Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time

God knows the depths of our hearts and souls. They see the games we play, especially our quests to find loopholes that will enable us to fulfill our whims without the hangover of a guilty conscience. So they sent our Brother to call BS on our foolishness. He tells us to open our eyes and be honest with ourselves. We know when we do our family wrong. And we know that our lawyerly minimizations cannot remove the sting. So let us stop acting like spoiled brats. God is not trying to harsh our fun. They simply want us to treat our family like family. Or is that a wisdom beyond our age?
