TWENTY-THIRD SUNDAY A  Lectionary #127

You have to speak the truth. If you don't, then you will suffer what those who might have benefited from that truth might have avoided if you had spoken up.

Ezekiel 33:7–9. At first, this sounds like Jeremiah’s lament from last Sunday: God's word will be spoken, whether you want to speak it or not. But this promise to the prophet has a catch: You are responsible for speaking up when silence would lead to condemnation. Salvation comes from fidelity to the word.

Psalm of the Day:  Ps (94) 95
This hymn of praise to God as king is the very first song of the Church each morning. It is used as the “invitatory” or preparation prayer for the daily liturgy of the hours.

Romans 13:8–10. The commandment to love doesn't narrow our responsibilities; it expands them immeasurably, since the law of love sums up all other commands and is “the fulfillment of the law.”

Matthew 18:15–20. Membership in the community does not lead to indifference or to the belief that misbehavior is a personal matter between another believer and God. Misbehavior by one believer has an effect on the whole community; therefore it is the responsibility of each believer to deal with what seems to be misbehavior. But this is not done publicly and in heated anger; it is done as gently as possible for as long as possible. Prayer is likewise first of all a communal act rather than an individual act.
