Memorial, St. Ignatius of Antioch, bishop & martyr
Wednesday 28th Week in Ordinary Time - Year I

ROMANS 2:1-11
You, O man, are without excuse, every one of you who passes judgment.
For by the standard by which you judge another you condemn yourself,
since you, the judge, do the very same things. We know that the
judgment of God on those who do such things is true. Do you suppose,
then, you who judge those who engage in such things and yet do them
yourself, that you will escape the judgment of God? Or do you hold his
priceless kindness, forbearance, and patience in low esteem, unaware
that the kindness of God would lead you to repentance? By your
stubbornness and impenitent heart, you are storing up wrath for
yourself for the day of wrath and revelation of the just judgment of
God, who will repay everyone according to his works, eternal life to
those who seek glory, honor, and immortality through perseverance in
good works, but wrath and fury to those who selfishly disobey the
truth and obey wickedness. Yes, affliction and distress will come upon
everyone who does evil, Jew first and then Greek. But there will be
glory, honor, and peace for everyone who does good, Jew first and then
Greek. There is no partiality with God.

LUKE 11:42-46
The Lord said: "Woe to you Pharisees! You pay tithes of mint and of
rue and of every garden herb, but you pay no attention to judgment and
to love for God. These you should have done, without overlooking the
others. Woe to you Pharisees! You love the seat of honor in synagogues
and greetings in marketplaces. Woe to you! You are like unseen graves
over which people unknowingly walk." Then one of the scholars of the
law said to him in reply, "Teacher, by saying this you are insulting
us too." And he said, "Woe also to you scholars of the law! You impose
on people burdens hard to carry, but you yourselves do not lift one
finger to touch them."

Jesus gives us no wonderful answers in the Gospel today. He only
confronts and condemns the darkness. Perhaps we need to examine
ourselves, not an examination of externals, but of internals. Examine
our hearts. Is our heart in darkness? Are our religious practices only
a frantic and frightened attempt to ignore this inner darkness? Do we
try to evangelize others through this ritual when through it we
ourselves have yet to really experience the good news of Jesus Christ.

If we are not wealthy, we cannot give our children money. We cannot
share what we do not have. In the same way, if we do not have a deep
and solid faith, we cannot share it with others.
