with all your heart, being, strength and your mind

“‘You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your being, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.’ He replied to him, ‘You have answered correctly; do this and you will live.’” (Luke 10: 26

“With all our…” means—everything. God, who is our Creator, deserves to receive all from us, not just fragments. It is about love, and love is human, total, faithful and exclusive, together with fruitful. The more we give, the more we are because our identity is in giving ourselves, and we “cannot fully find ourselves except through a sincere gift of self (GS 24).”

“I give you a new commandment: love one another as I have loved you.” (Gospel Acclamation)
