Sacraments and Sacramentals

Jesus says: (Gesù Our Teacher, Vol. 1)

“Why do people turn more to the blessings than to the Sacraments? […] the reason is quickly explained.

The true faith practiced and lived demands sacrifice and the world is adverse to it. Men live in ignorance of the truths of the faith or they know them only partially.

The study of the truths would make them love the faith, they would enjoy it and they would sanctify themselves and, in practicing it, they would feel themselves free.

Desiring blessings is in itself a good thing: but it becomes for many a superstition.

If you talk to many, people about the Sacraments, about forgiveness of offenses, about practicing charity, they will say to you that they are things too weighty.

They prefer to run from one shrine to the other to receive exorcisms and light candles to all the Saints. They hold that they do not deserve the crosses of which they are burdened and willingly would unload them to put them on the persons whom they hold the cause of their sorrows.

I am indulgent and merciful with everyone and many times I make use even of these superstitious practices, done in good faith, to call back to the way of good.

A sound mind and sound doctrine are based on the search for God, for the faith and for his will; in the study of those teachings which, through Revelation and the Church, were communicated to men and are still being clarified and manifested by means of the Holy Spirit, who again and always will work in the Church and the world.

Making use of the sacramentals after the Sacraments is a good thing; but it must not be forgotten that while the Sacraments work by that power that comes from the Son of God who instituted them, the sacramentals are efficacious on the basis of the sanctity and faith of whoever administers them, drawing from the spiritual treasures of the Church.

The Sacraments are the pure waters that quench and cleanse. The sacramentals are the good greetings that come from a priestly heart and which can be efficacious in the measure that this heart is united and pleasing to God.”

Beware of the ‘New World Order’

Read all... It is the master plan of the Antichrist...
God the FatherGod the Father: “...My Commandments present to you the Truth which is difficult to discover in these times. Do not lend support to anyone who does not live in the Truth. That person will only lead you astray and usurp all your assets to his own advantage. Beware of the ‘New World Order’. It is the master plan of the Antichrist. This is not as it is portrayed – a unity of all people and all nations. It is based upon Communism,* which, as you must realize, was an oppression of the people – even of religious beliefs. Only a few leaders led a good life but they were the ones guilty of oppressing all the others..." (Read more..)

You may not see the effects of your efforts but persevere and do not be discouraged. Use your Rosaries as the mighty weapons that they are. A Rosary said from the heart is more powerful than any weapon of mass destruction. The Rosary is the weapon of these times. Do not let the daily news frighten you. Often, what you hear is not the Truth and only meant to influence your opinions..." (Read more..)

The truth about the Coronavirus

God the FatherGod the Father: "Today, I invite you to realize that this virus - the coronavirus - is no ordinary disease. It has been created from human ingenuity to specifically target the elderly and physically challenged. This is the plan of future generations to purify the human race around the world. It was released into the general population ahead of schedule - by accident. Those in charge were waiting for less capable government officials in your country (USA) to be in office. Nevertheless, proposed harm is being unleashed on the whole human race." (Read more...)
