Wednesday, May 26, 2010: (St. Philip Neri)
Jesus said: “My people, in today’s Gospel St. James and St. John wanted to be at My right hand and at My left hand in heaven. I told them that they would suffer as I was about to, but that choosing places in heaven was not Mine to give. I then explained to them how the current religious leaders demanded respect, but it must not be that way for My apostles. Just as I washed the feet of My apostles, those, who want to lead, must be servants for everyone. Do not lord your authority over anyone, but work to do everything for Me. This vision of the purification of gold is how all of My faithful must work every day on perfecting your spiritual life. If you have authority over anyone, even in your family, do not abuse your power, but use it in a Christian way to help those under your charge.”

Jesus said: “My people, for years your farmers have been using various pesticides to kill the bugs that would otherwise destroy their fruit products. Unfortunately, many of these pesticides are slow to decompose and they poison the orchards where they are used. Those, who build homes on old orchards, have had cancers and other diseases as these chemicals affect humans. Even some amounts of these pesticides remain on or in the fruit and they do not wash off completely. As the insects develop resistance to these chemicals, your chemical manufacturers keep developing new pesticides which are not fully tested for the effects on man. Recently, some studies are showing effects on children from eating this fruit and they are accumulating higher residual levels of pesticides in the body. These chemicals seem to be linked to Attention Deficit Syndrome problems in young children. They also could be linked to allergies and cancers if enough years of study could be carried out. Man in his attempts to control nature through hybrids, pesticides, and fertilizers, has upset the delicate balance of nature that I established at the beginning of creation. When I come to judge the earth, I will have to renew My creation to its original perfection. Be careful to build up your immune system with herbs and vitamins so your bodies can fight off all of these pesticides that could adversely affect your health.”
