The Healing of a Boy with a Demon
A reading from St. Mark’s Gospel (9:14-26):
When Jesus and the three Apostles came to the disciples, they saw a large crowd around them and scribes arguing with them. Immediately on seeing him, the whole crowd was utterly amazed. They ran up to him and greeted him. He asked them, “What are you arguing about with them?” Someone from the crowd answered him, “Teacher, I have brought to you my son possessed by a mute spirit. Wherever it seizes him, it throws him down, he foams at the mouth, grinds his teeth, and becomes rigid. I asked your disciples to drive it out, but they were unable to do so.” He said to them in reply, “O faithless generation, how long will I be with you? How long will I endure you? Bring him to me.” They brought the boy to him. And when he saw him, the spirit immediately threw the boy into convulsions. And he fell to the ground, he began to roll around and foam at the mouth. Then he questioned his father, “How long has this been happening to him?” He replied, “Since childhood. It has often thrown him into fire and into water to kill him. But if you can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.” Jesus said to him, “If you can! Everything is possible to one who has faith.” Then the boy’s father cried out, “I do believe, help my unbelief!” Jesus, on seeing a crowd rapidly gathering, rebuked the unclean spirit and said to it, “Mute and deaf spirit, I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.” Shouting and throwing the boy into convulsions, it came out.
We had a beautiful sunny day yesterday and the farmers were happy as they continued to dig out their potatoes. They will soon be finished.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
“I embrace you My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters living in the world. I call you all to believe in Me with all your heart. When I was on earth I chased away many, many evil spirits. I even chased away evil spirits that inhabited children as you read in the Gospel. I just pronounced these words, ‘I command you, come out of him,’ and the evil spirit left him and the boy was freed. Today there many people, who are possessed by evil spirits, because they have been involved in the occult and in New Age. If you are involved in such things you will be taken over by these spirits and you will have much trouble. Remain in union with Me and these spirits will never trouble you. I bless you all. ”
