“Beware of the scribes, who like to go around in long robes and accept greetings in the marketplaces, seats of honor in synagogues, and places of honor at banquets. They devour the houses of widows and, as a pretext, recite lengthy prayers. They will receive a very severe condemnation.”
- What is your attitude toward such “scribes” in our day, whether within yourself or within someone else?
- How can you look upon “scribes” with love while not condoning behaviors?
- How can you spread the Gospel of love today?
Heritage word—“If we love, we can trust ourselves to seek the truth.”
(Sister Joan Marie, 9thProvincial of the Toledo Province)
