02-20-2023 Matthew Ch 12 v-0508 This is why I say to you




Gospel of Matthew Ch 12 v- Five thru Eight

5 Or have you not read in the law that on the sabbath the priests serving in the temple violate the sabbath and are innocent? 6 I say to you, something greater than the temple is here. 7 If you knew what this meant, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned these innocent men. 8 For the Son of Man is Lord of the sabbath.”


What is Jesus really trying to say? He is more important than the Sabbath rule because He is the Creator of all and therefore the real Maker of Heaven and earth. When we recognize this Omnipotence, we see the Redemption as fact not fiction seeking to share this constantly being consistent in our love, faith and hope of real Charity able to leap to work in an instant. Example; a week ago and young alter boy got sick on the altar during the Consecration while on his knees. The entire Mass saw him throw up some funky yellow puke that glistened across the floor. My wife and I are front and center jumping into action to work the love of Charity no matter the call. Before anyone knew it, my wife had given the boy paper towels leading him to his mother and father as I went to my knees in-between the two other alter servers. I began to wipe up the sickness and remove all evidence that he had gotten sick returning after the initial removal with Lysol spray to give it a good decontamination. Afterwards, my wife and I quietly returned to our seats seeing always why we are willing to live in His surrender able to answer the tough questions of serving the least, the languished or the lonely in a moment’s notice. I would certainly say the young man was languished with an earache we sought to help soothe. Isn’t this the beauty of living Redeemed? Willing and ready to serve. Amen.


Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. Silence for the prayers of others dealing with the war in Ukraine. In the Holy Spirit we pray our brothers in Kairos especially a prayer for our men in blue. We pray for Holy Mother Church. We pray for our Holy Mother in the name of Louie. Daily prayers for our neighbor Thelma. Prayers for a friend and his wife for a baby to be born. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**This is why I say to you**


Sabbath law read not you

Innocent are serving priests ado

This is why I say to you

Greater something here than temple true


Mercy desire I sacrifice not to prove

If only you knew the meaning of this truth

Men innocent condemned not you

Sabbath is Man’s Son Lord over youth
