The Coming of Elijah

Dear friends,
A reading from the Gospel of St. 
Mark (9:9-13
          As Jesus and the Apostles were coming down from the mountain, he charged them not to relate what they had seen to anyone, except when the Son of Man had risen from the dead. So the three Apostles kept the matter to themselves, questioning what rising from the dead meant. They then asked him, “Why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?” He told them, “Elijah will indeed come first and restore all things, yet how is it written regarding the Son of Man that he must suffer greatly and be treated with contempt? But I tell you that Elijah has come and they did to him whatever they pleased, as it is written of him.”


          I had a good number of visitors to Our Lady of Prince Edward Island’s chapel. There were some from Ontario, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. The week before some came all the way from British Columbia. I am home these days and I am always ready to receive you especially now before the snow starts.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,

          “I love you My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters spread in every country of the world. I am never far from any of you. One of the great prophets of the Old Testament was the Prophet Elijah. He spoke a lot about my coming into the world and he called the Jewish people to believe in our Heavenly Father and to follow His commandments. It was told that Elijah would return just before My coming into the world. In fact he came but the people did not receive him and at the end he was martyred. His name is St. John the Baptist. He is the second Elijah. His story is written in the New Testament for he prepared the people for My coming. He called them to the Jordan River to receive the baptism of repentance and he is the one who baptized Me in that river. St. John the Baptist pointed Me out to the people at My baptism. He is a great saint. He is another great person who is there to help you believe that I am the Messiah, the Savior of the world. I bless you all. “

          Father Melvin
