“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Matthew 22:37-40




Jesus said,

‘“You shall love the Lord your God

with all your heart,

and with all your soul,

and with all your mind.”

This is the greatest and first commandment.

And a second is like it:

“You shall love your neighbour as yourself.”

On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”

– Matthew 22:37-40





The commandment of love is the most important commandment

because by obeying it we attain our own perfection.





“The more a soul loves, the more perfect is it in that which it loves.


Therefore this soul that is now perfect is wholly love, if it may thus be expressed,

and all its actions are love

and it employs all its faculties and possessions in loving,

giving all that it has … for this treasure of love which it has found hidden in God.”

– St. John of the Cross





With all my heart,

with all my soul,

with all my mind

I want to love You, O God.


With each beat of my heart,

with every yearning of my soul,

with all my intellect,

I want to worship You, my God.


Lord, help me love all others,

Remove my prejudices, my pride and arrogance,

because I know that what I do to others, I will be doing to You

– and I want to only love You, Lord.
