Saturday, April 14:
Jesus said: “My people, when you are suffering the trials of life, I ask you to invite Me into your souls so I can calm you down from all of your fears and anxieties. It is not easy to deal with all of life’s troubles, but with faith in Me and My graces for you, you can endure anything. In the Gospel reading you have seen how even My apostles did not want to believe that I rose from the dead, even after being told by the women and the two disciples who saw Me in My Body on the road to Emmaus. It was not until they saw Me in person that they believed in My Resurrection. I told them that they believed in Me because they saw Me, but blessed are those people who believe in Me without seeing My Body. It is one thing to believe in Me with your words, but it is a better witness by your actions in your good works. My apostles were blessed by the Holy Spirit on Pentecost, and their infusion of grace and belief in My Name allowed them to heal the crippled man. The Jewish leaders wanted to punish them, but they warned them not to speak in My Name. The two apostles were later beaten for preaching My Name in defiance of the Jewish leaders’ orders. They rejoiced that they could suffer to spread My Gospel. The people of today also want to criticize My faithful for preaching in My Name in public. They have forced My Commandments out of your public buildings and have stopped prayer in your schools. You are persecuted for protesting abortions, and you can be imprisoned for hate crimes for speaking out against homosexual acts that I consider an abomination. My faithful can show Me your love by evangelizing souls. Preach My Good News that I died for your souls to be saved from your sins. Preach that as I resurrected, so My faithful also will be resurrected at the last judgment. Rejoice in My love as My Easter people.”
