Prayer of the Day

Fifteenth Week of Ordinary Time

July 18th, 2014
""Look your disciples are doing something that is forbidden on the Sabbath.’’" Matthew 12 : 2

Of course Jesus was aware of what his disciples were doing but the Pharisees take it upon themselves to call Jesus’  attention to the situation. Jesus is quick to defend his disciples and shows his knowledge of the Scriptures.  He reminds them that they have not understood the meaning of the Scriptures.

Prayer Jesus, help us to see beyond traditions and rituals to the real meaning of the words of scripture. Reveal yourself and your message to us as we meditate on the scriptures. Amen
