The Parable of the Weeds among the Wheat
A reading from the Gospel of Saint Matthew 13, 24 – 31:
Jesus proposed another parable to them, “The kingdom of heaven may be liked to a man who sowed good seed in his field. While everyone was asleep his enemy came and sowed weeds all through the wheat, and then went off. When the crop grew and bore fruit, the weeds appeared as well. The slaves of the householder came to him and said, ‘Master, did you not sow good seed in your field? Where have the weeds come from?’ He answered, ‘An enemy has done this.’ His slaves said to him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’ He replied, ‘No, if you pull up the weeds you might uproot the wheat along with them. Let them grow together until harvest; then at harvest time I will say to the harvesters, ‘First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles for burning; but gather the wheat into my barn.”
I went to see my brother-in-law today. He is in palliative care in hospital. He is getting weaker and he can hardly eat. Please pray for him and for his wife who is my sister Esther. Thank you very much.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words, “I call you My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters to come and follow Me along the way I showed you. I am the one who sow good seed like the man who sowed good seed of wheat in his field. Normally these seeds should produce wonderful fruit. However, there is another who sows bad seed and that one is the devil.
The good seed I sow in your hearts is the gift of faith, love and joy. I sow also mercy so that you can forgive those who have hurt you in any way. I also sow in your heart the gift of prayer and great belief in the Holy Eucharist so that you believe that I am truly present in the Eucharist. All I sow in your heart should produce great fruit that comes from receiving the gift of faith. The devil, though, comes and sows doubts in your heart so you will not believe what I have told you and what My Church teaches you. That is why you know that some people have been baptized and after awhile they stop going to church and to pray. The devil has come with his bad seed. Instead of throwing the evil one out, they let him enter their heart so he could cause them to loose their faith.
You must remain united to Me and never allow the devil a chance to do you harm. Those who have received My gifts and have lived all their lives according to them, will be saved but those who throw away these gifts of mine will end up in hell. Come now, My friends, and pray every day and remain close to Me and you will be blessed. I love you all and I want you all with Me in heaven one day.”
