Come Believe in the Lord
A reading from Saint Paul’s Letter to the Romans 10, 14 – 21:
But how can they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how can they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone to preach? And how can people preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring the good news!” But not everyone has heeded the good news, for Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed what was heard from us?” Thus faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the word of Christ. But, I ask, did they not hear? Certainly they did; for
“Their voice has gone forth to all the earth, and their words to the ends of the world.”
But I ask, did not Israel understand? First Moses says: “I will make you jealous of those who are not a nation; with a senseless nation I will make you angry.”
Then Isaiah speaks boldly and says: “I was found by those who were not seeking me; I revealed myself to those who were not asking for me.”
But regarding Israel he says, “All day long I stretched out my hands to a disobedient and contentious people.”
The Catholic Church is the Church founded by Our Lord Jesus on St. Peter when He said to him, “You are Peter and upon this rock I will build My Church.” Peter died in Rome a martyr and all the Bishops of Rome are the successors of Peter. Peter’s remains are kept under the main altar in St. Peter’s Basilica. Rome has just published the number of Catholics in the world. There are now just about 1,300,000,000 Catholics and this is written as one billion three hundred million people in the Church founded by Our Lord. It is by far the largest church in the world.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
“There are people preaching the word of God everywhere so, come and believe in Me My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters and stay united to Me. The Apostles and the successors of the Apostles have gone all over the world teaching all that I have preached to you and now it is written in the Bible. It is the duty of My Church to go everywhere to teach all those who have opened their hearts to Me. Indeed they have gone to all the earth and their words has reached to the end of the world. However, there are some who refuse to believe in Me and in their pride they only want to believe in themselves. I tell you My friends that you cannot save yourselves. I am your only Savior and you need to believe in Me and do what I told you in order to be saved. Come do not follow what the world tells you but kneel down and give yourselves totally to Me and take My hand and walk with Me. I love you all.”
P.S. The sun did come out at times today and it was very nice.
