The Mirror

The rear and side view mirrors of a car keep us safe.  Teens are frequent visitors to the mirror. Doctors sometimes use mirrors to examine a hard to see part of our insides.  The mirror of history gives us perspective on where we have been and how we got here.  A mirror can be a spiritual help. Fr Greg Boyle, S.J, who works with reforming drug addicts, suggests that standards don’t get us very far;  he asks his clients to look in a mirror and ask: is this how the loving God created you? In both the Book of Leviticus and in Matthew’s Gospel, God sets pretty high expectations: “You shall not bear hatred…cherish no grudge.”  Jesus reminds us to “Turn the other cheek as well.”   St. Paul sets us a mirror for us: “Do you not know that you are the temple of and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?”  After we have looked into the mirror and searched God’ Word for some expectations, we will be ready for joy and peace. This conviction is based on the words of the psalm: “The Lord is kind and merciful.”


Dear Parishioners,
