Thursday, February 28, 2013:
Jesus said: “My people, in today’s Gospel you see the stark contrast between those people who live for their own pleasures, and those who suffer in this world, but they are rewarded in the next life in heaven. The rich man had an opportunity to help feed Lazarus and to take care of his sores, but the rich man did not even pay attention to Lazarus. There are many people in this life who ignore Me and the poor as well. If they only care for themselves, and do not love Me or their neighbor, then they could be on the path to hell like the rich man. Once the rich man was suffering in hell, he sought some comfort, but received none. The rich man wanted to warn his brothers, but he was not allowed. Even as I died and rose from the dead, there are still people who will not listen to My words of love. If people do not choose to accept and love Me, they are risking the fires of hell. Pray to convert these souls, so they do not have to suffer forever in hell.”

Prayer Group:
Jesus said: “My people, today is the day that Pope Benedict XVI has resigned, and the College of Cardinals will be convened to elect a new Pope. This is an unusual election after a resigning Pope. All of the Roman Catholic Church should be praying for this new Pope, and that the Holy Spirit will oversee this election. This is a pivotal year where many unusual events will be occurring, and this election is one of them.”

Jesus said: “My people, the sequester reduction in government spending was a result of a compromise in raising the National Debt ceiling last year. The Congress and the President voted for this, so they need to see it through. This is a relatively small cut despite all of the rhetoric that used false facts. Your growing National Debt needs to be reduced or your debt will be handed on to your children and grandchildren. You will be seeing even more battles over your National Debt ceiling this year, and your Continuing Budget Resolution. Pray that your government can get its fiscal house in order.”

Jesus said: “My people, some are complaining about cutting $85 billion this year in government spending. But where are the complaints about your Federal Reserve buying $85 billion per month of your bad mortgages and long term Treasury Notes. This is expanding the money supply by writing bonds out of thin air with no backing. They are stealing your mortgages, and keeping interest rates artificially low which is stealing money from savers. Yet no one is complaining or realizing the theft that is being carried out by the central bankers. These thieves will face My wrath and punishment in due time.”

Jesus said: “My people, I have given this message before about a coming division in My Roman Catholic Church. This will be a conflict between a schismatic church and My faithful remnant. The schismatic church will be teaching heresies in worshiping things of the New Age, and that sexual sins are no longer mortal sins. My faithful remnant will be teaching what My apostles taught, and the gates of hell will not prevail against it. Pray that those, who follow the faithful remnant, will find protection at My refuges because they will be persecuted.”

Jesus said: “My people, Lent leads up to My death on the cross on Good Friday of Holy Week. I want My faithful to pray My Stations of the Cross on every Lenten Friday. I suffered and died on the cross for the salvation of souls from their sins. By praying My Stations of the Cross, you can remember how much I love each of you, and how I suffered this crucifixion so souls could be set free from their sins.”

Jesus said: “My people, I hear all of your cries of pain and frustration with your daily life’s trials. I experienced a lot worse pain in verbal abuse as well as My physical suffering in My scourging, carrying the cross, and My crucifixion. I know your human experiences, and you can call on Me to help you. Offer up all of your pain and frustrations to Me, and share it with My suffering on the cross. I share your pain because I am still suffering for all of your current sins. Try to suffer your trials of life without complaining, as I was silent.”

Jesus said: “My people, the whole intention of your Lenten devotions is to repent of your sins, and improve your spiritual life. The best way to repent is to confess your sins to the priest in Confession at least once a month. I actually forgive your sins through the priest’s absolution. You remember the parable of the ‘Prodigal Son’ and how the son finally returned to his father for forgiveness after spending his father’s money on bad living. I am that forgiving father with My arms outstretched ready to receive all sinners. I am merciful, loving, and forgiving, so come to Me so I can restore grace to your soul.”
