T R U E L I F E I N G O D 20 The following is an extract froman address given by Vassula to the Ecumenical Conference of the WORLD COUNCIL OF CHURCHES, Geneva, January 23 1992. One day, quite unexpectedly, God came suddenly and surprised me. It was late November 1985, He said: “Will I, brother, one more season go through the pain I have been going through year after year? Or will you give Me rest this time? Am I going to drink one more season the Cup of your division? Or will you rest My Body and unify, for My sake, the Feast of Easter? In unifying the date of Easter, you will alleviate My pain, brother, and you will rejoice in Me and I in you. And I will have the sight ofmany restored; ‘my Beloved! my Creator!’… I solemnly tell you: summon, assemble all of you, and listen this time to your Shep- herd: I will lead you in the way that youmust go. SendMy Message to the ends of the earth.” (4/10/1991) “My Spirit will be at work restoring Peace among brothers and throughMy Cross andMyWounds, I will unite you all in one single Body and have you glorify Me around One Single Tabernacle, and the barrier which keeps you apart will be broken. The ban will be lifted (Rv. 22: 3) and My Sacrificial Throne will be in its place. Come to Me as little children that I may open the eyes of your soul that you may see what Hope My Call holds for you.” (Jesus, 25/10/1991) Patmos 2007, feast of the Holy Spirit, from the 6th TLIG Ecumenical Pilgrimage, ‘in the footsteps of St. Paul’. Participants included 500 pilgrims from 67 countries, 87 priests, bishops and cardinals from 17 different Church denominations. C hrist, offended, said in a message: “My Kingdom on earth is My Church and the Eucharist is the Life of My Church, this Church I Myself have given you. I had left you with one Church but hardly had I left, just barely had I turned back to go to the Father, than you reduced My House to a desolation! You leveled it to the ground! And My flock is straying left and right… For how long am I to drink the Cup of your division? Cup of affliction and devastation! You have offered the Holy One, the One you say you love, a cup so wide and so deep, filledwith bitterness and sorrow that My palate is drier than parchment, My lips covered with blisters. The flavour of this cup this generation is offering Me is as bitter as venom. I am not alone to swallow My Tears, your Holy Mother is sharing My grief since Her Immaculate Heart is united in love to My Sacred Heart but soon I shall renew you all with My Fire.” (TLIG, 14/11/1991) This lament coming from Christ should be heeded by us and the search for reconciliation and unity must pervade the whole life of the Church and become our priority so as to reach this goal that is Christ’s goal. It is our due to God, it is our obligation to God, and it is our responsibility for safeguarding the credibility of the Church. All priests should imitate Me in their life. I am not speaking of those who imitate Me and are like My Abel who was pleasing to Us, because of his sacrifices and his sincerity, but of those who are like Cain, and Esau and Juda and the Scribes and the Pharisees. Of these I am speaking, for their conduct contradicts My Holy Rules. Must I, for their sake, go on drinking from the cup of your division, this cup forced on Me by them? So True Life inGod is to pray for unity and for unifying the dates of Easter, since this is the great desire of our Lord Jesus Christ. We can be the first fruits of unity by assembling and praying together in one heart and one voice. Jesus said: “I need humility and love, and the conversion of your hearts to be the foundation of your unity”. far I have put no pressure on you. I have been pleading with you to unify the dates of Easter but you are not hearing My Spirit; you have exploited the patience of My Father. This time again I am asking you to unite the Easter dates so that My Spirit shines on you with grace and brings My House into one.
