On Today’s Gospel

Do we start our day cursing under our breath? Do we scream at our children to pick up after themselves? or to behave? Do we raise our voices at our spouses for things they have done or did not do? Are we impatient with our aged parents or grand parents? Do we see only the faults in our bosses, colleagues, teachers, lecturers, priests? Do we spend the day with a grimace on our faces?

How many of us have been so blessed in our lives that we found ourselves saying,” Our cup runneth over!” Have we forgotten those times, God our Father had provided for and provided for us in abundance? Perhaps some of those times was because of our faithfulness and our obedience to His will for us; But what about the repercussions for our judgemental ways and actions towards others? Do we think that there will not be any? When we sometimes play judge, jury and executioner? Do we judge others because we think ourselves wiser, more righteous than God our Father?

Let us repeat this prayerful mantra till we embrace it into our very being….

“I will be loving, merciful, and compassionate as my heavenly Father is loving, merciful and compassionate!” Through Christ our Lord, Amen. 

GOSPEL Luke 6:36–38

Jesus said to his disciples: “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

“Stop judging and you will not be judged. Stop condemning and you will not be condemned. Forgive and you will be forgiven. Give and gifts will be given to you; a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap. For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you.”
