Saturday of the Fifteenth Week in Ordinary Time (YEAR 2013)

Meditation on Today's Scripture:
Jesus brings the justice of God's kingdom tempered with divine love and mercy. He does not bruise the weak or treat them with contempt, but more than shows understanding and compassion. He does not discourage the fainthearted but gives hope, courage, and the strength to persevere through trying situations. No trials, failings, and weaknesses can keep us from the mercy and help which Jesus gives to everybody who asks. His grace is enough for every moment, every situation, and every challenge we face. When you meet trials and difficulties, do we rely on God's help and grace? Loving Jesus, your love and mercy knows no bounds. Give us strength when we are weak, hope when we are discouraged, peace when we are troubled, consolation when we are sad, and understanding when we are perplexed. Make us an instrument of your love and peace to those who are troubled and without hope.
Word of the Day...
1 John 1:7 If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.
Prayer ...
Loving Father, thank you for the gift of Jesus and the cleansing his death brings us. Help us today to live a more dedicated life. Thank you for the assurance that as we seek your will and live your life you are also forgiving us of our sins and cleansing us and making us new. Through the intercession of Jesus, and in his mighty name, we offer these words of thanks. Amen.

Today's Scripture: Matthew 12:14-21
14But the Pharisees went out and took counsel against him, how to destroy him. 15 Jesus, aware of this, withdrew from there. And many followed him, and he healed them all, 16 and ordered them not to make him known. 17 This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah: 18 "Behold, my servant whom I have chosen, my beloved with whom my soul is well pleased. I will put my Spirit upon him, and he shall proclaim justice to the Gentiles. 19 He will not wrangle or cry aloud, nor will any one hear his voice in the streets; 20 he will not break a bruised reed or quench a smoldering wick, till he brings justice to victory; 21 and in his name will the Gentiles hope."
