The Lord’s message, through Moses, was to “take no revenge and cherish no grudge . . . love your neighbor as yourself” (Leviticus 19:18). We might think, “Great in theory, but not always realistic!”
Then Jesus in today’s Gospel goes even further. Take a slap in the face and then turn the other cheek? Treat enemies the same as friends? Again, we’re tempted to think that those are nice ideals, but not very practical in the “real world.”
Paul echoes Jesus when he tells the Corinthians that what passes for human wisdom is absurdity to God.

In the meantime, the font will be decorated with the colors of the seasons as we ask St. John the Baptist to guide us. Please note that all Baptisms have and will take place in the St. Gianna Chapel.
