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 can go through life limping, timid, afraid, tentative, uncertain, blustering, bullying, manipulating or whatever your favorite crutch or prop is.
Or, you can go through life with grace and confidence.
But go through life and confront the highly individualized and personal challenges you must. How you choose to do so is up to you.
Why not make it a beautiful thing? A masterpiece of love.
Lord, help me to be me the way you created me to be. How holy is that?
Tearing Down the Veil of Deception
Time to turn the lights on
In God’s far-reaching vision and perfect grasp of future events, He knows what his faithful and those in danger of losing his friendship will need to survive in each period of history with their souls intact.
The New Evangelization that so many are trying to understand and embrace was definitely God’s idea prepared long in advance for such times as these, and it must come about with increasing spiritual power as well as widespread use of all media. Continue reading
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
Being God at Your Own Expense
The Tab’s on You
It is impossible to walk in the fullness of light without a spirit of humility and self-honesty. Without these, we cannot know the truth about ourselves. And from there, we easily end up in the wrong place. 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.
