We have to pray for peace between Russia and the Ukraine. There is no peace between these two nations today and if it continues as it is, we could have a major war. Let us pray that Russia comes to its senses and works for peace instead of looking for ways for war and to take over that nation. The Ukraine was under the Russian Communists for many years but when the Communists were kicked out the Ukraine with many other countries were liberated and found their freedom. Let us pray that they will all remain free and independent.
PS It was cold on Monday and it was cloudy at times. The sun did come out at certain times during the day. However, it will soon get warmer and by Saturday it should be 20 degrees Celsius in Prince Edward Island. I am praying for you all.
The Parable of the Two Sons
21, 28 – 32
Jesus said, “What is your opinion? A man had two sons. He came to the first and said, ‘Son, go out and work in the vineyard today.’ He said in reply, ‘I will not,’ but afterwards he changed his mind and went. The man came to the other son and gave the same order. He said in reply, “Yes, sir,’ but did not go. Which of the two did his father’s will?” They answered, “The first.” Jesus said to them, “Amen, I say to you, tax collectors and prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God before you. When John came to you in the way of righteousness, you did not believe him; but tax collectors and prostitutes did. Yet even when you saw that, you did not later change your minds and believe him.”
Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
“I know that you My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters have accepted St. John Baptist as a great prophet and a holy man. He worked very well to help Me start My public life. He was the one who baptized Me and who introduced Me to the people as the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. He also said that I was the Son of God. He became a martyr and he is a saint. However many Jews did not accept him.
I told the Jews the parable of the two sons who were sent by their father to work in the vineyard. The first say that he would not go but he changed his mind and went to work. the second son said he would go but he never went to work. I asked the people to tell Me which one had done the will of his father. They all said the first one. Now here is the explanation of this parable. The father of the parable is God the Father. The two sons are the people of the world. The Jewish people believe in God but most of them refused to believe in Me and to listen to St. John the Baptist. Many of the Gentiles believed in Me and they accepted the words of St. John the Baptist. So it was those whom the Jews called sinners that believe in Me and followed Me and entered into My Kingdom. That is why I said to them that the tax collectors and the prostitutes were the first to enter the Kingdom of God. Even when the Jews saw that the sinners believed in large numbers, they did not change their minds. Even today most of the Jewish people have not accepted Me as the Messiah and the Son of God.
You, My friends, have accepted Me and your hearts are always ready to receive Me. You listen to My words and you do every day what I asked of you. It is a joy for Me to see so many of you on the way to eternal glory. Continue your march every day by following the commandments, praying and going to church regularly and receiving Me in Holy Communion. Repent of your sins and you will be blessed by Me. I love you all.”
