Matthew 23:1-12

There are some Catholics today who sit in judgment over others who do not fit their understanding of what the practice of Catholicism should be. Jesus was constantly confronted with those whose attitude excluded others. Does our practice of religion enable us to accept people who do not think and look and act exactly like we do? Is the sharing of our faith inclusive? Is the faith I profess obvious in my life? Does our practice of religion include compassionate service to the poor? Are we imitators of Jesus Christ?
