Missa da Vigília Pascal

A whole new life is possible. 

When Scripture tells us not to remember the “things of old,” it is not really a matter of forgetting, but of not living as slaves of events that are no longer there. We must stay with what was good and take advantage of even the mistakes made for our growth and maturity. It is, in fact, a new chance to start over and be born again by the grace of God. Yes! It is possible to have a whole new life, full of peace, courage and joy. A new beginning is possible at this very moment, because God is with us, because Jesus is alive and gives us His strength to start over. The difference is precisely here: if we used to rely on our energies, we can now begin again with the “power of God”, “by the power from on High,” which is the Holy Spirit. It is from this certainty that our hope springs; and hope renews the heart.

God bless you!

Pregação de Letícia e Adriano Gonçalves no 'Acampamento para Famílias'

Keep fighting for your family

The Word of God tells us that the “Kingdom of God is at hand.” We will have New Heavens and a New Earth, and therefore also, a New Humanity, a New World. Now is not the time of fear, but of struggle! To fight that we may be – with our whole family – where the Lord is waiting for us: in New Heavens and in a New found land. You can not continue deceive God, who waits for you.

Continue to strive for fidelity to Him and that person to whom God has united you in marriage. God wanted to unite the family of the Trinity with a human family: Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Jesus belongs to the family of the Father and the Holy Spirit, but at the same time He belongs to the family of Joseph and Mary. Beautiful is it not? Jesus belongs to the divine family, but at the same time he wants to belong to a family: the family of Nazareth. God wants our families, in following the paths of the Holy Family, to participate in the wonderful Family of God.

God bless you!

translation: Stay firm, my child

We need to be men and women of prayer. May we enjoy every moment of prayer, and prayer for excellence, for us, is prayer to the rhythm of life and sanctified work. Hence, we can easily do these two types of prayer: of sanctified work, because we are praying while we work; and prayer to the rhythm of life, addressing the Lord in all that we are doing – praying to thank Him, praying for help, praying for forgiveness. So we are, practically, all day: united to the Lord! Let’s go, all day long, to seek the Lord’s help.

God bless you!

We are in the time of grace

Translation: Keep Strong My Child

This is the question of many: why does not the Lord hasten His coming? Why not clean the face of the earth? The answer is simple: because He wants to prolong to the time of grace, so that no one is lost. God is delaying His coming so that, in this time of mercy, all His children will convert and cease to live in the corruption of this world. If the Lord had already returned and exercised His justice over the whole earth, many of us would be lost. The time of grace has been prolonged so that more people are saved. Have you ever wondered: what if the Lord had come before our conversion happened? He would find us in the mire of this world and we would be taken with the mud together. That is why God has delayed the time of His coming. We are in the time of grace, but it is certain that there will be the day of cleansing: the great and dreadful day of the Lord. If we proclaim a year of grace from the Lord, we also proclaim a day of vengeance of our God. After cleansing the face of the earth, the Lord will come to implant His Kingdom.

God bless you!

Padre José Augusto preside missa de Quarta-feira de Cinzas na Canção Nova, em Cachoeira Paulista (SP).God can and wants to give us a whole new life.
By waiting on God, the Holy Spirit makes us reach what we would otherwise not achieve. When a man waits on God, nothing else is impossible for him. When a young man is full of hope, he can do unbelievable things. When a husband and wife have hope, nothing can destroy their family, not even death. People remain in or return to a family when they find within it the hope of being able to start over. The best of all this is that, our hope has a name: Jesus. Yes! A whole new life is possible. There is no such great evil, no problem so difficult, that God can not tear it apart. He can, by the power of His Holy Spirit, deliver us from all evils and from any state of spiritual imprisonment and death. He can and wants to give us a whole new life.

God bless you!

You need to put your trust in God.

The only way to survive is by believing! The only way to contemplate victory is by putting our faith in God. If we have a good heart and a good head, we will have raw material to believe in the God of the impossible, of the miracles. If we do not put our faith in God, we will not survive. Believing simply in human foresight, we will fail! However self-sufficient you are, it is not your intelligence, your profession, your money that will give you assurances. You can have it all now and, tomorrow, you can not have it anymore. This is what I have witnessed, unfortunately, with many friends of mine. Like the prophet Isaiah, I dare say you have to put your trust in God. For you to trust, you must have a good head and heart. You need to be a person of faith. For yourself, there is no firmness under your feet. Our only firmness is faith. If you are an unbeliever, a calculator, a logician, you have to stop being. If you want to solve everything with your logic and your efforts, you must change. You must be a person of faith! God bless you! Your brother,
