Wednesday, December 22, 2010:
 Jesus said: “My people, in today’s Gospel you are reading My Blessed Mother’s Magnificat that is read every night in the Liturgy of the Hours. She is a model to follow because she lived in My Divine Will, and she was sinless her whole life because of her love for Me. She was blessed to be My mother, but she was humble, followed My Will, and reached out to help others as she helped Elizabeth in her late pregnancy. She was a good teacher in My younger years, and she was a beacon of faith for My apostles. Give thanks and glory to God that you have such a loving spiritual mother who watches out for all of her children.”

Jesus said: “My people, your winter has just started and you are already seeing high snowfalls in some areas, and floods in California. Even tonight you are having a small amount of freezing rain. Some have had power outages from heavy snow, but you know how devastating ice storms are for power outages. Pray that you do not suffer such a storm this winter. Whenever you see freezing rain, it is a sign to you to check that you have some extra food, alternate fuel for heat, and lamp oil for lights. Having some windup flashlights that work would also be good to have on hand for seeing at night. In some Northern states you have been without power for a few weeks in the past years, so you know how difficult it is to keep warm without electricity. You also may want to test your alternate heaters to make sure that they are in working order. I mentioned these preparations before, but when you have a near miss ice storm, you get a reality check on something that could easily happen.”
