Refletindo o Evangelho
At the conclusion of the sermon on the mount, Jesus encourages us to put into practice all its teachings and makes it clear that the authentic heir of the Kingdom is someone who sticks the will of God. The vote of approval depends on the good works carried out for the glory of God and the good of the next. Other signs, even extraordinary and under invocation of the name of the Lord, if they are not accompanied by the sincerity of heart, but carried out by rogue, reasons will be disapproved "that day", the moment of reckoning. It is not enough to be just praying and repeating the name of God without rolling up my sleeves and go to the practice of Justice. Whoever does the will of the heavenly father, as revealed by Jesus in the Gospels, this will be building your life on the unshakable rock, which is Christ himself.
Dai graças ao Senhor, porque ele é bom, porque eterna é a sua misericórdia! Quem contará os grandes feitos do Senhor? Quem cantará todo o louvor que ele merece? Felizes os que guardam seus preceitos e praticam a justiça em todo tempo! Lembrai-vos, ó Senhor, de mim, lembrai-vos, pelo amor que demonstrais ao vosso povo! Visitai-me com a vossa salvação, para que eu veja o bem-estar do vosso povo, e exulte na alegria dos eleitos, e me glorie com os que são vossa herança. (Salmo 105/106).
Give thanks to the Lord for he is good, because it's your eternal mercy. Who will tell the great deeds of the Lord? Who will sing all the praise he deserves? Happy those who keep your precepts and practice justice in all the time! Memorare, o Lord, from me, remember, for that demonstrais to your people! Visit me with your salvation, for I see the welfare of your people, and rejoice in the joy of the elect, and I boast with those who are your inheritance. (Psalm 105/106).
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!
