The Gospel of Matthew today reveals three nuggets of wisdom that the Lord offers in the Sermon on the Mount:

  • Do not waste or squander the gifts of life and faith
  • Be fair and just with one another
  • Work hard to seek God above all else

The teaching is easy to understand.  The hard part?  Putting it into practice every day!

Mass Readings – 16th Sunday of the Year

“Lord, where do I see you today?” is perhaps a powerful question that reorients how we see the world.  The Holy Spirit continues to work in the spectrum of our lives – good, bad, and ugly – to guide and strengthen us for the journey to heaven.  May we actively seek the Lord’s presence in our lives and respond all our hearts.
