Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Two metaphors

Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,

The Sunday readings for this liturgical year are mostly from the Gospel according to St. Matthew, which includes the Sermon on the Mount in chapters 5, 6 and 7.

The fragment from last week included the Beatitudes. They mark the beginning of the Sermon in which Christ offers us a summary of His moral teachings, a roadmap to live our lives as true disciples of His.

As you may recall, the Beatitudes are addressed to all because the natural law is applicable to everybody not just to Christians and, in principle, it is accessible to reason. Of course, because of the reality of sin, what, in principle, should be evident to everybody is not so evident for some people. That is why we need the teachings of Christ and His Church that enable us to better understand who we are and how to live our lives.
