Saturday, October 19, 2013:
Jesus said: “My people, in the Mass you use bread and wine that are consecrated by the priest into My Body and Blood. But there are some people who want to drink too much wine, and they can become drunk with alcohol. Once you drink too much alcohol, you do not have control of your mind and your senses. Some even get violent in such a state of drunkenness. Drinking a little is appropriate, but drinking to excess becomes sinful because of your lack of control, especially when you are driving. If you drink and drive, you are endangering the lives of others on the road. Those, who drink to excess often, can become addicted to alcohol, and they become alcoholics. Remember also that there are demons connected to such addictions. It is not easy to heal an alcoholic because their craving for alcoholic drinks is hard to ignore. If someone wants to be healed, it takes a personal choice to stop and get help. It also takes prayer and fasting to deal with the demon or demons that are controlling this person. To heal alcoholics you cannot enable them by giving them money or access to alcoholic drinks. It takes tough love to help them, but if they do not want to help themselves, your job will be more difficult. Not only does drinking endanger a person’s health, but it also endangers the soul that a person could lose to the demons in hell. When you have someone with this addiction in your family, you need to pray and fast to cast out these demons. Help these people the most that you can, because they can cause much harm to those people around them. Addictions are one of the worst threats to your soul, so work to not allow anything to control you.”
