Friday, February 22, 2013: (Chair of St. Peter)
Jesus said: “My people, the Roman Catholic Church is the only true Church that I established when I built My Church on St. Peter and his successors. My Church has Me as the cornerstone, the Pope as your leader, and My sacraments, Mass, and traditions that no other church has. The Scriptures read today give witness to this: (Matt. 16:18-19) ‘And I say to thee, thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build My Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give thee the keys of the Kingdom of heaven; and whatever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.’ This reading shows how I will protect My faithful remnant from the evil ones, even until I return to defeat the evil people and the demons. This also affirms the authority of My priests to forgive sins in the confessional as they represent Me in My forgiveness of sins. This whole Lenten Season leads up to Holy Week when I gave up My life on the cross to atone for all the sins of mankind. It is this sacrifice of My Body and Blood that you remember at every Mass. Rejoice, My faithful, that you belong to Me as a part of My true Church. You are one body with Me.”
