We, who are the Church Militant, are in con­stant com­mu­nion with the Church Triumphant, with the Saints and Angels of Heaven. The Saints are our ex­amples, our in­ter­cessors. Therefore, we do not wor­ship Mary, the Mother of GOD, and the Saints, but we ven­er­ate and love them. Examine the lives of the Saints, ex­am­ine what their life of vir­tue con­sisted of, and then im­it­ate their holy life. Take the Saints of Heaven for your in­ter­cessors at GOD’s throne that they may bring you closer and closer to GOD!

Mary – Triumphant Empress

See here Mary, the Mother of GOD, as tri­umphant heav­enly Empress! GOD does not only want to see her cel­eb­rated as “Triumphant Empress” in Heaven, but by His whole cre­ation, in par­tic­u­lar by His holy Church on earth!

GOD is will­ing to in­tro­duce her as mir­acle-work­ing Empress. As heav­enly thron­ing Empress she is meant to tri­umph vic­tori­ously! Especially over Satan and all his mach­in­a­tions.

Enough of those blood-weep­ing and gory statues and im­ages of the Blessed Virgin and JESUS. Who do people think GOD and the heav­enly Empress are? The Evil One really en­joys it: while he marches on from tri­umph to tri­umph, Heaven seems to weep and moan in blood and tears. Does it not rather say: “GOD mocks His en­emies!”? Stop look­ing at her as pi­ti­able Mother of GOD, rather in­voke her help as tri­umphant heav­enly Empress! As such she has power!

Look, here in this small church room in Rehetobel she sits as Empress and Regent. From here she will set out on her tri­umphant pro­gress through­out the whole world. Every hu­man be­ing is al­lowed to ven­er­ate her and take up her time, no mat­ter which faith they have at the mo­ment. It will bring rich graces to any­one who makes a pil­grim­age to her here, on this site chosen by Heaven! Anyone who can­not man­age may also ex­per­i­ence her help and care through a copy of the ori­ginal statue, provided that it was blessed by my bish­ops or priests!

The Empress Showing the Way to GOD
The present epi­demic is that most people make for them­selves their own im­age of GOD by twist­ing re­li­gion ac­cord­ing to their own fancy and ob­ses­sions, as they see fit. If you say to them: “Take Mary for show­ing you the way to GOD,” they only have con­temp­tu­ous or very vehe­ment words about it, not think­ing that they are speak­ing about the Daughter, Mother and Bride of GOD.

No one can say that he loves GOD if he does not keep His Commandments and does not ap­pre­ci­ate or even spurns His Sacraments, which He be­queathed to His Church for Christian life. No one served GOD so pleas­ingly as Mary did! It has pleased GOD, the LORD, to take Flesh through a most pure vir­gin (as be­fits GOD) and to be born of her. It pleased Him that she, whom He called His Mother and calls such to all etern­ity and loves in a di­vine man­ner, should also be hon­oured and loved by us men as His and our heav­enly Mother.

GOD Himself is fath­erly and moth­erly. The SON of GOD showed us the fath­erly love of GOD, and through the Mother of GOD He would like to let us know His moth­erly love. GOD spoke: “Honour your father and your mother so that it may go well with you and that you may live long on earth!”

How do you be­lieve it would be if CHRIST Himself dis­dained this in His nat­ural Mother? Thus it simply goes without say­ing that GOD now be­stows on His be­loved earthly Mother all di­vine love and glory which He is able to give her as GOD and as her heav­enly SON. And what GOD does is al­ways to be loved and to be praised!

We know that GOD likes to ex­alt, of all things, the in­sig­ni­fic­ant. And since Mary had once been of too little sig­ni­fic­ance for cer­tain an­gels to have been will­ing to re­cog­nise her as their Empress, it was she whom GOD raised so high above the Angels, which is ter­rible now for these fallen an­gels. And now the same is hap­pen­ing again on the part of men. Is it pos­sible then that a hu­man be­ing is cap­able of hav­ing too low an opin­ion of Mary, whom GOD found worthy to be born of, and whom He hon­ours and loves as His Mother? If a hu­man be­ing prefers to think like that, my GOD, this even out­matches Lucifer’s pride! Come, let us also love and ven­er­ate her whole­heartedly as our heav­enly Mother!

St. Joseph – Protector of the Church

If we talk about St. Joseph, we im­me­di­ately think of the Holy Family: Joseph, Mary and JESUS. This unity of the Holy Family is so enorm­ous that it is an im­age of the unity of the Most Holy TRINITY. However, not only is the unique holi­ness of St. Joseph to be ad­mired but above all his high dig­nity both as nurs­ing and foster Father of JESUS and as Spouse of Mary, the Most Blessed Virgin and Mother of GOD.

This ex­traordin­ary dig­nity did not only ap­ply to his earthly life, but con­tin­ues to ex­ist in a glor­i­ous way in Heaven. JESUS loved Joseph as no other father on earth had ever been loved. If GOD was already so faith­ful to His nurs­ing and foster Father on earth, how faith­ful will He now also be to him in Heaven.

We know that St. Joseph, in this sub­lime elec­tion as no other Saint has, is of­ten found side­long be­hind the di­vine throne of JESUS like a fath­erly ad­viser. St. Joseph would be able to do so much more for us, if only we asked him more of­ten for it. By do­ing so we, as Church Militant, would also en­hance the hon­our and glory of St. Joseph.

Terror of the Evil Spirits
St. Joseph has a si­lent way of his very own in be­ing Protector of the Church. Odd is also: when you con­fide in him, you will find a pe­cu­liar, deep warmth and se­cur­ity. He was, is and re­mains simply father. Do not for­get, Mary and Joseph, the greatest Saints of Heaven, they have not come for­ward with great of­fi­cial
ap­pear­ances, speeches or whatever. Silently and saintly they have dis­charged the du­ties of their sta­tion. Mary washed the swad­dling clothes, stood at the stove, ran the house­hold. Joseph, be­ing a simple car­penter, worked as a day-la­bourer to gain a live­li­hood for his Family. He be­came great with simple work. And yet he is now in Heaven far above any Pope. – With his si­lence, mod­esty and humble­ness, with his still be­ing mis­judged he has be­come Protector of the Church, ter­ror of the evil spir­its.

In ex­or­cisms I have ex­per­i­enced my­self what it means: “Saint Joseph, You ter­ror of the evil spir­its …” – He is in­deed the ter­ror of the evil spir­its!

Many won­der: “But where is the Protector of the Church today? Why does he not come to the res­cue of the Church and save her from the fall?” – My dearly be­loved, St. Joseph would have the power to des­troy the de­moniac in­trigues at once and build up everything again. But the chaff must be sep­ar­ated from the wheat. The Evil One has been given his time, and only when GOD says: “Enough!” will St. Joseph play his part as well. GOD is in­vin­cible! In His justice and ac­cord­ing to His stand­ard He will de­term­ine time and plan.

St. Nicholas of Flue, Brother Klaus

Brother Klaus means a lot to me, not only be­cause he is my name pat­ron but also be­cause he is the Patron Saint of Switzerland and was ap­poin­ted by the Pope as Patron of the world peace. We most ur­gently need this Patron and in­ter­cessor in these days. Even if we know that it is too late be­cause sin is rampant, let us im­plore him all the more and not give up. The world­wide situ­ation is much worse than it ap­pears. We are in ur­gent need of peace. Not only for our own sake, but for GOD’s and the younger generation’s sake.

Saint Nicholas of Flue used to say: “Peace is al­ways in GOD!” – How true this say­ing is. Peace is a fruit of the HOLY SPIRIT. If you are at peace with GOD, then this peace will dwell in your heart, no mat­ter whether it is stormy out­side, whether hell is on the ram­page or the end of the world has come. But if you are at strife and vari­ance, the HOLY SPIRIT will flee from your heart and with Him so will GOD’s peace.

Brother Klaus lived without food for 20 years, only on Holy Communion. So many mir­acles took place on his in­ter­ces­sion. It is a pity that Brother Klaus is not so much ven­er­ated in Switzerland as would be de­sir­able. Especially politi­cians should at­tach more value to his words of ad­vice, such as: “Do not make your fence too wide!” as well as: “Do not meddle in for­eign af­fairs!” They brag about their Father of the na­tion, the holy Brother Klaus, yet they had bet­ter heed his ad­vice first.

During the Second World War, many Swiss sought refuge in prayer with Brother Klaus. As the Nazis were march­ing to the bor­der in or­der to over­run Switzerland, in the sky above the fron­tier along the Rhine a large hand in a brown habit was seen sink­ing into the Rhine. This is what my father used to tell me. Everybody knew that this was Brother Klaus’s hand pre­serving peace in the home­land. At other fron­ti­ers, too, Brother Klaus’s hand was per­ceived. The en­emy force, in which even Bedouins on horse­back were spot­ted, re­tired com­pletely.

I won­der if Brother Klaus is still al­lowed to keep his hand pro­tect­ively over Switzerland even today. GOD lets me feel that Brother Klaus is neither able nor al­lowed to do so any more since people are in­creas­ingly turn­ing away from GOD. The Church has ap­poin­ted Brother Klaus Patron of the world peace. It is he whom we should im­plore in our pray­ers. GOD re­wards per­sever­ing prayer.
