We need to be born again

16.08.2011

St. John the Evangelist:  Sometimes God has certain plans and does not let us know everything right away. You were chosen as a child of God, destined for God from the very beginning, though destined for a hard trial of love. The Lord said that we have to be born again and therefore you have been called to show to the world what being born again should look like. Man cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb, but he can be born again from the Holy Spirit in His Divine Womb. Then God, like a mother, nurtures this newborn infant with great care, leading it to grow in faith and watching out so that it would not be wounded in its fragility and weakness and would not lose the grace. God desires such a birth from the Spirit for all Christians. I do not talk here about pagans, because they need a completely different path.

(…) you have to go to those who once again became pagans. The whole world has been christianized, but to a great extent has rejected this Revelation. However, it received the grace and now needs to revive and to give birth again to this grace in itself. All the great works of christianization of the world have already been accomplished. However, God has been rejected and forgotten. The world needs a renewal in the Holy Spirit; it needs to become completely new, because the old world is too corrupt to be repaired. God does not reject pagans, but they must believe in Jesus and only then they can begin to follow your path. However, without the faith in Jesus this is impossible.

The same goes for the Church. The Church must be bathed anew in the Holy Spirit, renewed through holiness, through the sacrifice of holy sacrifices of the holy covenant. (…) The Church is the Divine bride who belongs to God because of its origin. The Church in its establishment is holy, but as a result of the action of Satan, it has been deeply wounded and needs the healing power of God. The Church is unable to remedy on its own to its injury. The Bridegroom must come and raise His bride… without this care of God, the Church will be unable to sanctify itself, because too few saints are left within it.
