23rd SUNDAY (A) September 6, 2020

Ezekiel 33: 7-9; Psalm 95; Romans 13: 8-10; Matthew 18: 15-20

By Jude Siciliano, OP

 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

Jesus said to his disciples, "If your sister or brother sins against you, go and tell them their fault between you and them alone. If they listen to you, you have won over your brother or sister.

 

Reflection:

 

As Jesus’ disciples we are to be a people who reflect his presence in our midst.  Since forgiveness is such a rare commodity among individuals, communities, religions, tribes, races and nations, a community that is characterized by forgiveness would certainly be a way of announcing Jesus Christ to the world. If forgiveness were the hallmark of our Christian community, we would be what Jesus hoped for us to be – "a city built on a hilltop," a " light to the nations."

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • What effect has forgiveness had on my own life?

  • What person or institution am I called to forgive?

  • Let me begin the forgiveness process by praying for the one(s) who have offended me.
