Thursday, February 7, 2013:
Jesus said: “My people, every day and every Sunday you have a miracle at Mass when the bread and wine are transubstantiated by the priest at the Consecration into My own Body and Blood. You have Me coming down on your altars at every Mass. Even with My Word and My Real Presence shared with the people at Mass, still there are a good number of Catholics who do not come to every Sunday Mass. If you are a true Christian, you need to obey My Third Commandment which makes it a law to worship Me on Sunday, especially at Mass for Roman Catholics. It is important to work on your children and grandchildren to see the necessity of attending Sunday Mass. My Church teaches that it is a mortal sin to miss Sunday Mass when you are not sick. You can even attend Saturday night Mass for your Sunday obligation. If work, sports, or entertainment keep you from coming to Mass, then you need to adjust your life to honor Me more than your money or comforts. I am the one whom you should worship, and not any of your earthly gods or idols. My faithful need to evangelize the lukewarm and those who have not heard My Word so their souls can be saved, and put on the right path to heaven.”

Prayer Group:
St. Therese said: “My son, I heard your prayer to help you with making this third edition of your DVD talk. You started my novena of 24 Glory-Be’s, but you need to remember to say it every day. I know you pray your rosaries and Divine Mercy Chaplet, but
you need to remember your intention for this DVD and pray your novena also. Maybe you could set out a note to remind you. I have helped you on your other DVDs, and I will help you with this one. You will be fortunate to have another three years, so this could be your last DVD.”

Jesus said: “My people, I have been preparing you for this Lent for a week or so. It is good to have some plans of how you could improve your spiritual life. You have some penances that you do each year, but this time you could try some new or additional things, as more spiritual reading. When you read about the saints, the Bible, or other books as your Imitations of Christ, you can get closer to Me. I appreciate all of your attempts to do better in Lent. Some of these things could be continued all year.”

Jesus said: “My people, as another Lenten suggestion, you could try to help others more by going out of your comfort zone to do a little extra for someone in need of help. Look a little harder at people around you to do more by volunteering things without being asked. You could start with some acts of kindness in your own house with your relatives, or friends. You could even reach out to help strangers in their needs.”

Jesus said: “My people, giving alms or donations to charities and the Church could be another focus of sharing your money with the poor as your Food shelf, or helping with extra Church causes. Many people have money for entertainment and eating out at restaurants. Take some of that money and share it, and you will receive merits in heaven. Some people make only token donations, so the more you can give, the more I will see your sincerity in your help.”

Jesus said: “My people, it is not easy to bear the daily burdens of living this human condition. By offering up all of your little troubles and trials, you can gain redemptive graces for those people who you are praying for. Remember not to waste any pain, but offer up your sufferings to help others. By doing even these little things in life, you can make big steps in improving your spirituality.”

Jesus said: “My people, at times you buy new clothes, new furniture, or new cars. Instead of just discarding your old things to the garbage pickup, you could clean them up, and donate them to charity organizations so someone could use your old possessions. This is just another way of helping your poor people without always thinking of a tax write-off. When you do things out of love for others, I notice the intention in your heart. Be ready to reach out to help others in any way that you can.”

Jesus said: “My people, do not rely totally on missionaries and others to evangelize souls to the faith. My faithful could make more efforts to share your faith in bringing souls to Me, if you really put your mind to it. There are souls going to hell because people are not inviting them to faith in Me. You can reach out to souls in your family, your friends, or even searching strangers. I will reward all souls who make extra efforts to evangelize souls to save them from going to hell.”
