In this video from Life Teen, Joel Stepanek helps us understand the readings for the Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time for Year A. There is a lot of love in this week’s readings.
The first reading helps us understand what love is. This reading is reflected back in the gospel reading. Jesus is talking about “going the extra mile”. He is teaching that we should go above an beyond.
God always does more. We should do more also. God extends mercy to us. We should be merciful also.
