Memorial-Saint Ignatius of Antioch, bishop and martyr

Psalm 25:14-15: The Lord confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them. My eyes are ever on the Lord, for only he will release my feet from the snare.
Prayer ...
Heavenly Father, you have done so much to save us. You who are so holy and virtuous, have reached down to take our hand when we were sinners and in rebellion to your love. Teach us your ways. Correct the wrongs in our life. Guide us into the ways of your truth. We want to not only be saved from our sin, but from days of ineffectiveness and frustration. Make us a instrument that can be used to honor you. In Infant Jesus' name we pray. Amen.

Meditation on Today's Gospel:
Jesus used the example of tithing to show how far they had ignored the mark. God had commanded a tithe of the first fruits of one's work as an expression of blessing and honor for his providential care for his people. They, however, went to extreme lengths to tithe on unimportant things, such as small plants with great mathematical correctness. They were very attentive to minute matters of little significance, but they neglected to care for the needy and the weak. Jesus cautioned them because their hearts were not right. They were filled with pride and dislike for others. They put needless burdens on others while neglect to show charity, mainly to the weak and the poor. They cautiously went through the correct motions of conventional religion while forgetting the authenticity. Loving Infant Jesus, inflame our heart with your love that we may always pursue what matters most – love of you, our God, and love of our fellow neighbor whom you have made in your own image and similarity. Free our heart from selfish evil desires that we may only have room for kindness, mercy, and goodness near every person we know and meet.
