Lent ……. Day Twenty-Four

Lent ……. Day Twenty-Four

“How I love this new commandment since it gives me the assurance that Your will is to love in me all those You command me to love.!” (Story of a Soul, 221)
St. Therese of Lisieux

Matthew 22:  34 But when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sad′ducees, they came together. 35 And one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question, to test him. 36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?” 37 And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments depend all the law and the prophets.”
BAM!!

Do you think Jesus did a little victory dance like a NFL player does when they score or a little poppin’ of his tunic.    Probably not.    But He got in the last word.  God usually does.

We are called to love the Lord our God with all our hearts and soul and mind.   Then we are called to love our neighbors.  Jesus gave us a one-two punch of love!   Bam!
