Saturday, January 12, 2013:
Jesus said: “My people, in today’s Gospel St. John the Baptist makes a true act of humility when he said: ‘He must increase while I must decrease.’ In essence St. John knew that his mission was drawing to a close while My mission would be the center of attention. This humility in serving Me is an example to everyone. Those, who desire to love Me and come to heaven, must accept Me as Master of their lives. This means that My faithful need to decrease their own way of running their lives, so I can increase in leading their souls to follow My Divine Will. Once you truly have died to self, then you can begin a new life in the Spirit where I and the Holy Spirit will be leading you. In the reading of St. John he calls all of you to avoid idols. My people need to worship only Me and not any gods of this world like money, sports, or personal fame. By coming close to Me in prayer and Confession, you will have the strength to carry out the mission that I have given to each person.”
