Commentary on the Gospel of

Fr. JCR Garcia Paredes


Every word of the gospel is addressed to every Christian without distinction; to the one who proclaims it, as much as to the ones who hear it proclaimed.  It is “alive and active, sharper than any two-edged sword” (Heb 4:12).  It can never be used, though it has often been used, by one person against another.  It is not a dead instrument to be brandished at will; it is alive with a life of its own.  The preacher cannot say, “You sinners…” but “We sinners…” because one edge of that sword is always turned towards the speaker
