For a large part of the liturgical year, we devote ourselves to listening to the mystery of Christ in all its aspects unfolded as we seek God's truth and understanding.

Theme: God’s love invites us to wholeness.

Breaking Open the Word
Suggested text for faith sharing: Today’s Gospel Reading

Step One: Listen to the Word
When you hear the word enemy, what or who do you think fits that definition? How do you turn the other cheek? What does that mean to you? How complete is your love for that enemy?

Step Two: Look into your Life

Question for Children: What can you do at home or at school to show that you follow Jesus’ Commandments?

Question for Youth: Do you think Jesus was serious when he said to love your enemies? Why or why not?

Question for Adults: Have you ever told someone to do something for his/her own well being? Do you accept God’s laws in the same spirit of love and concern?
