03-18-20 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

March 18, 2020
(St. Cyril of Jerusalem, Bishop and Doctor of the Church)
Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do so will be called least in the Kingdom of heaven. But whoever obeys and teaches these commandments will be called greatest in the Kingdom of heaven.”  Mt_5:17-19

Moses, the Prophets of antiquity, Jesus and our Church have taught us the Commandments of God’s will.  We know from the minutest detail to the overarching themes of love and life what God asks of us.  It’s all there, in the Bible, in the Catechism, in the Encyclicals and even in our own hearts and consciences.  We know, from the very moment we stray from those laws that we’ve erred.  And the moment after that moment, our very next thought and word and deed should be repentance and reconciliation.  “Forgive me Lord!”  THIS is how we stay right with God!  When we can devote, even just a portion of our time rooted in those Words, the Wisdom of the Lord, just think how much more full, more meaningful, more beneficial our lives can be.  And it’s there that we gain the Kingdom of heaven, both now and forever!  Thanks be to God. Thanks be to Jesus.  And thanks be to His Spirit living within us!
