Mt 5: 17-19

“Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets; I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not one letter, not one stroke of a letter, will pass from the law until all is accomplished. Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, will be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. New Revised Standard Version, copyright 1989, by the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the United States of America. Used by permission. All rights reserved. USCCB approved.

Bringing God's Life and Love

In today’s Gospel, Jesus brings to fruition the law established by Moses and fulfills the promises from the Old Testament. The law was followed perfectly by Christ. Therefore, the objective of the law is that we learn to look to Christ himself, not just the written rules, for our righteousness. I like to think of Christ as the manifestation of the law. Jesus calls all to “obey and teach” the commandments, something no doubt easier said than done. It helps me to remember that, when I obey God’s will, I am taking my place in the fulfillment of the law just as Jesus did so perfectly. In this Lenten season, let’s do our best to perform the corporal and spiritual works of mercy, to put on the face of Jesus for the rest of the world, and be a means of bringing God's life and love to others as Jesus taught us. —Andrew Perz is a senior at St. Ignatius High School, Cleveland OH.

Prayer

May it please the supreme and divine Goodness to give us all abundant grace ever to know his most holy will and perfectly to fulfill it. —St. Ignatius of Loyola

Welcome to JesuitPrayer.org

Ignatian spirituality reminds us that God pursues us in the routines of our home and work life, and in the hopes and fears of life's challenges. The founder of the Jesuits, Saint Ignatius of Loyola, created the Spiritual Exercises to deepen our relationship with Christ and to move our contemplation into service.
