Homilies: 6th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year A

My homily for the 6th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year A) as preached during the 9.30 am Mass in Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton.

The readings proclaimed were Sirach 15:15-20; 1 Corinthians 2:6-10; Matthew 5:17-37.

“True righteousness before God is not measured by the external observance of God’s laws and teachings, but of allowing the laws and teachings to transform us at our very core. Only when we allow ourselves to be converted in our hearts has the law and the prophets been fulfilled.”
