THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
30th Sunday of Year – 25th October 2020
These last few weeks we have been trying to update the parish Handbook. It has been very strange looking through all the various activities and groups that we have in the parish – most of which have ceased to operate since lockdown in March of this year. I could not help pondering why we have all these groups! But of course, the answer lies in today’s Gospel when Jesus reminds all of us that we are to love God and our neighbour. The whole purpose of the church is to enable us, strengthen us and ensure that we try to love God and our neighbour.
In Jesus’s day – there were over 600 laws that made up the totality of mosaic law, and if you violated one it effectively meant a violation of all of them! So, the question posed to Jesus is reasonable. For us today, we might think of something similar if we were to ask which is the most important teaching in the Catechism, or which is the most important rule of the Church. Perhaps a comparable question might be whether it is more important tender a sick relative or attend Mass? The answer side steps all these questions by saying the most important law is twofold – love God and love your neighbour.
So, to return to our Parish Handbook – yes, all our groups and activities in the parish are with us to help us embrace this twofold commandment. I hope and pray that soon we will return with our activities, so that as a Church we might more fully love God and our neighbour.
