Rules for the New Life

Dear Friends,
A reading from Saint Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians (4:25-32):

          Therefore, putting away falsehood, speak the truth, each one to his neighbor, for we are members one of another. Be angry but do not sin; do not let the sun set on your anger, and do not leave room for the devil. The thief must no longer steal, but rather labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with one in need. No foul language should come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for needed edification, that it may impart grace to those who hear. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with which you were sealed for the day of redemption. All bitterness, fury, anger, shouting, and reviling must be removed from you, along with all malice. And be kind to one another, compassionate, forgiving one another as God has forgiven you in Christ.


          How wonderful it was yesterday to see the sun again. It was warmer but there was wind. It is sunny again today.

          Below you will find the message of Our Blessed Mother giver to Father Melvin. She spoke to him these words,
          “Be filled with New Life, My son Melvin and all My sons and daughters who believe in My Son Jesus. This new life must show itself by having a spiritual life, by the way you speak and by the work you do. To live a spiritual life, you have to pray regularly every day and you have to go to Holy Mass every Sunday and receive Holy Communion if you have repented of your sins. As part of your spiritual life, you should pray your rosary every day. You need to have a great devotion to My Son Jesus and to Me, your Mother. You should speak with soft words without ever uttering falsehood or angry words, and there should be no shouting or bitterness and speaking bad about people. Let your words be full of love for the persons with which you are speaking and show them your love for your Savior and for Me. You must do honest work. All should work to get what you need such as food, clothing, a house and to take care of your family and help the poor.
“I call you all to be kind to one another and to forgive those who have hurt you in any way. I love you and I bless you.”

          Father Melvin
