Love, the Hinges on the Small Gate that Leads to Eternal Life

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and…your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.  This was not just radical because of its decree to love but also because up to that time Jews had to adhere to 613 commandments. Our Lord distilled them down to two: love God and love your neighbour as yourself. Love is all you need.”

Shall and Will

“Recalling the biblical passage helps me remember that my part of the bargain is to seek and that God will provide what I need. I also should remember that God’s imagination is greater than mine and that God might have something better in store for me than what I am seeking. This was the case with this opportunity, and it came from an unexpected place, not at all where I was looking.”

Virtual Priest?

“I have read the suggestion that perhaps we are in a time of communion fasting. That our loneliness, our physical distancing and  no touching is sacrificial. That the real worship of our time is to embrace the poor, literally feed the hungry Body of Christ. Give our own blood.”
