Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time

This Sunday's Gospel has Jesus saying to his disciples: 
"Can a blind person guide a blind person? Will not both fall into a pit? No disciple is superior to the teacher; but when fully trained, every disciple will be like his teacher. Why do you notice the splinter in your brother's eye, but do not perceive the wooden beam in your own?"

Jesus tells us that we do not even notice the wooden beam in our own eye, yet we want to remove the splinter form another's eye. And Jesus goes on to say that every tree is know by its own fruit. "A good person our of the store of goodness in his heart produces good..."

That gives us plenty to reflect on today. Also, this coming Wednesday is Ash Wednesday and we need to think about how we will spend the season of Lent this year.
