Seek My Friendship and Then You Will Have a True and Lasting Friend

George was concerned that some of Nancy's friends were taking up her time that should be spent with God. Nancy's many friends wanted to talk with her on the phone or be with her in person. They did not realize this prevented Nancy from devoting the minimum of three hours a day to prayer that Jesus requested of her. Nancy needed this prayer time to receive help and strength from Jesus.

George began reading aloud Chapter 93 on page 180 in "My Daily Bread". The title of the chapter was "Human Friendships".

"As soon as a sacrifice is required, so many of these so-called friends are busy with other matters."

In this chapter Jesus said, "My child, how many friends stand by you when you need them? As soon as a sacrifice is required, so many of these so-called friends are busy with other matters."

George skipped a paragraph and read: "Do not overestimate earthly friendships. Sooner or later you must leave your friends, or they must leave you. If you depend too much on any human companion, you will have to bear a painful separation later. Human friendship needs My blessing."

George then read the reflection at the end of the chapter: "All true friendships must be based on virtue and loyalty to Christ. Unless I am helping my friends in some way to live a better life, I am not a true friend. So, too, people who are not helping me become a better person, are not real friends of mine, but useless acquaintances." After George read the words "useless acquaintances" and before he could continue, Jesus entered the conversation and spoke to Nancy.

Jesus said, "My friendship is the only true and lasting friendship.

"I will tell you why: Because I am all Truth, because My Love alone is perfect.

"Seek My Love. Seek My friendship and then you will have a true and lasting friend.

"Remember I give you all that you need.

"Human friendships are lacking in perfection.

"My motive is pure.

"I desire you to come unto Me forever.

"Oh, My little children, you look for love in all the wrong places. You look for friendships in all the wrong places.

"Place your life, place your trust in Me.

"Share those words with My children." [Jesus was referring to the words George was reading from Chapter 93 of "My Daily Bread".]

Rosary Novena for Nancy's Healing

Day 1 - Rosary Novena for Nancy's Healing

August 6, 2009 - Feast of the Transfiguration

Today met with many distractions and trials for Nancy.  In fact, she saw the evil one before the Rosary at 8 pm appear as a black little man and she knew he was behind the distractions.  Yet, no matter how busy she was, she did not fail to stop at 8 pm and begin the 1st day of the Rosary Novena to the Mother of God for her physical healing. 
After the Rosary, she attended Holy Mass.  While the Priest was preaching, she saw an array of Heavenly light shining at certain points during the homily depending on what he was saying.  In fact, at one point, she saw the Lord himself appear momentarily all in light behind the Cross near where the priest was preaching.  It reminded us of the transfiguration.  Truly, the priest represents Jesus on earth.  How beautiful the priesthood is!  God works through them to carry on his ministry of healing on earth.
After the Mass, as the faithful were singing the closing hymn, "Sing of Mary", the candles from the Altar were blown out. From among the billow of smoke created by the blown candle, Nancy went into ecstasy and in awe uttered repeatedly, "Miracle!  Miracle!"  She saw the Risen Lord appear in a glorified state, all in light, on the cross suspended in the air. 
Pray with us:

Morning Prayer for Feast of Transfiguration

O God, at your only-begotten Son’s glorious transfiguration you confirmed the mysteries of faith by the witness of the prophets of old, and you miraculously prefigured what would happen when your adopted children were brought to perfection. Grant to us, your servants that we may hear the voice of your beloved Son and so desire to become co-heirs with him.  Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever.
