"For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it."
The central Christian prayer from the Gospel of Mathew and Luke.
"Don’t weep," said Jesus. Then He came to the stretcher, and those carrying it stood still. Jesus said, "Young man, listen! Get up!" The dead man immediately sat up and began talking.
Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
Look at Jesus and see God's original purpose in everything created. Everything finds its purpose in Him. He holds it all together right up to this moment.
Just then a lawyer stood up to test Jesus. "Teacher," he said, "what must I do to inherit eternal life?"
Martin Luther King Jr's prayer for the church.
"I am the living bread that came down from heaven."
Jesus' party invite recommendations.
When you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind.
A Franciscan Visual Benediction
Look the Lamb of God! Could there be peace?....Come and see!
If your enemies are hungry, feed them. If your enemies are thirsty, give them something to drink.
Those who gathered a lot had nothing left over, and those who gathered only a little had enough.
If you see some brother or sister in need and have the means to do something about it but turn a cold shoulder and do nothing, what happens to God's love?
Celebrate and rejoice, because our sister was dead and has come to life; she was lost and has been found
"I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
"Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you will be filled. Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh."
An Easter acclamation.
