3rd Millennium Spirituality

(Great Jubilee 2000)

How we were amazed to see that the calling of the Great Jubilee and 3rd Millennium has a prophetic mission which we now see already written in the Neuclock. We were amazed to find and to read this document for the first time on 5/13/24, shortly after Pope Francis I declared Jubilee Year for 2025. Such proclamation led to a review of previous jubilees and the Great Jubilee of the Year 2000 declared by Pope John Paul II came up. Interesting part of it is that it is prophetic and emphasized bringing the universe to Christ-centeredness, ““The Mystery of the Incarnation… Given in Rome, at Saint Peter’s, on 29 November, the First Sunday of Advent, in the year of our Lord 1998, the twenty-first of my Pontificate.” We contemplated also the symbolic “21” as we have published earlier that the Universal Calendar was published in 2021 (though received in 2012.)

Incarnationis Mysterium

BULL OF INDICTION
OF THE GREAT JUBILEE
OF THE YEAR 2000


JOHN PAUL BISHOP
SERVANT OF THE SERVANTS OF GOD
TO ALL THE FAITHFUL
JOURNEYING TOWARDS
THE THIRD MILLENNIUM
HEALTH AND THE APOSTOLIC BLESSING

1. Contemplating the mystery of the Incarnation of the Son of God, the Church prepares to cross the threshold of the Third Millennium. Never more than at this time do we feel the need to make our own the Apostle’s hymn of praise and thanksgiving: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world that we should be holy and blameless before him. He destined us in love to be his sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will… For he has made known to us in all wisdom and insight the mystery of his will, according to his purpose which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fulness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth” (Eph1:3-5, 9-10).

These words clearly indicate that in Jesus Christ the history of salvation finds its culmination and ultimate meaning. In him, we have all received “grace upon grace” (Jn 1:16), having been reconciled with the Father (cf. Rom 5:10; 2 Cor 5:18).

The birth of Jesus at Bethlehem is not an event which can be consigned to the past. The whole of human history in fact stands in reference to him: our own time and the future of the world are illumined by his presence. He is “the Living One” (Rev 1:18), “who is, who was and who is to come” (Rev 1:4). Before him every knee must bend, in the heavens, on earth and under the earth, and every tongue proclaim that he is Lord (cf. Phil 2:10-11). In the encounter with Christ, every man discovers the mystery of his own life.[1]

Jesus is the genuine newness which surpasses all human expectations and such he remains for ever, from age to age. The Incarnation of the Son of God and the salvation which he has accomplished by his Death and Resurrection are therefore the true criterion for evaluating all that happens in time and every effort to make life more human…

The Great Jubilee of the Year 2000 is almost upon us. Ever since my first Encyclical Letter Redemptor Hominis, I have looked towards this occasion with the sole purpose of preparing everyone to be docile to the working of the Spirit.[2]) The event will be celebrated simultaneously in Rome and in all the particular Churches around the world, and it will have, as it were, two centres: on the one hand, the City where Providence chose to place the See of the Successor of Peter, and on the other hand, the Holy Land, where the Son of God was born as man, taking our flesh from a Virgin whose name was Mary (cf. Lk 1:27). With equal dignity and significance, therefore, the Jubilee will be celebrated not only in Rome but also in the Land which is rightly called “Holy” because it was there that Jesus was born and died. That Land, in which the first Christian community appeared, is the place where God revealed himself to humanity. It is the Promised Land which has so marked the history of the Jewish People, and is revered by the followers of Islam as well. May the Jubilee serve to advance mutual dialogue until the day when all of us together — Jews, Christians and Moslems — will exchange the greeting of peace in Jerusalem.[3]

 

The coming of the Third Millennium prompts the Christian community to lift its eyes of faith to embrace new horizons in proclaiming the Kingdom of God. It is imperative therefore at this special time to return more faithfully than ever to the teaching of the Second Vatican Council, which shed new light upon the missionary task of the Church in view of the demands of evangelization today. At the Council, the Church became more deeply conscious both of the mystery which she herself is and of the apostolic mission entrusted to her by the Lord. This awareness commits the community of believers to live in the world knowing that they must be “the leaven and, as it were, the soul of human society, destined to be renewed in Christ and transformed into the family of God”.[4] In order to meet this commitment effectively, the Church must persevere in unity and grow in the life of communion.[5] The imminent approach of the Jubilee offers a powerful stimulus in this direction.

The journey of believers towards the Third Millennium is in no way weighed down by the weariness which the burden of two thousand years of history could bring with it. Rather, Christians feel invigorated, in the knowledge that they bring to the world the true light, Christ the Lord. Proclaiming Jesus of Nazareth, true God and perfect Man, the Church opens to all people the prospect of being “divinized” and thus of becoming more human.[6] This is the one path which can lead the world to discover its lofty calling and to achieve it fully in the salvation wrought by God.

Jesus reveals the face of God the Father “compassionate and merciful” (Jas 5:11), and with the sending of the Holy Spirit he makes known the mystery of love which is the Trinity. It is the Spirit of Christ who is at work in the Church and in history: we must listen to him in order to recognize the signs of the new times and to make the expectation of the glorified Lord’s return ever more vibrant in the hearts of the faithful. The Holy Year must therefore be one unceasing hymn of praise to the Trinity, the Most High God. At this point, the poetic words of Saint Gregory of Nazianzus, the Theologian, come to our aid:

“Glory to God the Father
and to the Son, King of the universe.
Glory to the Spirit,
worthy of praise and all holy.
The Trinity is one God
who created and filled all things:
the heavens with heavenly beings,
the earth with creatures of earth,
the sea, the rivers and springs
with creatures of the waters,
giving life to all things by his Spirit,
that all creatures
might sing the praises of their wise Creator,
who alone gives life and sustains
all life in being.
Above all others, let the creature who reasons
celebrate him always
as the great King and good Father”.[9]

May this hymn to the Trinity for the Incarnation of the Son rise with one voice from all who have been baptized and share the same faith in the Lord Jesus very Jubilee Year is like an invitation to a wedding feast. From the different Churches and Ecclesial Communities throughout the world, let us all hasten to the feast now being prepared; let us bring with us everything that already unites us and, by fixing our gaze on Christ alone, let us grow in the unity which is the fruit of the Spirit. The present task of the Bishop of Rome, as the Successor of Peter, is to make the invitation to the Jubilee celebration all the more insistent, in order that the two thousandth anniversary of the central mystery of the Christian faith may be experienced as a journey of reconciliation and a sign of true hope for all who look to Christ and to his Church, the sacrament “of intimate union with God and the unity of the entire human race”.[1

I therefore decree that the Great Jubilee of the Year 2000 will begin on Christmas Eve 1999… May Christmas 1999 be for everyone a feast filled with light, the prelude to an especially deep experience of grace and divine mercy, which will continue until the closing of the Jubilee Year on the day of the Epiphany of Our Lord Jesus Christ, 6 January 2001. Let all the faithful welcome the invitation of the angels who ceaselessly proclaim: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men with whom he is pleased” (Lk 2:14). Thus the Christmas season will be the pulsing heart of the Holy Year, bringing to the life of the Church an infusion of the copious gifts of the Spirit for a new evangelization… The history of the Church is the living account of an unfinished pilgrimage…  He takes us with him in order that we may weave with him the white robe of the new humanity, the robe of bright linen which clothes the Bride of Christ…

  1. The joy of the Jubilee would not be complete if our gaze did not turn to her who in full obedience to the Father gave birth to the Son of God in the flesh for our sake. For Mary «the time to give birth» came to pass in Bethlehem (Lk2:6), and filled with the Spirit she brought forth the First-Born of the new creation. Called to be the Mother of God, from the day of the virginal conception Mary lived the fulness of her motherhood, crowning it on Calvary at the foot of the Cross. There, by the wondrous gift of Christ, she also became the Mother of the Church, and showed to everyone the way that leads to the Son.

COMMENTARY

MAJOR PURPOSE OF UNIVERSAL CALENDAR (Christfied universe. A universe divinized, everything consecrated, inserted in the Lord Jesus and manifesting the Messiah.) Kindly read this important prophetic document above and see how the major points discussed therein manifest in what you will read in the citations below. In the previous years before reading this document on Great Jubilee Year of 2000 on this day 5/13/24, we had published in the Golden Era of the Messiah, (3rd Millennium Spirituality,)

The Divine Will: Christ is the Divine Will (Christ has become the Personification of the New Era) In this Christ the King Calendar Reset, each day has a face of the true God, manifested in a Mystery of Christ the King through Whom God, the Maker of the seven days, has revealed Himself… (Citing St Eudes, we clarified) JESUS CHRIST SHOULD BE LIVING IN US AND THAT WE SHOULD LIVE ONLY IN HIM…THAT OUR LIFE SHOULD BE A CONTINUATION AND EXPRESSION OF HIS LIFE. IN FACT, WE HAVE ‘NO RIGHT’ TO LIVE ANY OTHER LIFE ON EARTH BUT HIS. IN SHORT, THE BAPTIZED CHRISTIAN SHOULD AIM FOR NOTHING SHORT OF BEING “OTHER JESUS CHRISTS ON EARTH.” THIS BASIC TRUTH OF CHRSITIANITY REFLECTS THE WILL OF JESUS, WHOSE UNION TO US MAKES SUCH AS EXISTENCE POSSIBLE… St. John Eudes stipulates that this divinized vision grants a twofold knowledge: we know the infinite worth of God, and we are aware keenly of the world’s smoky “vanity” and of our own “nothingness, sin, and abomination”…John Eudes, in particular shows himself to be quite ahead of his time, anticipating by three centuries the Second Vatican Council teaching on the common priesthood of all the baptized, and on the active participation of the laity in the offering of the Eucharistic sacrifice. Eudes articulates that the laity are not simply to attend Mass in order “to assist or see” Rather, the Christian worshipper at Mass performs an action – “the most important thing you have to do in the world” (Called to be the Children of God Chapter 8.)  Scholars have recently written: “Berulle takes the daring position that, because divinity and humanity co-exist in the Word, all the states of the interior of Jesus’ human life have been divinized and made available to those who conform themselves to Him, thus enabling humankind, to be divinized. The process of conformity is explicitly Pauline and must take place through a profound adherence of the will to the divine Will” Benet of Canfield’s Rule of Perfection (1593) defined the spiritual life with a maxim: THE WILL OF GOD IS GOD HIMSELF (JESUS CHRIST, my emphasis). Berulle was consistent with this tradition. According to him, in fact, the possession of God happens through knowledge of His Will, and knowledge of the divine will is carried out in the renunciation of self will. Henceforth, the incarnation that “divine invention” whereby God has mysteriously joined the created and the uncreated, reveals the ultimate meaning of such renunciation…it is the logic of a greater intimacy between Creator and creature” (Daniel O’Connor, The Crown of Sanctity)

The person of Jesus Christ will manifest in billions of persons and all in the world through Christ the King Calendar as we put on this garment of the new era, the Tilma of Guadalupe (which we described as the wedding garment for the new era.) We have described Christ the King calendar as the Tilma of Our Lady of Guadalupe (please see Divine Cycle for the detailed explanation) This garment (Christ  the King Calendar) unveils Christ for all persons and makes all persons and cultures one Jesus-Culture, universal conversion to Christ, the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, a new civilization of love, peace, and light (the 3rd millennium new evangelization). In explaining Christ the King calendar, we had published, “By living daily   on the mysteries of Christ each of the faithful will gradually become a facsimile of Christ…It is no longer one Jesus from Nazareth walking in the streets of Judea and Jerusalem, but billions of Christ-like people spread all over the universe.” This resonates with the words of St. John Paul II at the canonization of St. Hannibal di Francia, Luisa’s extraordinary confessor and publisher, “God Himself had provided to bring about that new and divine holiness with which the Holy Spirit wishes to enrich Christians at the dawn of the third millennium, in order to make Christ the heart of the world” (God’s Foot is on the World). So Jesus will fill the earth and be seen in all persons.

Furthermore, we wrote,

When humans understand their responsibility towards God, they can then properly understand their relationship with each other, and their responsibility towards other things in the universe, nature. Lack of the sense of the divine makes human beings to abuse nature. Part of the responsibility assigned to human beings after creation is “Increase and subdue the earth.” God has made humans stewards over creation. This sense of stewardship will be propagated in the Life in Christ horarium, Christ the King Calendar. Time should be lived from the point of view of the divine; time will be continuous unfolding of Creation, Incarnation, Resurrection of  Jesus Christ, and the Parousia. Every moment has a divine character, and through       a systematic Jesus-week-cycle schedule, CMD members (and entire humanity) will be immersed in this rhythmic union. Climate change and other current issues will be impacted (regenerated)…in the sense of full cycle of Creation and Redemption in Christ. Christ is the dawn and source of new creation, “for in him were all things created, in  the heavens and upon the earth, things visible and things invisible” (Col.1:16) He revealed Himself in a continuous connected series of mysteries, which will be demonstrated in a week creation-redemption-cycle; just as Creation began, unfolded and culminated in a week-cycle; Redemption of Creation in Christ will be lived out according to the full span of creation-cycle. Right from the birth of Christ, Creation has been reconfigured to Christ, “For in him we live, and move, and have our being…” (Acts 17:28). It makes sense, then, to count everything that happened before His birth as – Before Christ (BC) – and everything that comes from His birth as – Anno Domini (AD). He is the yardstick to measure time, and the CMD would make Him the yardstick of daily life (Reading this on 5/13/24 prompted our thoughts to what was already published, “The Incarnation of the Son of God and the salvation which he has accomplished by his Death and Resurrection are therefore the true criterion for evaluating all that happens in time and every effort to make life more human” (From the words of St John Paul II declaring the Great Jubilee, see above.)

(Citation continues) There is a reason behind bringing the full span of Creation and redemption together in this 21st century whereby faith in the creation of the universe has dwindled and Life in Christ has been banished in many schools and nations, largely masterminded by the anti-Christ… (this is) an apostolate of New Evangelization towards re-Christification of humanity, intensified consciousness of Divine Providence in the ordinary activities, and sanctification of the cosmos. CMD attends to the need for the transformation of the entire universe through Christ through the Jesus-week-cycle lifestyle, reconciling God and all humanity in Christ; reconciling Creation to God the Creator, all through Christ. St. Paul was moved   by the same passion to transform the entire cosmos in Jesus Christ, “For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them and was raised again… Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ” (2 Cor.5:14f)

 

The movement of the world is towards “Christologization,” a sanctification of all things in Christ. Christologization of the universe is a way of healing the universe wounded by sin and godlessness. It is when everything is touched by Christ that they will regain their real nature and purpose of existence. Von Balthazar rightly observes that for theology to be valid today, it must be eschatologized; Human destiny is meaningful only when it is seen from the perspective of intelligibility, that is, from the final destiny of humanity, for which the universe is ordained. In Christologization of the universe, everything is inserted into the life of Christ; sanctification of the universe and re-grounding of everything in Christ is a method of New Evangelization. CMD does not want to demonstrate this reality only in theological concepts, but to work towards its practical realization as the days and events of the day become concentered on the Person of Christ. When life is centered on Christ, current worldly state-worship (communism) and man-worship (individualism) will give way to the King of all cultures and all hearts[1]… the transformation of the traditional cosmic week into the Lord’s Week is one implication of the New Pentecost in Christianizing the entire universe.

Christian conversion is more than asking persons to accept Jesus in their lives, but leading persons to daily communion with Jesus Christ… We understand that Jesus did not only redeem human beings, but all creation groaned and has been sanctified by the redemption in Christ. With the redemption of Christ, everything has been recreated and re-configured to Christ, including time, season, and all. The cycle of creation is re-configured to Christ and finds its fulfilment in Christ. Since Christ did not come to abolish Creation but to fulfil it, CMD lives a life that reconciles redemption within the

[1] The whole purpose of religion (religare) is to unite oneself to God. In this millennium era we have come to the crescendo of religion (full stature of Christianity), see the growth of religion in chapter 6 of God’s Foot is on the world. Religion comes from the root word meaning, ” Old French relier “assemble, put together; fasten, fasten again, attach, rally, oblige,” from Latin religare “fasten, bind fast,” from re-, here perhaps an intensive prefix (see re-), + ligare “to bind” (from PIE root *leig- “to tie, bind”)” This calendar of Christ the King binds oneself to God and brings the crown of sanctity and divinization that describes life in the new era of peace and love.

creation cycle. The major mysteries of Christ’s life are inserted within the seven- days of original creation-cycle (see more explanations in God’s Foot is on the World, on how this Divine Will for Christ the King Era is assimilated in the liturgical cycle.)

“The center of this new civilization is going to be Christ, the Victor over the anti-Christ, the Son of God, Who leads the universe back to the Eternal Father in obedience”. “It will at length be possible that our many wounds be healed and all justice spring forth again with the hope of restored authority; that the splendors of peace be renewed, and the swords and arms drop from the hand and when all men shall acknowledge the empire of Christ and willingly obey His word, and every tongue shall confess that the Lord Jesus is in the Glory of the Father” (POPE LEO XIII, Consecration to the Sacred Heart, May 1899 – 100 years before the call to New Pentecost in 1999). Morality and lifestyles that are largely influenced now by self-will, will be redirected by seeking the Divine Will. The ‘Christification’ process may know no bounds; it will extend to infinite implementations as many as there are initiatives. One will center all decisions and desires around Christ to glorify him in every way” (CMD’s Mission, God’s Foot is on the World)

The title ‘Mother of God’ has always implied the Bride of the Bridegroom. She represents the Church. She is the first to put on Christ and leads all who want to put on Christ. She has been vested with and for Christ. Each of us are invited to the banquet of the Bride and the Bridegroom. We need the proper garment for this banquet. She has been given the custody of it as it pleased Almighty God, the Most Holy Trinity, to choose her for this role. Christ was the garment of her earthly life and she has given the garment of Christ to all of us through the new Calendar, the Tilma of life in Christ the King. So, the garment is life in Christ, the Bridegroom. It is ceaseless daily living in Christ Mysteries as He, the Bridegroom, tabernacles in the Bride (the Church and each soul) in a special manifest way in this era of ceaseless light and peace.

In the same book, we traced the history of the inspiration of the Great Universal Calendar “.By providence I started seminary education in the Seminary of Sons of the Immaculate Heart then (Previously in this book, I have stated the event that occurred in this seminary in 1999 that was the first stage of the foundation  of CMD, a new Pentecost.”
