Come To Me Like The Publican
October 22, 1991
dress me in humility, purity
and observation to Your Law,
for this will please the Father.
peace be with you; for this I tell you:
be like the publican;
for many of you condemn your neighbour, forgetting how only yesterday, you too, were locked in the same sleep; do not say: "I have made my house tidy and ready for the Lord; He may come now to me anytime; I am ready to receive Him; I am not like my neighbour, who does not fast, does not pray, but goes on living a wicked life;" receive your sight I tell you, your lips have already condemned you; cure yourself first and do not condemn the others who do not know their left hand from their right hand; come to Me like the publican and ask Me to be merciful to you, the sinner, for you are all subjects to sin; Temple! rise and serve Me your God, by helping the widow you will be serving Me;
go now in Peace, I am with you;
Glory be to God.
