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!
