St. Anthony of Padua

Matthew 5:20-26

One of the hallmarks of the gospel of Jesus is that it is good news for sin­ners.  In other words, the good part of Good News is that it is not only the righteous, and certainly not only the self-righteous, who have access to God, but those who need God’s healing—quite a reversal of the prevail­ing ideas of ritual cleanliness accepted in Jesus’ day. We place our trust in Jesus.
