A LIFE PLAN

You are not an accident. No matter who you are God has created you out of love and He has a great purpose and destiny for your life. This destiny is revealed by God to you when you seek Him with all your heart, when you follow Him and live the beatitudes. When you love God and love your neighbour then God enlightens eyes of your heart so that you might know the hope to which you are called - HEAVEN!

 

Gospel

Matthew 16:21-27

21 From that time Jesus began to shew to his disciples, that he must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the ancients and scribes and chief priests, and be put to death, and the third day rise again.

22 And Peter taking him, began to rebuke him, saying: Lord, be it far from thee, this shall not be unto thee.

23 Who turning, said to Peter: Go behind me, Satan, thou art a scandal unto me: because thou savourest not the things that are of God, but the things that are of men.

24 Then Jesus said to his disciples: If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

25 For he that will save his life, shall lose it: and he that shall lose his life for my sake, shall find it.

26 For what doth it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his own soul? Or what exchange shall a man give for his soul?

27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels: and then will he render to every man according to his works.
