08-28-16 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

August 28, 2016
(22nd Sunday Ordinary Time, C)
Jesus said in a parable, “When you hold a lunch or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or your wealthy neighbors, in case they may invite you back and you have repayment.  Rather, when you hold a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind; blessed indeed will you be because of their inability to repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”  Lk_14:1,7-14

Give without banking on the reward!
And the reward will be banking on YOU!

My child, conduct your affairs with humility, and you will be loved more than a giver of gifts.  Humble yourself the more, the greater you are, and you will find favor with God.  Sir_3:17-18,20,28-29

Give without counting the cost (or the embarrassment.)
And the Glory of the “favor” of the only one it matters to, God, will be yours!

Italian firemen save life of child buried
underneath earthquake rubble.
