Letter sent, obeying Our Lady, on 8th april 2001 by the Bishop Claudio Gatti to the Cardinals and Bishops of Italy and of the Vatican, in order to defend the Eucharist and to serve the truth
Most reverend and dearest brother Bishop,
I write in order to prevent you from drawing wrong conclusions after reading the official statement of the Italian Episcopal Conference "about the Movimento Impegno e Testiomonianza - Madre dell'Eucaristia" signed by Card. Ruini and dated 12th January 2001.
Our Lady announced to the visionary Marisa Rossi: "The Eucharist, sacrament of union, will become cause of division" and previously she had said to the three young shepherds of Fatima: "The Church will split into two parts: on both sides there will be priests, bishops and cardinals who will fight with much fury".
So the cause of the future splitting of the Church will be the Eucharist which will be loved and adored by some clergymen, but denied and fought by others.
Is this the third secret of Fatima? This is not the right time to speak about it.
The whole dispute between the president of the I.E.C. and me, bishop ordained by God, concerns the cult that must be attributed to the Eucharist that bled and to other numerous eucharistic miracles.
Up to some time ago this dispute concerned only Card. Ruini and me, instead now it has expanded and involves all the bishops of Italy.
In fact, since Card. Ruini signed the statement as president of the I.E.C. and he presented that document as "official statement of the I.E.C.", this has meant that all the bishops of Italy have condemned me, because I adored the Eucharist that bled during the Holy Mass celebrated by me and I attributed the proper cult to the other numerous eucharistic miracles.
Anyway I wish to have good grounds for believing that regarding me as well happened what was declared by Mons. Giuseppe Casale, bishop emeritus of Foggia, to the newspaper Il Corriere della Sera on 7th March 2001: "The meetings of the permanent councils and of the I.E.C. turn into a lecture-monologue of Card. Ruini who lectures like a professor and only objections out of politeness are risen: there is neither a seriuos debate nor a comparison of opinions and deferring everything to the council, the meeting is often beheaded".
So for love of truth and in order to defend the Eucharist I am compelled to address all the bishops of Italy to give my version of the events, because the official statement of the I.E.C. is full of falsehoods and manipulations of truth.
I love and do not fear the powerful Card. Ruini and I know that God is Omnipotent and in the right moment He will intervene to show who is in the truth.
Card. Ruini defined Marisa Rossi "presumed visionary". Well, since the Code of Canon Law forbids the judge to formulate presumptions (can. 1586), I wonder: how did the above-named cardinal arrive to define Marisa Rossi "presumed visionary" without having carried out the required ascertainments on her, the necessary investigations and the proper interrogations?
The members of the commission, nominated by the Card. Vicary, met Marisa Rossi only once and during the interrogatory they showed: aggressiveness, uncritical affirmations, plagiarism, calumny, manipulation, extorsion of affirmations and contradictions and they acted clearly in opposition to the canon 1564.
In addition they offended Marisa Rossi calling her "heretic, possessed, sacrilegious" and they were seriously lacking in charity and towards the canon 220. At last they didn't draw up the minutes of the interrogatory as the canon 1569 establishes; for this reason Mons. Nosiglia, president of the commission, questioned by me in the presence of the commissioners, declared null and void this only interrogatory.
At this point it is right to wonder: what is the judgement of Card. Ruini based on regarding Marisa Rossi? On nothing, because he did nothing of all that is established by the Code of Canon Law and the praxis of the Church.
So Card. Ruini abused of his power.
Now let's face the delicate subject of the "supposed thaumaturgical events related to the eucharistic cult".
Each time I informed the Vicariate of Rome about the miracolous eucharistic events, the Card. Vicary and his cooperators always liquidated them, without carrying out investigations and interrogatories, as: effects of religious pathology, fair-booth phenomena, consequences of diabolic interventions. Several times, personally and in writing, I asked to Card. Ruini to send experts and exorcists in order to value the eucharistic miracles and he always gave me negative answers, "because he didn't see the necessity".
I myself brought into the Vicariate a blood-stained host in order to have it examined and Mons. Nosiglia ordered me: "Throw away that peace of blood-stained bread", order that I did not carry so as not to go against my conscience and not to incur the latae sententiae excommuincation reserved to the Apostolic See (can. 1367).
Many people and I are witnesses of many eucharistic miracles.
Jesus and Our Lady brought into the thaumaturgical place, this is the way Jesus defined our house, hundreds of consecrated hosts that were either profaned or rescued from profanation or were taken from different churches, where the Eucharist was not loved by priests and laymen. These hosts, placed inside the tabernacle or on the altar in the church and on flowers and sacred images in the house, were given in communion to the people who attended our prayer meetings. All those who received them are ready to witness that the hosts brought by Jesus or Our Lady emitted a particular scent and a pleasant warmth, that was felt when they were put in the mouth.
Some of the hosts brought by Jesus or Our Lady bled in our presence. We keep four blood-stained hosts that are still pefectly preserved after some years and the blood has not decayed. Two of these hosts bled more than once at a distance of some months, this event is unique in the history of the Church. In addition we have a corporal and a pad wet by the blood that came out of the hosts brought by the First and Eternal priest.
Also other sorts of eucharistic miracles happened. In the presence of many people a host came out of the chest of a crucifix, passed through the protective glass box and deposed itself on the hands of Marisa Rossi.
Several times there has been the multiplication of the Eucharist in my hands; with few hosts, brought by the Mother of the Eucharist, I gave the Holy Communion to about two hundred people.
The Vicariate, in front of the repeating of the great eucharistic miracles, without either ever questioning the witnesses, nor carrying out investigations, reacted submerging me with decrees that contained the order of abstaining "from performing acts of eucharistic cult and public cult generally speaking in the occasion or as a consequence of presumed apparitions of hosts" and the menace of suspending me a divinis, if I had not obeyed.
Card. Ruini, through Mons. Nosiglia, got to the ill-famed blackmail: "If you deny that those hosts, also the blood-stained ones, are Eucharist and you were mistaken and you deceived, because they are work of the devil, we won't suspend you". That was too much, because if I had accepted, besides incuring in the excommunication, I would have sinned against the Holy Spirit, for having ascribed to the devil what is work of God.
I replied: "Do whatever you want. I prefer to be suspended a divinis than profaning the Eucharist".
So the true reason for Card. Ruini suspending me a divinis is not because I disobeyed his order, I celebrated the Holy Mass, without considering that Christ had ordered me to celebrate it, but because I didn't surrender to his blackmail.
Jesus said that the suspension a divinis "is illicit, unlawful and null" and in order to show that I was perfectly right in front of the Church and for other reasons explained in the book "You are bishop ordained by God, bishop of the Eucharist", He gave me the fullness of priesthood.
When on the 20th of June 1999 the Lord ordained me bishop, I cried and trembled, because I was perfectly conscient of the new fierce persecution I would have undergone.
I didn't want to be ordained bishop, but the Lord didn't give me the possibility of choosing whether being or not being bishop nor asked me for permission to ordain me bishop. When Jesus ordained Peter and the other apostles bishops He did not impose his hands on their head, He didn't recite any formula of consecration, He didn't perform any rite, but He manifested his will and gave an order: "Do this in remembrance of me" (Luke 22, 14). The Lord behaved in the same way also with me.
"I ordain you bishop, I give you the fullness of priesthood and I give you all powers", Jesus said this while I was crying and suffering.
I said yes to God and the men of the Church pierced me.
Nevertheless Jesus is the Founder and Head of the Church, He is the First and Eternal Priest, because He "has an unchangeable priesthood" (Heb 7, 24).
Jesus is not the emeritus Head of the Church, as many clergymen would like, He didn't abdicate his role of head and, without asking for permission to anybody, He can remit the sins, consecrate the Eucharist and ordain bishops. God can do everything, nothing is impossible to God. Who asserts that God can't ordain a bishop he seriously sins and shows not to know the Holy Scripture.
Jesus united the Eucharist and priesthood, instituting the two sacraments in the Last Supper.
Jesus united my episcopate and the eucharistic miracles and He put his seal on both them on 11th June 2000, feast of Pentecost, when He performed the last great eucharistic miracle, in the presence of more than one hundred people.
As soon as I finished to say the wording of the consecration of the bread, blood began to come out of my host.
Time stopped for me. I was bending over the host that I was holding tightly in my hands and I was gazing at the divine blood that was spreading on a great part of its surface. I did not move for a time that seemed endless to the people present, because they thought I was feeling sick, since on my face alternated a shocking paleness and a strong blush.
As soon as I collected myself a little, I slowly lifted up the host. There was much emotion in the people present, but everything took place in an atmosphere of deep concentration and living participation.
While I was lowering my blood-stained host, I saw, on the paten, two other big hosts that, as the Mother of the Eucharist will say later, had been rescued from profanation and brought into the thaumaturgical place, because "the bishop, the visionary and the members of the community love the Eucharist very much and they are ready to give even their life to defend it".
After reciting the formula of the consecration of the wine, and lifted up the chalice, I took the paten that contained the blood-stained host consecrated by me and the other two hosts rescued from profanation and I passed between the pews of the church, so that the people present could see them closely, ascertain the truthfulness of the fact, smell the scent that the blood-stained host emitted, to witness in the future the great Eucharistic miracle happened.
Would the Lord perform such a great eucharistic miracle in my hands if I were not bishop, but an impostor?
Who denies that the Eucharist consecrated by me is true Eucharist and affirms that the blood that came out of this host is due to a diabolic intervention, sins against the Holy Spirit, profanes the Eucharist and incurs the latae sententiae excommunication reserved to the Apostolic See (can. 1367).
Since in the official statement of the I.E.C., dated 12th January 2001 and posterior to the eucharistic miracle of 11th June 2000, Card. Ruini keeps on speaking about "supposed thaumaturgical events related to the eucharistic cult", I ask to the president of the I.E.C. if he recognizes that the host consecrated by me is true Eucharist and the emission of blood from the consecrated host is work of God.
If he answers yes, he must recognize the supernatural origin of the eucharistic miracle, because the devil has no power on the Eucharist and consequently of all the previous eucharistic miracles.
If he answers no, he profanes the Eucharist, sins against the Holy Spirit and incurs the latae sententiae excommunication reserved to the Apostolic See (can. 1367).
Now my person is not under discussion any longer, but the eucharistic mystery of which the bishops are caretakers.
Since Card. Ruini, according to his style, will not answer to my question, but in other ways he will try to put me to silence, it is duty of each bishop to ask explanations to the president of the I.E.C. about his attitude towards the eucharistic miracle happened during the Holy Mass celebrated by me.
Remember what Christ said: "So every one who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven; but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven" (Mt 10, 32).
I affirm again my communion with the Pope and the Bishops who love, adore and believe the Eucharist.
The Mother of the Eucharist protect the Italian Church.
With my kindest regards.
