February 12 -- Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Readings: Sirach 15:15-20, Psalm 119:1–2, 4–5, 17–18, 33–34, 1 Corinthians 2:6–10, Matthew 5:17–37
In this week’s video, we are reminded by Scott Powell that Jesus preached in the hills of Galilee like other revolutionaries of his time, but carried a very different message. Instead of eliminating the law, Jesus preaches a new law, one that transforms us and opens our hearts to God’s love.
Reflection: The point of the Old Law was to get the Israelites to follow and obey God. What is the point of the New Law?
