In the course of their journey he came to a village, and a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. She had a sister called Mary, who sat down at the Lord’s feet and listened to him speaking. Now Martha, who was distracted with all the serving, came to him and said, ‘Lord, do you not care that my sister is leaving me to do the serving all by myself? Please tell her to help me.’ But the Lord answered, ‘Martha, Martha,’ he said, ‘you worry and fret about so many things, and yet few are needed, indeed only one. It is Mary who has chosen the better part, and it is not to be taken from her.’

And now a lawyer stood up and, to test him, asked, ‘Master, what must I do to inherit eternal life?’ He said to him, ‘What is written in the Law? What is your reading of it?’ He replied, ‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbour as yourself.’ Jesus said to him, ‘You have answered right, do this and life is yours.’ But the man was anxious to justify himself and said to Jesus, ‘And who is my neighbour?’ In answer Jesus said, ‘A man was once on his way down from Jerusalem to Jericho and fell into the hands of bandits; they stripped him, beat him and then made off, leaving him half dead. Now a priest happened to be travelling down the same road, but when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. In the same way a Levite who came to the place saw him, and passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan traveller who came on him was moved with compassion when he saw him. He went up to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring oil and wine on them. He then lifted him onto his own mount and took him to an inn and looked after him. Next day, he took out two denarii and handed them to the innkeeper and said, “Look after him, and on my way back I will make good any extra expense you have.” Which of these three, do you think, proved himself a neighbour to the man who fell into the bandits’ hands?’ He replied, ‘The one who showed pity towards him.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Go, and do the same yourself.’

Seeing the crowds, he went onto the mountain. And when he was seated his disciples came to him. Then he began to speak. This is what he taught them:
How blessed are the poor in spirit: the kingdom of Heaven is theirs.
Blessed are the gentle: they shall have the earth as inheritance.
Blessed are those who mourn: they shall be comforted.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for uprightness: they shall have their fill.
Blessed are the merciful: they shall have mercy shown them.
Blessed are the pure in heart: they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers: they shall be recognised as children of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted in the cause of uprightness: the kingdom of Heaven is theirs.
Blessed are you when people abuse you and persecute you and speak all kinds of calumny against you falsely on my account.
Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven; this is how they persecuted the prophets before you.

Now it happened that as the time drew near for him to be taken up, he resolutely turned his face towards Jerusalem and sent messengers ahead of him. These set out, and they went into a Samaritan village to make preparations for him, but the people would not receive him because he was making for Jerusalem. Seeing this, the disciples James and John said, ‘Lord, do you want us to call down fire from heaven to burn them up?’ But he turned and rebuked them, and they went on to another village. As they travelled along they met a man on the road who said to him, ‘I will follow you wherever you go.’ Jesus answered, ‘Foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of man has nowhere to lay his head.’ Another to whom he said, ‘Follow me,’ replied, ‘Let me go and bury my father first.’ But he answered, ‘Leave the dead to bury their dead; your duty is to go and spread the news of the kingdom of God.’ Another said, ‘I will follow you, sir, but first let me go and say good — bye to my people at home.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Once the hand is laid on the plough, no one who looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.’

Jesus talked to them about the kingdom of God; and he cured those who were in need of healing. It was late afternoon when the Twelve came up to him and said, ‘Send the people away, and they can go to the villages and farms round about to find lodging and food; for we are in a lonely place here.’ He replied, ‘Give them something to eat yourselves.’ But they said, ‘We have no more than five loaves and two fish, unless we are to go ourselves and buy food for all these people.’ For there were about five thousand men. But he said to his disciples, ‘Get them to sit down in parties of about fifty.’ They did so and made them all sit down. Then he took the five loaves and the two fish, raised his eyes to heaven, and said the blessing over them; then he broke them and handed them to his disciples to distribute among the crowd. They all ate as much as they wanted, and when the scraps left over were collected they filled twelve baskets.

I still have many things to say to you but they would be too much for you to bear now. However, when the Spirit of truth comes he will lead you to the complete truth, since he will not be speaking of his own accord, but will say only what he has been told; and he will reveal to you the things to come. He will glorify me, since all he reveals to you will be taken from what is mine. Everything the Father has is mine; that is why I said: all he reveals to you will be taken from what is mine.

SOLEMN FEAST OF BABY JESUS

Prayer of the day:
Prayer to Baby Jesus


Spirituality:
In the beginning was the Word

June 13th, 1947 – June 13th, 2019
72nd anniversary of the first apparition
of Baby Jesus to Maria G. Norcia

 

From the Booklet: “The New Jerusalem, Land of love” (p. I)
On June 13, 1947, in the Land of Love, Baby Jesus descending from Heaven, manifests Himself to the young Maiden, giving thus life to a great Mystery, that is inscrutable and inaccessible: the Mystery of Salvation for humanity, that will be manifested over the years through the Maiden chosen by the Father.“

Two days before Giuseppina took her first Holy Communion in 1947 – while her mother with two other women, Lina and Maria Colavecchio, were making cakes for the occasion – she was playing all alone near her house where today the little church stands. Suddenly Giuseppina saw a little soft shiny cloud descending from the sky on which a baby of superhuman beauty was sleeping.
It was Baby Jesus!
The little cloud stopped at about one meter from the little seer. As Jesus opened His eyes which were of incomparable sweetness, He stared and smiled at her. Giuseppina, ravished by the vision, would have wanted to touch His little feet, kiss His eyes, hold Him in her arms, but her arms stretched out could not reach Him. “Mummy, Mummy” she cried out repeatedly, hoping her mother would arrive in time to get Him. Her mother rushed out at once with the other women but, before she arrived, the apparition disappeared. The young girl kept on looking up at the sky, longing to see Jesus again who, in the semblance of His own childhood, had privileged her with a visit before she would have received Him sacramentally. Her mother and the women who were with her were overtaken by overwhelming emotion. They too searched the sky for a long time but with no success, while sharing the joy of hearing from Giuseppina’s lips the details of the wonderful vision. Baby Jesus’ smile remained indelibly imprinted in the little seer’s heart, making her foresee that God would have come again to smile at her. She grew up with this hope and in loving expectation.
She incessantly repeated:
«I love you, Jesus, I love you so much,
I rely on You; do not leave me alone.
Do of me as You please;
May Your will be done».

If you love me you will keep my commandments. I shall ask the Father, and he will give you another Paraclete to be with you for ever. Anyone who loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we shall come to him and make a home in him. Anyone who does not love me does not keep my words. And the word that you hear is not my own: it is the word of the Father who sent me. I have said these things to you while still with you; but the Paraclete, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and remind you of all I have said to you.

‘So it is written that the Christ would suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that, in his name, repentance for the forgiveness of sins would be preached to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses to this. ‘And now I am sending upon you what the Father has promised. Stay in the city, then, until you are clothed with the power from on high.’ Then he took them out as far as the outskirts of Bethany, and raising his hands he blessed them. Now as he blessed them, he withdrew from them and was carried up to heaven. They worshipped him and then went back to Jerusalem full of joy; and they were continually in the Temple praising God.

THE CHRISTIANITY HEALING
FEAST DAY

Sanctuary of the Divine Mercy
Samuel’s Homily

 

While he was still speaking some people arrived from the house of the president of the synagogue to say, ‘Your daughter is dead; why put the Master to any further trouble?’ But Jesus overheard what they said and he said to the president of the synagogue, ‘Do not be afraid; only have faith.’ And he allowed no one to go with him except Peter and James and John the brother of James. So they came to the house of the president of the synagogue, and Jesus noticed all the commotion, with people weeping and wailing unrestrainedly. He went in and said to them, ‘Why all this commotion and crying? The child is not dead, but asleep.’ But they ridiculed him. So he turned them all out and, taking with him the child’s father and mother and his own companions, he went into the place where the child lay. And taking the child by the hand he said to her, ‘Talitha kum!’ which means, ‘Little girl, I tell you to get up.’ The little girl got up at once and began to walk about, for she was twelve years old. At once they were overcome with astonishment, and he gave them strict orders not to let anyone know about it, and told them to give her something to eat.

May 19th, 1974 – May 19th, 2019
45th anniversary of the miraculous healing of Maria Giuseppina Norcia

 

From the Booklet: “The New Jerusalem, Land of love” (p. I)
Four days later [therefore May 19th, author’s note], Jesus appears to Her again, together with Our Lady and St. Mesia (a holy Martyr who lived at the time of the persecution of the early Christians) and heals Her from a deadly disease of which the Woman of God was suffering“

After a few days, Jesus reappeared with the Virgin Mary and the martyr Saint Mesia (…) preannouncing to Giuseppina that He would have healed her … as later happened.
In this circumstance Jesus said to her:

«You see, nothing is difficult for Me.
Those who ask shall receive,
those who love will be loved»”.

Mary set out at that time and went as quickly as she could into the hill country to a town in Judah. She went into Zechariah’s house and greeted Elizabeth. Now it happened that as soon as Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the child leapt in her womb and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. She gave a loud cry and said, ‘Of all women you are the most blessed, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. Why should I be honoured with a visit from the mother of my Lord? Look, the moment your greeting reached my ears, the child in my womb leapt for joy. Yes, blessed is she who believed that the promise made her by the Lord would be fulfilled.’

May 15th, 1974 – May 15th, 2019
45th anniversary of the apparition of Jesus, Mary and St. Michael Archangel

 

From the Booklet: “The New Jerusalem, Earth of love” (p. I)
On May 15, 1974, in a moment of Her great trial and suffering, She welcomes God’s Will, that was manifested to Her. This is the day of Her Wedding with Heaven. Jesus, Our Lady and St. Michael the Archangel appear to Her, and they remain with Her in a long talk. God’s Maiden, pronouncing Her “yes”, marries the Will of the Father that, through His Son, preannounces to her the salvific Mission for humanity that She will have to fulfil“. 

On May 15th, at 2:30 pm, in her bedroom, while praying intensively, she was invested with a very bright light which invaded the whole room. Suddenly, beside her appeared Jesus, the Virgin Mary and Saint Michael the Archangel. It was never easy for Giuseppina to express what she felt when Baby Jesus appeared to her, but it is even less easier for her to say what she felt that day when, after such a long time, Jesus, no longer as an infant but as an adult, came back to console her in her suffering. The majesty of the Lord was incomparable; His beauty extraordinary. A perfume of paradise exhaled from Him; His hair had reflections of gold. Our Lady, of extraordinary beauty, dressed in white with a sky blue veil and belt. At Her side stood Saint Michael the Archangel as an adolescent, all purity, vigour and splendour. The three talked a long time consoling her and instructing her on how to pray and to make others pray, and entrusting her with a mission of salvation“.

Solemn Benediction of the Pontiff Samuel

On the first day of the week, at the first sign of dawn, they went to the tomb with the spices they had prepared. They found that the stone had been rolled away from the tomb, but on entering they could not find the body of the Lord Jesus. As they stood there puzzled about this, two men in brilliant clothes suddenly appeared at their side. Terrified, the women bowed their heads to the ground. But the two said to them, ‘Why look among the dead for someone who is alive? He is not here; he has risen. Remember what he told you when he was still in Galilee: that the Son of man was destined to be handed over into the power of sinful men and be crucified, and rise again on the third day.’ And they remembered his words. And they returned from the tomb and told all this to the Eleven and to all the others. The women were Mary of Magdala, Joanna, and Mary the mother of James. And the other women with them also told the apostles, but this story of theirs seemed pure nonsense, and they did not believe them. Peter, however, went off to the tomb, running. He bent down and looked in and saw the linen cloths but nothing else; he then went back home, amazed at what had happened.

The Doctrine

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Universal Christian Church of New Jerusalem is born by the Will of the Father.

From the New Jerusalem, the Land of Love chosen by the Father for His children’s sake, God the Almighty Father wants to bring everyone back to the essence of Life, to the essence of Holiness, to the essence of the union between Father and Son, so to understand the true childhood and to live and to practice it, in order to finally arrive to contemplate the Face of the Good and Merciful Father.

Through the Universal Christian Church of the New Jerusalem, all that was in the original thought of the Father, has been restarted: to give back to the world everything that was originally generated by His Heart and that has descended in our midst.
