. Zato molim tvoju predragocjenu krv da me očisti. Želim te opet primiti čistim srcem i dijeliti tvoju ljubav sa svim ljudima. Neka me tvoje rane podsjećaju kako me neizmjerno voliš. Neka me tvoja krv jača u kušnjama i opasnostima. Neka me tvoj anđeo izbavi iz grješne prigode.

    Duše Sveti, daj mi svoju mudrost da razlikujem pravu ljubav prema drugima od traženja samoga sebe, da znam u iskrenosti davati i primati, spajati jednostavnost i blizinu s ljudima.

    Marijo, Majko divne ljubavi, želim kao i ti uvijek nositi u srcu Isusa. Neka me tvoja poniznost uči nježnosti i pouzdanju da postanem čisti kalež krvi tvoga Sina. Amen.

  5. In the timeless Broadway classic “Les Miserables,” character Fantine wraps up Victor Hugo’s epic saga with one golden line: “To love another person is to see the face of God.” Hugo’s words greatly echo Saint Pope John Paul II’s extremely popular lecture series called the “Theology of the Body,” a title which literally translates to “the study of God in the body.” In these 129 General Audience talks, Saint Pope John Paul II describes how the human person is made in the image and likeness of God and how God selflessly loves every person for his or her own intrinsic good, and not just for Himself!

    St. Pope John Paul II would agree with Victor Hugo: truly loving another person entails seeing God’s image and likeness in him or her. St. Pope John Paul II would even take it a step further and say that true love also entails being able to see God in your own body and soul. Chastity is rooted in this vision of love: with purity of heart, seeing God’s very image in others and in self. In fact, in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the simplest definition of “chastity” is “to love as God loves.” And what is “love”? Again according to the Catechism, love is simply “willing the good of the other.” Living a chaste life, then, equals “willing the good” of yourself and others as God would will it. Chastity equals no easy task!

    Yet living a chaste life is an exhilarating challenge and it surely has its rewards. When you commit yourself to chastity, an abundance of graces will flood into your life. Listed below are just ten positive things that will happen if you decide to begin on this journey:

    1. Your confidence boosts.
    Chastity
    Christ bestows on you all of the necessary graces to overcome temptations to sexual sin. When you learn to use your willpower to relinquish your inner battle against sexual temptation into the hands of Christ, your confidence soars. Why? Because Christ is King, and He is always victorious. When you falter, He always turns you back from darkness into light, especially via the Sacrament of Confession. Through Christ, you have the power to channel your sexual drive into a conduit of grace rather than sin. What freedom! It will likely begin to feel easier to conquer other temptations, bad habits, and addictions in your life- and set positive new life goals!- as well

    2. You will be able to eat, exercise, and sleep better. And pay better attention at Mass.
    Chastity
    Once you commit to keeping your body chaste, you kindle a newfound respect for your body. You begin to better understand how your body reflects Christ to the world much in the same way that a monstrance displays the Eucharist to the world. You will become energized to take better care of your body, and may find yourself eating healthier food, sticking to a workout regime better, and being more disciplined about sleeping well. Feeling better about your body, you’ll start to feel better about your soul, and you’ll likely be able to be more engaged at Mass and, overall, a more Eucharistic person and disciple to the world!

    3. Your prayer life grows abundantly.
    Chastity
    As you allow the Holy Spirit to purify your body, He will also powerfully begin to purify your soul on an even deeper level. Your new level of honesty with God, such as during times of sexual temptation, allows you to be more open to the Holy Spirit and to His promptings in your heart to do his will, to pray more, and to draw closer to Him. You will find yourself increasingly speaking to the LORD throughout the day, in times of struggle, joy, and everything in between. In fact, you’ll probably slowly grow closer to Our Blessed Mother, Queen of Purity, as well as a whole throng of saints who you may learn about and will just know are also cheering you on!

    4. You begin to more deeply understand the mysterious Trinitarian nature of God and how it relates to marriage!
    Chastity
    When we look to the Trinity, we see how God the Father and God the Son love each other so intensely that God the Holy Spirit exists as an incarnation of their love. As Catholics, we believe that a man and a woman in Holy Matrimony are meant to mirror the Trinity, too: with their free, total, faithful, and fruitful spousal love, a child may come to exist as an incarnation of their love. What beauty in this purpose of human sexuality! With this new association of God and marriage/sex, you will begin to see how bodies and human sexuality were made for the sacred and to love as God loves.

    5. You start to see your significant other with God’s eyes.
    Chastity
    A certain saying goes: “People love things and use people, when they should love people and use things.” Along the lines of “loving versus using,” you will begin to see your beloved as someone who is a son or daughter of God– someone who possesses an inherent dignity with which you do not want to meddle and which is deserving of genuine love. When you commit to chastity, you will begin to respect your significant other, boyfriend/girlfriend/fiance/fiancee or spouse, on a profoundly deeper level. It’s not just how she or he can make you feel, but how you can help him or her to become a person of virtue and ultimately, a saint.

    6. You start to see yourself with God’s eyes.
    Chastity
    Along the lines of “loving versus using,” you also will begin to see YOURSELF as a son or daughter of God– someone who possesses an inherent dignity with which you do not want to meddle and which is deserving of genuine love. You will begin to respect YOURSELF on a profoundly deeper level. It’s not just how your significant other (or pornography, masturbation, dwelling on impure thoughts, etc.) can make you feel, but how you can help YOURSELF to become a person of virtue and ultimately, a saint.

    7. You start to see EVERYONE with God’s eyes!
    Chastity
    Once you start practicing the whole “chastity is loving as God loves” habit, it’s hard not to see others with clear eyes. Not just people you are attracted to, but literally every person! You will gain a sense of wonder and awe for God’s creation that you may have never possessed. You will see people as people to be loved purely, not with sinful purposes in mind, nor merely for their “uses” that they might bring to you or to the world. God loves them for who they are, because they are inherently worth being loved. You will find yourself admiring others’ positive aspects or attractive features more easily– and getting annoyed by or judging others’ negative or unattractive aspects less easily (a.k.a. being more merciful like Our LORD!).

    8. You less easily fall into unhealthy anger and dark moods.
    Chastity
    When you commit to living a chaste life, you will slowly break free from the bonds of sexual sin and experience what the noble use of your free will tastes like (hint: it tastes very liberating!). You will experience genuine freedom, and the soul that is free is the soul that is at peace. And when the soul is at peace, it is far more difficult to get carried away by one’s temper and to be tempted into unhealthy anger, dark moods, and even violence. It is so easy to fall into these spiritual traps when we live unchaste lives.

    9. You more strongly understand how human sexuality is actually a big, beautiful, highly spiritual deal– not “animalistic” at all!
    Chastity
    When you commit your life to chastity, you slowly see how every man and woman is called to live out the spousal meaning of his or her body, whether through the vocation of single, married, or religious life. You will begin to understand better how the ultimate wedding feast is that between Christ the groom and His bride the Church– and you will become even more inspired and determined to listen to God’s vocational call for your own life. Nothing is more enthralling than living life intentionally and with a sacred sense of meaning and purpose.

    10. Joy. Pure and utter joy.
    Chastity
    When you find purpose in your body and your soul, and grow closer to God, and start to feel better, live better, and love better– the biggest reward of all, after freedom and peace, is JOY. Pure joy! Utter joy! Joy in knowing that you are a beloved son or daughter of God, and that God, in His love, thought you up before the world even existed. Joy in knowing that you are meant to set the world on fire with God’s love in your own unique vocation and in your own unique way. When you live out the spousal meaning of your body according to God’s Holy Will, it is impossible not to radiate joy to all the world. If you’re called to marriage, that radiant joy may actually attract your future spouse! Though the truth is, joy is both a gift and a necessity to live out one’s vocational calling – marriage or otherwise – to the fullest.

    11 Tips for Living Chastity When You’re in a Serious Relationship

    Chastity is not only about waiting until we are married before we have sex. It is a virtue that we must foster all of our life and even enrich our marriage.

  6. 1) The Fatima Prayer (Decade Prayer)
    O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those most in need of Thy mercy. Amen.

    Mary told the children that people should add this prayer to the end of each decade of the Rosary.

    2) The Pardon Prayer
    My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love Thee. I beg pardon for all those that do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love Thee. Amen.

    This prayer was given to the children by the Angel of Peace that visited them in 1916, the year before Mary appeared to them.

    3) The Angel’s Prayer
    O Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary I beg the conversion of poor sinners. Amen.

    DNEVNE PROPOVIJEDI
    Duh istine svjedočit će za me.

    Dragi čitatelji i pobožnici Božje riječi, evo nastavljamo u novom tjednu, šestom uskrsnom, pratiti Pavla i Barnabu na njihovim misijskim putovanjima. Zasigurno će se za sva vremena makedonski grad Filipi, u kojem se nalaze misionari, spominjati kao prva evropska postaja velikog apostola Pavla. Znamo da će kasnije toj kršćanskoj zajednici Pavao napisati svoju najsrdačniju poslanicu iz koje se i sada osjeća koliko je tokom života bio s njima povezan. Stanovnici su Filipa bili miješana porijekla. Među Pavlovim slušateljima i slušateljicama, kad je on prve subote po svojem dolasku, u pomanjkanju mjesne sinagoge, govorio kod rijeke izvan gradskih vrata, našla se Lidija, prva poznata obraćenica na evropskom tlu. Luka, pisac Djela apostolskih, upoznaje nas da je Lidija bila razborita žena koja je sve što je činila dobro promislila. Ali sada se nije kolebala. Izvanredno brzo se odlučila da se pokrsti. Hrabra je Lidija svojim odlučnim nastupom i snažnim glasom sposobne domaćice brzo dovela svu svoju služinčad na krštenje. Uz to je Pavla i njegove drugove pozvala da stanuju u njezinoj kući koja je tako postala prva kršćanska crkva u Evropi. Vidi se da je Lidija bila emancipirana žena, vrlo sposobna trgovka, no prava Pavlova apostolska duša, ne gleda toliko na vanjštinu i ne sudi po njoj, te je prepoznao Lidijinu dobro volju i spremnost da surađuje s Božjom milošću, te je s lakoćom privodi k Bogu. To je i poruka nama današnjim apostolima da znamo biti prilagodljivi jedni drugima te surađivati za stvar Božju ali i za naše približavanje Bogu.

    Pavlov uspjeh u Evropi slavimo pripjevnim psalmom u kojem pjevamo Gospodinu pjesmu novu. Bog će svaki narod ljubiti kao svoj narod ako taj ostane ponizan, a poniznost traži da drugome posredujemo Božje darove kao Božje a ne kao svoje. Cilj je da po svemu svijetu slave Boga svi koji su mu posvećeni.

    U današnjem evanđelju Gospodin govori o Duhu Svetom kojega će on poslati od Oca i sada za njega tvrdi da će on pred svijetom nastupati kao Kristov svjedok. U malo riječi sadržano je mnogo toga što nam govori o međusobnim odnosima između triju božanskih osoba i o njihovu zajedničkom nastupanju prema vani. Još je jedanput posve jasno da je Duh Sveti posebna božanska osoba koja izlazi od Oca i Sina. Duh Sveti svjedoči za Isusa. Sjedinjeni s Duhom Svetim i mi njegovom pomoći svjedočimo za Krista.

    Na same Duhove smo vidjeli koliko je Duh Sveti zasjajio svojim milostima da se na Petrovu riječ obratilo veliko mnoštvo ljudi. To je učinio Duh Sveti prije obećan i tada poslan… I zaista Duh Sveti, svjedočeći za Krista i silno jačajući njegove svjedoke, Kristove je prijatelje oslobodio straha i mržnju je njegovih neprijatelja pretvorio u ljubav, kako reće sv. Augustin. U današnjem evanđelju Isus svojima naviješta da će ih zbog Oca i zbog njega izbacivati iz sinagoga, ali da se ne pokolebaju kad za njih nastupe teški trenuci. Isus je predvidio sve nedaće koje će zadesiti njegove i sve nam je to navijestio. Isusove nas riječi žele ohrabriti da sve za njega pretrpimo ali da ne dozvolimo da netko trpi zbog nas i naših postupaka, jer se zna dogoditi da zbog vjerskog fantizma netko sa strane nastrada zbog takvog ponašanja. Zato poslušajmo Isusa koji nas poziva da se oboružamo Duhom Svetim i postupamo po njegovom nadahnuću.

    radijo do smrti jadan FRANJO , cuj ovo – https://www.bitno.net/obitelj/roditeljstvo/franjo-toljanic-poginuo-obitelj/

    Tragično poginuli Franjo Toljanić i njegova supruga Katarina mogu nas štošta naučiti o braku i obitelji

    Dijete moje, zašto toliko čekaš da mi dođeš? Vidio sam tvoju bol, čuo tvoje jecaje, a ipak mi ne dolaziš. Kada ćeš naučiti najprije mene potražiti da ti budem izvor utjehe i potvrde?

    Vidim tvoju usamljenost, osjećam tvoju odbačenost, vidim da strahuješ da će te drugi opet odbaciti… ALI JA JESAM… Ja nisam poput drugih. Dok ne naučiš da nikada neću otići, dok ne naučiš da te nikada neću zaboraviti, i mene ćeš se bojati. Moraš naučiti vjerovati mi.

    To znači iskoračiti, iskušati me, provjeriti me kada ti osjećaji govore suprotno. Kada je moj Sin odgovorio napasniku: „Ne iskušavaj Boga svojega, to nije bilo kušanje o kojemu je On (Isus) govorio. Ono što od tebe tražim je da ojačaš svoju vjeru, da je izgradiš. I

    Uvijek sam s tobom. U tebi sam. Prestani o meni razmišljati kao da smo odvojeni… tada se osjećaš odbačeno. Ali ako se sjetiš da smo jedno, kao što su Otac i Sin jedno, tada ćeš znati da si u meni, sigurno prihvaćena, pravedna i potvrđena. Ja ne mogu samoga sebe odbaciti. Odmori se u meni. Imaj povjerenja u mene. Vjeruj mi. Daj da te zagrlim kada plačeš. Znaj da moje srce kuca s tvojim.

    želim da se raduješ u mojoj radosti nad tobom… Kada padneš, sjeti se da sam ja ranjen zbog tvojih grijeha, da nosim masnice tvojih nepravdi, da je kazna cijeloga svijeta pala na mene. Pokaj se i nastavi dalje. Tvoje dugo žaljenje zbog stvari za koje sam već platio nije ni od kakve koristi. Uzaludan je osjećaj krivnje zbog stvari koje nisi savršeno obavila. Sjeti se „metaxi“ (tu je riječ koristio Augustin, a znači da živimo između Edena i Neba. Ne možemo i ne smijemo očekivati savršenstvo s ove strane Neba. Život je neuredan.) Još nisi u nebu. Od tebe ne očekujem savršenstvo. Važno mi je tvoje srce. Volim te, dijete moje… Dođi i voli sa mnom. Voli se. Pokazat ću ti kako da se voliš. To će ti pomoći da voliš i druge, ali sada želim da se raduješ u mojoj radosti nad tobom, da uživaš u mojemu uživanju u tebi i da pjevaš pjesmu ljubavi koju za tebe imam.

    “Warsaw Will be a Capital of The United States Of The Europe…” – Vision of Teresa Neumann – German mystic and stigmatist from October 15, 1948
    Posted byAmourcratez27. oktober 2019Posted inAmourcratez
    “I will not refuse enlightened and wise in Poland. The smartest laws and the most justice laws will be announced in Polish”

    Teresa Neumann from Konnersreuth (born April 9, 1898 in Konnersreuth; died September 18, 1962, ibid) German mystic and stigmatist. She was a member of the Secular Franciscan Order. On March 5, 1926, Teresa was became to be blessed with stigmas. Bloody wounds were visible on her arms, legs, head and side. Every week, from midnight on Thursday to 1pm on Friday, her wounds opened and bled. During ecstasies, she was to watch Jesus’ passion, foretell future events, and speak foreign languages ​​(including Aramaic) that she had never known before. Despite the suffering, she was active and full of energy on other days of the week. Witnesses claim that thanks to prayer, Teresa caused other people’s ailments in her body. In this way, she was to heal the sick. Hundreds of people made pilgrimages to her home in Konnersreuth, asking for God’s grace and intercession. From 1922 until her death in 1962, Teresa did not eat any food except the daily Eucharist.

    Theresa Neumman with Visible Stigmata
    Teresa died on September 18, 1962 as a result of a sudden cardiac arrest and was buried at the Konnersreuth cemetery. Votive tablets are engraved around the monument with engraved requests, acknowledgments and names of donors. Her grave is visited by pilgrims from various countries of the world. In 2004, nearly 40,000 people signed a request for her beatification. In 2005, Bishop Gerhard Ludwig Müller began the beatification process of Teresa at diocesan level.

    Teresa Neumann’s vision of October 15, 1948,
    / Stephen Lassare – Discovered Secrets of the Future, redaction: Adam, Warsaw 1992 /

    “For many years, God has given me visions of the future, and so far everything has worked. However, I was silent, saying nothing to anyone but my confessor, until I received a clear order to write. Two days before October 15, 1948, the prophet Elijah appeared to me along with Saint Teresa of the Infant Jesus and Saint. John of the Cross. These saints are patrons and guardians of the Carmelite Order. The prophet Elijah gave me the explicit order to write:

    “Listen Israel, that’s what the Lord says to you. Listen to the warning, my brothers. For the Lord has removed the seal of silence from my lips and put his words in my mouth. The first of these dreams is for you, Israel. Through the Elijah, the Lord instructed me to speak to you in His name. Listen, Israel, do not harden your heart, for the Lord tells you. There was silence in front of you for many years. Oh, the ungrateful tribe who killed the prophets and crucified the Son of God Himself! Since you have not listened to the Son of God, nor did His apostles speak to you? That you would no longer be exiles and homeless among the nations of the world, you were given a piece of the land that the Savior’s blood sanctified and the state of Israel arose. Your wandering feet have touched the Holy Land, in which there is a blessing. May you understand grace and find faith in love, remember the Holy Scriptures and prophets, and do not harden your hearts for eternal destruction, giving the earth old secrets.
    Do you not know now how faithful the speech of the prophets was and how all the prophecies of Jesus Christ, whom you did not know and crucified were fulfilled?
    The time will come, not far away, when he will give up the land of his dead and there will be judgment on all tribes and generations of the world. Then woe to the ungodly servants of pride and hatred whose hearts are hardened. Woe to those who do not repent, do not turn to their Lord the Redeemer. “

    And now the second words which the Lord commanded me to say to all people:
    “A great and dangerous hour is coming, judgment and punishment. As long as you have time, listen and give up your sins that deserve punishment. Woe to the earth when the fruit of penance is lacking, and the lips of those who pray are silent. This time the heavenly rebounds will not open like in the days of Noah, and no water will flow to cover the earth with tainted sins. But the earth will open, it will burn from the volcanoes that have already gone out, and its womb will tremble until the land is crumbling, where the grain rustles and the crops are standing. Lightning will rain like clouds until the matter of human hatred is touched. A new flood is coming, not the water this time, but fire and lightning. Woe to you, sons who do iniquity. Woe unto you, nations that have denied God and trampled on His Cross, who are ashamed of the sign of the Cross, the sign of your redemption, and are not ashamed of crime and cruelty.
    Woe to you, Germania. You have never thought on the trail of your crime that your hatred and pride could have created for you an unfathomable pit in place of eternal destruction, a pit whose depth the depth of your guilt will fill with the heat of such flames and with such a strength of punishment as it will not be for others. You have not thought about the dangers they can ignite forever, your shame and punishment, the words of your pride.

    Nur fur Deutsche. You recognized yourself as superhumans, and because of your deeds you became worse than wolves and hyenas, when you spared neither the living nor the dead and disgraced the corpses of those whose lives you gave up. You added new crimes to the old ones, and the cry of the murdered Jews joined the old, with the cry of blood, of forgotten peoples.

    Woe first to you, Prussians, leaders and enemies. Two blows of the wind have already come and the Roman Empire of the German Nation has collapsed and the severe power of the sons of the North has fallen. And the third blow will come, and then woe to Berlin. The fate of Berlin will be like the fate of Nineveh, because when it falls into ruins, it will not be rebuilt anymore. A wind storm covered Nineveh with sand, though it was larger than other antiquity cities.
    The forest will be buzzing over the rubble of Berlin – the city of crime and pride. It will be a blessing for you, Germania, if another takes power over you, if washed with a stream of blood and tears of late repentance, you will listen to another voice, knowing what your guilt and your loss were. Not those because there are chosen ones who recognize themselves as such. Others who you despise in pride, ahead you in word and power.

    Woe to you, Albion, who is trading of another’s blood. Guiltness upon of You, because of wrongs. You chose a mammon instead of God, and you despised My Law and the See of Peter. You sent soldiers and buyers to distant countries for your strength and your gain, and you did not care for My glory. Because of your fault, whole tribes did not become Christians, nor did you care for the soul of your own sons. Repent as long as you go and turn to me, your Lord, and acknowledge My servant over you.

    Woe to you, all worshipers of the golden calf, for you have made a profit and shamed the earth, and you have hurt the people by lying and hatred, which you have seduced by promises of freedom and revenge. On you, bankers with their hands closed by greed and petrified hearts, the weight of sweat and exploited tears falls, and the weight of the blood they shed, destroying themselves in blindness. Woe to you, shockers and soul deprivers. The days of your reign are short. Your end will be among the flames with the beast you serve. When you threaten the West, the sword from the East will fall on you. I have put the peoples of yellow Gog and Magog to guard Europe’s security. You have put yourself in the service of hatred, you will be punished by hatred. I feel sorry for the people who suffer, I feel sorry for the children you made sons of lies and iniquity. I will not leave the people in your power, nor will I bring believers in this land to corruption. The land and sea will be indignant at the shock and fire and snowmen will rise up against them. Woe to the world for offenses. I know those whose eyes are blinded and hearts are deceived. I will scold those who empire the tools, and I will have pity on tools. My mercy will rise over the nation in oppression and shame, and the land of the despised will see light and blessing upon itself. The power of the wicked will cease. Latin crosses will shine in the Kremlin, and the Catholic Church of the Savior will stand in the place of the destroyed church of Christ the Savior. As in arable land, a seed of good will fall and the face of a nation that has suffered so much.

    My blessing, I will give to the Slavs, and the Slavs, although many of them err today, will receive them better and bear fruit more abundantly. They will be My true people, the people of the Eternal Word, and they will understand My teaching and become obedient.

    For they are not the chosen ones who choose themselves, but those who stand up at God’s call. Tears of penance and prayer will not be in vain, and faithfulness to perseverance will not be without blessing and reward. She will take off her shackles and become queen. The tears that My Mother shed under the Cross will put in for her, and the nation that worships her will not be the last among the nations.

    I will not refuse enlightened and wise in Poland. The smartest laws and the most just laws will be announced in Polish, and Warsaw will become the capital of the United States of Europe.
    Poland, which suffered the first punishment, although it was not the biggest her fault, sooner than others rose. In what she was at fault, she had to suffer punishment. But the end of her penance is near. She persevere with her church and waits for liberation. She will not remember his enemies, she will pay good for evil. It will have glory among nations and wings wide open, it will also expand its borders. She will take nations loyal to the Church as a reward of their loyalty.

    Will come, despite the defeat, again glory over Paris and Tokyo. Spain will be the country of My Heart, it will rise through love for it. Italy, though it may flow with solemn blood, will have a beautiful spiritual revival. I look at tears of loyalty and their penance. Once again, I will have pity on the world. The ax of punishment will postpone and enliven my sinful hearts. I will not leave the land ill to rule as they have thought in their hearts. The speech of thunder is the treasury of those who do not listen to the speech of love, and for those who were not enough human words, the voice of flames will sound.

    So listen to the caution, sinners, while I admonish you, and convert while I wait. For there is a great and near time when I will neither admonish nor wait.

    Do not be afraid, however, you who fear God and do not resist Satan’s promptings in despair. Have confidence in me and in the mission of the Mother of God who intercedes for you. I see you in trouble and have pity on you. It protects you against justice. My blood has been shed for you. My sacrifice has not passed away, but it lasts and saves you, although you do not value it. You do not watch closely at My altars. I remember the tears which My Mother shed under the cross and I have regard for Her Heart, pierced with a sword of sorrows. This Immaculate and Merciful Heart covers you. Put your hand on the plow and I will bless your efforts. “
    This is what our Lord Jesus Christ told me to tell you, my brothers: “The invisible coats of Angels are playing, the winds are blowing to damage the earth, a cataclysm is approaching, which has not been since Noah’s days.”

Znamo da će kasnije toj kršćanskoj zajednici Pavao napisati svoju najsrdačniju poslanicu iz koje se i sada osjeća koliko je tokom života bio s njima povezan. Stanovnici su Filipa bili miješana porijekla. Među Pavlovim slušateljima i slušateljicama, kad je on prve subote po svojem dolasku, u pomanjkanju mjesne sinagoge, govorio kod rijeke izvan gradskih vrata, našla se Lidija, prva poznata obraćenica na evropskom tlu. Luka, pisac Djela apostolskih, upoznaje nas da je Lidija bila razborita žena koja je sve što je činila dobro promislila. Ali sada se nije kolebala. Izvanredno brzo se odlučila da se pokrsti. Hrabra je Lidija svojim odlučnim nastupom i snažnim glasom sposobne domaćice brzo dovela svu svoju služinčad na krštenje. Uz to je Pavla i njegove drugove pozvala da stanuju u njezinoj kući koja je tako postala prva kršćanska crkva u Evropi. Vidi se da je Lidija bila emancipirana žena, vrlo sposobna trgovka, no prava Pavlova apostolska duša, ne gleda toliko na vanjštinu i ne sudi po njoj, te je prepoznao Lidijinu dobro volju i spremnost da surađuje s Božjom milošću, te je s lakoćom privodi k Bogu. To je i poruka nama današnjim apostolima da znamo biti prilagodljivi jedni drugima te surađivati za stvar Božju ali i za naše približavanje Bogu.

    Pavlov uspjeh u Evropi slavimo pripjevnim psalmom u kojem pjevamo Gospodinu pjesmu novu. Bog će svaki narod ljubiti kao svoj narod ako taj ostane ponizan, a poniznost traži da drugome posredujemo Božje darove kao Božje a ne kao svoje. Cilj je da po svemu svijetu slave Boga svi koji su mu posvećeni.

    U današnjem evanđelju Gospodin govori o Duhu Svetom kojega će on poslati od Oca i sada za njega tvrdi da će on pred svijetom nastupati kao Kristov svjedok. U malo riječi sadržano je mnogo toga što nam govori o međusobnim odnosima između triju božanskih osoba i o njihovu zajedničkom nastupanju prema vani. Još je jedanput posve jasno da je Duh Sveti posebna božanska osoba koja izlazi od Oca i Sina. Duh Sveti svjedoči za Isusa. Sjedinjeni s Duhom Svetim i mi njegovom pomoći svjedočimo za Krista.

    Na same Duhove smo vidjeli koliko je Duh Sveti zasjajio svojim milostima da se na Petrovu riječ obratilo veliko mnoštvo ljudi. To je učinio Duh Sveti prije obećan i tada poslan… I zaista Duh Sveti, svjedočeći za Krista i silno jačajući njegove svjedoke, Kristove je prijatelje oslobodio straha i mržnju je njegovih neprijatelja pretvorio u ljubav, kako reće sv. Augustin. U današnjem evanđelju Isus svojima naviješta da će ih zbog Oca i zbog njega izbacivati iz sinagoga, ali da se ne pokolebaju kad za njih nastupe teški trenuci. Isus je predvidio sve nedaće koje će zadesiti njegove i sve nam je to navijestio. Isusove nas riječi žele ohrabriti da sve za njega pretrpimo ali da ne dozvolimo da netko trpi zbog nas i naših postupaka, jer se zna dogoditi da zbog vjerskog fantizma netko sa strane nastrada zbog takvog ponašanja. Zato poslušajmo Isusa koji nas poziva da se oboružamo Duhom Svetim i postupamo po njegovom nadahnuću.

    Tragično poginuli Franjo Toljanić i njegova supruga Katarina mogu nas štošta naučiti o braku i obitelji

    Dijete moje, zašto toliko čekaš da mi dođeš? Vidio sam tvoju bol, čuo tvoje jecaje, a ipak mi ne dolaziš. Kada ćeš naučiti najprije mene potražiti da ti budem izvor utjehe i potvrde?

    Vidim tvoju usamljenost, osjećam tvoju odbačenost, vidim da strahuješ da će te drugi opet odbaciti… ALI JA JESAM… Ja nisam poput drugih. Dok ne naučiš da nikada neću otići, dok ne naučiš da te nikada neću zaboraviti, i mene ćeš se bojati. Moraš naučiti vjerovati mi.

    To znači iskoračiti, iskušati me, provjeriti me kada ti osjećaji govore suprotno. Kada je moj Sin odgovorio napasniku: „Ne iskušavaj Boga svojega, to nije bilo kušanje o kojemu je On (Isus) govorio. Ono što od tebe tražim je da ojačaš svoju vjeru, da je izgradiš. I

    Uvijek sam s tobom. U tebi sam. Prestani o meni razmišljati kao da smo odvojeni… tada se osjećaš odbačeno. Ali ako se sjetiš da smo jedno, kao što su Otac i Sin jedno, tada ćeš znati da si u meni, sigurno prihvaćena, pravedna i potvrđena. Ja ne mogu samoga sebe odbaciti. Odmori se u meni. Imaj povjerenja u mene. Vjeruj mi. Daj da te zagrlim kada plačeš. Znaj da moje srce kuca s tvojim.

    želim da se raduješ u mojoj radosti nad tobom… Kada padneš, sjeti se da sam ja ranjen zbog tvojih grijeha, da nosim masnice tvojih nepravdi, da je kazna cijeloga svijeta pala na mene. Pokaj se i nastavi dalje. Tvoje dugo žaljenje zbog stvari za koje sam već platio nije ni od kakve koristi. Uzaludan je osjećaj krivnje zbog stvari koje nisi savršeno obavila. Sjeti se „metaxi“ (tu je riječ koristio Augustin, a znači da živimo između Edena i Neba. Ne možemo i ne smijemo očekivati savršenstvo s ove strane Neba. Život je neuredan.) Još nisi u nebu. Od tebe ne očekujem savršenstvo. Važno mi je tvoje srce. Volim te, dijete moje… Dođi i voli sa mnom. Voli se. Pokazat ću ti kako da se voliš. To će ti pomoći da voliš i druge, ali sada želim da se raduješ u mojoj radosti nad tobom, da uživaš u mojemu uživanju u tebi i da pjevaš pjesmu ljubavi koju za tebe imam.

  8. Čudo krvi – Kamenovana Bogorodica

    2h ago

    Kamenovana Bogorodica

    Početak predaje o Bogorodici Kamenovanoj vezan je za selo Re u dolini Vigezzo na sjeveru Italije i seže u 1494. godinu kada je neki mladić imenom Giovanni Zucono u trenutku ljutnje kamenom pogodio srednjovjekovnu sliku Bogorodice s Djetetom naslikane na pročelju seoske crkve sv. Mauricija. Slika je nakon toga tri tjedna neprekidno krvarila što je privuklo pozornost znatiželjnika. Uslijedila su i čudotvorna ozdravljenja po Bogorodičinom zagovoru, pa je nakon nekog vremena dio zida s čudotvornom slikom prenesen u novoizgrađenu baziliku. Pobožnost prema Bogorodici Kamenovanoj osobito je zaživjela tijekom XVII. i

    XVIII. stoljeća, a vjeruje se da su ju na područje Srednje Europe putem svetih sličica proširili

    dimnjačari iz Vigezza, svojedobno vrlo traženi na ovim prostorima.

    Čudotvorna krv prolivena s prednje strane Bogorodice je najdragocjenije blago svetišta. Mala količina čudotvorne krvi nalazi se u maloj staklenoj ampuli zatvorenoj staklenim čepom i obješenom na zlatni lanac. Oporavljena krv dolazi u obliku malih kristala različitih veličina, žućkaste i tamno crvene boje.

    Ampula je zatvorena u staklenu čašu zajedno s tkaninom boje tamne boje slonove kosti i svilenim fragmentom koji sadrži sivkasti muštin. Svila je posuta tamnocrvenim mrljama. Tu su još dva crveno-crvena svilena ulomka i fragment sirove tkanine u obliku vrpce, s fragmentima srebrnog papira. Staklo se zatvara metalnim poklopcem s četiri brtvila. Najmanji je nejasan. Može potjecati iz prvog izviđanja relikvije 1628. koju je proveo biskup Volpi. Drugi pečat je biskupa Eula i odnosi se na moguće priznanje u desetljeću njegova biskupstva između 1876. i 1886. Treći biskup Osola datira iz 1948. godine u kojoj je franjevački biskup uzeo djelić tkanine namočene u čudotvornu krv da je razotkrije u maloj monstraci koja je pratila kip Majke hodočasnice u svim župama biskupije Novara. Sada je vrijeme blagosloviti čudesnu krv hodočasnicima koji dolaze u svetište.

    Posljednje istraživanje bilo je u listopadu 1962. na inicijativu nadbiskupa Gramignija. Dragocjene relikvije čuvaju se u šatoru na poleđini oltara Gospe u prijenosnom relikvijaru otvorenom 5. kolovoza 1928. po uzoru na novi hram.

    Gospa od krvi VALLE VIGEZZO – NOVARA Suze na slici: utorak, 29. travnja 1494

    Tragovi krvi na slici čuda gotovo su nestali; mogu se identificirati samo s optičkim instrumentima. Znanstveno istraživanje freske i relikvija krvi izvršila je prof. Judica Cordiglia iz Torina 1962. godine. Sadržaj ampule pokazao je nepogrešiv spektar komponenti krvi; tkanine su bile tkanine starosti čuda; dok je radiografsko ispitivanje glave Bogorodice naglašavalo lom frontalnog dijela uzrokovanog rubom tupog instrumenta ravnog oblika (piodella).

    Istraga prof Cordoglia također je istaknula zapanjujući detalj koji su dali očevici u vrijeme izljeva: protok krvi, umjesto da teče na glatkom zidu freske, tekao bi licem Gospe i Djeteta kao da su dvije prave osobe.

    Danas svetište čine dvije zgrade koje su međusobno povezane. Uz veličanstvenu baziliku posvećenu 1958. da djeluje kao škrinja s blagom. Srce kompleksa ostaje svetohranište u kojem se nalazi dragocjeni relikvijar. To je kristalna ampula zapečaćena staklenim čepom, ovješena u zlatni lanac i zatvorena u staklenu čašu s krpom i fragmentom svile natopljenom u tekućinu koju je provela profesorica Judica Cordiglia iz Torina 1962. potvrdila je da je hematske prirode, dok je radiografsko ispitivanje Bogorodičinog čela naglašavalo lom uzrokovan rubom tupog ravnog tijela, oblik “piodele” korišten u tradicionalnoj igri na podrijetlo čuda.,

    Mudrost Oca

    No, kako bi ponovno otkrili najautentičniji osjećaj ovog mjesta, moramo se vratiti u sićušno staro svetište ispred oltara gdje je, zaštićeno staklom, freska iz koje je sve počelo. Dijete koje sjedi na koljenima Djevice drži kartu s natpisom In gremio matris sedet sapientia patris (U majčinoj utrobi sjedi mudrost Oca). “Sve počinje i završava ovdje”, komentirao je otac Julita, ” Marija nam pokazuje i nudi nam Isusa, jer je Majka najsavršeniji i najsigurniji način da se dođe do Sina, budući da je na isti način Isus došao na susret s nama ».

    Čuda se ponavljaju

    Ovdje se hodočasti već 524 godine. Ovdje dolaze čak iz Mađarske . Tamo gdje je slika Madonne di Re, koju je nosila skupina Vigezzini emigranata, ponovila čudo . «Ljudi Božji», zaključuje nam otac Julita, « Marija daje obećanja koja ne varaju. Više od pet stoljeća popularne pobožnosti svjedoči da su mnogi pronašli odgovore na pitanja koja remete naše hodanje u labirintima povijesti, kako pojedinci i tako i zajednice “.

    Najsvečanije slavlje je 29. travnja . Ovaj datum podsjeća na čudo 1494. godine. Vrhunac je “Misa čuda” u 15.00 sati. U popodnevnim satima slavi se još prije nego što je Pio XII odobrio takozvanu “večernju misu”, zahvaljujući oprostu . 1. svibnja, ako vrijeme dopusti, u 15 sati relikvija se nosi u procesiji oko bazilike.

    Prošnje

    Proslavimo Krista koji je pohvalio one što izabiru djevičanstvo radi kraljevstva nebeskoga i s pouzdanjem mu se obratimo:

    Isuse, kralju djevica, usliši nas.

    Kriste, ti si Crkvu učinio sebi čistom Zaručnicom:

    − učini da bude neokaljana i sveta.

    Kriste, tebi svete djevice idu u susret sa zapaljenim svjetiljkama:

    − ne dopusti da ikada ponestane ulja vjernosti u svjetiljkama odanih ti službenica.

    Gospodine, Crkva djevica vjeru je u tebe uvijek sačuvala čistom i cjelovitom:

    − daj svim kršćanima da sačuvaju čistu i cjelovitu vjeru.

    Tvojom se dobrotom tvoj narod raduje o svetkovini djevice Katarine Sijenske:

    − daj da uvijek bude radostan i s njezina zagovora.

    Ti si na svadbenu gozbu primio svete djevice:

    − daj pripusti u nebesku svadbenu dvoranu i naše drage pokojnike.

    Oče naš…

    Molitva

    Bože, ti si svetoj Katarini dao žar božanske ljubavi u razmatranju Gospodnje muke i služenju tvojoj Crkvi. Po njezinu zagovoru i nas pridruži Kristovu otajstvu da se vazda radujemo objavi njegove slave. Po Gospodinu.

    Blagoslovio nas svemogući Bog, sačuvao nas od svakoga zla i priveo nas u život vječni.

    O. Amen.

Katarine ostala je neraspadnuta… Foto: Dominican Sisters of Hope Jedna od najzanimljivijih svetih relikvija čuva se u bazilici sv. Dominika u Sieni u Italiji, gradu udaljenom oko 72 kilometra od Toskane. Vjernici i turisti ondje mogu vidjeti mumificiranu glavu svete Katarine Sijenske, iza zaključane pozlaćene rešetke. Katarina Sijenska (1347. – 1380.) poznata je po nevjerojatnim vjerskim vizijama, a bila je i utjecajna reformatorica Crkve i istaknuta papinska veleposlanica. ČUDO ZA VRIJEME PRENOŠENJA GLAVE U SIENU Sveta je Katarina Sijenska prvotno bila pokopana na groblju u blizini bazilike Santa Maria sopra Minevra u Rimu. Raymond od Capua želio je poslati dio Katarininog tijela natrag u Sienu zbog njezine obitelji. To je bio zadatak koji je obavio potajno, s obzirom da nije imao dopuštenje. Dobio je priliku 1383. kada je Katarinina grobnica preseljena u baziliku Santa Maria sopra Minevra. Tada je uredio da se glava odvoji od tijela i doveze u Sienu. Dužnosnici bazilike rekli su da je glavu bilo lako odvojiti jer je kišnica ušla u grob i ubrzala raspad. Ljudi koji su obavljali taj sablazni posao jedva su uspjeli pobjeći. Stražari su ih zaustavili dok su napuštali Rim, pa su se molili Katarini za pomoć. Kad su čuvari provjeravali sumnjivu torbu s glavom, vidjeli su samo latice ruže. Tek kad su glavu isporučili u Sienu, latice ruže pretvorile su se natrag u Katarininu glavu. Mumificirana glava svete Katarine postavljena je na pozlaćenu bistu i izložena u bazilici sv. Dominika. Lubanja sv. Katarine nije bila jedini dio tijela uklonjen iz groba u Rimu. Dijelovi njezinog tijela bili su podijeljeni među crkvama diljem Italije. Kanonizirao ju je papa Pio II. 1461. godine.

    JUTARNJA

    SVETA KATARINA SIJENSKA, DJEVICA I CRKVENA NAUČITELJICA: Rođena je u Sieni godine 1347 . Kao djevojčica, težeći za višim, upiše se u treći red sv. Dominika. Gorjela je od ljubavi prema Bogu i bližnjima, učvršćivala je mir i slogu među građanima, odvažno je branila prava i slobodu rimskog Prvosvećenika i promicala je obnovu redovničkog života . Od nje su nam ostala i pisana djela bogata naukom i duhovnim životom. Umrla je godine 1380.

    Dođite, poklonimo se Gospodinu,

    izvoru svake mudrosti (V. V. Aleluja).

    Ili:
    Dođite, poklonimo se Janjetu
    za kojim idu djevice (V. V. Aleluja).

    Dođite, kličimo Gospodinu, *
    uzvikujmo Hridi, Spasitelju svome!
    Pred lice mu stupimo s hvalama, *
    kličimo mu u pjesmama! (Ant.).

    Jer Gospodin je Bog velik, *
    Kralj velik nad svim bogovima.
    U njegovoj su ruci zemaljske dubine, *
    njegovi su vrhunci planina.
    Njegovo je more, on ga je stvorio, *
    i kopno koje načiniše ruke njegove: (Ant.).

    Dođite, prignimo koljena i padnimo nice, *
    poklonimo se Gospodinu koji nas stvori!
    Jer on je Bog naš, *
    a mi narod paše njegove, ovce što on ih čuva (Ant.).

    O da danas glas mu poslušate: †
    »Ne budite srca tvrda kao u Meribi, *
    kao u dan Mase u pustinji
    gdje me iskušavahu očevi vaši, *
    iskušavahu, premda vidješe djela moja. (Ant.).

    Četrdeset mi ljeta dodijavao naraštaj onaj, †
    pa rekoh: Narod su nestalna srca, *
    i ne proniču moje putove.
    Tako se zakleh u svom gnjevu: *
    Nikad neće ući u moj počinak!« (Ant.).

    Slava Ocu i Sinu *
    i Duhu Svetomu.
    Kako bijaše na početku, †
    tako i sada i vazda *
    i u vijeke vjekova. (Ant.).

    Ti postade meni pomoć, *
    kličem u sjeni krila tvojih.

    A Warning to the West
    Jan 1, 2020

    Cardinal Sarah discusses his latest book, ‘The Day is Far Spent’

    Cardinal Robert Sarah is publishing the third of his book-length interviews with Nicolas Diat: The Day is Far Spent. An unflinching diagnosis, but one full of hope in the midst of the spiritual and moral crisis of the West.

    1) In the first part of your book, you describe “a spiritual and religious collapse.” How does this collapse manifest itself? Does it only affect the West or are other regions of the world, such as Africa, also affected by it?

    The spiritual crisis involves the entire world. But its source is in Europe. People in the West are guilty of rejecting God. They have not only rejected God. Friedrich Nietzsche, who may be considered the spokesman of the West, has claimed: “God is dead! God remains dead! And we have killed him…” We have murdered God. In view of God’s death among men, Nietzsche would replace him with a prophetic “Superman.”

    The spiritual collapse thus has a very Western character. In particular, I would like to emphasize the rejection of fatherhood. Our contemporaries are convinced that, in order to be free, one must not depend on anybody. There is a tragic error in this. Western people are convinced that receiving is contrary to the dignity of human persons. But civilized man is fundamentally an heir, he receives a history, a culture, a language, a name, a family. This is what distinguishes him from the barbarian. To refuse to be inscribed within a network of dependence, heritage, and filiation condemns us to go back naked into the jungle of a competitive economy left to its own devices. Because he refuses to acknowledge himself as an heir, man is condemned to the hell of liberal globalization in which individual interests confront one another without any law to govern them besides profit at any price.

    In this book, however, I want to suggest to Western people that the real cause of this refusal to claim their inheritance and this refusal of fatherhood is the rejection of God. From Him we receive our nature as man and woman. This is intolerable to modern minds. Gender ideology is a Luciferian refusal to receive a sexual nature from God. Thus some rebel against God and pointlessly mutilate themselves in order to change their sex. But in reality they do not fundamentally change anything of their structure as man or woman. The West refuses to receive, and will accept only what it constructs for itself. Transhumanism is the ultimate avatar of this movement. Because it is a gift from God, human nature itself becomes unbearable for western man.

    This revolt is spiritual at root. It is the revolt of Satan against the gift of grace. Fundamentally, I believe that Western man refuses to be saved by God’s mercy. He refuses to receive salvation, wanting to build it for himself. The “fundamental values” promoted by the UN are based on a rejection of God that I compare with the rich young man in the Gospel. God has looked upon the West and has loved it because it has done wonderful things. He invited it to go further, but the West turned back. It preferred the kind of riches that it owed only to itself.

    Africa and Asia are not yet entirely contaminated by gender ideology, transhumanism, or the hatred of fatherhood. But the Western powers’ neo-colonialist spirit and will to dominate pressures countries to adopt these deadly ideologies.

    2) You write that “Christ never promised his faithful that they would be in the majority” (pg. 34), and you go on: “Despite the missionaries’ greatest efforts, the Church has never dominated the world. The Church’s mission is a mission of love, and love does not dominate” (pg. 35). Earlier, you wrote that “it is the ‘small remnant’ that has saved the faith.” If you will pardon a bold question: What is the problem exactly, seeing that this “small remnant” does in fact exist currently and manages to survive even in a world hostile to the faith?

    Christians must be missionaries. They cannot keep the treasure of the Faith for themselves. Mission and evangelization remain an urgent spiritual task. And as St. Paul says, every Christian should be able to say “If I proclaim the gospel, this gives me no ground for boasting, for an obligation is laid on me, and woe to me if I do not proclaim the gospel!” (1 Cor 9:16). Further, “God desires everyone to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Tim 2:4). How can we do nothing when so many souls do not know the only truth that sets us free: Jesus Christ? The prevailing relativism considers religious pluralism to be a good in itself. No! The plenitude of revealed truth that the Catholic Church has received must be transmitted, proclaimed, and preached.

    The goal of evangelization is not world domination, but the service of God. Don’t forget that Christ’s victory over the world is…the Cross! It is not our intention to take over the power of the world. Evangelization is done through the Cross.

    The martyrs are the first missionaries. Before the eyes of men, their life is a failure. The goal of evangelization is not to “keep count” like social media networks that want to “make a buzz.” Our goal is not to be popular in the media. We want that each and every soul be saved by Christ. Evangelization is not a question of success. It is a profoundly interior and supernatural reality.

    1577877313551

    3) I’d like to go back to one of your points in the previous question. Do you mean to say that European Christendom, where Christianity was able to establish itself throughout the whole of society, was only a sort of interlude in history; that it should not be taken as a model in the sense that in Europe Christianity “dominated” and imposed itself through a kind of social coercion?

    A society permeated by the Faith, the Gospel, and natural law is something desirable. It is the job of the lay faithful to construct it. That is in fact their proper vocation. They work for the good of all when they build a city in conformity with human nature and open to Revelation. But the more profound goal of the Church is not to construct a particular model society. The Church has received the mandate to proclaim salvation, which is a supernatural reality. A just society disposes souls to receive the gift of God, but it cannot give salvation. On the other hand, can there be a society that is just and in conformity with the natural law without the gift of grace working in souls? There is great need to proclaim the heart of our Faith: only Jesus saves us from sin. It must be emphasized, however, that evangelization is not complete when it takes hold of social structures. A society inspired by the Gospel protects the weak against the consequences of sin. Conversely, a society cut off from God quickly turns into a dictatorship and becomes a structure of sin, encouraging people toward evil. That is why we can say that there can be no just society without a place for God in the public sphere. A state that officially espouses atheism is an unjust state. A state that relegates God to the private sphere cuts itself off from the true source of rights and justice. A state that pretends to found rights on good will alone, and does not seek to found the law on an objective order received from the Creator, risks falling into totalitarianism.

    4) Over the course of European history, we have moved from a society in which the group outweighed the person (the holism of the Middle Ages) – a type of society that still exists in Africa and continues to characterize Islam – to a society in which the person is emancipated from the group (individualism). We might also say, broadly speaking, that we have passed from a society dominated by the quest for truth to a society dominated by the quest for freedom. The Church herself has developed her doctrine in the face of this evolution, proclaiming the right to religious liberty at Vatican II. How do you see the position of the Church toward this evolution? Is there a balance to be struck between the two poles of “truth” and “freedom,” whereas so far we have merely gone from one excess to the other?

    It is not correct to speak of a “balance” between two poles: truth and freedom. In fact, this manner of speaking presupposes that these realities are external to and in opposition to one another. Freedom is essentially a tending toward what is good and true. The truth is meant to be known and freely embraced. A freedom that is not itself oriented and guided by truth is nonsensical. Error has no rights. Vatican II recalled the fact that truth can only be established by the force of truth itself, and not by coercion. It also recalled that respect for persons and their freedom should not in any way make us indifferent in relation to the true and the good.

    Revelation is the breaking in of divine truth into our lives. It does not constrain us. In giving and revealing Himself, God respects the freedom that He Himself created. I believe that the opposition between truth and freedom is the fruit of a false conception of human dignity.

    Modern man hypostatizes his freedom, making it an absolute to the point of believing that it is threatened when he accepts the truth. However, to accept the truth is the most beautiful act of freedom that man can perform. I believe that your question reveals how deeply the crisis of the Western conscience is really in the end a crisis of faith. Western man is afraid of losing his freedom by accepting the gift of true faith. He prefers to close himself up inside a freedom that is devoid of content. The act of faith is an encounter between freedom and truth. That is why in the first chapter of my book I have insisted on the crisis of faith. Our freedom comes to fulfillment when it says “yes” to revealed truth. If freedom says “no” to God, it denies itself. It asphyxiates.

    5) You dwell at length on the crisis of the priesthood and argue for priestly celibacy. What do you see as the primary cause in the cases of sexual abuse of minors by priests, and what do you think of the summit that just took place in Rome on this question?

    I think that the crisis of the priesthood is one of the main factors in the crisis of the Church. We have taken away priests’ identity. We have made priests believe that they need to be efficient men. But a priest is fundamentally the continuation of Christ’s presence among us. He should not be defined by what he does, but by what he is: ipse Christus, Christ Himself. The discovery of many cases of sexual abuse against minors reveals a profound spiritual crisis, a grave, deep, and tragic rupture between the priest and Christ.

    Of course, there are social factors: the crisis of the ‘60s and the sexualization of society, which rebound on the Church. But we must have the courage to go further. The roots of this crisis are spiritual. A priest who does not pray or makes a theatre out of the sacraments, especially the Eucharist, a priest who only confesses rarely and who does not live concretely like another Christ, is cut off from the source of his own being. The result is death. I have dedicated this book to the priests of the whole world because I know that they are suffering. Many of them feel abandoned.

    We, the bishops, bear a large share of responsibility for the crisis of the priesthood. Have we been fathers to them? Have we listened to them, understood and guided them? Have we given them an example? Too often dioceses are transformed into administrative structures. There are so many meetings. The bishop should be the model for the priesthood. But we ourselves are far from being the ones most ready to pray in silence, or to chant the Office in our cathedrals. I fear that we lose ourselves in secondary, profane responsibilities.

    The place of a priest is on the Cross. When he celebrates Mass, he is at the source of his whole life, namely the Cross. Celibacy is a concrete means that permits us to live this mystery of the Cross in our lives. Celibacy inscribes the Cross in our very flesh. That is why celibacy is intolerable for the modern world. Celibacy is a scandal for modern people, because the Cross is a scandal.

    In this book, I want to encourage priests. I want to tell them: love your priesthood! Be proud to be crucified with Christ! Do not fear the world’s hate! I want to express my affection as a father and brother for the priests of the whole world.

    6) In a book that has caused quite a stir [In the Closet of the Vatican, by Frédéric Martel], the author explains that there are many homosexual prelates in the Vatican. He lends credibility to Mgr Viganò’s denunciation of the influence of a powerful gay network in the heart of the Curia. What do you think of this? Is there a homosexual problem in the heart of the Church and if so, why is it a taboo?

    Today the Church is living with Christ through the outrages of the Passion. The sins of her members come back to her like strikes on the face. Some have tried to instrumentalize these sins in order to put pressure on the bishops. Some want them to adopt the judgments and language of the world. Some bishops have caved in to the pressure. We see them calling for the abandonment of priestly celibacy or making unsound statements about homosexual acts. Should we be surprised? The Apostles themselves turned tail in the Garden of Olives. They abandoned Christ in His most difficult hour.

    We must be realistic and concrete. Yes, there are sinners. Yes, there are unfaithful priests, bishops, and even cardinals who fail to observe chastity. But also, and this is also very grave, they fail to hold fast to doctrinal truth! They disorient the Christian faithful by their confusing and ambiguous language. They adulterate and falsify the Word of God, willing to twist and bend it to gain the world’s approval. They are the Judas Iscariots of our time.

    Sin should not surprise us. On the other hand, we must have the courage to call it by name. We must not be afraid to rediscover the methods of spiritual combat: prayer, penance, and fasting. We must have the clear-sightedness to punish unfaithfulness. We must find the concrete means to prevent it. I believe that without a common prayer life, without a minimum of common fraternal life between priests, fidelity is an illusion. We must look to the model of the Acts of the Apostles.

    With regard to homosexual behaviors, let us not fall into the trap of the manipulators. There is no “homosexual problem” in the Church. There is a problem of sins and infidelity. Let us not perpetuate the vocabulary of LGBT ideology. Homosexuality does not define the identity of persons. It describes certain deviant, sinful, and perverse acts. For these acts, as for other sins, the remedies are known. We must return to Christ, and allow him to convert us. When the fault is public, the penalties provided for by Church law must be applied. Punishment is merciful, an act of charity and fraternal love. Punishment restores the damage done to the common good and permits the guilty party to redeem himself. Punishment is part of the paternal role of bishops. Finally, we must have the courage to clearly apply the norms regarding the acceptance of seminarians. Men whose psychology is deeply and permanently anchored in homosexuality, or who practice duplicity and lying, cannot be accepted as candidates for the priesthood.

    7) One chapter is dedicated to the “crisis of the Church.” When precisely do you place the beginning of this crisis and what does it consist in? In particular, how do you relate the “crisis of faith” to the crisis of “moral theology.” Does one precede the other?

    The crisis of the Church is above all a crisis of the faith. Some want the Church to be a human and horizontal society; they want it to speak the language of the media. They want to make it popular. They urge it not to speak about God, but to throw itself body and soul into social problems: migration, ecology, dialogue, the culture of encounter, the struggle against poverty, for justice and peace. These are of course important and vital questions before which the Church cannot shut her eyes. But a Church such as this is of interest to no one. The Church is only of interest because she allows us to encounter Jesus. She is only legitimate because she passes on Revelation to us. When the Church becomes overburdened with human structures, it obstructs the light of God shining out in her and through her. We are tempted to think that our action and our ideas will save the Church. It would be better to begin by letting her save herself.

    I think we are at a turning point in the history of the Church. The Church needs a profound, radical reform that must begin by a reform of the life of her priests. Priests must be possessed by the desire for holiness, for perfection in God and fidelity to the doctrine of Him who has chosen and sent them. Their whole being and all their activities must be put to the service of sanctity. The Church is holy in herself. Our sins and our worldly concerns prevent her holiness from diffusing itself. It is time to put aside all these burdens and allow the Church finally appear as God made Her. Some believe that the history of the Church is marked by structural reforms. I am sure that it is the saints who change history. The structures follow afterwards, and do nothing other than perpetuate the what the saints brought about.

    We need saints who dare to see all things through the eyes of faith, who dare to be enlightened by the light of God. The crisis of moral theology is the consequence of a voluntary blindness. We have refused to look at life through the light of the Faith.

    In the conclusion of my book, I speak about a poison from which are all suffering: a virulent atheism. It permeates everything, even our ecclesiastical discourse. It consists in allowing radically pagan and worldly modes of thinking or living to coexist side by side with faith. And we are quite content with this unnatural cohabitation! This shows that our faith has become diluted and inconsistent! The first reform we need is in our hearts. We must no longer compromise with lies. The Faith is both the treasure we have to defend and the power that will permit us to defend it.

    8) The second and third parts of your book are about crisis in western societies. The subject is so vast, and you touch on so many important points–from the expansion of the “culture of death” to the problems of consumerism tied to global liberalism, passing through questions of identity, transmission, Islamism, etc.–that it is impossible to address them all. Among these problems, which seem to you to be the most important and what are the principal causes for the decline of the West?

    First I would like to explain why I, a son of Africa, allow myself to address the West. The Church is the guardian of civilization. I am convinced that western civilization is passing at present through a mortal crisis. It has reached the extreme of self-destructive hate. As during the fall of Rome, elites are only concerned to increase the luxury of their daily life and the peoples are being anesthetized by ever more vulgar entertainment. As a bishop, it is my duty to warn the West! The barbarians are already inside the city. The barbarians are all those who hate human nature, all those who trample upon the sense of the sacred, all those who do not value life, all those who rebel against God the Creator of man and nature. The West is blinded by science, technology, and the thirst for riches. The lure of riches, which liberalism spreads in hearts, has sedated the peoples. At the same time, the silent tragedy of abortion and euthanasia continue and pornography and gender ideology destroy children and adolescents. We are accustomed to barbarism. It doesn’t even surprise us anymore! I want to raise a cry of alarm, which is also a cry of love. I do so with a heart full of filial gratitude for the Western missionaries who died in my land of Africa and who communicated to me the precious gift of faith in Jesus Christ. I want to follow their lead and receive their inheritance!

    How could I not emphasize the threat posed by Islamism? Muslims despise the atheistic West. They take refuge in Islamism as a rejection of the consumer society that is offered to them as a religion. Can the West present them the Faith in a clear way? For that it will have to rediscover its Christian roots and identity. To the countries of the third world, the West is held out as a paradise because it is ruled by commercial liberalism. This encourages the flow of migrants, so tragic for the identity of peoples. A West that denies its faith, its history, its roots, and its identity is destined for contempt, for death, and disappearance.

    But I would like to point out that everything is prepared for a renewal. I see families, monasteries, and parishes that are like oases in the middle of a desert. It is from these oases of faith, liturgy, beauty, and silence that the West will be reborn.

    9) You end this beautiful book with a section entitled “Rediscovering Hope: The Practice of the Christian Virtues.” What do you mean by this? In what way can practicing these virtues be a remedy for the multifarious crisis we have spoken about in this interview?

    We should not imagine a special program that could provide a remedy for the current multi-faceted crisis. We have simply to live our Faith, completely and radically. The Christian virtues are the Faith blossoming in all the human faculties. They mark the way for a happy life in harmony with God. We must create places where they can flourish. I call upon Christians to open oases of freedom in the midst the desert created by rampant profiteering. We must create places where the air is breathable, or simply where the Christian life is possible. Our communities must put God in the center. Amidst the avalanche of lies, we must be able to find places where truth is not only explained but experienced. In a word, we must live the Gospel: not merely thinking about it as a utopia, but living it in a concrete way. The Faith is like a fire, but it has to be burning in order to be transmitted to others. Watch over this sacred fire! Let it be your warmth in the heart of this winter of the West. “If God is for us, who is against us?” (Rom 8:31). In the disaster, confusion, and darkness of our world, we find “the light that shines in the darkness” (cf. Jn 1:5): He who said “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life” (Jn 14:6).

    Spiritually Adopt a Dying Person.
    Apr 11, 2020

    If you would like us to pray for you or your loved one, please leave a message in the comment box on the Contact Page.

    “Gift”

    It is a beautiful gift to desire to spiritually adopt someone who is dying. Recall St. Therese’s Little Way; a desire to serve God in small things done with great love. Her “Little Way” is a gift because it comes from God.

    In the Respect Life ministries, people pray to spiritually adopt an unborn child. I have been thinking about this for several days and recently talked with a friend about how beautiful a gift it is to spiritually adopt a dying person…born or unborn. Today, many people are dying in isolation, separated from loved ones…

    Yesterday, I came across an article about an Irish Priest, Father Philip Kemmy, from St. Eunan’s Cathedral in Donegal. This priest, along with others, are calling for people to spiritually adopt those dying alone, all over the world…

    The article I read online was published in the Irish Central News on March 27, 2020). This article, prompted me to write this post today. You can find the article on the web…it’s extremely moving.

    I am sure there are many of you who will have ideas about what steps, prayers, or other little ways to spiritually adopt the dying? Please feel free to share any suggestions. Since I’m a visual person it’s helpful to me to meditate on a picture of the Divine Mercy.

    Here is a little way to pray for someone who is dying.

    As we pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet, we can begin by meditating on someone who is dying. It may be a loved one in the hospital, that you cannot reach, or if you have the desire in your heart, to pray for someone you do not know.

    We can spiritually adopt a dying person by using the Divine Mercy Chaplet, which is recited on a rosary. Perhaps, at the beginning of the prayer we can say a small petition such as this one, which is just “my personal meditation.”

    Dear Father,

    I ask that my prayers for your Divine Mercy be offered up for someone who is dying alone at this moment (meditate on a picture of the Divine mercy). May your Divine Love protect them and bring them peace. I pray for the families and loved ones who are unable to be at the side of their loved one. May you comfort this dying person in your merciful love and grant them eternal rest.

    Amen

    Divine Mercy Prayer

    You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls, and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world. O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy, envelop the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us.

    O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!

    Our Father
    Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, Amen.

    Hail Mary
    Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen.

    The Apostle’s Creed
    I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, Our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified; died, and was buried. He descended into Hell; the third day He arose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven, sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

    ON THE LARGE BEAD BEFORE EACH DECADE:
    Eternal Father,
    I offer you the Body and Blood,
    Soul and Divinity,
    of Your Dearly Beloved Son,
    Our Lord, Jesus Christ,
    in atonement for our sins
    and those of the whole world.

    ON THE TEN SMALL BEADS OF EACH DECADE OF YOUR ROSARY.
    For the sake of His sorrowful Passion,
    have mercy on us and on the whole world.

    REPEAT 3 TIMES IN CONCLUDING
    Holy God,
    Holy Mighty One,
    Holy Immortal One,
    have mercy on us
    and on the whole world.

    Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.

  11. For those who can stand the truth, instead of hiding behind ‘political correctness’ they should watch this;

    It shows that everywhere Islam has gone, its aggressive destruction of all that is not Islam is complete, and Sharia Law Rules!
    Its not ”Islamophobia”. its concern for everything that is civilised.
