MT 5:43-48

As Catholics and followers of God, we have made a sacred covenant with him to keep his word holy. We are to follow his commandments, study what he has given to us thoroughly and then live it out fully. It is part of our job to bring our fellow brothers and sisters to him so that we all one day, may celebrate eternal life with him in heaven as promised to us. Dear God, please give us all the will power to follow through whole-heartedly on your commandments even if it means having to associate with people our egos tell us we are better than. Help us to love doing what you ask and to minimize our pride so that each day we grow closer to an eternity with you.
