Jesus on the Road to Emmaus

Dear Friends,
A reading from St. Luke’s Gospel (
[Jesus] said to [the men on the road], “Oh, how foolish you are! How slow of heart to believe all that the prophets spoke! Was it not necessary that the Messiah should suffer these things and enter into his glory?” Then beginning with Moses and all the prophets, he interpreted to them what referred to him in all the scriptures. As they approached the village to which they were going, he gave the impression that he was going on farther. But they urged him, “Stay with us, for it is nearly evening and the day is almost over.” So he went in to stay with them.
And it happened that, while he was with them at table, he took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them. With that their eyes were opened and they recognized him, but he vanished from their sight. Then they said to each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he spoke to us on the way and opened the scriptures to us?” So they set out at once and returned to Jerusalem where they found gathered together the eleven and those with them who were saying, “The Lord has truly been raised and has appeared to Simon!” Then the two recounted what had taken place on the way and how he was made known to them in the breaking of the bread.


          I thank the Lord that soon I will celebrate another birthday. The date is March 2nd. Please pray that the Lord gives me a special blessing on that day.

          Below you will find the message of Our Lord, the Son of God, given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
“Have faith in Me My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters living in the world today. As the two men were on the way to Emmaus, I joined them but they did not recognize Me. As they did not believe in My resurrection, I explained to them what was written about Me in the scriptures. At the end when we were at table eating, I gave them the bread I had blessed and then their eyes were opened and they recognized Me. I then disappeared from their sight. Now they believed in Me with all their hearts and quickly they returned to Jerusalem to tell the Apostles and others what they had experienced.
“My dear friends, this true story is given to you to help you too to believe in My resurrection. I am now the Resurrected Jesus who will never suffer again and I will never die again. Come believe in Me with all your heart for indeed I am your Savior, the Son of God, who was sent by the Father to save you. You need to believe in Me if you want to be saved. Open your hearts and I will fill them with My love, peace and joy and give you all the graces you need. I love you all.”

          Father Melvin
