'If the offender refuses to listen even to the Church, let such a one be to you as a Gentile and a tax-collector.' 
Matthew 18.18

Reflection
Harsh sounding words from our Lord. But what was the attitude of Christ's Church to those whom Jewish society saw as irredeemable sinners? Was it not to try and bring them to repentance and offer them welcome?  So too must we try gently and persistently to open the ears of those who refuse to listen to Christ's Church.
