Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time

February 14, 2015

PERSON AND PERFORMANCE

Our theme from last week continues this week, and so it seems necessary to review what we already know. If you recall, we left Jesus off in a deserted place just before the Apostles found him. “Everyone was searching for him” So he got up and went with them to proclaim his message to the neighboring towns and synagogues.

Today’s readings offer a contrast between the Law of Moses and its fulfillment in Christ. According to the Law of Moses, what happened to a person with leprosy? But how did Jesus respond?

It happens a lot in the beginning of his ministry. . . Jesus healing people but not want them to say anything. Doesn’t it seems counter-intuitive? Doesn’t Jesus want people to know he who he is? Isn’t this the whole idea?

But there is a difference between loving the person and loving the performance.
