How to Live In the Divine Will

 

GOD has reserved, for our times, the “gift of living in the Divine Will” that once was Adam’s birthright but was lost through original sin. Now it is being restored as the final stage of the People of God’s long journey back to the Father’s heart, to make of them a Bride “without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish” (Eph 5:27).Continue reading

Simple Obedience

 

Fear the LORD, your God,
and keep, throughout the days of your lives,
all his statutes and commandments which I enjoin on you,
and thus have long life.
Hear then, Israel, and be careful to observe them,
that you may grow and prosper the more,
in keeping with the promise of the LORD, the God of your fathers,
to give you a land flowing with milk and honey.

IMAGINE if you were invited to meet your favorite performer or perhaps a head of state. You would likely wear something nice, fix your hair just right and be on your most courteous behavior.Continue reading

The Mystery of the Kingdom of God

 

What is the Kingdom of God like?
To what can I compare it?
It is like a mustard seed that a man took
and planted in the garden.
When it was fully grown, it became a large bush
and the birds of the sky dwelt in its branches.

(Today’s Gospel)

 

EVERY day, we pray the words: “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.” Jesus would not have taught us to pray as such unless we were to expect the Kingdom yet to come. At the same time, the first words of Our Lord in His ministry were:Continue reading

The Resurrection of the Church

 

The most authoritative view, and the one that appears
to be most in harmony with Holy Scripture, is that,
after the fall of the Antichrist, the Catholic Church will
once again enter upon a period of
prosperity and triumph.

The End of the Present World and the Mysteries of the Future Life,
Fr. Charles Arminjon (1824-1885), p. 56-57; Sophia Institute Press

 

THERE is a mysterious passage in the book of Daniel that is unfolding in our time. It further reveals what God is planning at this hour as the world continues its descent into darkness…Continue reading

The Coming Descent of the Divine Will

 

ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE DEATH
OF SERVANT OF GOD LUISA PICCARRETA

 

HAVE you ever wondered why God continually sends the Virgin Mary to appear in the world? Why not the great preacher, St. Paul… or the great evangelist, St. John… or the first pontiff, St. Peter, the “rock”? The reason is because Our Lady is inseparably linked to the Church, both as her spiritual mother and as a “sign”:Continue reading

Preparing for the Era of Peace

Men must look for the peace of Christ in the Kingdom of Christ.
—POPE PIUS XI, Quas Primas, n. 1; Dec. 11th, 1925

Holy Mary, Mother of God, our Mother,
teach us to believe, to hope, to love with you.
Show us the way to his Kingdom!
Star of the Sea, shine upon us and guide us on our way!
—POPE BENEDICT XVI, Spe Salvin. 50

 

WHAT essentially is the “Era of Peace” that is coming after these days of darkness? Why did the papal theologian for five popes, including St. John Paul II, say it will be “the greatest miracle in the history of the world, second only to the Resurrection?”[1]Cardinal Mario Luigi Ciappi was the papal theologian for Pius XII, John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul I, and St. John Paul II; from Family Catechism, (Sept. 9th, 1993), p. 35 Why did Heaven say to Elizabeth Kindelmann of Hungary…Continue reading

The Warning of Love

 

IS it possible to break God’s heart? I would say that it is possible to pierce His heart. Do we ever consider that? Or do we think of God as being so big, so eternal, so beyond the seemingly insignificant temporal works of men that our thoughts, words, and actions are insulated from Him?Continue reading

Clash of the Kingdoms

 

JUST as one will be blinded by flying debris if he tries to stare into the furious winds of a hurricane, so too, one can be blinded by all the evil, fear and terror unfolding hour by hour right now. This is what Satan wants—to drag the world into despair and doubt, into panic and self-preservation in order to lead us to a “saviour.” What is unfolding right now is not another speed bump in world history. It is the final clash of two kingdoms, the final confrontation of this era between the Kingdom of Christ versus the kingdom of Satan…Continue reading
