Monday of the Second Week in Ordinary Time
The disciples of John and of the Pharisees were accustomed to fast. People came to Jesus and objected, “Why do the disciples of John and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not fast?”
Jesus answered them, “Can the wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them? As long as they have the bridegroom with them they cannot fast.
But the days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast on that day.
No one sews a piece of unshrunken cloth on an old cloak. If he does, its fullness pulls away, the new from the old, and the tear gets worse.
Likewise, no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the skins are ruined. Rather, new wine is poured into fresh wineskins.”
“The Word Of The Lord”
May the Lord Jesus Christ showers His choicest Blessings and Miracles upon you and your beautiful family.
I believe that God the Son became Man
without ceasing to be God.
He is Jesus Christ, my lord and my Saviour,
the Redeemer of the human race.
He died on the Cross for my salvation
and eternal happiness.
O my God, give me a strong faith.
Help me to believe with lively faith.
O my God, all-good and all-merciful,
I sincerely hope to be saved.
Help me to do all that is necessary
to gain eternal salvation.
I have committed many sins in my life,
but now I turn away from them.
I am sorry, truly sorry for all of them,
because I have offended You, my God,
Who are all-good, all-perfect,
all-holy and all-merciful.
I love you, O my God, with all my heart.
Please forgive me for having offended You.
I promise that, with Your help,
I will never offend You again.
My God, have mercy on me.
