Teaching about Adultery and Divorce
A reading from the Gospel of St. Matthew 5:2,27-32.
Jesus began to teach them, saying: “. . . You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you, everyone who looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one of your members than to have your whole body thrown into Gehenna. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one of your members than to have your whole body go into Gehenna. “It was also said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife must give her a bill of divorce.’ But I say to you, whoever divorces his wife (unless the marriage is unlawful) causes her to commit adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.”
I celebrated Holy Mass yesterday morning at the Little Shrine of Our Lady of Prince Edward Island, the Mother of Life, at 9:30 a.m. and a good number attended. In the evening I was at the Parish Church of the Immaculate Conception, Palmer Road, for the prayer meeting. A good group attended.
I will be leaving for Ontario shortly but I do not know the date yet. I should know in a few days. I hope I will be back for the First Friday of February for the Healing Mass. I will let those who wish to come know in a few days.
(Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words:)
“I bless you, My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters scattered all over the world. I am not happy with the many of My followers who are not following the commandments of God. My teaching about marriage is as follows: if a man and a woman want to get married, they are to receive the sacrament of marriage before they start living together. But today many live together like husband and wife and I have not blessed their union. Such a union is very sinful. Every marriage must be blessed by Me if you wish to make a success of your union. If your marriage is not blessed by Me then you are living with the evil one and he will cause you all kinds of trouble. No, My followers, have your union blessed in church by Me and I will live with you in your home and I will bring you great peace, love and joy.
There are also too many divorces today among My followers. You do not know how to forgive and how to start anew in your marriage. Divorce is not a solution to a marriage problem but a way to have more problems in the future. If you wish to live together until death, then you must be people of prayer. You must pray your rosary every day and call on Our Dear Mother to pray for your marriage and call on Me to bless your marriage. You need many great graces in order to live together and to avoid divorce. You must receive the sacraments of Penance and the Eucharist often especially every Sunday in order to live in close union with Me. I am the only one who can protect your marriage.“
