February 16 ~ Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time
It’s all about the Law this week. Sirach gives us great insight, “If you choose you can keep the commandments, they will save you;” The choice is ours to live by the law or not. In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus sets the bar high for us – it’s not simply about doing good and avoiding evil, there’s more: “whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do so will be called least in the kingdom of heaven.” What kind of example do you set with adults and with children? Pray for what you need: Kindness? Patience? Temperate speech? Self-control?
