“So treat others as you would like them to treat you; that is the Law and the Prophets.”

2 R.19, 9b-11 14-21.31-35a.36 Ps.47 Mt.7,6.12-14

Tuesday of 12th year, even numbered year

“Do not give dogs what is holy; and do not throw your pearls in front of pigs, or they may trample them and then turn on you and tear you to pieces.”

“Don’t give to dogs what is sacred!”

What is sacred is the human person, every human person is a sacred history.

The precious pearls are the marvellous gifts God has placed within us. Each one of us is filled with riches. This is how we can understand Jesus’ recommendations.

The necklace of precious pearls is constituted by honouring the gifts that we allow to fructify, by offering them up to God for Him to make them grow.

This is how we start the path of our life, by respecting ourselves, by considering God’s work in us. We want to let the Beauty of God which makes us grow in us. It is this precious perfume that we need to know how to keep in a tightly sealed bottle, so that it doesn’t escape in vain. One day will come when the perfume can be let out, but not any old how and not for anyone at all.

We are God’s mirror which shines forth God’s Justice.

“What is sacred , do not give to dogs, do not throw your pearls in front of pigs!”

By resituating ourselves in adoration and in contemplation, the marvels God has done for us bring about our Christian condition!

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.

Everyone who asks receives; everyone who seeks finds; everyone who knowks will have the door opened.

Is there anyone among you who would hand his son a stone when he asked for bread?”

Our secret is the Infinite Love of God beating in our heart. It is in Him, in Christ, that all obstacles to Love are overcome. What is sacred is above all God’s Love which is above all a secret, one which we receive and can give.

We give it in the discretion of our Heavenly Father, of Jesus and of the Holy Spirit. This silent discretion has us enter into thanksgiving in the Eucharist. If we walk on this road of humility, we gather together the treasures God gives us, in the deep reception of this singularity which calls us.

And so we can bring about this precious work of a deepening and of intensity of our being, and we seek to help others on this path.

Our way of becoming more human passes through help to the way of humanisation of others.

Overflowing with him from our being, I must try to keep the proper distance from him, to respect him so as to help him also become himself on his path of singularity.

"Therefore, always treat others as you would like them to treat you; that is the Law and the Prophets.

Enter by the narrow gate, since the road that leads to destruction is wide and spacious, and many take it ; but it is a narrow gate and a hard road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

From now on, I can feel in myself the blossoming forth that God desires, I try to respect it and to let it grow.

My walking is no longer indifferent, I don’t wander her and tehre any longer, I walk on my path, listening to what in myself or in the encounter with another, really speaks to me, getting me to be opened up to the promise for myself but also for all the others.

On this ’narrow’ path, I encounter Jesus’ Word, and so I come to realise just how much it is alive, how much it indicates to me the beauty of Life which is given.

In God’s Love, we look at each other with much rspect, for we are temples of the Holy Spirit, the dwelling place of the living God, father, Son and Holyu spirit.

God has created us out of Love, He introduces us into his overflowing Love. So as to dwell in this Love we watch over all our thoughts in order that they be in Chrsit Jesus. And so we remain in Jesus’ thoughts and have favourable thoughts one for another, thoughts of blessings and of happiness.

We ask for the grace to make people happy around us.
