56. My Reply to the Prior (near-identical copy)
August 7, 2017
With love in Christ to yourself and to all the other brothers and the priest! Please pass on my regards.
Thank you for your response. However, as I understand circumstances, the diocese will not do anything unless you and the monastery strongly enough instigate its action. Therefore, while you write that you do not want to pursue the matter, God, however, is in charge. Meaning, if, in fact, God’s desire is to bring forward to the Church His private, divine revelation given to me, this should be done. Thus, you need to discover what is God’s true desire.
“Not my will, but thine be done” (Luke 22:42).
Brother Luke and I agreed that we had both witnessed a miraculous sign confirming that God desired that His message come forward into the Church. Therefore, if my and Brother Luke’s assessment is correct, the message should come forward because God is the head of the Church. With that in mind, I don’t see any other ethical avenue for you to travel, other than one which analyses whether or not my perception and Brother Luke’s perception were correct. How else can I view this? If I am mistaken, please, explain how so.
Since the time of my leaving the monastery, God’s message has more unfolded. God willing, I am glad to return to the monastery so that you and the brothers can better analyze what happened and decide whether to push the matter up to the diocese level.
God bless you!
