Sunday, February 14, 2016:
Jesus said: “My people, in the Gospel you read of My fasting for forty days, and your Lenten devotions are also for forty days. In the desert you read of the three temptations of the devil. One was for bread, one was for fame in the world, and one was pride. For man in this world, you are also tempted by the devil in similar ways. First you are tested by food where some are gluttons, and some have no food. Your fasting between meals, or giving up certain foods, helps the soul to control the body’s desire for more food than is necessary to eat. A second temptation could be a strong desire for money and possessions. Do not let anything control you, or become an addiction or a god for you. I give you sufficient things for your life, so trust in Me to provide for you without worrying about how you will have food to eat, clothes to wear, or a house to stay. A third temptation is how some people desire fame or social status to be important in people’s eyes. You need to be more humble, and do not be taken up with your pride in having riches or knowledge to show off to people. You are celebrating St. Valentine’s day, so you need to show your special love for your wife or sweetheart. You extend that love to put Me first in your lives, and to love your neighbor and help them in their needs. When you love Me and everyone, you are preparing yourself for the love of being in heaven.”
