Pure love is the sign of the will (+german version)

That is why we pray 7 times a day: “Shema, Israel, you shall love God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your strength. Lord Jesus, I love You with all my heart, with all my soul and with all my strength. Now I lose my soul for Your sake and the Gospel’s.”

When we will pray so this week, let us realize at least once what we are saying. Be aware that Jesus hears you. And when you say to Him: “I love You”, let it really be with all your heart. “I lose my soul” – this is a concrete act of love. Love does not lie in emotions. Pure love is the sign of the will – I want to love even if I do not feel that I give Jesus the first place in my life.

The fifth anniversary of the Byzantine Catholic Patriarchate

On 5 April 2011, the Synod of Bishops of the UO GCC met in Zhovkva, Ukraine, and established the Byzantine Catholic Patriarchate. It became an independent religious structure which exercises prophetic ministry in matters of faith and morals for both the Western and Eastern Churches. Archbishop Elijah OSBMr was elected Patriarch and Bishops Methodius OSBMr and Timothy OSBMr were appointed Secretary Bishops.

Before the establishment of the Patriarchate, the Synod of Bishops of the UO GCC wrote nearly 20 appeals to Pope Benedict XVI, beseeching him not to beatify John Paul II because this gesture would de facto approve his apostate direction in the Church and open the door to syncretism with paganism. Especially his apostate gesture in Assisi became a programme of spreading the spiritual infection of neo-paganism within the Church. In addition, John Paul II is responsible for his tacit consent to the heresies of neo-Modernism which undermined the foundations not only of the Catholic Church but of Christianity in general.

Christmas Urbi et Orbi message is another nail in the coffin

On 6 September 2015, “the Pope” Francis appealed for the suicide of Christianity and Europe by a regulation to accept Muslims in every parish, in every monastery and in every sanctuary. On the day of Christ’s birth he cynically continues promoting the suicide program and invites Herods and thugs to kill the living Christ in the souls of Christians in Europe.

Francis, like a true apostate from Christ, His Gospel and the whole Tradition, pulls the wool over the eyes of the Christian world telling a colossal lie and irreality about so-called blessing for both individuals and states that would adopt the programme of Islamization: May blessings in abundance reward those, whether individuals or countries, who welcome migrants and refugees.The beginning of this “blessing” we have already seen in Paris.

Feng-Shui – pagan house decoration

This whole system of Feng-Shui is tied up with pagan magic practices and with false faith focused on a number of absurdities through which man is deceived, bound and promised false happiness and false prosperity. It does not say a single word about eternity, conscience or morality. One only speaks about spirituality, about harmony with so-called “ch’i” energy, and that according to yin and yang philosophy. It is a whole system of lie. Certain objects are attributed spiritual power. Those who are just superficial Christians let themselves be deceived by these massmedia-advertised practices.

The root of paganism is an effort to find favour with “a deity” or to get harmonized with so-called energies – demons. However, who meets with Christ’s Gospel, the life of the one undergoes a radical change. The one transforms one’s mind and believes in the Gospel (cf. Mk 1:15).

Nowadays paganism is carrying out an effective mission in Europe which has fallen away from the living Christianity.

The fight for souls!

Let us not dialogue but rather bear witness! Let us repeat the truth – this is this. I can start a discussion but if I see that the person I talk to rejects the truth, I must tell him clearly: “This is the truth and it concerns you personally. You either believe or not. The reality is that you will die and whether you like it or not, you will stand before the judgment seat of God and then you will go to heaven or hell. I want to tell you one thing: if you want to be saved, you must give your sins to Jesus; you must confess them and kneel before Him, receive Him as your Saviour, receive His Gospel and His way. He who endures to the end will be saved. And no one will be saved without faith! Not without philosophy but without faith!”

Mission of prayer

We can carry out mission by prayer too. The key words are: “You in me. Jesus, You in me.” I say in spirit: “You in me…” and I add: “…and in my brother and sister too”. In this mission of prayer, I begin to see Christ in other people by faith. But I must first see Christ in me with the eyes of faith.

Jesus will say on the Day of Judgment: “Whatever you did to one of the least of My brethren, you did it to Me. And whatever you did not do to them, you did not do it to Me.” Jesus speaks about doing and not doing. We should do positive things in relation to our neighbour, but in essence we should do it for the sake of Christ. Our Lord Jesus says Himself: “You did it to Me.” It means that Christ is hidden in the least of His brethren, i.e. is in him. To put it better, He is hidden in him like in prison.

The mystery of the gift of a new nature

Dying on the cross, Jesus said to the disciple: “Behold, your mother.” We are saved in the holy name of Jesus: “Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (cf. Rom 10:13) Jesus assumed human nature through Mary and the Holy Spirit. Mary is not God but the Mother of God, and she is full of grace (cf. Lk 1:28). Jesus comes into our heart, too, through Mary and the Holy Spirit. Mary represents us, humans – in fact only those who received Christ. She stood by the cross and experienced the mystery of unity – i.e. crucifixion and death with Christ. She also experienced the truth of Eph 2:6: “He raised us up with Him and seated us with Him in the heavenly places.” She was raised up with Christ at the moment when Christ appeared to her. The Scripture is silent on this event but the Tradition confesses it. In baptism we were grafted on these two mysteries – death and resurrection with Christ. These mysteries should be actualized in us by faith and by the grace of the Holy Spirit.

Hear, O Israel! You shall love God! (Deut 6:4-5)

To love God means to lose my soul for His sake. There is no other way. By losing my soul and its spiritual powers, which are infected by original sin, I will keep it for eternal life.

Today the devil uses a system of lies and various promises to make people love their souls in a wrong way and ultimately give themselves wholly to him and perish forever. He promises money, career, pleasures, but this all is a deceit. There is salvation in no one else but Christ (cf. Acts 4:12). He loves me, He died for me on the cross. He lost His life for me and I am to lose my soul for Him – to give myself wholly to Him to save my soul.

Utter the holy name “Jehoshua” quietly and realize the presence of God – the whole Trinity – in you. Lengthen the vowel “a” by breath and realize that at this moment you consciously love God and lose your soul for His sake.
