Build me a Temple

Shrine of the Mostt Blessed Sacrament

Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament, Hanceville, Alabama

The evil of which Christians will render themselves guilty by persecuting the Holy Church, will bring her honor, light and the perfume of virtues. After the tribulation and distresses, God, through a means unforeseen by men, will purify His Holy Church, and renew the spirit of His elect. Such a reformation of the church of God and such a renovation of holy pastors shall ensue that the sole thought of it makes my spirit exalt in the Lord. The spouse of Christ is now, as it were, disfigured and clothed in rags, but then she shall be resplendent in beauty: she will appear adorned with precious jewels and crowned with a diadem of all the virtues. All the faithful people will rejoice to see her endowed with such holy pastors. As for the unbelieving nations, they will be attracted by the good odor of Jesus Christ; they will return to the fold of Catholicity; they will be converted to the true Pastor and Bishop of their souls. Return, then, thanksgiving to the Lord, because after the tempest He will give to his church peace and joy which shall be extraordinary. – Saint Catherine of Siena (1347-1380) from the book by her Spiritual Director Blessed Raymond Capua – The Life of Saint Catherine of Siena.

I came across the quote above from Saint Catherine of Siena the other day.  It’s hard to believe she wrote that in the 1300’s, hundreds of years before the Reformation, and before our modern day scandals in the church.  I knew her prophetic words to be true and it gave me great hope.  A church resplendent in beauty and holy pastors.  I also know here we are some 600 years later and her vision of the church has still not come to fruition.  Christ’s bride is still disfigured and in rags, more so than it was even in her day.

I had been feeling the need to have a respite of late.  I don’t have to tell all of you, but it’s hard out there.  Maintaining even prayer can be difficult, but it is most essential during these times.  Pray whenever you can.

I was awakened in the middle of the night the other night with a picture in my head.  It was this one;

incense below monstrance

This picture was taken in April when we had no public Masses here.  The incense never rose and just sat in a straight line below the Monstrance.   Our prayer not rising to the heavens, as if God was saying, “no I cannot hear you, you have removed worship of me.”  In my startled state of being awakened, the Lord simply said, “it’s about worship.”

I have spoken before about how we have many idols and we have broken the first commandment.  Time and again all throughout biblical history curse is brought upon Israel when they violate the first commandment.  It is no different for us.

Over the years I have heard many leaders tell me many things.  One of the most egregious was that Jesus can take care of Himself.  We don’t need to worry about the Eucharist because He is God He can take care of Himself.  I have heard some even have gone as far as to say He hops in and out of the Eucharist as He wills it.

Those passing by reviled him, shaking their heads and saying, “You who would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself, if you are the Son of God, [and] come down from the cross!  Likewise the chief priests with the scribes and elders mocked him and said, “He saved others; he cannot save himself. So he is the king of Israel! Let him come down from the cross now, and we will believe in him.  Matthew 27:39-42

For those of us who are blessed enough to be able to go back to Mass, we have seen hand sanitizer put on the altar at the third elevation and vigorously rubbed on hands as a display for all to see.  A distraction from our Eucharistic Lord, as if to say, “Behold the Lamb of God and Hand Sanitizer.”

“What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you are so careful to clean the outside of the cup and the dish, but inside you are filthy—full of greed and self-indulgence.” Matthew 23:25

I have even been told that an unmasked “Amen” will cause droplets of virus to spread.  The proclamation of “truly” I believe in the real presence of Our Lord is cause for suspicion of sickness.

And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his native place and in his own house.”And he did not work many mighty deeds there because of their lack of faith. Matthew 13:57-58

To be clear, there is sickness, it is real and it won’t go away until we get to the heart of the matter and turn back to God in repentance.  We can use the means of men, by using masks and hand sanitizer but they are not Our Savior, and until we admit our wrongdoing we keep the Savior from saving.

We have seen abuses for years, it just becomes more pronounced now, and many faithful are left feeling like this;

Mary and Mary Magdalene 2

Trying to be reverent and repair for the abuse.

I was feeling tired and beaten down.  I was trying to be grateful, trying to be thankful, but I was failing.  The worlds darkness seemed to be taking over.  And as if the Lord knew what I needed he sent a messenger to reignite my hope.

My friend Brad Schepisi from Laudare.org sent out a message inviting people to go to the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Hanceville, AL.  It was just what I needed.

For those of you who don’t know, the Shrine was built from a Mystical experience Mother Angelica had with the Divine Child.  He told her, “Build Me a Temple and I will help those who help you.”

Divine Child 3

Statue of the Divine Child outside of the Shrine

Anyone who has ever been there knows Mother listened to the Divine Child.  This is a place of beauty, reverence and awe.  Adoration takes place throughout the day.  Confession is offered daily as is Mass.

I was always struck by the fact that it was the Divine Child who held out his heart to her.  But in these days we live in it makes complete sense.  You see, those people who say that Jesus can take care of Himself are correct, He can.  But that isn’t how He chose to come here and do things.  He came as a vulnerable child and placed Himself in the hands of Mary and Joseph, who would never have expected Him to take care of Himself as an infant child.  They did their part in caring for Him and making sure He was not abused, fleeing to Egypt when His young life was threatened.  He came to teach us to cooperate with Him, to cooperate with true love, not so He could be the only one loving.

We too can treat the Eucharist like they treated the infant, or we can treat the Eucharist like Christ was treated on the cross.  It’s the latter that makes Mary’s heart sorrowful that we see so much of today.

I arrived at the Shrine around 10:00 a.m. and just prayed in adoration.  I prayed for our Priests, our country, my family and friends.  I just prayed in the silence.  The silence only broken by the Poor Clare’s reciting the Rosary from behind the cloistered wall before Mass.

During the Consecration at Mass I had a moment.  A moment in my head where I felt as though Jesus showed me a timeline as seen through the lens of the Passion, in relation to the Mystical Body of Christ.   The Passion of the Church, the Bride of Christ was how it was relayed to me.  I felt as though the Lord was showing me all of the times that people professed his name and were members of the church, but they were harming His body.

The early church heresies were like the scourging, Arias and others ripping chunks from His body.  His eye pummeled and beaten by Henry VIII.  Luther pulling his arm from the socket.  We’re now entering into the suffocation of sex scandal and idolatry.

But soon the Lance will pierce our hearts and living water and blood will pour out over all of creation.  We will be converted to the true Pastor and Bishop of our souls.

And so I sat grateful looking up at God instead of down on humanity.  I got up to leave Mass and ran into Mary Pat, Joel and Ann and their friend who are in my Diocese and are lovely faithful people.  It is so edifying to see the light of faith in others.  I headed off to lunch.  I ate lunch with new friends Brad, Blaine, Marge and Cody, and again was strengthened by these people of faith all around.  After lunch as I was headed to the bookstore I ran into Jesus;

Jonathan Roumie

Actor Jonathan Roumie who plays Jesus on The Chosen 

For those of you who don’t know, there is a new series called The Chosen.  If you haven’t watched it you should.  It is an actual series based on the life of Christ.  It does of course take liberty with the story, but remains as true to the historical context and scripture as it can.  It has brought me to tears and made me to know that miracles are real.  I told Jonathan I had binged watched the series twice.  He opened his jacket and his shirt said, “binge Jesus.”  I laughed out loud.  Indeed, if we binge on anything we should binge on Jesus.  I was like a star stuck geek.

What a blessing to be reminded of Jesus Christ by the actor who plays him.  Who knew Jesus was Catholic? lol.  He speaks openly of his love for the Eucharist.

After meeting him I went outside to head to the Crypt Church where Mother Angelica is buried.

Mother Angelica's grave

As I headed outside I could see a wicked storm brewing.  Lightening was flashing all over.  I headed down to the crypt quickly.  Because of COVID almost every activity has been moved to the upper church so when I arrived at the Crypt, no one was there.  I went and sat down and prayed alone.  The storm was so wicked the lights in the crypt were flashing on and off.  I felt like I was truly in a tomb as a storm raged outside.  But I also felt safe in this tomb, totally surrounded in an armor of protection and knowing that a perhaps future Saint in Mother Angelica was there with me.  Being in the tomb, the place where we die to self and hand everything to God because He is the keeper of the storm.  I trusted.

As the day came to a close I said goodbye to friends and I drove away knowing that God is good, all the time, even when we can’t always feel it.

Mother Angelica sure did build a temple, and she definitely helped me.  Mother Angelica, pray for us!

Be blessed out there.

    I was very happy to read of your restoration from a pilgrimage. We have a shrine here, and I go to Mama Mary whenever the storms start brewing. It really helps. Love reading your insights, really helps too. Especially when you sense you are in a lonely boat, we never are, Jesus is always at the helm. Peace of Christ,

    • Peace of Christ be with you too. God is trying to teach us to be grateful in all things because he really is working it all for the good of those who love him. I was starting to miss that point and I am so grateful for other members of the Body of Christ who help bring me back to focus on Him.

  2. Simeon Panagatos says:

    I have been to the shrine good number of times. It is indeed an oasis in this present desert. I would have loved to have been there with you all but had to assist at a funeral mass for my friend and fellow parishioner Jack, who ended his life.

    My first trip there was on a VIP hard hat tour. That was several months before the sisters moved from Birmingham. I used to joke about being in mother Angelica’s bedroom. My good friend Deacon Bill Steltemeier, who believe should be a candidate for canonization, gave me and my grandson and a friend a back stage, so to speak, tour of the beautiful facilities. Mind you this is when he was CEO for the network and he took several hours for the two young men that where with me. He and Ramona were especially fond of my wife. In that and many other things , they had good discernment and taste 😉.

    • Praise Jesus that you’re serving the needs of the people Deacon. I am sorry to hear about Jack. Thank you for being one of God’s ministers and performing that corporal work of mercy.
      Love the story about Mother Angelica.

    I really needed to read this today. I have been feeling as if my joy has been stolen, and that there is a spirit of oppression that is moving in our country. These feelings have brought me to a place where I feel locked into a room with no escape.
    Your words brought hope and comfort to my aching soul. God bless you!

    Oh thank u for posting this… it was beautiful to read and much needed by me today more than ever as the utter loneliness And desperation really hit me today. Thank you.

  5. Mark says:

    You don’t need to post this, and I can’t say I know this to be true, but the thought keeps coming to me. I wonder if this time of COVID shutting down the Mass is what is discussed in Revelation Chapter 8, were heaven was quiet for 1/2 an hour. The entire Church was effectively silenced, and this truly is an event of a biblical proportion. I offer this thought as it could explain some of what is and may happen in the near future.

    On a side note my wife, eldest daughter (she was 5 or 6 at the time) and myself went to see the original church, the shrine and were in the audience for an episode of Mother Angelica Live. She came out to mingle with the audience, saw my Daughter (but I suspect any little child may have had the same effect) and made a bee-line over. She said hello to my wife and I, and then talked with my daughter the entire prep time before the show! I had the feeling at the time that I had been privileged to meet a Saint.

    May God bless you,

    Mark

  6. megbski says:

    Aw Susan I LOVE this!! I was clutching my heart which ached with pain at your hurt and how we must be hurting Christ and then in the next moment to see you smiling with Jesus!! And I can’t wait to visit the shrine! Thank you!

  7. SanSan says:

    Thank you Susan! I love Mother Angelica so much and in so many ways! My husband and I pray for her eternal rest everyday in our prayers. Years ago, we traveled from the West Coast to visit the Shrine and hopefully get a peek at Mother. God answered our prayers! There she was at Mass behind the grail with her sisters. She was able to get out of her wheelchair and stand to receive Jesus. We then got to shake hands with Bill, her right hand man during those days. The whole visit was wonderful. Then on Easter Sunday, 2016, we were in Rome, sitting right behind the Cardinals on the main altar, and the Pope was celebrating Mass when we received the word that Mother had died. It was a joyful moment knowing that our Easter prayers were accompanying her on her journey home. I hope to meet her again one day!

    El Divino Niño – the Pralate
    Veronica of America said: >> … the Shrine was built from a Mystical experience Mother Angelica had with the Divine Child. He told her, “Build Me a Temple and I will help those who help you.” <> In a store in Bogota called Vaticano*, owned by an Italian artist, Father Rizzo found a beautiful antique statue of the Christ Child. Smiling, with his little hands held out, the image was backed with a cross. In his usual easy, jocular manner, Father Rizzo said, “What! So little and already you want to crucify Him? Take off that cross and I will take it.” Father also asked the artist to place the words “Yo Reinare” (“I will reign”) at the base of the statue. The artist made the requested change and Father Rizzo took the statue with him back to the barrio, where he preached to the people about the favors that the Christ Child does for those who have faith and who help the poor. Here, too, he built a small chapel in honor of the Divine Child.”
    *www.thehouseofdivinonino.com/history-of-divino-nino.html#
    This incident clearly shows that Fr. Rizzo came across a statue of El Divino Nunio de la Cruz** in the “Vatican” store. This object of worship, in turn, dates back to the Marian apparitions received by Mother Marian de Jesús Torres in Quito, Ecuador, in 1628AD and 1634AD.
    ** http: //societyofourladyofgoodsuccess.blogspot.com/2015/06/the-divine-child-for-our-time-jesus-del.html
    I will quote larger passages below from https://www.traditioninaction.org/OLGS/A003olgs%20Pinchincha.htm to identify El Divino Niño from the apparition at the end of 1628AD:
    >> Then Our Lady of Good Success carrying her Divine Infant in her right arm appeared to Mother Mariana and said:
    “Lift your eyes now and look at the Pichincha Mountain, where you will see this Divine Infant Whom I carry in my arms crucified. I deliver Him to the Cross so that He might always give good successes to this Republic.”<> The Archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael carried the Divine Child to Pichincha Mountain, which overlooks the city of Quito, and is surrounded only by thorn bushes bearing a delicate flower. Here the Child Jesus took the form of a boy of about 12 to 15 years of age, His expression sweetly majestic. He prostrated Himself on the ground with His arms extended as on a cross and prayed to His Eternal Father to look with favor on Ecuador. <> A celestial light enveloped the whole mountain, and the Christ Child rose and stood before a cross with the inscription INRI at its head. On its left arm hung a crown of sharp thorns; on its right, a white stole.
    The three Archangels reappeared, with St. Gabriel carrying a white Host. St. Michael bore a long white tunic speckled with stars and St. Raphael carried a mantle of a magnificent rose color unknown on this earth. The Child vested Himself in the white tunic and stole, and over them draped the magnificent mantle. Then He approached the cross, took the crown of thorns and placed it on His Head. He extended His arms and remained crucified, but without any nails appearing either on His hands or feet. Down His cheeks streamed large tears, which were gathered up by the Archangels St. Michael and st. Raphael and dispersed throughout the new nation.
    He then ordered St. Gabriel to place the Host behind His head, where it became a kind of halo. Three resplendent beams of light streamed from it. On the center ray appeared the word LOVE, on the ray to His right, ECUADOR, and on the ray to His left, SPAIN. His expression reflected an intense pain, but also a serene joy to suffer for those whom He loved so dearly. As drops of blood fell from the wounds on His hands, feet and forehead, He fixed His gaze on the country and said these words: “I can do no more to show My love for you. Ungrateful souls, who repay the great love and attentions of My Heart with contempt, sacrileges and blasphemies ….. <> “And when they [i.e. Satan with his minions] appear triumphant and when the authority abuses my power, committing injustices and oppressing the weak, near will be their downfall. Dumbfounded, they will fall to the ground.”…
    “Then, joyful and triumphant, like a tender child, the Church will be reborn and will sweetly sleep, cradled in the capable arms and maternal heart of my most beloved elect son of those times, who will render himself docile to the inspirations of grace. We will fill him with graces and very special gifts; We will make him great on earth and even greater in Heaven, where We have reserved for him a most precious seat. For, without fear of man, he fought for the truth and dauntlessly defended the rights of the Church, for which he will justly be called martyr.”
    El Divino Nino standing in front of the cross is Her MOST BELOVED ELECT SON OF THOSE TIMES, that is, of our times. He stands before the cross just like the Lady of All Nations [Amsterdam apparitions], because we are dealing with the Lord and Lady of All Nations – this couple will introduce the elect into God’s Kingdom on earth.
    The cult of Our Lady of the Good Event was created simultaneously in San Francisco de Quito and in Spain. In the new world, against the backdrop of the Pichincha volcano, i.e. against the backdrop of fire, while in the old world, in the mountains of Saint Angel [from St. Matthew] during the terrible lightning storm in 1607AD. The church in Puerta del Sol in Madrid became the main center of the cult of the Lady of the Good Event. Consequently, this devotion is accompanied by fire: volcano, lightning, the sun. Why? Because it is the fire promised by the Lord Jesus [Luke 12:49], and actually Fire, because it is a person, not an element.
    In an apparition to Mother Marianna on February 2, 1634AD, the Blessed Virgin gave a more detailed description of this Son-Man:
    >> “And when they [i.e. Satan with his minions] appear triumphant and when the authority abuses my power, committing injustices and oppressing the weak, near will be their downfall. Dumbfounded, they will fall to the ground. “…
    “Then, joyful and triumphant, like a tender child, the Church will be reborn and will sweetly sleep, cradled in the capable arms and maternal heart of my most beloved elect son of those times, who will render himself docile to the inspirations of grace . We will fill him with graces and very special gifts; We will make him great on earth and even greater in Heaven, where We have reserved for him a most precious seat. For, without fear of man, he fought for the truth and dauntlessly defended the rights of the Church, for which he will justly be called martyr.”
    El Divino Niño standing in front of the cross, this is the MOST BELOVED ELECT SON OF THOSE TIMES, that is of our time. He is standing in front of the cross just like the Lady of All Nations***, because we are dealing with the Lord and Lady of All Nations – this couple will introduce the chosen to the kingdom of God on earth.
    *** https: //www.devrouwevanallevolkeren.nl/en/the-image/
    When Fr. Rizzo depriving El Divino Niño of the cross freed him so that this Chosen One of Heaven could freely act. By inscribing “Yo reinare” he prophesied that this Son of the Church was destined to reign on earth.
    Mother Angelica brought this Little King to Alabama, to the Sanctuary of the Blessed Sacrament, because as a Son of the Church he owes his sanctity to the Eucharist. By building in Hanceville a copy of the Sanctuary of Assisi, she rather unknowingly tied the site to El Divino Niño of Pichincha in Ecuador because this Chosen One was revealed for the first time in San Francisco de Quito. In the Poor Clares in Alabama, He occurs without the cross, because the time of his reign has come. Mother Angelica commissioned the statue of the Divine Child [in the main square of the Shrine] to be made in Madrid, and again, unknowingly – I suppose – she tied the American Assisi in the new world to the Our Lady of Good Event sanctuary in Europe, in the old world. All that I am telling you is consistent because it was not me who invented this story: I am only explaining the work of God’s providence.
    Your meeting, dear Veronica, in Hanceville with Jesus in the person of Jonathan Roumi is also a sign that confirms my discussion here. You have met the Chosen One, this Twin of Our Lord, the Man-Son of the Apocalyptic Virgin. The name Jonathan means “YAHWEH has given” – this is the greatest Gift of the Lord Jesus for our time: “I can do no more to show My love for you.” The surname Roumi simply means Roman. Jonathan’s father is an Egyptian, thanks to which in this story the word of Scripture is fulfilled once again: “I called my son from Egypt” – because we are on the threshold of the revelation of the Sons of God. The plural starts with the number two, the second one is Paraclete. He’s not really a Child anymore because Pichincha volcano has two peaks: Guagua [= Child] and Ruco [=Old Man], so this Chosen One is an Old Child, I suppose. Do you understand what adventure we are participating in? The best is yet to come!
