Saturday, December 18, 2010:
Jesus said: “My people, during the Christmas Season you do a lot of shopping to share gifts on Christmas. You can think of the Magi who brought Me gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh, befitting a king. As you see the gold tabernacle in the vision, you can think of how you bring Me gifts of your prayers and good deeds, but I give you the gift of Myself every time that you receive Me in Holy Communion. In this way we are also sharing gifts with each other, but more in a spiritual way than in material things. Rejoice in this season of Advent as you share your good will with your relatives and friends, in addition to your physical gifts. When you pray with each other, you are asking Me to share in your joy of worshiping Me as the infant in the crib.”

Jesus said: “My people, you are seeing unusually cold and snowy weather, and increasing costs for your fuel in gasoline. There has been an increase in world demand for oil and the value of your dollar has also been dropping. Your government has been spending much more money than it is collecting in taxes, and soon your economy will have to survive without any more stimulus giveaways. As I showed you these trucks, think if they have problems delivering your food and gas to your stores. The drivers are also dealing with higher fuel costs and poor weather. This is another reason to have some extra food and fuel available in case you may face some shortages caused by missed truck deliveries. It is one thing to help poor people with gifts of food, but imagine when many people do not have enough food to eat or fuel for their cars. Many are having hard economic times with fewer jobs or less paying jobs. They do not have many reserves to get through continuing money shortages. Pray that people help each other with their needs, before people get desperate to steal what they need.”
