Monday, July 11, 2011: (St. Benedict)
Jesus said: “My people, you have been in a monastery to see how the monks sing, pray, and do their chores. Even some monasteries have retreats, or have bakeries to sell bread. The monastic life can be a difficult life for those who are more worldly, but the dedication to prayer and good works is very good for the soul. Even people, who live in the world, should find time for Me in your prayer life. Giving Me a part of your day is how you can keep connected in your love relationship with Me. Your daily Mass, prayers, and Adoration may be more than most people do, but it is still beautiful to Me how you can keep faithful to Me. Even at your Adoration time, I asked you to spend five or ten minutes in silent contemplative prayer of listening to Me talk to your soul. When you live with the noise of the world every day, it is hard to focus on your discernment of carrying out My mission in your life. You are constantly petitioning Me with your prayer requests, but you need to be quiet at times so I can talk to your heart. I ask you also to allow Me to be Master of your lives, so you can keep your focus on Me and let Me be the center of your lives. When you let Me help you in carrying your daily cross, truly your burden will be lighter, and you will have My peace in your soul.”

Jesus said: “My people, many people are curious how you could go up to heaven and where heaven is. My apostles watched Me ascend into the clouds as I returned to heaven. Moses also was drawn up into heaven without anyone seeing him. Elijah was drawn up into heaven by a fiery chariot. (4 Kings 2:11-12) This is why Moses and Elijah appeared with Me at My Transfiguration on Mount Tabor. Jacob’s Ladder (Gen. 28:10-19) was also a mystical way portrayed in the Bible to show how you could keep rising on each step with one of your good deeds. By striving to lead a good life by one step at a time, My people can also climb their spiritual ladders to greet Me in heaven for their judgment.”

On the Warning: Jesus said: “My son, you have asked for a confirmation of how long a time it will be that people will be allowed for conversions after the Warning occurs. I have told you in previous messages that there will be a short time after the Warning for My faithful to help bring the fallen away Christians back to the sacraments. This time would not be very long because the Warning will come right before the major events that would lead up to the declaration of the Antichrist. This will also not be too short a time in order to give people a chance to learn the faith or be reconverted. The six weeks that I have mentioned to you is about the right length of time to accommodate the evangelization of souls. Once you see the Warning occur, you could have your family come to the same refuge. Once souls have time for conversions, then you will see the events lead up to the declaration of the Antichrist and the beginning of the tribulation.”
