“Jesus said to his disciples: ‘I tell you, unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
The scribes and the Pharisees were charged with hypocrisy in religion.
Jesus took the law to a new level, encouraging the people to live the law of love.
Pay attention today to your judgments to see if they bring you closer to Jesus’s standards.
Heritage word–“Every single step taken in the power of the Risen Jesus can make a difference in the re-creation of our world.”
(Sister Mary Sujita, 9th Superior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
