Jesus said: “My people, at times people get themselves into helpless situations that seem like there is no way out. When they pray their petitions to Me, I hear the cry of the poor. In some instances I have answered their prayer with a miracle, even as in this vision when I pulled the person out of the cistern. I am the Great Healer as well as your Savior. In other instances I have performed spiritual miracles in converting people from their sinful lifestyles. In all of these situations a prayer of thanksgiving would be in order. In the same way when people have helped you, or have worked for you all year long, it is appropriate to thank them with a gift of some kind. You have so many gifts to thank Me for that you could give a gift to the poor as you see Me in them. Christmas is a great time to share gifts as you exchange gifts with one another. Remember that I am your greatest gift to you every day and not just on Christmas.”

Jesus said: “My people, for a man and woman who are courting before marriage, it is very difficult to avoid sins of pleasure including fornication or masturbation. Yet to honor your wife’s virginity, it is much better to reserve the marriage act until after you are married. Even once you are married, you should honor your vows and not have any affairs with others. You also need to honor My laws against birth control devices so that you leave every marriage act open to possible life. Following natural rhythm methods of Family Planning is allowed by the Church. It is not easy to live a chaste life, but you will be rewarded for doing your best to follow My laws against fornication, adultery, masturbation, and birth control. Pray for help in any temptations for these sins and confess any such sins quickly in Confession. It is these sins of the flesh that send most souls into hell. Show your love for Me by avoiding these sins of the flesh.”
