Message of St. Joseph of 18 March 2021, “Mary, the New Woman”,
published in the book “Towards the New Creation – Vol. XIII – Collected Messages 2021”, Luci dell’Esodo, p. 28

Happy feast to you all! Today we celebrate the Holy Family of Nazareth. We know that the Holy Family of Nazareth is the first cell of the Church. We have a message of St. Joseph, in which he explains it clearly; we will listen to it later.

It is beautiful to see how the first cell of the Church was directly guided by God’s hand through His Archangels. The Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Joseph were gradually guided and prepared for their task to which the Mary Most Holy and St. Joseph had already said ‘yes’ at the moment of their conception; yet, it had to reawaken in them, and in this awakening, they were steadily guided. The Lord guided them through dreams, the presence of the Angels and the faithful brothers and sisters. Later, Jesus instructed them personally.

However, do not forget that the Lord guides each one of us. Do not think that the only way the Lord uses to guide us is through dreams. God knows how to guide each one of us, and He guides us according to our tasks. The way He always uses, the first method, the one He prefers, which guarantees never to make mistakes, is communion. St. Paul explains it very well to the Collossians.[1]

Mary and Joseph could not live this dimension of communion; they were the forerunners; they were the first two. Communion was only possible among them, and God united them through the guidance of the Archangels. However, in the first cell that generates other cells, communion becomes the primary instrument, but it has to be true communion as St. Paul tells the Colossians:

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone.“ If we live like that, God guides us, He speaks to us and He transforms us.

If we live like that, God guides us, He speaks to us and He transforms us. I want to emphasize, “if we live like that”, that is, not as the Pharisees did with empty words, without human effort, pretending to be good and to forgive, because it is easy to verify if we truly accept the other or not. It is very easy. If we always know things better than others, if we keep admonishing others and affirming our point of view, then our cunning soul says in words that we are offering ourselves for them, but in reality we are not ready to die for them, nor to die to our ideas by giving them up even when we are right. This is how we can verify it.

I continue with St. Paul: “Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.“

What shall we be thankful for? We shall be thankful when a brother or a sister challenges us, when someone questions false peace. Then, God can guide us because everything has to come from us, everything! And everything has to be handed over to God if we want to be transformed. We will hear about it later on. Even St. Joseph lived his time in the house of Nazareth, letting himself be transformed. He, the righteous without equal! If anyone of us thinks he does not need to be transformed by communion, he should watch out.

“Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”

He restates that we must be thankful when we are reproached, when we are admonished, when they show us what is not good. Therefore, I will give you this advice: if you want to experience this path of transformation, which all of you have walked and reached a good level but want to go further, then you must begin the process of dying to yourselves; in doing so, let Mary Most Holy and St. Joseph guide you. They are the sublime instruments; consecrate yourselves to them with true faith every day.

What should you consecrate? Everything. Consecrate your thoughts; consecrate your senses so that you may be able to listen, speak and observe in the right way. Consecrate your desires. Consecrate all your life, that is, all your pains and joys. Consecrate yourselves and have the courage to consecrate the others with all your love. Consecrate your enemies. Consecrate your past and your future; consecrate the leaders, the martyrs of every day, as there always are. Consecrate all the good that is done on Earth, even the good we do not see, and those who do it that we do not see. Consecrate the children and the elderly, but always do it with true faith, as then, you will notice that you are transformed and that the world is transformed, too. To consecrate means to let Mary Most Holy and St. Joseph glorify God in the realities you have consecrated to them, beginning from yourselves and doing it with others.

I will leave you to the words of St. Joseph.

From the message of St. Joseph of 18 March 2021, “Mary, the New Woman”[2]

 

Dearest Children,

I turn to you like a loving father. The children of Jesus and Mary are all my children. I watch over you and the whole Church of the Universe as I watched over the family of Nazareth.

The family of Nazareth must truly be an example of authentic communion in God for you. It was the first cell of the Church of the whole Universe. It was formed in view of Jesus’ coming; it lived for Him and followed the stages of His life; it was prepared and instructed by Jesus. I am a testimony of this because my life and my mission are inseparably bound to the life and mission of Mary and Jesus. Not even my premature death could separate me from them. My spirit continued and will continue to work together with Mary and Jesus for eternity. […]

God never asks us to carry out a task without giving us the grace at the moment of conception; the bigger the mission, the stronger the grace. I had said ‘Yes’ to my mission even before I was born and God’s grace awakened my ‘Yes’, as happens to everyone who has decided at conception to love and serve the true God. […]

As Jesus was growing up, the Archangels continuously visited our house to adore the Son of God and to visit the first cell of His Church. The brothers and sister faithful to God also visited us many times, showing us their great love. That small and modest house in Nazareth was a true sanctuary of Heaven. However, our life was not easy: God did not spare us trials and persecutions, nor the difficulties of being poor. However, He never left us without Providence because God never abandons those who trust in Him.

Mary and I knew that, one day, Jesus would leave for His public mission, and we also knew what awaited Him. During the years He spent with us, Jesus spoke to us about what He would have to suffer; He predicted His death and resurrection several times. My heart trembled and ached at the thought of the pain that would befall the two of us, and especially that child, whom we loved more than our own life. […]

As I have already told you, the family of Nazareth was the first cell of the Church of Jesus Christ of the whole Universe. Jesus was in the centre as King, Saviour and High Priest of the new Alliance. Mary was Mother and Queen; the Co-Redemptrix destined to participate fully in the Sacrifice of the Son. I was their people and carried within me the faith of Israel and the faith of the new people who would be born of the Sacrifice of the Cross. Day by day, the old Israelite died in me to make way for the redeemed Christian.

God was transforming me. Everything in me and around me was a great mystery: my putative Son was also my God and my Saviour. My earthly spouse would one day be my Mother, my Queen and my Co-Redemptrix, as for all humanity to which I also belonged. I paved the way for you because I fully welcomed Jesus’ Redemption and Mary’s Co-Redemption. For this reason, God called me to be the guardian of His Church of the Universe as I had been for the Holy Family, the little Church of Nazareth.

If you want to become new creatures, you have to unite with Jesus and Mary as I did. Jesus could not be born without Mary, but He could not die without Mary either. He needed the participation of an immaculate creature who would take part, in the name of all humanity, in the suffering of the Cross and the glory of the Resurrection to prepare the path for a new humanity. No one else could have done this except the One who had given Him everything and who belonged entirely to Him.

Mary’s participation in the Sacrifice of the Cross was of such intensity as to make the bond between the Mother and the Son, the King and the Queen, the Redeemer and the Co-Redemptrix, indissoluble for eternity. This bond is not only emotional, that is, in the natural order, but also spiritual and mystical, that is, in the order of grace. The immaculate and sublime love, which unites Jesus and Mary, continuously generates the children of God who welcome and venerate Mary and recognise Her prerogatives as divine Mother, Queen and Co-Redemptrix. […]

Dear children, remain always united with Mary’s Heart and your path will be safe. The time you are living in, is the time of the INTERMEDIATE COMING OF JESUS. It is a precious time for you. He is acting powerfully to support and strengthen His people and prepare them for His glorious coming at the end of times. […]

Children, always remain in harmony with the will of God, and let yourselves be carried gently by Mary to the embrace of the Most Holy Trinity. Contemplate the work of Jesus and Mary in you as I did. Now, your house is truly much bigger than the house in Nazareth: it is the Universe, and your family is the immense people of God that lives in it. Mary is no longer the humble woman of Israel who lived Her everyday life; She is the Mother of Humanity who welcomes you with love. She is the Co-Redemptrix who incessantly intercedes for you and obtains mercy and peace for you in virtue of the Passion that She shared with Her Son. She is the Queen of the Universe who wants you to participate in His glory. Above all, She is the New Woman who generates you so that you become children of the new humanity.  

I am always by your side, and I bless you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”
