Communal Life

Communal Life

A reading from the Acts of the Apostles 1, 42 – 47:

The baptized devoted themselves to the teaching of the Apostles and to the communal life, to the breaking of the bread and to the prayers. Awe came upon everyone, and many wonders and signs were done through the Apostles. All who believed were together and had all things in common, they would sell their property and possessions and divide them among all according to each one’s need. Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple area and to breaking bread in their homes. They ate their meals with exultation and sincerity of heart, praising God and enjoying favor with all the people. And everyday the Lord added to their numbers those who were being saved.

At one healing Mass, a woman ask for prayers for herself and then asked for prayers for a friend of hers who was in hospital and the doctors could not find what was the matter with her. She was very sick and simply laid in bed. I prayed for this woman in hospital and the next day in the evening she phoned me. She told me that when she woke up in the morning, she felt completely healed. She got up and asked the nurse to give her all her clothes. She dressed and waited for the doctor to release her from hospital. When the doctor came he checked all her vital signs and found that everything was all right and released her. Then her husband came and took her home.
Thank you Lord for healing this woman.

Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,

“You are full members of the church, My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters who follow Me every day. At the beginning of the Church soon after the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, the Christians lived together as a community. They loved to go to the Temple to pray, to take part in the Holy Eucharist with the Apostles at their homes and many would eat together in the evening. They were full of joy being filled with the Holy Spirit and following Me closely. They had great faith. I call you all to imitate these early Christians by going to Holy Mass as often as you can and to receive Me in Holy Communion. Come together often to pray the rosary and other prayers too. You will be blessed and many will come and join you. I bless you all.”

P.S. We had a warm sunny day on Tuesday. It came up to 27 degrees Celsius in the afternoon. It clouded over in the evening and we should have showers during the night and tomorrow. I thank the Lord for this wonderful day.
