From the dogmatic Constitution on the Church of Second Vatican Council (Lumen Gentium , nn et 12) [source “Liturgy of the Hours”]
This is He that came by water and blood, Jesus Christ: not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit which testifies, that Christ is the truth. (1Jn5:6)
When His Son completed the work with which the Father had entrusted Him on earth, the Holy Spirit was sent on the day of Pentecost to sanctify the Church unceasingly, and thus enable believers to have access to the Father through Christ in the one Spirit. He is the Spirit of life. through him the Father gives life to men, dead because of sin, until he raises up their mortal bodies in Christ.
The Spirit dwells in the Church and in the hearts of the faithful as in a temple. he prays in them and bears witness in them to their adoption as sons. He leads the Church in all truth and gives it Unity in communion and in service . He endows it with different hierarchical and charismatic gifts, directs it by their means, and enriches it with its fruits.
By the power of the Gospel he enables the Church to grow young, perpetually renews it, and leads it to complete union with its source in the unity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
In this way the Church reveals itself as a people whose unity has its source in the unity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The whole company of the faithful, who have an anointing by the Holy Spirit, cannot err in faith. they manifest the distinctive characteristic of theirs in the supernatural instinct of faith ( sensus fidei) of the whole people when, from the bishops to the most ordinary lay person, among the faithful, they display a universal agreement on matters of faith and morals.
The instinct of faith is awakened and kept in being by the Spirit of truth. Through it the people of God hold indefectibly to the faith once delivered to the saints, penetrate it more deeply by means of right judgement and apply the guidance of the sacred teaching office: by faithful obedience to it they receive, not the word of men, but in truth the word of God.
Moreover, the Holy Spirit not only sanctifies and guides God’s people by the sacraments and the ministries, and enriches it with virtues, he also distributes special graces among the faithful of every state of life, assigning His gifts to each as he chooses. By means of these special gifts he equips them and makes them eager for various activities and responsibilities that benefit the Church in its renewal or its increase, in accordance with the text: “To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for a good purpose.”
These char-isms, the simpler and widespread as well as the most outstanding, should be accepted with a sense of gratitude and consolation, since in a very special way they answer and serve the needs of the Church. end Vatican doc. printed here!
“And on the last, and great day of the festivity, Jesus stood and cried, saying: If any man thirst, let him come to me, and drink. He that believe in me, as the scripture saith, Out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. Now this he said of the Spirit which they should receive, who believed in him: for as yet the Spirit was not given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.” (Jn7:37-39)

One of the most important of all the revelations of Fatima is the last great vision in 1929.
This vision was unknown to the world until a the golden jubilee of Fatima, was revealed by a Diocesan authorities. Previously, it had been made known to ONLY Pope Pius XII in a personal letter. In her words Lucia describes the vision:
Suddenly the whole chapel was illuminated by a supernatural light, and a cross of light appeared above the altar, reaching to the ceiling…….. I could see a large chalice and a large host suspended in the air, on which drops of blood were falling from the face of Jesus crucified and from the wound from His side these drops ran down on to the host and fell into the chalice……… Under the left arm of the cross, large letters ran down over the altar, forward these words: Graces and Mercy.“
I understood that it was the Mystery of the Holy Trinity which was shown to me, and I received the lights about this mystery which I am not permitted to reveal.
Our Lady then said to me: “the moment has come when God asks the Holy father (pope), in union with the Bishops of the world, to make the consecration of Russia to my Heart, promising to save it by this means.”
So City asks you?… do you share in the unity of the Holy Trinity, or are you Dead from sins separating you and / or in disobedience to the will of God? ” One bread, One body, one faith of all”?
Jesus prays for Unity: ( Jn17:1-26)
These things Jesus spoke, and lifting up his eyes to heaven, he said: Father, the hour is come, glorify thy Son, that thy Son may glorify thee. As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he may give eternal life to all whom thou hast given him. Now this is eternal life: That they may know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
I have manifested thy name to the men whom thou hast given me out of the world. Thine they were, and to me thou gave them; and they have kept thy word. Now they have known, that all things which thou hast given me, are from thee: Because the words which thou gave me, I have given to them; and they have received them, and have known in very deed that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them whom thou hast given me: because they are thine: And all my things are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
And now I am not in the world, and these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name whom thou has given me; that they may be one, as we also are. While I was with them, I kept them in thy name. Those whom thou gave me have I kept; and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition, that the scripture may be fulfilled. And now I come to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy filled in themselves. I have given them thy word, and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world; as I also am not of the world. I pray not that thou should take them out of the world, but that thou should keep them from evil.
They are not of the world, as I also am not of the world. Sanctify them in truth. Thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. And for them do I sanctify myself, that they also may be sanctified in truth. And not for them only do I pray, but for them also who through their word shall believe in me;
That they all may be one, as thou, Father, in me, and I in thee; that they also may be one in us; that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou hast given me, I have given to them; that they may be one, as we also are one: I in them, and thou in me; that they may be made perfect in one: and the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast also loved me. Father, I will that where I am, they also whom thou hast given me may be with me; that they may see my glory which thou hast given me, because thou hast loved me before the creation of the world. Just Father, the world hath not known thee; but I have known thee: and these have known that thou hast sent me. And I have made known thy name to them, and will make it known; that the love wherewith thou hast loved me, may be in them, and I in them.(Jn 17: 1-26) Unity prayers, the only Ecumenism the Vatican II Authorized, for the faithful.
Fatima Prayer: O most holy Trinity, Father , son, and Holy Ghost, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most precious Blood, Body, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the TABERNACLES of the World, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges,, and indifference by which He is offended. ‘By the infinite merits of the SACRED HEART of Jesus, and the immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg the conversion of poor sinners.’
[For example, if your hands are Not “consecrated, ordained holy hands” to hold the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity” of Jesus Christ, then DON’T DO IT!. And pray this prayer, that others stop also.]
