Samuel’s Homily
  

Then Jesus told them a parable about the need to pray continually and never lose heart. ‘There was a judge in a certain town,’ he said, ‘who had neither fear of God nor respect for anyone. In the same town there was also a widow who kept on coming to him and saying, “I want justice from you against my enemy!” For a long time he refused, but at last he said to himself, “Even though I have neither fear of God nor respect for any human person, I must give this widow her just rights since she keeps pestering me, or she will come and slap me in the face.” ‘ And the Lord said, ‘You notice what the unjust judge has to say? Now, will not God see justice done to his elect if they keep calling to him day and night even though he still delays to help them? I promise you, he will see justice done to them, and done speedily. But when the Son of man comes, will he find any faith on earth?’

Now it happened that on the way to Jerusalem he was travelling in the borderlands of Samaria and Galilee. As he entered one of the villages, ten men suffering from a virulent skin-disease came to meet him. They stood some way off and called to him, ‘Jesus! Master! Take pity on us.’ When he saw them he said, ‘Go and show yourselves to the priests.’ Now as they were going away they were cleansed. Finding himself cured, one of them turned back praising God at the top of his voice and threw himself prostrate at the feet of Jesus and thanked him. The man was a Samaritan. This led Jesus to say, ‘Were not all ten made clean? The other nine, where are they? It seems that no one has come back to give praise to God, except this foreigner.’ And he said to the man, ‘Stand up and go on your way. Your faith has saved you.’

Samuel’s Homily

The seventy-two came back rejoicing. ‘Lord,’ they said, ‘even the devils submit to us when we use your name.’ He said to them, ‘I watched Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Look, I have given you power to tread down serpents and scorpions and the whole strength of the enemy; nothing shall ever hurt you. Yet do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you; rejoice instead that your names are written in heaven.’ Just at this time, filled with joy by the Holy Spirit, he said, ‘I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and of earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to little children. Yes, Father, for that is what it has pleased you to do. Everything has been entrusted to me by my Father; and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.’ Then turning to his disciples he spoke to them by themselves, ‘Blessed are the eyes that see what you see, for I tell you that many prophets and kings wanted to see what you see, and never saw it; to hear what you hear, and never heard it.’

Samuel’s Homily

When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi he put this question to his disciples, ‘Who do people say the Son of man is?’ And they said, ‘Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.’ ‘But you,’ he said, ‘who do you say I am?’ Then Simon Peter spoke up and said, ‘You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.’ Jesus replied, ‘Simon son of Jonah, you are a blessed man! Because it was no human agency that revealed this to you but my Father in heaven. So I now say to you: You are Peter and on this rock I will build my community. And the gates of the underworld can never overpower it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of Heaven: whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven; whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.’ Then he gave the disciples strict orders not to say to anyone that he was the Christ.

At this time the disciples came to Jesus and said, ‘Who is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven?’ So he called a little child to him whom he set among them. Then he said, ‘In truth I tell you, unless you change and become like little children you will never enter the kingdom of Heaven. And so, the one who makes himself as little as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven. ‘Anyone who welcomes one little child like this in my name welcomes me. But anyone who is the downfall of one of these little ones who have faith in me would be better drowned in the depths of the sea with a great millstone round his neck. Alas for the world that there should be such causes of falling! Causes of falling indeed there must be, but alas for anyone who provides them! ‘If your hand or your foot should be your downfall, cut it off and throw it away: it is better for you to enter into life crippled or lame, than to have two hands or two feet and be thrown into eternal fire. And if your eye should be your downfall, tear it out and throw it away: it is better for you to enter into life with one eye, than to have two eyes and be thrown into the hell of fire. ‘See that you never despise any of these little ones, for I tell you that their angels in heaven are continually in the presence of my Father in heaven.

He also said to his disciples, ‘There was a rich man and he had a steward who was denounced to him for being wasteful with his property. He called for the man and said, “What is this I hear about you? Draw me up an account of your stewardship because you are not to be my steward any longer.” Then the steward said to himself, “Now that my master is taking the stewardship from me, what am I to do? Dig? I am not strong enough. Go begging? I should be too ashamed. Ah, I know what I will do to make sure that when I am dismissed from office there will be some to welcome me into their homes.” ‘Then he called his master’s debtors one by one. To the first he said, “How much do you owe my master?” “One hundred measures of oil,” he said. The steward said, “Here, take your bond; sit down and quickly write fifty.” To another he said, “And you, sir, how much do you owe?” “One hundred measures of wheat,” he said. The steward said, “Here, take your bond and write eighty.” ‘The master praised the dishonest steward for his astuteness. For the children of this world are more astute in dealing with their own kind than are the children of light.’ ‘And so I tell you this: use money, tainted as it is, to win you friends, and thus make sure that when it fails you, they will welcome you into eternal dwellings. Anyone who is trustworthy in little things is trustworthy in great; anyone who is dishonest in little things is dishonest in great. If then you are not trustworthy with money, that tainted thing, who will trust you with genuine riches? And if you are not trustworthy with what is not yours, who will give you what is your very own? ‘No servant can be the slave of two masters: he will either hate the first and love the second, or be attached to the first and despise the second. You cannot be the slave both of God and of money.’

As the child’s father and mother were wondering at the things that were being said about him, Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, ‘Look, he is destined for the fall and for the rise of many in Israel, destined to be a sign that is opposed- and a sword will pierce your soul too — so that the secret thoughts of many may be laid bare.’

Feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary
Sanctuary of the Divine Mercy
Samuel’s Homily

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.’
And Mary said: My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord
and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour;
because he has looked upon the humiliation of his servant.
Yes, from now onwards all generations will call me blessed,
for the Almighty has done great things for me. Holy is his name,
and his faithful love extends age after age to those who fear him.
He has used the power of his arm, he has routed the arrogant of heart.
He has pulled down princes from their thrones and raised high the lowly.
He has filled the starving with good things, sent the rich away empty.
He has come to the help of Israel his servant, mindful of his faithful love
-according to the promise he made to our ancestors —
of his mercy to Abraham and to his descendants for ever.

Feast of the Nativity of the B. V. Mary
Sanctuary of the Divine Mercy
Samuel’s Homily

This is how Jesus Christ came to be born. His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph; but before they came to live together she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit. Her husband Joseph, being an upright man and wanting to spare her disgrace, decided to divorce her informally. He had made up his mind to do this when suddenly the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, ‘Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because she has conceived what is in her by the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son and you must name him Jesus, because he is the one who is to save his people from their sins.’ Now all this took place to fulfil what the Lord had spoken through the prophet: Look! the virgin is with child and will give birth to a son whom they will call Immanuel, a name which means ‘God-is-with-us’.

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.

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».

Protector of the Little Cradle of Baby Jesus
and Patron of the Universal Church of Christ

Glorious St. Joseph, Obedient Guardian of God’s Treasure, we Your children reverently bow to You, asking for the grace that You can attain us.

Safeguard the Universal Church of Christ, so that the Truth of Christian faith may dwell in the hearts of God’s children and may be welcomed in the hearts of men and women of good will.

Safeguard the Family, the first domestic Church, so that the spousal union and the fruits of a holy love may be protected and loved, defended and respected, preserved and never be violated.

Safeguard the sacredness of Life against every human selfishness, so that Life, the gift of the Father, may be loved and preserved, starting from the natural conception for as long as God wills.

Glorious St. Joseph, teach us to live in holy purity, in living obedience and profound humility, to give sheen to the Christian faith, to treasure it in Truth and to make it welcomed in those who are animated by good will.

Glorious St. Joseph, help us, for the triumph and the victory of Baby Jesus.

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.
