“There will be one flock, one shepherd”

Father Tomislav: Dearest Brothers and Sisters; as title for today’s reflection I have chosen Jesus’ words from the Gospel of John, chapter 10, verse 16: “There will be one flock, one shepherd”. I would like us to understand the path awaiting us well, at least the indications that will help us walk the path to reach the fulfilment of the promises the Lord Jesus made when He came among us, as had been announced by the prophets.

The Christmas feast lies behind us. Let us remember that the Lord visited us and gave us important indications for this year[1] which tell us that there will be many events this year and great graces which will require our full commitment. Lent will soon begin merging with the Easter period, so let us try to live it intensively. I hope you will participate so that all the people are united in contemplation lifting their Spirit up to God in prayer and by offering themselves to ask for blessings.

The profound experiences we have made in these years, leading us towards the recapitulation of the entire universe in Christ, show how God is embracing us through the evangelisation of the entire universe as explained by St. Michael[2] in which only the Earth is missing. This embracement needs to be extended. What is this embracement? It is the Trinitarian power; at the centre of the evangelization are the Only Triune God and the Mother of God, who is perfectly united with the Most Holy Trinity and thus is the Queen of Heaven and Earth. When we live focused on the Triune God through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, our relationship with God deepens with the help of the Immaculate Mother, we reach ever higher dimensions and we are more and more touched by the Trinitarian power.

We will have a look at Jesus’ message of January 7 in which He underlines that the evangelisation of the Earth has to begin, and He highlights that the evangelisation of the Earth must occur in the Trinitarian power in view of the glorious manifestation of the Lord Jesus Christ. Let us listen to this passage.

 “Today your mission, that is, the evangelisation of the Earth begins. It begins on the day you remember My Baptism and on which My great public manifestation and My mission began. Your mission is also a manifestation in front of the whole humanity of the Earth and of the universe at the same time.

The evangelisation of the Earth is more necessary than ever because I will return to this planet and manifest Myself in My Glory. Therefore, the evangelisation of the Earth will conclude the preparation for My coming.

The faithful brothers and sisters have carried out the evangelisation of the rest of the low universe and you have supported them with your prayer and your sacrifice. Now, the contrary has to take place: you have to set off on your mission and the faithful brothers will support you in the manner I will consider necessary for you.”

Who sends us out to evangelise? Jesus Christ in the name of God the Father with the power of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, the first step to understand the evangelisation of the Earth is to welcome the life of the Triune God so that His life descends into us in the way it entered the womb of the Most Holy Mother. The logical consequence is that this life must manifest itself in the Church of God which belongs to Jesus Christ on Earth along with the Church of the entire universe; in this way, it will be welcomed, lived and manifested.

Jesus underlines once more the meaning of welcoming.

“The true evangelisation is the manifestation of the Holy Spirit. He will act in you; therefore, do not start from yourselves but from Me. I am the One who will evangelise the Earth through you in the way I have evangelised the low universe through the faithful brothers. I will act and you will be My instruments; yet, no passive instruments without own will, but docile, open instruments who want to serve Me.”

Then Jesus Christ will be present and act within us. As Christians we remember the testimony of the Evangelists, especially the testimony of Luke in the Acts of the Apostles, how Jesus Christ acted through the Apostles in the power of the Holy Spirit. In these times His manifestation will increase and be felt more because it brings to fulfilment all the promises He has given. For this reason, it is important to understand that we are asked to live an increasingly elevated spirituality to remain in the Holy Spirit united with Jesus Christ and, through Him, with the Father. Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church and dwells among us, and He wants His whole Mystical Body to be mystically united with Him.

Another passage explains that the manifestation of Jesus Christ will not occur only in His person but will be the manifestation of the members of His Mystical Body. The triumphant instruments of the triumphant Church will manifest themselves: the saints, the angels, and also the faithful brothers and sisters. All instruments serving God will manifest themselves, sublime and extraordinary instruments that God has given for this time, and we may welcome them or not. If the Christians fail to understand this point, they cannot understand the Church; they lock themselves up within an earthly shell, and thus the Church of the universe and Paradise remain a mystery to them, open for speculations. Yet, this Church will descend from Heaven[3], as explained in the Revelations, and it must unite with the Church which truly accepts Jesus Christ on Earth.

At this point, all the instruments in the hands of God, all members of the Mystical Body of Christ, will have to manifest themselves. We, Christians of the Earth, also have to reveal all that Jesus Christ has given to us, all that is contained in the mystery of Easter. Here, we have to highlight an essential part of Jesus’ message of 7 January 2018: the importance and necessity of passing through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Let us listen to it:

All this has to take place so that I can return to Earth. St. Michael and his hosts of angels will precede you as he is the precursor, but there is one more important thing for you to understand in this time which is the consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. That is an irreplaceable and indispensable piece of the mosaic of salvation.

Over the centuries many saints affirmed that I came to Earth through Mary the first time and that through Mary I will come for the second time. This is true and it will be like that. Therefore, all the people of God are called to the total consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in this time. I will not come to Earth before Her Immaculate Heart has triumphed in My people. The triumph of the Immaculate Heart of My Mother is the indispensable prelude to My coming. Before the coming of the faithful brothers and sisters it is necessary that the Heart of My Mother triumphs in you.

As we move forward on our path, we have thought about this issue many times. The more we deepen our path, the more we will discover other important dimensions through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

I would like to point out a few aspects: the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is not an indefinite event. It has two levels: firstly, through Her we can be lifted up to immaculate life, which is integrity in God, without which we cannot enter the new creation. So, this is the time in which we walk our path being more and more lifted up into the Immaculate Heart of Mary. As we are immaculate, righteous in Mary, we can communicate with the living true God through Her Heart, as Jesus said: “My Mother and I are one”. Secondly: when we, and the whole people, enter the Immaculate Heart of Mary with the help of all instruments and the whole Mystical of Body of Christ, then we are lifted up into the new creation. In the way as She ascended to Heaven in body and soul, the whole of humanity belonging to Jesus Christ will be lifted up with Her. There where our Mother is we will also be.

Be aware of this point! Today men, unfortunately even the Christians, only consider the Earth a place where we have to survive. The aspect of the Assumption of the Lord and Blessed Virgin Mary to Heaven receive little consideration. These are the times that prepare the whole Mystical Body of Christ of the whole universe to be lifted up. On 10 March, 2014, St. Joseph told us: “Communion with Mary in God is the pathway, and communion with God is the goal.”[4] Do you understand? It is through Her that we reach the Lord Jesus, filled with the Holy Spirit, and with Her, who is in Heaven, through Her Son Jesus Christ, we will be lifted up to the Father.

In His message Jesus says that in Her triumph Our Lady will gather all peoples who belong to Jesus Christ, all children of God. Remember that when the Holy Mother appeared to Stefania last year to begin with the monthly messages, She said that She was the Mother of humanity. The entire humanity has to be recuperated and taken to Jesus Christ through Her intersession and immaculateness. This is the plan of God, the path of salvation. You can discuss about it as much as you want, but that’s the way.

There is another practical, pedagogical and pastoral point. We have entered the time in which all Christians who want to belong to God must reach the real communion with the Mother of God. Those who remains closed within themselves with their experiences, even the mystical ones, delude themselves. All experiences, even the extraordinary ones, lead us to meet the Mother and Queen, to feel as Her children, and then, through Her, we may encounter the Triune God whom She tirelessly announces. No-one shall believe to know God by knowing the whole of Theology, all theories and decrees. The Mother generates the life of God and shows us how to enter into relationship with the source of our salvation and our life.

Jesus has been saying for a long time, for decades, that slowly all the powerful of the Earth will collapse. You may see that especially in the book “L’universo e i suoi abitanti”[5] and in everything Jesus has explained to us. In the end also the False Prophet and the Antichrist will collapse. How? Because Lucifer, who is the Evil as such, corrupts and will be corrupted and countered by his chosen one; he, who has hated and corrupted humanity from the beginning, knows to have entrusted a corrupt man with his power who will oppose him until they will eventually drain each other.

From the Gospel of John, chapter 10, verses 11-16.

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. The hired hand, who is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and runs away—and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. The hired hand runs away because a hired hand does not care for the sheep. I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father. And I lay down my life for the sheep. I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd.“

There are many people who sacrifice their life to destroy it, to confuse the others, and when they say that they give their life, they offer themselves, but Jesus offers the divine life for us, eternal life and all interests. With His body He sacrificed all human interests to express His life in the Holy Spirit, with the Father. He who does not act with Him and submit perfectly to Him will be set aside because the people must have a Shepherd who leads with confidence. See, these are the times in which the Holy Spirit leads us to the Only Shepherd to make us one flock and one Church of Jesus Christ in the entire universe. The true Church of Christ cannot be broken or divided.

You do well to keep your eyes on this path; may all your practices, prayers, offerings and sacrifices help you walk this path and be totally submitted to Jesus Christ, all of you, big and small, so that the Lord may attract all the people to become His Mystical Body. These are no abstract issues. Through the events that are taking place this year you will be able to understand, discern and be directed towards the Only Priest, the High Priest and King of the universe who leads us to God the Father in the Holy Spirit.

And I bless you; may the Trinitarian power descend on all of you; may all the instruments of God be by your side: the angels, the saints, the faithful brothers and sisters; may we all live for each other in Christ in the way all members of the Mystical Body of Christ live for the same body; in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
