The Samaritan Woman (3)
A reading from the Gospel of Saint John 4, 27 – 42:
At that moment Jesus’ disciples returned, and were amazed that he was talking with a woman, but still no one said, “What are you looking for?” or “Why are you talking with her?” The woman left her water jar and went into the town and said to the people, “Come see a man who told me everything I have done. Could he possibly be the Messiah?” They went out of the town and came to him. Meanwhile, the disciples urged him, “Rabbi, eat.” But he said to them, “I have food to eat of which you do not know.” So the disciples said to one another, “Could someone have brought him something to eat?” Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of the one who sent me and to finish his work. Do you not say, ‘In four months’ the harvest will be here? I tell you, look up and see the fields ripe for the harvest. The reaper is already receiving his payment and gathering crops for eternal life, so that the sower and reaper can rejoice together. For here the saying is verified that ‘One sows and another reaps.’ I sent you to reap what you have not worked for; others have done the work, and you are sharing the fruits of their work.”
Many of the Samaritans of that town began to believe in him because of the word of the woman who testified, “He told me everything I have done.” When the Samaritans came to him, they invited him to stay with them, and he stayed there two days. Many more began to believe in him because of his word; for we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this is truly the savior of the world.”
I am always short of money and it is great to have friends who can help me. I have a bill to pay and it is $1,500 and I do not know where I can find this money. Please if you can help me please send me what you can. I need this money by Thursday this week. May the Lord bless you all for all your generosity.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words, “Come My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters and believe that I am truly the Messiah as the Samaritan woman believed. She met Me just for a short time and believe that I was her Savior. She left the well and went to town to tell the people about Me with the result that many people came to the well to see Me. They invited Me to stay with them and I accepted and went to live with them for two days. After two days many more people believed in Me. Great joy filled My heart when I saw all these believers who had never met Me before.
My dear friends, be like this woman who listened to Me and accepted everything I told her. She became a missionary and called the people of the town to come and see Me. At the end they believed that I was the one sent by God the Father to save the people. You too, My friends, have to walk with Me. You know that a new era is coming but it cannot start before you believe in Me with all your heart. This era will be a great time of peace and joy. I will give you many wonderful graces to help you to live in union with Me and to love one another and to be happy. I bless you all.”
