Saturday, January 14, 2012:
Jesus said: “My people, as you observe various plants and animals, you can see some imperfections in their makeup. In the same way you may have some unusual deformities in your hands, bones, teeth, or another part of your body. Some of these things are inherited from your parents, or it may have been a birth defect. You accept many of these things, unless you need operations to fix them. In your soul you have inherited the consequences of Adam’s sin, as original sin that is forgiven with your Baptism. You also have inherited a weakness to sin, which means you are all sinners. Only Myself and My Blessed Mother were without sin on earth. This is why St. John in his letter wrote that those, who claim they have no sin, are liars. Some people think that they are self-righteous, but in their hearts they should humble themselves to seek My forgiveness in frequent Confession. Admitting that you have sinned, requires you to be humbled in the face of My perfection. By coming to Me in Confession, you can seek My forgiveness, and ask Me to pardon your offenses. The priest will give you absolution, and your soul will be filled with the grace of this sacrament. Keep your soul cleansed of sin so you are pleasing to Me in your appearance. You cleanse your body and you keep changing your soiled clothing. All the more reason to have a good appearance in your soul as well. Be grateful that I have given you My sacrament of Penance that allows you to keep your soul cleansed of sin. Truly I am the doctor to heal your souls from all of your sins.”
