"The people of Nineveh believed God; they proclaimed a fast and all of them, great and small, put on sackcloth." —Jonah 3:5

Before the Great Jubilee, Pope John Paul II prophesied that the Lord wanted to bring about "manifold conversions" in the year 2000 (Toward the Third Millennium, 14). Today, the Lord also intends to quickly bring about amazing conversions in great numbers. In our skeptical world, some people find this hard to believe. Nevertheless, we should look at the 120,000 people of wicked Nineveh who repented in one day (Jon 3:5; 4:11) or the eight million people converted in seven years through the ministry of Our Lady of Guadalupe. There were even greater harvests of souls in some African countries, China, and South Korea. Jesus bears fruit abundantly and more abundantly.

Expect Jesus to manifest His divine love by converting, in a short time, millions or even billions of people. Jesus promised: "I — once I am lifted up from earth — will draw all men to Myself" (Jn 12:32). Be converted; be a witness for Jesus (Acts 1:8); be part of Jesus' greatest works of salvation.

Prayer: Father, may I live and die to lead people to Jesus.
Promise: "She had a sister named Mary, who seated herself at the Lord's feet and listened to His words." —Lk 10:39
Praise: St. Denis obediently traveled to and evangelized the Franks. In return, they beheaded him. "There is no greater love than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends" (Jn 15:13).
