#GospelToday (Mt 5:20-26)
"I tell you, unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
You have heard that it was said to your ancestors, 'You shall not kill; and whoever kills will be liable to judgment.' But I say to you, whoever is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment, and whoever says to his brother, 'Raqa,' will be answerable to the Sanhedrin, and whoever says, 'You fool,' will be liable to fiery Gehenna.
Therefore, if you bring your gift to the altar, and there recall that your brother has anything against you, leave your gift there at the altar, go first and be reconciled with your brother, and then come and offer your gift.
Settle with your opponent quickly while on the way to court with him. Otherwise your opponent will hand you over to the judge, and the judge will hand you over to the guard, and you will be thrown into prison.
Amen, I say to you, you will not be released until you have paid the last penny."

"The apostolate was substantially the same among all the Apostles: all could witness to Jesus’ Resurrection, receive the revelation of the Christian truth, write canonical works, and govern the Church of Christ. Peter, however, received in addition a unique privilege, which, on the level of jurisdictional power, placed him at once above all the other Apostles…. Peter is the foundation upon which Christ will build his Church. The gates of hell, the powers of death, will not prevail against her. Peter will receive the power of the keys in order to open and close the Kingdom."
~ Cardinal Charles Journet
#GospelToday (Mk 7:31-37)
Again he left the district of Tyre and went by way of Sidon to the Sea of Galilee, into the district of the Decapolis. And people brought to him a deaf man who had a speech impediment and begged him to lay his hand on him.
He took him off by himself away from the crowd. He put his finger into the man's ears and, spitting, touched his tongue; then he looked up to heaven and groaned, and said to him, "Ephphatha!" (that is, "Be opened!") And [immediately] the man's ears were opened, his speech impediment was removed, and he spoke plainly.
He ordered them not to tell anyone. But the more he ordered them not to, the more they proclaimed it. They were exceedingly astonished and they said, "He has done all things well. He makes the deaf hear and [the] mute speak."
The day my System76 Darter Pro arrived I made a hard switch. It was reminiscent of the day I started drinking coffee – tea just wasn’t for me on the daily anymore.
However, every change has a journey. This is mine.
@adgaps Just rules should certainly be followed and social norms can be of great benefit when they tend towards charity and justice.
This is a fear game. Don’t fear inspire others to return to normalcy.
