Wednesday, March 13, 2019:
Jesus said: “My people, today you have the account of Jonah the prophet, which is the only sign that I will give to you. He was asked to go to his enemy in Nineveh and tell them their city would be destroyed in forty days. Jonah did not want to go to Nineveh, but he fled on a boat. Then a large storm came up, and the men on the boat threw Jonah overboard, because they thought he was the cause of the storm. A large fish swallowed him, and spewed him on the seashore. Jonah was given another chance to carry out his mission. When the people felt threatened by Jonah’s words, they put on sackcloth and sat in the ashes. They also changed their evil ways. When I saw the people of Nineveh repent and change their ways, I relented of the punishment that I was going to bring down on this city. This account is a lesson to everyone, that it is better to obey My laws and repent of your sins, than suffer My wrath of punishment. This is an unusual response for man’s behavior, because in most cases there is no change in his actions. This is why I punished the people in Noah’s time, and the people of Sodom because of their evil ways without repenting. Even in today’s evil ways, you are again seeing extremes in nature as your punishment. Lent is a time of prayer and fasting to show Me that you are sorry for your sins. By coming to Confession, you can restore your souls to My graces. So do not be reluctant to come to Confession, but come back to Me to change your evil ways.”
