Jesus Warns, Fear God And Not Man


Extract

Jesus said to his disciples, “I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have nothing more they can do. But I will warn you whom you should fear: fear the one who, after the killing, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him”. (Luke 12:4-5)

ThoughtsThought

We are often so focused on this material world that life after death seems irrelevant. Yet, at any moment of God’s choosing, it will arrive!

ReflectionsReflection

Almighty Father, grant me a healthy fear of You. Guide me in my preparations for death so that, when my time comes, I can welcome it. This I ask through your Risen Son, Jesus Christ.

Prayer: Mary

O Most Pure Heart of Mary,
you are full of goodness.

Show us your love.
Let the flame of your heart, O Mary,
descend on all people.

Mary, we love you.
Impress on our hearts, true love,
so that we may long for you.

O Mary, gentle and humble of heart,
remember us in our greatest needs. Amen.
