Saturday, February 1, 2014:
Jesus said: “My people, in the first reading the prophet Nathan told King David of a story how a rich man used a poor man’s only lamb to feed his visitor. This emphasized how King David had Uriah killed, so he could take his wife, who was already with child. The prophet told David of his sin and how his child would die. David was forgiven, as he was sorry for offending Me. Instead of stealing from the poor, more well-to-to people should be helping them with charity. Many of My people have plenty of possessions, so you could be helping the poor in buying food for them, or donating to your local food shelves. Now that you have your January tax bills paid, you have no excuse, and you can afford to share donations with the poor. You could also pray for the poor and help them in evangelizing souls. You need good deeds to help balance off your sins, so look for opportunities to help your family and your neighbors. By showing love for Me in helping others, you will store up treasure in heaven for your judgment.”
