Love your neighbor: 7th Sunday of Ordinary Time

Listen to the homily here.


Drive thru and McDonald’s
·      Lunch
·      1st window—waiting to pay
·      Someone passed me to the 2nd window
·      I wasn’t ticked, but it felt like a pet peeve!
·      I watched as she was buying a happy meal
·      Then I watched as she paid two different things
·      “She bought the lunch for you to have a wonderful day…”
It made my day…
·      Good things in others
·      And we must live to serve others
Leviticus 19
·      You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
·      The Golden Law!
·      Matthew 7:12: “So whatever you wish that men would do to you, do so to them; for this is the law and the prophets.”
We must love our neighbor…
·      We must not like everyone…but we must love them
1 Corinthians 3
·      Do you not know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?”
·      Responsorial: “The Lord is kind and merciful
o   So do you know this?
o   The Holy Spirit dwells in you?
o   You can experience God’s love and mercy to you
·      So do you try to do the same others?
·      Do you serve your neighbor?
o   Even if they are not popular…if they do or do not like our president…if they are sinful?
Love your neighbor!
