The Lord knows our heart and so let us who truly love Him with all our hearts not be fearful. But like flowing river after the heart of our God let us water the land with His living water!

Holiness is not something we strive and attain on our very own. Holiness is a reflection of our deep personal relationship with God our Heavenly Father, His Son and the Holy Spirit. When we hear His Word so clearly each and every day of our lives and live it according to His Word and will for us. All for love of Him and of our brethren.

Find me Holy in my Love for You O Lord, as I serve my Brethren in Your Love and Mercy. Amen

Saints Andrew Kim Taegon, Priest, and Paul Chong Hasang, and their Companions, Pray for us….

First reading

Proverbs 21:1-6,10-13

On wickedness and virtue

Like flowing water is the heart of the king in the hand of the Lord,

    who turns it where he pleases.

A man’s conduct may strike him as upright,

    the Lord, however, weighs the heart.

To act virtuously and with justice

    is more pleasing to the Lord than sacrifice.

Haughty eye, proud heart,

    lamp of the wicked, nothing but sin.

The hardworking man is thoughtful, and all is gain;

    too much haste, and all that comes of it is want.

To make a fortune with the help of a lying tongue,

    such the idle fantasy of those who look for death.

The wicked man’s soul is intent on evil,

    he looks on his neighbour with dislike.

When a mocker is punished, the ignorant man grows wiser,

    when a wise man is instructed he acquires more knowledge.

The Just One watches the house of the wicked:

    he hurls the wicked to destruction.

He who shuts his ear to the poor man’s cry

    shall himself plead and not be heard.

Gospel

Luke 8:19-21

‘My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God’

The mother and the brothers of Jesus came looking for him, but they could not get to him because of the crowd. He was told, ‘Your mother and brothers are standing outside and want to see you.’ But he said in answer, ‘My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and put it into practice.’
