1 Kings 18:20-39; Psalm 16; Matthew 5:17-19 🗣🔥🔥🔥
The first reading presents us with the victory of Elijah over the prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel. The Gospel tells us that the Law and the Prophets are still to be obeyed for Christ did not come to abolish them but to complete them. This shows that Jesus was not a heretic or a blasphemer. We are called to be like Elijah and to stand up for God in the midst of adversity and to obey the Law and the teachings in all things. Like Elijah those who stand for God in moment of trials and adversities are usually victorious and victorious people don’t joke with given laws and traditions less they fall. God of Elijah send down fire!
I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there
and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
