Did You Know

Did you know…?!

Part 1 of 4:

I want to thank all those who gave me these tremendous comments; blessed be God. I want to thank you for calling me ignorant; for telling me that I do not know what church is. Thanks for calling me: the one who disqualifies priests. Thank you for telling me that I make generalizations about priests, for truly there are no imperfections within ecclesial communities but only love and blessings. As the Lord once told Abimelech, “It’s as if I am hindering you to do good,” because everything was already perfect, and there is nothing to amend. Thank you for calling me bitter; for telling me: “who am I to judge my neighbor?” Thank you for reminding me that when I go to church, I sin for listening to the loud cries of children. Thank you for calling me a false prophet.

I, Jesé Retoño, come from many ecclesial communities in Latin America, and in all of them, I have seen this same disorder and noncompliance with the laws of God. As my grandmother used to say, “En todas partes se cuecen habas” [Meaning: It’s an idiom suggesting that “someone always has to stir the pot,” or that there is always someone who will cause trouble]. And as the great apostle of the gentiles once said, “Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.” And as my mother always says, “Onward with the funeral,” since stubbornness comes first.

When Christ called me, he assured me that I would not be placed on a pedestal and that I would be treated like the prophets of old. Before starting this mission, the Church had already repudiated me, and it was the reason that, at one time, I didn’t want to bring the message to the Church. I preferred to follow in the footsteps of Jonah, but God’s mercy made me take pitty. My mission would be to tell the truth, and this would cause me opprobium and rejection in the same way that it happened to Christ, my brother.

I want you to know that my heavenly Mother listened to you, and she gave me this message herself, to remind you that she still cares for everyone; but that it’s extremely necessary that the truth be told. Everything I affirm and teach here in Piedrecita is true, and it is my very experience from years of sacrifices and dedication to Christ.

It is the divine Master’s will that I speak the truth and be loyal to his plans. Indeed, I know that I deserve repudiation; I know that a prophet has no place in this world. Because according to the Church, all are prophets and apostles now, and if Christ sends one more, such a prophet is inconsequential. That is why I will finish the mission that Christ entrusted me with, and I will return to my heavenly Father’s side. Indeed, “I am”, and only then will they remember me and regret it.

I know; Christ did remind me that: “A prophet is not without honor except in his native place and among his own kin and in his own house.” That is, the place where I am not welcome is precisely my Church, or in other words: my house or kin. I’m cognizant and aware of just how this is not my house, which is why I suffer so much, and that’s why I miss my heavenly Father so much.

Thanks for reminding me.
