Gospel text (Mt 5,17-19): Jesus said to his disciples, «Do not think that I have come to remove the Law and the Prophets. I have not come to remove but to fulfill them». Jesus said to his disciples, «Do not think that I have come to remove the Law and the Prophets. I have not come to remove but to fulfill them. I tell you this: as long as heaven and earth last, not the smallest letter or stroke of the Law will change until all is fulfilled. So then, whoever breaks the least important of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be the least in the kingdom of heaven. On the other hand, whoever obeys them and teaches others to do the same will be great in the kingdom of heaven».

Today Jesus defends Himself... The Lord has been healing those sick on Saturdays, has been eating with publicans, has rejected the divorce... and they accuse Him of ignoring Moses’ law. The world is upside down! But Jesus Christ defends Himself... and asks us to love as He does, and avoid the hypocrisy of some Pharisees (they abode by many precepts, but their hearts were "dry").

—Jesus’ words are not theoretic. Christ fully complies with the Law of God by dying on the Cross for us. Let us join Him!
