Jesus said: “My people, you can see in the Gospel that the religious leaders of My time did not realize that God’s ways are not man’s ways. They did not realize that I was born in Bethlehem in King David’s line, even though I was brought up in Nazareth. Even Scripture talks about the Nazarene. So it is in your day. You know that your life should be focused on Me, but you allow the concerns of the world to cloud your mind and distract you from your mission, which is to know, love, and serve Me. Try to imitate My life of simplicity, humility, a good prayer life, and following My Commandments. When you love Me and your neighbor, you should show it in your actions and thoughts.”

Jesus said: “My people, this vision is a picture of a flame of faith that is so delicate, and it can be snuffed out by man’s sin and the devil’s temptations. Once a person’s faith is snuffed out as the lukewarm, it takes a miracle or a lot of prayer and fasting to relight that flame of faith again. This is why your Sunday Mass attendance is down because so many people have lost their way by allowing the worldly distractions to detour them from their path to heaven. This is why a faithful person needs to be close to Me in their daily prayer life, Mass, and My sacraments. You have the grace to keep your flame of faith burning brightly, but you must give your will over to doing My mission every day if you want to reach heaven. Think of yourselves as My prayer warriors and My evangelists, so by your efforts and My grace, you can relight the flame of faith in as many souls as possible.”
