Jeremiah 9:12-14 Why is the land ruined and laid waste like a wilderness, so that no one passes through? And the Lord says: Because they have forsaken my law that I set before them, and have not obeyed my voice, or walked in accordance with it, but have stubbornly followed their own hearts and have gone after the Baals, as their ancestors taught them.
“Beloved children, can it be more clear? Can I speak more plainly? This generation has purchased great destruction by their sin and disobedience. Are my ways unfair? I tell you they are not! I have written my laws on every heart. Those who close their hearts to my law seal their own destruction, for my laws are life-giving. By rejecting them and following the Baals of the age, they turn their backs on life. Stubbornly choosing death, they write the script of their own demise. Child, all this will happen—it must happen—so that the triumph of the Immaculate can come to pass. Pray for souls. Pray for the coming of the kingdom. Those faithful souls—and there are more than you know who have responded to grace—these souls are working with me in many ways. Can I ask more of them? How can I not when the stakes are so high? Offer me everything, dear children. So many are in eternal danger. Help me to save souls. Shalom.”
Beloved Father of my heart, in the Divine Will help me to respond more perfectly to grace so that I may be a tireless worker in the field of the Lord. In the Divine will I beg for more graces, and accept every grace it pleases you to give me. Help me, O Lord, to help you save souls! Maranatha! Amen.
