Friday, November 22, 2013: (St. Cecilia)
Jesus said: “My people, you are seeing a heart shape in the vision which represents love. Then I showed you My Sacred Heart which is a greater representation of My personal love. This was even ultimately shown in My death on the cross for all the sins of mankind. In the readings you saw the reverence for building a Temple, and in the Gospel I also called St. Peter and My apostles to build My Church. I defended the Temple from the vendors, as you remember that I have great zeal for My house, and it consumes Me. You have seen many beautiful church buildings, but My Church is found the most in the souls of My people, both in the clergy and the laity. This is why it is important to build up My Church in bringing your family to Me, and in reaching out to convert souls to the faith. You need to encourage your families to attend Sunday Mass, pray daily, and come to Confession at least once a month. If you do not teach the faith to your children, how are they going to teach their children? Even you grandparents need to be a good example to your grandchildren, and continue building up My Church. I am depending on My prayer warriors to keep the faith strong in your families. When you love Me, you want to share My love with everyone.”

Jesus said: “My people, your penance from your Confession may be a few prayers from your priest today. In former years, your penances would be much more vigorous like wearing hair shirts, or possibly more physical suffering. You could make an extra penance of fasting from something you like, as not eating desserts or sweet things for the day. Doing a bread and water fast may be more difficult. Fasting should be done with the intention of controlling your bodily desires by the desires of the soul to please Me. It is when you allow your bodily desires to perform sinful actions, that you offend Me in your sins. The more you can control your body with penances, the easier it will be to avoid the devil’s temptations. Learn from your sinful mistakes, so you can avoid them in the future. Work on your frequent sins to understand how you fell into sin. You will be attacked more when you are in occasions of sin, or when you are tired and weak. By anticipating how the devil will attack you, you can be prepared to defend your soul from committing other sins. Know that I am always willing to forgive your sins, because I want to receive you into My loving arms. Do not fear, avoid, or put off Confession, but see this sacrament as a means to keep your soul clean and ready to meet Me at your judgment.”

Jesus said: “My people, I am showing you the marriage of a man and a woman in the Church for two reasons. The first reason is that this is the proper way to be married. Living together in fornication is not a proper marriage. Living in homosexual acts is also not a proper marriage. The second reason is that this marriage is a symbol of My people as the bride and I am the Groom who protects My Church. Marriage is a promotion of the preciousness of life because the children are born into an environment of love. Protect My babies in the womb from those who want to kill them in abortion. Protect the elderly from those who want to kill them with euthanasia. Pray for peace to protect the people from being killed in your manufactured wars. Pray for all the people who are being killed by disasters, by vaccines, and by viruses. Life is truly precious, and you are all created in My Image with free will. I want all souls to love Me and come to heaven. Keep praying for all souls that could be saved from hell. Also do not forget to pray for the poor souls in purgatory. My Communion of Saints is a union of My faithful on earth, the souls in purgatory, and My souls that are saints in heaven. Your soul’s life is the most important, and you need to keep your soul on the right path to heaven.”
