Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time  

Years ago, I received an anonymous note which read, “Jesus did not preach fear, he preached love!” I fully agree that Jesus always preached love, love was the primary motive for all He said and did, yet I must disagree with the assertion that he did not preach fear. Sometimes preaching love entails preaching fear – just ask any mother or father who, in love, must discipline their children! 

Consider this week’s Gospel:
