United in one same mission

To take part in the mission of the Mother Church is a great privilege, because it means that our work is the same of Christ even if each has a proper specific task concerning those who are close and far from us. Yet everyone, by divine vocation, is called to take part in this mission.

The mission of The Work of the Church is to fulfill the request engraved by the Lord on Mother Trinidad’s soul since 1959 , “Go and tell it, this is for everyone!” and ever since then, she has been wandering on earth seeking someone who can help her help the Church. Let it be you, yourself, one of those who joyfully lay down their life for the unknown, persecuted, slandered, glorious and banished Church in the hearts of many.

 

 

An excerpt of the book

“MOTHER TRINIDAD DE LA SANTA MADRE IGLESIA
AND HER WORK OF THE CHURCH”

 

The apostolic activity of The Work of the Church is very wide, varied and intense.

To make it known in a succinct manner, there is nothing better than to select some paragraphs of the last part of the theme “The Church, mystery of unity” written by MotherTrinidad on the 22nd of November 1968:

«The Work of the Church… comes for everyone and to bring up to date, in the warmth of the infinite Wisdom, the warm and living presentation of our very rich dogma. It comes to bring the warm theology, warmed up in love, showing the sparkling face of God, who manifests Himself in the splendorous face of the Great Christ of all ages.

 

The mission of The Work of the Church is totally apostolic… Collectively it wants to be a perennial manifestation of the mystery of the Church and, through its members, a living testimony of a profound Christianity in all places where these exercise their profession.

It runs the parishes that are entrusted to it; organizes in its Houses of Apostolate “The Plan of God in the Church” for priests, religious, and lay persons of every class and condition; it offers “Personal experiences of the Church” in religious communities, seminaries, schools, etc.; it goes to other parishes to give in them “Weeks of Church”; it works with children and youth throughout the year in the “youth Homes” of its apostolic centres or of the parishes; it organizes for them weekly formation meetings, “Days of youth guidance”, camping or walks to the mountain during the year, summer camping; and, for all sorts of people, talks, meetings, reunions, retreats…

 

The members of The Work of the Church, in the different fields and apostolic tasks, labour jointly, working together priests and lay people, even though each may do it with those of their own sex, age and state, priests attending to the spiritual needs of each one.

In our parishes we try to instruct everyone spiritually, in such a way that they may be aware of their Christianity and be charitable towards God and towards others, trying to solve all the spiritual and material problems of the parishioners. The priests fulfill their apostolic mission of helping in the formation of all; and lay men and women participate in this work, but joining as other lay people in their mission in relation to God and the world; as not only in their work hours do they exercise the individual and indirect apostolate, but also during their free time allowed by prayer and their job they dedicate themselves to the direct apostolate.

 

Our spirit, therefore, is the spirit of the Church, our life, hers, our specific mission, to help the Pope and the Bishops to discover, unravel and manifest the richness of this Holy Mother».

It would take a long chapter to explain, for example, what are the days of “The Plan of God in the Church”; how the youth of The Work of the Church work with children, youngsters and adolescents; how they organize a camping; what spirit they carry on in the different excursions and outings or the fruit they gather in “Days of youth guidance”.

 

It would be wonderful to see how lay people act in the “Personal experiences of the Church”, how they give, together with priests, the “Talks on the mystery of the Church” and how they intervene in “The Plan of God in the Church”.

And it would be tremendously stimulating to describe the apostolate that lay and priest are able to develop, working as a team in the parishes entrusted to TheWork of the Church.

 

The day that it is discovered, it will astonish to see how unnoticed and simply the Lord realizes that which is so complex, difficult and sometimes impossible to human efforts.

God is the infinite Virginity (II)

The second part of this piece of writing instils into the reader the desire to live out the reality of virginity.

From its Trinitarian root manifested by Christ and Mary through the mystery of the Incarnation, virginity shows us then its irresistible appeal through its grandeur, its fruitfulness and supernatural beauty. Those who find this precious pearl, sell whatever they have –surely of little value if compared to God– in order to buy the greatest treasure in life: to be God’s image and to live what He lives.

“God is the infinite Virginity”

 

[…]God, since He is Himself in Himself the Infinite Perfection, due to the perfection in holiness of His own nature, adheres only to Him-self, in such fullness and plenitude, that He Himself in Himself, by Himself and for Himself, having Himself so everything been and being all what He is in the subsistent instant of being Himself such on account of the plethoric and exuberant sublimeness of His perfection, is the infinite Copious Outflow of His eternal fruitfulness.[…]

Christ, in His humanity, is such a perfect cry of virginity, so much of: God alone!, so much, so much, so much…! that He does not have any person other than the divine; being all the movements of His humanity a total adherence to His Person, a cry of God alone! that manifests itself throughout His whole life, acts, gestures and words.

How will be able the most holy humanity of Christ, created to be a total adherence to the Word of the Father in a hypostatic union of eternal and indissoluble spousal, to long for, want, say or seek anything other than the inexhaustible, plethoric and infinite Perfection…?! […]

Christ is the perfect union of the humanity and the Divinity in and through His divine person, in a transcendent mystery of such sublimeness, that, in that same hypostatic union and in the adherence of His humanity to His Divinity, it makes Him God and Man in the per¬son of the Word Incarnate.
Christ in His whole humanity is the expression of the Father’s Virginity in a spelling-out to men; it is a relation of God to men and of men to God; being, because of His person, God, infinitely separate from all that is created, and a human expression to men in a self-giving of eternal loves through the Incarnation. […]

To the extent that we unite ourselves to the Supreme Good, we become virginized, because we gradually adhere and become similar to Him, and separate ourselves from creatures.

That is why when, in His infinite plan, God determined to pick up man from his prostration and draw him to the depth of His blessed chest, He worked on earth such a perfect miracle of virginity, so much, so much, so much!, that He was able to make, out of Man, God, in the perfect adherence of the humanity to the Divinity in the person of the Word.

O Sancta Sanctorum of the Incarnation! through which is realized, in the innermost being of Mary, the unsuspected mystery of the union of God with the Man for the redeeming restoration of fallen mankind… O virginity of the all White Lady of the Incarnation…!

Mary was such a perfect adherence to the infinite Virginity, so much, so much!, that the fruit of Her fruitful virginity was to break out into divine Motherhood only by the power of the Holy Spirit; the Spouse who, in the touch of His infinite perfection, made Her so wonderfully fruitful, that, through Her and in Her virginal innermost being, the Word of the Father became Man.

O virginity, virginity of Mary! so plethoric, that, by the infinite kiss of the Holy Spirit in fiery passage over the Lady, She breaks out into motherhood and divine Motherhood; in such fruitfulness, that She is not only capable of being the Mother of the Incarnate Word, but, out of the overabundance of that same Motherhood and in the repleteness of Her virginity, She is the universal Mother of all men.

[…] whoever may want to know the transcendent transcendency of the infinite Virginity introducing himself into the Sancta Sanctorum of the Trinity, has to enter into the most pure and maternal inner being of Mary, from where God gives and communicates Himself to men in the Sancta Sanctorum of the transcendent virginity of the Lady, through the mystery of the Incarnation. […]

Virginity, or consecrated chastity, when it is perfect, it seeks the fullness of its perfection in the glorification of God and absolute surrender to Him. And to the extent that man lives on God alone, adhering, in so far as he is and possesses, to the Supreme Good and to His plan, he is, according to his capacity, in the possession and fullness of the Supreme Perfection, in such a way that he makes himself conform to It, breaking out into fruits of eternal life for himself and for others. […]

He who tries to keep himself virgin in memory, understanding, will, desires, tendencies, etc., lives adhered to God alone and for God alone, and then his life is full of the Supreme Good, possessed only by Him and impregnated by His infinite thought. […]

How great is the virgin soul that enjoys Heaven during exile, and that turns the earth into Heaven with the witness of its life and its word before the others…! The virgin soul is a canticle in expression of Eternity and a patent manifestation before the world of: God alone! […]

The most virgin is the most fruitful. That is why, who is more Virgin than God, adhered infinitely only to Himself, which makes Him break out begetting the Word? […]

The man who discovers God, rushes irresistibly to meet all his brothers in order to introduce them into the eternal joy of the infinite perfections. Therefore the priesthood, the missionary life and the consecration to God, arise from the dazzling discovery of the infinite Virginity that, captivating us, impels us to be, with Christ and Mary, a returning adherence to the Supreme Good. […]

O virginity, unknown virginity!, you are so sublime, that the fruit of your conquests is God alone for you and for all those who surround you.

O virginity, virginity, you that have your beginning in God, and the expression of your fruit is the mystery of the Incarnation by the maternal virginity of Mary!

O virginity, virginity, as great as it is unknown…

God is the infinite Virginity (I)

Virginity has never left people indifferent. People either admire it and believe it is a desirable good or either laugh at it and consider it something unreachable. It is the very same thing happening with God, you are either with Him or against Him.

Virginity has its theological foundation in the very mystery of God. The first part of this writing is a clear demonstration that God and Virginity, Holiness and Mercy –in its outpouring over misery while remaining spotless– are identical. Congratulations to those “who having ears, hear”, understand, cling to and follow the Lamb wherever He goes, being virgins.

“God is the infinite Virginity”

 

God, by the perfection of His very nature, is Himself the Being infinitely and eternally separate from all that it is not His Divinity, in perfect and finished adherence to Himself, in Himself, by Himself and for Himself; since between the creature and the Creator there exists an infinite distance of being;

adherence in coeternal Holiness of transcendental infinite Virginity that, in God, is to break out in such an so overabundant fruitfulness of being and so plethoric with life, that it makes Him be a Father of exuberant fruitfulness due to the loving adherence that He has to Himself in His act of life.

God is the eternal Virginity, infinitely separate from all that is not He; since, that which makes Him break out into fruitfulness begetting, is not His union with anything outside Himself, but the adherence which He has Himself in Himself and to Himself in the consubstantial loving separation, recondite and veiled of His being Himself the Uncreated. […]

O Sancta Sanctorum of the eternal Wisdom, that hides the infinite Virginity, infinitely distant and distinct from all that has been created, in the most blissful concealment of his being Himself Fruitfulness, bursting into a most bright begetting of explanatory, recondite and returned Word…!

God is the eternal and exuberant Perfection, and, therefore, the sole reality capable of fulfilling the infinite exigencies for perfection in the possession that He is and has in Himself; being His adherence to Himself an act of life plethoric with infinite perfection and to His infinite perfection.

To the extent that God is adhered to Himself, in His act of eternal virginity, to that same extent He is fruitful, and, therefore infinitely fruitful; so much so, that the fruit of His fruitfulness is all that He is, in Expression, in a Son who utters, in a Canticle of eternal and returning love towards the Father, the whole inexhaustible plenitude of subsistent Wisdom.

And as, by virtue of the infinite adherence that the Father has to Himself, on account of the perfection of His very nature, “in holy splen-dour” He breaks out begetting the Word; at that very instant without time in which the Word is begotten, This One is, by the being received from the Father, an act of infinite adherence to the Father Himself.

Being the union in adherence of donations and loving returns which the two divine Persons have Themselves between Themselves so mutual, so tight, so perfect and of such plethoric virginity, so much, so much…! that, in an embrace of paternal-filial virginity, they break out into a so perfect and consubstantial Love, so eternal and infinite, so mutual and so intercommunicative, so for Himself, so for Himself…! in the mutual adherence of their paternal-filial intercommunication, that this Love is the infinite Person of the Holy Spirit; who, in the perfect adherence of His personal reality, is the loving and finished rest that the Father and the Son have Themselves, when loving each other, in adherence of paternal-filial embrace of infinite love.

Being the Father everything in Himself and for Himself, and for the Word; and the Word, everything in Himself, received from the Father, for Himself and for the Father. And both of them –the Father by Himself and the Word by His being received from the Father–, in the consubstantial embrace of their mutual donation and return, are for the Holy Spirit; and the Holy Spirit is, by the Father and by the Son, for Himself, and for the Father and for the Son, an adherence of eternal love in loving returns.

That is why the three divine Persons are each one as much for Himself as for the others, the ones being in the others. And in the intercommunication of the three Persons, God lives, in the separation of His infinitely distinct and distant being from everything that is not He, in a Trinitarian and communicative act of eternal virginity.

Because all that God is Himself, lives and has, He is so, essentially and substantially, only in Himself, by Himself and for Himself, in perfect, comprehended and finished adherence, in infinite separation from all that has been created, in His Trinitarian act of plethoric and consubstantial Virginity.

God is adhered only to Himself in the infinitely distant separation of all that is not He; that is why the life of God, in the perfection of His intercommunication, is a single act of eternal Virginity in finished perfection.

Perfect virginity is the adherence to the Supreme Good, and the complete and absolute separation from all that is not He. Therefore, when the creature discovers the bright light of the eternal Wisdom, enthralled by it, it leaves all that is creation to rush irresistibly to the untiring search for God alone! […]

O Virginity, unknown Virginity!, because the Supreme Good is unknown insofar as He is, and unknown, therefore, all that we are able to be in the participation in His fullness…
