The Healing of the Blind Beggar
A reading from St. Luke’s Gospel (18:35-43):
Now as [Jesus] approached Jericho a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging, and hearing a crowd going by, he inquired what was happening. They told him, “Jesus of Nazareth is passing by.” He shouted, “Jesus, Son of David, have pity on me!” The people walking in front rebuked him, telling him to be silent, but he kept calling out all the more, “Son of David, have pity on me!” Then Jesus stopped and ordered that he be brought to him; and when he came near, Jesus asked him, “What do you want me to do for you?” He replied, “Lord, please let me see.” Jesus told him, “Have sight; your faith has saved you.” He immediately received his sight and followed him, giving glory to God. When they saw this, all the people gave praise to God.
I ask you all to pray today for the meeting I will have at my place. Some people will come to talk about the last year and what we are to do in the future. I would like to begin soon the weekly meetings of prayer for the Families for Jesus. I pray that we will soon begin.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord, the Son of God, given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
“Believe that I have all power My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters who believe in Me. You know that I am the Son of God, the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity. When I was on earth I used this power at times to perform miracles especially the healing of sick people and also those who were blind, mute or deaf. I even brought some of the dead back to life. Today I have the same power as I did then. I am working in powerful ways among you at all times. I have given the power of healing to many of My followers and when they pray for the healing of sick people, many of these people become well. My power of healing goes through those chosen ones. Those who have the power of healing are to be respected for they are My true disciples. Their work is authenticated through the healings brought about by them. Love them and come to listen to them. I love you and bless you all.”
