SEVENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME Lectionary #79

We sing “Holy, holy, holy” in praise of God. What is this divine holiness, and how is it manifested in human beings? In God it is the outpouring of the divine self in love; in humans it is the offering of one’s self in fidelity to God and self-sacrifice for the sake of another.

Leviticus 19:1-2, 17-18. The “holiness code” in the Book of Leviticus provided a foundation for observance of the Law: Be holy (that is, observe Torah) because God is holy. That holiness is expressed most completely in loving one’s neighbor as oneself.

Psalm of the Day: Psalm (102) 103
This individual thanksgiving, offered to God perhaps because of recovery from illness, praises divine mercy and fidelity.

1 Corinthians 3:16-23. In dealing with sexual immorality and division in the community at Corinth, Paul makes two points: First, God lives in you, so your body is not yours to dispose of as you see fit. Second, it really doesn’t make any difference who your teacher is, we are all one in Christ.

Matthew 5:38-48. Jesus continues his interpretation of what fidelity to God means by quoting and interpreting the oral Law (see last week’s Gospel). These two examples focus on ways to overcome hatred. This teaching is the basis for various forms of Christian non-violence and opposition to war, especially pacifism.
