Thursday, September 10, 2009: (Fr. Joseph D’Aurizio’s Funeral)

Jesus said: “My people, this beautiful priest has served Me fifty-three years in his priesthood and has helped many people over the years. Give thanks for his beautiful life, as many knew him from his travels. We are welcoming Fr. Joseph into heaven so he can receive his just reward. It is unfortunate that many of your older priests are being called home because you have a great shortage of priests, but some in their last years would find it difficult to serve in their priestly role. Continue to pray for your priests and for new vocations. The priests give you Mass and My sacraments which are invaluable for your spiritual life.”
Mary said: “My dear children, I enjoy a good birthday, and I am thankful for all of you that are honoring my feast day. I constantly encourage you to pray my rosaries because there is much need for prayer in your world that is full of evil. I also encourage you to wear my scapular and pray my consecration prayers before my feast days. I love my children so much, and I bring my mantle of protection around all of you.”
Jesus said: “My people, many of My refuges are on dirt roads in rural settings. You have seen some places that have a reddish brown dirt for a road. Have peace and trust in Me that My angel will lead you to the nearest refuge. Some have a difficult time believing in the descriptions of the refuges that I have given you. You have seen many refuges, but others do not know what to expect. Be at peace that My angels will protect you, and you will have all of your needs satisfied.”
Jesus said: “My people, there is a lot of discussion about trying to offer public insurance for those who do not have any health insurance. There are many places to reform the current system where there are some injustices. This plan will cost a trillion dollars or more to implement over ten years, but there are not enough real savings spelled out that could support this expense to pay for everyone. The reality is that some premium will need to be paid by someone, even as Social Security recipients have to pay their Medicare premiums. Without some funding mechanism in place, such a health plan could add to an ever enlarging National Debt. Pray for a compromise that your nation can afford.”
Jesus said: “My people, many of your scientists are ecstatic with the latest pictures from your repaired space telescope. Your horizons indeed will be widened with your new tools. This will give you another insight into the beauty of My creation in the universe with various star formations. Give thanks and praise to Me for allowing you to view these spectacular sights.”
Jesus said: “My people, it is beautiful to be able to view famous masterpiece artwork in your museums. It is sad when thieves try to steal these works of art so they can resell them for much money. Many are priceless and one of a kind, but these thieves are only interested in the greed for money. When the paintings are cut out of their frames, they could be damaged and are hard to touch up. Pray that any stolen artwork could be returned and placed back in public viewing.”
Jesus said: “My people, there are some eleventh hour conversions right before their deaths. Some realize that they do not have many more days of life, and they do not want to risk going to hell at their judgment. Be grateful for every conversion, even if it is on their deathbed. I told you the parable of those sent out into the vineyard to work, even to a late hour in the day. All were given the same wage which could symbolize all of those who have gained heaven. Do not be envious of My generosity to serious sinners, but be joyful that My mercy falls equally on everyone.”
Jesus said: “My people, when you give your thanksgiving at your meal at supper time, be grateful that you have enough food to eat, because there are some in other countries who are going to bed hungry without any food. Sometimes you take your food at supper for granted, but even your unemployed people may need to go to soup kitchens or food shelves to get something to eat. Even after your meal you could pray that the poor people may find enough food for their needs this day. You may even want to make some donations of time and money to help feed the homeless and poor in your area. Any good deed, that you do for your neighbor, will gain you treasure in heaven for your day of judgment.”
