What is the Eternal Virgin Eucharist Church?
The Eternal Virgin Eucharist Church is the completion of the promise made at the beginning of creation on the sixth day: “Let us make man to our image and likeness” (Gn 1:26). We have said very often before that the fulfillment of Judaism is Christianity, and the fulfillment of Christianity is Eucharistedness. This Eucharistedness can only be found in the Eternal Virgin Eucharistic Church, fulfilling the promise in Revelation which Jesus gave to us: “He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches: To him that overcomes I will give the hidden manna and will give him a white counter, and in the counter, a new name written, which no man knows but he that receives it” (Apoc 2:17). The ‘hidden manna’ is Holy Eucharist which can only be received under certain condition of faith. The ‘white counter’ is freedom from previous entanglements and observations.
Who can enter in?
All people under the sun who are baptized and want to be born again in the ‘new man’ with the ‘new name’, in the ‘new creation’, in the newness of life. The ‘new name’ is ‘Eucharistic man’ who is the fulfillment of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, Who arose as Christ Jesus, the New Man, the First born of the New Creation. In this promise we are assured that if we believe totally without wavering, we know that “we have been planted together in the likeness of His death, we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection” (Rm 6:5). This ‘likeness of His resurrection’ is Eucharistic man, the “new man…who according to God is created in justice and holiness of truth” (Ep 2:15; 4:24).
This newness for entry comes with certain simple but godly conditions: “The sure foundation of God stands firm, having this seal: the Lord knows who are His; and let every one depart from iniquity who names the Name of the Lord. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth: and some indeed unto honour, but some unto dishonour. If any man therefore shall cleanse himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified and profitable to the Lord, prepared unto every good work. But flee you youthful desires, and pursue justice, faith, charity and peace with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart” (2T 2:19-22).
Again, this newness is what has been promised and is now being fulfilled: “He that sat on the throne, said: Behold, I make all things new. And He said to me: Write. For these words are most faithful and true. And He said to me: It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him that thirsts, I will give of the fountain of the water of life, freely. He that shall overcome shall possess these things, and I will be his God, and he shall be My son” (Apoc 21:5-7).
Entry into the Eternal Virgin Eucharist Church means that we have to leave all things behind, and ‘all things’ means ‘all things.’ Jesus said: “Amen, I say to you, there is no man that has left home or parents or brethren or wife or children, for the Kingdom of God’s sake, who shall not receive much more in this present time, and in the world to come Life Everlasting” (Lk 18:29,30). Leaving all behind is not a destitution in the spiritual or material sense. It is leaving behind the essence of uncertainty so that we “may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings: being made conformable to His death, if by any means I may attain to the resurrection which is from the dead. Not as though I had already attained, or were already perfect: but I follow after, if I may by any means apprehend, wherein I am also apprehended by Christ Jesus. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended, but one thing I do: forgetting the things that are behind and stretching forth myself to those that are before, I press towards the mark, to the prize of the supernal vocation of God in Christ Jesus” (Phil 3:10-14). This leaving all behind is more fully described as entering into the fulness of God. “That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened by His Spirit with might unto the inward man, that Christ may dwell by faith in your hearts that, being rooted and founded in charity, you may be able to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, to know also the charity of Christ, which surpasses all knowledge: that you may be filled unto all the fulness of God. Now to Him Who is able to do all things more abundantly than we desire or understand, according to the power that works in us: to Him be glory in the Church and in Christ Jesus, unto all generations, world without end. Amen” (Ep 3:16-21).
We should not have any fear in taking this step into the Third and Final Testament: “For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of sobriety. Be not you therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but labour with the gospel, according to the power of God , Who has delivered us and called us by His holy calling, not according to our own works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the times of the world, but is now made manifest by the illumination of our Saviour Jesus Christ, Who has destroyed death and has brought to light, life and incorruption by the gospel” (2T 1:7-10).
Who shall be Priests in the Eternal Virgin Eucharist Church?
Jesus said: “Amen I say to you, that you who have followed Me, in the regeneration, when the Son of man shall sit on the seat of His majesty, you also shall sit on twelve seats judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And every one that has left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands for My Name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall possess Life Everlasting. And many that are first shall be last, and the last shall be first” (Mt 19:28-30).
When He says that ‘every one that has left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands for My Name’s sake’ He did not express any exclusions. Therefore the priesthood in the Eternal Virgin Eucharistic Church follows this command. ‘Every one that has ‘left wife’ means celibacy. It means that a married man who in consenting with his wife may leave house, children and lands for the sake of Christ Jesus. We input our personal desire here that the ideal ‘married’ man would be over 60 years of age. His family must be left in a self-sufficient state to carry on in his absence.
All candidates for the priesthood must be either single, or if married, must be blameless, the husband of one wife, sober, prudent, of good behaviour, chaste, given to hospitality, a teacher, not given to wine, no striker, but modest, not quarrelsome, not covetous, but one that rules well his own house, having his children in subjection with all chastity…Not a neophyte (that is, one lately baptized, a young convert), must have a good testimony of them who are without, chaste, not double tongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre, holding the mystery of faith in a pure conscience, having no crime. For they that have ministered well shall purchase to themselves a good degree and much confidence in the faith which is in Christ Jesus (1T 3:1-13).
In addition to the above, no man will be engaged in commerce or entangled with worldly income as St. Paul writes: “No man, being a soldier to God, entangles himself with secular businesses that he may please Him to whom he has engaged himself” (2T 2:4).
The preparation for the Eucharistic Priesthood is completed and all textbooks are in readiness. The fundamental or foundation book is the Holy Bible. We use only the Douay Rheims version, all 73 books: “All scripture, inspired of God, is profitable to teach, to reprove, to correct, to instruct in justice” (2T 3:16). All priests must be completely conversant in Holy Writ: “Carefully study to present yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth” (2T 2:15).
The Eucharistic Priest is priest of God: “If then any be in Christ a new creature, the old things are passed away. Behold all things are made new. But all things are of God, Who has reconciled us to Himself by Christ and has given to us the ministry of reconciliation” (2Co 5:17,18).
The Priests will not condemn any religion. Will not condemn any of the four divided houses of Christianity: Roman Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox or Coptic, as all these call themselves ‘catholic.’ The Eucharistic Church is Catholic, but without any prefix like Roman or Episcopal, or Orthodox, or Coptic. We must bring all who believe in the fulness of Christ into the new Garden of Eden, the Kingdom of God on earth (Mt 6:10). This is not an easy task: “All that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” (2T 3:12). Regardless of the trials and tribulations to come: “Hold the form of sound words which you have heard of me, in faith and in the love which is in Christ Jesus. Keep the good thing committed to thy trust by the Holy Ghost Who dwells in us. Labour as a good soldier of Christ Jesus” (2T1:13,14).
“Now to the king of ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen” (1T 1:17).
