TLIG magazine issue 41

In light of recent events in the church and the world, the True Life in God messages find particu- lar relevance. They punctuate the importance of the Eucharist and the Papacy which Christ instituted as a formidable means to strengthen and guide his Church. The Pope whom Jesus refers to as “ Peter” (True Life in God, June 21, 1988), 1 “Peter-of-My- Lambs” (Ibid., May 16, 1989), and the “Vicar” (Ibid., Oct. 10, 1990) of Christ who is “ chosen to sit in Peter’s chair ” (Ibid., May 16, 1989), constitutes an integral element of unity among churches. While preserving and explicating the “living tradition” of the Western Church and “the venerable and ancient tradition of the Eastern Church,” the TLIG writings extend to humanity an urgent appeal for unity among chur- ches through the exercise of love and humility. Rev. J.L. Iannuzzi, STD TRUE LIFE IN GOD December 2018 · ISSUE 41 · ISSN 1363 9358 1 “Return! Return all of you to Peter for it is I, your God, who has chosen him, it is I who have given him a disciple’s tongue, and through Me he is able to reply to the weary…” Vassula was born in Egypt of Greek parents on 18 January 1942. She is married and has two grown sons. Although baptised into the Greek Orthodox Church she rarely thought of God until 1985 when she began to receive Divine Messages. These have been named, by Jesus Himself, True Life in God. They have now been translated into over 40 languages and all the work has been done by volunteers; Vassula receives no royalties for any books published. In these Prophetic Messages (some of the prophecies have already been fulfilled) God is calling the whole of His creation to return to Love while asking Christians to unify His Body, His Church (“Orthodox! Catholics! Protestants! You all belong toMe! You are all One in My Eyes!”). Vassula’s mission is to go out and proclaim the Truth. She has now visited over 70 countries and has spoken in over 900 meetings, some with audiences as large as 100,000 people. True Life inGodMessages are profoundly spiritual and are written in a clear and direct language. We are invited to enter into conversation with God substituting Vassula’s name in these texts for our own. Once having done that we are gently led into the mysteries of the Triune God and begin to grow in the Knowledge of God. Through About the messages of True Life in God the bounty of the Holy Spirit acting in us (Second Pentecost) we then begin to grow in God’s Love, Peace and Unity. Jesus’ prayer to the Father (John 17;21) “may they be one in Us, as You are in Me and I am in You, so that the world may believe it was You who sent Me;” will then be accomplished. Jesus explains about this prayer on 10 December 2001: “My words intonated were meant that the whole of creationmust be affected into a spiritual unity not a unity by a signed treaty; to fulfil My Words the churches must seek first humility and love, graces that can be obtained through the Holy Spirit and through a great repentance;” In the latest Messages published under the title of Odes of the Holy Trinity, the Holy Trinity summarize the purpose of these Divine Messages: to rediscover the revealed Truth and to enter into the spiritual espousal with God, the wedding feast of Apocalypse Chapter 21. In that union of creature with God, God’s Will will be done on earth as it is in Heaven, for we will find true Life, the life in God and with God.
