Tuesday of the Twelfth Week in Ordinary Time

Jesus said to his disciples:

Do not give what is holy to dogs, or throw your pearls before swine,
lest they trample them underfoot, and turn and tear you to pieces.

Do to others whatever you would have them do to you.
This is the Law and the Prophets.

Enter through the narrow gate;
for the gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction,
and those who enter through it are many.
How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life. And those who find it are few.

— Matthew 7:6, 12-14

The peace of the Lord be with you. Today Jesus instructs us about things that lead to life.

He tells us to treasure and protect what is sacred.

He tells us to treat others well.

He tells us to be careful not to get caught up in things that can lead to our destruction.

God wants us to have an abundant and fruitful life that allows to experience heaven now and in the hereafter. In the name of the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
