These two commandments

August 21, 2020 3:00 am

“‘Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?’ He said to him, ‘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: 36-40)

The whole Universe is based on “these two commandments,” which have the same component: “you shall love.” There is nothing more important than love. Whatever we do or think is important and has a meaning when is based on love. We can express our love in different ways, we can use different tools or signs, but the essence will be always the same.

“Teach me your paths, my God, guide me in your truth.” (Gospel Acclamation)
