Saturday, July 31, 2010: (St. Ignatius of Loyala)
Jesus said: “My people, just as I asked My apostles to go out to all the nations and spread My Good News of salvation, so I call on all of My disciples in faith of today to also go out to all the nations and evangelize souls to faith in Me. It is not always possible for everyone to go out to share their faith with those in foreign lands. There are some among you who are missionaries that have answered My call to go to foreign countries. For these servants of Mine, My people should honor their work and help them with your prayers and donations. They have given up everything to follow Me and the laborer is worth his wage. I have also called many messengers and prophets to spread My Word of faith and hope among the people. As you read about Jeremiah, he lived among people who wanted to take his life for telling the words of My chastisement of Israel. He was protected from harm when those in power realized that he was only following My words. My prophets of today also may be criticized and threatened because their message of My justice may be difficult to understand. Yet I give you hope in My protection at My refuges where the evil ones will not harm you. Some may be martyred for their faith, but follow My angels and they will provide for your needs at My refuges.”

Jesus said: “My people, I have given up My life on earth so that all of you could share in My love and My sacrifice of My life, so your souls could be washed in My Most Precious Blood. I am asking My faithful if you could die for Me if you had to choose between your life or your belief in Me. It is not easy to accept a martyr’s death in this world, but you would have more graces and you would gain heaven instantly if you so suffered for Me. My martyrs shared their suffering with Me on My cross. Give praise and thanks for the many saints who have given up their lives to Me for the sake of My Gospel. You have felt a deep sense of these saints’ presence in your heart and soul. Give honor and thanks to these saints as you pray to them as intercessors for your prayers. This area is holy ground by their sacrifices. This will be a refuge of protection in the coming days of trial. Even if you are not called to be a martyr in this life, you can offer up all of your sufferings as a ‘dry’ martyr.”

Camille: “This whole concept of martyrdom is not anything that I understood when I was on the earth. I heard of saints, but I did not know or appreciate what they suffered on earth. In my little faith I doubt that I could have died for such a cause. Now that I am in heaven, I would do whatever the Lord asked of me. God bless you all who have a deep faith in Jesus throughout your whole lives. These martyrs have a higher place in heaven than I am because of their great faith. You all should strive for the higher places in heaven.”
