Sunday, July 15, 2012:
Jesus said: “My people, at your church you had the joy of listening to a Viet Nam monk, and a chance to help their order in rebuilding their monastery that was destroyed by a typhoon. In today’s Gospel you are again reading about how I sent My apostles out, and how I gave them authority over the demons and protection from poisons. Just as I called My apostles to be missionaries of My Gospel, so I call on My faithful to share their faith with those who are around them. The most precious gift that I give to everyone is your immortal soul that lives on past the grave. This is why your most important work is to reach out to save souls. I have died for all souls so salvation is available to everyone. But each soul should repent of its sins and seek My forgiveness in Confession in order to be saved. Make Me the center of your life by giving your free will over to My Divine Will. It is a joy when you can convert even one sinner to the faith. Just as heaven rejoices over one sinner who repents, I am also grateful to those who enable these conversions. Call on My graces and the power of the Holy Spirit to save souls.”
