Tuesday, August 31, 2010:
Jesus said: “My people, many of your churches have been renovated where the traditional statues and ornate altars have been removed. Then there are a few churches where traditional crucifixes and statues are being returned. The statues and crucifix keep you fixed on My suffering and the saints are models to lead a holy life. Your traditional devotions of rosaries, novenas, Benediction, and Adoration also keep you close to Me in respecting My Real Presence in My Blessed Sacrament. It is this devotion to a holy life that can provide a good environment for priestly vocations. Encouraging daily prayer and frequent Confession should also be a part of a pastor’s guiding of his flock. Enriching the parishioners spiritual life is how traditional devotions can improve their lives to handle life’s trials. You need to call on Me in trust every day, and seek a loving relationship with Me in all that I ask you to do. By following My Will in your life, you will be on the right path to heaven.”

Jesus said: “My people, soon your children will be returning to school for a new school year at all levels of education. There have been mixed results with your public education system in America, but other countries are rated higher in their studies. Getting a college education is possible, but it is getting more expensive every year. Certain subjects as history and science have been distorted by those with particular agendas. It is harder to choose a career in certain fields because corporate America is shipping the good jobs out of the country for cheaper labor. Even foreigners are brought into America for cheaper jobs. Students here do not even realize that they are competing with foreigners for their future jobs. The average family wages are shrinking because of a lack of good corporate jobs. Manufacturing jobs have been exported to many nations which is part of the reason for your high unemployment. Encouraging a good education is always helpful, but the availability of good paying jobs is becoming a problem. Unless America can retain good paying manufacturing jobs, you could become a nation of smaller status. Pray for your children to have similar opportunities that you had in college and the work force.”
