Law As Disciplinarian
Homily Law does not give us the strength and the grace to fulfill the commandments.
1. The Law was given to us as a disciplinarian before the coming of Jesus Christ but it does not give us the strength and the grace to fulfill the commandments.
God wrote on the tables of the Law what men did not read in their hearts. – St. Augustine
“The Law is holy, spiritual and good, yet still imperfect. Like a tutor it shows what must be done, but does not of itself give the strength, the grace of the Spirit, to fulfill it.” –
