Can all be blessed to make “The God-Moses-Jesus-Catholic Connection”? #22. #22.

May all be blessed to be “simple” enough to have the “wisdom” to make important “connections”!


Question 1:  “How can anyone make ‘The God-Moses-Jesus-Catholic Connection’?

Answer:  “Anyone may start with Today’s Reading.  Lv 19:12 and 11-18 show that God ‘connects’ with Moses:  ‘Speak to the whole assembly of the children of Israel and tell them:  ‘Be holy, for I, The Lord your God am holy.'”


Question 2:  “What did Moses tell people to do to be ‘holy’?”

Answer:  “Moses was clear about how to ‘be holy’. ‘Holy’ people must obey:

  1. “You shall not steal.  You shall not lie or speak falsely to one another. You shall not swear falsely by my name, thus profaning the name of your God.  I am The Lord.
  2. You shall not defraud or rob your neighbor.  You shall not withhold overnight the wages of your day laborer.
  3. You shall not curse the deaf, or put a stumbling block in front of the blind, but you shall fear your God.  I am The Lord.
  4. You shall not act dishonestly in rendering judgment.  Show neither partiality to the weak nor deference to the mighty, but judge your fellow men justly.
  5. You shall not go about spreading slander among your kin;  nor shall you stand by idly when your neighbor’s life is at stake.
  6. You shall not bear hatred for your brother in your heart.  Though you may have to reprove him, do not incur sin because of him.  Take no revenge and cherish no grudge against your fellow countrymen.’
  7. Then, Moses makes ‘The God-Moses-Jesus-Catholic Connection’ by giving This Word of God to Jesus:  ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’


Question 3.  “Do The Psalms help us affirm ‘The God-Moses-Jesus-Catholic Connection’?”

Answer:  “Psalms 19:8-15 tell us ‘The law of The Lord is perfect, refreshing the soul.  The decree of The Lord is worthy of trust, giving wisdom to the simple.’

Catholics are ‘simple’ enough have that ‘wisdom’ to most meaningfully make ‘The God-Moses-Jesus-Catholic Connection’ in Mt. 16:18-20:  ‘And I say unto you thou art Peter and on this rock I build My Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.  I give you the keys to The Kingom of Heaven’.


Question 4:  “Why should people pray to be ‘simple’ enough to have the ‘wisdom’ to make ‘The God-Moses-Jesus-Catholic Connection’?”

Answer:  “Mt.25:31-40 tells us that those who make ‘The God-Moses-Jesus-Catholic Connection’ are blessed by Teachings of God, Moses, Jesus, and The Catholic Church!

  1. ‘For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me,
    in prison and you visited me.’
  2. Then the righteous will answer him and say, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink?  When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you?
  3. When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?’ And The King will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of Mine, you did for Me.’”


Question 5: “Does ‘The Moses-Jesus-God-Catholic Connection’ tell us whose souls are thrown into hell’s eternal agony?”

Answer:  “The Connection is clear in Mt.25:41-46  ‘Depart from me, you accursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the Devil and his angels.

  1. ‘For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, a stranger and you gave Me no welcome, naked and you gave Me no clothing, ill and in prison, and you did not care for Me.’
  2. ‘Then they will answer and say, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison, and not minister to your needs?’
  3. He will answer them, ‘Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for Me.’  And these will go off to eternal punishment,
    but the righteous to eternal life.’


May every soul be blessed with a mind ‘simple’ enough to have the ‘wisdom’ to make “The God-Moses-Jesus-Catholic Connection”.
