Thursday, July 3, 2014:(St. Thomas, our 49th Wedding Anniversary)
Jesus said: “My people, today you are honoring St. Thomas, who was remembered most for his doubting My Resurrection. Once I appeared to him and he placed his finger into My wounds in My hands and My side, he believed. Then I told him how he believed because he saw Me, but blessed are those who believe in Me, and yet they have not seen Me. Faith in My Divinity and in My Words of the Gospel, take an extra effort to believe. This also means that My faithful must repent of their sins, and follow My Commandments in the way they live. Today, also is your 49th Wedding Anniversary, and you are a testimony to the dedication of your love for one another with a life long commitment. This enduring commitment is missing in a lot of marriages because of some addictions or selfish motives. When you commit to Holy Matrimony, it is beyond yourselves because the two of you are as one flesh.”

Prayer Group:
Jesus said: “My people, you have witnessed a cold and snowy winter, and now you are seeing more weather disasters. In the West you are seeing serious droughts and fires. In Minnesota you are seeing floods from heavy rains and swollen rivers all along the Mississippi River. Other places have experienced destructive tornadoes, and now you are seeing a hurricane coming up the East coast. Keep praying for all the people who have lost their lives, and those with lost or damaged homes. Your economy had a big dip in the first quarter, which could have been a result of a bad winter and tornadoes.”

Jesus said: “My people, your parish at Holy Name of Jesus has suffered from a priest shortage and fewer people coming to Sunday Mass. Contemplating such a closing of this church will be more difficult for those who have been there since its beginning in 1967. I have told you that every closed church is a lost opportunity for grace from the sacraments. You are seeing a general decline in all church attendance in America, as many of your people have lost their faith. You need to have a revival of the lukewarm souls so they could return to their former fervor in the faith.”

Jesus said: “My people, it only takes a few brutal killings to stir up the people in Israel among the Arabs and the Jews. This fighting builds on itself to make a larger confrontation. The fighting in Iraq has drawn more US soldiers in to protect your embassy. These expansions of troop levels could lead to another war that includes the US. Keep praying for peace in the Middle East where a larger war could break out at any time.”

Jesus said: “My people, you are seeing an evil age where young couples would rather live together in fornication, than make a life long commitment to married life. Having children is the purpose of marriage, but some are more concerned with their pleasures instead of bringing up children. Your marriage of forty-nine years is an inspiration to other young people that shows them you can live out a life commitment to each other. Encourage your children and grandchildren to live a married life, instead of a sinful relationship.”

Jesus said: “My people, many Americans have lived with their freedoms for so long that they do not realize how some people are suffering from living under communist tyranny in China and Russia. England at one point was testing your forefathers with excessive taxation and control by force. You had brave men lead you to the freedoms that you enjoy today. Be grateful for those lives that were given up to fight your oppressors.”

Jesus said: “My people, your corporations are not helping your people to find good paying jobs. Most of your good paying jobs have been sent overseas to people who do the same work for less pay. It has been the cheap labor overseas that has taken away many of your jobs. Now you have low paying jobs or only part time jobs available. These wages are not enough to support people in their living expenses. Pray for many young people, who have to live with their parents just to survive. Now, because of such low wages, there is not enough tax money to support your welfare state. Your Medicaid and Social Security programs are running out of money, and it is hard to support them with deficit budgets. Pray for your people to change their ways, or you will see a collapse of your government.”

Jesus said: “My people, I have given you examples to love Me and your neighbors, or you will face the consequences of your sins. I want My people to reach out and help their neighbors with good deeds, and to evangelize souls to the faith. Do not just live for your own pleasures, but help others who have less money to find the food and housing that is needed for them to survive. America is rich by comparison to other countries, so help the poor, and work to stop aborting your children. Then you will be building up your treasure in heaven.”
