Today’s liturgy is on fraternal correction and the needs to reconcile with our brothers and sisters who are not in good terms with us. How should a Christian community go about conflict resolutions and correcting the sinner?
In the gospel, Jesus gives us the principles of reconciliation. This means that conflicts are inevitable, they must come. They are inevitable in relationships, in families, and in communities. However, the question is how do we resolve them amicably?
Hence, Christ recommended a three-dimensional practical step of reconciliation. First, we must sit down and dialogue. Then, seek the mediation of a good friend, and finally, seek the mediation of our community or family. As Christians, how do we resolve our problems today?
