Almost All My Priests Are Learned Men
CL-96
18-Jan-96
Jesus

To lay the foundation of My Church, I took fishermen who could understand what a modern peasant can, and no more. Next, I wanted to select from among the learned men who had become wiser than what they were, not with vast studying, but with My doctrine. The beloved Paul was a scholar in the Jewish doctrine, and he became a luminous beacon for the one I had preached.

Through the passing of the centuries, scholars and illiterates followed, until today when almost all My priests are learned; but they do not find My wisdom so pleasing so as to place human wisdom on a second level.

Some, rather, dedicate their lives only to the explanation of a teaching that fails in the light of forever-new conquests. From My doctrine they take enough flour only to plaster their face and hands…

If Francis was so simple that he abhorred all non-ecclesiastical study, My present day followers think of things that are usually human and become confused saying that human science is useful and even more necessary for the priest. But, where have they buried the precious pearl of the priesthood, of My doctrine? Perhaps it is a doctrine that must limit itself to certain exterior things without entering the profoundness of the conscience and human acts.

That is why I am here, to warn you. You give Me your intelligence entirely or you cannot pretend to convert the world with the rivers of human science. You, who have raised human professorships dressed only in human science, be aware of this. Try to remove that obstacle which impedes you from grasping the meaning of My simple yet profound words. Study them! Present the fruits to the deeply disturbed world; the fruits that I know to give to whomever studies My wisdom, and they will have the power to move the rest in search of Me.

So many doctorates on earth, but so many failures in Heaven! Think it over and do not be deceived: he who thirsts, come to Me and drink…
