'Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine,
you did for me.'

Gospel Passages in Cornerstone context

In our lives we often look to the Bible for guidance, Jesus provides us with leadership on our path through this life, and most importantly, our Journey with God.

We work in the belief that God has created each of us to live a certain life; to be a certain person, living and thinking in a specific way, and doing specific tasks.  It is our first obligation to find out just exactly what and who He created us to be.

We find out who we were created to be through discernment.  This self examination helps us to identify our Charisms and gifts, which lead us to knowing what it is we were made to do in this life.  Below in the Scripture &Research Tools section, are some links in the Gifts & Discernment group that can be helpful to you.

In the meantime, and I'm sure after we inform ourselves as well, God calls each and everyone of us to serve each other.  Whether it's Jesus washing the feet of His disciples or His his statement, "Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me," it seems plain to me that ministry, service to others must be a part of any possible plan for our life.

Ministry is important to our spirit, as well.  Living this earthly life, understanding and living through our spirit can give us a perspective that is vital to our secular place in the world.  Thinking only through and about this physical world and our physical self, limits us from the full potential of our eternal soul.

In this section you will find passages of the Gospel and statements from the Catechism interpreted in the context of the Cornerstone experience. But first scroll down for more information.

Matthew 25:34-46

Then the king will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.'

Then the righteous will answer him and say, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?'

And the king will say to them in reply, 'Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.'

Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you accursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, a stranger and you gave me no welcome, naked and you gave me no clothing, ill and in prison, and you did not care for me.'

Then they will answer and say, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison, and not minister to your needs?'

He will answer them, 'Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me.' 

And these will go off to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life."

Matthew 22:34-40

34 When the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together, 35 and one of them [a scholar of the law] tested him by asking, 36 "Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?" 37 He said to him, "You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. 38 This is the greatest and the first commandment. 39 The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments."
