Be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect

“And if you greet your brothers and sisters only, what is unusual about that? Do not the pagans do the same? So be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect.” (MT 5: 47-48)

“Be perfect” is not about perfection in doing things or in planning or organizing things; it is about relationship and about love. God is love and He doesn’t want us to be different from Him; we were created in His image and His likeness. Our Lord expects from us that we will follow His example and will be focused on love.

“Behold, now is a very acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” (Gospel Acclamation)
