In Sunday’s Gospel Jesus says that there are two Commandments greater than the rest. The first is “Love God,” and the second is “Love your neighbor as you love yourself.” These two Commandments are actually one. If we truly love God, we love our neighbor. If we truly love our neighbor, we love God. Also, if we truly love God and our neighbor, we will keep all Ten Commandments. Jesus gave new meaning to these laws of love by living them to perfection.
COME TO MASS ON SUNDAY, KEEPING THE THIRD COMMANDMENT.
