Sunday, February 2, 2014: (Presentation of the Lord in the Temple)
Jesus said: “My people, Simeon was promised by the Holy Spirit that he would not die until he had seen Me. He was grateful to see Me, and he said I could dismiss him now that this promise had been fulfilled. He also spoke of My coming Kingdom, and how My Blessed Mother’s heart would be pierced by a sword of sorrow at My death. Anna also blessed Me in her patient endurance at the Temple for many years. This represents the Fourth Joyful Mystery of the rosary right after My birth. You pray this every day, so you know this well. This Jewish custom is close to My sacrament of Baptism as you bless most people as infants. I came to save the lost sheep of Israel, but I also came to die for all souls, both Jews and the Gentiles. Keep close to Me in your daily prayers, and I will be watching over you.”

Jesus said: “My people, there are some people who schedule sports games on Sunday and Saturday so the players cannot get to Sunday Mass. When you defy coming to Mass on Sunday without being sick, you are worshiping your sports more than Me. Today, you have your Super Bowl Football game, and you can remember one message that I gave you on this subject. I said if I were to appear at this game, your people would continue to watch the game instead of looking at Me. You are not to make anything in this world into an idol that you would worship before Me. The first Commandment is that you should have no strange gods before Me. Today, sports, money, and possessions are becoming the idols and gods that the people in the world worship before Me. You should remember Me every day in your prayers, because I should be at the center of your life more than anything else. Those, who are faithful to Me over the years, will have their reward with Me in heaven.”
