Monday, January 21, 2008: (St. Agnes)

Jesus said: “My people, in today’s Gospel the Pharisees were critical of My apostles because they did not fast as the Pharisees did. The disciples of St. John the Baptist fasted as well. I told the Pharisees that My apostles could not fast while the bridegroom is still with them. But once I leave, they will fast also. In some instances people are too focused on the letter of the law instead of the spirit of love in the law. I did not come to change the law, but to fulfill it. So it is in the vision. You look at the physical bread and wine in complete focus, but without the eyes of faith and the Spirit, you cannot realize the Presence of My very Body and Blood that you receive in Holy Communion. You are made up of body and soul, so your soul needs to be fed with spiritual food. By receiving Me in Communion, your soul is full and satisfied with My love and My very Presence. You are aware of that which you can see with your eyes, but always be conscious of the spiritual things around you that you can see with your heart and spirit. You are truly in a world where the desires of the body are in a battle with the desires of the soul. You also see a battle of good and evil going on around you. Follow My love in My Commandments so you are constantly loving Me and your neighbor as yourself. Give good example to others in your good deeds and work to bring peace among mankind. Work also to save souls from hell wherever you are.”
