"I have come not to abolish but to fulfil." Matthew 5 : 17
jesus-and-law

Today’s Gospel is about the Law and the Prophets.  The Jews use the word ‘Law’ to refer to several things.  The Ten Commandments,  The Pentateuch,  all the Sacred Writings,  and the Prophets.  When Jesus says in this passage from the Sermon on the Mount that He has come to fulfil the Law.  Jesus fulfils the Law and the Prophets.  He obeys the commands of the Law,  makes good its promises and corrects its defects.  Jesus points to the basic law of God written in the hearts of men and women.

Prayer

May all leaders respect the dignity of the human person, and work towards the common good. We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen
