30th SUNDAY (A) October 29, 2017

Exodus 22: 20-26; Psalm 18; I Thessalonians 1: 5c-10; Matthew 22: 34-40

by Jude Siciliano, OP

Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

From today’s Gospel reading:

Jesus said... "You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart,

with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment.

The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself."


One place we try to fulfill Jesus’ commandment of love is at our weekly liturgical celebration. We look for ways at this worship to concretize the love of neighbor. Here, we welcome the stranger in our midst and strive to be a sign of the unity the Eucharist calls us to be. In our parish we must integrate incoming groups into our liturgical and community celebrations and educational programs.

So we ask ourselves:

  • Is God at my center, the inspiration and impetus behind my thoughts, feelings and actions?
  • Who is the surprising neighbor Jesus is calling me to love?
  • And how shall I share Jesus’ love with that person(s)?
