Early day today. I have Mass with the kids and then my buddy Maddie MacDoogle is coming over. I'm hosting a Sandwich and Family Game night tomorrow so there is much cleaning to do. Those pesky taxes are still there. I'm down to the last 3 months of farm receipts, though. Yesterday I made a batch of lavender candles and a batch of lemongrass candles. I made some small sugar cone pillars for Advent next year. I also grunged a dozen electric lamps for candle lamps.
Word of the day:
Friday of the First week of Lent
Today the Church celebrates : St. Porphyry, Bishop (+ 420)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 5:20-26.
I tell you, unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter into the kingdom of heaven. You have heard that it was said to your ancestors, 'You shall not kill; and whoever kills will be liable to judgment.' But I say to you, whoever is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment, and whoever says to his brother, 'Raqa,' will be answerable to the Sanhedrin, and whoever says, 'You fool,' will be liable to fiery Gehenna. Therefore, if you bring your gift to the altar, and there recall that your brother has anything against you, leave your gift there at the altar, go first and be reconciled with your brother, and then come and offer your gift. Settle with your opponent quickly while on the way to court with him. Otherwise your opponent will hand you over to the judge, and the judge will hand you over to the guard, and you will be thrown into prison. Amen, I say to you, you will not be released until you have paid the last penny.
