There are also many other things [not written in the Gospels] that Jesus did,
but if these were to be described individually,
I do not think the whole world would contain the books
that would be written.
“Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?”
Simon Peter answered him, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”
Saint Paul said:
“My brothers, I am a Pharisee, the son of Pharisees;
I am on trial for hope in the resurrection of the dead.”
Keep in mind the words of the Lord Jesus who himself said,
‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
Saint Paul wrote:
Yet I consider life of no importance to me,
if only I may finish my course
and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus,
to bear witness to the Gospel of God’s grace.
The qualifications which Matthias had to fill out the Twelve:
Therefore, it is necessary that one of the men
who accompanied us the whole time
the Lord Jesus came and went among us,
beginning from the baptism of John
until the day on which he was taken up from us,
become with us a witness to his resurrection.
May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory,
give you a Spirit of wisdom and revelation
resulting in knowledge of him.
HAVE A BLESSED AND HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
God said to Paul:
Do not be afraid.
Go on speaking, and do not be silent, for I am with you.
