Mary at the Cross of Her Son Jesus
Please read the passage below from the Gospel of St. John (19:25-30):
Standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala. When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple there whom he loved, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son.” Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother.” And from that hour the disciple took her into his home. After this, aware that everything was now finished, in order that the scripture might be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I thirst.” There was a vessel filled with common wine. So they put a sponge soaked in wine on a sprig of hyssop and put it up to his mouth. When Jesus had taken the wine, he said, “It is finished.” And bowing his head, he handed over the spirit.
I celebrated the Healing Mass last evening at the Little Shrine of Our Lady of Prince Edward Island at 7:30 p.m. A nice group of people took part. I prayed with each one after the Mass was ended. A good group rested in the Holy Spirit. Today, Saturday, I will celebrate Holy Mass at the Little Shrine at 9:30 a.m. as usual, especially asking Our Blessed Mother to pray for all of you for a blessed Holy Week so you can receive many graces and that you be filled with peace, love and joy on the great feast of Easter.
(Below you will find the message of Our Blessed Mother given to Father Melvin. Our Lady spoke to him these words.)
“Holy Week is here, My son Melvin and all My sons and daughters living on the face of the earth. This is the greatest week of the year. It is during this week that My Son Jesus, the Son of God, suffered the Passion and at the end died on the cross. I followed Him during the Way of the Cross and I stood at the cross while He suffered His last and died. It was for your salvation, all of you, that He suffered so much and offered Himself in sacrifice on the cross. He offered Himself to His Father to atone for all your sins. Now, My children, repent especially during this week of all your sins and ask Him for the graces you need to live according to His teachings. I am praying for all of you that one day you will be with God and with Me and all the angels and saints in heaven. I love you all, My dear children.”
