Dearest Brothers and Sisters,
Today we will develop the subject of “Our particular participation in the evangelisation of the low universe”, in other words, our basic participation in it. The last time we spoke about the faithful brothers and sisters and the evangelisation they carry out. Previously, we have also looked at the action of the angels; united with the faithful brothers they are a great power. Today we would like to understand what the specific response of the believers on the Earth ought to be in Jesus Christ in order to enhance the evangelisation in the whole universe, and that of the faithful brothers and sisters as well as that of the angels. Hence, we will listen to a passage of the book “The Universe and Its Inhabitants”.
We will read the passage on page 197.
The faithful humanities and the Church of the Earth
After the visit of Jesus a new phase of the history of the humanities of the high universe began: from that moment on they would be at the service of Jesus Christ in order to extend the Kingdom of God proclaimed by Jesus throughout the universe. As always, they would act together with the hosts of angels headed by St. Michael, the Archangel.
The faithful humanities would have worked with the Church of the Earth, which was called to evangelize the whole universe, on a special mandate of Jesus Christ. The Lord Jesus knew very well that such an undertaking would not have been possible for the Church of the Earth without the faithful brothers who had always travelled the universe with their powerful space vehicles. Therefore, the first task Jesus entrusted to these humanities was to visit the Church of the Earth to help the Christians in their mission.
After preparing themselves for their mission, the faithful brothers and sister to God set off for planet Earth exactly as once their ancestors had done. This time they would not have encountered primitive men who were unable to speak, but men who had been chosen by God to be testimonies of the most extraordinary events of history: the birth of Jesus, His death and resurrection. Privileged persons who had lived with Jesus, Man and God, and had heard Him preach and had witnessed His miracles. They were persons who lived on a planet that was dominated by Lucifer, and who were ready to give their life for their love of God. To the eyes of the faithful brothers and sisters they were noble people.
The faithful humanities regularly meet Jesus and listen to His word; they are fully aware of His divinity and power. Nevertheless, they have profound admiration and esteem for the saints of the Earth who apparently seem weaker than them. Why? Because the saints of the Earth bravely fight a battle against evil to keep and increase their faith; they suffer torments in body and soul to bear witness of their faith in God and in Jesus, the Son of God. They are similar to Jesus since they experience in a particular way the dimension of the “redemptive suffering”. The saints of the Earth have suffered and offered their pain to the Father in union with the sacrifice of Christ in the Holy Spirit, incessantly retracing the Paschal passage of Christ from death to resurrection along the centuries. This is the great testimony of the Church of the Earth to the entire universe, the force that emanates from the Earth especially during the Eucharistic celebration, memorial of the death and resurrection of Christ. When the Holy Mass is celebrated with active participation and offered by the priest and the people, it releases enormous power that pours out into the whole universe. Living your suffering for Christ’s sake, united to His Eucharistic Sacrifice makes you noble in the eyes of the faithful humanities and worthy of great respect. Your full devotion to Christ and your faithfulness to Him, even in the midst of all the difficulties of your planet, are the fundamental task of the Christians of the Earth, which the faithful humanities cannot fulfil since they do not know the dimension of the salvific suffering. In fact, their human life has never been touched by original sin. Their participation to the life of Jesus and His mission is mainly characterized by their dimension of force and power, which connects them to the resurrection of Jesus, whereas your suffering connects you to His Passion. Therefore, your pathway and theirs are complementary to each other until everyone manifests the life of God: at the end of times the humanity who will be judged worthy will enter the new creation where there will be no more suffering. There the children of God will shine like the sun in the Kingdom of God, the Father, (Mt 13:43) and will be filled with grace, force and beauty. For now, suffering still reigns on Earth and on many other planets, but that will not last forever. Those of you who suffer for the love of Christ shall know that they are very close to His Heart; their suffering will not be wasted but shine like a pearl of inestimable value to the eyes of God in favour of every creature. The humanities faithful to God understand all this and are close to the true Christians of the Earth with their love and prayer.
The question that is repeatedly asked on the Earth is: why is there suffering on the Earth? Why are we set in a dimension of suffering? The answer is that the humanity of the Earth rebelled against God in the beginning and made an alliance with Lucifer. Then another sin was committed that was of equal importance: the major part of the humanity of the Earth refused Jesus Christ. You may see how many Christians are indifferent to Jesus Christ, how many are Christians just out of habit and not out of real participation in the life of Christ. It is God’s justice because we bear the consequences of the sins of the ancestors of the humanity of the Earth, but we also own the grace given to us in the name of Jesus Christ to be able of face suffering, death and Lucifer.
When we speak about the cross, only few understand. The faithful brothers and sisters do not experience pain; for them death is like falling asleep. We experience pain from the moment of conception, especially from the moment of birth, and we experience physical. Jesus has opened the way and given the humanity of the Earth the opportunity to get out of the tunnel. In this perspective suffering will not bend us. We have received the grace to face suffering; hence suffering does not dominate us; suffering is like a cross through which we are elevated to God in the way Jesus Christ was elevated to God the Father and has elevated our human nature to the Father.
The foundation of our faith lies in the apostles; we clearly see in the apostles the way towards the participation in the redemption, in the Passion, in Christ’s death and the acceptance of it in their heart to experience the resurrection. Out of the resurrection of the man inwardly risen the extraordinary power of Pentecost is released. Thus the apostles were sent to evangelise with the power of the Holy Spirit and to heal, to cast out demons, to resuscitate the dead.
There is a close connection between the Passion, death and resurrection. In this regard we have to understand also the Scriptures that speak about this subject. Let us try to find the light in us: the lived Eucharist is the source of the resurrection. The Pascal passage accomplished by Jesus, and afterwards by the apostles with Him, is the way towards healing, towards resurrection and towards the Trinitarian power in the Christians which enables them to face Lucifer, Satan, evil and to face death and to defeat it. By going along this way they unite with the source that is God who is the source of life, and they will defeat evil and death.
It is very important to look at the Scriptures. We find an exceptional point in St. Paul. He has given testimony in his message; from other messages we have learned that he visited many planets. He said that he had been in Paradise, the third heaven. Yet, when he speaks about extraordinary experiences he says: “It is necessary to boast”, and then he explains how he had to immerse himself into suffering to find the omnipotence of God. I quote (2 Cor 12): “I will go on to visions and revelations of the Lord. Therefore, to keep me from being too elated, a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to torment me, to keep me from being too elated. Three times I appealed to the Lord about this, that it would leave me, but he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.” So, I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities for the sake of Christ; for whenever I am weak, then I am strong.”
Let us dwell on these words: “My power is made perfect in weakness”. Jesus was weak on the cross so much that He handed over His Spirit to the Father; every power ended when He was laid down into the tomb; and yet, there the Trinitarian omnipotence manifested itself and He rose. This gives each one of us an indication. No disease is defeated if we do not get to the primary energy – I use this physical term that we have explained in the beginning of the book “The Universe and Its Inhabitants”. This energy is abundantly present in us; it is clean, endless, free of charge and gushes out of each one of us through Jesus Christ. It has been given to us to elevate us and to elevate others who are of good will through our Christian mission on the Earth. This is the meaning of the beatitudes. This energy, which we will call primary energy, develops within those who are poor in spirit, totally focused on the laws of the pure Spirit and who do not allow any persecutions, disturbances, problems to distract them from that relationship with the source of life. For this reason Paul boasts of the cross, only the cross, because what happens through the cross? By accepting the cross one dies to himself to live for Christ, with Christ and in Christ already on Earth. This is the first victory; our spirit becomes free, powerful and blameless. St. Paul calls it “the new creature” and we speak about the new creation; it is not a poetic term – everyone can experience it. Padre Pio was on the cross for 50 years, crucified; he experienced this extraordinary power and you see today how this extraordinary power attracts us and how it affects our souls. It is impossible to become a new creature without the death of the old; the cross kills the old one when we strip ourselves of everything, when we choose the love of God in every trial. This is the meaning of the words of St. Paul in the letter to the Romans: “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?” No creature or situation, no death or anyone. This decision transforms everyone of us into a new creature. On one occasion we have quoted the message of Our Lady “The power of the cross”, where She gives testimony of Her being immaculate from conception and that She received the mission to be the Mother of God, the Mother of the Son of God, offering herself at the foot of the cross, right where Her Son was, offering herself to the Father, to His will. In Her all the gifts of God and all the potential of the soul burst out; Her maternity burst out and She tells us: “The same is valid for you too, when you offer yourselves at the foot of the cross – the daily cross – to lift yourselves up to God in order to participate in His life”, despite the difficulties we have on Earth and that we all have; then this power is released and all the potential that God has put in our soul is awakened; this is the beginning of our mission and the evangelisation will set off.
In these times it is often said that the sense of sin has been lost. Some say that it is democratic to sin; each person can choose what he or she wants. Unfortunately, it is said that we can choose the God we want to belong to. We belong to the God of Jesus Christ, the One and Triune God. Once the sense of sin is lost, automatically the sense of reparation against sin is lost. Pope Benedict XVI has particularly underlined that today atonement is missing; in the Eucharistic aspect atonement is not given adequate importance by the Church, by humanity, as it is rather perceived as a dinner table. We have reached Eucharistic consumerism. Thus we have to change course if we want to take part in the evangelisation of the low universe.
St. Paul’s approach to leave everything behind hurrying to participate in the Passion, in Christ’s death, and reach the power of His resurrection, which he specially underlined in the letter to Ephesians, turns into a mission. He says: “Now I rejoice in what I am suffering for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ’s afflictions, for the sake of his body, which is the church. I have become its servant by the commission God gave me to present to you the word of God in its fullness — the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the Lord’s people.”
As you may have noticed in St. Paul, this kind of reflection appears repeatedly; once he boasts to belong to Israel and its traditions, then he goes on boasting about having made these very special experiences of visiting different planets and having been in heaven. This is a warning to all of us on the Earth that we should not close ourselves in our charismatic experiences. They may only be useful and give a great contribution when we die to ourselves and let God develop our potential, when instead of the wind of our selfishness the wind of the pure Spirit of God blows. We must be careful about this in these times because the Christians too will be tried in the time of the False Prophet and the Antichrist. The new people need to understand the transition.
Nowadays we have the idea that if we practice charity for our brothers and sisters we are good Christians: when we give clothing, bread and necessary things. Yet, I invite you to practice charity in Christ, that is, to give the bread of life to the spirit of man, of mankind; that charity of Christ that nourishes the soul and the spirit. If we remain exclusively on the social level, we will remain superficial, as has already been said many times, similar to the humanitarian organisations. Humanity needs the power of the Holy Spirit within us to defeat the spirit of evil; only the Spirit of Christ, dead and risen, who has given us the Holy Spirit – if we participate in His Passion, in His death – we will defeat the spirit of evil within us.
In that case our relationship with the faithful brothers and sisters will be an embrace, and we will complement each other. How many times have they expressed their opinion on how strong we are; they see how we struggle to be faithful to Christ, and they admire us because they lack this experience. In the way Jesus Christ has removed sin amidst of us, we are called to remove sin from ourselves by defeating evil, sin, the corruption of the spirit; this is our biggest contribution to the evangelisation of the low universe and of the whole universe.
I have chosen this subject especially because tomorrow Lent begins for the Christians of the Earth. Lent, penance and prayer achieve their real effect when we are able to elevate our suffering to God; otherwise we become like the earth suffocated by garbage, by toxic waste which cannot be removed and increases instead. When we offer our sufferings to God they become luminous; they become salvific sufferings arousing new strength in us, and we take part in the resurrection of Christ. In this sense, through our openness we participate fully in the universal communion, and the faithful brothers and sisters, the angels and saints who express this universal communion, as the souls in Purgatory too, help us and we help them.
I bless you; may the light that comes from the crucified Christ, from His cross, from the Risen Christ who has taken away the darkness of the souls, the apostles and the disciples penetrate you in this time; may it give you relief from worries and free you from the trends of this world and from the oblivion of Christ. That Light may liberate and deeply penetrate us so that we begin to live like new Christians as we watch these times that will lead us to fullness, to the new creation, not only in spirit but through the resurrection of our bodies; in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
