The Vision of Cornelius
Below read the passage from the Acts of the Apostles (10:1-8):
Now in Caesarea there was a man named Cornelius, a centurion of the Cohort called the Italica, devout and God-fearing along with his whole household, who used to give alms generously to the Jewish people and pray to God constantly. One afternoon about three o’clock, he saw plainly in a vision an angel of God come in to him and say to him, “Cornelius.” He looked intently at him and, seized with fear, said, “What is it, sir?” He said to him, “Your prayers and almsgiving have ascended as a memorial offering before God. Now send some men to Joppa and summon one Simon who is called Peter. He is staying with another Simon, a tanner, who has a house by the sea.” When the angel who spoke to him had left, he called two of his servants and a devout soldier from his staff, explained everything to them, and sent them to Joppa.
I will have a Healing Mass on Friday, March 2, at the Little Shrine of Our Lady of Prince Edward Island starting at 7:30 p.m. We will begin with the rosary at 7:00 p.m. Everybody is welcome.
(Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words.)
“I continue again today to speak to you, My brother Melvin, and I want you all, My brothers and sisters, to listen to My words. As Cornelius had a visit from heaven, this happens also today. Melvin, My brother, you will remember what happened one early morning at 3:00 a.m. in 1977 in Africa. You had slept very well that night but you woke up at 3:00 a.m. hearing somebody calling you, “Melvin, Melvin.” You looked all around your bedroom but there was nobody there. Then you heard your name called a second time. You answered, “Who is calling me?“ I, Jesus, answered you saying, “I am Jesus who is calling you. Get up right away and come to the parish church and sit before Me in the tabernacle.” You got up, washed and dressed and before 3:30 a.m. you were sitting before the tabernacle. I spoke to you for three hours. I especially told you the state of the world and how bad it would become in the future. I called you to begin two religious societies: the Contemplative Brothers of Jesus and the Contemplative Sisters of Jesus. I spoke to you that they would be partly contemplatives but they would work to evangelize the people wherever they lived. These religious men and women would be blessed in a very special way. I also told you how to instruct them and what they were to follow. I am now waiting, Melvin My brother, that you begin these societies as soon as possible. I bless you, My brother and all My friends.”
