Hos 11:1-4, 8e-9��; Ps 80:2ac and 3b, 15-16��; Mt 10:7-15��

The saints call us to holy forgetfulness. We are to remember only what God wants us to remember. We are not to be so attached to memories of the Lord’s deeds of old that we cannot receive his mercies that are new each morning. Rather, we are to be so detached from our memories and our desires that we only want what God wants.
