Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

In his teaching on the Law of Moses, Jesus gives us tow more examples of how disciples are to act. The issues of retribution and love of enemies are difficult challenges for us. It is not easy to desire revenge and to ignore or even oppress those who are different from us. The Kingdom-teaching that Jesus demands is quite different from what might be the status quo in dealing with others. We are called to a greater law, the law of love. We are called to attitudes and actions that see others as worth of God’s love, and deserving of our respect and compassion.
