Friends of the Rosary:

The Pharisees in Jesus’ day were used to point out the sins of people and their lack of holiness. The woman caught in adultery and the prostitute who washed the feet of Jesus are two examples of Pharisees exposing the sins of people.

Jesus responded by neither condemning nor threatening them with God’s wrath and punishment. Rather, He forgave both women and set them free from their accusers.

These Pharisees were no different to modern-day Pharisees who are quick to point out people’s sins and demand they live disciplined.

But Jesus wants mercy, not sacrifice.

In today’s Sunday’s reading (Mt 23:1-12) we see how Christ Jesus condemns the Pharisees for placing high expectations on people.

He said, “Do and observe all things whatsoever they tell you, but do not follow their example. For they preach but they do not practice.”

“You have but one master, the Christ. The greatest among you must be your servant. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, but whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!

To Jesus through Mary!
