I PRAISE YOU FOR I AM WONDERFULLY MADE.

O Lord, you have probed me and you know me; you know when I sit and when I stand; you understand my thoughts from afar.  My journeys and my rest you scrutinize, with all my ways you are familiar.  

Truly you have formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mothers womb.  I give you thanks that I am fearfully, wonderfully made; wonderful are your works.  

My soul also you knew full well; nor was my frame unknown to you when I was made in secret, when I was fashioned in the depths of the earth.

Psalms 139: 1-3, 13-14, 14-15

Reflections:

1.  Are we still proud and thankful that we are created in the image and likeness of God?

2.  Every time we look at the mirror do we still smile and say “Thank you Lord for creating this guy/woman!”

3.  Do we treat others as God’s wonderful creation as well?

Saint of the Day:

St. John the Baptist, pray for us.

He was very happy creating you,

Brother Mo

CAN YOU THROW THAT STONE?

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, March 23, 2015:

wisdom 032315

The scribes and the Pharisees brought to Jesus a woman who had been caught in adultery and made her stand in the middle.

They said to Him, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the very act of committing adultery.  Now in the law, Moses commanded us to stone such women.  So what do you say?”  They said this to test Him, so that they could have some charge to bring against Him.

Jesus bent down and began to write on the ground with His finger.  But when they continued asking Him, He straightened up and said to them, “Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” 

Again He bent down and wrote on the ground.  And in response, they went away one by one, beginning with the elders.  So He was left alone with the woman before Him.

Then Jesus straightened up and said to her, “Woman, where are they?  Has no one condemned you?”  She replied, “No one, sir.”

Then Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you.  Go (and) from now on do not sin any more.”

– From the Gospel of John 8: 1-11

Reflections:

*If we were in that scene, shall we throw a stone at the woman?

*Why is it so easy for us to judge and condemn others?

*Why is it so easy to look at the fault of others instead of our own faults?

St. Toribio Alfonso de Mogrovejo, pray for us.

Leave that stone,

Brother Mo
