THE PLACE OF THE MASS IN THE DIVINE PLAN

CHRIST'S INTERVENTION

At this tragic moment in the history of humanity, when the Blessed Trinity could have, conceivably, left us to shift for ourselves (i.e. left us in our state of hopeless misery); Jesus, listening only to His divine Heart, intervened:

"Father, these men are for Me the sign and expression of Your love. They are My children--as this earth is already My garden. They are Mine, for it was for My sake that You gave them life and being. Already, they have captivated My Heart! Never will I abandon them! Since they are incapable of knowing My joy, I am determined to share their misery."

"Christ was to have come in glory; like the bridegroom, whose arrival on the wedding day is joyously awaited by the wedding guests. Now His coming will take place under the reign of Sin; in a body capable of being crushed by suffering; with a Heart that affliction will overwhelm, but that only love can break! He will come to destroy sin; this 'wall of separation' between God and man--between man and man. He will reconcile in His Blood Heaven and earth. He will unite the peoples."
