Pastor’s Notes Jesus continues His Sermon on the Mount with two more antitheses: “You have heard that it was said, An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. But I say to you…turn the other cheek..” and “You have heard that it was said, You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy. But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.” These are two of Jesus’ most popular precepts and He gives them to His disciples to address a common misuse of the Mosaic Law. The idea behind “an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth” was not to require vengeance but to set a limit on what sort of retribution was permitted. Unfortunately, many used that phrase to justify all sorts of vengeful acts especially when it came to dealing with the hated Romans. Jesus wants His disciples to understand that answering violence with more violence is never a good thing. Instead He counsels that it is preferable to show aggressors that they have no real power over those they seek to control. “Turning the other cheek” is not a passive, cowardly response but is actually a way of standing up to those who seek to exert power and showing them that they actually have no power. That is the whole of idea of going the extra mile. Jesus’ true disciple is saying to the aggressor “you are not forcing me to do anything that I am not willing to do on my own. God is the only one who has any real power and that is over both of us.” The radical use of non-violence is to make the aggressors see that what they are doing is useless, stupid, and in the long run, wrong. Similarly, Jesus addresses those who try to make a corollary to the precept “You shall love your neighbor as yourself” by saying that that command implies hatred for enemies. Jesus in effect makes it clear that one’s enemies are still one’s neighbors even though they may not be acting like it. Just because someone puts themselves in opposition to you or maybe even harms you does not give you the right to hate them and will evil for them. Instead, we are still obligated to will the good for them and even pray for them. Jesus underscores this by telling us that in loving our enemies, we are imitating the Father who always wills the good for all His creatures, even those who disobey Him. Thus, Jesus is calling us who dare to call ourselves His disciples to imitate God in all things. As God is a God of mercy, we must be merciful. As God is God of forgiveness, we must be always ready to forgive. As God is a God of love, we must love in all situations even when that love is met with anger, hatred, and persecutions. That is what it means to live the Beatitudes which promise us not instant gratification, but eternal happiness.

FEBRUARY 19, 2017_________ DIVINE WISDOM

The Lord’s message, through Moses, was to “take no revenge and cherish no grudge . . . love your neighbor as yourself” (Leviticus 19:18). We might think, “Great in theory, but not always realistic!” Then Jesus in today’s Gospel goes even further. Take a slap in the face and then turn the other cheek? Treat enemies the same as friends? Again, we’re tempted to think that those are nice ideals, but not very practical in the “real world.” Paul echoes Jesus when he tells the Corinthians that what passes for human wisdom is absurdity to God. Divine wisdom casts sunshine on the good and the bad, showers rain on the honest and the dishonest—without distinction. We must examine our wisdom and common sense to see how they compare to the wisdom of God, and make adjustments accordingly. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co., Inc.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION In brushing up for “Catholic Jeopardy,” it might help to know that there is only one feast on the calendar for a thing, rather than a person or mystery. It’s for a chair: Saint Peter’s chair in fact After the Resurrection, there can be no doubt that the disciples reserved a special place for Simon Peter in the upper room. Later, Peter became the bishop of Antioch in today’s Syria, the place where we were first called “Christians.” From there, he went to Rome, the center of the Empire, where it is said that Peter sat in a chair in the house of Priscilla and Aquila to instruct his flock. Jesus, in entrusting the keys of the Kingdom to Peter and his successors, entrusted his compassion and mercy to them, and charged them with pointing to the Kingdom of God. Compassion and mercy are to resonate through their teaching. Since the ancient sign of a teacher is the chair (“disciple” literally means one who sits at the feet of a teacher), Peter’s chair has long been treasured. Today there is a symbolic shrine of Peter’s chair above the main altar of St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. This monument is the last work of Bernini, a huge bronze throne supported by four doctors of the Church: Augustine and Ambrose from the Western Church, and Chrysostom and Athanasius from the East. High above it is the alabaster window of the descent of the Holy Spirit. —Rev. James Field, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.
