Monthly Message from 2009 for April 1, 2017
We continue our cycle of monthly messages for 2017 with the message from April 1, 2009 for our prayer groups and personal reflection.
April 1, 2009
“My beloved apostles, please know that you obtain a constant stream of grace for the world. You do this by serving so generously. Your generosity obtains for others sublime graces of calm and peace, sublime graces of charity and truth and sublime graces of conversion and perseverance. When you see how heaven has used your service, you will rejoice that you gave so willingly and consistently. My friends, you should not be distracted by your feelings. Your feelings are like the smallest stems of grass blowing in the wind, so quickly do they pass. Do not be tormented. Simply allow feelings of temptation to move along and concentrate on the truth which is that you have remained in My holy company. If you do this, you will be less distracted. You will be able to say, “Today I am sad, tomorrow I may be happy, the next day I may feel fear and afterwards rejoicing. What difference does it make as long as I am united to My Jesus and serving His kingdom?” Yes, many in this time find that they are so distracted by their feelings that they question their decision to serve at all. This is the ultimate degree of temptation. If I did not wish you to serve, I would not have called you into service. I need My chosen ones to remain closely tied to their decision to bring My light to others. Only in this way will the renewal push further into the world. Submit your feelings to me. When your feelings make you doubtful, sit with Me and together we will examine them, one by one. If examined in My company, you will see that your feelings in no way change My truth, which is that you have been formed to serve Me. Truly, I need your service. Please be loyal to your decision for heavenly service as you live your time on earth. If you remain faithful, I can do many things. I am with you. I am directing all that occurs in your life. We walk together and together we will triumph over all temptations.”

2nd of the Month Message on the Day for Non-Believers
April 2, 2017
“Dear children, apostles of my love, it is up to you to spread the love of my Son to all those who have not come to know it; you, the little lights of the world, whom I am teaching with motherly love to shine clearly with full brilliance. Prayer will help you, because prayer saves you, prayer saves the world. Therefore, my children, pray with words, feelings, merciful love and sacrifice. My Son has shown you the way – He who became incarnate and made of me the first chalice, with His exalted sacrifice He has shown you how you need to love. Therefore, my children, do not be afraid to speak the truth. Do not be afraid to change yourself and the world by spreading love, by doing everything for my Son to be known and loved by loving others in Him. As a mother I am always with you. I am imploring of my Son to help you for love to reign in your life – love that lives, love that draws, love which gives life. I am teaching you such love – pure love. It is up to you, my apostles, to recognize it, live it and spread it. Pray with feeling for your shepherds so that they can witness my Son with love. Thank you.”

St. Francis de Sales says:
“Praise be to Jesus.”
“You will not have true and lasting peace in the world until people recognize that the enemy of all peace is the evil that hides in hearts. This is the evil which opposes Holy Love. It is the evil which finds fault with good and accommodates sin to appease people. This same evil stills the voice of righteousness from the pulpit and amongst religious leaders. What good do you accomplish by not offending people but offending God?”
“There are nefarious collusions in the world today – groups of people and nations which are united outside of God’s Laws and focused on power which opposes democracy. These are the ones uninterested in the difference between good and evil or the Truth. By your efforts of prayers and sacrifice you can assist in undoing these tangles of knots. No prayers or sacrifice is unworthy or too small.”
Read Romans 10:1-4+
Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved. I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but it is not enlightened. For, being ignorant of the righteousness that comes from God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness. For Christ is the end of the law, that every one who has faith may be justified.
Synopsis: The righteousness of man comes about by zeal and love for God, not by ignorance of God’s righteousness.
