For 15 March 2023, Wednesday of the third week of Lent, based on Matthew 5:17-19
Jesus said to his disciples, ‘Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets; I have come not to abolish but to fulfil. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not one letter, not one stroke of a letter, will pass from the law until all is accomplished. Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, will be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.’

Thanks once again for unfolding the scripture passages today by your own experience as a Chaplain in a hospital …..to follow Jesus’s example of Mercy, Justice and Compassion. Yes, today more than ever we need good laws and appropriate procedures to be carried out everywhere so as not to harm others.
May the Spirit continue to guide you in your preaching the “Good News”.
Love and prayer,
