Peter’s Denial Foretold
A reading from St. Mark’s Gospel (14:27-31):
Then Jesus said to [the Apostles], “All of you will have your faith shaken, for it is written: ‘I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be dispersed.’ But after I have been raised up, I shall go before you to Galilee.” Peter said to him, “Even though all should have their faith shaken, mine will not be.” Then Jesus said to him, “Amen, I say to you, this very night before the cock crows twice you will deny me three times.” But he vehemently replied, “Even though I should have to die with you, I will not deny you.” And they all spoke similarly.

Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. He spoke to him these words,
“I suffer very much My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters on earth if you should deny Me. Look at what My great friend St. Peter did during My Passion. He denied Me three times. However, he repented of what he did and I forgave him. He never did anything like this afterwards. You do not understand fully how hurt I am when you commit sin. Because of your sins, I relive My Passion and Death all over again. I call you My brothers and sisters to call upon Me every day for the graces and strength you need to avoid sin and to follow Me. Sin as you know is an offence against God who created you and who keeps you alive every day. You must walk with Me and do what I tell you and not what the world tells you. The world often follows the path of the evil one. Those who follow Me do what is right and good, and they will be blessed and be filled with peace. I love you all.”
