The Great Testimony of Jesus

Letter to the People of God

8 January 2023, Baptism of the Lord

The Great Testimony of Jesus

Dear Brothers and Sister,

We have entered the third year of JESUS’ INTERMEDIATE PRESENCE on Earth. Our Lady announced His particular presence in spirit to us in Her message of 7 December 2020[1], to which we refer.[2]

For the year 2023, we wish you all and us to enter into a full and authentic communion with Jesus, with His life and work, in favour of the Earth and the whole Universe. Those of you who have followed these programmes and walked with us have been able to broaden their view on the Universe and the dynamism of its history. In all these years, we have always tried to show you the simple and luminous road that leads to the glorious future of humanity, which necessarily passes through the RECAPITULATION OF THE WHOLE UNIVERSE IN CHRIST.[3] In this way, in silence and prayer, you could develop your own way of thinking and make your choices.

In the past time, we have seen how many events have overlapped on Earth, and now it is time to give answers to God. It is necessary to bear witness to the work that the Father is accomplishing through His Son Jesus Christ, in the power of the Holy Spirit, through the “Church of Jesus Christ of the Universe”, the one that is present on Earth and the one that descends from Heaven.

Saturday, Eve of the Baptism of the Lord

Church of Jesus Christ of the Universe

By Mauro

7 January 2023

Second Week of the Christmas season – Saturday, Eve of the Baptism of the Lord
1 Jn 3,22-4,6; Ps 2; Mt 4, 12-17.23-25

With tomorrow’s feast, the Christmas season ends, and with His Baptism, Jesus Christ begins His public life and preaching.

Jesus, who was born under the law, came to redeem those who are under the law to fulfil the law. If we look at all the sacraments, we see that Baptism existed even before Jesus. Jesus elevated them to their spiritual value. He raised them from a purely ritual dimension to the value and grace of the Spirit that initiates the life of God in man. Jesus came precisely to break the barrier between God and man, which prevented man from awakening in himself the Holy Spirit he had received from conception, as well as other gifts. After Him, Christians were baptised in Him, washed by Him, washed by His Blood and become the Body of Christ, parts of the body of Christ.

He came to fulfil the law, but we can see that throughout the history of salvation, from creation onwards, the whole project that involved God’s action, man’s action, was there; it is the action of God who always seeks man with all the instruments He has tried. We have been well instructed on this through the book, “The Universe and Its Inhabitants”.[1]

That fullness of action must come with His glorious return; however, we have progressed very much in the last two centuries, especially in this last one. We see how time runs fast towards the achievement of this fullness. Many things have been revealed and explained, which previously had only been lived by faith. There is nothing new, but all we have received has also brought fulfilment. It has not changed but realised many things. Continue reading


The Holy Family of Nazareth

Church of Jesus Christ of the Universe

30 December 2022
Sir 3, 3-7.14-17; Ps 127; Col 3,12-21; Mt 2,13-15.19-23 (Cycle A)

Message of St. Joseph of 18 March 2021, “Mary, the New Woman”,
published in the book “Towards the New Creation – Vol. XIII – Collected Messages 2021”, Luci dell’Esodo, p. 28

Happy feast to you all! Today we celebrate the Holy Family of Nazareth. We know that the Holy Family of Nazareth is the first cell of the Church. We have a message of St. Joseph, in which he explains it clearly; we will listen to it later.

It is beautiful to see how the first cell of the Church was directly guided by God’s hand through His Archangels. The Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Joseph were gradually guided and prepared for their task to which the Mary Most Holy and St. Joseph had already said ‘yes’ at the moment of their conception; yet, it had to reawaken in them, and in this awakening, they were steadily guided. The Lord guided them through dreams, the presence of the Angels and the faithful brothers and sisters. Later, Jesus instructed them personally.

However, do not forget that the Lord guides each one of us. Do not think that the only way the Lord uses to guide us is through dreams. God knows how to guide each one of us, and He guides us according to our tasks. The way He always uses, the first method, the one He prefers, which guarantees never to make mistakes, is communion. St. Paul explains it very well to the Collossians.[1] Continue reading


Saturday 24 December 2022 – Fourth Week of Advent

Church of Jesus Christ of the Universe

By Mauro

2 Sam 7, 1-5.8-11.16; Ps 88; Lk 1, 67-79

We know that every feast, every solemnity, brings special, extraordinary graces with it. I think that today we must unite in a more particular way with Mary Most Holy, Saint Joseph and, I think, with the shepherds in order to experience these graces fully.

Imagine what it means to Mary Most Holy and St. Joseph to remember that time. I like the idea of them, in Heaven, talking about what that Night meant to them, what they felt when they welcomed the Son of God. What an incredible event it must have been for the shepherds when they saw the Archangels and afterwards found a child as a sign. Therefore, if we want these special graces to be imprinted on us and to work in us, then let us join in Mary and Joseph and listen to them so that they may tell us what Jesus’ birth meant to them.

It is undeniable that during Christmas time, all humanity, at least the believers, have a greater openness. They are all much more available, and they seem open. For me, the trouble is that we do not remain on that level, in that dimension after Christmas but return what we were before. Therefore, I ask again: how can we ensure that these graces remain within us, increase and bear fruit? Continue reading


Christmas with Jesus

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

As the great Christmas solemnities are coming near, we would like to send you our thoughts and our sincere good wishes.

The situation of the Earth in these times is before our eyes: a large part of humanity is confused, lost and gripped by fear. Unable to see the future, people simply try to survive, and thereby close themselves more and more into themselves, into rebellion against God and into an attitude of intolerance towards everything and everyone.

Nevertheless, we know that the Lord is present in His INTERMEDIATE COMING, as has been revealed to us. We believe in His presence and that of His Mother among us. The glory of the Lord is growing day by day, although it may seem to many that the opposite is the case. We are witnesses, and we affirm that the Lord, together with the extraordinary instruments and His Church of the whole Universe, is fighting the great final battle against the forces of evil. As we have long been foretold, this battle is taking place on Earth, where Lucifer has consolidated his power. The reaction of the devil and his followers to all this is clearly visible. It seems that no political or religious authority is able to put an end to the tribulations of our humanity, but we believe that the Saviour is among us to open the way for us, to prepare us for victory and to bring His Light into the darkness of the world.

This is still the time of struggle and trials for God’s people and for all of us who have decided to accept and live these programmes. We stand by Jesus in the fight against Evil, and the Emmanuel, God with us, frees us from anguish and loneliness. He makes us live and not just survive, and we are not afraid. As the prophet Isaiah reminds us: “For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed, says the Lord, who has compassion on you” (Isa 54,10 NRSVCE).

Therefore, the prophet, addressing to the people, further says: “Enlarge the site of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; do not hold back; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes. For you will spread out to the right and to the left, and your descendants will possess the nations and will settle the desolate towns” (Isa 54,2-3).

These prophetic words fill us with hope but also remind us of the need to live as new human beings, repelling dark thoughts, the presumption of self-sufficiency, the withdrawal into our little shell and the condemnation of ourselves and others. The Lord saves tax collectors and prostitutes, all those judged unworthy by “respectable people”, but annuls the pride of the Pharisees and doctors of the law.[1] “Only in the Lord, it shall be said of me, are righteousness and strength; all who were incensed against him shall come to him and be ashamed” (Isa 45,24).

In this Holy Christmas, filled with the presence of Jesus, in humble and faithful silence before Him, let us immerse ourselves in the enormous grace that is bestowed upon us in this time, which can open us to the mystery of the Lord’s Life and Salvation. In all these years, we have shown you a simple path, illuminated by the presence of the Saviour, to know the mystery of our glorious destiny: the offering of our life to Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Only by following this path will we be mystically united with the glorious Christ, present in our midst, and will we know a glorious future. The Apostle John confirms this with his testimony:

“The mystical union with Jesus Christ is the basis of all knowledge. Without communion with Jesus, there is no communion even with the Father and there is less openness to the action of the Holy Spirit. In fact, the Father sends the Holy Spirit in Jesus’ name, by virtue of His Sacrifice. The Holy Spirit acts to create an indelible communion between us and Jesus Christ, who unites us with the Father in the Holy Spirit. The foundation of true knowledge of ourselves and of others, as well as any situation, that is, the knowledge of the laws of life, is found only in the mystical union with Jesus. I have spoken to you about the communion with the Father and the Son, and I told you that my hands touched the Word of life.[2] It was not just a saying or a poetic image, but the testimony of the life we Apostles lived with Christ as well as my personal relationship with the Master.“[3]

In the silence to which the Lord calls us in this time, which is necessary to carry out our service, we constantly remember you in our prayers. We are grateful to God and to the heavenly Mother for your response and for your path, which make all of you an ever more concrete and visible sign of God’s Love for this humanity. We wish you to perceive the presence of the Lord ever more deeply inside you so that this may be a Christmas with Jesus, within the Hearts of the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Joseph. We embrace you fraternally, and we bless you, wishing you all and your families all the best.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Fourth Sunday of Advent

Church of Jesus Christ of the Universe

By Mauro

17 November 2022

Fourth Sunday of Advent
Is 7, 10-14; Ps 23; Rom 1, 1-7; Mt 1, 18-24
(Translated audio)

 

With the readings of the fourth Sunday of Advent, we enter the last week before Christmas. The readings of the last few days, repeatedly spoke of John the Baptist.[1] Today’s readings speak of St. Joseph and St. Paul, showing the attitudes of these figures.

Jesus defines John the Baptist with these words: “I tell you, among those born of women there is no one greater than John; yet the one who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.”[2] John the Baptist recognised Jesus already when he was in his mother’s womb: when Elizabeth met Holy Mary, she felt that he leaped. With that leap in her womb, John the Baptist became a prophet since he led Elizabeth to say: “Why am I so favoured, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?” (Lk 1,43). John the Baptist announced the presence of Jesus to his mother. Then, the Gospel says: “Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit“ (Lk 1,41).[3] We may see the greatness of a soul, who has already given his response to God, his “yes”, in the maternal womb. At that moment, the action of the Holy Spirit, who became the central actor, began. Among Holy Mary, Jesus, Elizabeth and John the Baptist, the Holy Spirit was the central actor. Mary said the “Magnificat”[4] and Elizabeth the words I have just said. This is the concrete proof of Jesus’ words: “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them“ (Mt 18,20). This also happens now. When two or three are in the same spirit, in their response to God, the Holy Spirit must intervene; He becomes the central actor and touches every man and every woman.

“Preparing for Holy Christmas”

Church of Jesus Christ of the Universe

By Stefania Caterina and Fr. Tomislav Vlašić

30 November 2017

(Translated audio)

Father Tomislav: Dearest Brothers and Sisters; this week is dedicated to Christ the King and takes us directly to Advent when we prepare for the coming of little Jesus, who is Christ the Redeemer. We say “little Jesus” because we have to bow down to Him so that we may feel in our heart the divine impulses that have to arise and mature so that we can reach the new the Heavens and the new Earth: the new creation.

During Advent, the Immaculate Mother is the morning star that opens new spaces before us. Therefore, for our reflection on Advent I have chosen a text that will accompany us in a concrete way towards understanding the times we are living in.

Stefania Caterina: We will read out a passage of Our Lady’s message of 15 August 2013[1]

“My immaculateness is an utterly special privilege, and it is bound to My divine Motherhood; nevertheless, all of you are called to immaculateness. All your spiritual path must tend to the progressive purification from sin and corruption until you reach the state of immaculateness through which you become partakers of the divine grace and worthy of belonging to the new humanity. The entire human race in the universe will have to reach this state of purity in order to enter the new creation: the new human being will be immaculate and so will the new humanity.

Our Blessed Lady triumphes in those who offer themselves to God

(taken from “Beyond the Great Barrier”, chapter 2, p. 52; Luci dell’Esodo)

Message of Mary Most Holy of 25 March 2003

“I bless you, my dear children, on this day that is particularly dear to me. I have come to remind you that your duty is to announce Trinitarian life to the world; the life of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. It was pulsating in my heart, in the heart of my spouse Joseph. It was alive in the house in Nazareth. In order for your annunciation to be effective and authentic, you must firstly welcome it with a clear, immaculate heart, as I have done. The annunciation of Trinitarian life cannot descend into a dirty heart, into a soul brimming with interests. You must strip yourselves more and more of all interests outside of the glory of God, otherwise the annunciation cannot become rooted in you. It remains abstract, it can touch you but not transform you.

The annunciation of Trinitarian life must transform you day by day. You can no longer be the same if you have received this annunciation, as occurred for me; not only because I became pregnant, but because my whole life changed within me. After the annunciation of the archangel, my whole personal life developed, my life with Jesus and through Him, my life with the Father in the Holy Spirit. This was followed by other events in my life, such as the presentation of Jesus at the temple, his death and resurrection, all associated with the initial moment of the annunciation. At that moment in fact, due to my immaculate nature, I already knew that I did not possess the fruit of my breast. This became even clearer to me at the time of the presentation of Jesus at the temple. Here I delivered Jesus to the Father, renouncing all rights over Him.

I would like to say this to you: if you are immaculate, you cannot claim any right over Jesus. You cannot possess him, because, if you truly love him, it is He who possesses you. You can only possess God through love, never out of interest or ambition, because God does not allow himself to be trapped by your interests and your ambitions. And so, do not try to possess or manipulate God’s life. It only belongs to you when you love it, respect it and welcome it. The words of the archangel Gabriel were clear: Jesus was the Son of the Most High, He was not mine. This is also valid for you. Jesus passes through you, He loves you, He transforms you, but you cannot capture Him in your nets. Continue reading


Life Without God Is Not Life

(taken from “Life Without God Is Not Life – Messages of the Mother of Humanity to Stefania Caterina”, p. 25, Luci dell’Esodo)

Message of the Mother of Humanity of 13 November 2017

“My Dear Children,

Today I want to tell you that LIFE WITHOUT GOD IS NOT LIFE. If you leave God outside of your existence, you do not live, but you limit yourselves to surviving. Only God gives a meaning to your existence because only in Him do you understand who you are, where you come from and towards what you are going.

You are children of God, and it is the Holy Spirit who reveals that to you. When you are born, you are immediately able to recognise the love of your mother and to love her. Who taught you to love and to feel loved? God, who is Love. And because you are created in His image and likeness you are called to love. Therefore, the Holy Spirit speaks to your spirit and instructs it; slowly and gradually He reveals you the existence and the action of God in you and leads you to perceive a higher Love, which fills your life beyond your merits and imperfections. In this way, you become able to believe in God, to love and feel loved.

Unfortunately, this is not the case for everyone. Many of you, as you grow up, forget the Love that has created you, and you never start to believe in God. This may be caused by the environment, the circumstances or the personal choices. Thus, the love for the One and Triune God is replaced by other kinds of love and idols before which a large part of your humanity prostrates itself in these times.

Children, outside of the true God you are lost and you no longer know who you are. […]”

Accompanying the Lord

34th Week of Ordinary Time – Cycle II
Rev 22, 1-7; Ps 94; Lk 21, 34-36

(Translated audio)

Tomorrow the Advent season begins, and Advent is always a time of hope, a time of waiting and a time that gives us profound joy. It is interesting to see that, until today, all readings focused on the end times, on all that prepares the glorious return of Christ. Then, all of a sudden, we have moved on to this time of waiting and hope.

The whole cycle of readings has made us walk forward; the Word of God has become ever clearer to us and God’s thoughts have awakened more and more in us since the Word of God has the power to do this. However, it is a power that acts to the extent that we are open to accepting it, to the extent we place the Kingdom of God and His justice at the centre of our life.

During Advent, we expect the Messiah. Two thousand years ago, people were waiting for the Messiah; they knew that He was the One who would pave the way and free the people. By some He was awaited in the right way, by others according to their own ideas; however, we may see that after two thousand years, history is still at the same crossroads. The Messiah has come; Jesus Christ has paved the way; sin and death have been defeated. The hope for the coming of the Messiah that people had two thousand years ago must now have another meaning: now, that hope has become a certainty. Now, Christians should not announce the expectation of the Messiah to the world as two thousand years ago, but the living presence of Christ. They should proclaim all He has done in these two thousand years and His glorious return. They should be bearers of hope in a hopeless world. Yet, I do not think this is happening. Continue reading
