THE PARISH PRIEST WRITES:
Dear parishioners and dear friends
In the opening prayer of today’s Mass we hear ‘so that by deepening our sense of reverence , you may nurture in us what is good’.
The Readings that follow help to guide us in living out this hope, this wish.
In most of us there is some of the scribe and Pharisee whom Christ admonishes in the Gospel today. To help us, in daily life, to pay more than ‘lip service’ to God’s guidelines see them as the way to nurture the potential for what is good in our lives. At times it is very difficult to be wise or prudent and we want to be “FREE”, however, this is often pushing the ‘self destruct button’.
Think before you act. Guided by the instruction that the Readings give us today, think of God’s guidance as nurturing the GOOD in our lives and making the effort involved in so doing, therefore WORTH WHILE.
God bless you.
