The gospel of Wednesday in the 3rd week of Lent 2016
From Matthew – Chapter 5: verses 17 – 19
Jesus said to His disciples: ‘Do not imagine that I have come to abolish the Law and the Prophets. I have come not to abolish but to complete them. I tell you solemnly, till heaven and earth disappear not one dot, not one little stroke shall disappear from the Law until its purpose is achieved. Therefore, the man who infringes even one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be considered the least in the kingdom of heaven; but the man who keeps them and teaches them will be considered great in the kingdom of heaven.’
The gospel of the Lord.
