St. Apollinaris

Matthew 12:14-21

Jesus rekindled the flame of love in the lives of so many who had been ignored by the rest of society.  His love embraced all. And so, the Pharisees, the moral majority, had some serious problems with him and we see in today’s gospel that they wanted to kill him. Through his son Jesus we have a very good idea of what God is like.  Now since we are created in the image and likeness of God and we call God “our Father” is it easy for others to know what Jesus was like by observing us? I hope we are not depriving others from knowing what Jesus is like.
