Jesus’ Movements Were Measured and Solemn During the Institution of the Most Blessed Sacrament

“Every action of Jesus indicated the institution of the Holy Mass” 

“Each was preceded and followed by explanations and instructions.  I saw the Apostles after each noting down some things in the little parchment rolls that they carried about them.  Jesus’ turning to the right and left was full of gravity, as He always was when engaged in prayer.

Every action indicated the institution of the Holy Mass.

I saw the Apostles, when approaching one another and in other parts of it, bowing as priests are wont to do.

Private Instructions and Consecrations

Jesus now gave to the Apostles an instruction full of mystery.  He told them how they were to preserve the Blessed Sacrament until the end of the world, taught them the necessary forms for making use of and communicating it, and in what manner they were by degrees to teach and publish the Mystery.

He told them likewise when they were to receive what remained of the consecrated Species, when to give some to the Blessed Virgin, and how to consecrate It themselves after He had sent them the Conforter.

Then He instructed them upon the priesthood, the sacred unction, and the preparation of the Chrism and the Holy Oils.

The Holy Oils and the Ointment

Jesus spoke of different kinds of anointing, among them that of kings. He said that even widked kings who were anointed, possessed a certain interior and mysterious power that was wanting to others.

Then Jesus put some of the viscous ointment and oil into the empty box and mixed them together, but I cannot say whether it was at this moment or at the consecration of the Bread and Wine that the Lord blessed the oil.

After that I saw Jesus anointing Peter and John, on whose hands, at the institution of the Blessed Sacrament, He had poured the water that had flowed over His own, and who had drunk from the chalice in His hand.

From the center of the table, where He was standing, Jesus stepped a little to one side and imposed hands upon Peter and John … first on their shoulders and then on their head.  During this action, they joined their hands and crossed their thumbs.  As they blowed low before Him (and I am not sure that they did not kneel) the Lord anointed the thumb and forefinger of each of their hands with Chrism, and made the Sign of the Cross with it on their head.  He told them that this anointing would remain with them to the end of the world.

James the Less, Andrrew, James the Greater, and Bartholomew, were likewise consecrated.

I saw too that the Lord twisted crosswise over Peter’s breast the narrow scarf that he wore around his neck, but that on the others He drew it across the breast over the right shoulder and under the left arm.

He told them that after they have received the Holy Ghost they were to consecrate bread and wine for the first time and they were to anoint the other Apostles.”

Judas Departs From ‘The Last Supper’ – From the Visions of Bl. Anna Catherine Emmerich

“Judas was the third to whom Jesus presented the Blessed Sacrament, but it seemed as if the word of the Lord turned back from the mouth of the traitor…”

“I was so terrified at this sight that I cannot describe my feelings..  Jesus then said to Judas:  ‘ “What thou are about to do, do quickly.’ ”

The Lord then administered the Blessed Sacrament to the rest of the Apostles, who came up two and two, each one holding for his neighbor a little, stiff cover with an ornamental edge which had lain over the chalice.

Jesus next raised the chalice by its two handles to a level with His face, and pronounced into it the words of consecration.  While doing so, He was wholly transfigured and, as it were, transparent.  He was as if passing over into what He was giving.

He caused Peter and John to drink from the chalice while yet in His hands, and then He set it down.  With the little spoon, John removed some of the Sacred Blood from the chalice to the small cups, which Peter handed to the Apostles who, two by two, drank from the same cup

During the whole meal, I saw the little red monster with one foot like a bare bone sitting at Judas’ feet and often rising to his heart, but when outside the door, I saw three devils pressing around him.  One entered into his mouth, one urged him on, and the third ran in front of him.

It was night.

They seemed to be lighting him as he hurried on like a madman.

Amazing History of Christ’s Chalice and of The Last Supper With A Description of the Consecration As Given in Vision to Bl. Anna Catherine Emmerich

Peter and John had been sent by Jesus to gather materials needed for the Pasch….

History of the Chalice:                                            “The two Apostles got from Veronica all kinds of table service, which was carried by the disciples in covered baskets to the Coenaculum.  They took from here also the chalice of which Jesus made use in the institution of the Blessed Sacrament.

This chalice was a very wonderful and mysterious vessel that had lain in the Temple for a long time among other old and precious things, whose use and origin even had been forgotten, just as with us, many ancient, holy treasures have throughoutt the lapse of time fallen into oblivion.  Frequently at the Temple, ancient vessels and precious ornaments whose use was no longer known were reset, made over anew, or sold.

It was in this way, and by God’s permission, that the holy vessel (whose unknown material prevented its being melted down, although frequent attempts had been made to do so) had been found by the young priests in the treasury of the Temple.

It was stowed away in a chest along with other objects no longer of use, and when discovered, was sold to some antiquaries.  The chalice and all the vessels belonging to it were afterward bought by Veronica.

It had several times been made use of by Jesus in the celebration of festivals, and from this day on  it became the exclusive possession of the Holy Community of Jesus Christ.

I no longer remember when the parts that composed it were put together;  perhaps it was on the occasion of the Lord’s using it at the Last Supper.

It was now, however, along with all that was necessary for the institution of the Blessed Sacrament, put up in one portable case.”

Inside the Coenaculum on Thursday

“On a flat surface out of which a little board, or tablet, could be drawn, stood the large chalice surrounded by six small beakers.  The chalice itself contained another smaller vase.  I cannot remember whether the tablet held the Holy Thing or not.  A little plate was laid upon the chalice, and over the whole was a convex cover.  In the foot of the chalice was a place for keeping a spoon, which could be easily drawn out.

All these vessels, in fine linen coverings,  were protected by a cap, or case of leather, I think, which had a knob on top.  The large chalice consisted of the cup and the foot, which latter must have been added at a later period, for it was of different material.

The cup was pear shaped, and of a brownish, highly polished metal, overlaid with gold.  It had two small handles, by which it could be raised when its contents rendered it tolerably heavy. The foot was elaborately wrought of dark virgin gold, the edge encircled by a serpent.  It was ornamented with a little bunch of grapes, and enriched with precious stones.  The small spoon was concealed in the foot.”

Abraham Possessed It                                     “The large chalice once belonged to Abraham.  Melchisedech brought it from the land of Semiramis, where it was lying neglected , to the land of Canaan, when he began to mark of settlements on the site afterward occupied by Jerusalem.”

Melchisedech Used It                                                                                                                          ” Melchisedech had used it at the Sacrifice of bread and wine offered in Abraham’s presence, and, he afterward gave it to him.”

Noe Carried it on the Ark                                                                                                                  ” It stood in the upper part of the ark.”

Moses Also had it in his Keeping                                                                                                      ” The cup was massive like a bell.  It looked as if it had been shaped by nature, not formed by art.  I have seen clear through it.  Jesus alone know of what it was made.”

The Consecration of Bread and Wine at the Last Supper into The True Body and Blood of Christ                                     “Again Jesus prayed and taught.  His words, glowing with fire and light, came forth from His mouth and entered into all the apostles, excepting Judas.  He took the plate with the morsels of bread ) I do not remember whether He had placed it on the chalice or not ) and said:

Take and eat.  This is My Body which is given for you”  

“While saying these words, he stretched forth His right hand over it, as if giving a blessing and as He did so a brilliant light emanated from Him. His words were luminous as also the Bread, which as a body of light, entered the mouth of the Apostles. It was as if Jesus Himself flowed into them.  I saw all of them penetrated with light, bathed in light.

Judas alone was in dark

Jesus presented the Bread first to Peter, then to John, and next made a sign to Judas, who was sitting diagonally from Him, to approach.  Thus Judas was the third to whom Jesus presented the Blessed Sacrament, but it seemed as if the word of the Lord turned back from the mouth of the traitor.  I was so terrified at the sight that I cannot describe my feelings.  Jesus said to Judas:  “What thou are about to do, do quickly.”  The Lord then administered the Blessed Sacrament to the rest of the Apostles, who came up two by two, each one holding for his neighbor a little, stiff cover with an ornamental edge that had lain over the chalice”  ( ?paten?)

Jesus Becomes Wholly Transfigured                                                                                 

“Jesus next raised the chalice by its two handles to a level with his face, and pronounced into it the words of consecration.”  (Anna Catherine does not give the words of consecration for the wine although it has obviously taken place)  While doing so, He was wholly transfigured and, as it were, transparent.  He was as if passing over into what He was giving.  He caused Peter and John to drink from the chalice while yet in His hands, and then He set it down.  With the little spoon, John removed some of the sacred Blood from the chalice to the small cups, which Peter handed to the Apostles who, two by two, drank from the same cup,  Judas also (of this I am not certain)”

She Sees Devils Around Judas                                                                                                          ” During the whole meal, I saw a little red monster with one foot like a bare bone sitting at Judas’ feet and often rising up to his heart, but when outside the door, I saw three devils pressing around him.  One entered into his mouth, one urged him on, and the third ran in front of him.  It was night.  They seemed to be lighting him as he hurried on like a madman.

I do not remember having seen the Lord Himself receive the Sacred Species.  I must have let that pass unnoticed.  When He administered His Body and blood to the Apostles, it appeared to me as if He emptied Himself, as if He poured Himself out in tender love.

It is inexpressible.

Neither did I see Melchisedech, ” (she had seen Melchisedech in her visions prior to this), “when sacrificing bread and wine, receive it himself.  It was given to me to know why priests partake of the Sacrifice, although Jesus did not.”

Why Priests Must Partake of the Sacrifice                                                                                    “Had angels been deputed to administer the Holy Eucharist, they would not receive it, but if priests did not partake of it, It would long since have been lost.”

” But if priests did not partake of It, It would long since have been lost.  It is by their participation that the Sacrament is Preserved.”

 

Thank God for our One, Holy, Catholic, and, Apostolic Church and Catholic Supernatural Church outside of which there is no salvation ….. 

Thank God for Approved Prophets and Approved Visions which strengthen our faith and inform us of what is to come and of things that have been ….

Thank God for Blessed Anna Catherine Emmerich, the stigmatic who suffered so …. and all the Stigmatics throughout the history of the Church who have helped us so ….

The Holy See and Cardinal Pell

Pope Francis signs a cricket bat of a Canterbury cricket team received from Australian George Cardinal Pell at the Vatican Oct. 29, 2015   By George Weigel

“Cardinal George Pell’s December 2018 conviction on charges of “historical abuse” was a travesty of justice, thanks in part to a public atmosphere of hysterical anti Catholicism.  It was a fetid climate that had a devastating impact on the possibility of his receiving a fair trial.”

(Here is a sample of the type of anti catholic journalism which preceeded the trial of Cardinal Pell in the halls of ‘Australian Justice’ … before we go on …  ma)

In an article by David Marr in ‘The Guardian’ of Australia we read first the Blaring Title:

 ‘Brutal and Dogmatic, George Pell Waged War on Sex – Even As He Abused Children’ 

Then we read on the rest of the account by David Marr:

“He was always there with a crisp, dogmatic grab.  Universal innocence?  “A dangerous myth”  Original sin? “Alive and flourishing”  Drugtaking?  “Wrong and sinful”  IVF for single mothers?  “We are on the verge of creating a whole new generation of stolen children.”  That one created a most satisfying uproar.

He accused his own Church of being “frightened to put forward the hard teachings of Christ” 

As an Archbishop in Melbourne and a Cardinal in Sydney, Pell poured his energies into COMBATTING contraception, homosexuality, genetic engineering, divorce, equal marriage and abortion.  

When a wreath was laid outside St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Melbourne in memory of gay students in Catholic schools driven to suicide, Pell’s disdain was absolute. ” I haven’t got good statistics on the reasons for those suicides, but, if they are connected with homosexuality, it is another good reason to be discouraging people from going in that direction.  Homosexual activity is a much greater health hazard than smoking..”

George Weigel article continues:

Cardinal Pell knew from hard personal experience how virulent the anti-Catholic atmosphere in Australia had become.  As a member of the College of Cardinals and a senior Vatican official, Pell enjoyed Vatican citizenship and held a Vatican diplomatic passport;  he could have stayed put, untouched by Australian authorities.  Yet he freely decided to submit himself to his country’s criminal justice system.  He knew he was innocent, he was determined to defend his honor and that of the Church;  and he believed in the rectitude of the Australian courts.

So he went home.

It is not unreasonable to suggest that the Australian justice system has thus far failed one of Australia’s most distinguished sons, who had put his trust in it.  The police went on a tawdry fishing expedition for something-on-Pell, “Who, one wonders set that in motion? And why?)

A preliminary hearing sent the subsequent charges to trial, although the hearing magistrate said that, were she a juror, she wouldn’t vote for conviction on several of the alleged crimes.  The first trial proved the Cardinal innocent, and the re-trial returned an irrational verdict unsupported by any evidence, corroborating or otherwise.  The media gag order placed on both trials, although likely intended to dampen the circus atmosphere surrounding the case, in fact relieved the prosecution of having to defend its weird and salacious charges in public.

So, as of early March, the Cardinal is in jail and he is in Solitary Solitary Confinement.

  1. He is Not permitted to say Mass in his cell … on the bizarre grounds that prisoners are not allowed to lead religious services in prisons in the State of Victoria
  2. Wine is not permitted in cells.

Given all this, it is not easy to understand why, the day after the conviction it was announced publicly, by the interim Vatican press spokesman, Alessandro Gisotti, a mantra which has become habitual in Vatican commentary on the Pell case:  the Holy See has maximun respect for the Australian judicial authorities.”

Why would the Holy See say this?

It is precisely the Australian judiciary (and the lynch-mob atmospherics in Melbourne and elsewhere) that is on trial today in the global court of public opinion.  There was no need for such gratuitous puffery.  Mr. Gisotti could have, and should have,  said that the Holy See awaits with interest and concern the results of the appeal process, and hopes that justice will be done. Period. Full stop.  Not flattery.

Above all, no hint of a suggestion that the Holy See believes that the Australian police and judicial authorities have done their job fairly, impartially, and respectably thus far.

Shortly after Mr. Gisotti’s comment it was announced that the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith was beginning its own canonical inquiry into the Pell case.  In theory , and one hopes, in practice, the CDF investigation can be helpful:  properly conducted, it will exonerate Cardinal Pell of the preposterous charges on which he was convicted, because there is zero evidence that the Cardinal abused two choirboys and ample evidence that the abuse could not have occurred in the circumstances in which it allegedly happened.  So justice can be done by the Holy See, whatever the ultimate outcome in Australia.

For the sake of an old friend, but also for the sake of Australia’s reputation in the world, I hope that the appeal process, which begins in early June, will vindicate Cardinal Pell – and the faith he has put in his countrymen and the Australian Judicial System.

The latter is and should be under the closest scrutiny by fair minded people.

The Holy See should take not …  and … therefore … should …  resist any further temptations …  to render a gauzy, and certainly premature, verdict on “the Australian Judicial Authorities”
