You Are the Apostles of Your Time

Message of Jesus – Baptism of the Lord

You Are the Apostles of Your Time

 

“My dear children,

It is right that I bless you today because you want to renew the promises of your baptism. Every time you do this your mission starts again from the beginning. Renewing the promises of baptism means to renew your whole spiritual life; your life in God is renewed and the strength of your mission is renewed; your Yes to God is renewed.

Children, your yes must be continuously renewed because the world and the spirit of the world want to suffocate it. The Holy Spirit intercedes for you, though. He is the Defender who defends you from evil and always enables you to renew your yes. Hence, on this day I bless you, and I bless your mission so that it is renewed in spirit and force.

In the past year we have walked together intensively. I had to prepare you for this time, and today I send you out, on the day you celebrate My Baptism because with My Baptism My public mission began. The Spirit descended on Me and everyone could hear the voice of the Father.[1] Today I renew all the gifts I have given you from the moment of your Baptism up to now.

From today’s first reading you have understood the mission of the prophet Isaiah.[2] It is also the mission of each one of you: you are all prophets, apostles and ministers of My Salvation. I have anointed you so that you bring My Life to the world. When I say world, I mean the entire universe but, first of all, the Earth because it is here I called you to live. I love this Earth and this humanity even though this humanity does not love Me. I came down to the Earth to love you and to teach you to love. Many have refused Me and continue to refuse Me; however, I will continue to love My children of the Earth through you. You will be My Love. Your hands will be My hands and you will lay them on the pains of this humanity. You will be My eyes to see and discern the light from the darkness and to show the path of the light to many. You will be My heart to love, and you will also be My wounded heart, pierced for this humanity and for all rebellious children of the universe.

Go with all My strength and I will always accompany you. I say to you what I said to the apostles: “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.“[3] The Father loves you because you love Me. The Holy Spirit loves you because you love Me. I love you because you are My children, My People and because I have redeemed you.

You are the apostles of your time, profoundly united to the Central Nucleus and the Apostolic College of this time. You are all apostles, but, first of all, you are My disciples. A disciple is someone who learns from his Master; hence, I tell you: “Learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart.“[4] Now more than ever I repeat what I said to the apostles and disciples: “I am sending you out like lambs among wolves.”[5] Yet, I will not send you alone, and the wolf will not be able to do anything to you; the thief of souls will not steal you; no one will snatch you from My hands.

Go, My children, in My Name. You shall speak about Me to all those who await Me. I will be with you until the end of the days. I love you, I bless you and I protect you, in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”
