But I say to you

“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.” (MT 5: 21-22)

When we confront our thinking with Our Lord’s words, we can recognize when we think properly, like He, and when we are living in opposition to His words. Our Lord helps us to understand our dignity and our responsibilities to others. We always need “a new spirit.”

“Cast away from you all the crimes you have committed, says the LORD, and make for yourselves a new heart and a new spirit.” (Gospel Acclamation)
