Tuesday, August 21, 2012: (St. Pius X)
Jesus said: “My people, in the first reading of Ezechiel (Ez 28:1-10), the king of Tyre was content with his wealth for himself without worshiping Me. He became lazy in worshiping himself as a god. As a result, I allowed foreigners to kill him and his people with the sword, even as Ezekiel was given this in prophesy. This is a lesson for all the people who allow themselves to be the center of their lives without worshiping Me. The easy chair in the vision is all about how some people are lazy instead of working when they are able-bodied. Your country has too many people who receive entitlement payments from your government for not working. Many of your people, who are young and not retired, could find jobs if they tried harder. Many of your corporations are sending jobs overseas, which is why you have so many people who are unemployed. Laziness is really a sin of sloth if jobs are available. The incentives to work are not encouraging people when their wages after taxes may be less than what is given freely on welfare. There is also a spiritual laziness in people who do not come to church on Sunday to give Me worship. You are dependent on Me for everything, whether you want to accept it or not. So do not allow yourself to be lazy in the body or the spirit.”
