The Conditions of Discipleship
A reading from the Gospel of Saint Luke 9, 23 – 27:
Then Jesus said to all, “If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. What profit is there for one to gain the whole world yet lose or forfeit himself? Whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels. Truly I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God.”
I wish to thank those who have sent me money during the last few days. They sent the money via Paypal which can be found at the website of Our Lady of PEI. I still need $600 in order to pay what I owe the court. If you would kindly send me this money in the next few days I would be very pleased indeed. May the Lord bless all those who have sent me money and also those who will send me money in the near future.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
“Come and be My disciples, My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters who believe in Me. In the message from the Gospel of Saint Luke, you have My words. If you wish to be My disciple, then you must deny yourself and take up your cross daily and follow Me. By these words, I wish to call you not to follow your own ideas and objectives but come and do what I ask of you. I want you to follow the mission I gave you knowing in doing My will you will be saved. So many today follow their own will, which is often influenced by the evil one. He calls them to pursue money and to enjoy all the pleasures of the world. He induces you to drink alcohol and to take drugs and to follow the pleasure of the flesh. In doing this, you are living far from Me and you are destroying your life. If I have called you to the married life, then follow what My Church teaches you. Live in love with your partner and never say yes to abortion for this is the killing of your son or daughter, the great gift which My Father gave you. You are to love every child from the moment of conception and never entertain the idea of abortion for it is a horrible sin, the killing of a innocent child. All have to work and follow all the rules you were given to do and all you were asked to do. If you are asked to be celibate then ask Me for the graces you need to live a celibate life and I am your example for I lived a celibate life when I was on earth. Be a person of prayer and come to Holy Mass every Sunday and during the week if it is possible. I extend My hand to you so take it and walk with Me every day and do not be afraid to carry your cross and I will help you to carry it. I love you with all My heart.”
P.S. It was cloudy in the morning today but the sun came out in the afternoon.
