Correct each other.
Reading 3, 1 Jn 2: 7-11 : Those who hate the brother dwells in darkness
|7 ||Beloved, I am writing you no new commandment, but an old commandment which you had from the beginning; the old commandment is the word which you have heard. |
|8 ||Yet I am writing you a new commandment, which is true in him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true light is already shining. |
|9 ||He who says he is in the light and hates his brother is in the darkness still. |
|10 ||He who loves his brother abides in the light, and in it there is no cause for stumbling. |
|11 ||But he who hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes. |
Gospel, Mt 18: 15-20 : Correct each other.
|15 ||"If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. |
|16 ||But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every word may be confirmed by the evidence of two or three witnesses. |
|17 ||If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector. |
|18 ||Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. |
|19 ||Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. |
|20 ||For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them." |
