… depend on these two commandments

October 29, 2017 6:00 am

“You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.  The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments.” (MT 22: 37-40) 

When God is in His right place, everything else falls into its right place. Only when “all our hearts” are given to God, we are able to “love our neighbors as ourselves;” otherwise, we will look at what is good only for us.

“Whoever loves me will keep my word, says the Lord, and my Father will love him and we will come to him.” (Gospel Acclamation)
