In today’s readings we hear about the law of Christ, this is not a law which binds but one which brings freedom and is fulfilled through genuine love and concern for others.
Jesus begins his sermon with the ‘Beatitudes’. We must start with proper attitude. An attitude is a mixture of belief and value, mind and heart. Jesus is a wise moral physician insisting that right and wrong actions stem from a good or a bad heart. The healing of the negative attitudes – anger, lust, infidelity is hard work demanding serious sacrifice.
We pray for the Church, that it may bring to people the things that no eye has seen and no ear has heard, things beyond the mind of man, all that God has prepared for those who love him.
