Monday, November 11, 2013: (St. Martin of Tours)
Jesus said: “My people, as you rake up your leaves, think of yourself as pulling in souls when you evangelize them and pray for them. You have seen Me as a Good Shepherd gathering in My sheep. So as you gather in your leaves, think of bringing your faith to all the souls before you. You can also think of all the souls who have gone before you, and are still in purgatory. Think of these souls and pray for them, so they can come to heaven sooner with less suffering. Pray also for the souls who died in the Philippines, and for the homeless to get food and water. By caring for your neighbors, you can store up treasure in heaven.”

Jesus said: “My people, you have been praying for a new bishop for over a year for Rochester, N.Y. Now, you have Bishop Elect Salvatore Matano as an answer to your prayers. It is appropriate after your prayers are answered, to have some prayers of thanksgiving to Me for bringing you a new bishop. It is too early to say how he will interact with your priests, and if he will stop closing churches. You can keep praying that there will be a change of heart in how your diocese has been run. There is an opportunity for some good changes that should make your faithful optimistic.”
