God’s House and People

Dear Friends,
A reading from the First Letter of St. Peter (
Rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, insincerity, envy, and all slander; like newborn infants, long for pure spiritual milk so that through it you may grow into salvation, for you have tasted that the Lord is good. Come to him, a living stone, rejected by human beings but chosen and precious in the sight of God, and, like living stones, let yourselves be built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
For it says in scripture: “Behold, I am laying a stone in Zion, a cornerstone, chosen and precious, and whoever believes in it shall not be put to shame.” Therefore, its value is for you who have faith, but for those without faith: “The stone which the builders rejected has become the cornerstone,” and “A stone that will make people stumble, and a rock that will make them fall.” They stumble by disobeying the word, as is their destiny.
But you are “a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of his own, so that you may announce the praises” of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were “no people” but now you are God’s people; you “had not received mercy” but now you have received mercy.


          Yesterday morning all the trees were of a silver white colour as they were covered with ice. It seems as if we were living in a completely different world. In the afternoon all the ice was gone.

Below you will find the message of Our Lord, the Son of God, given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
“You belong to a chosen race My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters who accept Me as your Savior. You are part of the people of God. You are set apart to praise and glorify your God for indeed you are a chosen priesthood and a holy nation. So do not live with malice in your heart and do not walk around with envy or deceit. Do not slander any people because that is sinful. Come follow Me and follow My example that I showed you while I was living on earth. I was rejected by My brothers and sisters but I was accepted as precious in the eyes of My Father in heaven. I came into the world to bring you mercy, this great gift from My heart. My mercy will have no end but you need to repent of all your sins and indeed I will have mercy on you. I love you with all My heart. I am full of mercy for you.”

          Father Melvin
