03-30-2024 Sirach 29 V20102 Neighbors receive from the merciful


The Book of Sirach Ch 28 v- One thru Two

1 The merciful lend to their neighbor, by holding out a helping hand, they keep the commandments. 2 Lend to your neighbor in his time of need, and pay back your neighbor in time.

Being like the merciful who lend to their neighbor is a practice that holds immense value and significance in our lives. It is a reflection of compassion, kindness, and the willingness to help those in need. There are several reasons why we should strive to embody these qualities and demonstrate them through our actions.

First and foremost, lending a helping hand to our neighbors is a fundamental aspect of living a virtuous and fulfilling life. It allows us to cultivate a sense of empathy and understanding towards others, fostering a sense of community and interconnectedness. By extending assistance to those in need, we not only alleviate their burden but also strengthen the bonds of friendship and solidarity among us.

Furthermore, the act of lending to our neighbors is a manifestation of our faith and commitment to following the commandments set forth by God. In various religious teachings, there is a clear emphasis on the importance of caring for others and showing mercy and compassion. By being generous and supportive towards our neighbors, we demonstrate our obedience to these teachings and uphold the values of love, kindness, and charity.

Moreover, lending to our neighbors in their time of need reflects our belief in the principle of reciprocity and mutual support. Just as we may find ourselves in need of assistance at some point in our lives, we recognize the importance of offering help to others when they are facing challenges or difficulties. By extending a helping hand to our neighbors, we create a cycle of generosity and goodwill that enriches our lives and strengthens the fabric of our communities.

In conclusion, being like the merciful who lend to their neighbor is a practice that not only benefits those in need but also enriches our own lives. It allows us to embody the values of compassion, kindness, and generosity, while also fulfilling our religious and moral obligations. By extending a helping hand to our neighbors and paying back our debts in time, we contribute to the well-being of our communities and uphold the principles of justice, integrity, and mutual support. It is through these acts of kindness and generosity that we can truly make a positive impact and create a more compassionate and harmonious society. Amen.

Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. The Lord’s Prayer.

At the Savior's command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say:

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil, graciously grant peace in our days, that, by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress, as we await the blessed hope and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen.

I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen Son in Law Mark Stern; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Our prayers for our niece Brittany. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

03-30-2024 Sirach 29 v-0102

**The Merciful**

The merciful, so kind and true,

They always know just what to do.

They lend a hand when others fall,

They heed the needys urgent call.

In times of trouble, they are near,

To wipe away the falling tear.

They give their all without a thought,

Their generous hearts can never be bought.

They know the value of a friend,

And on them, they can always depend.

They hold out a helping hand,

And keep the commandments of the land.

To lend to your neighbor in their time of need,

Is a noble act, a selfless deed.

For when you give without demand,

You truly walk in God's Commands.

So let us follow in their way,

And lend a hand without delay.

For in helping others, we will find,

True joy and peace of heart and mind. Amen.
