“Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. Stop judging and you will not be judged. Stop condemning and you will not be condemned. Forgive and you will be forgiven. Give and gifts will be given to you; a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap. For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you.” (LK 6: 36-38)
We are invited to be givers of self, not demanders. When our gift is free, creative and joyful, we can make our relatives happy, and “a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap.” Enjoy your gift, take care of your spouse and make her/him happy, and your life will be happy.
“Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life; you have the words of everlasting life.” (Gospel Acclamation)
