Wednesday, May 27, 2009: (St. Augustine of Canterbury)

Jesus said: “My people, today’s saint, St. Augustine of Canterbury, was bishop in Canterbury, England as well as your sister city of Rochester, England. The same missionary spirit that brought the faith to England, has also brought the faith to America as well. It is unfortunate that churches are closing in some parts of America because the people have become lax in their faith and attendance has fallen off. You have almost become another mission land which needs to reconvert the fallen away Christians. Once you know of the faith and give it up, you are even more responsible for your sins and spiritual laziness. Many of your people are being led more by their own will to love the worldly things than loving Me. Look how you desire material things. Once you possess them, they are cold and become obsolete. When you love Me, I return your love and you can have a personal relationship with Me. It is by My grace that you have anything, even your very existence. You should be thankful to Me for all that you have. This life is a spiritual testing ground to see how much you can love Me and your neighbor. Those, who reject Me, and choose to follow the world and the devil, are choosing the broad road to hell. Those, who truly love Me in their actions, have seen the Light and recognize their purpose here is to know, love, and serve Me. It is My faithful who choose to follow the narrow road to heaven. Keep your focus on Me and call on My graces to stay strong in your faith and never become lax. Teach your family and friends also to remain strong in their faith.”
