Text of the Eucharistic adoration of November 24, 2013
Today we worship our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe. Jesus Sweet Master is the Good Shepherd who sacrificed himself to save all men. He did not come to Earth to be served, but to serve men and free them from the bondage of sin. Jesus chose the glorious throne of the Cross as a sign of his kingship. Be infinitely grateful to him because he gave all of himself to us and we should try to imitate him by standing at our brothers' service.
1) "I am Merciful Jesus, I am Jesus Sweet Master, I am the Good Shepherd, I am God, I am God" (from the letter of God, 11th April 1999).
From the book of Ezekiel (Ez 34:11-12; 15-17)
For thus says the Lord God: behold, I, I myself will search for my sheep and will seek them out. As a shepherd seeks out his flock when he is among his sheep that have been scattered, so will I seek out my sheep, and I will rescue them from all places where they have been scattered on a day of clouds and thick darkness. I myself will be the shepherd of my sheep, and I myself will make them lie down, declares the Lord God. I will seek the lost, and I will bring back the strayed, and I will bind up the injured, and I will strengthen the weak, and the fat and the strong I will destroy. I will feed them in justice. As for you, my flock, thus says the Lord God: Behold, I judge between sheep and sheep, between rams and male goats.
From the Letter of God, 21st March 2004
Our Lady - My dear children, I thank you for your attendance. I invite you to invoke my Son Jesus, the Good Shepherd. You are His sheep and He is the good shepherd; turn to Him for all your needs and, if it is God's will, He will grant you the grace. Here several aids were awarded and many miracles were worked that not everyone knows. All this is due to your sister's great love, who loves everyone too much, even those who make her suffer. Each day I invite you to say: "Jesus, Good Shepherd, help us, poor sheep" and you will see that you will be stronger, more courageous and more sensitive to the others' suffering because sometimes sensitivity towards those who suffer is failing. Do not force me to always repeat the same recommendations: sincerity, humility, simplicity, sensitivity, love, the great all-embracing love. If you love as my Jesus loves you, you will see how everything will be easy, even if you encounter difficulties and sufferings.
Jesus is the Good Shepherd who knows his sheep, he takes care of them, guides them on the path, through the Sacraments and the Word gives them the right food and tries in every way to protect them from any danger. What Christ has accomplished during his public life on Earth, continues to do it even now after he ascended to Heaven. Christ continues to work in his Church, but loves each individual differently, depending on one's historical, cultural, social, environmental and family diversity. Christ is present in the life of all men, even those who do not love him. Indeed, for the latter, the Good Shepherd has a particular concern, for he wants them to convert and follow him into the fold.
To follow Christ we must commit ourselves every day to give him our heart, we must rely on Him and put every day of our life in his hands; if we succeed to see Jesus as King of our hearts, then we will be guided by Him and as his servants, we will bring love into the world and we will be able to put ourselves at our brothers' service.
2 ) "I am Christ, King of kings, without a crown ... I do not have a crown, but I have my big heart and full of love for you all" (from the letter of God, 25th November 2001).
From the first letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians (1 Cor 15:20-26; 28).
But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead. He's the first crop of the harvest of those who have died. Since death came through a human being, the resurrection of the dead came through one too. In the same way that everyone dies in Adam, so also everyone will be given life in Christ. Each event will happen in the right order: Christ, the first crop of the harvest, then those who belong to Christ at his coming, and then the end, when Christ hands over the kingdom to God the Father, when he brings every form of rule, every authority and power to an end. It is necessary for him to rule until he puts all enemies under his feet. Death is the last enemy to be brought to an end. But when all things have been brought under his control, then the Son himself will also be under the control of the one who gave him control over everything so that God may be all in all.
From the letter of God, November 20, 2005
Marisa - Finally you are with us during the apparition of your Mother. I knew you and I saw you carrying the crown of thorns, now I see you as Christ the King, but you didn't want to wear the crown. Now you are here, as a King, help us.
Jesus - My dear children, what your sister said is the truth. I carried on the crown of thorns, bleeding everywhere, and then I went to the Father, Who proclaimed me Christ the King, but I didn't want to wear the crown as especially do the kings, so attached to their crowns. I didn't want to wear the crown, I tried in everyway to give my heart, my heart. For me is much more important to take out my crown and to give my heart to everyone. I know you are living very difficult times and it seems that I don't love you the way you like, but I love you all, my dear children. When God the Father says to me: "Give your heart to all your children, the good and the bad ones, to the ones who deserve it and to the ones who do not deserve it". I gave my heart to everybody. Unfortunately sometimes I am misunderstood. Even your Bishop repeats very often: "I am misunderstood, but I love everyone".
Christ is the eternal head of the whole Church. He is the King of the militant Church constituted by the community of the baptized who live on earth in a state of grace; to them our Lord gives assistance by helping them in the fight against sin, to the point that he will destroy all evil and human authorities who will oppose Him.
Christ is the King of the expiating Church, consisting of those who have died in the grace of God, but still have a debt to atone for the sins committed.
Christ, finally, is the King of the triumphant Church, the only one that will remain even after the final judgment. With God's judgment and the resurrection of the body, even the last enemy, death, will have been wiped out and those who have died in a state of grace will be resurrected in all their beauty. The resurrection of the body will affect everyone, even the damned, but they will have a horrifying ugliness. At that point the militant Church will no longer exist and therefore there will be no reason for Christ to be the fighter Messiah. Jesus will hand over the kingdom to the Father and will take the place on his right, as the Son of God, before whom all the Heaven, in its reality of community and triumphant Church will in turn bow.
In this view, to give Christ the common royal insignia, throne, scepter and crown, is to belittle his greatness as King.
Jesus is surprising us because his mode of action is completely opposite to that of men. The latter love to emerge and in the course of history have dominated their own kind. Sometimes kings and emperors have even proclaimed themselves by force, claiming all the regalia typical of those who reign over the nations. "Jesus doesn't feel to be a king like the kings of this world, but He feels to be a father, a son, a brother, a friend!" (letter of God, November 24, 1996). He does not seek the regalia: being God since eternity he is sitting on a infinitely glorious throne; by his incarnation he has chose thrones that do not collect men's approval, the last and more important over time is the throne of the cross, in fact he said: "When I am lifted up on the cross, I will draw all men unto me". This throne, which according to men's mentality was the most humiliating that could be offered to the condemned, is actually exalting God because it shows his sovereignty.
Christ the King comes to us showing us the signs of his passion, these are signs of his kingship, glorious trophies and signs of victory. If we bow before him saying as S. Thomas: "My Lord and my God", then we will be confirmed in the dignity of being children of God and members of the Mystical Body.
If we grow in a state of grace, we will look ever closer to Jesus and then we too might be sovereign, as Our Lady said: "Do you remember when Jesus said: "I am King without a crown"? We don't use to wear a crown. It is not the crown that makes us sovereigns, but our heart and soul; everything which is just, which is chaste, which is pure makes us Kings and Queens; so you can also reach royalty. Be perfect in front of God. You will say that only God is perfect; it is true, but a man can also become perfect, not at God's level, but for his charity, his goodness, his patience, if he has a clean soul and always lives in a state of grace". (letter of God, November 12, 2006).
For this reason, our Bishop and Marisa, who have loved us as children, used to pray for our spiritual growth and were anxious that we could ascend more and more towards God and our attachment to the Eucharist would became ever stronger and more authentic.
3) "Christ the servant of men. Christ the friend of mankind. Christ dying for men"
From the letter of S. Paul to the Philippians (2:5-11).
Adopt the attitude that was in Christ Jesus: though he was in the form of God, he did not consider being equal with God something to exploit. But he emptied himself by taking the form of a slave and by becoming like human beings. When he found himself in the form of a human, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore, God highly honored him and gave him a name above all names, so that at the name of Jesus everyone in heaven, on earth, and under the earth might bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
From the letter of God, November 21, 1999
Jesus - I, Jesus, am here today as Christ the King, with no crown, but as a servant who wants to help his own children. If only a few children could be saved, then my death would have been useless. When I tell you to rejoice, to enjoy, to smile, I am not joking, for you have chosen the best part, do not backtrack. You are my two favorite little children chosen by God and I ask you for help, prayers and sufferings to save the men who know me but do not accept what I have taught... At this time the one most in need is your Bishop; he needs help, prayers and strength. God is watching over him, but believe me, it is sometimes difficult to accept what God wants. I, as the Second Person of the Most Holy Trinity, see and know everything; I, as a man, understand the Bishop's struggle, his difficulties and his desire to abandon everything and say: "What am I doing all this for?" I had to reopen Heaven and I did it. I will not conceal that I was dejected, worried and, as man, always called God to help me. I too had the desire to drive out those who approached me because they were asking for help and then walked away once they got what they wanted. I saved all the people who asked me for help and came to listen to me.
Since the beginning of the history of salvation up to now, there are very few people who truly love God, who love the Holy Spirit, who love Me and the Mother of the Eucharist.
Say not Christ the King but Christ the servant of men. Christ the friend of mankind. Christ dying for men. This is the true Christ the King.
God has no need of men in the implementation of his plans, but because he loves men immensely, he wants also his children to play their part. At the same time, our Lord comes down to our level by giving himself totally to us in the Eucharist, he gives us his grace by forgiving our sins, gives us special gifts and grants us all the spiritual and materials graces we need, even when it is not us asking for them. Here, then, we become useless servants when we give our hearts to Christ, but He is the first to becomes our servant by giving us his heart leading us to eternal salvation. This unequal exchange between us and Jesus, our King, produces very large fruits and, through Him, we, who are small creatures, will become powerful tools in his hands because "Whoever believes in me will do the works that I do. They will do even greater works than these" (Jn 14:12).
Surely, those who have faithfully imitated Christ were our Bishop and Marisa. Yes, they have always put themselves in last place and they really served us in every spiritual necessity; they were our friends, with whom we have shared good, joyful and intense moments, but also other sad moments full of suffering. We have disclosed many of our problems to our spiritual parents, they have always tried to solve them with words, prayer and suffering.
The interpretation given by God to the third secret of Fatima tells us that the Bishop, assisted by Marisa, died for men because he sacrificed himself for the Church.
It is not easy to follow Christ, as it is not easy to follow the example of our spiritual parents, but every time we do it, we too choose the best part and, despite all difficulties, mistakes, shortcomings and sufferings, we must thank God for bringing us to choose the best part. Now it is our duty to continue on this path and to ensure that our brothers choose it through our example and testimony, in this way Jesus' words will become reality: "I would like that all men were kings without crown, without power or wealth to enjoy true life. It is nice to be king, but it is necessary to live in honesty, in sincerity, in humility. I would like that all of you were kings as I am, as the love that you feel for the Eucharist is great and this is what matters" (letter of God, November 26, 2000).
