03-12-19 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

March 12, 2019
Jesus said to his disciples: “In praying, do not babble like the pagans, who think that they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them. Your Father knows what you need before you ask him. . . .  “If you forgive men their transgressions, your heavenly Father will forgive you. But if you do not forgive men, neither will your Father forgive your transgressions.”  Mt_6:7-15

Jesus made quite a point of the importance of how we treat other people.  And today shows the extreme.  We say that our God loves us no matter what.  But that doesn’t give us the excuse to do whatever we want – especially when it comes to our dealings with others.  “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” has a whole clearer meaning when we place God in the picture.  We will be forgiven as we forgive!  When we feed the poor we are feeding Jesus.  And when we listen to Jesus, we are listening to God, the Father.  “He sees you when you’re sleeping.  He knows when you’re awake.  He knows if you’ve been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake.  O . . .”
