Wednesday, November 10, 2010: (St. Leo the Great, Pope)
Jesus said: “My people, in the Gospel there were ten lepers that I healed, but only a Samaritan returned to give thanks for his healing. I told him to go as his faith had saved him. There are also the lukewarm in the faith vs. My prayer warriors. This is the contrast in the vision where some faithful are beacons of faith and hope, but the lukewarm have their light out because of their spiritual laziness. But those, who pray and do good works in evangelizing souls, are the souls that I will welcome into heaven. The lukewarm, who only call on Me when they are in need and do not help people, may have the gates of heaven closed to them if they do not wake up. Also, My faithful need to be thanking Me for all that I do for you. Give praise and glory to your Lord, and you will have My promise of eternal life in heaven.”

Jesus said: “My people, when you are before Me in Adoration, you can contemplate how best to improve your spiritual life. When you see this waste basket, it reminds you of what sinful habits that you would like to discard into the basket. There are certain sins that you repeat in Confession many times. Think of your worst habitual sin, and try to focus on how you can best avoid that sin. Pray to Me to give you the grace to overcome that weakness in your life. As you see the water in the pool, think of how your sins could be cleansed from your soul, and how you could work to keep your soul pure. By working to rid your habitual sins, then you could be making progress in striving for your perfection. If you allow yourself to fall back into your old habits, then pick yourself up, and struggle back to where you have progressed before. By keeping your focus on Me, and keeping yourself strong in the face of temptations, then you can make some true progress in your spiritual life.”
