Reflections on the Daily Readings
from the Perspective of Creighton Students
March 15th, 2014
One of the main themes of today’s readings was following the law of the Lord. We have all realized that both the law of the Lord is different than what our own human law is and also that following the law of the Lord is a demanding and persistent task. Unlike the law of the Lord, our human law is skewed and flawed: You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy (Mt 5:43). Fortunately, we have a fulfillment of our human law: Jesus. For “do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets: I have come not to abolish but to fulfill” (Mt 5:17). In short, Jesus fulfilled the laws by giving its ultimate interpretation in a divine way (CCC 581). If that was one of the missions of Jesus, what does that mean for me?
