Peter Restores Tabitha to Life

A reading from the Acts of the Apostles 9, 36 – 43:

“Now in Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (which translated
means Dorcas). She was completely occupied with good deeds and
almsgiving. Now during those days she fell sick and died, so after
washing her, they laid her out in a room upstairs. Since Lydda was
near Joppa,  the disciples, hearing that Peter was there, sent two men
to him with the request, “Please come to us without delay.” So Peter
got up and went with them. When he arrived, they took him to the room
upstairs where all the widows came to him weeping and showing him the
tunics and cloaks this Dorcas had made while she was with them. Peter
sent them all out and knelt down and prayed. Then he turned to her
body and said, “Tabitha, rise up.” She opened her eyes, saw Peter, and
sat up. He gave her his hand and raised her up, and when he had called
the holy ones and the widows, he presented her alive. This became
known all over Joppa, and many came to believe in the Lord. And he
stayed a long time in Joppa with Simon, a tanner.”

It was cloudy all day Sunday and we got a bit of rain in the morning.
It was not windy and not cold. I thank all those who sent me some
money last week, but I am still short of $300. I do not have any
heating oil yet and it is cold at night. Please send me some money via
Paypal and I will be so happy to receive this money which I need as
soon as possible. May the Lord bless you and may He fill you with His
love and grace.

Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior. Jesus gave me
these words which are written below: “I bless you My brother Melvin
and all My brothers and sisters who have great faith in Me and who
pray every day and love to go to Holy Mass regularly.
From the quotation from the Acts of the Apostles, you see the   great
work that Saint Peter, the Apostle, did in a small town called Joppa.
There was this great follower of mine named Dorcas, who did great work
for the people there. However, one day she died and they called Saint
Peter to come over. He was not far away at a village called Lydda.
Peter came over and the people of Joppa told him everything that had
happened to this holy woman. So he went upstairs to the room were her
body was. He asked the people to leave the room and then he knelt down
and prayed. After his prayer, he spoke to Dorcas these words, “Get
up.” She opened her eyes and sat by the side of her bed. Then Saint
Peter called the people and they came and were full of joy to see the
dead woman alive again. The news spread throughout the whole town and
many became My followers. I am still healing people today for I do not
want them to suffer and die before their time. I call you all to
believe in Me as your Savior who loves you with all My heart. I love
you all.”

Peter Heals Aeneas at Lydda

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.”

Paul Visits Jerusalem

September 16, 2017

Paul Visits Jerusalem

A reading from the Acts of the Apostles 9, 23 – 30:

After a long time had passed, the Jews conspired to kill him, but
their plot became known to Paul. Now they were keeping watch on the
gates day and night so as to kill him, but his disciples took him one
night and let him down through an opening in the wall, lowering him in
a basket.
When he arrived in Jerusalem he tried to join the disciples, but they
were all afraid of him, not believing that he was a disciple. Then
Barnabas took charge of him and brought him to the Apostles, and he
reported to them how on the way he had seen the Lord and that he had
spoken to him, and how in Damascus he had spoken out boldly in the
name of Jesus. He moved about freely with them in Jerusalem, and spoke
out boldly in the name of Lord. He also spoke and debated with the
Hellenists, but they tried to kill him. And when the brothers heard of
this, they took him down to Caesarea and sent him on his way to
Tarsus.

We had a lovely sunny day today and it was warm. It was such a nice
day to travel. I wish to thank those who sent me some money but I did
not receive much so far. Only a few sent me money. I would like others
could send me some so that I can have something to eat instead of just
eating a few toasts a day. I would be so happy if more would send me
money via Paypal during the next few days. May the Lord bless you all.

Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior. Jesus gave me
the message written below. He said, “I bless you all My brother Melvin
and all My brothers and sisters who walk with Me every day. As it is
written above, Saul was converted by Me while he was on his way to
Damascus. He was filled with faith and he was baptized. When some Jews
heard that he was converted and now believed in Me, they wanted to
kill him. So he was helped to climb out  of the wall of Damascus and
went to Jerusalem. At the beginning the Apostles could not believe
that Paul was converted and they were afraid of him. But with the help
of Barnabas, the Apostles accepted him and they helped him. They
brought him to Caesarea and they sent him on his way to Tarsus.
You know that Paul died in Rome as a martyr and he is now a saint.
Many of his letters are in the Bible and we should read them so that
our faith will grow.
I bless you all and I call you all to open your heart to Me and I will
fill them with graces and My love.”
