Friday, April 1, 2011:
Jesus said: “My people, in this vision I am showing you how some people worship the things of this world as sports, gold, and famous people as their ‘gods’ instead of Me. When you make anything else more important than Me, then you have made that thing your ‘god’ and you are sinning by idol worship. If you spend all or most of your time on things and concerns of the world, then you are not giving Me enough time in prayer to acknowledge your love for Me. I do not force My love on you, but those, who refuse to accept Me into their lives, could face the consequences of being judged to hell for their rejection of Me, or ignoring Me. I love all of you so much that I died for you. Loving your Creator and giving your thanks to Me for all that I have given you, should be your least response. Those, who truly love Me, can show it in their actions as in prayer and good works for their neighbor. Your priest made a good suggestion to even remember to love yourself because you are made in My image and likeness. You love Me the most, but without knowing how to love yourself, it is true that it will be difficult to love your neighbor. You love yourself not out of pride, but because you are one of My creations and worthy of love. Just as you love your body and soul despite your imperfections, so you should love everyone else in the same way despite their imperfections. By loving your neighbor as you love yourself, then you will be obeying the second part of My great commandment.”

Jesus said: “My people, when you take time to adore My Blessed Sacrament, you give honor and glory to your Lord. It is My great gift to you that I have left Myself present to you in all the tabernacles of the world. You may have some churches that are open most of the time, so you can come and visit Me in quiet contemplation. Remember to leave five to ten minutes for contemplative prayer so I can speak to the quiet of your heart and soul. By listening for My Word, I can give you proper direction and discernment for the many choices that you make every day. Let Me lead you down the right path toward heaven, and be open in your heart to do what I ask of you in your mission. Sometimes I call you to do things that you may not be comfortable with, but many times this leap of faith will bring you more graces than your own plans. Be ready to share your faith with everyone.”
