THE PURPOSE OF THE CENACLE
A Preparation for the Second Pentecost
"My Immaculate Heart is glorified by you
when you multiply everywhere
cenacles of prayer made with me."
(427k, June 23, 1990)
"Multiply in every part of the world, the cenacles of
prayer which I have asked of you, like torches lit in the night, like sure
points of reference, like shelters needed and sought for."
(417k, Jan. 1, 1990)
Why does Our Lady urge the formation of cenacles?
In her messages, Our Lady insistently calls upon priests, religious and faithful
to gather together with her in fervent prayer and fraternal love, in authentic
cenacles as when the first apostles gathered with her in the Upper Room in
Jerusalem awaiting the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Why this insistence? What
is most important in the world and in the Church today is the preparation for
the Second Pentecost through the triumph of her Immaculate Heart. To draw down
upon us this gift of the Holy Spirit, we must enter with her into the cenacle.
Our Lady invites us to enter into the cenacle of her Immaculate Heart by means
of our consecration. In the cenacle of her Heart she will nourish, form, and
help us to grow in perfect consecration to her. She calls us to form cenacles
together with her and to multiply and spread them everywhere, so that the Divine
Spirit of Love may pass through the golden door of her Immaculate Heart and thus
prepare humanity for a new era of grace and holiness.
(cf. 226j, June 7, 1981)
"Just as in the Cenacle of Jerusalem the Apostles, reunited with me in prayer,
prepared for the moment of the first Pentecost, so also, in the cenacle of my
Immaculate Heart - and consequently in the cenacles where you are gathered in
prayer - you apostles of these last times can, with your heavenly Mother, obtain
a new effusion of the Holy Spirit."
(284p, Jan. 28, 1984)
The Whole Church Must Enter In.
The whole Church must now enter into the cenacle of my Immaculate Heart: all the
bishops, the priests, the religious and the faithful must enter. In the Cenacle
of Jerusalem, upon the Apostles gathered in prayer with me, there descended the
Holy Spirit, and there took place the miracle of the first Pentecost. Thus, only
in the cenacle of my Immaculate Heart, when the whole Church will have entered
in, will the great prodigy of the second Pentecost take place. It will be a
divine fire of purification and of sanctification which will renew all the face
of the earth.
My times have come. This is why the Pope, the first of
my beloved sons, is today opening an extraordinary Marian Year in my honor. I am
asking that the whole Church gather together in prayer with me, Mother of
Intercession and of Reparation. I want that all who belong to my Movement
increase in the personal commitment of their consecration, because in you my
Immaculate Heart must be more and more glorified.
For this I am asking you to multiply everywhere your cenacles of prayer and of
brotherly sharing and to lead the greatest number possible of my children to the
consecration to my Immaculate Heart. (355bcd, June 7, 1987)
And then, by means of the cenacles, she will save the whole world!
