Hosea 14:2-10; Mark 12:28-34

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
With all your soul,
With all your mind,
And with all your strength.”

In my busy multi-tasking life, how frequently do I do the above?

Do I let other worldly concerns prioritize my energy?

“You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

Who is my neighbor?

Do I love myself?

“And to love him with all your heart
With all your understanding,
With all your strength,
And to love your neighbor as yourself
is worth more than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.”

Do I engage in  21st century parallels of ritualistic burnt offerings and sacrifices?

Do I love Him, my neighbor, and myself with all my understanding and strength?

“And when Jesus saw that he answered with understanding…”

Do I respond as the scribe did, i.e., with understanding?

Do I practice these two great commandments?

* Our Way of Life *


"Our diverse talents and abilities, our differences in culture, nationality and age are assets for the richness of the community. Although we may be engaged in a variety of ministries, we all share the common call to apostolic discipleship in a community of the Catholic Apostolate of St. Vincent Pallotti."(OWL, 91)



"Christ, the Apostle of the Eternal Father, and his mission are central to our personal and community life, giving meaning and direction to our thinking, our spirituality, our prayer, action and suffering." (OWL, 19)



"As a community of disciples we are gathered around Jesus, the Apostle of the Eternal Father. Like the first disciples, we want to be with Jesus, be sent out by him and return to him to evaluate our service in the light of his presence." (OWL, 88)



"As Pallottines, it is our special charism to foster growth in faith and love among the laity, to awaken them to awareness of their apostolic call, and to cooperate with them in furthering the apostolic mission." (OWL, 21)



"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
