Way of Life
Community of Love Crucified
The vocation of the Love Crucified Community is to live passionately His love revealed at the Cross. There we receive the gift of His thirst, His gaze, His tears, His radical love which holds nothing back. Now He calls us to respond.
The Lord has given our Community this standard:
“ Suffer all with Me, no longer two but ONE, in my sacrifice of love"
As brothers and sisters we enter into a covenant with Christ and with each other to live fully this love in the heart of the Church, according to our spirituality (The Simple Path to Union with God) and mission.
At first, commitments may seem to be a burden, but the Lord promised: "My yoke is easy and my burden is light." -Matthew 11:30. "Sanctity does not consist first of all in doing extraordinary things, but in letting God act" -Pope Francis. God's grace makes this way of life liberating and joyful through love. It disposes us to receive a new life in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Our way of life embraces the following commitments:
1. Lives centered on the Eucharist
2. Marian Consecration
3. Docility to the Holy Spirit
4. Live The Simple Path to Union with God: Our Spiritual Formation Book
5. Victims of Love + Offering life for others; for priest
6. 5 Stones: Humility, Purity, Simplicity, Trust, Courage
7. Repentance and Conversion
8. Community Life
9. Obedience to Mother Church
10. Fidelity to our state in life
I propose to do ever what is most perfect. I propose to seek in all things Jesus and His Cross, in conformity with His holy will. I propose in my actions to pursue the interests of Christ and not my own. ...I will never be disquieted should circumstances prevent me from observing my 'Rule of life.' I will go on tranquilly. I will be flexible in the face of difficulties, humbly... then onward, ever onward! -Extract from her "Rule of life", Ven. Concepción Cabrera de Armida, Aug 21, 1894
1. Lives Centered on the Eucharist
The Eucharist is Christ, our life, the source and summit of all we are and do.
We seek to participate in Holy Mass daily, if possible.
At Holy Mass we unite with Jesus as His victim souls in His sacrifice of love to the Father. We go to die to self and receive new life in Him. We become living hosts. We offer ourselves with Jesus to the Father after the consecration of the Precious Blood with this prayer.
We commit to a minimum of once a week of adoration before the Blessed Sacrament to listen, adore, praise, intercede, give thanks, and accompany and CONSOLE Jesus and Mary in their suffering for souls.
For their work, prayers and apostolic endeavours, their ordinary married and family life, their daily labour, their mental and physical relaxation, if carried out in the Spirit, and even the hardships of life if patiently borne-all of these become spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ (cf. 1 Pt 2:5). During the celebration of the Eucharist these sacrifices are most lovingly offered to the Father along with the Lord’s body. Thus as worshipers whose every deed is holy, the lay faithful consecrate the world itself to God. John Paul II
See teaching Fr Jordi Rivero>>
2. Marian Consecration
To come to the most perfect intimate union of love with Christ—victim united to Victim— we need to consecrate ourselves to Mary, Mother and Bride, with the understanding and abandonment that she will bring us to the foot of the Cross. We commit to be forever "Totus Tuus" (All yours).
See “Importance of Consecration” letter from Lourdes Pinto to community>>
33 Days to Morning Glory -Preparation to Marian Consecration. by Fr Michael E. Gaitley, MIC; Marian Press.
Renew our consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Daily Recitation of the Rosary
3. Docility to the Holy Spirit
We live in the Spirit attentive to God and submitting to Him everything we do. We ask of Him in every situation, “Lord what do you want of me?” We trust in the Holy Spirit and invoke Him constantly.
See “Importance of Consecration” letter from Lourdes Pinto to community>>
“Yet there is no greater freedom than that of allowing oneself to be guided by the Holy Spirit, renouncing the attempt to plan and control everything to the last detail, and instead, letting him enlighten, guide and direct us, leading us wherever he wills.” Pope Francis p. 13
We welcome the Holy Spirit as our teacher and guide through living the Simple Path. It is He who leads us through the passage -- from the feet of Jesus crucified to receive the gift of self-knowledge, into the Sacred Heart of Jesus and brings us into the unity of the Most Holy Trinity.
“God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit which has been given to us” (Rom 5:5). Nevertheless, it is not enough to know the Spirit; we must welcome Him as the guide of our souls, as the “Teacher of the interior life” who introduces us to the Mystery of the Trinity, because He alone can open us up to faith and allow us to live it each day to the full.” Pope Benedict XVI, XXXIII World Youth Day, 2008
4. Live The Simple Path to Union with God: Our Spiritual Formation Book
Each Mother of the Cross (MOC) and Missionary of the Cross (MC) must be willing to allow The PATH to lead them through the painful purification and healing of their hearts into the depth of self- knowledge. Each person must persevere to:
Follow Christ daily to the Cross,
To die to self—to what we have become that we are not,
To make ourselves vulnerable and stripped of our masks and false identity
And suffer ALL with Christ, in order to be transformed into Love.
5. Victims of Love
Our life is an offering of love. Our crosses, including the injustices we suffer, as well as the daily duties, are powerful when done with great love and united with Christ. God waits for the FIAT that signals our total surrender. We don’t just offer something; we offer ourselves without reserve, our entire being, our will, our heart, our body and soul, one with Him. This is to be with Christ victims of love.
It is a victim soul's 'yes' that 'stirs into flame' the power of the Holy Spirit so that the Holy Spirit can lead a docile and willing soul to die with Me. It is this voluntary death that brings the soul to new life…I continue to thirst for love, but it is only the love of My victim souls that satisfies My thirst… Therefore, bring Me many victim souls. 2/1/11 Simple Path #124 p.331
See “Victim of Love” by Fr Jordi Rivero>>
6. 5 Stones: Humility, Purity, Simplicity, Trust and Courage
The MOC and MC must be committed to growing in these five virtues as we persevere in living the Simple Path and taking to heart the teachings of this community.
Virtues Needed as Warriors of Love
My little one, the time draws near. You hold the sword of the Spirit in the mission given to you. My family of LC are My warriors of love that will defeat the dragon in the decisive battle that draws near. Be ready to approach this evil in the same way that David approached Goliath. You will conquer the dragon in your littleness and purity because it is.
God who is with you. You must not fear and believe with the innocence and zeal of David… You each must also approach the battle with five stones.
1. First, the stone of humility, possessing the perfect knowledge of your nothingness and of My power and majesty.
2. Second, the stone of purity, purity of mind, heart, intention, word, desire…
3. Third, simplicity, detached from all, most especially from your ego.
4. Fourth, trust perfectly abandoned to My will.
5. Fifth, courage, courage rooted in love of Me to be perfectly obedient to My commands.
These stones are your weapons for battle, for the dragon will not be defeated according to the standards of the world but in the Light of Love… 1/18/12 Simple Path #148 p. 436
7. Repentance and Conversion
As Love Crucified, we are committed to go daily to the Cross to kiss the feet of Jesus crucified and beg the Spirit for the gift of self-knowledge, so that we can come in truth to know our sins, wounds and disordered tendencies. It is then, through this self-awareness, that we receive the gift of repentance.
Repentance is the gift of God that serves to pry open the hardened human heart so that My seeds of conversion can grow. Repentance is the Sword of the Spirit that opens the darkness within the human heart to be filled with God’s Light of truth, and the truth sets you free.
To live in repentance is to live clothed in the knowledge of who you are, which is misery, and the knowledge of who I Am, which is Love and Mercy.
To live in repentance is to live in the freedom of living in the embrace of Abba, Our Father.
Tell My souls to seek true repentance at the foot of My Cross and the power of My Love Crucified will set them free to live in My peace and the joy of My promise. 2/18/18
The soul that lives wrapped in the gift of knowledge grows in true humility and is then able to advance in My path on the wings of the Holy Spirit… It is here, at My feet, that you must persevere… 12/12/11 Simple Path #10 p.40. see full message >>
Confession: We are encouraged to go regularly to confession. There is no better way to make progress on our spiritual journey than by returning in humble repentance and love to God’s infinite mercy.
Kingdom of God vs Kingdom of Satan
Lourdes Pinto — December 2, 2021
What are the highlights of the decisive battle of the present time we are living?
What era comes after the decisive battle is won by the faithful few?
Notes for the above teaching
Decisive Battle: Kingdom of God vs. Satan's Kingdom
Feast of Christ the King
Today, the Church celebrates Christ the King. I told Pilate that My Kingdom is not of this world. My Kingdom is in heaven in perfect communion with My Father and the Spirit and with all the angels and Saints. My Kingdom is love, a love of total giving of self to the other and of a total receptivity from the other. This giving and receiving of pure, undefiled love is God. My Kingdom belongs to every soul that enters this communion of love (God) through My Cross. The path to enter this Kingdom is My Love crucified. As your crucified King, wearing My crown of thorns, clothed in the wounds of humanity, and covered in the Blood of My royal (priesthood), I revealed to you (humanity) the way into my Kingdom in heaven. Only the souls that adore Me as their crucified King and who desire to enter and live as one with Me on earth in My Love crucified will live My Kingdom in heaven on earth. Union with the crucified King is the only path to communion in the Trinity on earth. This is the Kingdom I came to establish on earth. Persevere during the time of great devastation, and you will live My Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.
(I asked the Lord how to persevere specifically with the issues of the vaccine and mandates…)
Many have received the vaccine to avoid suffering, others because they are clinging to their many attachments, others out of ignorance, but the majority because they did not seriously seek My Will and allowed themselves to be swept away by the many forces of Satan's temptations. Fear in the hearts of the multitude has come to light. This fear reveals the lack of love for Me in the hearts of the vast majority of souls, a love rooted in humility, intimacy, purity, abandonment, trust, and selflessness; therefore, the thief came unexpectedly and was able to enter their homes (hearts) and darken their souls to not recognize the signs of the times. Few, My little one, will persevere during this time of total darkness, which God is permitting as his justice. Remain in silence and prayer, and you, along with my faithful remnant, will participate with Me establishing My Kingdom on earth. Do not cave in, under any circumstance, to Satan's deception.
(How about priests in order to minister the sacraments?)
Did Peter and Paul follow the orders of the religious heads when they were told to stop preaching My Way? My priests can never join forces with Satan's evil to justify their ministry. They, too, must persevere as one with Me in my crucifixion during the time of great darkness. They, too, must be willing to suffer the injustice of being stripped of their faculties as I was stripped of all My glory, and this union of suffering with Me, the crucified King, will bring forth My purified Church. My little one, as mother with Mary and My spouse, you have the responsibility to help many persevere during the time of great darkness by speaking and living in My truth. Do not hesitate to share these words. Go in peace to live the truth of who you are as one with Me, your crucified King
I. You have the responsibility to help many persevere during the time of great darkness by speaking and living in My truth.
1. The truth of God's Kingdom
a. My Kingdom is love, a love of total giving of self to the other and of a total receptivity from the other. This giving and receiving of pure, undefiled love is God. My Kingdom belongs to every soul that enters this communion of love (God) through My Cross. The path to enter this Kingdom is My Love crucified.
Mt. 7:21 "Not everyone who says to me, `Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven."
As your crucified King, wearing My crown of thorns, clothed in the wounds of humanity, and covered in the Blood of My royal (priesthood), I revealed to you (humanity) the way into my Kingdom in heaven.
Only the souls that adore Me as their crucified King and who desire to enter and live as one with Me on earth in My Love crucified will live My Kingdom in heaven on earth.
Union with the crucified King is the only path to communion in the Trinity on earth. This is the Kingdom I came to establish on earth.
Persevere during the time of great devastation, and you will live My Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.
b. The truth of the battle to bring forth His Kingdom
My Kingdom will be established through the power of My little ones
God the Father:
I, the God of heaven and earth, will destroy all the enemies of God through My little ones that possess the strength of perfect faith in God Almighty. I, from the beginning of time, have used my little ones to confound the mighty ones of the world. It will not be different in the great, decisive battle that has now begun. I, the God of heaven and earth, have been preparing My army for the great battle that will cleanse My Sanctuary and the world and bring forth My Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. Rejoice, for My little mustard seed is part of My great army. Have courage because you, too, have come to believe in the God who loves you and sent his only-begotten Son to be a holy sacrifice for you. My Kingdom will be established through the power of My little ones who have joined themselves to the perfect and holy sacrifice of My Son. The faith of My pure victims of love past, present, and future are God's power that will defeat the enemies of God and usher in My Kingdom of Divine Love. Trust in all that has been spoken to you and continue to share these messages with the few willing to receive them. The ways of God are not the ways of the world.
c. The truth of the Reign of the Immaculate Heart of Mary as one with the Reign of the Holy Spirit
The era of the Holy Spirit is approaching
The Holy Spirit is not known yet, but the era of the Holy Spirit is approaching. He is one with the Incarnation of Jesus on earth. The Incarnation takes place through the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the Father and Son; they are inseparable. When Jesus is Incarnated in Mary's womb, the Holy Spirit is present as one in Christ. It is through the Incarnation that Mary receives the fullness of the Trinity. She is the first to live the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. The Incarnation of Jesus brings the mystical incarnation of the Trinity on earth. This reality of the Holy Spirit is still not known, yet it is the reality that God's saints of the end times will live in order to usher into the world the Kingdom of God. Believe in all that has been spoken to you, even though you do not have the capacity to understand. Go in peace.
Immaculate Conception and the Holy Spirit
The Immaculata is united to the Holy Spirit so closely that we really cannot grasp this union. But we can at least say that the Holy Spirit and Mary are two persons who live in such intimate union that they have but one sole life. (p.43)
A marvelous mystery lies hidden here: the mystery of the presence of a divine Person in a creature taken up so totally, down to the very roots of her being, into his control, and for all time (p.42). This helps us understand the MYSTICAL INCARNATION
Perfect obedience to the will of God
…But as you allow the Holy Spirit to possess your will united as one with me, your Mother, through perfect obedience to the Will of God, love will triumph, and it is I, the Immaculate, and the Holy Spirit that will triumph. Thus, the reign of my Immaculate Heart and the new Pentecost will be fulfilled in you, and God's mission will expand its fruitfulness…
My little one, only love can win this battle and bring forth the fulfillment of the triumph of my Son's death and resurrection. Only purified love in the fire of the Most Holy Trinity can and will pierce Satan and cast him into hell with all his dominions…. I am drawing you into my Immaculate Heart to be consumed in the fire of the Holy Spirit, my Spouse…
Feast of the Assumption, my consecration to Mary and the Holy Spirit
…Your union now with Mary, as one with the Holy Spirit, prepares you to confront Satan and his principalities in her victory, for she is the Queen Mother that has defeated the dragon in her perfect union with Me, her beloved Son. It is through her power in the Holy Spirit that you will fight the great battle…
Immaculate Conception and the Holy Spirit – p.84
2. The truth of Satan's kingdom
a. Satan is spreading the kingdom of global Communism, the new world order.
I want the LC website used to help form My martyrs of love for the decisive battle at hand. There will be wailing and grinding of teeth, massive confusion and desperation. This state of the world will open the doors for the New World Order and then will begin the time of great darkness and persecution for all My followers.
A CRUSADE OF VICTIM SOULS
Satan is working to bring forth his new world order of destruction, but My crusade of victim souls will possess the power of God to crush the head of Satan. You are the heel of the Queen of Heaven and Earth.
My little one, believe that My passion on the Cross and My interior crucifixion has obtained a new world order, not the order of Satan's destruction, but the order of Divine Love lived in God's Will.
b. Pope Benedict XVI, General Audience, April 20, 2011
What would the watchfulness to which the Lord invites us consist of? I would say that the disciples' somnolence (drowsy, sleepiness) in the course of history is a certain insensitiveness of the soul with regard to the power of evil, an insensibility to all the evil in the world. We do not wish to be unduly disturbed by these things, we prefer to forget them. We think that perhaps, after all, it will not be so serious and we forget.
Moreover, it is not only insensibility to evil when we should be watchful in order to do good, to fight for the force of goodness. Rather it is insensibility to God: this is our true sleepiness, this insensibility to God's presence that also makes us insensible to evil. We are not aware of God — he would disturb us — hence we are naturally not aware of the force of evil and continue on the path of our own convenience.
Nocturnal adoration of Holy Thursday, watching with the Lord, must be the very moment to make us reflect on the somnolence of the disciples, of the defenders of Jesus, of the Apostles, of us who do not see, who do not wish to see the whole force of evil nor do we wish to enter his passion for goodness…
c. The Great Deception
Satan is the prince of lies.
What are some of the lies?
The vaccine will protect us from being infected with the Covid virus.
Only through the vaccine will "herd immunity" take place
The vaccine is safe. VAERS (vaccine adverse effects reporting system)
Unvaccinated are spreading the virus.
Children need to be vaccinated for their protection and that of society.
What are the fruits of these lies?
Control through mandates
Loss of freedom
People cannot travel nor go to public places without the green card.
Doctors have lost their right to prescribe medications and treatments according to their professional knowledge and expertise.
Important drugs such as ivermectin & hydroxychloroquine have been made impossible in many countries to access, even by prescription of doctors, thus, bringing about the death and suffering of many.
The big pharmaceutical companies have gained greater control
Australia is now living under the new world order of Satan
Austria, Germany, Czech Republic…. Have begun the persecution of the unvaccinated by forcing them to remain in their homes, house arrest through police enforcement.
Satan has used the lies concerning Covid and the vaccine to open the path to total control of humanity. This total control, the new world order, will then impose greater force to make people accept Satan's agenda, the "culture of death," the "anti-Gospel," of abortion, euthanasia, gender ideology, critical race theory, white supremacy, the indoctrination of our children in schools, which has already begun, and through the lie of "climate change" the control of industry, oil, and so on.
In the 2nd paragraph of the message, Jesus sums up all the reasons for people caving into the lie:
Clinging to attachments
Lack of serious discernment seeking the will of God
Fear, which reveals the lack of love for Him, love rooted in humility, intimacy, purity, abandonment, trust, and selflessness.
And then Jesus explains the consequence of fear- thief came unexpectedly and was able to enter their homes (hearts) and darken their souls to not recognize the signs of the times.
Remain in silence and prayer, and you, along with my faithful remnant, will participate with Me establishing My Kingdom on earth. Do not cave in, under any circumstance, to Satan's deception.
d. 3rd paragraph refers to the question of priests being told by their bishops to vaccinate.
Did Peter and Paul follow the orders of the religious heads when they were told to stop preaching My Way? My priests can never join forces with Satan's evil to justify their ministry. They, too, must persevere as one with Me in my crucifixion during the time of great darkness. They, too, must be willing to suffer the injustice of being stripped of their faculties as I was stripped of all My glory, and this union of suffering with Me, the crucified King, will bring forth My purified Church.
My little one, as mother with Mary and My spouse, you have the responsibility to help many persevere during the time of great darkness by speaking and living in My truth. Do not hesitate to share these words.
3. A WARNING to LC
Satan will attempt to destroy you and My community of Love Crucified
My little one, be attentive to the signs of the times. You are in great danger. Satan will attempt to destroy you and My community of Love Crucified. You must remain in deep silence so that I can guide you in these perilous times. Unite My community at the foot of the Cross with Mary. Only the Holy Spirit can set you on fire as a burning oblation of sweet incense to the Father. This burnt and holy sacrifice will be received and blessed by the Father to aid the world during these dark times… it is a time of seclusion in prayer and silence with Mary preparing the world for the new Pentecost.
How are we being attacked individually and as a community?
Situations bring souls into the pit of their wound > darkness > Isolation >
As a community, through murmuring, especially through the teachings Fr Jordi and I have given concerning the signs of the times. Satan has used this to bring division, confusion, and doubts concerning the voice of God that has been leading this little mustard seed for years.
