Friday, September 26, 2008: (St. Cosmas and St. Damian)

Jesus said: “My people, I first questioned My apostles on who the people of My day thought I was. Then I asked My apostles ‘Who do you say that I am?’ It was St. Peter who said that I was the Christ, the Son of the Living God. (Matt. 16:16) I told St. Peter that it was My Father in heaven who had revealed this to him. I also instructed My apostles not to tell anyone about My full identity. This was later to be clarified after My death and Resurrection by the power of the Holy Spirit. Today, I am calling My faithful to understand who I am so you can proclaim My identity as a God-man to all of the nations. I am the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity, and I was incarnated as a man so I could offer My life as the most worthy sacrifice for all of mankind’s sins. This is how much I love everyone that I would give up My life for you. This is why you need My large crucifix on the altar to remember that I died for all of you. Another remembrance is My gift of My Real Presence in the consecrated Hosts of My Blessed Sacrament. When you believe in My Real Presence, you have Me with you intimately as if I was standing right by your side in the flesh. Give thanks to your Lord for redeeming your soul from your sins, and for allowing you to enter the gates of heaven that are now open to those who are worthy. Give thanks to Me also for being among you in My Real Presence at Adoration and when you receive Me in Holy Communion.”
Jesus said: “My people, this spilling of blood represents the problem that America has with the major life issues of the death culture that still favor killing babies by abortion, the killing of people in endless wars, and the killing of the elderly by euthanasia. Millions of lives are being lost to abortions with no remorse of this evil act. The gold goblet represents the money incentive for the doctors from the operations. Your perpetual killing in war after war is unwarranted, and it is purposely led by the one world people for financial gain and with another intention of weakening your economy and tying down your military. Euthanasia is not taking many lives, but there is still a death culture attitude that older people are expendable. America has the blood of these killings on your hands, and your country is accountable for this killing of innocent life, especially in the womb. Continue your prayers for this vigil of prayer against abortion. More lives are lost to abortion than all of your wars.”
