Peter Heals Aeneas at Lydda
A reading from the Acts of the Apostles 9, 32 – 35.
As Peter was passing through every region, he went down to the holy
ones living in Lydda. There he found a man named Aeneas, who had been
confined to bed for eight years, for he was paralyzed. Peter said to
him, “Aeneas, Jesus Christ heals you. Get up and make your bed.” He
got up at once. And all the inhabitants of Lydda and Sharon saw him,
and they turned to the Lord.
We had a beautiful sunny day today and it was not cold. However,
tomorrow we will have some rain for a change. We will have rain for
the next three days.
My friend, Francis, who went to the Philippines for two months phoned
me today and he will come back on Monday next week. I do not have any
money to go and get him at the airport. If some can help me I would be
very happy indeed. I would need at least $50.00 to go there and come
back. I will need more money to buy food and to get heating oil. Thank
you all of you who will help me.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior. Jesus gave me
the words written below: “I love you My brother Melvin and all My
brothers and sisters who believe in Me with all your hearts. The
passage from the Bible today shows how St. Peter healed this man who
had been paralyzed for eight years. He simply said these words,
“Aeneas, Jesus Christ heals you. Get up and make your bed.” With these
words this man was completely healed. He immediately got up and did
what he was told. Yes, when I was on earth, I healed many, many people
for I have all power. Anyone who believes in Me and has received the
gift of healing can do the same as I did. I call you again, My
friends, to pray and go to church regularly, so that your faith may
grow every day. I love you and I bless you.”
