Loving the Lord, heeding his voice, and holding fast to him

“Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live, by loving the LORD, your God, heeding his voice, and holding fast to him. For that will mean life for you, a long life for you to live on the land that the LORD swore he would give to your fathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.” (DT 30: 19-20) 

These are three simple words and actions: “loving, heeding His voice and holding fast to Him.” This is all we need. When we love somebody, we naturally want to heed them, and it takes us closer to him or her. When we take our Bible with love to listen to Him, we can finish our prayer holding the Bible fast to our hearts. 

“Repent, says the Lord; the Kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Gospel Acclamation)
