On Today’s Gospel

Posted: July 24, 2018 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections

I know no other merciful and loving God. One who truly loves and cares for His people. One who hopes and prays for their conversion, their turning away from sin to return to Him. So that they might have life to the full and eternally with Him. A loving Father that sent His son to bridge the great divide, so that we can become sons and daughters;brothers and sisters to one another.

All that He asks of us is to do His Will. His will that only brings forth life, love, peace and joy. Amen

First reading

Micah 7:14-15,18-20
Have pity on us one more time

With shepherd’s crook, O Lord, lead your people to pasture,the flock that is your heritage,living confined in a forest
with meadow land all around.
Let them pasture in Bashan and Gilead as in the days of old.
As in the days when you came out of Egypt grant us to see wonders.

What god can compare with you: taking fault away,
pardoning crime, not cherishing anger for ever
but delighting in showing mercy?
Once more have pity on us, tread down our faults,
to the bottom of the sea
throw all our sins.
Grant Jacob your faithfulness, and Abraham your mercy, as you swore to our fathers from the days of long ago.

Gospel

Matthew 12:46-50
My mother and my brothers are anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven

Jesus was speaking to the crowds when his mother and his brothers appeared; they were standing outside and were anxious to have a word with him. But to the man who told him this Jesus replied, ‘Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?’ And stretching out his hand towards his disciples he said, ‘Here are my mother and my brothers. Anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven, he is my brother and sister and mother.
