Holy Humanity!!!

Leviticus 19:1-2 
“The Lord spoke to Moses, saying:
Speak to all the congregation of the people of Israel and say to them: You shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy.”

Matthew 25:36 (NRSV)
“I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me...And the king will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.”

The Catholic Church readings for today are Leviticus 19:1-2; 11-18 and Matthew 25:31-46. Leviticus, defining  holiness in terms of how we relate to one another, shows us God’s attitude towards humanity. Matthew shows us Jesus’ full identification with humanity, and gives us His point of judgement. Later, in Acts, Jesus will ask Paul-“Why are you persecuting me?” 

The question is-who will be humanity for us?
