Sirach 15: 15-20; 1 Corinthians 2: 6-10;
Matthew 5: 17-37

By Jude Siciliano, OP

 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

I tell you, unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes

And Pharisees, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.

 

Reflection:

 

What will help us live the challenges Jesus places before us in the Sermon on the Mount? Certainly, we can’t fulfill them merely by gritting our teeth and putting our nose to the grindstone. Instead, realizing our limitations, we turn to Jesus and ask for a renewed gift of his Spirit. Sound idealistic? Yes, it does, but Jesus wouldn’t ask us to fulfill something he wouldn’t help us accomplish.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • What teaching of Jesus do I find hardest to follow these days?

  • What role does prayer play in my efforts to live his example?
