My Dear Parish Family,
In creating us, God invites us to participate in the work of creation by embracing God’s spirit of love. In today’s Gospel, Jesus lifts up such love as the center of the kingdom of God. Devotion to God is not genuine unless it includes love for neighbor; commitment to others is incomplete without recognition of God as the source of all love. It is in the compassion and kindness extended to others that our humanity most resembles God; it is in the respect and honor in which we hold others that we most praise the God of love; it is in acts of charity and selflessness that we mirror the love of God in our midst. In the twofold “Great Commandment” we discover a purpose to our lives much greater and larger than ourselves and our own needs, interests, prejudices, and biases. In loving God in one another, we find the ultimate meaning and purpose of the gifts of faith and life.
In Christ’s Peace,
