23rd Sunday In Ordinary Time - Year A

This week’s gospel provides us with a lesson that could be well heeded in our
contemporary world. Matthew relates a discourse on dealing with a grievance or
sin between two ‘brothers’ – community members; fellow disciples. Matthew
advises his audience that the first step is to try to resolve the matter privately
between the offender and the one offended. This is a practice that seems to have
almost disappeared today. When one person feels offended or hurt by another, it
seems the last thing they do is to go and speak to the person, confront them with
the hurt and try to resolve it.
