Refletindo o Evangelho
It is not wise to talk about God and your life project and release the people who think they're self-reliant, who despise religion and its sacred symbols. It would be a total waste. Sacred things, among them the word of God, must be offered to those who have an open heart to welcome them with respect. Jesus takes up the maximum called "golden rule". Put it in positive key: do unto others what you wish us to do so. To practice this standard at all times, we must pay attention to the reality of the other, put ourselves in your place, anyway, out of ourselves. The charity is here understood as attitude of love without limit, without expecting retribution. This is part of the "narrow way" which surpasses the selfishness and if it achieves salvation. When you give things very easy for people, with everything ready, that soul cushions, the force that heart shakes, because didn't know make the sacrifice didn't even have to make the effort needed to win, to achieve and get ahead. Extend your heart in love, but be strict, narrow with you in the pursuit of Holiness, love and experience than is correct. Don't live the facilities that the world offers us, because a lot of ease is deception and illusion to our heart. Don't lose the sense of what is fair, true and correct, even if it is little and difficult, since it is there that God is blessing us.
Senhor, quem morará em vossa casa?” † É aquele que caminha sem pecado e pratica a justiça fielmente; que pensa a verdade no seu íntimo e não solta em calúnias sua língua. Que em nada prejudica o seu irmão nem cobre de insultos seu vizinho; que não dá valor algum ao homem ímpio, mas honra os que respeitam o Senhor. Não empresta o seu dinheiro com usura † nem se deixa subornar contra o inocente. Jamais vacilará quem vive assim! (Salmo 13/14).
Lord, who shall dwell in thy House? "† is the one who walks without sin and practice justice faithfully; I think the truth in your intimate and not loose in slander your tongue. That is without prejudice to the your brother or your neighbor insults copper; that does not give any value to the wicked man, but honor those who respect you. Don't lend the your money with usury † even if leave bribe against the innocent. Never falter who lives like that! (Psalm 13/14).
Traçando o sinal da cruz em seu/ua filho/a: Abençoe a você (nome do filho/a), nosso Deus que é † Pai, Filho e Espírito Santo, para que você filho/a viva sempre no amor de Deus e fazendo só o bem a todos. Amém!
By tracing the sign of the cross in you say: Bless me Lord God that is † father, son, and holy spirit, to live always in your love and doing good to all. Amen!
By tracing the sign of the cross on your son/daughter/au: Bless you (name of child), our God who is † father, son, and holy spirit, for you child alive always in love of God and doing good to all. Amen!
