From a dream of St. John Bosco:
“I found myself, mysteriously, on the beach of the sea, above an isolated rock. On the waters I saw an innumerable multitude of ships ordered by battle, armed with cannons, loaded with rifles, weapons of all kinds, incendiary materials and even books. They all advanced against a much larger, taller ship, attempting to shoot down or set it on fire. To this majestic ship, furnished with everything, stocked many ships, which from it received command signals to defend themselves from their enemies. The rough seas and the wind seemed to favour the enemies. On the expanse of the sea stood two sturdy columns, very high, not far from each other; above one stood the statue of the Immaculate Virgin, at whose feet it was written: “Auxilium Christianorum” (Help of Christians); on the other, which was much taller and larger, stood an Host of greatness proportionate to the column, with these words: “Salus Credentium” (Health of believers)...
Newsletter n°9 – Tuesday, November 24, 2020
Saint John of the Cross
Dear friends, brothers in Christ,
praise be to Jesus Christ! Hail Mary!
This short newsletter is to present you again an article that we had not previously spread by email. It is therefore possible that many of you have not read it. We submit it to your attention and to your practice because of the importance of the subject matter.
It talks about the Internet and how we should use this tool. The darkness is thick. Never before has chaos and division seem to reign unchallenged. In this scenario it is not easy to distinguish the true from the false, those who work for good and those for evil. Everything and its opposite is affirmed, leaving consciences in consternation and inability to act. This state of chaos is certainly created on purpose with luciferic art.
Because of this, we really urge you not to be caught up in the need for information at all costs and, even less so, not to get lost in unnecessary diatribes and discussions. Although it is necessary to get an idea of the situations, it is necessary not to be taken by the hand and not to fall into the trap. The Enemy wants to take away our stability, wants to instill fear in us and feed our self-love. Above all, he wants us to stay on the surface.
So let us not fall into the trap. Once the essential information has been received, our efforts are totally directed towards prayer, adoration and penance. Let us take refuge in interiority, where the raging storm and the mussel of the enormous waves gives way to a stable peace, that peace that the world cannot give; where division ceases, giving way to the Truth that alone shines and that alone remains. Let us remain in the contemplation of this Truth. It will set us free. Everything else will dissolve. The lie will vanish because it is simply nothing more than an evanescent bubble, which will not be long in revealing its inconsistency. It’s going to vanish because it just isn’t.
Let us convert this time of terrible trial in time of Grace and go up to Carmel. The lie is so obvious that we have no choice but to go inside us to find salvation. Those who do not do this will peri-
Let us therefore eliminate every frill, every attachment to superfluous things and pleasures. We offer this in sacrifice and for the purpose of reparation for that enormous “mass of sin” that is about to fall on humanity.
Austere militancy! Remember that every day. Let these words be imprinted on us! This is the imprint, the note that must resonate from each of the members of Exsurge Christianitas so that it may rise to God and, as an aroma of incense burned for sacrifice, attract the Divine Spouse.
Exsurge doesn’t want to be a lukewarm anime group. Exsurge wants to be a group of ardent souls, consumed by zeal for the house of the Lord, who none other desire victory, they do not want it to acclame from every place: “Long live Christ the King and Mary Queen!”
We dedicate all our energy to this mission without saving anything. We will have time to rest when all this is over.
Not nobis Domine, not nobis, sed nomini tuo da gloriam!
WE ASK YOU TO CONTINUE BOOKING YOUR ON-CALL HOURS AND TO MAKE YOU A CALENDAR. OUR GOAL IS TO HAVE AT LEAST TWO WEEKS OF CALENDAR COVERAGE.
WE ALSO REPEAT THE INVITATION TO JOIN THE TELEGRAM GROUP TO FACILITATE THE DISSEMINATION OF ORGANIZATIONAL INFORMATION (thus limitING the number of newsletterS) AND FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF LAST-MINUTE WAIVERS.

Thank you for your valuable cooperation
We are working on a number of fronts that are well aware of what needs to be done. What we are working on and will implement as soon as possible is:
INSTRUCTIONS ON THE DESIGN OF LIVING LAMPS
Although it is already possible to book hours of adoration, the Living Lamps project has not yet been structured, having given priority to the organization of the Network of the Perpetual Rosary. We expect to be able to give more precise instructions on this shortly, so that we can give a greater boost to this Exsurge “column” as well.
CREATION OF ZEALOT/ZELATRICE GROUP
A campaign will soon be launched for the formation of a group of zealots and zeators, that is, for those who want to help us and feel enthusiasm for the work of spreading the Exsurge network in Italy and abroad.
CREATING A SECTION OF “ALLIED” SITES
Remembering Exsurge’s vocation to be a connective pole, we are working to forge alliances with traditional forces. The goal, in addition to creating a page where to publish selected articles of the “allied forces” will also be to develop projects in a coordinated way. But let us leave this further development to the will of the Immaculate Conception!
