Manhood Monday: Ministering to a Great Multitude

Your weekly dose of “Living the Goodness of a Catholic Man”.

From Today’s Readings:

Alleluia MT 4:23

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
Jesus proclaimed the Gospel of the Kingdom
and cured every disease among the people.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

The theme from the readings for today, in 1 John 4:1 it says, “Beloved, do not trust every spirit but test the spirits to see whether they belong to God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”

Those who fail to acknowledge Jesus Christ in the flesh are false prophets and belong to the antichrist. Even though these false prophets are well received in the world, the Christian who belongs to God has a greater power in the truth.

In other words, only Jesus was given by God the power to heal, and the more time we spend to know God, the more we can tell when someone is not of God.  The more we know God, the more God can heal us and those Jesus sends into our lives  … through our example and through prayer.

God bless your day.

A Pigeon runs over the yellow safety line on a train platform in Chicago, Illinois.

In life, there are times when we need to draw the line if nothing else than for our own health and safety.

Whether it’s the noise of the news media, or the internet in general, or politics, it’s important to know where we stand or we’ll fall for anything.

We build strong character and peace of mind when we stay on our side of the line that we draw for ourselves.

Thanks for Reading.

Make it a great week. See you back here again next Monday.
