THE BEATIFICATION OF DON DOMINIC LENTINI
MESSAGES THROUGH JULIA
1) 11/10/97, at 17.00, Church of the Holy Spirit
Julia goes into ecstasy at 17.20 approx.. It’s a vision:
"11 October, church of the Holy Spirit. During Don Mario’s preaching, namely at the beginning (of the sermon) I saw Jesus radiant with light and he was looking at us all with eyes full of joy. Then he opened his arms and raised them to heaven and remained so for a while as a sign of prayer. After he had prayed he lowered his arms for a while and blessed us: but in a special way he stopped over the spouses and upon them he sent an enormous light. Then he went away while still pointing at his Heart with his finger."
2. St. Peter’s Square, 12/10/97, at the Pope’s Mass from 10 a.m. till 12.15
There were two moments of ecstasy: a vision and a message in the customary manner.
A) The Vision at the Moment of the Beatifications (at 10.25 approx.) :
In order to find out about it I asked Julia to write it down at the Hostaria Orfeo restaurant, on d’Orfeo 20 – alley, at 14.10. Julia saw today's 5 beatifications like this ... and those beatified were: Lentini (1770-1828), Elias del Socorro Nieves (1882- 1928), Giovanni Battista Piamarta (1841-1913), Maria of Jesus Emilie D'Oultremont (1818-1878) and Maria Teresa Fasce (1881-1947):
"St. Peter’s (Square), at 10.25, on 12 (October 1997)
A Vision: I saw the Pope and Lentini and the other Saints of the day (= today's other 4). Lentini and the Pope were together, namely beside one another. The two of them were soiled with blood: they were dressed in white garments but their clothes were dirty with blood. Then the Pope addressed Lentini saying: Son, now the road is being liberated and we can walk, but it still needs a bit more because the children still don't listen to my voice. Lentini smiled and bowed his head at these words and addressed me saying: My daughter and sister, tell Little John, namely the Pope, and the whole world that the Cross is preparing to give its fruits ... get ready to receive them: the fruits that will come to you are fruits that the Father has in his Book. Don't be frightened by what I am saying: be aware that IT IS TIME TO DO THE FATHER’S WILL! Go forward, my little sister, and don't be frightened! The cudgels have still not completely disappeared, my daughter and little sister, pray again! I bless thee with my Jesus’ Cross. Accept again the persecutions which your Jesus and mine wants to give thee!"
B) Jesus at the Consecration of the Mass (at 11.45 approx., in the customary fashion):
(Jesus) "Draw from the Spring of my Heart, feed on my Body and Blood. Accept with love the thorns that I sew along your way, press close to my Cross - love and forgive. I bless you with my Cross. Listen to Mary’s cry and go forward!"
3) At St. Peter’s Tomb W (at 15.10, in the customary manner):
(Julia) If it is you glorify the Father (2). (Our Lady) Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be world without end. Amen.* My daughter, drink also today my Jesus' green cups and sacrifice yourself once again with the pains of childbirth for humanity. My daughter, I am here among you. From the ALTAR OF MERCY I ask you to hold up my Jesus’ Living Gospel and I ask you to be Mothers of the Cross: I ask you to follow the way made by the Holy Thorns of my Jesus’ Crown. My daughter, Cross of my Heart, sacrifice yourself again and drink also the cups of my Jesus. Today I ask you to pray: pray with the heart! But stop and look inside yourselves again: dig, dig, my children! I am Mother and if I ask you to dig - it is because humanity is going to perdition because it looks at my Jesus’ Cross with frivolous eyes: while it gets lost behind the things of the world! My children, return to being light of the Cross, approach the Holy Sacraments with love: renounce Satan! My children, MY PLAN COMES FROM FATIMA and WITH MY IMMACULATE AND SORROWFUL HEART THE WALLS - WHICH ARE COLLAPSING - WILL BE LIFTED UP. My cross, tell my Little John, namely the Pope, to come down the Stairs again and open the Holy Portal: what he must accomplish he must do it now: immediately! (= to accept Mary who brings Jesus in the trustworthy centers of visionary-phenomena ...editor's note) my children, but help him also with constant holy prayer: help him to carry the Holy Cross! MY PLAN WILL BE FULFILLED IN THE WHOLE WORLD and AT THE ALTAR OF HOLY MERCY THE FLOWERS OF JOSEPH MY SPOUSE WILL BLOSSOM! Don't be scandalized by these words of mine: but love - let ye love - love! forgive and exercise Holy Charity! My children, listen to what PETER tells you. (St. Peter): The Peace of my Jesus be with you all! Be humble, my brothers: be poor like my Jesus has chosen you to be. Look around you, listen to God’s Voice, banish the world's noise, but I implore you, take a look at the Cross, place yourselves on the Rock because the times which God has prepared are upon humanity: but you still don't want to see them! Even now you look here and there, you murmur within yourselves: Is it true what we are seeing? Is it true what we are hearing? I am here in the MASTER’S HOUSE where He gave me his Keys. I look at you, my brothers, because I too was lost: when the Master called me I did not know what to do and what to say, but like a mother I've opened my Heart, I've given my keys (= of Peter’s heart ...editor's note) to my Jesus and made him dwell within me. My children and brothers, I exhort you to be little - to let the Peace and Shalom of the Father’s Heart come in. My cry rumbles like the Rock: listen to it, don't get lost behind the things of the world, my children! Little sister of my Heart, Little Cross, you have to suffer again! Now place in your heart what I tell you, at a subsequent time you shall write it down and hand it to little Mario: my heart’s little brother. Don't be frightened! (there is a pause...editor) I beg you, little sister, don't reveal it beforehand, keep it inside you until you are given the way to write it down. (Julia) Help me to keep it in my heart: give me the strength to go forward because my strength is failing! (St. Peter): Stubborn little sister, don't be afraid: the Father’s Grace and Light are upon you, you were chosen as the Living Cross of my Jesus and yours, ... hold up the road of the Childbirth's Door and don't be afraid of anything or anybody! Now I dismiss you all with the Holy Blessing: May the Father’s Love and Constancy descend upon you! May the Holy Spirit’s Light and Love descend on you! May the Constancy to accept my Holy Love descend on you! I bless you with the Poverty and Humility of the Holy Cross. Go in peace and cry out God's Love to humanity! My cross, suffer again for the children who don't accept my Word. Now pray in the silence of your heart!"
4) In the church of St. Nicholas at Lauria (12/10/97, at 21.45): A VISION
We leave Rome at 16.30. We arrive at Lauria about 21.15. There's time to celebrate the first Mass in honor of Blessed Lentini and to thank the Blessed Trinity. Julia has her last vision, which she writes down the next day at home in Thurio:
"A Vision. At Lauria, in the church of St. Nicholas. During the Consecration of the Mass I saw that instead of Don Mario ... Jesus and Lentini were there: contented to celebrate Holy Mass. At a certain point all three were there, Don Mario, Jesus and Lentini and they were distributing many Hosts and the church was full of Light. Then Jesus and Lentini went off and again Don Mario remained and finished holy Mass by blessing us".
