Jesus explains the coming of ”a new evangelization” to Catholic mystic Maria Valtorta:
“I shall evangelize, not as I [once] evangelized, but with a new power, for then the good will be not humanly good, as the disciples at my first coming were, but they will be spiritually good, and the wicked will be spiritually wicked, Satanically wicked, perfectly wicked. The form will thus be consonant with the circumstances, for if I were to use the form I used twenty centuries ago, it would be obsolete – for the perfect, in terms of goodness, and it would mean giving the Satanic ones a chance to cause an offense which it is not permitted to cause to the glorified Word.

You have everything you need to fulfill your purpose.
Thank God and Don’t Waste another Moment
If we could understand one fact, if we could but broaden our perspective, think bigger and let love have its way with us, we could eliminate so many unnecessary disturbances among ourselves. And not only that, but we could also help each other realize our better selves with greater peace and joy. Continue reading
Time to get real
No more cookie-cutter solutions
We all have felt that aching of the spirit, that deep-down hunger and seemingly unquenchable thirst for something we couldn’t identify. We’ve all felt that loss of direction, purpose or meaning in life – even when, and perhaps, especially when – we’re doing the things we wanted to do most.
We come to the point where, like the sages of the Old Testament, we say: “In vain does man labor. All is vanity.” And it seems as if all our efforts – life itself – is so futile. What is it that’s happening here?
Don’t make your religion, your faith – your life – about you. It is a gratuitous gift from God. Don’t make your walk with the Lord about your spiritual abilities. And, for that matter, don’t make it about your miserable failings by indulging in endless self-pity. He chose you, not the other way around. And He will finish what he started, provided you don’t let pride get in the way. Continue reading
A second and final evangelization is being guided by Heaven
to meet the new times.
What’s really behind the New Evangelization
In 1950, Jesus gave the following dictation to Catholic mystic Maria Valtorta:
Since for twenty centuries there has been everything necessary for man to possess the Eternal Kingdom and reach the end for which he was created, there will not be a second redemption by the God‑Man. The man who loses Grace through weakness has the means to recover it and be redeemed. As he falls on his own, so on his own he can be redeemed by using the perpetual gifts which Christ instituted for all men who wish to draw from them.
And the Word of the Father will not come for a second Evangelization. He will not come personally. And yet He will evangelize. Continue reading
One of the most troublesome things I observe in myself and others is the inability to to come to terms with our personal – and especially moral - weaknesses.
Generally, we know the human condition is one characterized by disorder, division, imbalance. We see the effects of evil all around us. We don’t have any trouble admitting that.
But when it comes to sizing up our own personal condition, all kinds of craziness and problems ensue. Everything from denial, to anger, to blaming others, to unhealthy guilt. Continue reading
The soul wants one thing, the ego another. The soul requires essential things for its sustenance. The ego desires this and that to satisfy its appetites. There is a constant battle within us where spiritual nutrition for the soul is pitted against empty but comforting junk food that feeds nothing but the ego.
Jesus speaks about the conclusion of His third year of public life and how His works and teachings have aroused different reactions in different people. He raises the question whether we today, having at our disposal a fuller understanding of His life as presented in the Poem of the Man-God will reject Him because of what these pages stir up within us. Continue reading
Is it possible to know whether you are saved or not? Does salvation consist in a single act or profession of belief? Read the story of the rich young man and see what Jesus has to say about him, as well as others asking the same question. And finally, see what Jesus says about one tremendous sinner who shows through his generosity that he thoroughly gets it – and who knows the essential thing it takes to be saved.
