Tuesday, May 1, 2012: (St. Joseph, the worker)
Jesus said: “My people, in the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve committed the original sin by taking the fruit of the forbidden tree because they listened to the devil’s lies. As a consequence of their sin, they were put out of the Garden of Eden, and they had to work by the sweat of their brow in order to work for a living in providing their food and shelter. From this early event men and women have been working as well for their daily bread. Only in recent years have women been forced to work outside of the home in the general work place. Work helps to provide the skills needed to help everyone in each person’s daily necessities. By your working, you help other people in their struggle for survival. Farmers provide your food to eat, and many other workers provide for your other needs. Your work compensation helps you to buy food, houses, and cars for your livelihood. I remind people that you are here on this earth to know, love, and serve Me. So accumulating a lot of wealth is not your main goal. Keep everything in perspective by sharing your wealth and your time to help your neighbors with good works.”

Jesus said: “My people, when one of your friends is afflicted with a stroke or cancer, you are quick to go and see that person and to comfort him or her with your presence. You have seen Me heal many people in the Gospel, and it was the people’s faith in My healing that healed them. Keep praying that your friends can be healed with My grace and your faith in Me to heal them. Ask Me to send down My angels to comfort them, and help your friends on the road to recovery. You have fasted and prayed novenas for healing, so you can do so again for the recent events in your life. Trust that I can enable a quicker recovery, and to stop any cancers from getting worse. Life and your health is a precious gift, and it is when you see yourself or another with a health problem that you realize the thin line between health and sickness or being incapacitated. Pray for your own health, and for that of your loved ones, especially those who are sick or have strokes.”
