13. From the Book of NUMBERS
he Lord said to Moses, “Bring the tribe of Levi and present them to Aaron the priest to assist him. They are to perform duties for him and for the whole community at the tent of meeting by doing the work of the tabernacle. They are to take care of all the furnishings of the tent of meeting, fulfilling the obligations of the Israelites by doing the work of the tabernacle. Give the Levites to Aaron and his sons; they are the Israelites who are to be given wholly to him. Appoint Aaron and his sons to serve as priests; anyone else who approaches the sanctuary is to be put to death.”
NUM 3, 5-10
13. The cult of God curtailed to the limits of the absurd
God the Father: Listen to Me. I am not talking here about personal insults, but the cult that has been curtailed to the limits of the absurd, the tendency introduced into the Church that makes those who come to worship Me, to offend Me. To all this is added human thoughtlessness and indifference, which is no longer limited by anything. Regulations regarding worship have been protecting Me and also you from a disrespectful approach to sacred things.
– Teach us everything anew. Is it possible that we give you glory again the way you desire it?
Yes. It’s possible. You know well that I am not bored by teaching those who want to listen, and since you want to listen and are asking Me what I desire, I will tell you everything. (…) Write. Sacred objects should be treated with particular reverence. These objects include not only liturgical vessels, but also books and vestments, as well as all the objects that are placed on the Altar during the celebration of the Sacrifice of the Holy Mass. These objects are sacred and should be treated as such. Thus, regardless of whether they have value in people’s eyes because they are expensive or not, they are sacred and should be treated with reverence. Care for them should be expressed in keeping them in proper cleanliness, storing them in a worthy place, and carrying them in a worthy manner by persons called for this. Not everyone, who has hands, should carry them. They should be treated as sacred objects. The same applies to objects that are not on the Altar, but are used for sacred activities, especially for the celebration of the Sacraments.
Next, I want only those in the state of sanctifying grace to be allowed to touch sacred objects, and not according to your human views, sympathies or interests. You do not see the difference between a soul sanctified by My presence and a soul persisting in sin. An abyss lies between those souls. Will you invite to clean your home someone who has not washed for years? Will he not dirty everything he touches? Be reasonable if you lack faith. Strive to approach sacred objects carefully. In addition, haste is always a bad counselor, and you should always tiptoe around Me out of respect and fear of God, in order not to offend My Holiness. The temple, in which the most holy Sacrifice is performed, should serve primarily for this purpose. Thus, when service is held in My honor, I want to be the first to whom you open your lips. Do you understand Me?
– I do not know.
Not man should be hailed and greeted before My Altar, but Me. The priest should first speak with Me, because he comes to Me. Indeed, the old liturgy presupposes the possibility of interrupting the Holy Mass, but only for important reasons. Not for dealing with human affairs. Thus, would it not be proper, coming to Me and organizing a celebration for My glory, to first offer Me the Sacrifice and open the lips for Me? In order to avoid such misuses, the teaching was postponed for the time after Holy Mass, for in it the priest turned to the faithful. First, however, he turned to God, stepping on the steps of the Altar in silence and concentration, to direct his first words only to Me. This fasting of silence is already a pleasing sacrifice to Me. It is like the sacrifice of virginity, in which the lips of the priest preserve the gift of speech for God.
If you will remember that I am first and you will make Me first in all things, these errors will appear themselves to your eyes and all inadequacies will disappear. When I will have received My due praise from the priest and the assembled people, then comes the time to pour My graces on the faithful through the Word.
Also, the faithful coming to Holy Mass should be hushed and silent, and greetings and mutual kindness should be kept for the time after the Holy Mass. If they come to Me, they should first greet Me, direct their eyes to Me, and everything else should wait, including thoughts that are not directed to Me. Such a state of the mind and spirit is able to participate worthily in the Holy Mass. If you believe in My presence in the Tabernacle, be silent. Let your spiritual eyes see a different reality than what your sensual eyes are seeing.
Before the beginning of the Holy Mass, My Tabernacle and Altar are surrounded by numerous angels. The heavenly spirits descend on Earth to worship Me in this Most Holy Sacrifice. The entire Heaven is silent, preparing itself to participate in the Passion of My Son. The souls of Saints persist in a prayer vigil from the Garden of Gethsemane. In a moment, the greatest Mystery shared by Heaven and Earth will begin. The suffering souls honored with this grace are bowing in humility before the Altar. Everyone is waiting for the priest, through whom the proper Sacrifice of the Passion of My Son will begin. If you will be entering the temple into this spiritual reality, it will not come to the mind of any of you to greet other people or smile at anyone but the agonizing Jesus, who drenched in a bloody sweat, is awaiting his traitor.
By entering the temple, you enter the Garden of Gethsemane in order to live through the Passion of Jesus together with Him. Prepare yourself through fervent prayer so you will not succumb to temptation. May the agonizing Savior find support in your conscious vigil and sincere compassion. Join His Most Holy Mother and learn from Her the worthy participation in this unrepeatable and unique event in the history of mankind, the work of Redemption and Salvation of the world. I bless you, daughter, in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
