The Age of the Holy Spirit is Also the Age of Private Revelations

His Excellency Paul Tchang-Ryeol Kim, Bishop of the Cheju Diocese in Korea visited Naju on June 12, 1997 and witnessed a miraculous descent of the Holy Eucharist in the Chapel. In the above photograph, His Excellency holds the Eucharist in his hands to bless the faithful in the chapel.


As the book of Proverbs states: “Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will be established.” (#303)

 

God is the sovereign master of his plan. But to carry it out he also makes use of his creatures’ cooperation. This use is not a sign of weakness, but rather a token of almighty God’s greatness and goodness. For God grants his creatures not only their existence, but also the dignity of acting on their own, of being causes and principles for each other, and thus of cooperating in the accomplishment of his plan. (#306)

 

“In reality it is only in the mystery of the Word made flesh that the mystery of man truly becomes clear.” (#359)

"Belief in the true Incarnation of the Son of God is the distinctive sign of Christian faith:  'By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God' (1 John 4:2).  Such is the joyous conviction of the Church from her beginning whenever she sings 'the mystery of our religion': 'He was manifested in the flesh' (1 Tim. 3:16)." (#463)

 

"The unique and altogether singular event of the Incarnation of the Son of God does not mean that Jesus Christ is part God and part man, nor does it imply that he is the result of a confused mixture of the divine and the human.  He became truly man while remaining truly God.  Jesus Christ is true God and true man.  During the first centuries, the Church had to defend and clarify this truth of faith against the heresies that falsified it." (#464)

The Teaching of the Catholic Church - Essay XXIV, The Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist

by Rev. George D. Smith

I. INTRODUCTION

Sacrifice and Sacrament

By sacrifice man offers himself and his life to God, his sovereign Lord and Creator; by the sacraments God gives himself, he gives a participation of his own divine life, to man. In sacrifice a stream of homage flows from man to the eternal Source of all being; by the sacraments grace, sanctification, descends in copious flood upon the souls of men. This twofold stream, from God to man and from man to God, flows swift and strong in the Eucharist, sacrament and sacrifice. As the culminating act in the life of Jesus Christ on earth was the sacrifice which he offered on Calvary to his eternal Father, so the central act of Catholic worship in the Church, the mystical body of Christ, is the Eucharistic sacrifice, the Mass, which he instituted to be a perpetual commemoration and renewal of it. Likewise, just as it was through the sacred humanity of Christ that God mercifully designed to transmit to us the divine life of grace, so the sacrament of the Eucharist, which truly contains that living and life-giving humanity, holds the principal place among the sacraments instituted by Christ for our sanctification.  More...

Blessed Elena Aiello

Beatified September 14, 2011 
by Cardinal Angelo Amato and Archbishop Salvatore Nunnari, petition approved by Pope Benedict XVI in April 2011

Comment:

Blessed Elena Aiello received prophetic messages from the Lord and the Blessed Mother in the 1950s and early 1960s, before the conclusion of the Second Vatican Council.  It is shocking to know that the sins in the world were worse than in the time of Deluge even a half century ago according to the messages that Sister Elena received.  When we read the messages in Naju since 1985 until recently, it is obvious that our current situation is even much worse than at Sister Elena’s time....

The warnings about the sins and the need for penance found in Sister Elena’s messages are the same as those received by Julia Kim in Naju, Korea.  The sacrifices that Sister Elena offered up also seem very similar to those Julia has been suffering, even though it appears that Julia’s sufferings probably have been the severest and longest in history. Julia has also suffered enormous spiritual persecutions from the modernist priests in Korea.  More...


On Current Perceptions and Attitudes Toward the Holy Eucharist

The key teachings of the Catholic Church on the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist are that, by the power of Jesus Christ represented by a validly ordained priest, when the priest consecrates bread and wine during the Mass as Jesus did during the Last Supper before His Passion, the substances of the bread and wine change into the true Flesh and Blood of Jesus Christ, while the species of bread and wine remain unchanged and that, as the Flesh and Blood are of the resurrected and living Jesus and, therefore, are united with His Soul and Divinity, the Full and Real Presence of Our Lord exists in the Eucharist. [...]

God has been deploring the current situation of the worldwide erosion and loss of the true Faith in Our Lord’s Real Presence in the Holy Eucharist and has sent down Eucharistic miracles especially in Naju, Korea (a total of 33 times since 1988) as enlightenings as well as warnings. [...] When God sends down to people His Commandments, Teachings, or Warnings, they must humbly and diligently respond to them by correcting their thoughts and reforming their lives. Tepid responses will not suffice the Divine expectations. More...

Yesterday and Today of Naju

Sworn Testimony by Benedict Sang M. Lee

During the Korean Bishops' ad limina visit to the Vatican in 1991, Archbishop Victorinus Gong-Hee Youn of Gwangju reported to Pope John Paul II, "In my diocese, a statue of the Blessed Mother shed tears." In response, the Holy Father said, "In such matters, it is important to observe the fruits." Then, on October 31, 1995, one year before the Korean Bishops' next ad limina visit in 1996, the Holy Father witnessed the Eucharistic miracle through Julia in the Vatican chapel on October 31, 1995. The Holy Father also received much information about Naju through Archbishop Giovanni Bulaitis, the Apostolic Nuncio who had visited Naju on November 24, 1994. To the Korean Bishops in 1996, the Holy Father said: "Share the wonderful grace in Naju with other countries in Asia". We have also been informed that the Holy Father was looking at the photographs of the Blessed Mother shedding tears and tears of blood in Naju without stopping for about 40 minutes, with his hands slightly raised as he would during the prayers of the Mass.  More...

Final Address of
His Holiness BENEDICT XVI,
Pope Emeritus, 
to the Clergy of Rome

February 14, 2013
  

Alessandra Tarantino/Associated Press

"The virtual Council was stronger than the real Council... this Council created many calamities."

In his final meeting with the Clergy of Rome before resigning from the papacy on February 28, 2013, Pope Benedict XVI offered a remarkably frank assessment of the aftermath of the Second Vatican Council and the "many calamities, so many problems, so much misery" brought about in its wake. It is a stunning wake-up call for all the faithful and clergy of the Church.

Problems in the Church and Reasons for Our Hope - by Benedict Labre Sang M. Lee

... In February 2008, Fr. Aloysius Chang of Naju and I visited the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples (the CEP) to appeal for the restoration of Fr. Chang's priestly rights, as he had been expelled from the Gwangju Archdiocese in the previous month for supporting Naju. A few weeks later, the CEP sent an official letter to the Gwangju Archbishop stating: "As the events in Naju are considered private revelations, the restrictions on Fr. Chang and pilgrims should be lifted and Fr. Chang can celebrate the Mass". This statement by the CEP effectively nullifies all the restrictions including the threat of excommunication by the Gwangju Archdiocese on the pilgrims to Naju and all those who believe in the truthfulness of Naju...  More...


Homily of Fr. Francis Su, Nov. 3, 2012

"Have you ever seen an airplane flying with only one wing on one side? . . . An airplane cannot fly with only one wing on one side; likewise, we cannot fly to the Heavenly Kingdom with only one wing. We need two wings to be able to reach Heaven. The first wing is our love for God and the second wing is our love for our neighbors. Many people say that they love God but do not love their neighbors. In that case, it will be very difficult for them to enter the Heavenly Kingdom."  More...


Bishop Dominic Su visits Naju for the third time - October 2012

To remedy the numerous errors against Naju

With regard to the miracles and messages received by Mrs. Julia Kim in Naju, Korea, there seem to be three categories of responses: (1) There are those who are well aware of what really is going in the Church concerning Naju and stand firm in obeying God instead of obeying men (cf. Acts 5:29). They do not fear the eyes or criticisms of others in visiting Naju, attending the prayer meetings there, or spreading the information about Naju; (2) There are many others who accept the truthfulness of Naju but are hesitant to join the pilgrims, saying that they will quietly continue waiting for the official approval of Naju; (3) There also are those who are badly shaken by hearing some negative rumors about Naju and become seriously doubtful or turn against Naju. Most such rumors have been spread by the liberal priests in Gwangju and they seem to have reached even some of the high officials in the Vatican through the opposing clergy's written reports, DVD, and visits....

Twin Pillars of Victory: St. John Bosco's dream

St. John Bosco explains his dream: "The enemy ships are persecutions. The most serious trials for the Church are near at hand...Her enemies are represented by the ships that tried to sink the ship if they could. Only two means are left to save her amidst so much confusion: DEVOTION TO MARY MOST HOLY and FREQUENT COMMUNION, making use of every means and doing our best to practice them and having them practiced everywhere and by everybody."

The Holy See has never condemned Naju.

Do not be misled by a false rumor. We write this article to make known to the Holy See and all the shepherds and the faithful around the world the true facts of the Blessed Mother of Naju so that the truths and facts may not be left clouded and distorted by the false rumors and incorrect reports spread widely by the opponents of Naju, reminding ourselves of our fundamental duty as human beings and members of the Church: "A human being must always obey the certain judgment of his conscience. If he were deliberately to act against it, he would condemn himself" (Catechism of the Catholic Church #1790).

St. Catherine Labouré and the Miraculous Medal — by Rev. Robert J. Billett, C.M.F.

The night of July 18, 1830 was a night that changed the history of the world. It was the night that the Blessed Virgin Mary ushered in the modern Marian era. It had been almost 300 years since the apparition of Our Lady of Guadalupe in 1531. This night in 1830 Our Lady’s apparition began a series of Marian apparitions, manifestations and ecclesial events that were to succeed one another down to our own day. We can very well see why Pope Paul VI declared, "Our era may well be called the Marian Era." (The Great Sign, #6, p.11; May 13, 1967) More...
