Love Your Neighbor as Yourself

March 28, 2019

In today’s gospel, we heard a scribe ask Jesus which commandment was most important. Jesus replied: “The first is this: You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this:

You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” (Mark 12:28-34)

The two images I treasure most in working with young people are…

  • Seeing them stand in line to go to confession
  • Seeing them willingly and joyfully engaged in service to others – loving their neighbors as themselves.

The latter occurred last Friday as part of our school-wide Community Service Day. We sent 800 people out to serve 52 agencies throughout central Indiana. Kudos to Cathy Dolan and Carol Wagner for orchestrating this logistical beast!

Here is video that captures the spirit of the day:
