Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

This Weeks Readings: Leviticus 19.1-2,17-18; Psalm 103; 1 Corinthians 3.16-23; Matthew 5.38-48.

The question St. Paul poses should stop one in his tracks. “Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?” What would our world be like if we challenged ourselves and remembered this maximin in our relationship to others? Jesus gave us a new command to love one another as He first loved us. Why then is it still so easy to disdain, exclude, and disrespect our neighbour?

Next Week's Readings: Isaiah 49.14-15; Psalm 62; 1 Corinthians 4.1-5; Matthew 6.24-34.
