Today's Gospel + image + catechesis

Tuesday of the Twelfth Week in Ordinary Time

Gospel text (Mt 7,6.12-14): Jesus said to his disciples, «Do not give what is holy to the dogs». Jesus said to his disciples, «Do not give what is holy to the dogs, or throw your pearls to the pigs: they might trample on them and even turn on you and tear you to pieces. So, do to others whatever you would that others do to you: there you have the Law and the Prophets. Enter through the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many go that way. How narrow is the gate that leads to life and how rough the road; few there are who find it».

Today Jesus Christ asks us to appraise well both our faith and the holy things. Jesus has brought us God to our Earth. God is with us! There He is: in the Church, in the Eucharist and in the other sacraments, in the Bible (His written Word), amongst His followers... But sometimes there is so much disdain towards God... Some would prefer a "God-clown": if you can make a miracle ... if you turn stones into bread ... if you come down from the cross ... then I will believe in you.

--How easy is to make fun of the humble God!" But when man despises God, man also despises man. Just take a look at History!
