Tuesday, January 17, 2017: (St. Anthony of the Desert)
Jesus said: “My people, I love you all so much, and I have given you My Commandments of love to live as your daily guide. You also have some Church laws and traditions to follow as well. There are times when your survival is more important than some traditions. At the time in the reading, My disciples needed something to eat because they were hungry. On Sunday it is part of My law not to do servile work, but if your livelihood requires you to work, then it could be tolerated. It would be better to have a different job, and do your work on another day, but the necessity of survival may be needed. You are trying to avoid offending Me in My laws, and you do this out of love for Me. There are Commandments associated with mortal sin, and you should abide by them. If you are truly sick on Sunday and cannot come out for Mass, it is understood. But do not make excuses when it is something like sports events that are not absolutely necessary to attend. This is not an acceptable excuse, and you could change the games, or do not play at all. You do make choices in your life, but try to follow My laws of love to have a proper Christian life.”

Jesus said: “My son, this was an exorcist priest that you remembered, who had a large painting of St. Anthony of the Desert that was oiling. You saw several movies of how this priest exorcized demons out of people. These hermit priests live on very little food, and they pray a lot in quiet surrounds. They are even attacked by demons, because the demons do not want the priest to save souls. St. Anthony was the Father of monastic life even before monasteries were formed. His way of contemplative prayer attracted many other monks who later came to monasteries. The monks way of silence in their cells started with St. Anthony’s example. Many contemplative orders adopted the teachings of St. Anthony. I need many prayer warriors to counter the evil that Satan is carrying on throughout the earth. Pray much for all the sinners who need conversions.”
