Gospel Reading: MT 22:34-40

Jesus sums up his teachings, the entire wisdom of heaven in just two commandments emphasizing upon the love towards God and our neighbors. As simple and easy it may sound it is much more difficult to adhere to it. In a world where one finds it difficult to love one's own blood relations Jesus asks of a near impossibility in loving our neighbors as ourselves. Who are these neighbors he talks about? One would wonder. They are the people with whom we may have fought, or who would have hurt us or sinned against us.
 
The Gospel says that since the time of the giving of the Law through the prophets till the time of these words coming from Jesus, the son of God, the essence of heavenly love is embodied in these two. All the prophets who came kept on asking the people to repent and forgive and love each other, and this is what Jesus also emphasizes on today.
