The breath and scope of love that makes us a holy people brings these readings together. There are opportunities to deepen our understanding of evangelization in these readings. A lingering question for many will continue to be the distinction between the Law and the spirit of the Law. This filters down to the minutiae of being Church, eg., the old “fish on Friday” issue or how many angels can dance on a pin. Perhaps a review of the different “weight” that different kinds of Church documents have an effect on shaping our discipleship is in order. Behind all this, is the very important work of holiness so that we are indeed temples of the Spirit.
