DAILY SPIRITUAL BOUQUET: Ezk 1:2-5.24-28, Mt. 17:22-27.
By REV. FR. SAMUEL FREDERICK

DAILY SPIRITUAL BOUQUET: Ezk 1:2-5.24-28, Mt. 17:22-27. Today's Gospel sets a number of practical lessons for our daily living under two distinct themes: Jesus' declaration of His own suffering, death and resurrection and the tax to be paid to the Temple of Jerusalem. The suffering and death of Jesus indicate His great love for humanity; His resurrection manifests that, sincere love never ends. The proclamation of His passion, death and resurrection reveals that Jerusalem is no more the centre of the new religion, but Jesus, that was why it was not necessary that Jesus should pay tax.
 
While it was not necessary that Jesus should pay tax, He paid to teach us to be responsible citizenS. Since Peter was a fisherman, Jesus asked him to get the money from the fish he sold to teach us how to pay tax from our earnings. Today's we are challenged to imitate Christ in being good citizens to fulfil our duties at work, in our family and the society. Paying our taxes, voting according to our conscience and participating in public services are part of our contribution to the common good of our society. We are called to do good always even when we are not obliged to do so. Doing good will always increase our credibility and help us to live in harmony and peace. 
 
May the Lord be with us as we take up our daily tasks this week and help us to be good citizens of our nation! Amen!! Good morning, do have a productive week!!!
