Homily for Wednesday of the 10th Week in Ordinary Time
Jun 10th, 2020 by Fr. Jack
In today’s Gospel passage, Jesus showed that He was respectful of Jewish tradition, but He also asserted that He came to complete the Law and the Prophets, that is, to bring their true objective to fulfillment. So, while Jesus respected the many good aspects of His religious tradition, He was also receptive to the ways that God willed the development of that tradition.
We, too, are called to value the many good things in our own religious tradition, to acknowledge any shadow sides to that tradition, and to be open to the ways that the LORD is constantly renewing and inspiring that tradition.+
