“Then the disciples of John came to him, saying, "Why do we and the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not fast?" And Jesus said to them, "Can the wedding guests mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? The days will come, when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast. And no one puts a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch tears away from the garment, and a worse tear is made. Neither is new wine put into old wineskins; if it is, the skins burst, and the wine is spilled, and the skins are destroyed; but new wine is put into fresh wineskins, and so both are preserved."
Are you eager and excited and ready to grow Spiritually? In today’s Gospel Jesus opens our minds to the thought of “new wine skins” so that we to maybe open and ready to receive the Holy Spirit. So which came first the Fasting of the Feast? LOL.. I know that has chicken/egg tone to it, sorry. It just sounded funny, so I thought I’d say it. There was no reason to Fast while they were walking with Jesus. Isn’t that obvious, the disciples experienced a certain overwhelming, overflowing Joy… a living Blissfulness that words can’t describe. There was only a time to celebrate, learn and grow.
And His Most Blessed Mother,
