@ Adoration Chapel
Dearest Jesus present in the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar I praise and adore You. I love You, Lord. I am grateful for the opportunity to be with You in this lovely little chapel. Thank You for Your presence in all tabernacles in the world, Lord. Thank You for Holy Mass and Communion this morning and for the beautiful priest who visited our parish.
Lord, thank You for the wonderful day with my family yesterday and with my friend. Please comfort (name withheld) who is so very ill. Heal her if it is Your Will, Jesus. Give her Your peace, Lord.
“My child, My child do not worry about what may come tomorrow nor what will come about in the future. Have I not always provided for you?”
Yes, Lord. You have always provided for me.
“This will not change, My daughter. You must never fear the future or have any anxieties about it. I know at times you are sad, but do not focus on what will be lost. Focus only on what must be done to save souls and to administer with great love to their needs. I have taught you well how to do this, My little lamb. I endowed you with the innate ability to respond under pressure and in emergency situations with calmness and even with a light heart when others are in fear. You have been given talents to cheer and encourage people even during the darkest of days. You saw this when you were at the bedside of a patient in respiratory or cardiac distress. You were clear headed, remembered your training and took action to save their lives. My child, remember how even you were amazed at how calm you were?”
Yes, Lord. I remember this and it still causes me to reflect on how strange it seemed to me afterwards. During the emergency it seemed I was given more clarity of mind, by Your grace, and I could see what needed to be done next. I didn’t know the whole picture clinically, but knew at least what to do next to move the patient toward stability. Sometimes it meant simply starting CPR or calling a code, but other times I could take less drastic measures to give them relief. That was only by Your grace, I realize Lord.
“Yes, My child. Your mother had this gift, also. She was very calm under emergent conditions and able to handle very stressful situations with a level-headedness and a sense of confidence.”
Yes, Lord. I remember how she was during a tornado that passed over our house. It sounded like a train was coming toward us and she and Dad both acted quickly but very calmly.
“My child this is true and as a result, even though you and your siblings were nervous, you were confident that your parents knew what to do to keep you safe. They also asked the children to pray and you all did so. They gave you something holy to do, and to focus on that also called down protection on their family.”
It also made us realize the gravity of the situation, Lord.
“Yes, and that is good, because then you really listened to them and followed their direction and you also prayed. There is an important lesson in this, My child. Reflect on this and apply it to future situations. You already have learned this by example and apply it to other problems. I want you to understand this scenario better and analyze it so that you gain confidence for future situations. When you are leading and guiding others under extreme stress and times of peril, your confidence and willingness to take action instills trust in others who are not able to think as clearly. Giving them a task or responsibility helps accomplish the outcome through teamwork and allows others to focus on taking positive steps versus reacting out of fear; which only makes matters worse and in some cases can jeopardize the lives of others.”
You are telling me this for a reason, Lord. It seems that the preparation continues whereas for quite some time the focus was on calling souls to Your heart through repentance and conversion. I understand the prompting of Your Holy Spirit to be a type of forewarning. Is this correct, Lord?
“My little one, have I not informed you and many of My messengers of the events to come? I have done so over a period of decades and years and yet many become complacent because these changes have not occurred within their timetable. God’s ways are not your ways, My people and yet when a warning I have given does not come to fruition within the month, many souls grow tired of believing Me. Be thankful when events are mitigated through prayer and fasting. Praise God when peace continues. Still, I tell you, do not become complacent for there is great spiritual darkness in the world and the evil one seeks the ruin of souls. This is not a fairy tale or a myth, My children, but reality. So many children of Mine have lost touch with reality because they have insulated themselves from the world. They have created their own culture of work and entertainment and have forgotten My command to love your neighbor as yourself. Many of My children are not unlike the Pharisees of My earthly time who asked, ‘Who is my neighbor?’ They did not want to serve in love and mercy those they had marginalized, the Samaritans, the Gentiles or anyone deemed to be ‘less than’ their social status. Do not be like the Pharisees, My children. Be like My Mother, My Apostles, My disciples who learned humility, compassion, love and mercy from the Prince of Mercy, the Author of Mercy, the Savior, Redeemer and Lord. Be like Me. I laid hands on the lepers, the orphans, widows, the sick and the dying. These were all the less fortunate in Jewish society. I ministered to those who were sick of heart, mind and spirit and brought love, dignity, forgiveness and mercy instead. This is what I call you to do. You cannot do this by insulating yourselves from the world. Live the Gospel, My children. Take Me to a dying world. I will lead you. My Mother will guide you. She, the Immaculate One did not stay within her home in Nazareth at all times, but even She followed Me on many of My journeys to other towns and cities. She and many women disciples came with My Apostles and Me as we preached, healed and taught. You must go out, My children to those who are in need. Look around you. You will see your neighbor everywhere. Be peace, love, joy and mercy to all you meet. Ask Me what it is I would like you to do and to say. I will guide, My children. Let us be very busy about the work of Our Father, building the Kingdom of God. Seek souls in need. Be alert. When tragedy strikes, open your hearts and your homes to those in need. Share what you have out of love, trusting in Me, your Jesus to provide for all your needs. You will witness great miracles from God through your trust and faith. Do not fear, but trust. All that is needed is love and trust. All will be well. Let us begin with any loving action you can take, My children. Be love. All will be well. Pray, especially this week and coming weeks for peace in the world and to live lives of holiness. Seek reconciliation in your families and frequent the Sacraments.”
“Go in peace, My little ones. I bless you in the name of My Father, in My name and in the name of My Holy Spirit. Increase family prayer and be of one heart and one mind. Be united in your faith and in the love of God.”
Yes, Lord. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.
“I am with you, My (name withheld) and My (name withheld). I am with your holy friends and family. Be at peace.”
Thank You, Jesus. I love You.
“And I love you.”
