The Waiting Paradise
Among the many gifts God wanted to give humanity through the apparitions, there is also the revealing details of the supernatural reality to date never disclosed to any human being. To our great surprise and immense gratitude we are privileged witnesses of a new reality for the Church regarding Paradise.
The only virtue that remains forever is charity, as the scriptures teach us: "Charity never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away." (1 Cor 13:8).
Also Our Lady told us: "Remember that love, charity will continue in Heaven, while faith and hope will end." (Letter of God, 2nd March 2002)
In Heaven the souls who see God, grow in love and become more and more like Him, that is why our sister Marisa, during the apparitions, often says she sees Our Lady more and more beautiful.
This year Jesus and Our Lady have shown to us that there is a Waiting Paradise. Here the souls, while being happy, do not yet enjoy the vision of God, for they have not reached the level of Love that He was expecting from them.
When God decides, the souls that are in the Waiting Paradise go to the Paradise of Beatific Vision where they see God "as He is".
On 6th August 2008, the Feast of the Transfiguration of Jesus, our sister Marisa has seen a great feast in Heaven where two popes: Paul VI and John Paul I went from the Waiting Paradise to Paradise of Beatific Vision. The Seer has seen a wonderful scene that she describes in this way: "When the Heaven opened I saw it was vast, huge, full of flowers and adorned with lights of different colors. The Mother of the Eucharist, surrounded by hosts of angels, was dominating among those who were in the Waiting Paradise. Next to her there were Paul VI and John Paul I. Suddenly I heard a strong thunder and saw a wonderful light: God was showing in His power and His brilliance, but I did not see Him. They were telling me that He was spreading his huge and pure arms.
I have seen the two Popes coming forward bowing their heads and hands joined. They were moving little by little, and once they were before God, whom I did not see, they knelt down.
All the angels were celebrating and singing: Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah.
God spoke to these two great Popes, while the Angels kept on running around and singing; despite the loud angelic singing, I heard the voice of God, but I would not see Him."
The follow up of Marisa's story and especially what God said, will be published in the presentation of the book that will collect the messages given during summer 2008.
On 14th September 2008, Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross, other two popes, Pius XI, Pius XII and Marisa's father went from the Waiting Paradise to the enjoyment of the Beatific Vision of God.
Jesus himself spoke about this wonderful event: "I, Jesus, received in the Paradise of the Beatific Vision, so they may enjoy God, Pius XI, Pius XII, and a lay gentleman, grandfather Aladino, whose children, grandchildren and grand-grandchildren are present. He has reached his bride. It was a wonderful scene to see these people entering Paradise where God is to be seen. I, Jesus, went to fetch them from the Waiting Paradise to bring them before the Father. You too must live this great joy that we are living." (Letter of God, 14th September 2008).
On October 24, the Feast of the Mother of the Eucharist, another Pope, whose name we do know at the moment, will be revealed by Our Lady only on that day, will go from the Waiting Paradise to the Beatific Vision of God.
These steps are more frequent and numerous than what we are told, we are made aware of those persons in any way related to us and the latter Popes because they often escort Our Lady when she appears at the thaumaturgic place and pray a lot for our Bishop whom they have addressed a few times, with the permission of God.
Jesus invited us to "pray so that other people may go from the Waiting Paradise to the Paradise of the Beatific Vision and enjoy God forever. Those who are in the Waiting Paradise are happy, but they do not see God. Little by little, when God decides, they will come before Him." (Letter of God, 14th September 2008).
