Paul in Ephesus
A reading from the Acts of the Apostles 19, 1 – 12:
While Apollos was in Corinth, Paul traveled through the interior of the country and came down to Ephesus where he found some disciples. He said to them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you became believers?” They answered him, “We have never even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.” He said, “How were you baptized?” They replied, “With the baptism of John.” Paul then said, “John baptized with the baptism of repentance, telling the people to believe in the one who was to come after him, that is, in Jesus.” When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied. Altogether there were about twelve men.
He entered the synagogue, and for three months debated boldly with persuasive arguments about the kingdom of God. But when some in their obstinacy and disbelief disparaged the Way before the assembly, he withdrew and took his disciples with him and began to hold daily discussions in the lecture hall of Tyrannus. This continued for two years with the result that all the inhabitants of the province of Asia heard the word of the Lord, Jews and Greek alike. So extraordinary were the mighty deeds God accomplished at the hands of Paul that when face cloths or aprons that touched his skin were applied to the sick, their diseases left them and the evil spirits came out of them.
A few years ago a seer came to the chapel of Our Lady of Prince Edward Island and she came from the USA. She knelt down before the altar and prayed. After she got up she came to talk to me and told me that she had seen Our Blessed Mother holding the child Jesus. She was dressed just like Our Lady of Prince Edward Island. Already six people have come to the chapel and they had a vision of Our Blessed Mother near the altar. Thank you dearest Mother for having appeared to them.
Below you will find the message of Our Blessed Mother given to Father Melvin. She spoke to him these words,
“I bless you My son Melvin and all My sons and daughters who have great faith in My Son Jesus and who accept Me as your heavenly Mother. I loved Saint Paul as he went from city to city teaching the Jews and the Greeks about Jesus, My Son. He was not afraid to argue with the Jews that My Son was the Savior of the world. He is the one who established the Kingdom of God and all the people are called to enter the Kingdom. I call you all to continue your work for your Lord and Savior that more and more people will come to believe in Him. I am praying always for the conversion of the people of the world that they may leave their worldly pleasure and come and follow My Son Jesus. Pray too for the conversion of all those who do not believe. Do not let Satan take hold of those people and cause them to follow the wrong way that leads not to heaven but to the other place.
Remember I am your Mother who wants the salvation of all My children. Also pray that the horrible sin of abortion may stop. The killing of these unborn children is a great suffering for Me. I am the Mother of Life and I want every child that is conceived to be born and to live for each one of them has the right to life and to come to know Jesus, My Son and your Savior. I bless you all.”
P.S. We had a nice sunny day today but it was cooler.
