The Gospel Teaching
A reading from St. Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians 15, 1 – 11.
Now I am reminding you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you indeed received and in which you also stand. Through it you are also being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you, unless you believed in vain. For I handed on to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scripture; that he was buried; that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures; that he appeared to Kephas, then to the Twelve. After that, he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at once, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. After that he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. Last of all, as to one born abnormally, he appeared to me. For I am the least of the apostles, not fit to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me has not been ineffective. Indeed, I have toiled harder than all of them; not I, however, but the grace of God that is with me. Therefore, whether it be I or they, so we preach and so you believed.
Indeed I have followed what our Bishop here has asked of me. I also pray for him every day. I remember when the last Bishop refused to accept Our Lady of Prince Edward Island, She told me that he would get sick and have to resign. Indeed within six months, he took sick and could no longer govern the diocese. Our Blessed Mother is the one asking for Her shrine and every person should accept Her request.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Redeemer given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
“I lay My hands on you My brother Melvin and I bless all My brothers and sisters living in every part of the world. Every human being in the world is called to accept Me and to believe in Me as his or her Savior who wants that every person becomes a member of My Church I founded on the Apostles with St. Peter as the head. You are also called to read the Scriptures especially the Gospels. In those pages you will come to know Me in a personal way and listen to My words. I want you all to become My friends who will remain close to Me forever no matter what sort of problems or difficulties you may be going through. I am the one who will help you in your daily life and I have many graces and gifts for each one of you. I love you all and I bless you.”
P.S. My computer was down this morning and I just fixed it with the help of the company who told me what to do on the phone. May the Lord bless you all.
