HOLY FAMILY PARISH
7th SUNDAY in ORDINARY TIME
Our gospel continues today with St. Luke’s Sermon on the Plain, Jesus’ teachings on how to live a life pleasing to God. Jesus’ teachings are always challenging, perhaps especially today when he tells us that we must “love our enemies, do good to those who hate us, bless those who curse us, pray for those who mistreat us.” Who does that? Who does good to those people who threat them badly? Many times we struggle to do good to people who like us, forget those who hate us! And yet, Jesus tells us to love our enemies. Jesus calls us to be an example to others. There is too much hatred in the world – do not hate anyone. We look around and see people being mistreated – do not mistreat anyone. We are called to make the place we live in a better place. That is our task as Christians, to follow Jesus not just in words, but in action.
