Would any of you who are parents
give your child a wētā when asked for a fish?
Bad as you are, you know what to give your children;
how much more will the heavenly Father
give to those who ask.
Believe what Jesus says,
God is generous; God is good.
Gospel Reading - With God all things are possible
23Then Jesus said to his disciples, “It is almost impossible for a rich man to get into the Kingdom of Heaven. 24I say it again — it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God!”
25This remark confounded the disciples. “Then who in the world can be saved?” they asked.
26Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, no one. But with God, everything is possible.”. . . . .Matthew 19:23-26
Alleluia! Mary of Magdala said to the disciples,
I have seen the Lord!
The Lord is risen indeed! Alleluia!
The Lord's Prayer
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial
and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever.
