                   "How did you community start?" "and why?"…  

 

 

From the V.V. Magnifying Glass ( written in France in the year 2004… ) :

 

   [We gave an answer to this question, that our new community was asked many, many times, Along with a whole lot of questions, which we were asked many, many times. This answer was given Also through a letter that we have thought through as a community, then it was transcribed by a spiritual friend, and now revised by some new, innovative explanations in brackets. This letter started at the heart as follows] :

 

 

  

 

FV.JPG    FRIAR VOLANTINO

 

  

"Everything started with this 1st brother (Sicilian) whom the Lord called when he was 25 years of age. In the beginning, he wanted to become a Franciscan Friar. He understood that this was a good thing but not his calling, he prayed and searched until he found that divine light which illuminated him, showing him that God's plan was to begin a new community. Then, strong in the certainty that it is the will of God, with the grace of God, he courageously left everything (10 workers, a big body building gym and a disco pub of 1500 associates, soon to be a night club, etc.) and set off on his own, going against the flow in order to act on God's will.

 

    [Now guiding the consecrated V.V.’s and the Marian Groups of Prayer ADP-VV spread all over Italy and now also in different countries... And after having attained two degrees in Theology (including a Licentiate in Fundamental Theology) at the Pontifical Lateran University, he was ordained a transitional deacon, in sight of the coming priesthood…]

 

 

  

 

 

 

FA.JPG  FRIAR ANTONIO

 

   Then comes the time of the 2nd member (Australian, called when he was 24 years old). Graduate in visual communication (illustration) for children. Not believing in God and no longer understanding the true sense of life, he met the community while they were asking for alms in Catania, igniting in him a new hope that within a short time for him, was transformed into certainty!  He Returned to Australia and commenced life in a seminary of that continent. But after one year, he burst out saying, “It’s good that here we study the Word of God and the lives of the saints, yet it is also lived by my little brothers -V.V… even more, ” [- he said in a moment of emphasis –when singing the Magnificat on an Australian mountain...] Therefore, he returned –in a hurry– to Italy, and now has already finished his 3 and a half years of formation or rather 6 months of experience, 1 year of trial and 2 years of novitiate (the spiritual itinerary that is done by us), before being confirmed in red pen into the book of community life… And not only this but now, after having obtained the philosophical-theological studies, he was ordained a priest of the Latin Rite and exercises his ministry in the U.S. with the appointment of "Chaplain of the office of Evangelization" ...  

 

 

 

 

  SISTER LETIZIA

 

     Then comes the time of the 3rd member - a Sicilian sister (who seems to be a young lady of only 20 years), with more than one diploma, among which is one in Theology. She met the second brother together with a brother in experience. She was struck as if by lightning by the encounter, realizing instantly that the encounter was the answer to her many prayers… In short, if we can possibly say so, humble and obedient just like Mary! ...  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FG.JPG  FRIAR GIUSEPPE (JOSEPH)

 

    Then comes the time of the 4th member, (who is also Sicilian). almost maestro of music, speeding not only like a gazelle but also in the image of his (heavenly) Maestro… indeed meeting the first brother became struck like lightning by the brother’s luminous simplicity and instantly left everything including his worldly studies to undertake those that are divine, so to become a true Maestro in the master of all arts and a priest in the manner of Melchizedek

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SE.JPG   SISTER EFFATA

 

    Then comes the time of the 5th member, who is a sister from Germany (called at age 24) Ex- student in graphic arts and skilled in communicating in more than 4 languages. When she met some of the brothers she understood that it is not every day one gets to meet people who strive to live the gospel so closely. After a few months, with an example of fortitude, she left everything. Despite having a prosthetic leg, she came by bike to Sicily, and putting the dots on the i’s, in a short time she came from being a Protestant Evangelical Christian to becoming Catholic and then a Little Nun. Now also she like the Australian friar, has already completed the 3 and a half years of formation V.V., or rather 6 months of experience, 1 year of trial and 2 years of novitiate, (the spiritual itinerary that is done by us) before being confirmed in red pen, into the book of community life…

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 FN.JPG  FRIAR NATANAELE (Nathaniel)

 

       Then comes the time of the 7th member, French and 20 years of age at the time of his calling. He received his diploma in a French school. He was often ill, but for us and from now on, not anymore! This is a proof that is concretely graspable! Even if he was ill in the past, Jesus has come for the ill who want to be healed to give joy to the angels of heaven and light to the 99 upright that have no need of conversion, which is the true healing!...
    Brilliant for his historical and linguistic memory and also in his seminary grades, almost all 100… And according to some – who work for Jesus – his mind was not functional… If it was not, they would have to change the scale of grades to over 100… It’s really all the truer what Jesus says also in regards to this… (Cf. Matt 5:5-16) …
 

  

 

  

 

 

 

  

 

FM.JPG  FRIAR MICHAEL

 

       Then here as well, comes the time of the 8th member, a pleasant little brother from Naples of 28 years, One beautiful day, all happy and exultant with joy, he said to the initiator of the community, “Do you know what my new (religious) name is?” and without Friar Michael yet having revealed it to anyone, he heard this reply, “Michael is your name...” And he (exclaiming with a Neapolitan accent) said, “But wha did ya do to knoma name?” …The initiator answered, “It’s a mystery…” Yes, it’s all a mystery of joy and awe, that only the babies of the Lord can see and taste…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

FP.JPG   FRIAR PICCHIGNITO

 

     Then comes the time of the 9th member, a Portuguese brother called at 27 years of age, who was all tied up with the love of satanic music where he screamed at the top of his voice on the “metallic” stages… which were full of death… Then instead, he began his conversion, being taken by an excessive love to scream at the top of his voice and above all dance with the sword drawn out, all the music of the gospel upon the stage of the cross, filled with so much life and blessed immortality. But not finding what he was looking for, he got to the point of abandoning the idea of living all the gospel as he intended as St. Francis of Assisi did, who lived without money. Then, meeting some of the brothers, he powerfully jumped up to this stupendous encounter, a little like St. Elizabeth at the encounter with Mary… Given that without even doing it on purpose, the brothers, along with the initiator, met him at the shrine of Fatima which you could almost say was his house… And also, as Friar Picchignito is a professor of music, he said one day that the music that he found in this community is – in respect to all other music – “Another thing all together”…!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SV.JPG   SISTER VERONICA

 

     Then comes the time of the 10th member, another Calabrian sister, called here at 21 years of age. Tremendous! Humanly and spirituality, as I now here tell you in one instance: her first steady boyfriend has been Jesus. Going back even further, in a Calabrian newspaper they had defined her as among the great minds of Cosenza with a grade of more than 100 in Classics. Once, two young men who observed her as she walked by, said to her, “Hey beauty,” … She turned back and - in a certain way - gently but firmly replied to them like this, “Oh! What did you say? Haven’t they ever told you that it’s dangerous to flirt with a girl who’s already taken? Now, if that is dangerous, I tell you how much more risky would it be to flirt with the girlfriend of the most beautiful man among the children of men (Cf. Ps 45:2-5)? Or rather the girlfriend of the Son of God? Tremendous in his deeds and majestic in holiness? Slow to anger and rich in grace (Cf. Ps 145:8), to those who repent!” ….

      --- Great in love (Cf. Ps 103:8). --- The Lord, so great in love and so in love with this poor and most beautiful sister, that she almost seems to be the Virgin Mary. Even so, every time she prays – even also for a candle – it’s immediately found among one who’s hands are in prayer. This is to remind us better that it only be in the consummation of the candle of our young lives for Him and for the others that we can possibly give light to many... For if the candle does not consume of itself, it can never give light to anyone and sooner or later will break. Just as the two distracted and very, very much at risk young men with their shameless discussion if it hadn’t been for the Lord Who made certain nuns to the benefit of many who are without shame...

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    SISTER STELLA ( which means “star” in Italian )

 

    Then comes the time of the 12th member, another very beautiful Calabrese. Called here at 23 years of age, from the Diocese of Locri-Gerace. Very young and beautiful, who seems to be a brilliant star … / she’s called like so and always shines, all week on end … / Before, she did social studies, so to help many children but she was not able to help them get to heaven … Now she studies Heavenly Science, and she also clothes herself with the virtue of her divine Mother… and like so with this new heavenly mantle, many spiritual children can then be dressed… to help them in a certain way fly, like so she can save them in Christ …, from the prolonged or eternal fall where many “chickens” will be burnt… such a thing that she’s given her life to God / and with lots of love that burns in her heart… / because the Door that she’s taken is narrow, for in which she wants to enter into the Heavenly delights of Christ / so that the door totally be opened for her, if she will practice the Will of the Father up to the end ( this paragraph has a rhyme in the original language of Italian that does not make full sense in its English translation) 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

     SISTER COMET

 

      Then, be the time of the 13th member, and that is, the little sister Comet, called here at 30 years of age, from Fiumefreddo, province of Catania. With a degree in the Academy of Beautiful Art, having met she’d met Sr. Victoria ( in the image of her future victory ) she applied herself more seriously in prayer, up until where the Lord let her experience in her life a page already written in a “sacred document” : "like a little lost sheep, who - before the encounter – in the hope of finding the sheepfold of love, after having crossed a tiring and dangerous walk, amongst paths, books and characters, she finally finds the only Way of exit in the book of the Gospel, and uprightly crossing and crossing it uprightly in it’s reading, in the material reality, she encounters a mysterious personality, and comparing what she is reading with what he in parallel is living, there, her heart automatically flares up with an immortal hope; and she recognises in him “the Good Shepherd” who with the right words, wakes her up from the sleep of death and distraction, and continuing to walk speedily along the Way of upright intention, he leads her to the basis of the fold, and with the “keys of the Truth” opens for her… (Sac. Pas. pg. 65), as done with her friend Stella, and it couldn’t have been diverse, being that she be called Comet or rather a trail of immortal light that points to (together with her friend Stella) He who’s the Door of the sheep (cf. Jn 10,9), Way, Truth and Eternal Life (cf. Jn 14,6)... with her own works of beauty and youth given to the Lord.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    SISTER SCINTILLA (Which means “spark” in Italian)

 

  Then, be the time of the 14th member from Lazio, who entered when she only just turned 18 years of age, a true “spark” of the Lord, called here just turning 18… The Good God showed her the “steps” of whom she had to follow if she wanted to imitate the life of Jesus at 100% and to become Great in the Kingdom of Heaven (cf. Mt 5,19b) !!!... and if the Lord gave her a name so fiery, it’s because Jesus brought fire to this earth (Lk 12,49) and now she with Christ, can ignite those dying out flames of many souls with the Divine Love for all Eternity and like so to pass through that narrow door (Cf. Lk 13,24) that the Lord had already clearly indicated them !!..  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    

      Therefore this more or less is the number of the people up unto the today…,, not to mention the very many in passing experiences not here named, for tomorrow let’s leave up to God, because we could be as more than thousands upon thousands or on the other hand only 3 !, ( Cf. Eccl 16, 1-3…) as in fact the Lord said to Saint Francis of Assisi:

<< And therefore, I tell you that from now on, you don’t have to stress yourself, but… do well what ever you do, continue completing your work. I have founded this family of Friars in an eternal love. [Amen!]…

    Know that the love I have for it be so great, that if certain Friars happen to return to the vomit ( of their will – F.S. 151 ) and happen to die out of the order, I will send another who will take the crown from the place of the renegade ; and if maybe they not yet be born, I will have them born. And so that you know how ardently I love the ideals and the order of the Friars, up until there not remain but tree Friars : it will always be my order, and I will never abandon it in all eternity ! ( F.S. 1777 ) . Amen !

 

                                                                  And so on amongst the Dioceses of this world…

 

 

Here, if it may be of use to you,

Be prolonged our curriculum of essential replies, to according to the needs…

 

<< Why do you wear a habit similar to the “ Franciscans ” without being  Franciscan? >>. [ And continuing with the same letter, here another reply to this other question ] :  << Immediately answering you, I will tell you that you’ve probably not payed much attention to why we carry the mantle, but under the habit we wear the Scapular of the Carmel to which the Franciscan Tau is pinneded, these symbols that continually call us to the sincere alliance with the life of the first Franciscans and Carmelites; this to underline the doubley contemplative and active spirituality that the Lord has wanted to found in one new community order ( given that Jesus was be it contemplative but also active… ) . This clearly said, I desire to now bring you to the origins of the sense of the habit that many call sackcloth, but that it be more precisely a “sack,” yes in truth a real sack as that we wear as an exterior sign, to testify - eloquently also silently, that the Lord has done many Miracles in our life for our conversion, as in fact the Lord says : << If the Miracles done among you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have converted long ago, dressing the sackcloth >> (Lk 10, 13). It is this sack that the first brothers and sisters wore on the first day when with out being done on purpose, this same Evangelical pass was read at the Holy Mass that was celebrated on the occasion of our vestment. It’s this sack however, that humiliates our existence as Jesus humiliated his on the wood of the Cross ; and if also we like Him have thrown our life ( into a “sack” as Him on the “ Cross,” ) it’s ( also ) because God has wanted that shown to so many with the facts, that we firmly believe in what we profess, and I repeat, if God has wanted that we throw our ( young ) lives inside this “ sack ” that continually humiliates our existence, it’s to make many reflect that here, whether we like it or not are only in passage, like this inviting many to gamble to the maximum this “ test ” that comes only one time in all eternity, to have the maximum for Eternity. For the rest, when you asked us ( always in the 5th question ) : Why have you wanted to found a new order when already of St. Francis there are so many ?, I have already answered you when I have told you that we neither must do this, nor that other, but exclusively the Will of He who has sent us to complete His work with the Church, for the Church and in the Catholic Church, the only Way of full salvation ref ( Cf. CCC 868 ).   

    Yes my dear little sister and little brother, really for this motive, just as that humble Christ of which it’s written : << Just as Christ has loved the Church and gave himself for Her at the aim of taking the Church to Him self all Glorious and without stain >> ( Cf. Eph 5, 25 - 27 ) so we also from simple Christians ( who be ) Imitators of Christ… in the Name of the Lord want to make all beautiful and Glorious our Holy Mother Church, in a way that many more souls become all the more attracted to Her and accordingly be saved ! And continuing… << What is your report with the ( Catholic ) Church ? >>. [ And also here the letter continuous saying ] : << in regards then... “ to the report with the Church ”…, thanks to God some steps we have already taken [now then being in 2007 much more, it is enough to have a look at our Official Curriculum V.V. ]; the first amongst the most beautiful: - that of delivering the vows of the first brothers and sisters - of “ Obedience, Poverty and Chastity “ to a Bishop of Rome…, during a Holy Mass celebrated in St. John of Lateran ( which be the first Parish in the world ) etc. etc… .

    Ah, speaking of our report at the internal of the Church, read the prologue and our internal Ruling V.V.  that already, to such regards says very well all ! >> Amen !   

 

      All by Grace of God, for the Salvation of souls and above all for the Major Glory of God that in the Holy perseverance one day will return to us !  ( Cf. Heb 10, 35; Mt 25, 28…).

Amen !
