A Weekly Reflection

October 25 & 26, 2014 

In today’s gospel the Pharisee was talking about commandments (Something we are forced to obey by external pressure) and Jesus was talking about love (an internal exhortation to give our heart, soul and mind to another).  One demands allegiance, the other requires personal commitment. In our families, we daily lay down our lives for each other not because we ‘gotta’ but because love compels us.
