“Lord, I seek your face”

16 March 2019

By Stefania Caterina and Fr Tomislav Vlašić


Father Tomislav: Dearest Brothers and Sisters; we have already begun Lent with the first Sunday in which we have reflected on the aspect that we expect trials to happen for our growth, our mission and our elevation because trials help our elevation.

The topic of today’s reflection is “We seek your face, Lord”. Right at the beginning I want to underline that we cannot seek the face of the Lord when we are still and motionless. To seek the Lord, to seek His face, means to walk our path, be committed, take responsibility and participate in the elevation that the Lord brings about as He attracts us with His face.

In the Liturgy of the second Sunday of Lent[1] we can see how the face of the Lord manifested itself in the history of salvation: God is God; His face has always been bent over us, but the fallen humanity that moved away from Him has not perceived His face. In the first reading we are told Abraham’s experience of faith; he welcomes the presence of God and His face, and in the alliance with him God leaves a sign for his faith.

We can say that after the whole journey of the Old Testament, that is, Moses, the prophets, etc., who have prepared the new times, the face of the Lord appeared. First, the apostles saw Him as a man, and then Peter, James and John saw His transfiguration[2], the way He is in God. This vision illuminated the resurrection and the events of the end of times. Now Jesus sits face to face to the Father: “I and the Father are one” (John 10,30). “Whatever the Father does the Son also does“ [John 5,19). He looks at the invisible God, as God is pure Spirit, and now opens the way for us so that we can walk that path to the place where the Son, Jesus Christ, is, and through Him begin to participate, see and contemplate the face of God who will be in the new creation at the end of times.

Our reflection is centred on the power of the victory of Christ over death, on sin and His elevation. The Church of the universe expects the Christians of the Earth to give this testimony, to renounce the alliance with Lucifer and sin, to defeat Lucifer and defeat sin through Jesus Christ, to rise within, to move towards our elevation and our glory. “Defeat death” and “rise”, are generally used words, but very rarely it is said that we must elevate ourselves, rise up. We are living in the times in which the dynamic of grace is acting.

From here the best indication is the Mother of God and how She contemplated the face of God from the moment of Her conception; then She contemplated the Son whom She conceived through the Holy Spirit, experiencing that in the life of Jesus a glimpse of the Life of God appears. Let us remember the suffering of Mary and Joseph when Jesus couldn’t be found and they looked for Him in the temple. Mary participated fully in the sacrifice of Christ and in His victory; she rose within herself, and when She gave Her testimony, all Her gifts burst out. We know that Our Lady remained among the disciples because it was necessary that She stayed to accomplish her mission as Mother of the apostles; then She was also taken to heaven and lives in the Most Holy Trinity. Let us listen:

 “My dear Children,

WITH THIS MESSAGE I CONCLUDE MY CONVERSATION WITH YOU. It is time for you to walk with your own legs, after the many words I have addressed to you over time. I have always spoken to you and I did it in many ways, trying to remind you that God is the centre of your life and of the whole history. Through My apparitions in many places of the Earth I have shown you My face and I have held out My hand to you. Now I withdraw and return to the Most Holy Trinity in whom I live and from where I have come to intercede as Mother for all My children.

Time is getting short, children, as My Son is about to come back in His glory. He will manifest Himself to the whole universe and no one will be able to say that God does not exist. Everyone will see Him but not all will welcome Him. He will separate the children of the Light from the children of the darkness. Only the Father knows when this will take place but you can already sense that times are changing.”

I want to highlight this message of 13 December 2018, which is the final message: “You must walk with your own legs”, which means that we have received everything and now the universe expects us to respond responsibly on our path.

“Now I withdraw and return to the Most Holy Trinity.” The instruments of God withdraw to take the position from which they can do their utmost. Each is placed in the Trinitarian vortex; the Mother of God is in the Most Holy Trinity to intercede continuously; St. Joseph is in the dimension of pure Spirit and so are the Archangels and the angels; the faithful brothers are marching ever higher. All this power is communicated to us if we want to be in communion with them, and we are enabled to carry out our service and walk our path here on earth to accomplish what we are asked to do.

At this point we are called to experience the enormous power of the Risen Christ, the victor.  As you know, St. Peter resisted the prospect of Jesus’ death. All apostles resisted the humiliation of the Saviour because that would have humiliated them, too. They were not meant to be proud and expect a magic salvation, but they had to participate fully in the events and experience the resurrection by touching the Risen Christ, speak to Him, eat with Him, which they could not do in the vision on Mount Tabor.

We can also add the experience of St. Paul. Saul, who used to observe even the commas of the Old Testament, encountered the Risen Christ, and that power transformed him thoroughly, enabling him to testify to the people so they too would be elevated. These are the times in which the humanity of the Earth, the Church of the Earth that belongs to the Church of Jesus Christ of the whole universe, that is, those who want to participate in the life of Christ, experience this power.

 “Lucifer’s action is strengthening day by day. The Antichrist and the False Prophet are at work to seduce humanity and drag it, through violence and deception, towards the abyss. Man and nature are, and will be, more and more distressed. In vane people seek the help of scientists, theologians and magicians, for salvation only comes from the Most Holy Trinity through My Son, Jesus Christ.

Only Jesus is the Saviour; by refusing Him, you refuse Salvation. Children, I want to recall you to the essence of the Christian life, that is, the faith in Jesus Christ, Son of God, His birth, death, resurrection and ascension to Heaven, where He sits at the right hand side of the Father. Jesus is High Priest and King of the Universe. Before Him all will have to bow their heads whether they like it or not.” (Phil 2,9-11)

People are afraid of the Antichrist and the False Prophet and of the times we are going through. For you who participate in the Church of Jesus Christ of the whole universe all this is normal. Good and evil have to reach their peak. Only then can God, with the power of His Church, touch the very last man and pull him away from evil, from Lucifer. Evil opposes the liberation of the people of Israel just as the Pharaoh of Egypt did. However, do not think that Lucifer is stronger. Lucifer and his allies, his Antichrist and his False Prophet are destabilised. In their confused madness they seek to strike the final blow, harming those who do not want to respond to God’s call.

These times, especially since the beginning of the apparitions of Our Lady at Medjugorje, are intensive spiritual times for the humanity of the Earth through the presence of Mary’s face. This action is silent and goes through the spirit. The works will be seen later on. The life of God will burst out and the Lord will manifest Himself, appearing at the entrance to the new creation. But this time is, for all of us, the time to elevate ourselves so that we, and the rest of the humanity of the Earth, reach the fullness so that the light is poured over the whole of humanity, leading to its repentance.

 “In this time many Christians have forgotten the truths of faith and are attracted by the pleasures and fashions of the world. In this way their thoughts and their lives are corrupted. The majority of the men of the Earth seeks many gods and puts them on the same level as the true God. They believe that worshipping any god is enough to be in the truth. One religion is as good as the other; one god is as good as the other. Jesus is not different from other masters and gurus. So people speak of the Catholic, the Muslim God, etc. What a great deception!

Children, there is only one God who governs the entire universe: the Most Holy Trinity. He is your only God; He has created you and loves you. He made Himself visible in the flesh in Jesus, My Son, the Second Person of the Most Holy Trinity. He manifested to you the divine life and made you partakers of this life. He healed you from sin; He cured your illnesses; He showed you the value of suffering and opened the path towards resurrection. What else do you need?”

The words of Our Lady explain our times. There is confusion, not only among humanity but also in the Church. Now the new people, who belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of the whole universe, must place the life of the Most Holy Trinity at the centre.  The Mother of God is in the Most Holy Trinity and she says that She withdraws as She has accomplished her task. But why does She withdraw? Because a Christian must not reach even lower levels.  Mary Most Holy who is in the Holy Trinity opens sublime dimensions for the people who want to rise as She is living in the Most Holy Trinity; yet, people can perceive her face also on Earth, and therefore She said that She remained with us in our spirit and that we would find Her within us, but Her Face would be Her glorious face in the Most Holy Trinity.

 “The Church of the Earth, as you have known it, is divided, burdened by the spirit of the world, infested by many parasites, and will have to leave the place to the true Church of Jesus Christ, alive and pulsating in the whole universe. Do not be concerned about this and do not be shocked, for God must purify His people; it is an act of justice and mercy.”

This is the point we have to accept in this time: the Church that is in God comes down among us. The power of the Most Holy Trinity acts in our midst. No one will be left undecided. Only those who have a pure spirit will enter the new creation. So, what do we have to do? We must awaken to our responsibility and seek the face of the Church that is in God: the face that we have seen in the great saints, especially in the Most Holy Mother that reveals itself every day more, glorious as the face of Christ in God. That will be the light nourished by the Holy Spirit within us which leads us to see God the Father.

In the Liturgy of the Gospel of Saturday Jesus calls on us: “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect”[3]. This does not mean perfection but the call to face the laws of the pure Spirit. The words of Our Lady sound very strong, but they are true: “The Church … is divided, burdened by the spirit of the world, infested by many parasites, and will have to leave the place to the true Church of Jesus Christ, alive and pulsating in the whole universe.” This Church that wants to take part in the Church of Jesus Christ of the whole universe will be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit and, guided by St. Michael, she will shut and cut off Hell forever. Like a body that heals with the help of medicaments, expelling the disease, the Church of the whole universe will throw Satan out of her work.

This is the time for us to understand that we are all called to rise. We are called to rise but also to help others to rise. Just as Mary Most Holy remained among the apostles, now the part of the Church that takes the responsibility to unite with the Church of the universe, must express herself in order to help others, all those who want to enter the new creation, to elevate themselves. The rest will be left to its choice. This is God’s decision.

Therefore, I want you to go through this week, seeking the face of God, the face of St. Mary and the faces of the saints within yourselves and progress on your path. It seems difficult to you, but it is not; it is easy if you dedicate some of your time, if you consecrate at least your Sundays truly to the Lord; take your time to immerse yourselves in Him. I advise you, I mean, those who have the possibility, to visit the House-Sanctuaries of the Foundation. The experience of walking the spiritual path for one, two, three days together with the brothers and sisters is very different. To listen directly to the words is also different from hearing them through the internet. However, we will do our best to help you move forward and to explain things to you; yet, let us move forward with the certainty that we will not lack anything and that grace is more powerful than the evil around us.

And I bless you; may you reach a more profound understanding; may the Holy Spirit manifest the face of the victorious, glorious Christ to you; may you participate as transformed people and be sure that your body, your whole existence will be transformed and become similar to the face of the invisible God, as St. Paul says in the letter to the Philippians[4]; in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
