Saint Anthony, pray for us – 

A new patch and an old garment are incompatible. New wine and old wineskins are incompatible. Jesus does not offer these domestic proverbs to provide sewing tips for James and John or wine storage tips for Peter and Andrew. Jesus offers these proverbs to point to the gospel message. God’s kingdom is present in Jesus, and the old patterns of religions cannot contain Christ’s new ways.
