DEUTERONOMY 4:1, 5-9; PSALM 148; MATTHEW 5:17-19
Moses said to the people: Keep these laws and observe them that you may have life and may enter and take possession of the land that the Lord the God of your fathers is giving you. In the gospel, Jesus tells us that he came to complete the laws given to us by Moses and that they are to be obeyed. Beloved, if we must possess eternal life we must observe and keep these laws and teach others to do the same.
LET US PRAY
Grant, we pray, O Lord, that, schooled through Lenten observance and nourished by your word, through holy restraint we may be devoted to you with all our heart and be ever united in prayer. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
