23rd Sunday Ordinary

“Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”  There words were heard several weeks ago – but then they were addressed to Peter.  This time they are addressed to “the disciples”, the larger group, the church, to us. The homilist makes a distinction between the “teaching church” and the “learning church.”  But, he says, they are both us – we have both of these roles to play.
