Tuesday, August 7, 2007: (St. Sixtus)

Jesus said: “My son, in today’s first reading you saw how Miriam and Aaron were jealous of Moses, and they spoke against him for marrying a Chusite woman. (Num 12:1-16) As a punishment for their criticizing and their jealousy, I turned Miriam into a snow white leper for seven days. Many of My prophets through the years have been persecuted and even killed because the people did not want to hear and obey My words through My prophets. Those, who take on My yoke to spread My messages, may suffer much, but I have a deep love for their willingness to do My mission for the people. You see in the vision this heart in the cemetery as a sign of My love. But the cemetery is also a sign that some of My prophets may have to suffer martyrdom for speaking out in My Name. The devil wants to silence My messengers, but I will protect them until their appointed time of suffering. Rejoice, My son, that you have been called, and I love you for accepting this difficult mission. You will be rewarded in My time, but you also have a heavy responsibility to follow My Will. Give praise and glory to Me for all that I have done for you.”
Jesus said: “My people, because you buy a piece of land, it does not mean that you alone own it. Wherever people develop land for building, you are sharing it with nature and the animals of that area. Some complain of the damage to their flowers, shrubs, and planted vegetables from the deer and various animals around you. You do not live in a vacuum, and My animal friends do not always obey property lines. Learn to live with the animals who need to eat things to survive. I made all the animals and insects for a balance of nature, and man wants to control everything. Where possible see how all of these things fit together for your own survival and do not violate My plans for a balance of nature.”
