February 6-12, 2017 – Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time (A)
“Blessed are they who follow the law of the Lord.” - Psalm 119
Jesus continues the Sermon on the Mount - telling the disciples they must go beyond the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees to follow the law of love – the greatest commandment. He entreats them to let their ‘yes’ mean ‘yes,’ and provides many examples of his meaning. How often do we fulfill the letter of the law and not its spirit? Tom's song, Blessed Are They, offers time for reflection.
