23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Posted on

Originally delivered on September 9, 1990

Readings: Ezekial 33: 7-9; Romans 13: 8-10; Matthew 18: 15-20

In today’s readings, we are called to be loving critics.  Although it is difficult, it is a responsibility that we cannot escape.  We must be committed to tearing down arrangements that give unfair advantages to some but not all. We cannot elude our responsibility to offer our loving criticism.  As Ezekial tells us today, if we speak out and the wicked man doesn’t listen, then we are not responsible for his demise.  It’s always easier to not share our criticism, but today we are reminded that we are required to share our critical voices.
