Attending to Law. Both civil and Church law give us standards to guide our thought and behaviors. Outward acts help us attend to inner treasures. We need help for interpreting law rightly so that external actions reflect a right and merciful heart. That is why the Penitential Act is made early in Mass before gifts and selves are brought to the altar.
- How will I live in right relationship with God today?
- How will this spill over into right relationship with sisters and brothers (real and in the Lord)?
- How will my interpretation of God’s law be filled with mercy and loving-kindness?
