KEEP THE STATUTES AND COMMANDMENTS OF GOD THAT IT MAY GO WELL WITH YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN AFTER YOU (Deut 4:40)

⏰Friday of the Eighteenth Week of Ordinary Time (11 August 2017 – Memorial of St. Clare) ????Deut 4:32-40; Ps 77:12-13, 14-15, 16 and 21 (R.v.12a); Matt 16:24-28 The Book of Deuteronomy tries to make one point very clearly, the fact that God is always on our side because he loves us, and he is able to do all things for us if we remain faithful to him.

“LET IT BE DONE FOR YOU AS YOU DESIRE” (Matt 15:28)

⏰Wednesday of the Eighteenth Week of Ordinary Time (09 August 2017) ????Num 13:1-2, 25 – 14:1, 26-29, 34-35; Ps 106:6-7ab, 13-14, 21-22, 23 (R.v.4a); Matt 15:21-28 ????”LET IT BE DONE FOR YOU AS YOU DESIRE” (Matt 15:28) Did you say ‘AMEN’ to that?

Why would that happen? ENVY AND JEALOUSY! They want to rubbish his integrity so that they can uphold themselves. Envy and jealousy are dangerous diseases that smells badly. It destroys...
