Wednesday, December 21, 2011: (St. Peter Canisius)
Jesus said: “My people, once St. Gabriel told My Blessed Mother that St. Elizabeth was pregnant in her old age, Mary set out for Ein Karem from Nazareth on a donkey. Most people do not understand how brave she was to travel such a distance while she was pregnant herself. She wanted to help her cousin, and this is called the Visitation in your Joyful Rosary Mystery. The scene where St. John the Baptist stirred in the womb of St. Elizabeth was a leap for joy at My Blessed Mother’s arrival bearing Me in her womb. St. John was going to proclaim My coming, and this was our first meeting. Right after this scene, My Blessed Mother proclaimed her Magnificat, one of her few words in the Scriptures. This is a joyful occasion and a beautiful story for Advent as you prepare for My birth.”

Jesus said: “My people, you have visited this church in Ein Karem where My Blessed Mother came to help St. Elizabeth with her late pregnancy. This flashback vision gives you the feeling of being back in Israel where I lived. When you travel to Israel, the Bible comes alive when you read the Scriptures of My Gospels. Be thankful that you had the opportunity to visit there, since many people cannot make this trip. All of these early readings in St. Luke help prepare you for My coming at Christmas. You can be prepared in your soul also by making a good confession. Pray for the people of the world to accept Me into their hearts, so you can have true peace in the world.”

Jesus said: “My people, wishing people a Merry Christmas is making a struggle to return because some people are upset that many people and businesses have chosen to say ‘Happy Holidays’. But the feast of My birth is a holy day, because it is a sign of your beginning Redemption as I became a God-man. Displaying My Nativity scene at your house, and wishing people a Merry Christmas can be your way of witnessing your faith to Me and to others. The atheists have done everything to try and remove My Name from all of your public places. These people are in the minority, and they should not violate your freedom to express your faith. Be joyful and share your Christmas spirit of love with everyone.”
