This podcast looks at the relationship of our spiritual and psychological worlds. They are deeply intertwined in the inner room of our heart. Jesus welcomed His emotions: He cried when His friend died, He was angry at the hypocrisy of people, frustrated at His disciples' slow learning, exhausted after a long day of work. The Bible offers a divine perspective for the development of the human heart in which God's laws are written. Finding lessons in the Bible to help us pray better and listen to God's will for our lives, we seek to fuel our love for God with the fire of our emotions.

    God is our shield and refuge.
    PRV 30:5-9
    Every word of God is tested;
    he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.
    Add nothing to his words,
    lest he reprove you, and you will be exposed as a deceiver.

    Two things I ask of you,
    deny them not to me before I die:
    Put falsehood and lying far from me,
    give me neither poverty nor riches;
    provide me only with the food I need;
    Lest, being full, I deny you,
    saying, “Who is the LORD?”
    Or, being in want, I steal,
    and profane the name of my God.

    Responsorial Psalm
    PS 119:29, 72, 89, 101, 104, 163
    R. (105) Your word, O Lord, is a lamp for my feet.
    Remove from me the way of falsehood,
    and favor me with your law.
    R. Your word, O Lord, is a lamp for my feet.
    The law of your mouth is to me more precious
    than thousands of gold and silver pieces.
    R. Your word, O Lord, is a lamp for my feet.
    Your word, O LORD, endures forever;
    it is firm as the heavens.
    R. Your word, O Lord, is a lamp for my feet.
    From every evil way I withhold my feet,
    that I may keep your words.
    R. Your word, O Lord, is a lamp for my feet.
    Through your precepts I gain discernment;
    therefore I hate every false way.
    R. Your word, O Lord, is a lamp for my feet.
    Falsehood I hate and abhor;
    your law I love.
    R. Your word, O Lord, is a lamp for my feet.

    Alleluia
    MK 1:15
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    The Kingdom of God is at hand;
    repent and believe in the Gospel.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Gospel
    LK 9:1-6
    Jesus summoned the Twelve and gave them power and authority
    over all demons and to cure diseases,
    and he sent them to proclaim the Kingdom of God
    and to heal the sick.
    He said to them, “Take nothing for the journey,
    neither walking stick, nor sack, nor food, nor money,
    and let no one take a second tunic.
    Whatever house you enter, stay there and leave from there.
    And as for those who do not welcome you,
    when you leave that town,
    shake the dust from your feet in testimony against them.”
    Then they set out and went from village to village
    proclaiming the Good News and curing diseases everywhere

    Are you guided to goodness or led astray your by ego?

    Are you guided to goodness or led astray your by ego?

    Jesus invites us to be part of his family
    PRV 21:1-6, 10-13
    Like a stream is the king’s heart in the hand of the LORD;
    wherever it pleases him, he directs it.

    All the ways of a man may be right in his own eyes,
    but it is the LORD who proves hearts.

    To do what is right and just
    is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.

    Haughty eyes and a proud heart–
    the tillage of the wicked is sin.

    The plans of the diligent are sure of profit,
    but all rash haste leads certainly to poverty.

    Whoever makes a fortune by a lying tongue
    is chasing a bubble over deadly snares.

    The soul of the wicked man desires evil;
    his neighbor finds no pity in his eyes.

    When the arrogant man is punished, the simple are the wiser;
    when the wise man is instructed, he gains knowledge.

    The just man appraises the house of the wicked:
    there is one who brings down the wicked to ruin.

    He who shuts his ear to the cry of the poor
    will himself also call and not be heard.

    Responsorial Psalm
    PS 119:1, 27, 30, 34, 35, 44
    R. (35) Guide me, Lord, in the way of your commands.
    Blessed are they whose way is blameless,
    who walk in the law of the LORD.
    R. Guide me, Lord, in the way of your commands.
    Make me understand the way of your precepts,
    and I will meditate on your wondrous deeds.
    R. Guide me, Lord, in the way of your commands.
    The way of truth I have chosen;
    I have set your ordinances before me.
    R. Guide me, Lord, in the way of your commands.
    Give me discernment, that I may observe your law
    and keep it with all my heart.
    R. Guide me, Lord, in the way of your commands.
    Lead me in the path of your commands,
    for in it I delight.
    R. Guide me, Lord, in the way of your commands.
    And I will keep your law continually,
    forever and ever.
    R. Guide me, Lord, in the way of your commands.




    Alleluia
    LK 11:28
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Blessed are those who hear the word of God
    and observe it.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Gospel
    LK 8:19-21
    The mother of Jesus and his brothers came to him
    but were unable to join him because of the crowd.
    He was told, “Your mother and your brothers are standing outside
    and they wish to see you.”
    He said to them in reply, “My mother and my brothers
    are those who hear the word of God and act on it.”

    We are messengers of the Word today

    We are messengers of the Word today

    What are you doing to spread the Gospel like Matthew did?

    EPH 4:1-7, 11-13
    Brothers and sisters:
    I, a prisoner for the Lord,
    urge you to live in a manner worthy of the call you have received,
    with all humility and gentleness, with patience,
    bearing with one another through love,
    striving to preserve the unity of the Spirit
    through the bond of peace:
    one Body and one Spirit,
    as you were also called to the one hope of your call;
    one Lord, one faith, one baptism;
    one God and Father of all,
    who is over all and through all and in all.

    But grace was given to each of us
    according to the measure of Christ’s gift.

    And he gave some as Apostles, others as prophets,
    others as evangelists, others as pastors and teachers,
    to equip the holy ones for the work of ministry,
    for building up the Body of Christ,
    until we all attain to the unity of faith
    and knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood,
    to the extent of the full stature of Christ.


    Responsorial Psalm
    PS 19:2-3, 4-5
    R. (5) Their message goes out through all the earth.
    The heavens declare the glory of God;
    and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
    Day pours out the word to day,
    and night to night imparts knowledge.
    R. Their message goes out through all the earth.
    Not a word nor a discourse
    whose voice is not heard;
    Through all the earth their voice resounds,
    and to the ends of the world, their message.
    R. Their message goes out through all the earth.




    Alleluia
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    We praise you, O God,
    we acclaim you as Lord;
    the glorious company of Apostles praise you.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Gospel
    MT 9:9-13
    As Jesus passed by,
    he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the customs post.
    He said to him, “Follow me.”
    And he got up and followed him.
    While he was at table in his house,
    many tax collectors and sinners came
    and sat with Jesus and his disciples.
    The Pharisees saw this and said to his disciples,
    “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”
    He heard this and said,
    “Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do.
    Go and learn the meaning of the words,
    I desire mercy, not sacrifice.
    I did not come to call the righteous but sinners.”

    We search. God is relentless in searching for us.

    We search. God is relentless in searching for us.

    God’s ways are not our ways.
    IS 55:6-9
    Seek the LORD while he may be found,
    call him while he is near.
    Let the scoundrel forsake his way,
    and the wicked his thoughts;
    let him turn to the LORD for mercy;
    to our God, who is generous in forgiving.
    For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    nor are your ways my ways, says the LORD.
    As high as the heavens are above the earth,
    so high are my ways above your ways
    and my thoughts above your thoughts.

    Responsorial Psalm
    PS 145:2-3, 8-9, 17-18
    R. (18a) The Lord is near to all who call upon him.
    Every day will I bless you,
    and I will praise your name forever and ever.
    Great is the LORD and highly to be praised;
    his greatness is unsearchable.
    R. The Lord is near to all who call upon him.
    The LORD is gracious and merciful,
    slow to anger and of great kindness.
    The LORD is good to all
    and compassionate toward all his works.
    R. The Lord is near to all who call upon him.
    The LORD is just in all his ways
    and holy in all his works.
    The LORD is near to all who call upon him,
    to all who call upon him in truth.
    R. The Lord is near to all who call upon him.
    Reading 2
    PHIL1:20C-24, 27A
    Brothers and sisters:
    Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death.
    For to me life is Christ, and death is gain.
    If I go on living in the flesh,
    that means fruitful labor for me.
    And I do not know which I shall choose.
    I am caught between the two.
    I long to depart this life and be with Christ,
    for that is far better.
    Yet that I remain in the flesh
    is more necessary for your benefit.

    Only, conduct yourselves in a way worthy of the gospel of Christ.

    Alleluia
    ACTS 16:14B
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Open our hearts, O Lord,
    to listen to the words of your Son.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Gospel
    MT 20:1-16A
    Jesus told his disciples this parable:
    “The kingdom of heaven is like a landowner
    who went out at dawn to hire laborers for his vineyard.
    After agreeing with them for the usual daily wage,
    he sent them into his vineyard.
    Going out about nine o’clock,
    the landowner saw others standing idle in the marketplace,
    and he said to them, ‘You too go into my vineyard,
    and I will give you what is just.’
    So they went off.
    And he went out again around noon,
    and around three o’clock, and did likewise.
    Going out about five o’clock,
    the landowner found others standing around, and said to them,
    ‘Why do you stand here idle all day?’
    They answered, ‘Because no one has hired us.’
    He said to them, ‘You too go into my vineyard.’
    When it was evening the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman,
    ‘Summon the laborers and give them their pay,
    beginning with the last and ending with the first.’
    When those who had started about five o’clock came,
    each received the usual daily wage.
    So when the first came, they thought that they would receive more,
    but each of them also got the usual wage.
    And on receiving it they grumbled against the landowner, saying,
    ‘These last ones worked only one hour,
    and you have made them equal to us,
    who bore the day’s burden and the heat.’
    He said to one of them in reply,
    ‘My friend, I am not cheating you.
    Did you not agree with me for the usual daily wage?
    Take what is yours and go.
    What if I wish to give this last one the same as you?
    Or am I not free to do as I wish with my own money?
    Are you envious because I am generous?’
    Thus, the last will be first, and the first will be last.”

    Jesus journeys in Galilee and He journeys in our homes if we let Him

    Jesus journeys in Galilee and He journeys in our homes if we let Him

    Jesus journeys with men and women in Galilee. What joy must have this been?
    1 COR 15:12-20
    Brothers and sisters:
    If Christ is preached as raised from the dead,
    how can some among you say there is no resurrection of the dead?
    If there is no resurrection of the dead,
    then neither has Christ been raised.
    And if Christ has not been raised, then empty too is our preaching;
    empty, too, your faith.
    Then we are also false witnesses to God,
    because we testified against God that he raised Christ,
    whom he did not raise if in fact the dead are not raised.
    For if the dead are not raised, neither has Christ been raised,
    and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is vain;
    you are still in your sins.
    Then those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished.
    If for this life only we have hoped in Christ,
    we are the most pitiable people of all.

    But now Christ has been raised from the dead,
    the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.

    Responsorial Psalm
    PS 17:1BCD, 6-7, 8B AND 15
    R. (15b) Lord, when your glory appears, my joy will be full.
    Hear, O LORD, a just suit;
    attend to my outcry;
    hearken to my prayer from lips without deceit.
    R. Lord, when your glory appears, my joy will be full.
    I call upon you, for you will answer me, O God;
    incline your ear to me; hear my word.
    Show your wondrous mercies,
    O savior of those who flee
    from their foes to refuge at your right hand.
    R. Lord, when your glory appears, my joy will be full.
    Hide me in the shadow of your wings,
    But I in justice shall behold your face;
    on waking, I shall be content in your presence.
    R. Lord, when your glory appears, my joy will be full.

    Alleluia
    MT 11:25
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth;
    you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the Kingdom.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Gospel
    LK 8:1-3
    Jesus journeyed from one town and village to another,
    preaching and proclaiming the good news of the Kingdom of God.
    Accompanying him were the Twelve
    and some women who had been cured of evil spirits and infirmities,
    Mary, called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out,
    Joanna, the wife of Herod’s steward Chuza,
    Susanna, and many others
    who provided for them out of their resources.
