We have a new Pastor, Fr. Peter. One always wonders how the change will affect everything from the sermon at Mass to the community outside of worship. Here are two helpful things I gleaned from today's sermon:
- This Sunday is in Ordinary Time, but with Jesus it is never ordinary time! With Jesus, time is always extraordinary.
- The Gospel tells us that anger is against the 5th commandment - Thou Shall not Kill. But righteous anger has its place -- namely that it is justifiable anger when a loved one is hurt. But once it is in the past, the anger must be relinquished and the forgiveness and healing allowed to take place.
