Mt 7:15-20
Jesus said to his disciples: “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing."
Gospel's Commentary
Today we are on guard. Why? There is a lot of noise around us! There are always some guys who like to brag about their wisdom and try to give us lessons by laughing at God. Their favorite subjects: God, the Church, the priests, the family... Do you want to try them out? "By their fruit you will recognize them" Jesus tells us. --Just ask those “prophets”: what family do you have? How many children? How many vocations have you brought? What about eternity? And you will see that "they do not collect grapes from thorns or figs from thistles".
