Saturday, August 11, 2012: (St. Clare)
Jesus said: “My people, when I was in Nazareth, I read the Scriptures of Isaiah that spoke of the coming Messiah. I told them that today this reading was fulfilled in their hearing. Later, when they understood that I was telling them that I was God’s Son, they wanted to kill Me, but I went through their midst. Because of the lack of faith in My hometown, I could only heal a few people there. It is important to have faith in Me because I offer all people eternal life if they would repent of their sins. You all make choices in life, but choosing to follow Me is not only a choice on earth, but it is an eternal choice in the next life between heaven and hell. I keep telling people that this life is short, and it is not your eternal destination. Instead, this life is a trial to show Me in your actions that you truly love Me and your neighbor as yourself. This is why in order to follow Me, you must imitate My life of holiness in following My Commandments, and repent of your sins in Confession. I will help lead My faithful to heaven through the grace of My sacraments. Listen to My words in the Gospel, and be saved.”
