06-11-2023 Matthew Ch 23 v-2728 Filth is the ugly you do
Gospel of Matthew Ch 23 v- 27 thru 28
27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites. You are like whitewashed tombs, which appear beautiful on the outside, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and every kind of filth. 28 Even so, on the outside you appear righteous, but inside you are filled with hypocrisy and evildoing.
We can all seem a little whitewashed outside when we seek the world and all its flash and flair of excess. We want to appear clean and righteous but carry around a filth in our souls that can only cleaned by the act of Redemption Jesus hung on a Cross for. It’s difficult not being a hypocrite when the world beckons you in every aspect your life has to offer seeking more of you in costume rather the real you in sharing Charity’s Truth. Only in the Word of God can we find the desires of Salvation wanting to live forever must come with a surrender to the love, faith and hope of His mercy and grace. We must seek those in need to share the Gospel where everything is wiped clean and you can become everything God is asking you to be in goodwill. Feed the hungry is more than a couple of bucks to a homeless man. Feeding the hungry is making the meal and serving it with a smile of Redemption. You must live the Seven Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy each and every day as the joy of living for Life Eternal to forgive as to be forgiven finding an absolute peace to know how to share random acts of kindness. Amen.
The SEVEN CORPORAL WORKS OF MERCY are Feeding the Hungry, Giving Drink to the Thirsty, Clothing the Naked, Sheltering the Homeless, Visiting the Imprisoned, Comforting the Sick and Burying the Dead. The SEVEN SPIRITUAL WORKS OF MERCY are Teaching the Ignorant, Praying for the Living and the Dead, Correcting Sinners, Counseling Those in Doubt, Consoling the Sorrowful, Bearing Wrongs Patiently and Forgiving Wrongs Willingly.
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 the intersession of our Holy Mother for the sister of Jackie her name is Loreen. 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.

**Filth is the ugly you do**
Woe hypocrites you Pharisees and scribes
Tombs whitewashed like are you
Outside beautiful men dead full inside
Filth is the ugly you do
Righteous appear outside
Hypocrisy filled inside
Evildoing smearing confide
Death’s eternal ride
