Tuesday, December 3, 2013: (St. Francis Xavier)
Jesus said: “My people, the Catholic faith needs the underpinnings of a good prayer life, Sunday Mass, and frequent Confession. There is also another element, and that is developing a true loving, personal relationship with your Lord. Do not just repeat words in your prayers, but you need to pray from the heart. When you keep telling Me how much you love Me, I should be able to see your sincerity in how you love Me and your neighbor. You need to reach out with acts of charity in helping your family, and your neighbors both with your money and your time. The more you do out of love for Me, the more treasure you will store up in heaven for your judgment. The most important sharing of all is when people see how your love for Me has inspired your life. Then they will desire My love as well. Remember to make love and concern for each other a daily focus by calling on My grace, and keeping your focus on Me in your life. Those, who seek Me out of love and obedience, will have their reward in heaven.”

Jesus said: “My people, you are seeing the possibility of more churches closing, not only due to a priest shortage, but fewer people are attending Sunday Mass. As your numbers drop, the collections are going down as well. Even the uncertainty of a church closing, is causing your numbers to go down as well. You have a new bishop in your diocese, so it is hard to know what he will do to address this problem. Keep praying to keep your churches open, or you could lose even more members who will not come to another church. In the same way, you need to pray for your priests, and for more vocations to the priesthood. You should treasure even your retired priests who are providing for your Masses. Without enough priests, you could also find it hard to have Confession times available. The sign of the faith getting weaker among your people, is another sign that you are in the end times where evil is getting stronger. I am more powerful than the demons, but My faithful need to keep close to Me for their protection.”
