Readings for today’s Mass
Our political leaders today have that same understanding. They know how the law is suppose to keep good order, they also understand how it can hold people back. At the same time, they know how it can work for their own gain. When a politician is accused of legal or ethical misconduct, the response i most often hear is "I did not violate the law." This is about the letter of the law. Their practice of of the law is not always a good example to follow.
Today Jesus invites us to understand the intent of the law and to act accordingly. It is one thing to know what the law says and another thing to know how to appropriately put it into practice for the common good.
Are there laws that you struggle with? Is it because they infringe on your freedom or because they do not serve the common good?
