You shall love the Lord, your God, and your neighbor as yourself

From the Gospel according to Matthew 22:34-40

When the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together, and one of them, a scholar of the law tested him by asking:

“Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?”

He said to him:

“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. The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments.”

The gospel of the Lord.



We are not only made in God’s image, but everything in our lives finds its meaning in God. My marriage has completely changed as I now see it from a divine perspective. I have learned to venerate my spouse! Can there be a more profound transformation?


Applied to married life:

Ethan: The Lord has greatly blessed our marriage. He looks at us and reveals His mystery between us.

Helen: Everything changes when we look at it in alignment with God’s plans. Seeing you as a gift and support, allows me to partake in His love with every selfless act, making even the small things incredibly fruitful, embracing our role as parents…

Ethan: Everything becomes huge when we are born of the Spirit. Thank you, Lord.

Helen: Praise be to You.



That by embracing my husband and my family, I may welcome You; that by I giving myself to them, I may give myself to You. By loving them, I may love You. Mother of marital Love, pray for us. Amen.
