When Christ says to His companions, "Come and follow Me", they heard His call like thunder within; something that, with a single sentence, awakened their spirits and gave them the impulse to follow a new life. But all this took place on the spiritual levels, while their minds continued thinking and questioning, and their emotions continued unstable and susceptible to the influences of the world and of the human mind.
The apostles followed Jesus because of the potency of His Presence, without knowing who He was. His teachings transformed them, His Presence brought them security and peace. Everything that He did was extraordinary, like a true dream, something different from everything that had happened throughout time.
Spiritual life was the axis of society, and all the people felt honored by being beside a true prophet, united with the Love and the Power of God. But when the Passion of Christ began, while during His agony, the apostles saw in Christ the humanness of fear, sweat blood, suffering, and their beliefs shattered, their structures broke apart, and all the glory that in some way nourished their more human part, from one moment to the next, withdrew, knocking their vanity and their human condition to the ground.
To come to know the sacrifice placed them in an inner struggle between the mind, the soul and the heart, where their assurance ceased to exist, and their knowledge seemed to disappear. The Plan of God was revealed as something different from everything they thought and the renewal of His Love first occurred upon the Cross, and then in the Glory.
Today, children, the path of Calvary has begun for you. After years of extraordinary spiritual experiences, which uplifted you and transformed you, now the sacrifice comes to confront your human condition and overcome the barriers that stop you from living a full surrender, for the renewal of Love.
The cross of these times comes to reveal to you the outcome of the Plan of God, which will show to be different from anything you imagined. You will face contradictions and challenges that will forge within you an awakening of faith and the renewal of Love.
You will finally understand that the union with God begins in the Cross and then in Glory. It is through unconditionally living His Love that you will achieve unity with Him.
Your Father and Friend,
The Most Chaste Saint Joseph
