Tuesday, January 21, 2014: (St. Agnes)
Jesus said: “My people, from the first reading you have seen how I had My prophet Samuel anoint Saul and then David. There were seven sons of Jesse, but I looked into the heart of David for the one that I wanted to lead Israel. Even when I call people to do certain missions, I also look into the hearts of those that I choose to lead My people by My Word. In the Gospel reading I told the people, who criticized My apostles, that I was even Lord of the Sabbath. (Mark 3:27,28) ‘The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath.’ My people should be following the spirit of the Law because they love Me and their neighbors. If you have love for Me in your heart, then you will follow My Commandments because you do not want to offend Me. If you had perfect love, you would not even need My Commandments. As it is though, you are weak to sin by nature of Adam’s sin. Until you are perfected, you need to follow My Commandments as guidelines in how to live your lives. It is the spirit of the Law in love that is more important than the Law itself. Follow Me in love, and you will be on the right path to heaven.”

(John Foley funeral Mass)Jesus said: “My dear Barbara, I want to console you for the loss of your husband, as I know how much you loved him. He was suffering in the nursing home for some years, and you were dedicated to stand by him. Your family will help you get through this loss as they loved him as well. His life was a gift to support his family and the many churches and needed buildings that helped people and provided a place for worshiping Me. God bless him for all his care for the people. He will be purified for a short time in purgatory because his illness atoned for some of his sins. A few Masses could bring him to heaven. John loves you Barbara, and all the family. He will be praying and watching out for all of you.”
