The Roles of the Disciples
A reading from the Gospel of Saint Luke 22, 24 – 30:
Then an argument broke out among the disciples about which of them should be regarded as the greatest. Jesus said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them and those in authority over them are addressed as Benefactors’, but among you it shall not be so. Rather, let the greatest among you be as the youngest, and the leader as the servant. For who is greater: the one seated at table or the one who serves? Is it not the one seated at table? I am among you as the one who serves. It is you who have stood by Me in My trials; and I confer a kingdom on you, just as My Father has confirmed one on Me, that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom; and you will sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.”
We had a beautiful sunny day today and it was not cold. We are supposed to get some snow overnight. That’s the storm that hit New York city during the last few days. We do not expect to get too much snow. I thank all those who sent me some money during the last few days. It will help me to pay some of my bills. I would still need some money to pay the rest of my bills. May the Lord bless you all.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
“I love you My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters who spend this Lenten season in union with Me. Before the Last Supper began, the Apostles started arguing among themselves about which of them was the greatest. I spoke to them saying that the kings of the Gentiles lord it over their people and the authority over them are addressed as ‘Benefactors’. I told the Apostles that it will not be so among them. I told them that the greatest among them will be the youngest and the leader will be the servant. I told them that I was among them as the one who serves. I added that I would confer a kingdom on them just as My Father has conferred a kingdom on Me. The Apostles will eat and drink at table in My kingdom and they will judge the twelve tribes of Israel.
So, My dear friends, if you follow Me inded you will be in My kingdom and you will be blessed in heaven. I want you all to be with Me in paradise where you will live forever in peace, love and joy. I love you all.”
