Father Louis Maximilian takes two points from today's Gospel. First is the need for good example, both to ourselves (i.e. a sincere and consistent life) and to others. If we don't have this, not only will we not sweeten the message of the Gospel with our deeds, but we will embitter it. Second is how to react to bad example, especially by those in authority over us.  We are not excused from living the faith, rather we can look to the teaching of the Holy Father as a dependable guide even in murky times. We also must not be quick to condemn, but seek first the Kingdom of God, even if it feels like we are alone. Let us imitate the Blessed Virgin, ponder the Word of God, and be docile to the inspirations of the Spirit. Ave Maria!
