In today’s Gospel, Jesus takes the Ten Commandments to a deeper level. Instead of being written on tablets of stone, He wants them written on hearts of flesh. In other words, don’t just focus on the external actions, like murder and adultery, but examine what is in our hearts, like anger and lust. He wants us to take responsibility for our attitudes as well as our actions. But this is not always easy, especially to do on our own. So we need to open our hearts to the presence of the Holy Spirit. The gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit, from understanding, fortitude and piety to kindness, patience, gentleness and self-control, we can be transformed into people who don’t just live the Commandments, but love them as well.
