02-10-17 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

February 10, 2017
(St. Scholastica, Virgin)
The woman saw that the tree was good for food, pleasing to the eyes, and desirable for gaining wisdom. So she took some of its fruit and ate it; and she also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.  Then the eyes of both of them were opened, Gn_3:1-8

So, why did the serpent tempt the woman?  Why did the man not say anything to prevent the woman from eating the forbidden fruit?  If the woman was able to discern that the tree was good, that it looked pleasing and could have been beneficial, why did she so easily forget about God’s warning about death?  Why did the woman and the man lose their trust in God?  And how sincerely do we believe in God?  Do we truly believe in Heaven and Hell?  Do we truly believe that our own choices, our own rejection of God will lead us to Hell?  Are our eyes open to see both sides of the coin – the deception and the Truth!

Think about it, beloved!
Then place all your trust in God!
Jesus came to save us from the deception,
because it’s still out there!  AS IS HE!
