Jesus Christ

“I am your Jesus, born Incarnate.”

I invite you to understand that the Mission, as I compare it now to a rose opening in full bloom, will spread its fragrance throughout the world. Just as a rose can only be opened by My Hand, the Mission has reached full bloom only by the Will of God. It was not forced open, but opened slowly, gradually–sometimes amidst storms of controversy but never damaged–always surviving.”

“The many petals of this rose represent the many aspects of the Mission itself. Each one adds beauty and fullness to the complete bloom, but is not separate. This rose will not shed its petals, but will bloom continually through grace.”
