“I give you a new commandment: love one another.”

“I give you a new commandment: love one another.”

The gospel speaks the familiar words about loving one another.  In fact, everything in the Scriptures, everything in our tradition, comes down to this: love God with all your heart, soul and mind, and love your neighbor as yourself.

There are a thousand ways to say that, and a hundred thousand ways to live that out.

Our faith addresses the relationship that we have with God.  It also refers to the relationships we have with others. To love God with all your heart and your neighbor as yourself requires a commitment and a way of life for a lifetime.  It’s that complex…and it’s that simple.

Jesus calls the Church into existence with love and the identifying feature of the Church in the world is love shared among its members.

When we accept the responsibility to take care of our parish and the community, God is pleased and sure of our love for him.  There is no other way to keep this commandment other than good stewardship.

We continuously renew stewardship at the parish.  Every month the Outreach/Social Justice Committee presents to you one of the many opportunities to serve so that you can uniquely experience what it is to “love one another”.  This month of May it is Million Meal Event.  Please check the bulletin and for how you can help.
