We can never underestimate the power and importance of the Eucharist. Recent events have managed to hijack this belief – streamed Masses, some churches closed, limits to attendance in churches, (when other activities are not stopped), Holy Communion being forbidden on the tongue (contrary to advice that it is ‘safer’, …

Cardinal Sarah, in  recent article has spoken about this. (see below)

Cardinal Sarah: ‘We Must Return to the Eucharist’

VATICAN CITY — In a letter to the leaders of the world’s episcopal conferences, the head of the Vatican’s office for worship and sacraments said that Catholic communities should return to Mass as soon as it can be done safely, and that the Christian life cannot be sustained without the Sacrifice of the Mass and the Christian community of the Church.

The letter, sent to bishops this week, said that, while the Church should cooperate with civic authorities and be attentive to safety protocols amid the coronavirus pandemic, “liturgical norms are not matters on which civil authorities can legislate, but only the competent ecclesiastical authorities.” It also emphasized that bishops can make provisional changes to liturgical rubrics in order to accommodate public health concerns, and urged obedience to those temporary changes.   …

As soon as circumstances permit, however, it is necessary and urgent to return to the normality of Christian life, which has the church building as its home and the celebration of the liturgy, especially the Eucharist, as ‘the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; and at the same time it is the font from which all her power flows’ (Sacrosanctum Concilium, 10).”

Cardinal Sarah noted that “as soon as is possible... we must return to the Eucharist with a purified heart, with a renewed amazement, with an increased desire to meet the Lord, to be with Him, to receive Him and to bring Him to our brothers and sisters with the witness of a life full of faith, love and hope.”

“We cannot be without the banquet of the Eucharist, the table of the Lord to which we are invited as sons and daughters, brothers and sisters to receive the Risen Christ himself, present in body, blood, soul and divinity in that Bread of Heaven which sustains us in the joys and labours of this earthly pilgrimage.”

We “cannot be without the Christian community,” Cardinal Sarah added, “cannot be without the house of the Lord,” “cannot be without the Lord’s Day.”

We cannot live as Christians without participating in the Sacrifice of the Cross in the which the Lord Jesus gave himself unreservedly to save, by his death, humanity which had died because of sin…in the embrace of the Crucified One all human suffering finds light and comfort.”

The cardinal explained that while streamed or televised Masses “have performed a great service…at a time when there was no possibility of community celebration, no broadcast is comparable to personal communication or can replace it. On the contrary, these broadcasts alone risk distancing us from a personal and intimate encounter with the incarnate God who gave himself to us not in a virtual way,” but in the Eucharist.

“Once the concrete measures that can be taken to reduce the spread of the virus to a minimum have been identified and adopted, it is necessary that all resume their place in the assembly of brothers and sisters…and encourage again those brothers and sisters who have been discouraged, frightened, absent, or uninvolved for too long.”

The cardinal said that bishops should give “due attention” to “hygiene and safety regulations” while avoiding the “sterilisation of gestures and rites” or “instilling, even unconsciously, fear and insecurity in the faithful.”

He added that bishops should be certain that civil authorities not subordinate the Mass to a place of priority below “recreational activities” or regard the Mass as only a “gathering” comparable to other public activities, and reminded bishops that civic authorities cannot regulate liturgical norms. 

Cardinal Sarah said that pastors should “insist on the necessity of adoration, work to ensure the dignity of the liturgy and its setting, and ensure that “the faithful should be recognized as having the right to receive the Body of Christ and to worship the Lord present in the Eucharist,” without “limitations that go even beyond what is provided for by the norms of hygiene issued by public authorities.”      …

The Power of the Eucharist  

Messages from Book of Truth:

Virgin Mary: The favours granted when you receive the Body of my Son

19 October 2012 @ 9:06am

(Received during an apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which lasted 20 minutes, during which an image of the Holy Eucharist appeared on her forehead)

My child, the Host, which you see on my forehead, is a symbol, to prove to all of God’s children, the Real Presence of my Son in the Holy Eucharist.

My Son is present in the world and stands beside each of God’s children every day in the hope that they will feel His Presence.

Children, it is only through receiving the Real Body of My Son, Jesus Christ, the Redeemer of mankind, that you will be blessed with special graces.

When my Son died for your sins, so that every child of God would be able to defy death, He left behind an important legacy.

The Presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist is Real and when consumed, brings you special protection. It brings you closer in union with Him.

He is the Bread of Life. This Gift to you, children, must never be questioned or rejected.

The favours granted to those who receive His Body and Blood include salvation from Purgatory, if received every day.

My Son will take you, at the time of death, into His Arms away from the fires of Purgatory.

The Holy Mass, which offers the Real Body of my Son, in honour of my Father, brings with it, also, great benefits.

The more daily Masses you attend and the more you receive the Body and Blood of my Son, in the Holy Eucharist, you will be granted immunity from the purification in the fires of Purgatory.

Those of you who dismiss the Existence of my Son, in the Holy Eucharist, deny yourselves a great Gift. You will not be condemned for refusing His Body in the Holy Mass, but you will not receive the graces, which He wishes to bestow on all of God’s children.

The Holy Communion you receive must be Consecrated properly. When you receive His Body, He will fill you with a deep and humble love, which will strengthen your faith and bring you Eternal Life.

The Holy Eucharist is the Gift, which will grant you Eternal Life. Never forget this.

My Son suffered greatly to give the world this great Gift, the passport to Heaven. Do not reject it. Do not challenge His generosity. Do not underestimate the Power of the Holy Host.

Please recite this Crusade Prayer (81) for the Gift of the Holy Communion

O Heavenly Host, fill my body with the nourishment it needs.
Fill my soul with the Divine Presence of Jesus Christ.
Give me the graces to fulfil the Holy Will of God.
Fill me with the peace and calm, which comes from Your Holy Presence.
Never let me doubt Your Presence.
Help me to accept You in Body and Soul, and that, by the Holy Eucharist, the Graces bestowed upon me, will help me to proclaim the Glory of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Purify my heart.
Open my soul and sanctify me when I receive the great Gift of the Holy Eucharist.
Grant me the graces and the favours it bestows upon all God’s children, and grant me immunity from the fires of Purgatory. Amen.

My children, you must pray that all Christians will accept and understand the Power of the Holy Eucharist. It is the armour required to salvage the souls of all my children.

Accept it with good grace and generosity of heart.

Your Blessed Mother
Mother of Salvation

 

The following message, indicating the changes to come, all reflect of the importance of the Holy Eucharist.

A new form of the Cross will be introduced

30 April 2013 @ 3:40pm

My dearly beloved daughter, My Authority will never diminish, and like a light, will fade amidst the thick fog, but it will always be visible, even though it may be reduced to but just a faint glimmer.

When the world changes again, as the spirit of evil creates division upon division, it will only be the Light of God which will sustain you. My Presence will be felt by those who come to Me for help, for I will never desert you, especially when you feel that all is hopeless. Nothing but the Truth will help you to cope, when the lack of charity which is evident in the world today increases, as men’s hearts turn to stone.

The Truth is contained in the Holy Bible. It is the food by which man can live now and in the future.Very soon it will become impossible to buy a Bible, as many nations will adhere to the new laws, especially in Europe, which will ban all books which promote the Word of God.

The letter is being written now to beckon all those in the service of the Catholic Church.Soon, all of My sacred servants will be informed of the changes, which they will be told are for the good of the Church.

The new rules, which will see amendments made to prayers during the Holy Mass, will seem innocent. To many, they won’t notice the significance, but it will relate to the Holy Eucharist and My Presence within It. The word ‘commemorate’ will be used and all churches will soon be stripped bare of their treasures. The taking of treasures, including gold Tabernacles – which will be replaced by those made of wood and stone – will be one of the signs that they are being gathered for the New World Religion.

Churches will be changed within their walls and this will involve the desecration of altars. The Monstrance,  holding the Holy Eucharist, will begin to disappear and the days when My Holy Host is exposed will come to an end.

Cast scorn upon My Word now, and you will weep tears when these acts are brought before you. Soon, not long afterwards, the garments worn by My sacred servants, will be altered and a new form of the Cross will be introduced. The new atrocity will not be based on the simple cross. Instead it will feature, discreetly, the head of the beast.

I ask you to gather My holy Crosses now and keep them in your homes, along with Holy Water. I urge all of you to hold onto the Truth of what I have told you. Then I want you to trust in Me completely. Never believe that I Am leaving you at the mercy of the evil one. I will remain close to you at all times. I will pour special blessings on the heads of My beloved, loyal sacred servants to keep them entwined with My Sacred Heart.

Keep your hearts close to Me and to each other. Comfort and strengthen each other, for you must love each other, more than ever, before and during the times ahead. I Am your family.  You are Mine. We will remain united, until the time when the trumpets peal out and the announcement is made that I Am to reveal Myself, finally, in My Second Coming. Then you will feel the joy and peace which I have promised you. Then all suffering will end.

Your Jesus

Readings from the Book of Truth

I Am Present in the Eucharist despite the misinterpretation of My Promise

14 April 2011 @ 12:05am

My dearly beloved daughter, do not worry. You are improving in the way you are setting time aside in prayer to Me. Now it is important that man understands that in order to come closer to My Heart, he must understand the need to receive the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist.

Many people, including other Christian groups, deny My Real Presence in the Eucharist. Why they have decided to deny the promises I made at My Last Supper, where I promised I would give My Flesh and Blood as Food and Nourishment for your souls, is unclear.

What is clear is that the Miracle of the Holy Eucharist, Present in all Tabernacles all over the world, Exists today, and is there to fill your poor, undernourished and empty souls with My Presence. This Presence will strengthen you in ways, that, were you to miss receiving Me once you get used to this, you will feel lost.

Many Christians ignore one of the most fundamental promises I made during My Crucifixion, where I would be Present in Bread and Wine and leave a permanent mark to help nourish souls. Too much human reasoning has meant that I have been rejected by even well meaning Christians. These same Christians cannot receive the Holy Eucharist in its True Form. The Most Holy Eucharist was given to you all as a great Gift for your redemption and salvation. By rejecting the fact that I Am Present, means that you are forfeiting special graces, which are part of a pact to bring Me even closer into your hearts. Remember, when I died for you, it was to lead you to towards eternal life and salvation.

Receive Me as the Living Presence and your souls will alight in ways you would not have believed possible. Turn back to receiving My Body and Blood. Let Me remove your doubts. This is one of the biggest mistakes Christians have made, by denying Me entry to their souls in this way. It greatly offends My Eternal Father because of the Sacrifice involved to save your souls. Let Me bring Light and nourishment into your lives. You will be more inclined to accept the Truth of My Teaching after The Warning takes place.

Remember what I promised during My Last Supper that when you take the bread and wine it will become for you My Body and My Blood.* Any other interpretation has been distorted by human logic and reasoning. Now understand and accept the Truth.

Your loving Saviour, Jesus Christ

*For clarification on the Doctrine of Transubstantiation please refer to the Message given on Friday, June 1, 2012 @ 8:15 pm
“When the antichrist devours all religions the only weapons which he will be powerless against is the Holy Mass and the Transubstantiation of the bread and wine into My Body and Blood, in the Holy Eucharist.”

With Wisdom comes the ability to see the Truth

21 January 2015 @ 8:24pm

My dearly beloved daughter, Wisdom is a gift given to man by the power of the Holy Spirit.  For all the riches, powers and precious stones gleaned on earth, which man may gain, he has nothing if he does not possess the Gift of Wisdom.

With Wisdom comes the ability to see the Truth, which was given by God to the human race through the prophets. Wisdom, unfortunately, is a rare thing in the world today. By succumbing to all things created by man for man, you will fail to see all that is hidden beneath the layers of seductive soothing vapours that cover the world because of man’s pursuit of every pleasure, every act, every word and spiritual stimulation which does not come from God.

Man is born into the world naked, vulnerable and reliant on others to feed and clothe him. He is born with a body and soul and he will leave the world with nothing, including the garments that clothe him. Man learns from man but he must also learn from the Word of God.Any extra knowledge can be a great bonus, but if used unwisely can cause terrible pain to others. If knowledge is used wisely it can fulfil God’s plan to help and nurture his children.

The human race is being deceived about the Truth. This great deceit sucks the knowledge and the human spirit dry. Sin is no longer merely accepted but is considered a virtue. Virtue is now frowned upon and soon the mere mention of My Name in public will be deemed to be a crime.

The devil’s influence twists the human mind and turns everything back to front. The devil is the antithesis of God and so, if God says that something is right then he, the evil one, will convince you that it is wrong. Right will be deemed to be wrong and an evil deed or word will be declared to be right. All sin, deplorable in the eyes of God, will be justified and this will include every form of evil.

Sin will never be mentioned in the new world church to come and acts carried out by those who desire to uphold the Word of God will become illegal. And so Wisdom, a gift from God, will be lacking in your society as the human race embraces acts that are condemned by God.

If the world tells you that the Word of God should be ignored, and insists that you participate in acts which amount to mortal sin, then I cannot save you. Man is being urged to applaud every cunning law that denies the Word of God and My enemies are extremely active in altering the course of history.

All good things, which stem from the Christian faith, will soon disappear, until the day comes when you will be persecuted for receiving the Holy Sacraments. But for every wicked act carried out by those who despise Me, God will pour His Spirit over His Own to counteract this evil. Were He not to do this, there would be little hope in salvaging His children from the grip of darkness. Satan has manifested his influence in every corner of the world. Those he seduces are his willing agents and delight when they overcome all opposition from God’s people, so as to bring the world to its knees. But God, because of His love for you, will ensure that Wisdom, granted to man through the power of the Holy Spirit, becomes the armour which His loyal servants will use to steer people away from the smoke of satan.

The Light of God will shine brightly amongst His people and under His protection they will uphold His Word and lead others into the Spirit of Wisdom.Souls who truly know Me will be drawn to God’s gift of Wisdom, for she will shine like the sun and bring comfort to all God’s people, who will be despised when they openly profess their love for God.

Evil will not, nor can it, overcome the gift of Wisdom, which God will soon bequeath to all those who love Him. Then nothing shall stand in God’s way as He strides ahead to garner every nation into His loving and safe Arms.

All religions, all souls, all nations will be given the gift of Wisdom. But, it can only be received by those who truly love God, for only through their love for Him will they be able to pray for those who want nothing to do with Him.

Your Jesus

Comment:  Today’s readings focussed on Wisdom! They were very powerful and enlightening and gives us Hope – right now, when  the world seems to be darkening.

Thank you Lord, for today’s readings and for Your Love!!

After our prayer Meeting, we finished with the Regina Coeli (instead of the Angelus) a hymn to Our Lady,  ( we chose one  which expresses our love for our dearest Mother – a gift for Mother’s Day) , food and fellowship.

Live Jesus in our hearts   – Forever!!

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire

A+M+D+G+

Where there’s smoke…

The article mentions that the Bishop of Rome has given directions for a change of “Eucharistic Liturgy”.

This article states:

 “My confidential source of Santa Marta, referring heard some discussion – between lunch and the other – he told me that in fact the change of the Mass, wanted by Bergoglio, has PURPOSE ONLY: IS ECUMENICAL. I.E. “CREATE” A MASS THAT IS NOT IN OPPOSITION TO THE PROTESTANTS AND THEN A LITURGY THAT WE CAN CELEBRATE “IN COMMUNION”.

And ‘This is the truth. And this is his intention. A perennial liturgy that is ecumenical, however. Obviously I predict that Bergoglio to do this will also change the text of the “Consecration”. Which would make the Mass invalid. And I predict that even those who will refuse to celebrate with this “new rite” will be considered out of the Church. They are coming up these days. And facciamocene a reason. THE BISHOP OF ROME WANTS TO BECOME “EL PRESIDENTE” OF THE VARIOUS DENOMINATIONS; and to do that Jesus Christ is selling at a price much lower than Judas.

As for me, since I am a priest, I will refuse to celebrate this type of liturgy. And I tell you that you will return to being Christians “catacombs.”

THE INTENT OF BERGOGLIO, then get to this. CHANGE TO “UNITE.”     …

My Santamartese “source tells me that it is almost done.
Only a matter of time.
Mala tempora currunt.

I suggest to all readers to pray the Madonna with many Rosaries. Not to dismiss these times. Because here we are. But because they help you to keep the faith. And to be persevering in time of persecution. That will come soon.”

  • Shortly afterwards, Fra Cristoforo disappeared from the blogosphere. People wondered whether it was all a deception or perhaps was he too close to the truth and he was found out??

More ‘smoke’?

  • Then, on 20th June, another article was published by John Supplers  of Veritas Vincit entitled: Vatican reportedly working on “Ecumenical Rite of Mass” for joint worship with Protestants”

 “…Italian journalist and Vatican expert Marco Tosatti has reported that Pope Francis has formed a top-secret commission tasked with implementing a new kind of “mass” that is acceptable to Catholics, Lutherans and Anglicans.

The commission consists of representatives from all three denominations, all bound to secrecy.

The journalist, who is well known in Italy for his accurate reporting of all things happening in the Vatican, has said that while this news is merely a “rumor” at this point, his “sources are usually good.”

… According to Tosatti, the central issue lies in the Eucharist, since the  …. Catholics believe in Transubstantiation and the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, while Protestants believe that it is merely a memorial.

Tosatti reports that a possible “solution” being proposed is that the words of Consecration be replaced by silence:…”

 Unexpected Confirmation:

  • Donna had just finished reading this article and opened up the Bible at random (as she does each night). The next day – on 22/06/2017 7:20 AM-  Donna wrote: “This is so relevant. I had just finished reading about the changes to the Mass (the aforementioned article published on 20th June). Last night’s random reading that I opened on was… (B of T: Sept 13, 2011) “Changes to be introduced in the church which will contradict the Word of God.”   It’s Confirmation.”
  • More Confirmation: (Tt Crusader answered her)
    ”Hi Donna,

    I was just reading this message yesty (yesterday), same topic as yours, about the changes coming to the Mass.” (B of T: 25th July, 2013)

“…My Son’s Church is being stolen and soon His Body will no longer be present therein…

 …Soon the antichrist will appear and his rise to fame will start in Jerusalem. Once he appears in public, everything in my Son’s Church will change, quickly. The new rules will be introduced.

Many cardinals, bishops, priests, nuns and ordinary people will be excommunicated, if they do not follow the new rules or adore the false prophet”

Also Tt added later:

  • “Thunder and lightning will descend upon the Temple of the Lord

January 3, 2015 @ 8:20pm

“…  Because the Truth has been twisted and the Word of God ignored, people will continue to turn their backs on the Holy Word of God. Their descent into darkness will result in a punishment by God, the Most High.

It pains My Eternal Father to see the depths to which man has fallen in the pursuit of anything that brings him pleasure. But, the day when the Holy Sacrifice ends, and the hour that the imposters desecrate My Altar, will be the final thorn by which they will pierce My Side.

At the appointed time, thunder and lightning will descend upon the Temple of the Lord and it will come crashing down. Woe to the man who participates in this sacrilege for he will be cut off from every reprieve and he will fall into the abyss like a stone. No one will defend the man who desecrates My Altar then, for once the Hand of God descends like a heavy axe, they will realise the Truth.

…   The Truth must be upheld for if you accept anything but the Truth – the Word of God – you will end up with nothing.

Your Jesus”

  • Donna’s reading on the night following (22nd June):

“There is only one Truth. One Light. Anything else is a lie”.     1 January 2012 @ 5:30pm

“…When you try to analyse My Word, you will find you are unable to do this successfully. No amount of analysis can change the Truth of what I say.

No one, … has the authority to twist the meaning of My Holy Word, so that it becomes more acceptable in your eyes. This applies to My Word contained in the Holy Bible and My Word contained within the  Messages.

The Truth must be told. My Holy Word must never be diluted, or the Truth tampered with.

My Holy Word must never be changed, adjusted or twisted, so that it becomes a lie.

…  They have twisted my Teachings for centuries to suit their avarice, lust, pride and greed.

… But beware. Those Christians who believe that the twisted truth of My Teachings will be acceptable in My Eyes will be shocked during The Warning. …  I urge these people to accept that I Am the Truth and the Light. There is only One Truth, One Light. Anything else is a lie.

Your Teacher and Redeemer
Saviour of all Mankind, Jesus Christ”

Donna’s comment to Tt: You know I told a priest once and gave him the message years ago about changes to the Mass. He told me it wouldn’t happen- they couldn’t, he said! I wonder what he will think when he’s eventually told that they are! I hope he remembers the message I gave him.

 

Is it only smoke, or is there fire?

Key Questions:  Why is the Commission “a secret commission”?

Why are Lutherans and Anglicans involved in changing the Mass?

 

There will, no doubt,  be a new explanation for the Eucharist, which will be couched in humanism.

It will obviously be promoted as a symbol of unity, of welcoming all, of bonding together. Words from the Bible will once again be used very cleverly in order to deceive.

Much damage has already been done to the Sacrament of the Eucharist by Amoris Laetitia. It too, was already planned way before the Synods took place. It was a foregone conclusion.

Get rid of the Real Presence and we have the “Abomination of Desolation” foretold in Old Testament. It is necessary for the New One World Religion. We might not see the results straight away – the world stage has to be set and ready.

We, the Remnant Army,  must be ready.  Jesus is depending on us. We have to warn our fellow Catholics who have no idea of what is happening and will just go along with the changes.

Fore-warned is fore-armed!
