Wednesday, February 18, 2015: (Ash Wednesday)
Jesus said: “My people, today you are beginning a new Lenten Season that should be focused on improving your spiritual life. Some of you are already praying a lot, so you need to be able to fast between meals, and try to avoid any occasions of your most frequent sins. Denying yourself of some comforts, can help strengthen you against sinful temptations. You could make a few more charitable donations than you normally do. I have asked you to make more time for Me, so you could read the Bible or other spiritual reading. Keep remembering to take advantage of any opportunities to help people. Lent is a time to focus more on love of Me, and love of your neighbors. Be ready to share your faith with others for conversions. I rely on My prayer warriors to keep praying for sinners and the souls in purgatory. Choose some extra efforts that you could make during Lent.”

Jesus said: “My people, there are some people who are frustrated with life’s events, especially in the winter during February. Cold and snowy winters are hard to cope with when you are setting snow level records and cold temperature records. Many of you in the Northern states have not seen a thaw or much weather over freezing in the last month or so. Even those people in the Southern states, are suffering from power outages in ice storms. It is hard to lift up the spirits of people who are so downcast. Christians should be happy to have opportunities to help people every day. If you should meet any frustrating situations, it might be better to change your environment, or remove yourself from such a state. If you cannot make such changes, then call on Me to have My angels console you, and strengthen you through your trials. You are entering the Lenten Season, so try to bear your burdens without any complaints. Think more about loving Me and your neighbor, instead of being upset by life’s trials.”
