FOCUS: "You shall love the Lord, your God, and you shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no greater commandment than these." This is the essence of Christianity.

REFLECTION: The essential mood of the penitent is this: ÔIn the way Thou knowest, O Lord, save me. For my part I will labor without hypocrisy, without deviation and misinterpretation, but according a pure conscience, doing everything that I understand and that lies in my power.' Whoever can truly feel this in his heart, is accepted by the Lord, who then comes to rule as king within him. God is his teacher, God

it is who prays in him, God it is who bears fruit in him. God is his ruler. Such a state is the seed and the heart of the heavenly tree of life within him.   Theophane the Recluse

 

Thou shalt love the Lord thy God

APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY:

Introduction to the Liturgy: Loving God is fulfilled by loving others. Love of God and neighbor are the greatest of all commandments, and the Way to immortality.

Sample General Intercessions:

Introduction: My sisters and brothers, God our Father wants all humankind to be saved. Let us pray to God with all our hearts:

¥ For the holy Church of God: that the Lord guide and protect it,

¥ For peace among nations, that God may rid the world of violence, and let us serve him in freedom;

¥ For all our brothers and sisters in need, that through us, the Lord will assist them;

¥ For all of us gathered here, that God will teach us to use wisely the good things he has given us, that they will lead us closer to him and to the eternal blessings he promises.

Preface: Fifth for Sundays in Ordinary Time

Concluding Rite:

Prayers over the People: Second

 

Faith Formation

Because of the great love bestowed on us by God, we must respond to Him with love.

¥ In what ways do we love God?
