The Visit of the Shepherds
A reading from St. Luke’s Gospel (2:15-20):
When the angels went away from them to heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go, then, to Bethlehem to see this thing that has taken place, which the Lord has made known to us.” So they went in haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the infant lying in the manger. When they saw this, they made known the message that had been told them about this child. All who heard it were amazed by what had been told them by the shepherds. And Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart. Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, just as it had been told to them.
When eight days were completed for his circumcision, he was named Jesus, the name given him by the angel before he was conceived in the womb.
I was supposed to go to the Province of Quebec this morning but it has been postponed for a week. I pray that everything will turn out ok. Thank you for all that you are doing for me and for all your prayers.
Below you will find the message of Our Blessed Mother given to Father Melvin. She spoke to him these words:
“I bless you My son Melvin and all My sons and daughters living on earth with great faith in My Son Jesus, your Savior. At the birth of Jesus at Bethlehem in a stable, the shepherds, who were taking care of the sheep nearby, were visited by angels who told them of the birth of the Messiah and Lord. Then the shepherds came to the place where Jesus was born and found everything that the angels had told them. They were very happy and they praised and glorified God. Yes, you are privileged to believe in your Savior who brought you the light of the Gospel and wonderful graces through His suffering and death on the cross. Remain attach to Jesus, My Son and Your Lord, and you will be blessed on earth and then forever in heaven. Follow the Church He founded and you will be on the right path that leads to the Kingdom of God. I bless you all.”
