In the Gospel of Luke, it talked about how we should focus on helping ourselves first, and not pick out other people's imperfections. It stated that the boy was telling his brother that he had a stick in his eye while the boy himself had a beam in his. This is an example of what not to do, and to be a person who sees with the eyes of Jesus. - Peyton
Father Tim talked about how sight doesn't only come from your eyes and Father uses a baby kitten as an example that they also see through their heart. Father also talked about our personal fault and the brother with a wooden beam in his eye. Lastly, he also said be a person who sees through Jesus' eye. - Braidyn
In today's Homily, Father Tim talked about dealing with our problems before we judge other people. He talked about newborn kittens who are blind at first and need help finding their mother. He uses that scenario to talk about today's Gospel. If you see a splinter in someone's eye and have a wooden beam in your own, do not try to take the splinter in the other person's eye. First, you remove the beam in your eye then take out the splinter in the other person's eye. This means that you shouldn't judge people before judging yourself. First, figure out your problem then help the other person. - Aaliyah
Father Tim spoke about how you need to fix yourself before others. Do not judge people based on their faults because you are not perfect. Help yourself so it is easier to help others, like it is easier to help out a friend with the homework if you had done it first. Love ourselves then others. Try to see through the eyes of Jesus and focus on you before anyone else. -Nathaniel
