10-26-15 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

October 26, 2015
St. Paul wrote, “Brothers and sisters, we are not debtors to the flesh, to live according to the flesh.  For if you live according to the flesh, you will die, but if by the spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.” Rom_8:12-17

This, living but dying, we call discipline!  So what are these “deeds of the body?”  Well, another word we’ve heard used is “passion.”  Passions are things like excessive eating, hurting others, laziness, cursing, being preoccupied with looks, substance abuse, watching harmful movies, tv, internet . . .  Jesus wants us to live by the Spirit and not by the flesh.  By the Spirit, we are not preoccupied with things that are passionate to the flesh – instead they are love, charity, compassion, sacrifice, . . .   Be of the Spirit, beloved and not of the flesh.  Then we will truly Live!
