Saturday, December 3, 2016: (St. Francis Xavier)
Jesus said: “My people, the laborers are few, but the harvest is great. Ask the harvest Master to send out more workers to harvest the souls. My son, it is coincidental that you are coming to another church for Saturday morning Mass, and now you hear My call for more priests. I have asked you many times to pray for your priests, and for more vocations to the priesthood. As more older priests retire, it puts more of a burden on the remaining priests to provide Masses for all the open churches. As Mass schedules change, you will see it harder to even have a Sunday Mass, let along a Saturday morning Mass. Not only are you seeing fewer priests available, but you are also seeing a declining number of lay people in the pews. There truly are a lot of souls to be converted, but few people are willing to be evangelists to save souls. I thank all of My priest sons and lay people who are reaching out to save souls from hell. Keep praying for vocations to the priesthood, and for the conversion of poor sinners.”

(4:00 p.m. Mass) Jesus said: “My people, today in the Gospel you are hearing My herald in the desert preparing the way for Me. St. John called people to ‘repent’ of their sins, and be baptized by immersion into the water of the Jordan River. He is the one in the desert who wore camel’s hair and ate locusts and wild honey. He was called by God to be one of My prophets. You have read the account how as a baby in the womb, St. John leapt for joy at the announcement of My Blessed Mother’s coming to visit St. Elizabeth. This was his first announcement of My coming, as I was in My Blessed Mother’s womb. Later, in the desert he called Me the ‘Lamb of God’, and My first apostles started following Me. St. John was strong in his faith, and he even told King Herod that he should not marry his brother’s wife. For that he was imprisoned, and later beheaded by Herod. Rejoice in this second week of Advent, as I also call people to repent of their sins, and confess them in Confession frequently. You will soon be reading the account of My birth, and you are grateful that I came as a God-man. I came to sacrifice My life so that all sinners could be redeemed of their sins, and be saved from hell. I have given you My sacrament of Baptism as an entrance into being a Christian. Many of you were baptized at birth, but you can now proclaim your own faith in Me, as your Baptismal sponsors did. Enjoy the Christmas spirit by loving Me and loving your neighbors.”
