Prayer of the Day
Second Week of Lent – Feast of St. Cyril of Jerusalem, Bishop & Doctor of the ChurchMarch 18th, 2014
According to Jesus’ description the Scribes and Pharisees are villainous characters. They seem to be greedy, vain, proud and hypocritical. When religion is used for the advancement of one’s selfish interests, it is a capital offence against God. Just think of the damage done to followers, thousands could be lost. Jesus has exposed scallywags in shepherds clothing. It is the duty of every Christian to do the same in regard to modern Pharisees who, instead of being good shepherds of the Lord’s flock are hired hands who hardly know the sheep, and the great calling that they have tried to overthrow.
