One in Christ
A reading from St. Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians (2:11-22):
Therefore, remember that at one time you, Gentiles in the flesh, called the uncircumcision by those called the circumcision, which is done in the flesh by human hands, were at that time without Christ, alienated from the community of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, without hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have become near by the blood of Christ.
For he is our peace, he who made both one and broke down the dividing wall of enmity, through his flesh, abolishing the law with its commandments and legal claims, that he might create in himself one new person in place of the two, thus establishing peace, and might reconcile both with God, in one body, through the cross, putting that enmity to death by it. He came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near, for through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father.
So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the holy ones and members of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the Apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the capstone. Through him the whole structure is held together and grows into a temple sacred in the Lord; in him you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.
Again I wish to thank all those who have sent donations to help for the running of the chapel of Our Lady of Prince Edward Island. It costs to pay the electricity, the taxes, the heating oil, the telephone and other things. I have not paid all the bills yet. I thank the Lord for every gift I receive and I ask Him to bless those who are generous. May you receive many graces.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Redeemer given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words.
“I bless you all with all My heart who believe in Me especially you, My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters scattered all over the countries of the world. This is the greatest gift you can receive and I asked you all to do all you can to preserve this gift. Before My coming into the world the Gentiles believed in many pagan gods who were the fiction of their imagination. There is no such thing as a multitude of gods. I brought you the truth that there is only One God who is the Creator of everything in the world. He created all human beings and He keeps them in being at every minute. They are the only ones on earth who can come to know the One and Only God and live in union with Him. If you are Christians, then you know that in the One God there are three Divine Persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Today many of the Gentiles have accepted Me as their Savior and they pray regularly and go to church at least every Sunday. Those who do this and avoid sin will surely be in heaven with Me one day. Continue your walk with Me and accept My gifts and My graces I give you every day. I love you and I want you with Me at all times.”
