Join us as we reflect, ponder, and pray together inspired by today's Gospel.
Today's Gospel: Matthew 21:33-43, 45-46
In today's Gospel Jesus tells the parable of the tenants, a clear message for the Pharisees, who were supposed to understand the Law of God that they eagerly imposed on others. They did not recognize the clear signs that Jesus was the Messiah, the Son of God.
Even though Jesus's words seem harsh, they were another attempt to open the eyes of the Pharisees so they could accept Jesus's message.
We should also think how we are welcoming this message of salvation brought to us by Jesus. He already opened Heaven for us, but we need to accept this salvation by obeying the commandments of love: to love God above all things and love our neighbors as ourselves.
We cannot do this by ourselves. We need the constant help of graces from God, our Father, but we need to do our part to try to love more and better every day, asking God to give the graces we need to fulfill this mission.
How can I learn to love God above all things? How can I show Him my love?
Dear Lord, I am so weak, but I want to love You with all my strength, so please help me and widen my heart so I can love You more and better each day.
