The Victory Song
Please read the passage below from the Book of Revelation (19:5-10):
A voice coming from the throne said: “Praise our God, all you his servants, and you who revere him, small and great.” Then I (John) heard something like the sound of a great multitude or the sound of rushing water or mighty peals of thunder, as they said:“Alleluia! The Lord has established his reign, our God, the almighty. Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory. For the wedding day of the Lamb has come, his bride has made herself ready. She was allowed to wear a bright, clean linen garment.”Then the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who have been called to the wedding feast of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These words are true; they come from God.” I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Don’t! I am a fellow servant of yours and of your brothers who bear witness to Jesus. Worship God. Witness to Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”
I will celebrate Holy Mass this morning at the Little Shrine of Our Lady of Prince Edward Island at 9:30 a.m. We had a spring-like day yesterday with all the snow in front of the house gone. Praise the Lord.
(Below you will find the message of Our Blessed Mother given to Father Melvin. She spoke to him these words.)
“I embrace you, My son Melvin, and all My sons and daughters who accept Me as their heavenly Mother. I always join the angels and the saints as they sing their hymn to God the Father and to Jesus, My dear Son. Anyone who enters heaven is, as it were, married to the Lamb who is the Savior of all the people who are in heaven and those who will enter in the days and years to come. I am praying for all of you that you will love your Redeemer all the days of your life. Follow all that He has taught you and be an active member of His Church, the true Church. You will have to suffer at times but do not be afraid, Your Savior is always there to help you. Pray, My dear children, for the conversion of all non-believers and those who have not accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Your prayers are powerful because the Father gives great graces to those for whom you pray. Today there are many adolescents who do not pray and have rejected their Savior. Show them by your actions and your word that you believe in Jesus and you want every person to believe in Him. The good example is important for those who do not practice their faith. May the Lord bless you all.”
