Season of Kaitha
Know the tree from its fruits.
Reading 3, 1 Jn 4: 7-11 : The one who is born from God.
||Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God, and he who loves is born of God and knows God.
||He who does not love does not know God; for God is love.
||In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him.
||In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the expiation for our sins.
||Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another
Gospel, Lk 6: 43-45 : Know the tree from its fruits.
||"For no good tree bears bad fruit, nor again does a bad tree bear good fruit;
||for each tree is known by its own fruit. For figs are not gathered from thorns, nor are grapes picked from a bramble bush.
||The good man out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil man out of his evil treasure produces evil; for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
