Readings for the Week
February 23 - march 1, 2020

Reading for Sunday, February 23:

Lv 19:1-2, 17-18:  Our inner attitude before God has a fraternal dimension.  We must be holy because God is holy.

1Cor 3:16-23:  The Christian community is the temple of God and so is each Christian.  Hence,  respect is owed the community and each member.

Mt 5:38-48:  We are called not to encourage another’s injustice but to avoid vengeance.  We must desire good things for others in spite of any evil they may do us.

Today’s Message:  Offer no resistance to one who persecutes you.  Rather, love your neighbor as you love yourself.  As the Lord is gracious and merciful, treat others in the same way, humbling yourself before the Lord.
