The Readings today:
1. Bible (Douay Rheims). Acts 13: 9-30
 Then Saul, otherwise Paul, filled with the Holy Ghost, looking upon him,  said: O full of all guile, and of all deceit, child of the devil, enemy of all justice, thou ceasest not to pervert the right ways of the Lord.
 And now behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun for a time. And immediately there fell a mist and darkness upon him, and going about, he sought some one to lead him by the hand.  Then the proconsul, when he had seen what was done, believed, admiring at the doctrine of the Lord.  Now when Paul and they that were with him had sailed from Paphos, they came to Perge in Pamphylia. And John departing from them, returned to Jerusalem.  But they passing through Perge, came to Antioch in Pisidia: and entering into the synagogue on the sabbath day, they sat down.  And after the reading of the law and the prophets, the rulers of the synagogue sent to them, saying: Ye men, brethren, if you have any word of exhortation to make to the people, speak.
 Then Paul rising up, and with his hand bespeaking silence, said: Ye men of Israel, and you that fear God, give ear.  The God of the people of Israel chose our fathers, and exalted the people when they were sojourners in the land of Egypt, and with an high arm brought them out from thence,  And for the space of forty years endured their manners in the desert.  And destroying seven nations in the land of Chanaan, divided their land among them, by lot,  As it were, after four hundred and fifty years: and after these things, he gave unto them judges, until Samuel the prophet.
 And after that they desired a king: and God gave them Saul the son of Cis, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, forty years.  And when he had removed him, he raised them up David to be king: to whom giving testimony, he said: I have found David, the son of Jesse, a man according to my own heart, who shall do all my wills.  Of this man’ s seed God according to his promise, hath raised up to Israel a Saviour, Jesus:  John first preaching, before his coming, the baptism of penance to all the people of Israel.  And when John was fulfilling his course, he said: I am not he, whom you think me to be: but behold, there cometh one after me, whose shoes of his feet I am not worthy to loose.
 Men, brethren, children of the stock of Abraham, and whosoever among you fear God, to you the word of this salvation is sent.  For they that inhabited Jerusalem, and the rulers thereof, not knowing him, nor the voices of the prophets, which are read every sabbath, judging him have fulfilled them.  And finding no cause of death in him, they desired of Pilate, that they might kill him.  And when they had fulfilled all things that were written of him, taking him down from the tree, they laid him in a sepulchre.  But God raised him up from the dead the third day:
Book of Truth:
2. Mother of Salvation: My Son died to save your souls, not to free you from the ills of this world
“My child, the world will witness the prophecies of La Salette as the enemies of God, dressed as wolves in sheep’s clothing, will now stand up proudly within my Son’s Church on Earth and begin to declare the heresies which I warned the world about. That time has arrived.
As foretold, the darkness has already descended upon the Church and this plan to devour the souls of the faithful will continue until the Body of my Son is desecrated in accordance with the plan of the antichrist. What many people do not know is that the enemies of God, led by the antichrist – still to make himself known – believe in God. Not only do they believe in God, but because they detest everything to do with God, they will plot against His Plans to prepare the world for the Second Coming of my Son, Jesus Christ.
For every Word my Son declares, through these Messages, they will contradict Him by imitating what He says. If my Son says, prepare now through the Sacraments and prayer, they, His enemies, will make similar statements, but they will be different. The call to help humanity – the poor – the persecuted – will be their main focus, not the proclamation of the Word. They will not urge you to pray for your souls or for the salvation of other souls. No, instead, you will be asked to help these souls from a humanitarian perspective.
When you do not hear the call to save your souls, from those who claim to represent the Church of my Son, then you will know, within your hearts, that something is terribly wrong.
My Son died to save your souls, not to free you from the ills of this world, which will always exist until my Son reclaims His Rightful Throne, promised to Him by God the Most High. You must never forget the Word of God. All that matters now is to plead for the salvation of all souls – irrespective as to whether they are kings or paupers.”
“My dearly beloved daughter, the world must now prepare for the great changes, which I have permitted, in order to prepare humanity for the Second Coming. Much work has been done through My beloved followers, to save millions of souls; through the prayers I have given them.
Your loyalty to Me, your Jesus, My beloved followers, means that you have given souls over to Me who are now safe and who would, otherwise, have been cast into Hell. So powerful are your prayers, that in time, as millions more accept My Messages of love and hope that billions of souls will be saved. My work through you, My disciples, saves thousands and thousands of people daily. You must, therefore, never allow doubts, which will naturally assail you, from time to time, and which may prevent you from praying.
Now you must listen. Much will happen now. The storms will increase all over the world and the earth will groan in pain as the antichrist prepares his entrance. It won’t be long before he will present himself.
Keep focused, My daughter, on the spreading of My Word, although many obstacles may face you. Let nothing delay My Messages from being given to everyone. It will not be the number of people who will receive The Book of Truth or My Messages, but the number of people who recite My Crusade Prayers, that will make the difference. The prayers will weaken the power of the antichrist.
It will be the chastisements sent to earth by My Father, which will slay those leaders and groups who dare to hurt His children.
The Power of God will cover those who love Him. The Power of God will protect those who convert. God, My Eternal Father, will keep pouring His Graces until His Power covers and protects all of His children on earth.
Go in peace, hope and love. Trust in Me, and all will be well.
Overview of the Readings:
In the Bible reading, Paul is teaching about Jesus and the fulfilment of the Scriptures, which were fulfilled when Jesus died on the Cross and rose again.Today, too, as then, people have forgotten who Jesus is – they are ignorant of the prophecies and think they don’t apply for these times.
The second reading speaks of the heresies which will now be declared by the wolves in sheep’s clothing within the church.
The third reading speaks of the power of our Crusade prayers and the billions which will be saved and of the advent of the antichrist.
