Today's Gospel

Mt 5:17-19

Jesus said to his disciples:

“Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets.

I have come not to abolish but to fulfill.

Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away,

not the smallest letter or the smallest part of a letter

will pass from the law,

until all things have taken place.

Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments

and teaches others to do so

will be called least in the Kingdom of heaven.

But whoever obeys and teaches these commandments

will be called greatest in the Kingdom of heaven.”

Today's Reflection

Today's reflection is from Emily Kennedy, current senior at

Powers Catholic High School and alumnus of St. Pius X.

Jesus is in our lives not to abolish, but he’s in our lives to fulfill them. When we make mistakes Jesus looks at it and sees if other have made the same. If someone else has not made the same mistake then he places you below others. All he wants from us is to follow his 10 commandments so we can live happily in Heaven. Don’t break any of the commandments or you will be seen least likely to get into Heaven. Jesus will always forgive you when you go to confession. Having gone to confession you will be called greatest of Heaven and live with him in Heaven.
