Saturday, July 15, 2017: (St. Bonaventure)
Jesus said: “My people, you have been reading the account of Joseph, and how he forgave his brothers for trying to kill him. It was My plan for Joseph to prepare the grain to save the Jews from the famine. Once Joseph died, the Pharaohs enslaved the Jews in the brick pits of Goshen to build the Egyptian cities. After some years of captivity, Moses was raised up as the ‘Deliverer’ to free the Jews from the bondage of the Egyptians. There is also a parallel of My Incarnation as a God-man when I became the Savior of all of mankind from their sins. Even the Passover of the Jews when they were freed, was the first Mass at the ‘Last Supper’. Then My crucifixion and Resurrection freed souls to enter heaven, and My sacrifice has made reparation for all of your sins. Rejoice that I am your Savior to lead you all on a path to heaven.”

(4:00 p.m. Mass) Jesus said: “My people, today’s Gospel is the parable I gave about the Sower sowing seeds. Some seed fell on rocky ground, but it withered and died because of a lack of roots. Other seed fell among thorns, but when it grew up, it was choked by the thorns. The remaining seed fell on good soil, and it yielded thirty, sixty, and one hundredfold. You realized that the Seed was My Word, but it is important to notice how My Word was received. I plant My Word in your hearts, and as in the vision, I water My Word with My graces to help you grow in faith. I explained this parable’s meaning to My disciples. The seed is the Word of God. The seed that fell on rocks and the hard path, are people who hear My Word, but the devil takes it away. They do not have strong faith, so temptation causes them not to bear fruit. The seed, that fell among the thorns, are people who first rejoice in My Word, but their faith is choked by the cares, riches, and pleasures of life. They also do not bear any fruit. The seed that fell on good soil, are the true faithful who accept My Word, and they bear many spiritual fruits according to their talents. I spoke many parables to the people, and I used figures of speech and nature so they could understand My examples. My disciples had the parables explained to them so they could write down the meaning in the Gospels.”

Jesus said: “My people, you are in great need of more priests, which is why I want you to pray for more vocations to the priesthood. I am showing you a priest’s black shirt without the Roman collar in the vision. Pray also for all the seminarians so they can complete their intention of becoming a priest. Be thankful for these vocations, because these men are remaining celibate for My sake. Pray also for all of your active priests, so they can remain in their priestly vocation. You need to help support your parish priest with your donations, your prayers, and any physical help with your church. The best places to have fertile ground for vocations to the priesthood, is where you have constant Adoration of My Blessed Sacrament. You should be grateful for all the priests who give you daily Mass, and Sunday Mass. Thank the priests also who give you Confession, baptize your children, and marry your adult children. You also need to thank your bishop for confirming your children with Confirmation. Even at the funeral Masses, your priests are there to console your grieving families. Your priests are your best friends because they act in My place at Mass and for your sacraments. My gift of My Eucharistic Presence is made possible by your priests. Pray for the spiritual protection of your priests to have pure souls, despite any attacks of the devil.”
