It is through the littleness and humility of these children of hers that the triumph of her Immaculate Heart will be accomplished. This would enable them to receive the Word of God with love and docility, and thus truly believe in it and live it letter e. While the rich are filled with egoism, materialism and wickedness, the poor remain detached from worldly goods, trusting fully in Divine Providence, and selflessly sharing whatever little they possess to others in need. It talks about testing. It is necessary in order to reveal the true nature of every person. One has to look inside in order not to be blinded by the outward appearance and behavior of a person. But this should not discourage anyone from striving for holiness and perfection. In Jesus, there is always hope and certainty of victory — over sin and death. Where, O death is your sting?
Homily for Sunday, March 3 Where the section set for last week dealt with action towards others, now we seem to have something that is trying to reach deeper: to the wellspring of action found in the human heart. Get the heart — the fundamental attitude — right, Jesus seems to be saying, and all else will follow. The opening commands not to judge and not to condemn are already bound up with this. They raise the issue of just how difficult it is for people to have the kind of understanding that would really allow them to make judgments of others. Yet, even with such impediment, we are still so confident that we can see and set about rooting out the failings of others. If God, who really does see the heart, acts with such generosity, understanding and compassion, then that — not judgment and condemnation — should surely be the model for human interaction.
