Live by Faith in the Lord
A reading from Saint Paul’s Letter to the Romans 10, 1 – 13:
Brothers and sisters, my heart’s desire and prayer to God on their behalf is for salvation. I testify with regard to them that they have zeal for God but it is not discerning. For, in their unawareness of the righteousness that comes from God and their attempt to establish their own righteousness, they did not submit to the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for the justification of everyone who has faith.
Moses writes about the righteousness that comes from the law, “The one who does these things will live by them.” But the righteousness that comes from faith says, “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will go up into heaven?’ (that is, to bring Christ down) or ‘Who will go down into the abyss?’ (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead).” But what does it say?
“The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart”
(that is, the word of faith that we preach), for, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For one believes with the heart and so is justified, and one confesses with the mouth and so is saved. For the scripture says, “No one who believes in him will be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, the same Lord is Lord of all, enriching all who call upon him. For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
I am praying and many are praying with me that the money will come in so that we can start the building of the two monasteries and the Shrine to Our Lord of Prince Edward Island. There is news that the money should come in shortly but the judge and lawyer are forever asking for money. At this time they are asking for $3,500 to end their work so I can receive the money. Please pray that this money will soon come in.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
“My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters, I call you all to live according to the faith you have been given and never reject this wonderful gift that you have. You know that it is absolutely necessary to believe in Me if you want to be saved. If you believe in Me, Your Redeemer, you will follow all that I have told you especially to love God with all your heart and soul and to love your neighbor as yourself. You are to forgive all those who have hurt you in any way and Our Heavenly Father will forgive you all your sins. I have called you many times to pray every day and especially your rosary and to go to church every Sunday and during the week if it is possible. Do not accept the falsehood that so many people today try to get you to believe. One of the worst is New Age and so many protestant churches tell you that abortion is not sinful or that same-sex marriage is not wrong. Do not believe these things for they do not come from Me, your Savior, but these teachings come from the devil. Follow My Church and you will be following Me. I love you all and I bless you all.”
P.S. We have a cloudy day but there is not much rain.
