Friday, October 29, 2010: (Bishop Clark’s Mass for 43rd Holy Name Anniversary) Jesus said: “My people, the people of this church have been blessed by My Presence for forty-three years as you are seeing My Blessed Sacrament exposed on the altar in the vision. All of My churches have been under attack to be closed. The churches that are still surviving, are a tribute to the parishioners and the pastors of those churches. You have been blessed by a strong pastor who is working hard to keep your church open. Give thanks and praise to Me because My sacramental Presence is what makes your churches holy. It is difficult to suffer the closing of many churches, but it is a sign of how lukewarm many Catholics have become in their faith. Once people stop coming to Sunday Mass, then your faith community is weakened by that loss. Pray for your church members to be strong in their faith, and that they will work to support your church and your pastor in all that is needed to keep your church open. This is one more battle that you face in the temptations of spiritual laziness. Pray that your people will keep strong in their prayer life, and receive My sacraments often.”

Jesus said: “My people, there are predators looking to make money on people in all walks of life. You have seen many scams on Wall Street that have stolen people’s life savings. These evil people have greed and a desire for power in their hearts and souls. Many kinds of fraud are usually found out and captured, but some get away with their theft. I see all of their evil deeds and they will have to stand before Me in judgment. The difficulty is how do My people deal with such evil minded people. There are various ways to steal people’s identity, and everyone is vulnerable to such attacks. The best that you can do is to make it harder for evil ones to access your information. In the end you have to deal with any losses, but losing money is not the end of your life. Money and possessions can be replaced to some extent, but it is your soul that is more important to guard. This is why you still have to love everyone despite their imperfections. Do not let such losses affect your love relationships, but try to reconcile any problems and move on with the rest of your life.”
