Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, June 18, 2015:

wisdom 061815

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.

This is how you are to pray:  ‘OUR FATHER WHO ART IN HEAVEN, HALLOWED BY YOUR NAME, THY KINGDOM COME, THY WILL BE DONE, ON EARTH AS IN HEAVEN.  GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD; AND FORGIVE US OUR TRESPASSES, AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO TRESPASS AGAINST US; AND LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION, BUT DELIVER US FROM EVIL.’

‘If you forgive others their transgressions, your heavenly Father will forgive you.  BUT IF YOU DO NOT FORGIVE OTHERS, NEITHER WILL YOUR FATHER FORGIVE YOUR TRANSGRESSIONS.”

– From the Gospel of Matthew 6: 7-15

Reflections:

*How do we pray?

*Do we love long prayers or short prayers?

*Do we still pray this very simple but profound prayer Jesus taught us?

*Have we really forgiven those who tresspassed against us?

Saint of the Day:

St. Gregory Barbarigo, pray for us.

Refrain from babbling,

WHO ANGERS YOU?

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, June 11, 2015:

wisdom 061115

Jesus said to His disciples:  “I TELL YOU, UNLESS YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS SURPASSES THAT OF THE SCRIBES AND PHARISEES, YOU WILL NOT ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.

“You have heard that it was said to your ancestors, You shall not kill; and whoever kills will be liable to judgment.  But I say to you, WHOEVER IS ANGRY WITH HIS BROTHER WILL BE LIABLE TO JUDGMENT, and whoever says to his brother, ‘Raqa’, will be answerable to the Sanhedrin, and whoever says, ‘You fool’, will be liable to fiery Gehenna.

THEREFORE, IF YOU BRING YOUR GIFT TO THE ALTAR, AND THERE RECALL THAT YOU BROTHER HAS ANYTHING AGAINST YOU, LEAVE YOUR GIFT THERE AT THE ALTAR, GO FIRST AND BE RECONCILED WITH YOUR BROTHER, AND THEN COME AND OFFER YOUR GIFT.”

-From the Gospel of Matthew 5:20-26

+++

Reflections:

*Who makes us angry?

*What did he/she do that made us angry?

*Are we willing to be reconciled with him/her before we talk to God?

PLEASE REMEMBER ME

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, June 04, 2015:

wisdom 060415

 

TO YOU, O LORD, I LIFT MY SOUL.

In you I trust; let me not be put to shame, let not my enemies exult over me.

No one who waits for you shall be put to shame; THOSE SHALL BE PUT TO SHAME WHO HEEDLESSLY BREAK FAITH.  

Your ways, O Lord, make known to me; teach me your paths, Guide me in truth and teach me, for you are God my savior.

Remember that our compassion, O Lord, and your kindness are from of old.

IN YOUR KINDNESS REMEMBER ME, BECAUSE OF YOUR GOODNESS, O LORD.

Good and upright is the Lord; thus He shows sinners the way.

HE GUIDES THE HUMBLE TO JUSTICE, HE TEACHES THE HUMBLE HIS WAY.

– From Psalms 25: 2-3, 4-5, 6-7, 8-9

+++

Reflections:

*Do we still put our trust in the Lord?

*Do we still allow Him to guide our dreams, decisions and actions?

*Do we still pray that He remember us at the end of our earthly lives?

THE WAY BACK

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, May 25, 2015:

wisdom 052515

To the penitent GOD PROVIDES A WAY BACK, He encourages those who are losing hope and has chosen for them the lot of truth.  RETURN TO HIM AND GIVE UP SIN, PRAY TO THE LORD AND MAKE YOUR OFFENSES FEW.

Turn again to the Most High and away from your sin, hate intensely what He loathes, and know the justice and judgments of God, stand firm in the way set before you, in prayer to the the Most High God.

Who in the nether world can glorify the Most High in place of the living who offer their praise? Dwell no longer in the error of the ungodly, but offer your praise before death.  No more can the dead give praise than those who have never lived; you who are alive and well shall praise and glorify God in His mercies.  

HOW GREAT THE MERCY OF THE LORD, HIS FORGIVENESS OF THOSE WHO RETURN TO HIM!

-From Sirach 17:20-24

+++

Reflections:

*Are we in the brink of losing hope?  Why not go back to Him.

*Are we losing our lives? Why not call Him back.

*Do we still praise and glorify God?  Give them back to Him.

DO NOT BE AFRAID

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, March 19, 2015:

wisdom 031915

Now this is the birth of Jesus Christ came about.

When His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, but before they lived together, she was found with child through the Holy Spirit.

Joseph her husband, since he was righteous man, yet unwilling to expose her to shame, decided to divorce her quietly.

Such was his intention when, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home. For it is through the Holy Spirit that this Child has been conceived in her.  She will bear a son and you are to name Him Jesus, because He will save His people from their sins.”

When Joseph awoke, he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took his wife into his home.

– From the Gospel of Matthew 1: 16, 18-21, 24

Reflections:

*Why are we always afraid to take responsibility?

*Why are we always afraid to serve God?

*Why are we always afraid to forgive and show our love?

ST JOSEPH, pray for us.

Trust Him,
