Saturday, December 6, 2014: (Rose Guido’s Funeral-Joe’s mother)
Jesus said: “My people, I know how difficult it is to lose a mother who was the matron of the family. All of the people at the funeral were giving testimony to Rose’s life by their presence. The best gift that she gave her family was the gift of life. If the children reflect on this, they would not be alive if it was not for their mother giving birth to them. She nurtured all of her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren with her love and attention to their meals and their education. It is good to have Masses and prayers said for her soul. These souls also want you to remember them with their pictures and your visits to their graves.”

(Second Sunday of Advent) Jesus said: “My son, you remember when you were in Israel at the very spot that St. John the Baptist was baptizing people, long ago. You even saw people being baptized there by total immersion in the water. I, Myself, was baptized by St. John when the Blessed Trinity was manifested for all to hear. St. John the Baptist prepared My way, and he called the people to repent of their sins, and to seek My forgiveness by being baptized. All of you are sinners, and you are all in need of My forgiveness of your sins. It is good to come to Confession at least once a month, especially before Christmas. Cleansing your souls, gives you a pure soul which you need to guard from the temptations of the devil. Advent is a time of prayer and penance. Before I did anything big in My ministry, I retreated to the mountains to pray and fast. You can also take time in your prayer room to pray, and at times you can visit Me in Adoration.”
