Whoever receives you receives me

“Whoever receives you receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me.” (MT 10: 40) 

How important we are to Our Lord—all who receive the disciples of Jesus receive him and God who sent him, and they will be rewarded accordingly. He identifies with us and connects us with His Father. We can bring Him not only to our homes but also to our friends and communities. Sometimes this could bring some persecution to us, but the reward is greater than the danger—“for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.”

“Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.” (Gospel Acclamation)
