Wednesday 13th June, St Anthony of Padua, Priest and Doctor, Memorial

Matthew 5:17–19
Jesus said to the crowds, “Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets; I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. 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.”

Reflection

• The historical words of the prophets are endorsed by Jesus. How do I heed the prophetic warnings?
• Jesus fulfils the law and the prophets by living out God’s love. How I love others?
