Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 12,1-7
At that time: So many people were crowding together that they were trampling one another underfoot. He began to speak, first to his disciples, “Beware of the leaven–that is, the hypocrisy–of the Pharisees.
There is nothing concealed that will not be revealed, nor secret that will not be known.
Therefore whatever you have said in the darkness will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered behind closed doors will be proclaimed on the housetops.
I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body but after that can do no more.
I shall show you whom to fear. Be afraid of the one who after killing has the power to cast into Gehenna; yes, I tell you, be afraid of that one.
Are not five sparrows sold for two small coins? Yet not one of them has escaped the notice of God.
Even the hairs of your head have all been counted. Do not be afraid. You are worth more than many sparrows.”
Do not fear
1) Be careful: Sadly, I must warn you that you have to be careful of everyone, including people that help in the church. Envy and hunger for power often overcome us. You have to be careful of hypocrisy and also be aware so you do not to fall into hypocrisy. You have to be careful with those that use God to hurt others. Please do not fall into the hypocritical attitude of the Pharisees.
2) Nothing is hidden: It is necessary to be transparent in life. God asks for your transparency in order to be in union with Him. We are not a secret legion nor a people that live in secret. We speak the truth, live by the truth, and we are free. If you want to be free, learn to live in truth.
3) You have value: Humiliation often leads us to feelings of sadness and worthlessness. We are God’s children and you are just as valuable as your brother or sister. You are worth it and so are they, but we must remember that no one is superior to the other…we are all God’s beloved children. That’s why we must not humiliate anyone. It is our job to learn to appreciate others and to follow. Please pray a rosary today for someone you have humiliated or that has humiliated you… Let’s go! Pray a rosary and add forgiveness to your heart !
God bless you in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Remember, heaven is our goal !
