Where two or three gather in my name Catholic Gospels - Matthew, Luke, Mark, John - Inspirations of the Holy Spirit Matthew 18:15-20

15 If another member of the church sins against you, go and point out the fault when the two of you are alone. If the member listens to you, you have regained that one.
16 But if you are not listened to, take one or two others along with you, so that every word may be confirmed by the evidence of two or three witnesses.
17 If the member refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if the offender refuses to listen even to the church, let such a one be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.
18 Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
19 Again, truly I tell you, if two of you agree on earth about anything you ask, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.
20 For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them." (NRSV)

Inspiration of the Holy Spirit - From the Sacred Heart of Jesus

23rd Sunday in ordinary time - Where two or three gather in my name The Church is my mystical body. I am the head, and you are the members. You all come to partake of my divinity when you remain united in the true faith of the Apostles. So long as you remain bound by the truth, you will prosper together and secure the gifts that I have promised. This is why it is very important to keep faithfulness to your fellowship; otherwise unless you gather with me, you will scatter.

Right from the very beginning of my Church there were those who rebelled against my teachings and became a cause of concern, they are the imitators of Judas, who having come to know the light, chose to live in darkness.

It is your responsibility to try to gain them back to the flock. If they donít listen to you; it is good to have others come with you to discuss the matter with your brother or sister. If your efforts donít produce any results, pray for their conversion.

My Catholic Church has been given the power to bind on earth as in Heaven; this has been met with strong opposition from different groups throughout the ages. But you must forgive others and pray for them to come to the light. The integrity of my teachings must be kept at all costs and the truth must not be compromised.

I will always be with my Church. It takes life from my life, its heart beats with the strength of my heart, the blood of the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist is my own blood that continues to nourish, purify and strengthen souls for eternal life.

Every time you pray I listen to you. Every time you pray with others in a group you are in agreement, in this way you bind your intentions through your desires. The prayer made in union with others has great value because it represents the unity that I want in my Church.

Unite yourself with others and pray in agreement, for the unity of the Church, for the conversion of sinners and for all the needs of your fellowmen. Let your prayers become arrows of love that will pierce the Divine Will to obtain your desires.
