The Birth of Jesus
Please read this passage from the Gospel of St. Matthew (1:18-25):
Now this is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about. When his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, but before they lived together, she was found with child through the holy Spirit. Joseph her husband, since he was a righteous man, yet unwilling to expose her to shame, decided to divorce her quietly. Such was his intention when, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home. For it is through the holy Spirit that this child has been conceived in her. She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: “Behold, the virgin shall be with child and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel,” which means “God is with us.” When Joseph awoke, he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took his wife into his home. He had no relations with her until she bore a son, and he named him Jesus.
I celebrated the Healing Mass last evening at the Little Shrine of Our Lady of Prince Edward Island. There was a good group present. I prayed with all the people and I asked the Lord to heal them of any sickness or problem they had. Today I will celebrate Holy Mass at the Little Shrine at 9:30 a.m. It is difficult to pay all the expenses for the chapel, especially at this time with the cost of heating oil, the property tax, the insurance plus the cost of electricity and all that is needed for the altar. If you can help I would be very thankful indeed.
(Below you will find the message of Our Blessed Mother given to Father Melvin. She spoke to him these words.)
“I am the Mother of Jesus, the Savior of the world, as St. Matthew’s Gospel and St. Luke’s Gospel tell you. I want to speak to you, My son Melvin, and I call on all My sons and daughters to listen to what I am going to say. My son, you always had a great devotion for your Mother, and it was especially your mother who taught you all that. It was in the year 2000 that I came to visit you with a special message. I called Myself ‘the Lady of Prince Edward Island’ and I told you that this Island was holy ground for it had been blessed by My Son, Jesus, and also by me. I came to you, My son, to show you My love and to ask you to have a shrine built on the Island in My honor. I knew it would take time so in the meantime I asked you to build My chapel, which I call My Little Shrine. The Island is very special to Me because there are no abortions performed in this province. I pray that it will remain like this forever. You know that I appeared on top of the Little Shrine after it was built. You can see Me in the clouds. I am always there in My special home and any person who comes to visit Me, I give them special graces. Many people have been healed in this place and many more will be healed in the future. You will receive the money soon so you can begin building what I asked you. I bless you, My son, and I also bless all My sons and daughters spread everywhere.”
