YOU WILL NEVER DIE

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today

wisdom 072915

Many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary to comfort them about their brother (Lazarus, who had died).  When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went to meet him; but Mary sat at home.  Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.  But even now I know that whatever you ask of God, God will give you.”

Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise.”  Martha said to Him, “I know he will rise, in the resurrection on the last day.”  Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live, and anyone who lives and believes in me will never die.  Do you believe this?”  She said to Him, “Yes, Lord.  I have come to believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, the one who is coming into the world.”

From the Gospel of John 11: 19-27

LEAVE HER ALONE

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, March 30, 2015 (Holy Monday)

wisdom 033015

Six days before Passover Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, whom Jesus had raised from the dead.

They gave a dinner for Him there, and Martha served, while Lazarus was one of those reclining at table with Him.

Mary took a liter of costly perfumed oil made from genuine aromatic nard and anointed the feet of Jesus and dried them with her hair; the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil.

Then Judas the Iscariot, one of His disciples, and the one who would betray Him, said, “Why was this oil not sold for 300 days’ wages and give to the poor?”  He said this not because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief and held the money bag and used to steal the contributions.

So Jesus said, “Leave her alone.  Let her keep this for the day of my burial.  You always have the poor with you, but you do not always have me.”

–  From the Gospel of John 12:1-11

Reflections:

*What are we ready to do for Jesus?

*What are we willing to do to make Jesus feel very special in our daily lives?

*Do we use “the poor” to advance our own personal agenda?

St. Peter Regulatus, pray for us.

Make Him very special,

Brother Mo
