About Today Readings

30th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Exodus 22:20-26. I love you, Lord, my strength – Psalm 17(18):2-4, 47, 51. 1 Thessalonians 1:5-10. Matthew 22:34-40.

Let us love with everything in us

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. (Matthew 22:37-38)

We often hear that we should love our neighbor as ourself, but how often our we reminded to love the Lord with all our heart, with all our soul, and with all our mind ­– this being the greatest commandment? What does it mean to love God with every cell in my being? How would I change if I loved the Lord with everything I am? How would I love others if I put loving God first? How would this change how I loved others?

Lord, let us learn to love with everything in us as you have commanded. Give us the patience, strength, courage to love others as we want to be loved.
