Text Box: Sunday Scripture 
	The words of love that we speak must be lived out through our actions. We know that we fool no one when we say one thing but do the opposite. Promises made to a boss, a spouse or a friend ring hollow when the action that follows does not bear them out. God is the last person we should try to fool with empty words; he knows what is in our hearts. When we profess love for God, we must also act in loving ways.
Moses urges the people to obey the commandments of God, a blessing on their lives. The second reading reminds us that redemption is a gift from God to all people, brought about through the blood of Jesus. The Gospel compares those who practice the teachings of Jesus to a wise man who builds his house firmly anchored on a foundation of rock.
Text Box: Last week, the second collection for the Parish Development  Fund amounted to $ 660.00. This week, the 2nd collection is for the Building  Fund. Ash Wednesday Collection will be for SVDPS. Next week, the 2nd collection will be for the Bishopís Appeal Fund. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF OUR PARISH. MAY GOD REWARD YOUR GENEROSITY.
