Monday, January 14, 2013:
Jesus said: “My people, you are starting a new season of Ordinary Time after celebrating the Christmas Season. In the Gospel I am continuing the plea of St. John the Baptist of ‘Repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand.’ I called Simon, Andrew, James, and John to follow Me, and they would be fishers of men instead of their profession of catching fish. It was easier for them to follow Me when they heard St. John the Baptist call Me the ‘Lamb of God.’ They knew of the Scriptures of a coming Redeemer, so they were eager to follow Me. As they saw My miracles, they came to believe in Me more. There is a fast transition from My birth to My starting ministry at thirty. There are few accounts of My early years except when I was found in the Temple teaching when I was twelve. I was with St. Joseph and My Blessed Mother in Nazareth, and I was subject to them in obedience. Today, I also call My faithful to be evangelists of souls to follow Me. Saving souls is the purpose of My mission on earth, and it is also the mission of My faithful as well.”

Jesus said: “My people, the Kingdom of God is present in My Presence. I came onto the earth as a man so I could offer Myself up as an unblemished sacrifice for the sins of all of mankind. I became a man on earth, but without sin, and this is why I am a pure sacrifice. During My three years of ministry, I revealed through My life how I wanted My faithful to live without sin. I showed My love for the people in My cures, and I even multiplied the food in a deserted place so they would not starve on the way home. When I healed people on the Sabbath, and I criticized the Scribes and Pharisees, this is why they wanted to kill Me. These religious leaders finally tried Me for blasphemy when I truthfully declared that I was God’s Son. Everything, that was foretold about Me, was carried out to fulfill all of the Biblical prophecies. Even before I was crucified, I gave you Myself in the first Mass at the Last Supper of the Passover Meal. The bread and wine are consecrated by the priest into My Body and Blood. I am with you always in My tabernacle, where you can adore Me and worship your Lord. Give thanks to Me for offering My life so that all of My faithful could enter the gates of heaven.”
