February 23 ~ Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

In today’s Gospel, Jesus makes clear how we are to live: turn the other cheek, hand over your cloak as well as your tunic, asked to walk a mile, walk two. All of this builds up to the hardest of all: LOVE YOUR ENEMIES and PRAY FOR THOSE WHO PERSECUTE YOU. But don’t despair! We find hope in St. Paul’s letter to the Corinthians: “… you are the temple of God, … the Spirit of God dwells in you..” We – you – can do anything if you are open to the power of God, the love of Jesus, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
