It has been a while since my last Message of Gold was sent. The reason is due primarily to being bogged down with last year’s accounting paperwork being prepared with precision for the IRS and Tennessee. Even though we are a not-for-profit, tax-exempt organization we still have to make these annual reports.
10-day Retreat on the Divine Will – April 29 – May 8, 2019
We have had a couple of openings come up for staying at the House of Sanctification. Maybe you would like to fill up those spaces. If so, call your airline. The nearest airport is in Santander, Spain. You should contact Ann Ellison at 321-223-1799 right away as she will be heading that way on April 9.
Note: You can stay for all or just part of the 10 days. We suggest a donation of 40 Euros per day for room, enhanced breakfast and light evening meal. Mid-day meals can be taken in the village of Garabandal.
There will be time for exploring the village and surroundings, including the famous Pine Trees.
THE ETERNITY OF MAN’S FORMATION
Jesus to Luisa: And when was man formed in Us [The Trinity]? Ab eterno [from eternity]—because he did not exist in time—but in eternity he always existed, he had his place in Us, his palpitating life, the love of his Creator.
Thus, for Us, man has always been Our ideal—the little space where We unfold Our creative work, the support of Our life, the vent of Our eternal love. This is why humans do not understand so many things—they don’t know how to explain them because it is the work of the Divine Incomprehensibility. These are Our hidden celestial mysteries, Our divine fibers, whose mysterious secrets are known to Us alone—the keys that We must touch when We want to do new and unusual things in the creature. And since men do not know Our secrets—nor can they understand Our incomprehensible ways that We have implanted in human nature—they resort to judging by their own ways of behaving, and they do not know how to explain what We do in the creature; while they are obliged to bow before that which they do not understand.
Now, one who does not do Our Will places in disorder all the acts that We have ordered ab eterno within him. In this way he disfigures Our divine acts and makes a void for those divine acts that We had formed and ordered within him. We loved Ourselves in him—We loved the continuous series of Our acts, formed by Our own pure love. And when We brought man forth in time, We wanted him to agree with what We had done. But to be able to do this, man needed Our Will to give him divine virtue, so that he could do in time what had been done by Us, without him, in eternity. Nor should one be amazed if the Divine Being had formed him in eternity, and the same Divine Will confirmed and repeated Its work in time, continuing Its creative work in man.
