The Lord’s Prayer
Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when he had finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray just as John taught his disciples.” He said to them, “When you pray, say:
Father, hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come.
Give us each day our daily bread
and forgive us our sins
for we ourselves forgive everyone in debt to us,
and do not subject us to the final test.”
(Passage from the Gospel of Luke 11:1-4)
I celebrated Holy Mass this morning at 9:30 a.m. at the Little Shrine of Our Lady of Prince Edward Island. I especially offered this Holy Mass in honor of Our Blessed Mother as today is Her special day. I had the Book of Remembrance on the altar and the Mass was offered for all those written in the book. As you know I offer the Masses on Wednesdays and Saturdays for all those inscribed in the book and I do this for a whole year. It only costs $15.00 to inscribe a person in the book and 104 Masses are offered for each one of them. I also offer my rosary and other prayers every day for them all. If you wish to enter people in this book, please write their names on paper and mail me the names with the money.
Below you will find the message of Our Blessed Mother given to Father Melvin. Our Lady spoke to him these words,
“I bless you, My brothers and sisters scattered all over the world. I have appeared often in many countries of the world and My great desire is to bring you all, My children, to My Son Jesus. My Son has given you a beautiful prayer, the Our Father, and you should pray this prayer often during the day. It is a perfect prayer that gives honor to the Father with the desire that His Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven. You ask Him for the food you need and to forgive you for all your sins as you forgive those who sinned against you. You ask also for the grace you need to avoid sin. Pray this prayer with all your heart. I love you.”
