About Today Readings

6th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Ecclesiasticus 15:15-20. Happy are they who follow the law of the Lord! – Psalm 118(119):1-2, 4-5, 17-18, 33-34. 1 Corinthians 2:6-10. Matthew 5:17-37.

Happy are all those who follow the Lord

Where are your boundaries and have they varied over time? Today’s reading is a direct list of teachings of significant moral and social concerns in the time of Jesus. What teachings would he offer today? In your daily life are there areas in need of contemplation and discernment. Over time and as you become more loving there should be movement from a rigid position but this should not blur the clear boundary set by your conscience. How then can you use your spiritual growth to offer wisdom and love to those who move beyond the boundaries you adhere to? This question is the answer to Jesus’ great commandment.
