Tuesday, April 18, 2017: (Funeral Mass of Mary Firpo)
Mary Firpo said: “I am so happy my son, Fr. John, could offer up my funeral Mass. As a mother of a priest, I am so fortunate to have my son serving for a lot longer than I served in the Army. I am so proud of Fr. John. I love all of my family very much, but I have a special place in my heart for Fr. John. I want to thank all of the people who came to my funeral Mass. I also want to thank all of the people who cared for me in my later years. I saw Jesus coming to take me home, much like Carol’s mother saw Jesus coming for her, as she died at about 97 as well. God bless all of you, and I will be praying for all of my family and friends.”

Jesus said: “My people, your allies and your troops are trying to rid ISIS from the Iraqi cities, but it is getting hard to root them out because they hide behind the civilians. These battles do not have clear cut lines of who controls which areas. Street to street clearing of ISIS is difficult when there are so many places to hide. Your troops have similar problems riding ISIS from the many caves the enemy has constructed in Afghanistan. Your President does not want to commit ground troops when you can use drones and air cover for the local troops. These wars in the Middle East have gone on for years without any clear victories. It is difficult to have peace when the factions want to keep fighting. Keep praying for peace where Satan is keeping the hatred alive by his evil ways. Even in America you are still seeing little bursts of terrorism, and your politicians still refuse to call it what it is.”
