Pastor's Corner

Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time

February 16, 2020

What is the wisdom of God? Today’s First Reading helps us ask this question and invites us to choose between the wisdom of the world and the wisdom of God. The wisdom of the world, while amazing, is limited; the wisdom of God is infinite. Those who are faithful to God accept God’s will and learn how to distinguish between passions and sacrifices, selfishness and self-surrender, justice and oppression. In his letter, St. Paul invites the Corinthians to recall the message he shared with them when he first formed their community.

In St. Matthew’s Gospel, we find Jesus broadening the understanding of the Law at a time when a strong Pharisaic attitude prevented believers from living out the meaning of the Law and led them to fulfill only its external and superficial prescriptions. It may be worthwhile to evaluate our pastoral life and ask ourselves whether we base our responses on the wisdom that comes from the Lord or on our own whims and interests. Can we distinguish between the norms of the Church and the person who seeks our guidance and support without betraying the ecclesial commitment that we have assumed?
