Twenty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time

Do not assume that Ezekiel's and Jesus' advice is meant for you. It is just as likely, if not more so, that the intended recipient is your neighbor. Few among us want to see ourselves as participants in wickedness and sin, but we are, and if we love our neighbors, we will listen to them when they speak disconcerting truths. "If today you hear their voice, harden not your hearts."
