Sunday, June 23, 2013:
Jesus said: “My people, I asked My apostles: ‘Who do people say that I am?’ After some remarks about Me being St. John the Baptist, Elijah, or one of the prophets, St. Peter spoke up: ‘Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.’ I commended St. Peter for his understanding, but it was the Holy Spirit that inspired him. This question of who I am should be answered by everyone. If you truly know who I am, then you would love Me, and honor My Real Presence in My consecrated Host. Hopefully, people should come to know Me before they die and meet Me at their judgment. It is one thing to know who I am, but it is another to act on this knowledge. Until you move this knowledge from your brain down into your heart, then you do not fully appreciate who I am as a Person. If you truly love Me, then you will love your neighbor, and invite them to know and love Me. Love is something that you share, and it is not meant just to keep it to yourself. This is why I love everyone, and I want My faithful to love everyone also, even your enemies.”

(Latin Mass) Jesus said: “My people, My apostles were just starting to go out to the neighboring villages to share the Good News that the Kingdom of God was at hand in Me. I knew they needed courage and the grace of the Holy Spirit to do their mission for Me. It was when they were gathered together after My Resurrection, that I breathed on them and I told them: ‘Receive the Holy Spirit, whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained.’ (John 20:22) Once My apostles received the gifts of the Holy Spirit, they were able to speak out without fear as witnesses to My death and Resurrection as the salvation for all of mankind. My faithful of today have also received the gifts of the Holy Spirit at their Baptism and their Confirmation. You also are being called to the same mission of going out to all the nations to preach My Good News. Call on Me to send you My angels to help you in evangelizing souls from the devil. Have no fear as I am with you always.”
