Memorial of Saint Anthony of Padua

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets.
I have come not to abolish but to fulfill.
Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away,
not the smallest letter or the smallest part of a letter
will pass from the law,
until all things have taken place.
Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments
and teaches others to do so
will be called least in the Kingdom of heaven.
But whoever obeys and teaches these commandments
will be called greatest in the Kingdom of heaven.”

Matthew 5:17-19


Dear Father you gave us laws to follow in order to keep us on the right path. A path where we know there is life and love. We break these laws and we destroy ourselves. You teach us to love you and love our neighbor and from that we can not go wrong. Dear Father may we come to love your laws and teach them to those who do not know you, so they too may come to you in faith, hope and love. To abide in your love where we keep ourselves from sin. Amen
