Jesus Appears on the Road

Dear Friends,
A reading from Saint Luke’s Gospel (24:13-21):
Now that very day two of them were going to a village seven miles from Jerusalem called Emmaus, and they were conversing about all the things that had occurred. And it happened that while they were conversing and debating, Jesus himself drew near and walked with them, but their eyes were prevented from recognizing him. He asked them, “What are you discussing as you walk along?” They stopped, looking downcast. One of them, named Cleopas, said to him in reply, “Are you the only visitor to Jerusalem who does not know of the things that have taken place there in these days?” And he replied to them, “What sort of things?” They said to him, “The things that happened to Jesus the Nazarene, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people, how our chief priests and rulers both handed him over to a sentence of death and crucified him. But we were hoping that he would be the one to redeem Israel; and besides all this, it is now the third day since this took place.


          We had a beautiful sunny day yesterday for the Feast of Easter. A lot of the snow melted, as it was nearly 10 degrees Celsius. I had a wonderful evening meal at my friends with their children. The day was filled with joy for me.

Below you will find the message of Our Lord, the Son of God, given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
“Continue in My joy My dear brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters who celebrated My Easter Feast yesterday. There was great joy also in heaven with all the angels and saints. My dear Mother also blesses all of you.
“Pray My dear friends that those who do not believe in Me may receive the gift of faith and may come to join you with great faith and open their hearts to receive all the gifts that I have for them. Still today there are some who mock Me and say all kinds of falsehood against Me. Those follow the evil one and if they do not change they will not be saved. Pray also for your great Pope Francis who is a man after My own heart. Pray that he can head the Church for many years. Pray too for the priests that their faith be strong and they follow the commandments of My Father and be a good example to all the believers. I love you all.”

Father Melvin
