Beware of false prophets

From Catholic Link

Greetings on this the Wednesday of the Twelfth Week in Ordinary Time
Readings: 2 Kgs 22:8-13; 23:1-3; PS 119:33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 40; Mt 7:15-20
Notes: By their fruits you will know them.

If it ain’t these then it’s FALSE.

Based on sacred writings, fruitful in holiness.

First reading
He had the entire contents of the book of the covenant that had been found in the temple of the LORD, read out to them.
Standing by the column, the king made a covenant before the LORD that they would follow him and observe his ordinances, statutes and decrees
with their whole hearts and souls,
thus reviving the terms of the covenant
which were written in this book.
And all the people stood as participants in the covenant.

Responsorial Psalm
Teach me the way of your decrees, O Lord.

Alleluia Verse
Remain in me, as I remain in you, says the Lord;
whoever remains in me will bear much fruit.

Gospel Portion
So by their fruits you will know them.

The 12 Fruits of the Holy Spirit
The 12 fruits are charity (or love), joy, peace, patience, benignity (or kindness), goodness, longanimity (or long-suffering), mildness (or gentleness), faith, modesty, continency (or self-control), and chastity. (Longanimity, modesty, and chastity are the three fruits found only in the longer version of the text.)

Peace be with you,
