Gospel: Matthew 5:38-42
“Go the extra mile”
“An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth”. We see and hear endless fightings everywhere. Be it in Israel, in our local front or perhaps , in your home. Personally, when we are wronged our impulse is to get even! However, Jesus suggest otherwise. To do good to those who wrong us. Stop keeping score, forgive and love! By ourselves, we cannot do this . We need the fruit of the Holy Spirit to be kind, gentle, peaceful and loving as Jesus does.
Let us call on the Holy Trinity and Mama Mary to help us be transformed into a forgiving and loving person . To sow peace . The world is broken enough with the pandemic, economic and ecological issues . Let us continuously pray that each day we may be a channel of peace, joy and love to every person we encounter today.
