This Sunday’s readings are quite short, direct, to the point and powerful. They don’t lend themselves to equivocal discussion. They deserve honest reflection. Most importantly they are a call to action.
Read carefully all three, not focusing on the dos and don’ts but on the major theme which directly addresses our encountered relationships whether they are complex, supportive, broken, growing etc.
At times when reading these passages we focus on how we can love, accept, and care. But a focus we may tend to give less attention to is in every relationship. There is the essential of reconciliation whether it is with our God, ourselves or another person or group or community or nation. In other words those are those in our lives we call “other.”
