Friday, May 10, 2013: (St. Damien)
Jesus said: “My people, I am showing you this heater as a symbol for heating up your hearts to inspire you to spread My love and My Gospel of love. You could see how I inspired St. Paul to carry on with his missionary efforts, even despite his many trials and persecutions. In the Gospel I also likened your earthly trials to a woman’s labor in childbirth. But after the birth, there is great joy that a child has been born into the world. So with My faithful of today, I wish to set your hearts on fire with My love so you too, will be inspired to share your faith by converting souls to the faith. You can see even how St. Damien was set on fire as well to help the lepers when he was adoring Me in My Blessed Sacrament in the early morning hours. He even worked with the lepers so closely that he became a leper himself. This joy and determination can only come from the Holy Spirit and My help to be a missionary. I give you all the graces that you will need to accomplish the mission that I have given you for your life.”

Jesus said: “My people, you know that a cross is a symbol of being a Christian. The crucifix with a corpus on it, has an even deeper meaning that represents a Christian who is willing to suffer persecution for his or her faith. You know that I died for all of mankind by being crucified on a cross. Until there is a sacrifice of My Blood on the cross, the cross itself has little meaning. So it is with My faithful. You need to be able to risk persecution and endure some suffering for your faith if you are going to be a real Christian. It is easy to say the words that you love Me, but I need to see actions that show your true sincerity in living your faith. You may have to go out of your comfort zone to help someone. You may want to give up some of your time to pray your rosaries, or spend time visiting Me in My tabernacle. It is ‘Christ crucified’ that you need to imitate and follow. If the worldly people persecuted Me, they will do the same to you. Be willing to stand up for what you believe in Me, even if your life is threatened.”
