The Man with a Withered Hand
A reading from the Gospel of Saint Matthew 12, 9 – 14:
Jesus went into their synagogue. And behold, there was a man there who had a withered hand. They questioned him, “Is it lawful to cure on the sabbath?” so that they might accuse him. Jesus said to them, “Which one of you who has a sheep that falls into a pit on the sabbath will not take hold of it and lift it out? How much more valuable a person is than a sheep. So it is lawful to do good on the sabbath.” Then he said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He stretch it out, and it was restored as sound as the other. But the Pharisees went out and took counsel against him to put him to death.
We had a beautiful sunny day today Wednesday and a lot of the snow that fell yesterday melted. We will have rain tomorrow and the snow should all disappear. I hope this snow will soon end. I thank all those who sent me greetings at Easter and I thank those who sent me donations. May the Lord bless you all.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Redeemer given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
“I give you all a special Easter blessing My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters who celebrated Holy Week and My great feast of Easter. Mother Angelica of EWTN died on the day I rose from the dead. She is a very special friend of mine. She did very well to enhance My Church especially in the USA.
In the bible passage today, you see that I cured a man with a withered hand. He was sitting in the synagogue. After answering the Pharisees, I told the man to stretch out his hand and he did so and was completely cured. All the people there saw that this man did not have a withered hand any more. It is always My joy to cure any person who is sick or in need of a cure.
I ask you all to come to Me and I will heal you too. You know that I am the resurrection and the life. All good things come from Me. However, you must believe in Me and ask with great faith for your healing. I will surely listen to you. I bless you all.”
