About Today Readings

St Bonaventure

Isaiah 1:10-17. To the upright I will show the saving power of God – Psalm 49(50):8-9, 16-17, 21, 23. Matthew 10:34 – 11:1.

Fight for love and justice

Today’s Gospel is one of those ones that does not seem to tally with some of the other of Jesus’ teachings. ‘I have not come to bring peace on earth, but a sword’, ‘I have come to set a man against his father etc’. But what I am getting from it today is that Jesus does not want us to be observers of God’s world. Instead, he wants us to fight for love, for justice and to make sure that God’s will is done.
