Sunday, July 18, 2010:
Jesus said: “My people, this Gospel has many facets to understand. Martha is to be commended for caring for everyone’s needs of hospitality. One thing, that many of you do, is complain of your duties that at times seem burdensome. The body needs its own rest in short naps or sleeping overnight to gain back its energy. What may be missing in some lives is the fact that your soul or spirit is also seeking its rest as well. Your soul can only find its true rest and peace in Me. This deep prayer life in contemplative prayer is what is needed for your soul when you converse with Me. Whenever you receive Me in Holy Communion, or come and make visits to Me in Adoration, or at My tabernacle, you are united intimately with My love in My Real Presence in My Eucharist. It is this rest of the soul that is what I referred to as the better portion that Mary had chosen. She had My Presence and My teaching available as she served Me spiritually in her attention to My words. You can serve Me also in helping your neighbor with their physical needs, but even more importantly you can serve their spiritual needs in your evangelization efforts. The whole person needs to be healed both in bodily needs and the soul’s spiritual needs. The most important mission is to save the souls in heaven away from the evil that leads people to hell. Strive to be with Me in heaven by serving Me as both Martha and Mary did.”

Jesus said: “My people, you have had only two small named storms come in on the Texas-Mexican border. Your scientists are expecting a more active hurricane season than last year, but the activity usually increases more in August and September. Temperatures are somewhat warmer which gives fuel to more violent storms. Any more storms in the Gulf of Mexico could cause any oil slicks to be pushed inland. Since the oil spill has been stopped, there has been little news on the plans to put a permanent plug in this previous gusher. Pray for a continued success to keep this well plugged, and for minimum damage to your operating rigs from any future storms.”
