Sunday Sermon and Other Stuff

26 Oct

“A new religion with only one commandment: Thou shalt not tell others how to live.”

― Marty Rubin

A Gloomy misty cloudy chilly Sunday here. But alas, I didn’t have to wake up early, and I was able to watch Mass on TV. I’m getting very spoiled and lazy. With my tea and cookie in hand, (bread and wine for the blessing) I was ready for the service.

Today’s Gospel was the story of another group trying to have Jesus incriminate Himself…

Gospel

MT 22:34-40

When the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees,

they gathered together, and one of them,

a scholar of the law tested him by asking,

“Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” 

He said to him,

“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.

The second is like it:

You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 

The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments.”

****************

My take on it… Well, this Gospel I’ve been agreeing with and professing forever. There really should be only two commandments. Love God, love your neighbor, all the others just refer to the first two. Actually, I wouldn’t even say “Love your neighbor as yourself,” because some people don’t love themselves. How about, love your neighbor better than yourself.

Well, the rest of my day was pretty quiet, peaceful, and lovely.

Happy Sunday, my friends. I love God, and I love you all.
