23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

September 5, 2011

LOVE LEADS TO CORRECTION

One of the more difficult aspects of the Kingdom of God concerns fraternal correction, which is the subject of all three readings today.

But too often our correction has more to do with us than with others.  It becomes a chance to prove ourselves right and the other wrong.

But St. Paul tells us that “Love does not do evil to the neighbor; hence it is the fulfillment of the law.”

This Sunday, we find out of we might avoid the pitfalls and be successful in our efforts to correct other and how them and us accountable to the Gospel we profess.
