Gospel: Matt 5: 38-48-“You are finding out that you cannot succeed by your own personal efforts. Our Lord is teaching you a big truth: You are weak and needy and have no power by your own strength to overcome. Throw yourselves into the arms of your heavenly Father. Remember you are NOT asked by Jesus to take the burden alone.” St. K.D.
