Monday, November 10, 2008: (St. Leo the Great)

Jesus said: “My people, how much I love you, and how I long for you to return to Me like the Prodigal Son. At the first sign of repentance I would lavish you with all of My graces and blessings. You are My faithful people who return to Me in Confession so I can cleanse your souls of sin. All of you are sinners, but few want to admit it and desire Me in love to make amends. You do not want to be found at your judgment when I would say to you ‘I do not know you.’ When you pray daily and confess your sins, I will see your sincere love. But those, who just give Me lip service, truly do not really love Me and these people are on the broad road to hell. Follow My example of love in the Scriptures and you will have My peace and love in your soul. Your time in life is short, so make the best use of your time here by loving Me and loving your neighbor in your actions.”
Jesus said: “My people, this physical falling apart of a church represents how some parts of My Church are weakening in their faith. The numbers coming to Sunday Mass are fewer, indicating how some souls are losing their faith. Some churches have to share priests because of a priest shortage. Even though you see this weakness, the ones, who are faithful, have become stronger to pray for those that are falling away. When you come to My Blessed Sacrament in the monstrance, you believe in My Real Presence, and you are witnessing who I am as St. Peter did when I asked ‘Who do people say that I am?’ Trust in My spiritual and physical healing when you pray to Me, for I will answer your prayer in My time and for whatever is best for your soul, or for the person that you are praying for. Give praise and thanks to Me for strengthening your faith every day.”
