“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Romans 13:9-10

TODAY’S WORD…

.

The commandments,

“Do not commit adultery;

do not commit murder;

do not steal;

do not desire what belongs to someone else”

– all these, and any others besides, are summed up in the one command,

“Love your neighbour as you love yourself.”

.

If you love others, you will never do them wrong;

to love, then, is to obey the whole Law.

.

– Romans 13:9-10 (GNT)

.

REFLECTION…

.

When love motivates us

we readily give what is due – and more besides – to Him whom we love.

.

If we love God, we obey Him.

Love, therefore, is obeying God’s Commandments…all of them!

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

“Our motive in everything we do should be the Love of God,

which makes it easier for us to love our neighbour

and which purifies and raises all earthly loves on to a higher level […].

.

Charity, which is like a generous overflowing of justice,

demands first of all the fulfillment of one’s duty.

The way to start is to be just;

the next step is to do what is most equitable…;

but in order to love, great refinement is required,

and much thoughtfulness, and respect, and kindliness."

.

– St. Josemaria Escriva

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…
