23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time (Mt 18:15-20)
Today’s Gospel gives us the guidelines to follow as believers when faced with a bad performance: fraternal correction and FORGIVENESS. Yet how difficult it is for us to forgive and to open up “spaces for reconciliation”. Even so, we must choose to practice fraternal correction within our homes: knowing how to do it and knowing how to receive it. And also to forgive and ask for forgiveness.
On the other hand, it reminds us that community prayer – in our case, FAMILY prayer – directed to the Father, guarantees the presence of Jesus and the achievement of what is requested.
Proposal to take care of the family this week:
Find a space – perhaps in an atmosphere of prayer – to carry out a healthy exercise of fraternal correction of one another.
