Mary: The kingdom of Jesus begins by clothing the soul in divine grace, the life of the Trinity.

Monsignor John Esseff and Mother Teresa

Let me introduce myself; I am Monsignor John Esseff, a diocesan priest of Scranton, Pa., ordained in 1953. In 1959, Padre Pio became my spiritual director. For many years, I was the spiritual director for Mother Teresa of Calcutta. As a favor to her, I traveled all over the world, giving retreats, to her sisters. Above all, I am privileged to be spiritual director for hundreds of souls, at every stage of the spiritual life. Some are beginners, others are advanced and some are mystics.
For many years, I have been director for a special soul. Five years ago, Jesus and Mary began to speak to this soul through the gift of locutions (as described by John of the Cross). These locutions now total over 800. I have discerned the validity of these locutions. Until now, these locutions were personal teachings given for the small community that gathered in prayer. Beginning on December 10, 2010, a new phase began, namely, some locutions were to be told to the whole world.
The beginning locutions are very special; focusing on the Fatima Vision (released by the Vatican (June 2000).


 1. Jesus’ Kingdom

Aug 1st, 2013
I see Satan’s kingdom with all of its evil plans and powers of destruction. However, I also see the beautiful kingdom that Jesus preached. Through Jesus, this kingdom has come upon the earth. However each person must believe in Jesus and be baptized, so the kingdom can come in its fullness. This is what I will describe in these coming days. Let us begin.
Originally, the kingdom of God was firmly established and mankind enjoyed a close friendship with God that no one on earth can even imagine. However mankind freely chose to turn away from God. (Such was the powerful deceit of the Evil One.) However, God had the final word promising that Jesus would be sent. Speaking to Satan, God said, “I will put an enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers.” (Gen.3:15)
I will be describing this heavenly realm which Jesus has brought to earth.

So much to pour out of my heart! I rejoice to speak out. The kingdom of Jesus begins by clothing the soul in divine grace, the life of the Trinity. The soul is snatched away from Satan’s grasp, transferred from the kingdom of darkness and into Jesus’ kingdom of light.
The soul becomes a new creation, filled with supernatural powers. The soul becomes a child of God and an heir with Jesus, its brother. Such is the glory and dignity conferred as the soul is clothed with divine grace. This begins my explanation of heavenly life, a gift which Jesus restored to the human race.

3. Life Within Jesus
Aug 3rd, 2013
This divine life is the same life that I received at the moment of my Immaculate Conception. The person becomes a child of the Trinity and enjoys the life of the Father, Son and Spirit. This life flowed within Jesus and is given to all who believe in him and are baptized.
I see everyone in the world. Some have this divine life and others do not. I sorrow over every human suffering, large or small, but I sorrow the most over those who do not have this divine life.
Jesus always told people to seek true life and to be rich in heavenly things. He was speaking about this divine life that I will explain each day.

4. A Community Filled With Divine Life

Aug 4th, 2013
Reader, I must first explain the state of the human race and how you can gain the divine life. The heavenly Father so loved these newly created human persons that he clothed them in divine life and they enjoyed a friendship with him. However, they were deceived by the Prince of Darkness and made the horrible mistake of disobeying God and forfeiting this divine life. They and all their children were led into the darkness where mankind still abides. This is the first truth. Mankind is born into darkness.
However, the Father sent Jesus, the light of the world, to save mankind from this death and darkness. By my Immaculate Conception, I was the first to be rescued. As Jesus preached and gathered disciples, others came into the light. The divine gift was sealed by Jesus appearing after his death and resurrection to those whom he had chosen beforehand. When these disciples received the Holy Spirit, Jesus’ community, filled with divine life, was ready to share that life with the whole world. This was the beginning gift of the Father.

5. Believe, Repent and Be Baptized

Aug 5th, 2013
This little community filled with divine life and knew exactly what to do. Jesus had instructed them to preach to the whole world and to make disciples of the nations. These disciples told the whole world about Jesus’ death and resurrection and of his promise of eternal life to all who believe in his power and his name. They invited all who believed their preaching to be baptized.
In this way, divine life went out from this little community to the whole world, just as it does today. I am the world’s preacher and I invite you, if you have not been baptized, to believe in Jesus, to repent of your sins, and to be baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. In this way, the divine life of Jesus will make you a new creation.

6. A Child of God

 Aug 6th, 2013
When the Holy Spirit of Jesus enters by Baptism, the soul becomes a new creation and a child of God. They are filled with divine powers and many potentialities that are released by the other sacraments. All is contained in the baptismal gift, even their specific call to serve the Church and the world. So much to explain in the coming days! Where will I begin?
I will start with the soul becoming a child of God. Jesus alone enjoys this power to make you a child of God. John writes “But to those who did accept him, he gave power to become children of God to those who believe in his name” (1:12). The human family was divided, cast into darkness and burdened with sin. Jesus formed a new family and Baptism is the birth into this family. All the angels and saints are also members of this family. They help the soul to reach heaven.
However, every child of God must freely choose to remain in the Father’s house. Everyone is free, like the Prodigal Son, to take their inheritance and to leave. My heart sorrows because so many have made that choice. How I want them to repent and to say, “I will return to my Father’s house”. I search for these souls. I even allow them to experience hardships so they understand the blessings they used to enjoy.
So much to explain. The gifts of the heavenly realm are infinite.

7. The Seed of Faith

 Aug 7th, 2013

Just as the newly born infant has many powers that will increase as he grows up, so this divine life contains powers that are meant to grow. These powers are like seeds planted in the soul. Unfortunately, the ground might not receive this seed fully and there is no harvest. I will explain what happens when the divine life is fully welcomed. I will begin with the power of faith.
Faith opens the door to the heavenly realm and the soul experiences a new life. When a child becomes an adolescent, they experience a new world of human relationships. By faith, the soul sees the great possibilities of a life with the Father. It realizes the great love of Jesus who gained these heavenly riches by his death. The soul sees that I am its heavenly mother. All is new. Another world and new possibilities come into sight. Suddenly, the soul begins to hope.

8. Heaven Can Be Mine


As faith opens the heavenly doors the soul begins to realize, “All of this can be mine. I can live forever. I can be perfectly happy.” Joy fills them and they are ready to sell all they have to gain Jesus’ kingdom.
Contained in this hope is a purpose that will never disappoint them and a goal which they know is not an illusion because it is based upon the promises of God himself. Filled with faith and surrounded by divine hope, they realize that the Father is inviting them to make a decision. By faith, the door is open. By hope, the person sees the Father’s heavenly gifts. However, only by love can the soul embrace the kingdom. This is the divine question. Will they love God above all things and open their lives to his intrusions?

9. Being United By Love

 Aug 9th, 2013

Faith and hope are divine powers that lift the soul, like a rocket, far into the mysteries of the heavenly realm. The soul arrives into the presence of God and is overwhelmed by these inner powers that constantly push the soul deeper and deeper into God’s life.
Suddenly, another power emerges that was hidden until now. The soul experiences an invitation, as God himself speaks “Do you want to be one with me, bonded together forever?” How is this possible? Yet, the soul experiences supernatural charity, an urge to surrender to divine love.
The soul also sees the cost of this surrender. All that is self will be burned away. Only God’s life of Baptism will remain. (Some walk away sad, like the rich young man.) At this moment, I stand with the soul who sees that I fully accepted divine love. I help the soul to accept this baptismal power of faith, hope and love. With that surrender, the divine life contained in the baptismal seed can break out of its protective shell.
