Feast of Priesthood

Today it is a great celebration day for our community because it marks the 55th anniversary of Don Claudio’s priestly ordination, the Bishop of the Eucharist, the Bishop of love. On this day, however, despite being his feast, our Bishop has always preferred to solemnly celebrate the great sacrament of priesthood, which makes Christ present in body, blood, soul and divinity and actualizes the sacrifice of the cross in every time and place.

Now it has been several years since he flew to Heaven, but we always feel he is in our midst, close to our families; we imagine him praying ceaselessly before God, with his face joyful, at last, and even more so enlightened by that grace that made his eyes shine with love. We are sure he is next to Marisa, our spiritual mother, with whom he shared intense supernatural experiences and suffering above all human endurance.

For us the Bishop was a loving father, an indisputable guide, a warm shelter, a unique person, as every true father is for his son, and we miss him as if his departure had happened yesterday.

Unfortunately, many people who knew him did not understand him, they did not want to listen to him and turned their back, but one day the world will recognize him for the great prophet he was, the great priest who changed the Church history with prayers, suffering and total abandonment to God.

In every word and in every gesture of his, the face of Jesus, Sweet Master, who worked through him, always shone forth. The Mother of the Eucharist, in the letter of God of April 13, 2003, reiterated: "Your Bishop tells the truth: he speaks as a sage, as a prophet, speaks in the name of Jesus, because Jesus is in him". In particular, to Mons. Claudio Gatti was granted by God the gift of knowing further truths and facts concerning the life of Jesus and His Mother. He has given them to our community with great joy and love and, by divine will, will be part of the Church patrimony. These truths have helped us to increase our devotion and faith and we will always be grateful to God for this. Today, in this adoration, we want to meditate on some of these unique pearls and thank You, Jesus, because with Your presence here among us we will be able to listen to them and more deeply rediscover them.

Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, was next to Jesus at the Last Supper

Thanks to the letters of God and to our Bishop Mons. Claudio Gatti, we know with certainty that Our Lady has never abandoned her Son Jesus, but she has always remained beside Him, either naturally or in bilocation. Between Jesus and Mary, from the very first moment of Incarnation, intense talks and great prayers addressed to the Father took place, and, during these talks, one of the most discussed topics was the Eucharist. Jesus spoke to His Mother about what he would have said and done and spoke many times about the institution of the Sacrament of the Eucharist.

In the Gospel there is little talk about Our Lady, because of her request, she wanted the first place to be occupied entirely by her Son, the Messiah.

When Jesus began His public life and with the Apostles moved from one village to another to announce the Gospel, Our Lady was always close to Him. In the Gospel of Luke we read that with Jesus and the Twelve there were also some women who served them by offering all that they had and thus forming a group following Him.

On the day of the institution of the Eucharist, Jesus, as John tells us, asked him and Peter to prepare what was necessary for the Easter celebration; the two Apostles could not do everything themselves in such a short time, they were certainly helped by Our Lady and the pious women.

Since only Our Lady knew what that hall would have been used for, she humbly took her place at the service of God the Son, cleaning and decorating with love the room for Easter. She was aware that the life of her Son was coming to an end and that He would have to face betrayal, capture, passion and death. Although the joy and the suffering were both present in her heart, she prayed and was happy that the fruit of her work could serve for the first, great and solemn Holy Mass that her Son would celebrate.

Jesus, once arrived in the Upper Room, was welcomed by His Mother and by the other women who, at the suggestion of Our Lady, for privacy and discretion, gathered in another adjoining room, so as to leave Jesus the possibility to speak once more to the apostles. Shortly before the institution of the Eucharist, Jesus called His Mother and made her sit next to Him.

During the apparition reserved for the Bishop and the Seer, on October 24, 2007, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit blessed a statue of the Mother of the Eucharist created by a member of our community. At the beginning of the prayer meeting, the statue was brought by the Bishop in our chapel and placed exactly in the empty space between Jesus and John, as depicted in Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper. This is another important truth: Mary, Mother of the Eucharist was next to Jesus during the Last Supper.

Daddy God

In the homily of 11th February 2008 our Bishop cast a new seed into the Church from which a new relationship between God and man sprouted, a father-son relationship never experienced before by men, making the Church shine with a different light. It was very exciting to hear our spiritual father talk about God as a Dad who loves, guides and protects His children, thus allowing us to throw away the traditional, stereotypical, empty and rhetorical image of an inaccessible and distant God. Thus the perspective with which we turn to God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit is completely changed. He has created us in His likeness, knows everything about each of us and if we offer Him a clean, good and graceful heart, we are no longer "orphans", but we are embraced by the Heavenly Father who takes us by the hand, guides us, He stands next to us as father, brother, friend and opens the only possible way to live a better life and, in the future, to reach the Heaven.

As our Bishop explained to us: "God is the sovereign, the All, in front of Him Our Lady too bows and kneels in reverent adoration, but He is also the one who knows how to smile, play and joke, who kisses and caresses His own children even if they are not aware of it. The distant and inaccessible God must now give way to the present and affectionate God. This concept must come into the Church and be sure that it will come" (From the homily of 11th February 2007 by Mons. Claudio Gatti). Each of us, therefore, can savor a new relationship with the Creator, no longer attached to an abstract idea of ​​God, but feeling it as a real presence in the heart and soul. This is exactly what our Bishop and our sister Marisa have personally experienced; in fact, when the two dear children lived the painful experience of Gethsemane, Daddy God never forsook them, but wanted to take part in their suffering, as our Bishop told us during a touching prayer: "My God, you have revealed to us that You are always there with us, with your two dear little children, when we suffer and moan, even though most of the time we have neither seen You nor heard nor perceived. You, Daddy God, as you have imposed on You the suffering in the moment of the Passion and the Death of Your Son, so you also wanted to suffer together with the two lambs who immolate themselves for the rebirth of the Church and this night you were there beside us". (From the prayer of March 11, 2007 by Mons. Claudio Gatti)

Just as God did not want to spare His Son Jesus the Passion, but sustained Him without ever forsaking Him, He also does the same with us, He does not spare us pain and suffering in the hard times of life when we feel forsaken or crushed by trials. God does not forsake us because He is our Dad.

Resurrection as seen from Heaven

At the moment of Christ's death the earth trembled, the sky darkened and the veil of the Temple was torn in two; this caused repentance in the soldiers, the pagans were scared, the few friends tied to Jesus’ memory experienced uncertainty, disbelief and sense of abandonment, only Our Lady knew exactly what would have happen.

Instead, in the supernatural reality Christ’s death provoked a completely different reaction, because with it, Redemption was accomplished, sin was erased and man reconciled with God.

After His death, Jesus went to take all the souls of the righteous of the Old Testament; therefore all of them exulted by the sight of this divine, glorious and supernatural light, enveloping and transporting them to Heaven and finally enjoying the beatific vision of God. Jesus’ body was still in the sepulcher, but His soul, being God, was with the Father and the Holy Spirit.

When God's appointed time for Resurrection arrived, all of the Heaven descended before the sepulcher: God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit were present, the Angels and Saints too bowing reverently in adoration, rejoicing and exulting. Those who rejoiced the most were St. Joseph and Our Lady, present in bilocation before the tomb and in the Cenacle.

All of the Heaven witnessed the Resurrection event.

Christ rose because of His own virtue and power as God; the person of Christ, true God and true Man, recomposed in His unity, leapt into the splendor of His divinity.

At the very moment when this marvelous scene was over, Our Lady’s bilocation also ceased, then it was Jesus who went to visit His Mother in the Cenacle together with the Guardian of the Eucharist.

While the women, at the first light of Sunday morning, went to the Sepulcher, followed thereafter by John and Peter, the risen Jesus was with His mother and father and together they spoke for hours about the Eucharist, about this presence of Christ in Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity which, by God's will, would have remained on Earth until the end of the world. Then in those moments human reality was sad, but the supernatural was joyous.

"Close the eyes of the flesh and open the eyes of the soul and you will be able to see what I have described to you. I know very well that it is a limited description, but for now this is what is given to us to know. Certainly in the future in Heaven we will see, we will enjoy and we will know much more and all our questions will have an answer, so that the full and total knowledge coming from the vision of God can sustain us and accompany us throughout eternity. We will give continuous, incessant glory to God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit, together with the angels and saints. This is Heaven, see you in Heaven". (From the 2004 Easter homily by Bishop Claudio Gatti)
