As we head into the season of Lent, the Church reminds us of our call to holiness. With the help of the Holy Spirit, it is totally possible for us to speak and act like Jesus. It can be challenging at times, but it can definitely be done. Join Gary as he looks at the Mass Readings for the 7th Sunday in Ordinary Time. Even though we may feel otherwise, holiness really is for EVERYONE!
In the readings for the 6th Sunday of Ordinary Time, Jesus makes it clear that He didn’t come to abolish the law or the prophets. Furthermore, He emphasizes the importance of keeping the commandments and setting a good example. Join Gary as he looks at this powerful message and reminds us of an important fact. Jesus tells us what He expects of us, but the choice is ours to make. His way or your way – which will you choose?
