  • Simple Path to Union with God – Book

    The Simple Path to Union with God Free book – USA only International orders View / Download Audio-Book – free E-Pub free Kindle The books are free, but any donation to Love Crucified to help spread this work & defray the cost of publishing & shipping is greatly appreciated. DONATIONS The Simple Path to Union with God is a practical, how-to-manual inspired by God to lead all people—priest, consecrated and lay faithful—to a true transformation of heart and into a more intimate union with Christ crucified. His desire is for us to be no longer two, but one in His sacrifice of love. ​ The Simple Path is the fruit of a journey that began when a simple, ordinary wife and mother responded with a “yes” to Christ’s invitation to be His victim soul. Her parish priest discerned the same call, which led to the foundation of Love Crucified Community. The Spirit led them to a new understanding of what a victim of love is and how to live it. This book encourages all souls to give their “yes” as one with Christ and Mary to this invitation. The remnant that responds becomes God’s “hidden force” that WILL pierce the darkness of Satan, raise up a holy transformed priesthood and usher in the New Pentecost with the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary for the Church and world! The Simple Path forms the saints of the end times to enter prepared the decisive battle. ​ St. Paul exclaims: “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me” (Galatians 2:20). ​ Jesus told us: "The greatest work of the Simple Path is leading souls into the deep of their own hearts to encounter Me. A soul’s obstacles to Me lie within the heart" The Simple Path to Union with God shows us how to live, in our ordinary lives, the joy St. Paul found in being “ONE” with the Victim, “Christ Crucified.” It is a path of transformation into the intimate love of God. ​ Souls who read this Simple Path with humble and docile hearts receive: The “wisdom of the Cross” which is “foolishness” to the world, but to all that receive this wisdom, the “power of God.” (1 Cor 1:17-18) The knowledge of how to “suffer with Christ” (Rom.8:17) the sufferings of their everyday, ordinary lives as the means to grow in an intimate relationship with Him. The understanding that suffering is a “treasured pearl” and the means to enter the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The GIFT of self-knowledge that leads to true repentance of the heart. The grace to enter their wounds and unite them to the wounds of Christ in order to be healed. They discover, in this process, that their wounds are a great treasure rather than a handicap! An understanding of how being a victim of love is the path to true freedom and happiness, as they become participants in the work of redemption. The understanding of how spiritual motherhood is part of God’s plan to restore the priesthood. Faith and hope, as the darkness of our times is explained through the approved apparitions of our Blessed Mother and the writings of the popes. God’s perfect plan of salvation is revealed. ​ — 453 pages ​

  • Sword of the Sufferer I – Love Crucified

    Sword of the Sufferer – Part I: Prayer & Poverty Lourdes Pinto – October 26, 2011 This talk is inspired on Pope Benedict's General audience of Oct 26, 2011: “It Is Not the Sword of the Conqueror That Builds Peace, But the Sword of the Sufferer ” ​ In front of St. Peter's Basilica there stand two great statues of Sts. Peter and Paul, which are easily identifiable: St. Peter holds keys in his hands, and Paul instead holds a sword. One who is unfamiliar with the story of the latter might think he is a great captain who commanded powerful armies and subjected peoples and nations with the sword, procuring for himself fame and riches by others' blood. Instead it is exactly the opposite: The sword he holds is the instrument with which Paul was put to death, with which he underwent martyrdom and shed his own blood. His battle was not one of violence and of war but of martyrdom for Christ. His only weapon was the proclamation of "Jesus Christ and Him Crucified" (1 Corinthians 2:2). His preaching was not based "on plausible words and wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and power" (Verse 4). He dedicated his life to spreading the Gospel's message of reconciliation and peace, spending all his energy in order that it might resound to the very ends of the earth. ​ And this was his strength(St Paul's): He did not seek a tranquil, comfortable life, far from difficulties and contradictions; rather, he wore himself out for the sake of the Gospel, he gave himself entirely and without reserve, and in this way he became the great messenger of Christ's peace and reconciliation. ​ The sword that St. Paul holds also recalls the power of truth, which can often wound, can hurt: the Apostle remained faithful to this truth to the end; he served it; he suffered for it; he gave over his life for it. This same logic holds true also for us if we want to be bearers of the kingdom and peace announced by the Prophet Zechariah and fulfilled by Christ: We must be willing to pay personally, to suffer in the first person misunderstanding, rejection, persecution. It is not the sword of the conqueror that builds peace, but the sword of the sufferer, of he who knows how to give his very life. God and peace Whoever is on the path to God cannot but transmit peace, whoever builds peace cannot but come closer to God –Pope Benedict XVI. ​ Prayer As Christians, we believe that the most precious contribution we can make to the cause of peace is that of prayer ... The Lord can enlighten our minds and hearts and guide us to be builders of justice and reconciliation in our daily lives and in the world. –Pope Benedict XVI. ​ Our Lord to us on prayer (8/23/2010): When I say your life is a prayer, your life is an offering. To offer Me your life is the perfect prayer. Your thoughts directed to Me, directed to Love, is a prayer. Your touch is a most beautiful prayer. Your words of encouragement and love to others is a prayer. Your efforts to bring peace and unity in your families is a prayer. Your smile is a prayer. But your most perfect prayer is your pure suffering united to Me and My Mother. The prayer of pure suffering is the sweetest fragrance that reaches and delights the Heart of our Father. This is also the prayer that produces an abundance of fruit. This is the prayer that is most united to Mine as I intercede before the throne of My Father. This is why My Mother's suffering of solitude produced and continues to produce showers of graces upon the world. I wish the Mothers and Missionaries of the Cross to be perfected in the prayer of suffering. It is through contemplative prayer that you come to know Me and the prayer in which I fill, guide and form you, but it is the prayer of suffering in which you honor, console and love Me and participate in the redemption of souls. The prayer of thanksgiving and praise should be your every breath. ​ Poverty Pope Benedict XVI: (In Bethlehem) The Angel announces a great joy which will come to all the people, and which is tied to a sign of poverty: a babe wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger (cf. Luke 2:8-12). And a multitude of the heavenly host sings 'Glory to God in the highest and on the earth peace among men, whom He loves' (Verse 14, to men of goodwill. ​ But let us also go to the final moments of Christ's life, when He enters Jerusalem welcomed by a jubilant crowd. The Prophet Zechariah's announcement (cf. Zechariah 9:10) of the coming of a meek and humble king returned to the minds of Jesus' disciples in a particular way after the events of the Passion, Death and Resurrection -- of the Paschal Mystery – when they reconsidered with the eyes of faith the Master's joyous entrance into the Holy City. He rides upon an ass, which was borrowed (cf. Matthew 21:2-7): He does not ride in a stately carriage or on horseback like the great ones. He does not enter Jerusalem accompanied by a powerful army of chariots and charioteers. He is a poor king, the king of God's poor. In the Greek text, the word praeîs appears, which means "gentle", "meek"; Jesus is the king of the anawim , of those whose hearts are free of the lust for power and material riches, free of the will and the search for dominion over others. Jesus is the king of all those who possess that interior freedom that enables them to overcome the greed and egoism of the world, and who know that God is their only wealth. ​ Union with the Cross Pope Benedict XVI: Jesus is the poor king among the poor, meek among those who desire to be meek. In this way, He is the king of peace, thanks to the power of God, which is the power of good, the power of love. He is a king who causes the chariots and charioteers of battle to disappear, who will shatter the bows of war; He is a king who will bring peace to fulfillment on the Cross by joining heaven and earth, and by throwing a bridge of brotherhood between all peoples. The Cross is the new bow of peace, the sign and instrument of reconciliation, of forgiveness, of understanding, a sign of the love that is stronger than all violence and oppression, stronger than death: Evil is conquered with good, with love. ​ This is the new kingdom of peace whose king is Christ; and it is a kingdom that extends over all the earth. The Prophet Zechariah announces that this humble, peaceful king will have dominion "from sea to sea, from the River to the ends of the earth" (Zechariah 9:10). The reign inaugurated by Christ has universal dimensions. The horizons of this poor and gentle king are neither a territory nor a state, but rather the very ends of the earth; transcending every barrier of race, language and culture, He creates communion; He creates unity. ​ And where do we see this announcement fulfilled today? The prophecy of Zechariah shines with splendor in the great net of Eucharistic communities that extends over all the earth. These form a great mosaic of communities in which this gentle and peaceful king's sacrifice of love is made present; they form a multitude of "islands of peace" that radiate peace. Everywhere, in every circumstance and reality, in every culture, from the great cities with their palaces to tiny villages with their humble abodes, from towering cathedrals to little chapels, He comes, He makes Himself present; and in entering into communion with Him, men are also united with one another in one body, overcoming division, rivalries, and resentment. The Lord comes in the Eucharist to take us away from our individualism, our particularities that exclude others, to form of us one body, one kingdom of peace in a divided world. ​ Dear family, this is essential to our way of life. This is the meaning of poverty. 1-Jesus' humility, gentleness, meekness and poverty must become our own. He is the king of the anawim. 2-For this transformation to occur we must be a Eucharistic community, 3-Not just receiving Him but joining His sacrifice of love, becoming one with Him and thus making him present through us. (Victims of love in Him) 4-This is the way of unity with God and with our brothers and sisters. This is the only way to overcome individualism, division, rivalries and resentment. This is the power of the cross applied to us. ​ Jesus does not shepherd wolfs but only sheep Pope Benedict XVI: But how can we build this kingdom of peace in which Christ is king? The commandment which he leaves his Apostles and, through them, each of us is: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations... and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age” (Mt 28:19). Like Jesus, the messengers of peace of his kingdom must set out, they must respond to his invitation. They must go, but not with the might of war or the force of power. In the Gospel passage that we listened to Jesus sends 70 disciples out into the great harvest, which is the world, inviting them to pray the Lord of the harvest that there may be no lack of labourers in his harvest (cf. Lk 10:1-3); but he does not send them with powerful means, but “as lambs in the midst of wolves” (v. 3), without purse, bag, or sandals (cf. v. 4). St John Chrysostom, in one of his homilies, comments: “For so long as we are sheep, we conquer: though ten thousand wolves prowl around, we overcome and prevail. But if we become wolves, we are worsted, for the help of our Shepherd departs from us” (Homily 33, 1: PG 57, 389). Christians must never yield to the temptation to become wolves among wolves; it is not with might, with force, with violence that Christ’s kingdom of peace grows, but with the gift of self, with love carried to the extreme, even towards enemies. Jesus does not conquer the world with the force of arms, but with the force of the Cross, which is the true guarantee of victory. The consequence of this for those who want to be disciples of the Lord, his envoys, is to be prepared for the passion and martyrdom, to lose their own life for him, so that in the world goodness, love and peace may triumph. This is the prerequisite needed to say, upon entering into every situation: “Peace be to this house” (Lk 10:5). ​ ​ Back

  • Spiritual Motherhood for Priest 2019 | Love Crucified

    Spiritual Motherhood for Priests Lourdes Pinto – Germany — February, 2019 ⇧ Notes are here Back

  • Priests Called to Live as Christ – Love Crucified Comm.

    A Call for Priests to Live as Christ, Priest and Victim The Lord desires to raise up an army of holy “priest-victims”; martyrs of love who are willing to be transformed as ONE with Christ Crucified. It is they who will stand strong during the times of darkness as the “apostles of light” protecting and defending the Bride of Christ, the Church. ​ The Lord speaks of His desire for priests to the Love Crucified Community: ​ My daughter….My covenant with each of them calls them to love as I have loved; to love with My Heart. My love is sacrificial, My love is gentle and patient but above all my love is crucified. I came upon the earth desiring only the cross; My sons must have the same love of the cross I had. It is only though crucified love that their lives will bear abundant fruit; It is only through their crucified love that they will be transformed by the fire of the Holy Spirit into Me. It is only through crucified love My priests will become the fortified wall of bronze protecting My Church from the principalities of death. This is what you must tell My priests. If they do not listen to My Words they will perish during the time of great darkness. — 3/30/10 See full message🔗 ​ I am raising up My army of holy priests, My Green Berets: Men of fortitude, men of courage, holy men, men willing to lay down their lives for their God. It is these holy priests that will be My apostles of Light during the time of great darkness that is approaching. The time is at the horizon. —3/11/10 See full message🔗 ​ The Church has a clear vision for a transformed priesthood. This vision of priestly victimhood is witnessed by the life of saintly priests like St. John Vianney, Padre Pio, and St. Maximilian Kolbe. They were not just good men who served God and offered sacrifice, but men transformed into alter-Christus, forged to be priest-victims of love by the Holy Spirit in the womb of Mary and in the power of the Cross. Men consecrated to Mary and the Eucharist. ​ In order to fully realize his priestly vocation of being priest and victim, he must uncover his identity as victim. The crisis in the priesthood is reflected in the absence of this identity. Venerable Bishop Fulton Sheen in his book, The Priest Is Not His Own , stresses the crucial need for priests to embrace their victimhood: ​ "We who have received the Sacrament of Orders call ourselves “priests”. The author does not recall any priest ever having said, “I was ordained a ‘victim’”, nor did he ever say, “I am studying to be a victim.” That seemed almost alien to being a priest. The seminary always told us to be “good” priests; never were we told to be willing victims. And yet was not Christ, the Priest, a Victim? Did He not come to die? Pagan priests, Old Testament priests, medicine men, all offered a sacrifice apart from themselves. But not Our Lord. He was Sacerdos-Victima. This being so, just as we miss much in the life of Christ by not showing that the shadow of the Cross cast itself even over the crib and the carpenter shop as well as over His public life, so we have a mutilated concept of our priesthood if we envisage it apart from making ourselves victims in the prolongation of His Incarnation.” Urgent Messages to Priests ​ Blessed Conchita received messages from the Lord concerning the priesthood from September 1927 to January 1931. The Lord stressed the urgency for priestly sanctification. He reveals His total love as an unconditional offering to the Father in the Holy Spirit through a full immolation of Himself. He explains to Conchita the importance of His priests living as victims as ONE with Him, The Victim, as the means of their transformation into Love. ​ The priestly souls indispensably have to be victims; they have to become a gift, offering themselves pure to My Father, in union with Me and giving themselves up for souls, as I did. — The Priesthood of Christ and the Ministerial Priesthood in the Experience and Message of Concepcion Cabrera de Armida, Juan Esquerda Bifet, 11. ​ Jesus reveals to Conchita His Sacred Heart and how His Heart loves. He desires for every priest to be one heart with His, loving as He loves, in total immolation: ​ Love which does not crucify is not love… How did I love? It was with a universal love of charity, as the Word knows how to love: all charity, with a love of sacrifice, immolating Myself, forgiving, forgetting and attaining graces for them with My sorrow; with a most pure divine intention; with a sublime goal of charity for souls and for Divinity, of giving Him glory. My expiatory love is incomprehensible to all human intelligence. (Ibid. 11) ​ The spiritual and apostolic value of priestly life depends on his willingness to be crucified with Christ. In a message to a Mother of the Cross of the Love Crucified Community, Christ emphasizes the importance of all priests being a witness to the Gospel message of the Cross: ​ I am the High Priest. I am the perfect unblemished holy sacrifice of the Father for the redemption of mankind. The priests that came after Me were born of My Pierced Heart; were born of My crucified love. As a woman labors to give life, My priests were conceived in My crucified Heart and were brought to life through the passage in My side created by the spear. Therefore, every priest is called to be ONE with the Word of the Cross. Of themselves they can do nothing and are nothing, but united as ONE to Love crucified they are the power of God. The mission I desire is to bring all My priests to union with Love Crucified. It is here that lies the power of God I want them to possess…. 9/21/10 ​ When priests fail to embrace their victimhood by not becoming ONE with Christ Crucified, they fail to be transformed by the Holy Spirit and live a disordered priesthood with serious consequences for themselves and their flock. ​ Tell My sons that they have gone astray from the path I set before them. They have gone astray from the narrow path that leads to life. Their hearts have grown cold and hardened because they seek their fulfillment in themselves. It is only through a life of penance and mortification that the flesh can be purified. Tell them, My daughter, to gaze at My love crucified and to allow My Mother to bring them to the foot of the Cross with those that love Me (I felt St. John and Mary Magdalene). 5/24/10 Without this transformation into alter Christus their vocation runs the risk of bringing scandal and turmoil to the Church and world. These priestly scandals pierce violently the Heart of God as Jesus laments to Conchita: ​ And the sins of scandal of my priests, what immensity they encompass! What glory they remove from me and how deep an extent they pierce My Heart! The radius those sins of scandal of my priests encompasses is incalculable for man; and only in eternity in the vision of that great light will they come to see the almost infinite evil that they produce with those innumerable sins. And I say innumerable because a sin of priestly scandal is multiplied and extends to generations.... [These hidden sins] attack the faith, blind hope and kill charity. —To My Priests , Concepción Cabrera De Armida 20. ​ Encouragement To Live This Call ​ In the following letter a priest encourages his spiritual son/priest to live his vocation as a victim with Christ. His council reflects the anointing of God’s wisdom for all priests: ​ My Dear Spiritual Son Priest , You have made it to the 10th Station of your Priesthood, stripped of a lot of this world with more to shed in the future. ​ The Universal Church and the Priesthood of Christ into which you were ordained ten years ago today has also been stripped of its holiness, dignity and even Episcopal unity by the exposure of its sinfulness. ​ The Temple is being cleansed, shaken and persecuted. Eventually all that will be left is the Bruised Face of the Suffering Servant, and the more you resemble Him in this way, the closer your Heavenly Mother will enfold you in her arms. ​ Resolve to increase your time before the Blessed Sacrament to console Him and to become a Living Host in the eyes of His People. ​ Many of His People and Ministers are still clinging to tradition, customs, incense, Latin liturgy, even the Communion altar rail, like passengers clinging to the rail of the Titanic thinking that this will give them safety and comfort. But only till we let go of everything and become ONE with the VICTIM will we truly be His Body, the Church, not in the nostalgia of the past, but in the reality of the POWER OF CHRIST CRUCIFIED IN THE PRESENT . ​ You are very learned, my spiritual son, in Theology, Cannon Law, even languages and carry within you a hidden false pride in all of this, hidden from yourself, but not from me who loves you as Paul loved Timothy. But someday in the future you will see more clearly that the PRIESTHOOD you received 10 years ago today is not in the grandeur of your status, wisdom or earthly knowledge, but solely in the SACRIFICE OF THE LAMB OF GOD. ​ And someday when you allow yourself to be stripped of everything—health, prestige, reputation, knowledge, connections, earthly wisdom and pastoral power you will achieve the joy and fullness of the Priesthood you celebrate today. This is my Prayer, Prophecy and Gift to you today. ​ It was a privilege and an honor to support you financially, and be in those moments your earthly father, not only for who you are today, but for who I trust you will become in time. ​ With heartfelt love and gratitude on this milestone of your 10th Ordination Anniversary, ​ ​ Msgr. Calkins, Padre Pio, Priest and Victim🔗 Back Messages1+2

  • Christ's Hands Tied | Love Crucified

    Christ's Hands Tied Lourdes Pinto — August 4, 2018 Christ comes to us as a spouse, bound and rejected. He says that He needs us to take His mercy to all. ​ My Dear Sisters, ​ Saturday at our Mothers of the Cross Cenacle, the Lord wanted to come to us as Jesus bound by the hands and sentenced to die. This statue was brought by Zilkia to our Cenacle, it is a pilgrim statue from the Trinitarians used to pray for persecuted Christians. As you gaze at the image, remember the words from our Blessed Mother to the MOC concerning our mystical bridal gown: Around your waist is a rope. This represents the rope tied around Jesus' hands during His trial. You unbound Him with your love and the rope, now around you, symbolizes your union with Him in His agony and crucifixion. Through Him, with Him and in Him you will help unbound many souls, especially priests, from the bondage of sin. Below are the words Jesus placed in my heart during adoration for the MOC: I need you. I need each of you to bring My tenderness in mercy to the world. It is love, manifested through the tenderness of God, that has the power to touch the hardened hearts of many souls. My little ones, learn from Mary, the Mother of God and your Mother. Her tenderness is manifested in Her silence as the love and mercy of God radiates from her gaze. Her gaze is the gaze of God and her gaze has the power to penetrate the darkness of Satan. God the Father desires that each of you become the gaze of Mary upon the earth. ​ How my Lord do we become Mary’s gaze? ​ By learning to live My tenderness through silence. My little ones, the eyes are the window of the heart and it is I who dwells in your hearts. You must believe that through your fiats to be My victim souls I have taken My abode in your hearts. Allow My merciful love to radiate through your gaze through the power of silence. The power of God radiated through Mary through the power of her silence. Remember what I taught you about silence. ​ May we REMAIN in SILENCE GAZING into the Heart of Jesus as we participate in His SILENT CRY for souls. Back

  • Complete What is Lacking in the Sufferings of Christ

    Complete What is Lacking in the Sufferings of Christ Nina Heerema n — December 29, 2022 Completing what is lacking in the sufferings of Christ Dr. Nina Heereman, SSD . Associate Professor of Sacred Scriptures/Chair of Sacred Scriptures December 29, 2022 Outline Lacking in Christ’s afflictions Col. 1:24. I am now rejoicing in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I am completing what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions for the sake of his body, that is, the church. How can the above be reconciled with: There is only one mediator. 1Tim. 2:5 For there is one God; there is also one mediator between God and humankind, Christ Jesus, himself human. ​ His one sacrifice is effective forever. Heb. 9:26 for then he would have had to suffer again and again since the foundation of the world. But as it is, he has appeared once for all at the end of the age to remove sin by the sacrifice of himself. ​ The instrument of our redemption is His body: Col. 1:22 He has now reconciled (us) in his fleshly body through death, so as to present you holy and blameless and irreproachable before him— ​ His body includes all those incorporated through baptism 1Cor. 12:27 Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it. Gal. 2:20 and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. The martyrs partake of His sacrifice. They are one with Jesus under the altar of sacrifice. Rev. 6:9 When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slaughtered for the word of God and for the testimony they had given; How is it possible for our sufferings to be united to His since He died 2000 years ago? Answer: Because He incorporates us into His body in Baptism and in the Eucharist! In baptism, our identification with Christ becomes a reality. We are His Body. 2 Cor 5:14 For the love of Christ urges us on, because we are convinced that one has died for all; therefore all have died. Romans 6:3-4 Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 Therefore we have been buried with him by baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. Col 2:12-14 When you were buried with him in baptism, you were also raised with him through faith in the power of God, who raised him from the dead. 13 And when you were dead in trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive together with him, when he forgave us all our trespasses, 14 erasing the record that stood against us with its legal demands. He set this aside, nailing it to the cross. 1 Cor 12:13, 27 For in the one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and we were all made to drink of one Spirit. 27 Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it. Rom. 6:5 For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his. Therefore: Gal. 2:20 It is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Re-lived in the Eucharist. “Remembrance” 1 Cor 11:24-26 When he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” 25 In the same way he took the cup also, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes For the Jews, “Remembrance” meant not just bringing to memory but actually living the event in the present. This is how they celebrate Passover, the exodus from Egypt. Through the Eucharist, Christ´s risen body continues to atone for our sins and we atone as one with Him. Participation in atonement. Thus, the importance of partaking in the Eucharist worthily. 1Cor. 11:27 Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be answerable for the body and blood of the Lord. 1Cor. 10:16 The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a sharing in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a sharing in the body of Christ? Christ’s atoning sacrifice: Four types from the OT taken up in NT applied to Christ: (1) Atoning sacrifice: Romans 3:25 Whom God put forward as a sacrifice of atonement (or: place of atonement) by his blood, effective through faith. He did this to show his righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over the sins previously committed; 1 John 2:2 He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. (2) Blood of the Covenant Ex. 24:3 Moses came and told the people all the words of the LORD and all the ordinances; and all the people answered with one voice, and said, “All the words that the LORD has spoken we will do.” 4 And Moses wrote down all the words of the LORD. He rose early in the morning, and built an altar at the foot of the mountain, and set up twelve pillars, corresponding to the twelve tribes of Israel. 5 He sent young men of the people of Israel, who offered burnt offerings and sacrificed oxen as offerings of well-being to the LORD. 6 Moses took half of the blood and put it in basins, and half of the blood he dashed against the altar. 7 Then he took the book of the covenant, and read it in the hearing of the people; and they said, “All that the LORD has spoken we will do, and we will be obedient.” 8 Moses took the blood and dashed it on the people, and said, “See the blood of the covenant that the LORD has made with you in accordance with all these words.” Jer. 31:31 The days are surely coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah. 32 It will not be like the covenant that I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt—a covenant that they broke, though I was their husband, says the LORD. 33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34 No longer shall they teach one another, or say to each other, “Know the LORD,” for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, says the LORD; for I will forgive their iniquity, and remember their sin no more. (3) Paschal lamb Celebrated by Jews every year. Taken up many times in NT Cf: John 1:29,36; 19:36. (4) Suffering Servant Is 53:10 Yet it was the will of the LORD to crush him with pain. When you make his life an offering for sin, he shall see his offspring, and shall prolong his days; through him the will of the LORD shall prosper. What the four have in common: A Blood rite. In NT, the priest is also the victim: Christ. His offers His own blood. God provides the means of atonement Lev 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood; and I have given it to you for making atonement for your lives on the altar; for, as life, it is the blood that makes atonement. Leviticus 1:4-5; 16:15-16. You shall lay your hand on the head of the burnt offering, and it shall be acceptable in your behalf as atonement for you. 5 The bull shall be slaughtered before the LORD; and Aaron’s sons the priests shall offer the blood, dashing the blood against all sides of the altar that is at the entrance of the tent of meeting. Lev. 16:15 He shall slaughter the goat of the sin offering that is for the people and bring its blood inside the curtain, and do with its blood as he did with the blood of the bull, sprinkling it upon the mercy seat and before the mercy seat. 16 Thus he shall make atonement for the sanctuary, because of the uncleannesses of the people of Israel, and because of their transgressions, all their sins; and so he shall do for the tent of meeting, which remains with them in the midst of their uncleannesses. The German Bible scholar, Hartmut Gese, explains: The act of atonement is not to be thought of as a transfer of sins with the subsequent execution of the one bearing the sins, the sacrificial animal. In that case, there would be only a substitution that excludes one party; instead, in cultic atonement, the sacrifice of the victim’s life is a substitution that includes the one bringing the sacrifice. Moreover, the giving up of life is not simply an act of destruction. The animal is not killed in order to bring about a destruction of the sinful object or to achieve appropriate punishment of the one who is guilty of the sin, but rather a holy ritual of blood is performed. The animal is taken to the sanctuary of God, where it comes into contact with what is holy. Cultic atonement, thus is not accomplished merely by the death of the sacrifice, but in the commitment of life to what is holy, in contact with holiness. In the inclusive substitution by means of atoning sacrifice, this ritual brings Israel into contact with God. The new, positive aspect of atonement finds its expression in the blood rites. St. Albertus Magnus, in de mysterio missae , explains the different meanings of the priest’s greeting at the beginning of the offering, “the Lord be with you.” He explains: Therefore, on this account of sanctification, the celebrant says: “The Lord is with you,” turning to the people. “The Lord,” I say, “is with you,” so that you may be offered as a sacrifice to God. … The Lord is with you, so that you may be incorporated into the sacrificial offering. For the Lord is with you when you offer yourselves to him and he accepts you, when he incorporates you into his sacrifice, when he makes you one and unites you. And he says, “Let us pray,” because a great and efficacious and pure prayer is required in order that the people may be incorporated into the body of Christ and offered to God. For prayer is the pious affection of the mind directed towards God, and the people to be offered to the Lord must first be lifted up to him with all their affection, so that they may become a sacrifice worthy of God. Afterward, in the common memory of the living “Memento Domine ,” it is subjoined: “and all those gathered here before you,” and who are already offering themselves as a sacrifice, as they themselves are offering the sacrifice, that they themselves may be offered to you in union with the sacrifice. [As St. Paul writes in] Rom 12:1: “I beseech you, brethren, through the mercy of God, that you may present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy, pleasing to God, your reasonable submission.” Novus Ordo (Eucharistic prayer IV): “Look, O Lord, upon the Sacrifice which you yourself have provided for your Church, and grant in your loving kindness to all who partake of this one Bread and one Chalice that, gathered into one body by the Holy Spirit, they may truly become a living sacrifice in Christ to the praise of your glory.” Finally, St. Albert comments on the command to receive the body of Christ: And eat of it, all of you”: (you my) disciples, so that you may all be incorporated into me and know my spirit: for otherwise you cannot be offered to God the Father. Conclusion: In Blessed Conchita, “the aspect of oblation acquires an intrinsically Eucharistic connotation; in offering herself, Conchita would not only be assimilated to the Incarnate Word, but would be transformed into Him by means of compenetration and union with the Divine Essence, in order to be one with Christ (cf. Jn 17:20-21). That is why, by the realization of a sort of transubstantiation into Jesus, Conchita could truly say: “This is My Body, this is My Blood,” because she no longer lived her own life, but the life of Christ, who lived in her (cf. Gal 2:20). Allow me to end with the prayer of one who has walked the talk, the Vietnamese Redemptorist brother, mystic and martyr, Marcel Van: Oh Jesus! You died through love, and now you are still greedy for sufferings in the heart of the one you love. I offer my heart to you without regret, to welcome with you dishonour and sadness, to fall with you on the way, to support the multitude of men and lift up the sinful soul, to atone for, with you, the sins which do not cease to accumulate each day. Yes, I wish to mingle a little of my blood with the blood of your divine Heart, for the purification of souls. Back

  • Victim Souls Crusade – Love Crucified

    A Crusade of Victim Souls Therese of Lisieux is one of these little souls. Through her "little way," God brings a new understanding of victims of love to the world. She offers herself to Christ as a voluntary oblation, “That I may live in one act of perfect Love, I OFFER MYSELF AS A VICTIM OF HOLOCAUST TO THY MERCIFUL LOVE… “ (Story of a Soul Ch.XII) ​ St. Therese prophesied that the legion of little souls, victims of merciful Love, would become as numerous “as the stars of heaven and the sands of the seashore.” “It will be terrible for Satan; it will help the Blessed Virgin to crush his proud head completely.” (St. Thérése of Lisieux, The Legion of Mary Handbook, 256-257.) In the last one hundred and fifty years the Church has seen an unprecedented call from our Lord and Blessed Mother for victim souls, a gift of God in view of the crisis the Church and world is undergoing. The ways of God are not the ways of the world. He will raise up a transformed priesthood, pierce the darkness of Satan and usher in the new Pentecost with the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, not through more programs, but through His “hidden force”, a crusade of victim souls. Important Messages and Saints for These Times St. Therese of Lisieux 1873-1897 St. Therese lives her victimhood of love as a warrior to help priests obtain victory. She writes to a priest, “Like Joshua you fight on the field, as for me, I am your little Moses, and without ceasing my heart is lifted up to obtain victory." She lives in the Heart of Christ Crucified, therefore, she also suffers and laments with Jesus for priests that are not holy: “How many bad priests there are, how many priests who aren't holy enough! We pray, we suffer for them..., do you understand the cry of my heart?” (Convent letter, cited by Cardinal Cordes, in Why Priests? p 55) Blessed Conchita 1862-1937 Blessed Conchita, wife and mother of nine children, is an example of the fire of love that makes us victims with Christ. Jesus told her: “Offer yourself as a victim for my priests. Unite yourself to My sacrifice for gaining them graces.” (Conchita, A Mother’s Spiritual Diary, 85). Today’s world has a need not only for religious, but also married and single victim souls that will surrender their entire will to God for the sanctification of priests and families. ​ Jesus asks Conchita for a crusade of victim souls-- generous men and women in all vocations of life to help priests and families: “I am going to ask you one thing: a crusade of victim souls to the glory of My Father following the spirit of the cross.” ​ “… It is a union of pure souls, without self interest, victims in the midst of the world, who, fulfilling their duties, with love and zeal and a sacrificial life, give me glory.” Jesus wants Conchita to give Him holy priests. United to Him, she will belong to priests in the sense that her life will be an oblation for them. Jesus tells her: ​ “This will truly be a solace to My heart, giving Me holy priests. Tell Me you accept, that you will belong with Me to priests always since your mission on behalf of them will continue in heaven.” Mary Appears as "Rosa Mystica" to Pierina 1947-1966 The apparitions of our Blessed Mother as Rosa Mystica in Montichiari are specifically a call to priests, religious and consecrated souls and a call to the world to pray, sacrifice and do penance for them. ​ First Apparition - Spring of 1947 ​ “Our Lady, a beautiful woman, wore a violet dress and a white veil around her head. She was very sad; her eyes were filled with tears which fell to the floor. Her breast was pierced by three big swords. Our Lady said, ‘Prayer-Penitence-Expiation.’” Second Apparition - June 13, 1947 ​ Our Lady appeared dressed in white and instead of the three swords she had three roses: a white one, a red one, and a golden one. She brings a message of hope with powerful promises to male and female institutes, religious orders and secular priests: “I promise those religious institutes, orders, and secular priests who venerate me in this special way my special protection, an increase of spiritual vocations, fewer betrayed vocations, and great sanctity among the servants of God. I wish the 13th of each month to be celebrated as the day of Mary... I wish the 13th of July of each year to be celebrated in honor of 'Rosa Mystica.'" ​ Third Apparition - October 22, 1947 ​ Our Lady explained to Pierina the meaning of the three swords and the three roses: The first sword means loss of the vocation as a priest or a monk. ​ The second sword means priests, monks, and nuns who live in deadly sin. ​ The third sword means priests and monks who commit the treason of Judas. While giving up their vocation, they often lose also their faith, their eternal beatitude, and become enemies of the Church. The white rose means the spirit of prayer. ​ The red rose means the spirit of expiation and sacrifice. ​ The yellow or golden rose means the spirit of penitence. Fourth Apparition - November 16, 1947 ​ She said, "Our Lord, my Divine Son, is tired of the many offenses, the severe offenses, the sins against holy purity . . . "He wants to send another flood of punishment… I have interceded that He may be merciful once more. Therefore, I ask for your prayer and penitence to expiate these sins." Blessed Elena Aiello 1895-1951 (Simple path 430-431) Sister Elena Aiello was beatified on the Feast of the Holy Cross, 2011, by Pope Benedict XVI. The prophecies given to her by Jesus and Mary are very serious and urgent. Again, souls are asked by our Lord and Blessed Mother to suffer for priests and pray and do penance for the conversion of the world. ​ Jesus: The Church is opposed, and the priests are despised because of the bad ones who give scandal. Help Me, by suffering, to repair for so many offenses, and thus save at least in part, humanity precipitated in a slough of corruption and death. Then the Madonna appeared to me. She was dressed in black, with seven swords piercing Her Immaculate Heart. Coming closer, with an expression of profound sorrow, and with tears on her cheeks, she spoke to me, saying: Cry out until the priests of God lend their ears to my voice, to advise men that the time is near at hand, and if men do not return to God with prayers and penances, the world will be overturned in a new and more terrible war. Arms most deadly will destroy peoples and nations! The dictators of the earth, specimens infernal, will demolish the churches and desecrate the Holy Eucharist, and will destroy things most dear. In this impious war, much will be destroyed of that which has been built by the hands of man. Clouds with lightning flashes of fire in the sky and a tempest of fire shall fall upon the world. This terrible scourge, never before seen in the history of humanity, will last seventy hours. Godless persons will be crushed and wiped out. Many will be lost because they remain in their obstinacy of sin. Then shall be seen the power of light over the power of darkness. >>> Our Lady of Akita, Japan 1973-1981 The Second World War brought incredible devastation upon Japan. Atomic bombs annihilated two of its cities. It is, therefore, remarkable that Our Lady warned the world at Akita that if we do not turn to God, “Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad.” Akita is not an apparition, rather, Mary shows the continuity of her presence through tears shed by a statue of Our Lady of All Nations. She speaks about the power of the “cohort of victim souls” to Sister Agnes Katsuko Sasagawa: Many men in this world afflict the Lord. I desire souls to console Him, to soften the anger of the Heavenly Father. I wish, with my Son, for souls who will repair by their suffering and their poverty for the sinners and ingrates... I have prevented the coming of calamities by offering Him [The Father] the sufferings of the Son on the Cross, His Precious Blood, and beloved souls who console Him forming a cohort of victim souls. Prayer, penance and courageous sacrifices can soften the Father’s anger. I desire also this from your community… Already souls who wish to pray are on the way to being gathered together.
