Blast from the Past(or)

30th Sunday in Ordinary Time

 

                 What is the first and greatest Commandment of the law? Jesus clearly tells us through His answer to the sneaky lawyer today (ugh, lawyers.  Yuck.). You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind......The second is like it: you shall love your neighbor as yourself. In one fell-swoop, Jesus proclaims to the world the central command of the Talmud and the basis of the Jewish law. What is the greatest work we can do as a parish? Is it turning off the lights in the Church?  Closing and locking doors? Is it chasing skateboarders off the parish property? Is it yelling at motorists to please slow down on Birch Street (for crying out loud)?  Is it trying to find a boiler mechanic?  All of these things occupy parts of my week, but today's readings remind us of the ultimate purpose of our Faith and the meaning of our relationship with Jesus Christ. The three foundational tasks of the Church, as Pope Emeritus Benedict writes, are to worship God, to care for the poor and to teach and evangelize. Ah. That's perspective for you. When I'm struggling to sign a raffle license for a fundraiser or even speaking about Diocesan needs, it is good to be reminded of the reason for our Faith and the cause of our Joy. Let us love God with all our heart, mind and soul. And let us love our neighbor as ourselves.

 

 

God Bless you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
