One in Christ

Dear Friends,
A reading from Saint Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians (2:11-22):

Remember that at one time you, Gentiles in the flesh, called the uncircumcision by those called the circumcision, which is done in the flesh by human hands, were at that time without Christ, alienated from the community of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, without hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have become near by the blood of Christ.
For he is our peace, he who made both one and broke down the dividing wall of enmity, through his flesh, abolishing the law with its commandments and legal claims, that he might create in himself one new person in place of the two, thus establishing peace, and might reconcile both with God, in one body, through the cross, putting that enmity to death by it. He came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near, for through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father.
So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the holy ones and members of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the capstone. Through him the whole structure is held together and grows into a temple sacred in the Lord; in him you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.


          Although it was sunny yesterday, we had rain last evening and it will continue for some days. We had a beautiful week last week. Thank you for all your prayers for the intentions of Our Blessed Mother.

          Below you will find the message of Our Lord, the Son of God, given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
          “You are all one in Me My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters, as you have become near to Me by the shedding of My blood. I do not want to have Jews and Gentiles but just one people who honor Me and follow Me. Today there are many people in every country of the world who believe in Me and so they are one big family, My family. So those who are united with Me are no longer strangers but you are fellow members of the Kingdom of God, which I founded when I was in the world. My household is My Church founded on the Apostles and this Church is sacred to Me. So be faithful and strong members of My Church and obey My teachings, and one day you will be in My Kingdom which will be perfected in heaven. I call you all close to Me and I bless you.”

          Father Melvin
