“Elevation to God”

By Fr Tomislav Vlašić

15 May 2021

(Translated audio]

Dearest Brothers and Sisters; today’s reflection will be on the “Elevation to God”. At the last meeting[1], I spoke about the end of the Easter season. There, all contents are summarized: all the mysteries of God; the spiritual life from conception to Christian maturity, which leads us to God’s mystery and to be with God. Therefore, all these solemnities are connected to each other, and it is very important that we understand the unity between them. We are now praying the novena to the Holy Spirit because in Italy the Ascension is celebrated on Sunday.[2]

This week, the Gospel brings us Jesus’ words to the Father. He shows the Apostles and the Disciples the path to the Father and announces His visible departure from them.[3] This shows us the friendship between Jesus and the Disciples, which made it painful for them to separate from Him. On the other hand, Jesus had to go to the Father to give the Christians the space to walk their path to reach the Lord. Today, Saturday, the Gospel says: “In that day you will ask in my name. I am not saying that I will ask the Father on your behalf. No, the Father himself loves you because you have loved me and have believed that I came from God. I came from the Father and entered the world; now I am leaving the world and going back to the Father.”[4] Continue reading


“The Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary”

By Fr Tomislav Vlašić

12 May 2021

(Translated audio)

Dearest Brothers and Sisters; we have said many times that our liturgical celebration is a participation in the events guided by God in the whole Universe. Both on Earth and in the Universe, the events are of cosmic proportions.

We are in the last weeks of the Easter season. In this time, grace is leading us towards great graces and the participation in the sublime work of God through His instruments. What lies ahead of us? Tomorrow we celebrate our Solemnity of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima; on Sunday we celebrate the Ascension of the Lord, then the descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles and finally the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity. In all these solemnities, we are called to consecrate ourselves solemnly. Tonight we consecrate ourselves to Mary Most Hoy, Mother, Co-redemptrix and Queen of the Universe, and to Christ. In the celebration of the solemnity of the Ascension of the Risen Lord, we will also consecrate ourselves to Mary, the Mother taken to Heaven, in order to be elevated to the will of God and to be ready to welcome the graces that are intended for each and all of us in this time. Only by submitting ourselves to God’s will, through Jesus Christ, who sits at the right side of the Father, will the Father give us the Holy Spirit, and when we are consecrated to the Holy Spirit, we will be sent to bear witness, to manifest the glory of God and His victory over Satan. As I said, we will conclude with the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity, consecrating ourselves to God the Father and to the Most Holy Trinity.[1] Continue reading


Let My Heart Triumph in You

Message of Mary Most Holy – Vigil of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima

Let My Heart Triumph in You

12 May 2021

“Dearest Children,

Thank you for celebrating the anniversary of My apparitions in Fatima, which were very important events for the history of the Earth and the plan of salvation.[1]

When the Lord sent Me to Fatima, the situation of the humanity of the Earth was very serious: the First World War covered the Earth in blood; everywhere, hunger, misery and disease were prevalent. Through My apparitions, I wanted to lead humanity back to God through My Immaculate Heart so that it would be saved according to God’s wishes; however, man’s heart was cold and insensitive. It was a heart of stone. Continue reading


The Essence of Our Faith

Church of Jesus Christ of the Universe

By Mauro

26 April 2021

(Translated audio)

We are in the Easter season, and we are reliving all phases of our redemption. In this time, the memory that we have been created for eternal life awakens in us in a special way. We have been created to seek the things of Heaven. It is a time when all readings, the Word of God, penetrate deep into us, in the space between spirit and soul. It awakens these truths: we are on Earth, of the Earth, but we are not made for the Earth; we are in the world but not of the world.

In the passages of Lent and Easter, we have contemplated the Love of God, who showed us His highest action and His greatest Love precisely on the Cross. The Love of the Father, who sacrificed His Son to redeem the rebellious children; through this passage He opened the path so that all the people of good will could return to the Father. He prepared the path and reawakened the image and likeness of God, imprinted in us since conception. Continue reading


God’s Action throughout History

Church of Jesus Christ of the Universe

By Mauro

15 April 2021

(Translated audio)

Tonight, I would like to take a look with you at God’s action throughout history, in short sections, so that we may also understand the action of God in these times. Look, if each of us, an epoch or an era is not embedded in a global view of God’s action, even the most beautiful, the greatest event will not reach fullness, completeness, but remain something that will disappear without leaving any marks in history. On the contrary, when a very small, humble and normal gesture, the daily flow of life, is part of a project of God, it will bear the fruit of flowing love. That fruit gives meaning to life; that fruit comes from stepping out of ourselves for the love of the others, for the love of God; this is the base of the Christian. Many great people passed on Earth, without taking part in this project of God, leaving no mark behind, and we do not remember them.

We know that we are in a great battle.[1] This battle has been going on forever, but now we are at its peak. It is a battle against a spirit; it is not a battle against people or situations but against a spirit, which influences people, makes situations happen, that is, the things that happen in the world. It is useless for us, as Church of Jesus Christ, to say that we have recognised the Church, that we want to be part of it, that we wear the sign if we fail to join the project of God.

“The True and Truthful Church in the Risen Christ”

By Father Tomislav Vlašić

10 April 2021

(Translated audio)

The title of today’s reflection is “The True and Truthful Church in the Risen Christ”. With this title, I wish you Happy Easter and a good Easter season. We have communicated to you that the Church of Jesus Christ, according to His Heart, descends from Heaven[1] and His intermediate presence takes place in His Church[2]. This Easter has been marked by this truth and we have felt it.

In my reflection, I turn to those who belong to the Church of Jesus Christ, the little remnant, those who want to belong and those who are of good will, to explain how we can verify the intermediate presence of Jesus. I will develop two points: the central points of today’s readings, and then those of the message Jesus has given us today.[3] Continue reading


Mercy is Truth

Message of Jesus – Vigil of Divine Mercy Sunday

10 April 2021

Therefore, live in the truth and make My work of Redemption alive and actual in order to become co-redeemers. You will not reach this if you do not immerse yourselves in My Sacrifice through My Mother. Remember that you will never be co-redeemers without the work of the Co-redemptrix. Being co-redeemers is not a simple statement but the mission of each one of you and of My Church of the whole Universe. It is what makes you true, merciful disciples, bringers of life to the farthest ends of the Universe.

Mercy is Truth

“Dearest Children,

After the Easter celebration, you are preparing for the Sunday of Divine Mercy and that is right. In fact, after My Death and Resurrection, I appeared to the Apostles and the disciples to bring them the fruit of My Passion and Resurrection, that is, Mercy. Only by accepting to die and be resurrected for you, have I obtained mercy for you. Continue reading


Happy Easter

Church of Jesus Christ of the Universe

By Mauro

3 April 2021

(Translated audio)

I wish you a happy Easter vigil, a Happy Easter and, above all, a happy Easter season! All the readings we have heard tonight, beginning from the Exultet [Easter Proclamation], light in us the joy of this path, which God has prepared for us. It is the joy of the passage from death to life, which we feel not only when we die physically, but also every time we are released from the burden of our thoughts and that of all our reasoning.

All the readings, from the Old Testament to St. Paul[1] as well as the Gospel[2], indicate a path; it is the path that humanity made in all times. They show us particularly the path of the people of Israel, which was to go out, to go, to leave, to abandon the old. If we look at it, even the Gospel ends like this: “Go and proclaim”.[3] The women were afraid; they did not say anything to anyone; however, even with the resurrection a path begins: “Go”. It is always the act of going out, of leaving. Continue reading


Good Friday

Church of Jesus Christ of the Universe

By Mauro

2 April 2021

(Translated audio)

Today, we contemplate Jesus climbing Calvary. St. Francis told us in his message[1] that he would receive strength from the contemplation of Jesus climbing Calvary. He received strength because the love and knowledge of Jesus increased in him; he could see more and more the Pure Love that, on that day, forever overturned the history of all times: a Love that is so great that there will never be such a great love again. In that knowledge, in that Pure Love, St. Francis met the Father in the Holy Spirit.

On Good Friday there is no Holy Mass, but it is Jesus Himself who celebrates on His Body.

We can say that in the readings of these days we contemplate the renewal of the covenant; it is renewed through Jesus’ faithfulness to the Father. Yesterday we heard in the Gospel of John[2] that Jesus was glorified in the Last Supper because He was aware that He wholly belonged to the Father and that He had done all that the Father had asked of Him, all that He had heard from the Father. We have heard that the Father rejoiced and gave Him the grace to face the Cross, to fulfil the Easter passage, to accomplish redemption. Thus, Jesus lived obediently to the Father for thirty-three years, but He had to go through this passage to give fullness. Continue reading


Easter Triduum

Church of Jesus Christ of the Universe

By Mauro

31 March 2021

(Translated audio)

Tomorrow the Easter Triduum begins, the one with a capital letter, because we experience this Triduum every week and it is good to experience it since it makes us understand more and more the extent of our salvation, the extent of God’s love for us. However, what we are celebrating in these days is precisely the commemoration, the renewed experience of what Jesus suffered.

Every year, when we listen to the readings of the prophet Isaiah linked to the Psalms in these days, this week, we are amazed at how the prophet and also the Psalms predicted and described the whole Passion in all details; the Passion that encompasses all the teachings of Jesus, and the whole dimension of salvation. But if we take a closer look – and it is precisely the three years of Jesus’ public life that we know in particular – everything was a tracing back of what happened in the Passion in concentrated form; during those three years He went through it several times, apart from reaching the cross, which happened only once.

I think that this year is very particular for us, deeper. Once again the words of the prophet have a particular meaning for us and deeply touch us: “The Lord has called Me from the womb” (Isa 49,1). “He awakens Me morning by morning, He awakens My ear to hear as the learned.” (Isa 50,4). This is because time is getting shorter and shorter and because Jesus is here among us in His intermediate coming. His living presence broadens our spirit, gives us the peace and light that increase hope; this hope should now become a certainty, but I think this has already happened. We do not only hope but we are certain that it will happen. It is the certainty that God is guiding His people, despite all that is going on around us; although times may appear dark, there is the certainty that God is leading and guiding history.
