Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Michelangelo’s “Moses”(detail)
  • God wants us to become the sort of persons who are ready for eternal life and happiness with Him, and the angels, and all the saved in heaven. 
  • Human freedom is essential for us to become that sort of person—how we respond to everything and what we do. 
  • We become this sort of person by love of God and neighbor.
