Bringing Christ to the World Through THE MASS
“So, you saw Him, too?” A true story God’s Amazing Grace. During the Consecration at an outdoor Mass, a seminarian looked up at the priest. To his utter astonishment, he no longer saw the priest anymore, but rather Jesus standing in his place. He could hear the priest’s voice, but he saw Christ.
The experience was so profound he pondered it for two weeks. Finally, he had to speak about beholding the Lord Jesus at The Mass. He went to the rector’s house and knocked on the door. When the rector answered, he took one look at the seminarian and said, “So, you saw Him too?”
“How shall I make a return to the Lord for all the good he has done for me? The cup of salvation I will take up, and I will call upon the name of the Lord. My vows to the Lord I will pay in the presence of all his people. Precious in the eyes of the Lord is the death of his faithful ones. O Lord I am your servant, the son of your handmaid; you have loosed my bonds. To you will I offer sacrifice of thanksgiving, and I will call upon the name of the Lord. My vows to the Lord I will pay in the presence of all his people. In the courts of the house of the Lord, in your midst, O Jerusalem.” (Psalm 116: 12-19) The Holy Mass is everything! Discover, embrace Thy Lord and Master!
“Love Jesus!” Jesus is a person, always alive and present with us” Love Jesus present in the Eucharist!” -Pope John Paul II Jesus, the Lamb of God, reigns: from the Tabernacle; on the Altar at Mass with His Father, and the Holy Spirit. He blesses you during Benediction and the crowd at the Eucharistic Procession. The Risen Lord is the Kingdom of God! He is the fulfillment of your soul’s deepest desire! Almighty God lives within you bearing Divine Light, Holy Love, and Eternal Truth!
“Blessed are you in the temple of your holy glory, praiseworthy and glorious above all forever.” (Daniel 3:53) Blessed are repentant souls who truly recognize -- and return Jesus’ loving gaze -- living Christ’s life of love!
“There is only one reality that shapes the universe. It occurred on Holy Thursday eve when Christ gave bread as His body and wine as His blood to the Apostles to eat and to drink in remembrance of His sacrificing all He was on Good Friday the very next day.
This ultimate gift of His Body and His Blood received in the Eucharist at Holy Mass is the final source of life and grace for all mankind. Without receiving Communion under both species Christians will not achieve their ultimate life in Christ.” –Jesus, Private Revelation through a Lay Franciscan
"They devoted themselves to the teachings of the apostles and to the communal life, to the breaking of the bread and to the prayers. Awe came upon everyone, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. All who believed were together and had all things in common; they would sell their property and possessions and divide them among all according to each one's need.
Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple area and to breaking bread in their homes. They ate their meals with exultation and sincerity of heart, praising God and enjoying favor with all the people. And every day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved.” (Acts 2:42-47) The early Church realized that every Mass, every prayer, every act of charity, every sacrifice was vital in their spiritual battle against evil.
Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, who is, and who is to come.
To the One who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor, glory and might, forever and ever. Amen.
Bringing Christ to the World Through THE MASS is a divinely inspired document of praise and worship that seeks the Real Presence of Jesus.
Jesus in the Holy Eucharist is God's gift available to all! Jesus is the wellspring of salvation; coming to us each time we as Church gather to celebrate Holy Mass. The flock redeemed by the blood of Christ flowing from His holy wounds forever fresh.
Go to the Eternal Banquet -- knowing you are in Almighty God’s Divine Presence -- greeted by Jesus at the feasting Table with His twelve Apostles.
Our eyes are fixed on Jesus as He gives us His Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity. He is the Eternal Vine providing the fruit of His Passion, daily sustenance for the journey.
Look beyond the life-giving bread you eat see your Savior and Lord. Look beyond the saving cup you drink see His love for you as His blood outpoured.
Jesus is right there as I receive Him in Holy Communion. He places the Holy Eucharist upon my outstretched tongue through the priest's consecrated hands. I effectively communicate with the flesh of our Lord.
When I drink His redeeming blood, the living waters flowing from the Sanctuary, cleanse my soul, fulfilling God’s promise of Eternal Life. I have conquered the devil through the communication with the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. Whoever drinks of it shall not die.
"Let us fix our eyes on Christ's blood and understand how precious it is to His Father, poured out for our salvation it has brought to the whole world the grace of repentance" -St. Clement of Rome.
"The soul that receives the divine blood becomes beautiful, as being clothed in a more precious garment, and it appears so beautifully aglow that if you could see it you would be tempted to adore it" -St. Mary Magdalene de Pazzi.
“If we wish to adore the Real Face of Jesus . . . we can find it in the divine Eucharist where, with the body and blood of Jesus Christ, the face of our Lord is hidden under the white veil of the Host" -St. Gaetano Catanoso, Founder of the Veronican Sisters of the Holy Face
“The waters of the river gladden the city of God, the holy dwelling of the Most High. God is in its midst; it shall not be disturbed; God will help it at the break of dawn. Though nations are in turmoil, kingdoms totter, his voice resounds, the earth melts away, The Lord of hosts is with us; our stronghold is the God of Jacob. Come! Behold the deeds of the Lord, the astounding things he has wrought on earth.” (Psalm 46:5-9) Morning breaks into the first Morning through daily Holy Communion with Divine Love!
“It is important to understand that God dwells in His holy temple. He dwells in man through the indwelling of His Son -- Jesus Christ -- in people. It is written, 'from out of their belly shall flow rivers of living water unto life everlasting'.
The journey in holiness recognizes that Apostles dwell in the presence of God each day. That presence manifests itself through the action of the Holy Spirit which makes each man God's dwelling place.
Being the temple of the Holy Spirit on earth allows the Father to flow as living water through each reception of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist. Where, bread and wine become the body and blood of the Crucified Savior.
As Pilate washed his hands symbolic in the priest's washing of his; the Father chooses not to abandon as Pilate did, but to accompany, enlighten, and lead His people through the washing of the Word, Amen, Amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink My blood, you shall not have life within you.
Each obedient, devout reception of Holy Communion brings the Father's Presence to the Altar through the consecrated hands of the priest, to the Eucharistic minister, and to those receiving the life-giving host. This bread and the wine administered together make the Banquet of the Heavenly Father complete. And the river of life flows on symbolically within the being of each Apostle who in turn becomes a temple dwelling place for God the Creator and Father of all mankind.
Two temples prevail: one in the Kingdom of God within each Apostle on earth connecting through supernatural grace to the Kingdom of God in Heaven. The majestic steps of the Father can be seen as it is written, 'in the footsteps of every just man that are ordered through the orchestration of the Holy Spirit. Man makes a melody to His God -- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit -- through every anointed action of his daily life'.
Only the devil can derail or silence the blessed footstep or the symphony which must be one of love, hope, faith, patience, meekness gentleness, longsuffering, and self control. Against these there is no law. The devil will try to use any means he can to disrupt the work and flow of the Holy Spirit once He takes up residency in an Apostle.
The anger of God against satan is so great that He will destroy him and one day seal him and his demon angels in the lake of fire never to tempt mankind again. God will not allow His people to be tempted beyond what their human will can handle. And as gold tested in a fire, each man, woman, and child must work out their own salvation.
The secret is staying in the presence of Almighty God through the inspiration of the Spirit who is brought forth for every soul through the reception of Holy Communion. This is why it is so important not to receive if one has committed a grievous offense against God.
But the beauty of getting Jesus in the bread and wine is that the tiny imperfections are washed away in the outpouring of the living water through the washing of the Word, the Word who became flesh and dwelt amongst us, who without Him -- JESUS -- nothing came into being.
The Father's gift to man is the Son. Man's gift to the Father, happens everyday on the hour throughout the world as the holy priesthood gives back to the Father the sacrificial Lamb whose blood cleanses all mankind. In His blood there is no failure -- only triumph and victory." -The very words of Jesus spoken through a Lay Franciscan.
Daily Apostles rejoice in Jesus for whom all hearts are restless. Thousands of remnant faithful celebrate Daily Mass with the Most Holy Trinity! We are being built through Christ’s perfect Sacrifice of the Cross: a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation called to serve and worship God in Jesus. A people He claims for His own.
Trinity Apostles are consecrated to the Flesh and Blood of the Living God. Bringing Christ to the World, as we walk with our Lord each day; first offering the Father our pure, living, spiritual sacrifice.
"The Mass is the pinnacle, the high tower where the righteous may run into and be safe. Where its beacon of the light of the Gospel gives off shining rays as from a great prism of grace that overflows each time the Mass is sacrificed for the Father of Lights from whom all gifts come down from above. Great graces fill the souls of those who receive the Body and Blood of Jesus with conviction, truth, and dedication to fulfilling one's service in the Body of Christ." -Words from Jesus spoken through a Third Order Franciscan
At the Divine Liturgy we encounter, receive the pearl of great price, the Living Christ. "Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood abide in me, and I in them." (John 6:56) Believing the Scripture and the word Jesus had spoken we enjoy daily communal relationship with God. All praise and glory be to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!
"As envisioned, Trinity Apostles have three distinct callings. The first is through the Father who brings them to a full understanding what He has created in them and through them: their talents and their families, but as no man cometh unto the Father but by Jesus the Son of God through His perfect humanity identifies with each believer through Christ's perfect knowledge each individual shares in His love.
This love becomes love and teaches the passionate heart of each Apostle how to serve since the love of God is shed abroad in every human heart through the Soul of Christ: the Holy Spirit whose inner groanings for all men become heard through the inner ear of each Apostle whose ultimate goal is to fulfill the work of the Father just as I, Jesus did.
My beloved brethren, I call you one more time to come and Follow Me. Let My voice that I promised My sheep would hear lead you in your daily duty. You must love everyone, your spouse, your child, your friend, your enemy. There is only one common denominator: love. With love as your purpose you can achieve each multitudinous task of your daily life.
When you walk with Me and I hold you in the palm of My hand nothing can snatch you from Me. The Father, the Son, and the Spirit are One. I, Jesus am in you, you are in me and through my Holy Spirit THROUGH MY HOLY SPIRIT I prayed to keep you in the world, but not of it. You are My light hidden under modern bushels. The trappings of the world cannot put out your light.
You are the light that shines in the darkness of humanism, secularism, progressivism. Even the most dimly lit among you makes a difference in the raging battle for souls that My Mother, like a weary bag lady wages every day, every hour, every minute, at the center of the Universe where souls go up or down or in between -- according to their deeds. She is a scavenger for any thread of reparation to turn the word of judgment away from a failing soul.
You must pray, sacrifice your time, your efforts, money, and belongings, as unselfish sacrifices for souls who have no one to pray for them. That does not mean that I will rob you of your individuality. Light is too precious for that. You are My light. I was the Light of the World. Now My light is in you. Don't turn Me off -- I beg of you. Come to Me in any way that you can. I am not a dictator. I am the lover of your soul.
For you who are married I live in your intimacy that gives off much grace. For you who are single I am your spouse. Be it husband or the wife of your heart for you who are confused about your destiny. I will solve it. You must contemplate Me. Ask Me why things are the way they are and ask where you fit. And I will inspire every action you achieve. You must enter into My rest.
A Trinity Apostle is threefold: he can pray, he can work, and he can rest. Each of you is called to a different career. Didn't I tell you that you would do even greater things than I Myself, but you must accept who you are in Christ with all your failings in order to become who I want you to be.
You are unique. Each formed differently from your mother's womb. No one can fulfill your ministry of special works better than yourself, but you must not have pride because your hope and your performance come directly from My Divine Grace that you feed in the Holy Eucharist. Without Me you can do nothing, but live and exist. There is no real joy apart from serving Me.
My Sacred Heart burns with love for you. My Mother's Heart is One with Mine. Her Heart houses your dreams. As a mother hopes for her children -- My glorious mother intercedes for each of you. As St. Joseph My foster father assists her in picking up the threads of each of your lives as they weave the miraculous goals of your existence.
I caution you only on one thing do not act out of fear, guilt or anger. Bring everything to Me in prayer, Holy Communion, confession, reparation, and contemplation. In this I will give you the truth about every detail of your lives. And you will know and hear a voice saying clearly ‘this is the way walk you in it’.
There is only one reality that matters, take your happiness from Me and let it flow into every avenue of your life. The work I have begun in you all My Trinity Apostles I will bring to completeness. You are destined for heaven. I love you with an ever-lasting love. You are dead to sin and satan has no hold over you, because I have already crushed his head with My heel.
Live in My love. Give My love. Honor Me by loving your neighbor as you love yourself. But love yourself and understand that I don't call you servant I call you friend. Friends have fun. Friends relish life. Friends laugh together, cry together, and secure one another. There is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother or a sister. I am that friend.
But remember this, when you call Me Savior, I call you My royal priesthood. Know that I look upon you as My priests and priestesses. I gave My life for you. My desire is to live in the sons of men and the daughters. I live in you and you live and move and have your being in Me.” ... -Jesus Christ, Divine Revelation through a Lay Franciscan
Fr. Albert Shamon uses the analogy of a child running to embrace his father. Because of his size, he cannot do it until his father first picks him up and hugs him. "In the same way, at Holy Communion we rush to meet Christ, but we can do little more. He must pick us up, embrace us, love us, pour his life and love into us." –Fr. Shamon
"For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that he may grant you in accord with the riches of his glory to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inner self, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the holy ones what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God." (Ephesians3:14-19)
“The one thing that matters is union with God. The Saints were entranced by the beauty of the Redeemer’s face.” –Fr. John Corapi
St.Thérèse of Lisieux, the Little Flower, described her first Holy Communion as a fusion with Christ. "Just as food becomes one with the eater communion makes us one with Christ. We become God-like, divinely eternal, like him. It is the greatest gift in the world."
Contemplate Christ -- place yourself in the Bread of Life Discourse! (John 6:22-59) You are on Mount Zion in the Upper Room at the Last Supper. The Lord Jesus girds Himself with apron as He seats you at table next to John the beloved Apostle. The Lord of all ages offers you faith to live life in the Most Holy Trinity. He takes the bread, says the blessing, gives praise, thanksgiving to His Father, He breaks the Bread of God, and gives it to you. At the end of supper, Jesus takes the cup, blesses it, and gives you the Cup of Eternal Salvation. You drink the blood of Christ. This is the Holy Mass!
“The gift that is the Holy Spirit, through whom the divine life that the Father has in Himself and gives to His Son is communicated to all men who are united with Christ." –Pope John Paul II, Redemptor Hominis. As Apostles of the Immaculate Heart and the Sacred Heart united to the Father’s Heart by the Holy Spirit through perfect love we find the Blessed Mother, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
You carry your cross that is how you live the Cross of the Mass. The Eucharist is to feed you, to strengthen you, to keep you growing in Holy Love. As you are frequently fed you are able to give more. It's only in this giving that you grow. Love more! Love more! The considerate, loving heart grows the most in its sanctified reception.
As the United Hearts of Jesus and Mary beat in one accord recalling the blessed infant Jesus in whose name all miracles were performed. Sweet Mary, Tabernacle of the Holy Spirit, continued lifeline to the little Jesus; we take refuge in your maternal motherhood gently resting on the breast of Almighty God, drawing from the beating hearts that now are one.
“May the Most Holy Trinity” as St Gertrude said, "Spin about the Father, Holy Spirit, and Son flowing through the Immaculate Queen of Angels in one, perfect, continued, encirclement. O, magnetic, majestic force pull us gently into the living stream, the perfect circle of holiness, for in them we move and feel and think and have our being. In this we all are one as the dream of Jesus becomes fulfilled."
"But I want to tell you that eternal life must begin already here on earth through Holy Communion. Each Holy Communion makes you more capable of communing with God throughout eternity.” –St. Maria Faustina of the Blessed Sacrament
Each day is a new beginning for the Trinity Apostle. We are invited to lift up our heart in thought, word, and deed to the Almighty Father, through the Son, in the Holy Spirit. Holy Communion allows us to eat the Bread of God and drink the wine of compassion which is the Blood of Christ. The Most Holy Trinity within us advocates public witness.
Your spiritual life can be compared to navigating a ship. You will get to your heavenly destination if you stay anchored in Christ. One degree variance during a ninety-day boat trip would cause you to end up on the wrong continent. Unrepentant immoral lifestyles do, too.
The ultimate truth: Jesus lives in every Tabernacle the Blessed Sacrament is contained. God calls out to you from His Holy Temple -- the Ark of the Covenant. We who acknowledge Him soar in worship, thanksgiving, and contrition. Our faith is firm; consistent with official Church teaching regarding Christ’s hidden, invisible, Real Presence. You and the Lord are all-powerful together.
"Mary is the full-of-grace woman, chosen and prepared by God to bear and bring up his Son, the world's Saviour . . . The Mother of the Eucharist ardently desires to share its graces with us from her privileged position next to her Son's tabernacle-throne." –Fr. Richard Foley, SJ
This practice [Daily Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament] repeatedly praised and recommended by the Magisterium is supported by the example of many saints. Particularly outstanding in this regard was St. Alphonsus Liguori, Founder of the Redemptorist Order, Bishop, and Doctor of the Church, who dedicated his life to the Holy Eucharist, wrote: “Of all devotions, that of adoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the greatest after the sacraments, the one dearest to God and the one most helpful to us.
The Eucharist is a priceless treasure: by not only celebrating it but praying before it outside of Mass we are enabled to make contact with the very wellspring of grace. A Christian community desirous of contemplating the face of Christ . . . cannot fail also to develop this aspect of Eucharistic worship, which prolongs and increases the fruits of our communion in the body and blood of the Lord."
"Like the woman who anointed Jesus in Bethany, the Church has feared no `extravagance', devoting the best of her resources to expressing her wonder and adoration before the unsurpassable gift of the Eucharist" (Ecclesia de Eucharistia, Pope John Paul II, 25, 48). The Holy Father envisioned Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration in every Catholic Church and Christian community.
In Orissa, India in 2007, Christians amid tremendous religious persecution saw their villages destroyed, homes burned to the ground. Over seventy martyrs shed their blood for the sake of the Gospel. A catechist with a Bible in his hand was walking with his wife when a group of hooligans converged upon them. They told him, “Burn your Bible or we will kill you.” His wife cried out, “Honey, do not burn your Bible.” To which the catechist replied, “You can kill me, I am not going to burn the Bible” They were let go.
God divinely benefits individuals, families, parishes, communities devoted to: Eucharistic Adoration; First Friday; and First Saturday. http://www.dailyapostle.org/ is specifically designed to help laborers usher in the Era of Peace -- the New Springtime of Grace.
Every remnant faithful, pro-life protector worldwide needs to get down on their knees before Jesus one-two hours per day to yield the Master’s harvest. As Christ’s front-line warriors ring in the Culture of Life through deep faith, taking the intense love of the Sacred Heart received in the Holy Eucharist to stand for what is right, regardless the cost. Divine Infant Jesus, overturn the legalization of abortion. Amen.
The King of All Nations desires a swift end to: abortion, contraception, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research, same sex union, and pornography. They are always wrong. The modern day holocaust of abortion claims over fifty million Holy Innocent casualties per year, worldwide. Help secure God’s victory! Pray the Rosary or sidewalk counsel at an abortion mill and Planned Parenthood with a small group every week. “For where two or three are, gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” (Matthew 18:20) Your being there saves lives! God touches their hearts!
Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests For Life affirmed, "We will celebrate in our lifetime the restoration of rights to pre-born babies." Fr. Frank recently celebrated a Mass where the babies being baptized had been saved from abortion. The sidewalk counselor who assisted the parents of a baby girl was selected to be the child’s Godmother. Pray that similar miracles occur in all corners of the earth.
As the Eucharistic Reign of Jesus continues we joyously declare in one voice, "In God We Trust! In God We Trust!” Now, and Forever!
Contact us firstname.lastname@example.org if coordinating a Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration chapel appeals to you. Or inform the pastor of your intent to have Eucharistic adorers praying to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament or Tabernacle during parish office hours. Make the leap.
Come before Christ regularly worshipping in the Holy Spirit. You will be strengthened while carrying the heavy crosses. Daily Apostles have the supernatural grace, courage, wisdom, and ability to be the Good Samaritan the Gospel speaks of by actually bringing our wounded brothers, sisters to Jesus. He is always the solution.
The Great Transformation occurs as Jesus truly enters your life bringing the light of faith and Divine Mercy into your darkness of paganism. And you begin living Holy Mass to the full; assisting persons whose spiritual lamps have been extinguished or severely dimmed. The day will dawn when mankind brings perfect honor, glory to God the Father – divinely made in His image and likeness.
“Jesus presents himself as the "living bread", that is, the food which contains the life of God itself which it can communicate to those who eat it, the true nourishment that gives life, which is really and deeply nourishing. God asks each one of us to welcome him, to put at his disposal our heart and our body, our entire existence, our flesh the Bible says so that he may dwell in the world. He calls us to be united with him in the sacrament of the Eucharist, Bread broken for the life of the world, to form together the Church, his Body in history. Whoever eats of this Bread and lives in communion with Jesus, letting himself be transformed by him and in him, is saved from eternal death.” –Pope Benedict XVI
“God speaks in the silence of the heart, and we listen. And then we speak to God from the fullness of our heart, and God listens. And this listening and this speaking is what prayer is meant to be: oneness with God, oneness with Jesus.”-Blessed Mother Teresa
Know, love, reverence, worship, and serve the Father by serving others like it is Jesus. Christian freedom is being a servant of God.
“Your lives must be like our Blessed Mother’s: quiet and hidden in unceasing union with God, pleading for humanity and preparing the world for the second coming of God.” -St. Faustina Kowalska
Almighty Father, let us be exceedingly astonished at the Holy Mass, the absolute epicenter of our spiritual lives. Amen. “The glory of God is a human being radiantly alive.” –St. Ireneus
Jesus in the Holy Eucharist is the New Jerusalem whom everyone needs daily contact with. The Hope they see in His followers draw them. They are willing to risk everything to be close to Him.
“Them I will bring to my holy mountain and make joyful in my house of prayer; Their holocausts and sacrifices will be acceptable on my altar, For my house shall be called a house of prayer for all persons.” (Isaiah 56:7)
Jesus cried out and said, “Whoever believes in me believes not only in me but also in the one who sent me, and whoever sees me sees the one who sent me.” (John 12:44)
Divine Revelation is God our Father revealing Himself in the Person of His only Son, Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit. Believe in I AM -- The New Way, Eternal Truth, and the Eucharistic Life!
