Justification by Faith

Dear Friends,

A reading from St. Paul’s letter to the Galatians (3:1-14):

O Galatians! Who has bewitched you, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified? I want to learn only this from you: did you receive the Spirit from works of the law, or from faith in what you heard? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now ending with the flesh? Did you experience so many things in vain? – if indeed it was in vain. Does, then, the one who supplies the Spirit to you and works mighty deeds among you do so from works of the law or from faith in what you heard? Thus Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.

Realize then that it is those who have faith who are children of Abraham. Scripture, which saw in advance that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, foretold the good news to Abraham, saying, Through you shall all the nations be blessed. Consequently, those who have faith are blessed along with Abraham who had faith. For all who depend on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, Cursed be everyone who does not persevere in doing all the things written in the book of the law. And that no one is justified before God by the law is clear, for the one who is righteous by faith will live. But the law does not depend on faith; rather,the one who does these things will live by them. Christ ransomed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written,Cursed be everyone who hangs on a tree, that the blessing of Abraham might be extended to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”


Many people are arriving from the Province of Quebec and it is a joy to see them.

(Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Redeemer given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words.)

I call you My Brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters to have faith in Me. Faith in Me is what will save you. The works of the law, which is what the Jews did, will never save you. If you believe in Me and do all that I told you such as going to church regularly, following the commandments, repent of your sins, loving your Creator, your Savior and the Holy Spirit and loving all your brothers and sisters, I can tell you that one day you will be with Me in paradise.

What is faith? Faith is a gift from God and He is ready to grant this gift to all those who are ready to receive it. It is a very special grace, which the Father wishes to give to every person living in the world. He wants every person to believe in Him as the Creator of heaven and earth and of every thing in the world. Every human being comes from the Father. You have to believe that He is there working ceaselessly so that you will reach your destiny. You are to believe in Me, His Son, who came on earth to save you all. You are also called to believe in the third Person of the Holy Trinity, the Holy Spirit. He is at work in every person who believes and He wants to bring you to holiness. Believe with all your heart and you will be the friend of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. I bless you all.

Father Melvin
