Friday, August 16, 2013: (St. Stephen of Hungary)
Jesus said: “My people, the people of My time questioned Me if it was legal to divorce their wives. I explained to them that a marriage between a man and a woman was meant to be a life long commitment to each other, as I joined Adam and Eve. They quoted Moses who gave them the authority to divorce their wives. Only in situations where the marriage is not lawful because of a precondition, could there be a divorce. In certain circumstances where one spouse is overly abusive, or an addict to alcohol or drugs, it would be hard to tolerate such a life. This could be considered an impediment in a marriage. Each spouse may have some imperfections, but spouses should work to compromise any differences, so the marriage could be preserved. Some people are too quick to want a divorce without giving the marriage a chance to work. My Church does accept annulments, but they are at times given too freely. It is better to be married in the Church as a sacrament, instead of living together in fornication. My people need to imitate My love in their marriages, and they should not just seek their own way. Marriage is a commitment to give your life as a gift to your spouse with Me in the middle. By focusing more on love between the spouses, you can overlook any petty differences.”

Jesus said: “My people, there are a good number of people who are so taken up with the latest computers, tablets, phones, and other hand-held devices. It is easy to become addicted to playing with these devices, and they consume a lot of your valuable time. My son, you have learned this lesson when you were taken up with writing computer programs. The biggest lesson that you learned, was not to let anything control you and your time. Without any control over how you spend your time, you will not have any time for Me in prayer. Your experience with My peace in Adoration is much more satisfying than working with the newest electrical device. Every device that you craved for, only lasted until the next new device would come out. This craving for things shows you that these things will become obsolete, and in the end, it is your soul’s destination that is more important. I created people as an extension of My love that I wanted to share. Your soul craves to be with Me more than your body desires earthly things that are not important. My faithful can share their love with their family and friends, and you can share your faith experience with those who you can evangelize to love Me. There is a great spiritual satisfaction in bringing souls to know and love Me. I love all of you so much, and I am pleased when you can love Me in return by your own free will.”
