The Resurrection of Jesus
A reading from the Gospel of Saint Matthew 28, 1 – 10:
After the sabbath, as the first day of the week was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, approached, rolled back a stone, and sat upon it. His appearance was like lightning and his clothing was white as snow. The guards were shaken with fear of him and became like dead men. Then the angel said to the women in reply, “Do not be afraid! I know that you are seeking Jesus the crucified. He is not here, for he has been raised just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell the disciples: “He has been raised from the dead, and he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. Behold, I have told you.” Then they went away quickly from the tomb, fearful yet overjoyed, and ran to announce this to the disciples. And behold, Jesus met them on their way and greeted them. They approached, embraced his feet, and did him homage. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.”
I thank the Lord for a beautiful sunny day on Saturday and it will also be sunny on Easter Sunday. Yesterday we had some snow and freezing rain fell for a good time so that all the cars and roads and in front of the house, there was only freezing rain and it was very slippery. However, with the warm sun of Holy Saturday a lot of snow and ice melted and there were many bare places. May the Lord bless you all on the great Feast of Easter.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
“I give you all My Easter Blessing especially you My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters who have celebrated My Great Feast. On Good Friday I was nailed to the cross and I died and was buried. I was in the tomb the whole day Saturday but early on Sunday I came back to life. The angel came and took away the stone so that the women could enter the tomb and see that I was not there. Yes, I had come alive and I had left the tomb. The first person I visited after My resurrection was My Mother. I went to greet Her and to show Her that I was risen from the dead. She was filled with great joy to see Me alive. She knew that I would not stay in the tomb but in three days I would come alive again. Now I was reborn with a spiritual body so that I could go through any walls and show Myself to anyone I wish. The two women when they left the tomb to go and tell My disciples that I was risen, they saw Me as I appeared to them. They came and knelt down and embraced My feet and did Me homage. I spoke to them to not be afraid and to go and tell the disciples that I will go and see them in Galilee. They went and told the Apostles all I had said to them.
Come My friends and believe that I am risen from the dead never to die again. To prove that I was truly risen, I showed Myself to the Apostles for 40 days and after seeing Me those days, they had no problem believing that I was resurrected from the dead. Believe the Apostles for they tell the truth. I give you all today a very special grace to help you follow Me every day of your life. I bless you all.”
