Dear brothers and sisters in the united Hearts of Jesus and Mary:
On April 4, 1987 Jesus filled with pain, talked to Vassula and said:
“My Body is weary and injured, My Body needs to rest and be soothed”
Are you referring to the Church, Lord?
yes, My Body is the Church; Vassula, I wish to consolidate My Church; I wish to unite all My priests, like an army, an army of salvation; My sheep are scattered, all priests should unite;
My God, I personally am baptised as Greek-Orthodox, whom are you referring to, My Lord, to Catholics or Protestants, or sects? or other religions? If I dare ask You this it’s because it exists.
O Vassula, Vassula, I am One; I God am One; My children are all created by My Hand, why are all My children dispersed? I desire Unity, I want My children to unite; I am One God and they must understand that the Holy Trinity is all in One! the Holy Spirit, the Holy Father and Jesus Christ the Son, all three are in One; Vassula cling to Me, learn from Me;
My God, what about the Light?
I am the Light, I am One; “
The recently beatified Blessed Concepción Armida, a Mexican mystic, wife, widow and founder of the Apostolate of the Cross who consecrated her life for priests, in her conversations with Jesus found in her book, “To My Priests”, prophesied the following more than 90 years ago:
“If the Priest has such a high origin, no less than the loving bosom of the Trinity, he has the unavoidable duty towards unity which is My Will, expressed through his superiors, that is, through the Pope and the Bishops on whom the priest depends.
The priest must always imitate the Father by being a father in His most pure fruitfulness and charity towards souls, with all the qualities of a father and of the Father that is in Heaven, in whose mind the priest was conceived.
The priest must imitate the Son, Myself, the Word made Man, transforming himself into Me, which is more than imitating Me. Being another Me on Earth, only to glorify the Father with each act of his life and to give Him souls for Heaven.
And he must imitate the Holy Spirit by being love, communicating love, spreading and giving witness to the Word through love, and unifying all souls in the Trinity, which is love in all aspects, in all its infinite consequences.
Unity: Solidarity. In judgments, opinions and desires, unifying all, minds and hearts in the Trinity.
This is what I ask today in these secret confidences of My Heart, that they may be put right.
I want to burnish my Church with holy priests, in accordance with the ideal of My Father, and in the most holy and perfect mould of the Trinity. I repeat again, I want a powerful reaction in my Church, for the glory of the Trinity and the salvation of many souls awaiting it.
I am thirsty to be imitated and loved as I have just explained, and I want to present my Father, the delight of my heart, with model Priests, with Bishops transformed in Me. (CC 49, 362-382)”.
Finally, I quote a young mystic called Manuel de Jesús who has also consecrated himself for Priests. In a call to Love and Conversion from the Sacred Heart of Jesus, on June 22, 2016, He says:
“Priesthood is the sacrament of sacrifice and service. Each man that hears my call and answers “FIAT” to my invitation receives My Holy Spirit and, with Him, the authority to act in My Name and serve My people “in Persona Christi”.
The anointed hands of My Priests have been consecrated to make Me present at the Altar and to offer Me to the Eternal Abba for souls. At the altar, the priest ceases to be himself in order to be truly Me, acting and offering Myself in sacrifice to my Father.
This beautiful Sacrament, so loved by Me, is a Sacrament of service and surrender, of cross and oblation, of love and atonement; Priest and Eucharist are a mystical union of each sacerdotal soul because, without a priest, there would be no Eucharist at all and, without the Eucharist, on what would My church be standing? Son, this sacrament is born from My church especially for the Eucharist.
Pray for all priests that they appreciate and value this Ministry–Sacrament that I share with them.”
LET US PRAY
Tender and Merciful Father, Your Son, in His Sacerdotal prayer, before His Passion, asked: “MAY THEY ALL BE ONE AS YOU AND I ARE ONE, SO THAT THE WORLD BELIEVES.” Today, we renew this desire here, in this Ecumenical gathering.
SACRED HEART OF JESUS, MAY YOUR EUCHARISTIC KINGDOM COME, THROUGH THE TRIUMPH OF THE SORROWFUL AND IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY, OUR MOTHER, IN THE DIVINE WILL, AND THE TRIUMPH OF THE CROSS, IN THE HOLY SPIRIT, SPREADING THE FLAME OF HOLY AND DIVINE LOVE IN ALL HEARTS. AMEN. AMEN.
