(Vincent T. Bemowski)
Please note: As noted in the About/Contact section, I have received Papal blessings from Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI, and an endorsement from the late Cardinal Stickler and his blessing upon my Mission.
I was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1940. It is not part of my Mission to establish a "following" or set-up an "organization" to oppose lax or lukewarm shepherds and/or "sheep" within the Church. It is part of my Mission to "awaken" our shepherds and their sheep as to the Lord's Word for today's Church, for the good of their souls and for the good of the Church from which all mankind benefits.
JESUS is the "Good Shepherd" who because of His love for us suffered each moment of His life and died on a Cross from intense physical, and still greater sufferings within His Sacred Heart:
"I am the good shepherd; and I know mine, and mine know me. As the Father knoweth me, and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for my sheep" (John 10:14-15).
It is a terrible thing for a person's soul when he or she refuses to listen to, or refuses to follow God's Word, for JESUS sternly warns us:
"He that is of God heareth the words of God. Therefore you hear them not, because you are not of God" (John 8:47).
This writer is "retired" as our plant was closed late 1998 when I was 58 years old. I took care of my first wife (see category: "Saint" Loretta) who was disabled for 23 years until she died, April 22, 2009. She suffered from an incurable, inherited, progressive disease called Huntington's Chorea.
I now have remarried to another beautiful woman (August 2011), but continue to help provide for my youngest daughter (as any good father should) who has not been able to work for many years due a back injury resulting from an automobile accident. (She also suffers from Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and has a chemical imbalance).
To accomplish my Mission I need your help and prayers, for there is a great deal of work that must be done to make Catholics and other Christians aware of the spiritually lukewarm state of the Church, especially in America and the West. Therefore I ask your help in promoting this website (in any way the Lord leads you).
Most importantly, it is our prayer life and the spiritual state of our soul that will determine the future state of the Lord's Church.
As you are aware, when we, in a silent, restful state, begin to open our hearts to the Lord in prayer, we begin to realize the plan He has for us, that is, what His Will is for us.
While we live in this place of "penance" we must always try to accept and discern His Holy Will and strive to come to "live" in the Divine Will, for that is the greatest spiritual state we can achieve - for everyone in Heaven "lives" in the Divine Will and Jesus requested that we pray for this to also happen on earth:
"Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy Will be done, on earth, as It is in Heaven."
Spirituality is part of my Mission so I must use every opportunity to explain spiritual things to others through the charismatic Gift of Wisdom. For those who seek a closeness to the Lord above that of simply "doing His Will," I offer this example:
There is a vast difference between a "servant" and a son or daughter. The servant, although it is good and pleasing to the Lord, simply seeks to "obey" his or her master in everything. The other, being the master's child, receives his special blessing and shares to a far greater degree in the things a father gives only to a son or daughter.
In a similar manner, a child's inheritance from Almighty God (place in Heaven) will also be far greater than that of a person who simply did God's Will in the manner of a "servant," providing that son or daughter comes to "live in the Divine Will."
This spiritual state is desired by only a few, for to achieve it one must be unafraid give up all "rights" to his or her own will and be totally lead by the Holy Spirit so that you think, speak, and act as the Lord Wills to think, speak and act through you:
"For whosoever are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For you have not received the spirit of bondage again in fear, but you have received the spirit of adoption of sons, whereby we cry: 'Abba (Father).' For the Spirit himself giveth testimony to our spirit, that we are of God. And if sons, heirs also; heirs indeed of God, and joint heirs with Christ; yet so, if we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified with him" (Romans 8:14-17).
Our Blessed Mother, who is Mother and Queen of the Divine Will, "lived in the Divine Will" in the most perfect spiritual state possible for a human being. And now others who are less perfect creatures are being given knowledge of this special spiritual state, beginning with Luisa Piccarreta who also came to "live" in the Divine Will and whose Cause for Beatification is under investigation by the Church.
If you wish to learn more about "living in the Divine Will" you must study the writings of Luisa Piccarreta. See:
DivineWill.org - An Introduction - Consecration to the Divine Will - Biographies and Information about Luisa Piccarreta - Letters of Luisa - The Writings of Luisa Piccarreta - The Cause for Beatification - Luisa's Transit into Heaven
Please Note: Although Luisa Piccarreta (see category: Luisa Slandered) is now being investigated by the Magistrium of the Church, she is, in an almost unheard of manner, being discredited and slandered by some in the Church who lack wisdom for spiritual matters and claim greater wisdom than those given the responsibility to examine her Cause for Sainthood.
Although what the Holy Spirit has revealed to me will be misunderstood by many, those difficulties will not deter or delay my Mission. And although my Mission also involves offering counsel (through the Holy Spirit) to the good Shepherds and their sheep, it would not be spiritually proper to give this writer too much personal attention. We must give our attention to the Lord and His Word. Therefore, as my Mission progresses I must increasingly live by these Words:
"He (JESUS) must increase, but I must decrease" (John 3:30).
For I am only a man, a simple servant of the Lord, and although I write what the Spirit reveals to me and try to follow Christ, I still remain a creature and owe my existence to Almighty God who is my Creator:
"He that cometh from above, is above all. He that is of the earth, of the earth he is, and of the earth he speaketh. He that cometh from heaven, is above all....He that believeth in the Son hath life everlasting, but he that believeth not the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on him" (John 3:31,36).
This "servant of the Lord" does this work out of love for the Church and in obedience to my Lord, for the two part booklet I wrote: Is Today's Church Pleasing to God? and The Messages to the Churches (see "Worldly Diocese" & my letter to the U.S. Bishops) was dedicated to the "good shepherds and others who love the Church." Therefore, all publishing and mailing expenses for this booklet (which is no longer in print due to being published on this website) I have borne, for the Sacred Scriptures tell us:
"Buy truth, and do not sell wisdom, and instruction, and understanding" (Proverbs 23:23).
God bless you,
