Topic of the Week   (Baramouda 17-30)
Watch and Pray

Verse of the Week
"Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."

- Matthew 26:41

Meaning: Watch and pray is a key to Christian spirituality and our struggle against temptations. Hereby Jesus' soul is strengthened and He faces death courageously. For, while the divine will of the Father and the Son is one, the Lord becomes obedient to the Father in His humanity. In contrast to Jesus' vigilance, His disciples sleep. Since body and soul are united, the spirit is paralyzed by a lethargic body. A willing spirit, recognizing the weakness of the flesh, knows it needs God's presence and power. True faith is nourshed by ardent, vigilant prayer.

Proverb of the Week
"Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weights the hearts."

- Proverbs 21:2
