Are we mournful Catholics? Do we not instead rejoice at every Sunday eucharistic celebration? Giving our God thanks and praise!? Our Lord and saviour conquered death so that we may have new life in a Him. Are we not to celebrate our salvation? Our redemption?

We need to be transformed at every celebration by the Word and the reception of Jesus into our very being. We cannot hold on to our old sinful lives or our inertia to grow in our faith. God speaks to us everyday, in every Eucharistic celebration. Are we listening? Are we growing? Are we transformed?

GOSPEL
Matthew 9:14–17

The disciples of John approached Jesus and said, “Why do we and the Pharisees fast much, but your disciples do not fast?” Jesus answered them, “Can the wedding guests mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast. No one patches an old cloak with a piece of unshrunken cloth, for its fullness pulls away from the cloak and the tear gets worse. People do not put new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise the skins burst, the wine spills out, and the skins are ruined. Rather, they pour new wine into fresh wineskins, and both are preserved.”

    If God says He is king what is He not king of that He should say,” My kingdom is not of this world?”

    We thank You Lord God for this grace in which we stand, grace to keep Thy Ten Commandments. O Holy Trinity one God have mercy on us and on all the Churches and on the whole wide world.
