Twentieth Saturday – Feast of the Queenship of Mary

“They preach but they do not practice.”                   (Matthew 23, 1-12)


 pharisees 2

Strong words issuing

From a perhaps exasperated Jesus!

He who reads our hearts,

Probes our hidden motivations,

Seeking honesty, coherence, consistency.

Mere words are empty, ineffective,

If not reflected in our lives.



Jesus’ image shines forth

In what we are,

Not in what we say.

Mary said little,

But lived much.

This the secret to build the Kingdom,

To be a beacon for others,

To find the Christ;

To love Him!
