WORD OF GOD

Sirach 26:1-4

Happy the husband of a good wife, 
the number of his days will be doubled. 
A woman of character is her husband’s joy, 
he will live in peace all the years of his life.
A good wife is the best of gifts, 
reserved for those who fear the Lord; 
rich or poor, he will have a serene heart 
and a happy face.



---- Mine,

Remember these words of wisdom and you will have a happy, serene home where faith in Me and love for Me reigns.

WORD OF GOD

Matthew 7:14

How narrow is the gate that leads to life
and how rough the road; 
few there are who find it.

---- Mine,

If you are to truly answer the call to discipleship you will find out how true My word to you today is. The world hated Me and the world hates those who follow Me because selfish desires and self-indulgence are the clarion call of the world. It preaches a life of ease and comfort, of instant gratification, of taking what you want regardless of the consequences, of using and abusing oneself as well as others. It preaches a feel-good gospel. Whereas the Way of the Cross is the way of self-denial, of love of God and love of neighbor regardless of the cost to oneself, of seeking the good of the other before self, of discipline and self-control. Only a few who have discovered the true meaning of love are prepared to seek, find, and embrace the narrow way.
