Wednesday, September 27, 2017: (St. Vincent de Paul)
Jesus said: “My people, this month you are being called on to help your bishop’s fund, and those people in Puerto Rico who were devastated by Hurricane Maria. Today’s St. Vincent de Paul also helped the poor of his time. You have many demands on your funds to run your family’s expenses, but some causes demand your attention to help those people who are less fortunate without a home. Give some thought to helping the storm victims with your prayers and donations. Those people, who you help, will be grateful, and you will gain more valuable treasure in heaven.”

Jesus said: “My people, you have choices in life as to what is most important in your life. Some people are more worldly than others, so they measure success by how much money and possessions they have. Those people, who are more spiritual, are content to have only enough money to get by, and they prefer more time for prayer and good deeds. By letting Me direct your life, you will be better able to fulfill My mission for you. Do not be so focused on accumulating as much wealth as you can. You only need a bare minimum to survive, and it is better to rely on My help, than on your own wealth. I measure your success on your prayer life, and how many good deeds you can accomplish. I have told you that money cannot buy you into heaven. You cannot take any money past the grave, but you will leave it to your heirs. So focus more on following My Will, and you will be richer in heaven with what is truly more valuable.”
