Topic of the Week   (Amshir 6-12)
Turn Away

Verse of the Week
"'Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.'"

- Matthew 7:6

Meaning: Jesus warns His disciples to turn away from opponents and those incapable of receiving His message, and to turn toward those who are receptive. Dogs and swine refer to heathen peoples, but here Jesus' own Jewish contemporaries are obviously not excluded. According to the Church Fathers, dogs are those so deeply immersed in godlessness that they show no hope of change, while swine are those who habitually live an unchaste and immoral life-style. The pearls are Christ's teachings, or the 'inner mysteries' of the Christian faith, particulary the Eucharist.

Proverb of the Week
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths."

- Proverbs 3:5,6
