03-23-2023 Matthew Ch 14 v-3436 Those who touched cloak’s tassel
Gospel of Matthew Ch 14 v- 34 thru 36
34 After making the crossing, they came to land at Gennesaret. 35 When the men of that place recognized him, they sent word to all the surrounding country. People brought to him all those who were sick 36 and begged him that they might touch only the tassel on his cloak, and as many as touched it were healed.
I was sitting in the Stations of the Cross while at Fatima when I noticed the Priest’s tassels on his vesture he wore. I thought, “If only I could touch the tassels of his garment I’d be healed of all pride able to accept any situation in charity.” The kind of charity that people call being taken advantage of while you see it as Jesus with absolute forgiveness in your heart willing to help again because it is the right thing to do. Or the kind of charity that receives nothing in return but the satisfaction that someone else had a chance to repent and find absolution ready and willing to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. This is the reason why a life of lies stopped; to be focused on God First. Sure, your life can be called whatever you want it to be but fallacy will never make it right as you live the wrong you created. There comes a time when you realize there is no need to embellish anything around you for the benefit you think you are receiving labels you a liar and trust is lost in all circumstances. There is no reason to say or do things that make you always look over your shoulder for that pounce of Truth to be exacted on you. God will acquit you in absolute forgiveness and allow you to see Truth as the model for all things you must turn to Him and ask for forgiveness when you’ve lost the trust of others who want to help as Jesus did; absolute forgiveness. Go sin no more. 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 Boston aka Keith. 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. Daily prayers for our neighbor Thelma. Prayers for a friend and his wife for a baby to be born. Novena Day seven Cheryl and Joe. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**Those who touched cloak’s tassel**
Gennesaret land Jesus crossing made
Jesus recognized by men when He landed
Country surrounding word sent sick brought He would save
Those who touched cloak’s tassel His healing Jesus commanded
