WEEKLY MESSAGE OF SAINT JOSEPH, TRANSMITTED IN THE MARIAN CENTER OF FIGUEIRA, BRAZIL, TO THE VISIONARY SISTER LUCÍA DE JESÚS

Child, contemplate today the surrender of your Lord and during each day of the coming week see how little is all that you can offer to Him who gave His Life for you.

Meditate on each step of Christ, of how He renounced to all apparent glory and recognition on His arrival to Jerusalem, because He truly knew that He would be carrying on His back the sins of all those who at that moment were exalting His Name. He knew how vain was all glory which is achieved in this world and that many of those who were glorifying Him at that moment, for some coins and through fear, would hand Him over to the cross.

Learn from Christ not to seek the glory and the exaltation of the world, but rather receive all recognition as vain and transitory, because what is eternal and cemented in you is not seen and is not honored in this world.

Embrace sacrifice and humility. Embrace the gift of the possibility of imitating Christ and not only eating His Body and drinking His Blood, but let the Eucharist transform you, and that you can be a living imitation of Christ.

Find in each Holy Week, an impulse to follow His Steps. May these days be as the water that feeds the land and that makes you grow as a tree of new life. Let yourselves be nourished by the christic codes and bear fruit that will nourish others who cannot drink from this Source of Life. Find, child, the sense of your life in the example of Christ and discover there that there is something superior that awaits you, that there is a perfect and unique plan for you.

Christ came to the world to show you the Path; open your eyes and follow it. Make worthwhile the Savior’s surrender and generate merits so that He, one day, returns to the world.

He who gives you impulse and leads you to Christ, your Father and Friend,

The Most Chaste Saint Joseph
