Saturday: Be Perfect as God Is Perfect
I have gathered at least 25 items to donate. How does it feel? Do I feel relief and freedom? Grief? Uncertainty? I trust that I do not need things to be happy. Today, I take my “give away” box to a favorite charity.

Faith – Be “Perfect”:

In today’s Gospel, Jesus says, “you must be perfect as your Heavenly Father is perfect.” We are all sinners, yet we ought to strive towards living a Christ-like life. This will not be easy, but we can be sure that a Christ-like life will lead to a most fulfilling, joyful and challenging life.


All the time that we deprive ourselves of anything which it gives us pleasure to do, we are practicing a fast which is very pleasing to God because fasting does not consist solely of privations in eating and drinking, but of denying ourselves that which pleases our taste most.

- Saint John Vianney
