Our Future Destiny
A reading from Saint Paul’s Second Letter to the Corinthians (2 Cor 5:1-10):
For we know that if our earthly dwelling, a tent, should be destroyed, we have a building from God, a dwelling not made with hands, eternal in heaven. For in this tent we groan, longing to be further clothed with our heavenly habitation if indeed, when we have taken it off, we shall not be found naked. For while we are in this tent we groan and are weighed down, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be further clothed, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. Now the one who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who has given us the Spirit as a first installment.
So we are always courageous, although we know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yet we are courageous, and we would rather leave the body and go home to the Lord. Therefore, we aspire to please him, whether we are at home or away. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive recompense, according to what he did in the body, whether good or evil.
I celebrate Holy Mass every day in the chapel of Our Lady of Prince Edward Island in Palmer Road, PEI. People still send me stipends for Masses and I celebrate all these Masses. It is always a joy for me to offer these Masses for all those who need them. May the Lord and Our Blessed Mother bless you.
Below you will find the message of Our Blessed Mother given to Father Melvin. She spoke to him these words,
“I want you all, My son Melvin and all My sons and daughters living in the world, to be filled with hope. Have great hope for the wonderful things that lie in the future. The future I am referring to is heaven, where I went body and soul after My stay on earth was over. I went to join My Son Jesus and of course I am with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit. You cannot really have a vision of what heaven looks like. Any idea you may have is absolutely nothing to the wonder of heaven. You are all called to enter this place of glory one day, but you need to follow My Son Jesus who is your only Savior. Follow Him and you will be with us the day you will leave the earth. There are many saints here in heaven, in fact millions of them. Work hard My dear sons and daughters and you too will be saints in this glorious place. Follow the commandments and have a great love for the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and love all your neighbors. Forgive all those who have hurt you in any way. Then you will be with Me, your Mother, who loves you.”
