A friend gifted me with the Word on Fire Bible/The Gospels which I have found to be very nice.  As I was reading a reflection in it (“Unpacking Jesus’ Greatest Sermon”) by Bishop Robert Barron, I was caught in his commentary on the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5). 

In describing the people of Israel, Bishop Barron said that “Israel knew itself to be the people with the definite mission to become holy and thereby to render the world holy.  But instead, Israel fell into greater and greater sins; and instead of being the catalyst for the conversion of the world, the world was continually overwhelming and enslaving Israel.”
