Dear Friend in the Lord,

Greatest Commandment: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims that the greatest of all the Commandments is “to love God with all our heart, soul and mind, and also our neighbours as ourselves.”  Ponder on, “Do we live this commandment faithfully, especially during the trials and tribulations of our lives?”

  Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 22:34-40

When the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees they got together and, to put him to the test, one of them put a further question, ‘Master, which is the greatest commandment of the Law?’

Jesus said to him, ‘You must 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 resembles it: You must love your neighbour as yourself. On these two commandments hang the whole Law, and the Prophets too.’
