Sunday, November 13, 2011:
Jesus said: “My people, today’s Gospel reading was a test of using the talents that I have given to everyone. Some people use their talents to provide for their families and the good works of charity. Other people either are lazy in not using their talents, or they are selfish, and they do everything for themselves only. Just as the productive servants gained their just reward, so My faithful, who use their talents for My mission, will also receive their reward in heaven. The one, who buried his talent, had that taken away, and he was cast outside to wail and gnash his teeth. So those people, who reject Me and are lazy in not following My laws, will receive punishment as a consequence for their actions. The vision in the confessional is all about facing Me at the judgment when everyone will have to make an accounting for all the actions of their lives. It is better to settle your accounts with Me in Confession than to suffer a harsh punishment at your death and judgment. Continue to be prepared for your death by keeping a pure soul with frequent Confession.”

(Rose Grassi Mass intention) Jesus said: “My people, Rose was a very proper lady, and she was very charitable in her good works. Raoul and Rose were very generous in funding Mt. Carmel House as a Catholic hospice. This was a model for other homes as well. The first reading truly described her wonderful ways of helping people. All of My faithful Carmelites will receive their reward for all their prayers and good works. Give thanks and praise to Me for this gift of Rose’s life.”
