Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time – October 29, 2017

Gospel Reading: Matthew 22:34-40

“[Jesus] 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.’”

Catholic school communities would do well to remind our students that when we place our love for God first, everything else falls into place. It is far easier to love our neighbor when we love God foremost.

In what ways do you lead your students to an awareness of God’s love for them?
