Wednesday 1st August - Memorial of Saint Alphonsus Liguouri, Bishop and Doctor of the Church - Scrip
The Gospel according to Matthew 13:44-46
Jesus said to his disciples:"The Kingdom of heaven is like a treasure buried in a field, which a person finds and hides again,and out of joy goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. Again, the Kingdom of heaven is like a merchant searching for fine pearls. When he finds a pearl of great price, he goes and sells all that he has and buys it."
In memory of Saint Alphonsus Liguouri, let us go to confession today. To clean away the dirt of sin that covers the hidden treasure buried deep within our heart. A pearl so precious that Jesus laid down His life to pay our ransom with His precious blood.
