Dependence on God
Jesus said to his disciples, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life and what you will eat, or about your body and what you will wear. For life is more than food and the body more than clothing. Notice the ravens: they do not sow or reap; they have neither storehouse nor barn, yet God feeds them. How much more important are you than birds! Can any of you by worrying add a moment to your lifespan? If even the smallest things are beyond your control, why are you anxious about the rest? Notice how the flowers grow. They do not toil or spin. But I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of them. If God so clothes the grass in the field that grows today and is thrown into the oven tomorrow, will he not much more provide for you, O you of little faith? As for you, do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, and do not worry anymore. All the nations of the world seek for these things, and your Father knows that you need them. Instead, seek his kingdom, and these other things will be given you besides. Do not be afraid any longer, little flock, for your Father is pleased to give you the kingdom. Sell your belongings and give alms. Provide money bags for yourselves that do not wear out, an inexhaustible treasure in heaven that no thief can reach nor moth destroy. For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be. (Passage from the Gospel of St. Luke 12:22-34)
I celebrated Holy Mass yesterday morning in the Little Shrine of Our Lady of Prince Edward Island. Today I will go to the Immaculate Conception Church, Palmer Road, to concelebrate Holy Mass with the Parish Priest at 11:00 a.m. I will have a Healing Mass this week at the Little Shrine on Friday, November 4, at 7:30 p.m. and we will pray the rosary starting at 7:00 p.m.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
“I fill you with My love and peace, My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters living throughout the world. So many people today are worrying and others are depressed. They are acting as if they are in charge of everything and nothing is working right. Many get themselves sick from all this negative reaction and depression. I call you, My friends, to give me all your worries, your troubles, your sicknesses, etc., and I will take care of these things. Our heavenly Father created all that is in the world and He created each one of you. He keeps everything in being and He keeps you alive every moment of the day or night. Do not worry about how you are going to live in the world. What I call you to do is to seek the Kingdom of God and the Father will give you everything you need. Be concerned about the Word of God and come and follow Him. Believe in Him with all your heart, follow the commandments He has given you, believe in Me too, His Son Jesus. I call you to go to church at least every Sunday and give yourself completely to Me and I will lead you to the Kingdom. I am ready to give you the greatest gift I have prepared for you: the Holy Eucharist. Be united to Me.”
