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

What a Beautiful Name it is

I WOKE this morning with a beautiful dream and a song in my heart—the power of it still flowing through my soul like a river of life. I was singing the name of Jesus, leading a congregation in the song What a Beautiful Name. You can listen to this live version of it below as you continue to read:

True Sonship

 

WHAT does it mean that Jesus desires to restore to mankind the “Gift of Living in the Divine Will”? Among other things, it is the restoration of true sonship. Let me explain…Continue reading

The Sea of Disquiet

 

WHY does the world remain in pain? Because it is the human, not Divine Will, that continues to govern mankind’s affairs. On a personal level, when we assert our human will over the Divine, the heart loses its equilibrium and plunges into disorder and unrest—even in the smallest assertion over God’s will (for just one flat note can make an otherwise perfectly tuned symphony sound disagreeable). The Divine Will is the anchor of the human heart, but when untethered, the soul is carried away upon the currents of sadness into a sea of disquiet.Continue reading

On Luisa and her Writings…

 

BEFORE I continue writing on the “Gift of Living in the Divine Will,” it’s time to address some of the emails and messages questioning the orthodoxy of the writings of Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta. Some of you have said that your priests have gone so far as to declare her a heretic. It’s perhaps necessary, then, to restore your confidence in Luisa’s writings which, I assure you, are approved by the Church.
