Gospel: Mt 5: 17- 19
But whoever obeys and teaches these commandments will be called greatest in the kingdom of heaven (Mt 5:19)
Total obedience is what Jesus is telling us today. In our gospel, Jesus told his disciples that he did not want to abolish the law of the prophets instead he wants to fulfill it. Through our obedience, Jesus does not disregard our free will but instead he respects it and leads it to make us reach our greatest potential. Let us pray for our own struggles that we may be able to overcome it by obeying and teaching the commandments to others.
Mother Mary, we pray for our total obedience to the Father.
