Calling All Catholics!

Could This Be Our Last Hope Of Salvation?

Catholics around the world are returning to the practice of their faith despite attacks from evil forces to discredit the Church. The attacks are meant to turn people away from the confession of their sins, which is the key to receiving the mercy of God. In recent revelations that have been accepted by the Church Our Lord Jesus indicated to St. Faustina that He would give mankind "the last hope of salvation."

This
"last hope of salvation" is the recourse to His Feast of Mercy. Jesus first appeared to St. Faustina in 1931 and He told her that she was to prepare the world for His return. He told her that before He comes again, He would pour out His mercy. In that vision Jesus was dressed in a white garment and had two brilliant rays of light coming from His Heart, one red as blood, the other clear as water. He told her to paint an image of Him just as she had seen Him and to sign it "Jesus, I Trust In You." She was also to work on establishing a Feast of Mercy in the Church and to have the painted image venerated throughout the world. Our Lord said that this feast is to be celebrated on the first Sunday after Easter. On May 5th, 2000 the Vatican issued a decree and fulfilled the will of Christ by establishing this feast, now called "Divine Mercy Sunday".

Jesus told St. Faustina,
"I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially poor sinners. On that day all the divine floodgates through which graces flow are opened. The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain the complete forgiveness of sins and punishment.  Let no soul fear to draw near to Me, even though its sins be as scarlet."(Diary, 699) For example, a person, who had been a terrible sinner all their life could return to the Church and be totally pardoned by first going to Confession and then receiving Holy Communion on that Feast of Mercy. But why that  day and why now, you might ask? Because Our Lord said it was to be so. The Bible says that in the last days that God would pour out His spirit and all those who ask for His mercy would receive it.  We could be in those last days!

Jesus said,
"Souls perish in spite of My bitter Passion. I am giving them the last hope of salvation; that is, the Feast of My Mercy..... Tell souls about this great mercy of Mine, because the awful day, the day of My justice is near." (Diary, 965) It doesn't take a genius to see the times that we are living in. We only need to look at what is happening in our world today. Repent of your sins and ask for the Lord's Mercy.

Don't ever be afraid to go to Confession. Jesus said,
"When you approach the confessional, know this, that I Myself am waiting there for you. Never analyze what sort of a priest it is that I am making use of... I am only hidden by the priest, but I Myself act in your soul. Here the misery of the soul meets the God of mercy. The greater the sinner, the greater the right he has to My mercy." (1602,1725, 723)

One should attempt to go to Confession before Divine Mercy Sunday. We must also remember the precepts of the Church which are:
   1. Attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days.
   2. Confess sins at least once a year.
   3. Receive Holy Communion at least during the Easter season.
   4. Observe days of fast and abstinence.
   5. Provide for the material needs of the Church.

From the Catechism of the Catholic Church,  (2041-2043)

It would be a mistake for someone who has been away from the Church to think that they could return just for that one day. Our Lord knows our intentions and part of making a good Confession is intending never to sin again. Missing Mass on Sundays and Holydays of Obligation are serious sins and offends Our Lord very much. We should be serious about our faith and do the best we can to help to support our Church and to help Jesus save as many souls as possible.

Our Lord also said,
"I demand from you deeds of mercy which are to arise out of love for Me. The first Sunday after Easter is the Feast of Mercy, but there must also be acts of mercy...." (742) A good act of mercy would be to tell everyone about this feast. Some people have been away for a long time. What better reason to come back, when we can be granted a complete pardon of sins and punishment?

MESSAGE FOR ALL CATHOLICS:

“JESUS IS IN THE CONFESSIONAL”

Despite evil’s attempts at discrediting Catholic Priests, many fallen-away Catholics will soon be returning to the practice of their faith.  The reason: the Church’s new feast on the Sunday after Easter.  What new feast you might say?  It is the “Feast of Divine Mercy”.  The Catholic Church has been celebrating this feast ever since the Vatican had made it official on April 30th in the Jubilee year 2000.  Why would every Catholic want to come back, you might ask?  It is the promise that Jesus Himself made for a complete forgiveness of all sins and punishment on that day, even to the most terrible sinner imaginable.  God in His great mercy is giving mankind a last chance for salvation. 

When did Jesus make this promise and how does one get it?  Jesus left all the details in a diary that He commanded Saint Faustina to write in the 1930’s.  It was her job to record everything that He wanted mankind to know about His mercy before He returns to judge the world.   To get this great promise one has to go to Confession and then receive Holy Communion on that Feast of Divine Mercy, which has now been called Divine Mercy Sunday throughout the whole Church.  Jesus said, “Whoever approaches the Fountain of Life on this day will be granted complete forgiveness of sins and punishment.” (Diary, 300)  To receive Communion worthily one should be in the state of grace and without serious sin.

How many today receive Holy Communion with souls stained with mortal sins?  When a person receives the true Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus in Holy Communion without first going to Confession to cleanse their souls, that soul is going even deeper into sin.  Many have not confessed their sins in a long time so this special promise of a complete pardon is an incentive to come to Jesus, with trust, before He returns again to judge the world.

In Saint Faustina’s diary, she recorded that Jesus also indicated that He Himself is right there in the confessional.  Jesus told her, “When you approach the confessional, know this, that I Myself am waiting there for you.  I am only hidden by the priest, but I Myself act in your soul.  Here the misery of the soul meets the God of mercy.  Tell souls that from this fount of mercy souls draw graces solely with the vessel of trust.  If their trust is great, there is no limit to My generosity." (1602) 

Jesus knew that people would really need to hear these words of re-assurance today, so He went on to say “Come with faith to the feet of My representative...and make your confession before Me.  The person of the priest is, for Me, only a screen.  Never analyze what sort of a priest that I am making use of; open your soul in confession as you would to Me, and I will fill it with My light." (1725) "Here the misery of the soul meets the God of mercy.” (1602)

Many feel that their sins are unforgivable but, Jesus said, “Were a soul like a decaying corpse, so that from a human standpoint, there would be no hope of restoration and everything would already be lost, it is not so with God.  The miracle of Divine Mercy restores that soul in full.  In the Tribunal of Mercy (the great sacrament of Confession) ...the greatest miracles take place and are incessantly repeated." (1448) "Here the misery of the soul meets the God of mercy.” (1602)  Every sin imaginable could be forgiven by Him!

So many people are weighed down by sin and their prideful nature keeps them away from the confession of their sins.  They are living in misery.   Jesus said, “Oh, how miserable are those who do not take advantage of the miracle of God’s mercy!  You will call out in vain, but it will be too late." (1448) "Tell aching mankind to snuggle close to My merciful Heart, and I will fill it with peace."  (1074) "There is no misery that could be a match for My mercy.” (1273)   Jesus came to restore sinners and one would be foolish to turn away from His merciful love.

On the evening of His resurrection Jesus appeared to His Apostles and the first thing that He did was to give them the power to forgive sins (John 20:19-31).  This is done through the power of the Holy Spirit.  For sure it was not the Lord’s intention just for the Apostles to forgive sins but rather for that power to be passed down through the Holy Spirit to the priests of today.  That is why Confession is so much of an uplifting experience; we are actually receiving heavenly graces and the forgiveness of sins from the Lord Himself! 

Most people haven’t spent much time thinking about the future.  Some might think that they are brilliant and successful in this life, but what is that as compared to eternity?  The father of lies has everyone focused on this life while not thinking about what happens in the eternal life.  If you really want to be wise, think about where you are going to spend eternity.  We will be there for quite a long time.  Many do not believe in the fires of hell.   Unfortunately, those are the ones that usually will end up there.  Be wise, think about it!

Remember these words of Jesus, “ I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially poor sinners. On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open.  The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment." (699)  "Souls perish in spite of My bitter Passion.  I am giving them the last hope of salvation; that is, the Feast of My Mercy.  If they will not adore My mercy, they will perish for all eternity...tell souls about this great mercy of Mine, because the awful day, the day of My justice, is near.” (965)  Wake up people of the World, and repent of your sins, this just might be our last hope of salvation!

Contact your local Catholic Church and arrange go to Confession as soon as you can, so that you may be ready always to receive Jesus in Holy Communion, especially on Divine Mercy Sunday, when you can receive the total forgiveness of your sins and punishment!  It is like receiving a brand new start in life!

The Last Hope of Salvation 

Have you ever thought about what happens to you after you die?  If you haven’t done it, you should.  When we die, we all face an eternity, either in Heaven or in hell. 

There is nothing that is more important than to be ready for the moment of death.  Jesus told us to always be ready.  What determines our eternity, is the state of our souls, at the exact moment of our death.  If we suddenly die, in the state of un-repented mortal sin, we’ll be cast forever, into the everlasting flames of hell, and suffer for all eternity. 

Mortal sin is a sin which causes death to a soul and a separation from God.  You can tell when you have committed a mortal sin, you feel like hiding your face from God, because you know you did very wrong.  Examples of mortal sin are: abortion (murder), adultery, and fornication.  These sins can be committed in thought, word, or deed.

God’s laws have not changed.  We will all be held responsible for the least un-repented sin when we stand in judgment.  At the Judgment, there is no turning back.  If you have un-repented sin and have not confessed, you will either go straight to hell, if it is a mortal sin, or if you have repented, end up in the fires of Purgatory for quite a long while.  Very, very few souls go directly to Heaven. 

There is a very simple way, for each and every one of us to avoid the flames of Hell and Purgatory.  Jesus Himself, asked for a new feast to be celebrated in His Church on the Sunday after Easter in which He would be pouring forth His mercy in great abundance as a “last hope of salvation”.  Only the Catholic Church has responded to His request.  They made it an official feast, with the Pope stating that he had fulfilled the will of Christ.

Jesus has made a really incredible promise for this Feast of Divine Mercy; that the soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion on that feast, will obtain the complete forgiveness of all sins and all punishment.  Normally, going to Confession just only wipes away the sin, not the punishment.  On this Feast of Divine Mercy, Jesus is offering us a very special and complete pardon of all sins and all punishment as a perfect preparation for our Day of Judgment. 

So all that you need to do is to make a good Confession and receive Holy Communion on that feast.  A good Confession must include the promise not to sin again.  If you have been away from the Church and have not been going to Sunday Mass, then you must promise the Lord not to miss Sunday Mass ever again.  If you fail with that promise, you will not gain the complete forgiveness of all sins and punishment. 

The entire world-wide Catholic Church is celebrates this feast on the Sunday after Easter.  If you have been away from the practice of your faith, then don’t miss this incredible opportunity to get right with God.  It does not matter how bad you have been or how many sins that you have, Jesus will forgive you if you make a good Confession.  In fact, Jesus said that it gives Him the greatest pleasure to forgive the worst of sinners and He promises to fill them all with special graces and blessings on this great Feast of Divine Mercy. 

Jesus also said for us to never analyze what sort of a priest that He is making use of to hear our Confessions.  Jesus told St. Faustina that He is always there waiting for us in the Confessional and that the priest He is using is only a screen for Him.  When you go to Confession, just close your eyes and confess your sins to Jesus Himself.  Our sweet Lord Jesus is truly there waiting for you and will receive you back with open arms.

Jesus cares for you, more than anyone else.  He said that the loss of each soul plunges Him into mortal sadness. Can you imagine the depth of His love?  Make Jesus happy; go to Confession and go to receive Him in Holy Communion of this Feast of Divine Mercy.  You will not believe how good it feels to start your journey all over again!
