Pentecost

Church of Jesus Christ of the Universe

(Translated audio)

We are celebrating the Feast of Pentecost and of the Holy Spirit. In yesterday’s message the Holy Spirit said: “You have reached an important stage.”1

In order to begin to understand the Holy Spirit, I think it would be good to review the whole situation. Jesus says several times: “But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth.”2 He also says: “He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.”3 With this, Jesus also proclaims that the Father is above Him and that the Father is above the Holy Spirit. Jesus says and does what He sees the Father doing4, and so does the Holy Spirit. However, Jesus and the Holy Spirit always do one thing: they help us to know the Father. That is the whole truth when it says: “He will reveal to you what is to come.”5 These words contain the path towards the Father, towards the knowledge of the Father.

In the readings of the past week, of the Gospel, we hear Jesus’ prayer for us that has prepared us for the gift of the Holy Spirit.6 On the other hand, in the book of Acts, we also heard that some, although disciples of Jesus, did not know the Holy Spirit and had not even heard of His existence7. I believe that this is also true today: we know the Holy Spirit by name, but most of us do not know how to understand and participate in His work. Continue reading


Ascension

Church of Jesus Christ of the Universe

27 May 2022

(Translated audio)

The Easter season is about to reach its end; we are between the Feast of the Ascension and Pentecost. I think it is good for us, who have walked a path, to begin to look at these holidays in their fullness, to understand them better, to understand them in all the extent they have.

After the resurrection, the Lord spoke to the Apostles for forty days1, as He is now speaking to us. In His second intermediate coming, He is preparing us for His glorious return.

The feast of the Ascension, like many other feast, is one that Lucifer hates very much, especially because the Ascension reminds us that nothing ends with the resurrection and that it must continue until we, too, go up to heaven. Mary Most Holy did it in fullness; She is the only one, together with Jesus, who also went up with His body; however, each of us is also called to this. The Feast of Pentecost, with the gift of the Holy Spirit, gives all the necessary and extraordinary graces to experience the path from resurrection to ascension. Continue reading


To Be Children of God

Church of Jesus Christ of the Universe

By Mauro

4 January 2021

(Translated audio)

The year 2021 has begun, and it is consecrated to Jesus Christ, High Priest and King of the Universe. Jesus has asked us to consecrate all our actions, thoughts and moments of our life to Him this year.1 Mary Most Holy2, Jesus and many extraordinary instruments3 have prepared us for this year by giving us many clear instructions. It has been announced that it will be an eventful year, in which His people, His Church, the Church of Jesus Christ of the Universe, must express herself more and more.

We can say that, as a people, we have a duty to live as children of God; we are asked to allow Jesus to glorify Himself in us and make us children of God. This is the most basic and deepest meaning of consecrating everything to Him, beginning with ourselves and all our actions, so that He may glorify Himself in us and through us and thereby make us children of God. He wants to do this work in His Church, in all of His people, because this people must be like His Mother, holy and immaculate like Mary Most Holy, generated by Mary and Jesus. Continue reading

Progressing to Be the Light of the Universe – Part 4

Choosing God and Living His Life

By Tomislav Vlašić

14 June 2013

Every step towards God prepares us for a new step. The awareness that God speaks to us and that we can know Him, as we said in the previous article, leads us to a new choice and to a greater fruitfulness in God. We are also helped by the message of St. Clare, which came through Stefania Caterina on 20 May 20131 and has been published on this website. Her message leads us to draw from the source of life. In the meantime, Our Lady has spoken to Stefania on 25 May2, about Her apparitions on Earth, in particular about those in Medjugorje: the apparitions are part of God’s plan to recapitulate in Christ all things in Heaven and on Earth (Eph 1:8-12)”.

In the message of Mary Most Holy, we find important points for our reflection and our decision. Let us highlight some points:

– Our Lady’s apparitions should have progressively led the people, according to their openness, towards the recapitulation of the universe in Christ.

When the action of the extraordinary instruments began (Angels, Central Nucleus, faithful brothers to God) “the final phase of the plan to recapitulate the whole universe in Christ began.”

– “The plan of God will not stop.”

 “God wants the truth about the universe to be revealed since it is, at the same time, the truth about the work of creation, which Satan cannot bear. He cannot bear the existence of faithful men to God who are able to silence him with the power of their spirit. He tries in every way to prevent you from knowing these brothers and sisters and he is afraid of your communion with them.” Continue reading


To Be the Light of the Universe

By Tomislav Vlašić

16 April 2013

Dearest Readers,

On our path, we may experience cloudy, foggy times and confusion. In any case, we have already announced this time to you: a time of wonders and light for whom accepts Jesus Christ and is mystically united with Him through the Immaculate Heart of Mary; a time of suffering and confusion for those who reject Him. Let us reflect together to see where we are now.

By visiting various websites or reading here and there, we find many prophecies for this time and for the future, some of them concern Pope Francis. The prophesies often contradict each other. They often deal with “extraordinary” experiences considered as absolute; attitudes aimed at “dominating” the mystery and assigning God “rules of behaviour”. Many people fly on the wings of emotions and phenomena, but they know neither the cause nor the aim of the phenomena. This is even more dangerous when Christians, who should be the light of the world and the salt of the Earth (Mt 5, 13-14), behave like that.

I would like to give you some points for reflection. Continue reading


“Stand up and lift up your heads …” (Lk 21,28)

By Tomislav Vlašić

13 February 2013

Dearest Readers,

The words of Saint Luke in the title refer to the glorious coming of the Lord. At the same time, they refer to moments of our life, to the history of humankind, to favourable and unfavourable situations. God makes Himself present to those who seek Him. We may enjoy His extraordinary presence and manifest it in these times.

Awareness in faith stimulates the perception of His presence and action in us and around us. Those who have offered their life to Christ, through Mary Most Holy, are already involved in the process of the new creation; they may already notice a transformation in them that does not stop, and nothing can stop it. Living faith takes them to experience this deeply, which also increases their certainty.

We have explained to you that the Trinitarian action will be realised within us through the extraordinary instruments and the entire Mystical Body. This year the Angels and the Saints will be particularly close to us. Of the many experiences we have made, I would like to share particularly one with you one, which may help you participate better in this work of the Lord. Continue reading


Easter Monday

By Father Tomislav Vlašić

18.04.2022

(Translated audio)

Dearest Brothers and Sisters; I would like to emphasize especially that this Easter is a point of arrival and a point of departure. For many Christians it is the point of arrival, but only for few Christians, it is a starting point. It is as if, with the celebration of Jesus’ Resurrection, the path slowed down until it disappears. During Lent, we have prepared ourselves with penance, good works and internal purification, and that is fine, but at Easter, we reach the Lord’s Resurrection when God fulfills everything in us. Just as God worked the Resurrection in Jesus Christ, in the power of the Holy Spirit, so the power of Christ’s Resurrection works in us along our path.

It is therefore very important that all those who follow this path realise that we are at a starting point. It means that we must begin to contemplate God’s action even in dark times, in the provocations of hell, in all the disasters that we see happening on Earth.

Jesus’ Resurrection and His Ascension are His works, which He completed in His person for our benefit, but the corruption in us has not ended yet. Today’s Gospel tells us that Jesus’ Resurrection was denied by the chief priests and elders of the people, even false witnesses were paid to spread lies.[1] Jesus Christ’s Resurrection works salvation on the one hand and judgment, condemnation, on the other. The souls that are open to Christ’s Resurrection and His work in the Spirit follow the path of salvation, the path that leads to the fulfillment of all the promises Jesus made: the promises of God. Those who are closed and deny the power of the Holy Spirit, judge themselves or remain at the level of a superficial spirituality, and thus they are only partially able to understand Christ’s Resurrection.

Happy Easter Triduum

By Father Tomislav Vlašić

14 April 2022

(Translated audio)

Dearest Brothers and Sisters; I am pleased that we are taking part in the same Eucharist, the Lord’s Supper.

I want to introduce you to this day. The Chrism Mass has been celebrated in the morning Mass. It has two meanings: on the one hand, the importance of consecrating the holy oil, the chrism for anointing; on the other hand, our own anointing with holiness because, on this day, all priests renew their promises to the Lord; but all those who take part in the Mass also renew their baptismal promises. The anointing comes down when there is a sincere participation in baptism, in holiness; otherwise, the Holy Spirit cannot confirm our words of renewing our promises.

Let us begin here to enter into this celebration of the Eucharist, the Lord’s Last Supper. This celebration is not a remembrance but a Memorial of what Jesus performed with the Apostles. It is a living Memorial in the present time when Jesus Christ is among us, in the Holy Spirit, in His intermediate coming. It is participation in that grace, not just a remembrance of a message, but something that comes into our consciousness from the cosmic and microcosmic dimension.1 Continue reading


Happy Holy Week

Church of Jesus Christ of the Universe

By Mauro

10 April 2022

Today the Holy Week begins. For forty days, we have prepared ourselves for this passage. It is a passage of resurrection for each one of us, the same passage Jesus went through on the Mount of Olives when He said, “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.”1

In order to be resurrected, each of us must look at death, at the cross in the truth and go through the painful passage. In the truth and in the light God has given to us, we have to know that we must die to ourselves to be resurrected with Christ. For each of us this means that in our spiritual passages, which certainly cannot be compared with those of Jesus, and yet are like His, we must pray, ask for help and go through them alone.

Today’s Feast2 shows the contradiction in the behaviour of the people, who first praised Him and a few days later shouted, “Crucify him!”3 The readings say clearly that Satan sifted them; Jesus said it to Peter, but Satan sifted all of them, the whole of Jerusalem. Then Jesus told Peter, “And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.”4 Yet, it seems that Peter was to be the first to betray Him when he denied knowing Jesus for three times.

What we ought to learn from these teachings is that we must not judge ourselves or the others. Today we may say something against God, against the path, against the community, against everything we reject, shouting, “Crucify him!” Rather, we must allow each of us and others to be resurrected through our passage from death to life.
