Katya Rivas: Live in Unison the Holy Sacrifice


The Medallion of the Apostolate of the New Evangelization

The Great Crusade Of Love

Extract #128

Live in Unison the Holy Sacrifice of the Altar

CL-128
22-Jan-96
Paul

Take your small notebook.

Christ ascended into Heaven and comes back to earth in a different aspect. Having risen in Glory, He returns dressed as a victim at the hands of His priests.

It cannot be that being in Heaven, He assumes the vestments of a sacrificed victim, humiliated, and not glorious at all. Nevertheless, He assumes the vestments of victim in the bloodless Sacrifice of the Mass. Not symbolically, but the Victim is veritably sacrificed and the value the Mass has is the same as that of Calvary, or of Gethsemane, because the Victim is the same, present but invisible to you, except for some chosen souls.

If men would obtain from the Mass that which corresponds to such a great sacrifice, it would be enough for their salvation and complete redemption. Indeed, they obtain very little because when in attendance they are distracted or very absorbed in thoughts that, if they are saints at any other given moment, they are out of place at the Holy Mass.

In the meantime, what happens? The celebrating priest and the faithful are not in unison during the Holy Sacrifice at the altar and for that reason one is distanced from the others, and the latter rarely or loosely joins him. Good game for Satan, who busies himself in all he can to deflect the benefits of such a great sacrifice, to the detriment of men. Yet, if one understood the real significance of the Mass that brings Christ humiliated and sacrificed to earth, there would not be so many faults in the world and Christians would be wise in strength and understanding. The means exist but whoever does not utilize them removes from himself the effects that are tied to that divine cause. Too much indifference, too many pious distractions, and too many considerations out of place surround the Victim who is sacrificed!

Great are the means, but evidently the affections are paltry. One does not know the passionate cry, the afflicted complaint from Jesus: "…I searched and did not find." Even today Jesus repeats to you His reproach that has not been understood: "Could you not, then, watch one hour with Me?"

Many of you are in a hurry, many attend Mass to be in right with your conscience, in the sense that in disobeying the Church, you would commit a grave sin. And, Christ? Who thinks about Him? Who sees that He is sacrificed and crushed under the appearance of bread and wine? Who notices Him desirous of gathering onto Himself all the wills in order to make one single love?

How sad to see these things and to partake of the thoughtlessness of almost all Christians, including some celebrants!

Nevertheless, brethren, it can be remedied. The ardor of the Church by its Founder is not exhausted and will never be. It has all the means at its disposal and will renew its children who live as children of the dark in the midst of the era. But you Christians stir yourselves because Christ cannot consider His those that sleep. Try to change; try to rise up to the name that is the greatest title of honor.

I say this to him whom I untied from Satan’s chains with prayers to Christ that carried Me to the third Heaven in order to caution you and all of good will.

I, Paul, testify and confirm that God’s Grace acts in you for the Glory of He whose Name in Heaven, on earth, and in hell manifests His Divine virtue with power.

Pray faithfully, pray in unison, especially in the Mass. May Love and your peace bear witness that Christ lives in you. Comfort the lowly; be completely consoled and remain prisoners of the great Self-sacrificed, of whom you are unremovable property.

Paul of Jesus, Apostle of all people, blesses you all with all his heart.
