Dei Verbum at Mass

Praised be Jesus Christ!! Now and Forever!!
The first Reading from today's Holy Mass comes from Joel 4: 12-21 and should serve as a stern warning for those of us today. When you think of it you would think it was written for us. I realize that the Church is on a rotating liturgical cycle and around this time every year we see more of the prophets and warnings. My question though is pretty simple. If as we believe, I certainly do, that the Holy Mass is the Church's highest form of prayer and if any good prayer is a communication between God and the people and if the Sacred Scripture is Dei Verbum then could not God be telling us something and we just do not want to hear? If God was trying to tell us something would He not use the Bride of Christ in order to reach more faithful? This can get a bit speculative so I realize that it must be examined under solid teaching. I am not a theologian or an apologist but I am a man of prayer who has noticed some very interesting- coincidences in the past. Let me know what you think.
Omnia Pro Iesu Per Mariam!!

"Through divine revelation, God chose to show forth and communicate Himself and the eternal decisions of His will regarding the salvation of men. That is to say, He chose to share with them those divine treasures which totally transcend the understanding of the human mind.
As a sacred synod has affirmed, God, the beginning and end of all things, can be known with certainty from created reality by the light of human reason (see Rom. 1:20); but teaches that it is through His revelation that those religious truths which are by their nature accessible to human reason can be known by all men with ease, with solid certitude and with no trace of error, even in this present state of the human race."
