Tuesday, July 30, 2013: (St. Peter Chrysologus)
Jesus said: “My people, in the description of the Parable of the Sower, I am the sower, and I spread the seeds of faith into people’s souls. It is the devil who plants the seeds of evil of the weeds in people’s hearts and souls. At the harvest, all the good people are like the wheat that I will store in My barn of heaven. All the weeds will be gathered together, and they will be burned in the fires of hell. I am merciful in allowing the good people to grow up with the evil people, but I am just also in casting the evil ones into eternal punishment of hell for their evil deeds and not loving Me. You have two deaths according to the Scriptures. The first death or particular judgment, occurs when you die. Then, you are judged to heaven, hell, or purgatory. This is when your soul is separated from your body. The second death is the final judgment when you will be resurrected with your glorified bodies. Those in hell will also be joined with their bodies, but they will appear very ugly, and burned like their soul bodies. Any people that are remaining in purgatory, will be brought into heaven. Those people, who are in heaven, will experience My beatific vision of My glory, and the beauty of the saints and angels. Knowing of this reward that awaits My faithful in heaven, should give them hope and a desire to be with Me.”

Jesus said: “My people, your life in this evil world is like running a gauntlet through the demons every day. You know the demons do not sleep, and they are constantly testing you with temptations. If they cannot get you to sin much, then they attack you through your children and relatives. It is not easy to fight off these constant temptations, so call on Me to send My angels to protect you and strengthen you. You can wear your blessed sacramentals of rosaries, scapulars, and a Benedictine blessed cross. By keeping a pure soul with frequent Confession and daily prayer, you can keep close to Me. Your prayers that invoke My Name will help keep the demons away from you. Thank you for all that you do to help souls, and protect them from the demons.”
