I am with you always until the end of this world - Jesus (Matthew 28:20).

Preach the Word in season and out of season reproving, rebuking or advising always with patience and providing instructions (2 Timothy 4:2).

Do not fear, Mary, for God has looked kindly on you (Luke 1:30).

Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly. - G. K. Chesterton

My First Reading Reflections for June 27 Monday of the Thirteenth Week in Ordinary Time: Matthew 8:18-22

My Reflections:
In our first reading (Genesis 18:16-33) for today we see the kindness and mercy of God. Abraham asked Him, “Will you sweep away the innocent with the guilty? The LORD replied, “If I find fifty innocent people in the city of Sodom, I will spare the whole place for their sake.”  The fifty was further reduced to ten innocent people mixed with the countless who were guilty and the Lord God would still save the place for the sake of the ten innocent people.

This first reading is a very good reminder for all of us that we must also be kind and merciful. If the Lord God is kind and merciful why can’t we be?
