Jesus said: “My people, in today’s Gospel the Pharisees criticized Me and My apostles for not following the traditional washing of hands. It is then that I told them about how well they followed Moses’s traditions of cleaning the outside of the body, but they did not keep the inside soul clean from their sins. This is true of people today because they are so concerned about their outward appearances. When you have a sin filled soul, it appears very dark and displeasing for Me to look at. People with mortal sin even appear dead to Me in their souls. The point of this reading is that your soul’s appearance should be of more concern to you than how you appear in your body. By going to frequent Confession at least monthly, you can keep a pure soul and be much more pleasing to Me. Instead of trying to please people, you should be trying to please Me more. You are only on the earth a short time before your body dies, but your soul lives on for all eternity. So strive to be worthy of coming to heaven.”
Jesus said: “My people, there is good reason to watch the latest developments in the Canary Islands. There is a major volcano that is linked with the formation of these islands. The longer the earthquake activity continues, and the more bulging that occurs, the chance of a major explosion increases. If any release is slow, then there will be a minimal effect on the area. If activity increases at a rapid rate with larger earthquakes, you could see a major eruption that could send tsunamis to the East coast of America. Pray that this volcano does not explode violently which could put a lot of ash into the atmosphere. Do some research to examine the size of the caldera of this volcano, and some history of its past eruptions.” Note: El Hierro volcano in the Canary Islands is a shield volcano and it has been releasing gases from the ocean floor. It is in red alert with earthquakes ongoing even at a lower than 2.0 level. There was a 4.3 earthquake, and this is the first activity since 1971.
