Today is a day of preparation for your souls. Today is a day of your personal examination of conscience. Everyone needs to look into their souls and see how they have separated themselves from God.
How many times have you turned away from a person in need?
How many times have you viewed life through the glass of jealousy or comparison?
How many times did you think you deserved more?
How many times did you put your personal needs first and then give Father your left over time?
How many times have you chosen not to fast?
To say the rosary?
To go to adoration?
To love God with your heart, mind and soul?
Have you chased after God like the Hound in heaven?
Or have you waited for God to come to you?
Have you shared your love of God with others?
Or were you too embarrassed to talk to others about God?
How many times have you chosen sleep rather than go to Mass?
How many times when traveling did you neglect to go to Mass because it was inconvenient?
How many times have you gone go Confession and accepted the graces that come with Confession?
How many times have you been distracted during Mass and thought about your next project rather than concentrating on God?
How many times have you intentionally offered your attachments to God?
How many times have you intentionally given your heart and soul to the Father?
How many times have you read God’s words, rather than the most popular novel?
How many times have you generously given to the point of sacrifice, rather than just giving your extras?
How many times have you walked away from God when He was speaking to you because you didn’t believe?
What will God see when He looks at your souls?
Will they be pure and reflect God’s light, or will they be dirty with sins of disobedience, neglect?
Today Children I am calling you to set aside and pray and ask for clarity of your souls and hearts. Ask Father to illuminate your conscience so you can see, really see, how you have created barriers to having an intimate relationship with God because it was too scary? Because it would take up too much time? Because you really didn’t believe God wanted a relationship with you so you rationalized away your natural desire to see the Father?
Mother Mary continued, Pray Pray Pray today. Pray for the illumination of your conscience. Pray for an open heart to accept what God shows you, repent, pray, ask for forgiveness.
