Matthew 5:43-48 "You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers, what is unusual about that? Do not the pagans do the same? You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect."
Matthew 6:24-25 "No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money. “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? "
John 14:21-24 "Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him." Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, "Lord, how is it that you will manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?" Jesus answered him, "If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. Whoever does not love me does not keep my words. And the word that you hear is not mine but the Father’s who sent me."
John 15:9-17 "As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. These things I command you, so that you will love one another."

Pro Life Corner:"you shall not murder/kill"
“...the temptation grows to have recourse to euthanasia,
that is, to take control of death and bring it before its time, ending one’s own life or the life of others.
In reality, what might seem logical and humane, when looked at more closely is seen to be senseless and inhumane.
Here we are faced with one of the most alarming symptoms of the ‘culture of death’.”
Please pray to end the culture of death.. St. John Paul II
“Do everything for the glory of God.”
“Christ suffered for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, in order to bring you to God.” Is He prompting you to suffer with Him, bringing others to God as a priest, deacon or in the consecrated life? Call the Vocation Office at (718) 827-2454 or email: email@example.com
“Cristo sufrió por nuestros pecados de una vez para siempre, el Justo por los injustos, para llevarnos a Dios.” ¿Crees que el Señor te está invitando a sufrir con El para llevar a otros hacia Dios siendo sacerdote o reli- gioso/a?
