What was the purpose of Jesus Mission?
To reopen for us Heaven and reconcile Human Race with God.
He not only reconciles us with God but leaves us tool to make it present and real any time we ask for it- through Sacrament of reconciliation
This is why he says to Apostles:
“Receive the Holy Spirit.
Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them,
and whose sins you retain are retained.”
This is as big as His Resurrection.
First time in the history of the whole world God shares his Power of forgiveness with his people.
Instead of complain how difficult it is go to confession and why I need to do it before priest we should be jumping out of joy that God offers us his forgiveness in such simple way..
Through reconciliation of human race with God, we are able to walk with God as a Friends. To talk to him. To be in close relation with Him. What is so obvious for us, was just desire of many people through thousands of years
We are back in paradise- As Adam was able to walk with God and talk to him now we can do it too. If we want. If we pursue God’s friendship and presence in our lives
I have for you words, Jesus spoke to St Faustina about his perception of relation with people:
Our Lord said to Saint Faustina:
It is not necessary my child, to know much in order to please me much; it is enough that you love me fervently. Speak here to me then, as you would speak to your most intimate friend, to your mother, to your brother.
So, you want to ask me to do something for someone? Tell me his name. Is it your parents, your brothers, your friends? Tell me what you want me to do for them now. Ask much, very much: do not hesitate to ask. I love generous hearts who somehow can come to forget themselves to look after the needs of others. Speak sincerely to me then, of the poor you would console, of the sick you see suffering, of the strayed you yearn to see return to the right path, of those absent friends you want at your side again. Say at least one word for each, the ardent word of a friend. Remind me that I have promised to listen to every petition that arises from the heart, and is not a prayer for those whom your heart especially loves such a pray?
And for you: do you need a particular favor? Make a list, as it were, of your needs, and come and read it in my presence.
Tell me frankly that you are prone to anger, that you love sensuality and pleasure, that you are perhaps proud, variable, negligent . . . Ask me to come to the help of those efforts, many or few, which you undertake to free yourself from these faults.
Do not be ashamed, poor soul; there are in Heaven so many saints who had these same defects; but they prayed humbly, and little by little they saw themselves freed from them.
Do not hesitate to ask Me for spiritual and material goods; for health, memory, success in your work, enterprises and studies; all these I can give and I do give — as long as they do not hinder, but rather assist your sanctification.
Unceasingly recite this chaplet that I have taught you. Whoever will recite it will receive great mercy at the hour of death … Priest will recommend it to sinners as their last hope of salvation. Even the most hardened sinner, if he recites this chaplet even once, will receive grace from My infinite mercy (687) I want to give unimaginable graces to those who trust in My mercy (687).
