Tuesday, June 21, 2011: (St. Aloysius Gonzaga)
Jesus said: “My people, this account of Abram shows you his generosity in settling a potential problem over who should have which land. Lot chose the well watered land near Sodom and Gomorrah, and Abram was rewarded with a promise of many descendants on his choice of land. It is better to make peaceful compromises than to have constant wars that have occurred throughout history over land and money. This example of Abram could be an answer for the many wars that you are seeing in the Arab countries and in Iraq and Afghanistan. Some of these wars are instigated by the one world people for gain in money in selling weapons or for the oil on the land. The latest conflicts in the Arab countries are changing old regimes with a goal to raise oil prices by threatening the oil supplies. These powerful men behind the scenes are not seeking compromises, but they have a desire for control in money and power. Just as Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed for their sins, so America is going to suffer its own demise because of its sins. Because man cannot learn from history, your people are doomed to repeat it with your own fall. Be prepared to leave for My refuges when the coming persecution will attack you.”

Jesus said: “My people, there are some people who accumulate wealth for its own sake. I know what you need, and I will see to it that you have your necessities. Sometimes people have more trust in their money than they have trust in My help. Having too much wealth can corrupt people, and they may feel that they do not have to depend on Me. You would much rather store your spiritual treasure in heaven than be concerned about accumulating any money or gold on earth. Remember the Gospel reading recently that said: ‘Where your treasure lies, so lies your heart.’ If you have excess wealth, you could share it with the poor or those in need in your family. Today’s Gospel speaks of the golden rule which says to do unto others what you would want them to do to you. Following My ways of life will lead you to heaven through the narrow gate. Give praise and thanks to Me for all the gifts that I give you. Remember that you are dependent on Me for everything, even for those who do not realize or accept this truth.”
