FROM OUR EDITORS—July 10, 2022 – 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Para la versión en español, haga clic aquí.

The First Reading and Gospel for this 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time talk about God’s commandments. We hear Jesus’ Parable of the Good Samaritan in Luke’s Gospel. He tells us that we must love God and our neighbor to inherit eternal life. The last sentence from the First Reading caught my attention in a special way. It says that God’s law is something very near to us, already in our mouths and hearts; we only have to carry it out.

Sometimes carrying out God’s commandments may feel like an impossible task, something that only saints and holy people can do. But Our Heavenly Father knows us well and understands our limitations, so much that he puts his law in our hearts for us to follow. It is not something that we have to go far to receive or understand. God’s law lives in us already; we just have to comply with it.

May we be open to carry out the law of love that God has put in our hearts, so we may live according to his will, giving glory to Jesus Christ his Son. Amen.

    The reason we sometimes do not comply with God’s laws is because they are in contradiction to the world’s. That is why we need the first commandment to take hold of us. To love God above all, to avoid all evils.
