Correct your neighbour only with honourable intentions

Today we are invited to reflect on Jesus’ recommendations on how to find someone who fail or gets lost.  Jesus says, “Your Father in heaven doesn’t want even one of these little ones to perish.” 
 
It is up to the shepherd, of course, to search for the sheep that is lost, wounded or at risk of falling into a deep and dark ravine.

Constant and generous self-sacrifice

Matthew wrote his gospel in a time of persecution. The disciples have often had the experience that, to remain faithful to Christ, they had to accept the breaking of ties with the people who matter most. The rabbis had made the decision to expel the Christians from the synagogues. They had ordered that those who adhered to the Christian faith be considered heretical, be disowned by their families.
