Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time

The Collect for this Sunday's Liturgy is worth praying over:
"O God, who teach us that you abide in hearts that are just and true, grant that we may be so fashioned by your grace as to become a dwelling pleasing to you.

The Liturgy speaks of the commandments of God and I love this thought from the reflection by Lewis B. Smedes:

"Having affirmed the commandments, however, Jesus demonstrated that their purpose was to point the way to a loving community....the commandments are signals of the life of constructive joy; they aim at our welfare and happiness."

I would like to underline "constructive joy"!
