Sunday, December 30, 2007: (Holy Family Sunday)

Jesus said: “My people, the family is the core of your social units, but it is being attacked on all sides from the evil one and your cultural traditions. Unfortunately, worldly things and secular events are overshadowing your spiritual traditions, and Christmas is just one example. Your husbands and wives have become lax in their prayers as a family, and when both work, it puts a strain on love relationships and taking care of the children. Many of your individual desires are placed over the good of the family, and this is why you are seeing so many divorces. Love can grow cold unless there is an underlying faith commitment and a desire for what is best for the family to survive. There are many pressures from the workplace, paying bills, and keeping up with all of your activities outside of the house. When you pray with Me as a part of your family, you will have the graces to overcome difficulties as job losses, illnesses, or deaths in the family. Pray for your families, because every divorce divides My human family, and you need love to keep your peace.”
