Thursday of the Ninth Week in Ordinary Time (2013)

Ephesians 3:17-19I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge - that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Prayer ...
Heavenly Father, help us to know in our soul the love that is greater than words and knowledge so that we may not only be like you, but that we may know you in experience just as we know you in faith. Through Infant Jesus we pray. Amen.

Scripture: Mark 12:28-34
28And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, "Which commandment is the first of all?" 29 Jesus answered, "The first is, `Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one; 30 and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.' 31 The second is this, `You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these." 32 And the scribe said to him, "You are right, Teacher; you have truly said that he is one, and there is no other but he; 33 and to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the strength, and to love one's neighbor as oneself, is much more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices." 34 And when Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, "You are not far from the kingdom of God." And after that no one dared to ask him any question.
Meditation on Today's Scripture:
God loved us first and our love for him is a reply to his exceeding grace and kindness towards us. The love of God comes first and the love of neighbor is resolutely grounded in the love of God. The more we know of God's love and truth the more we love what he loves and refuse what is hateful and contrary to his will. What makes our love for God and his commands grow in us? Faith in God and hope in his promises makes stronger us in the love of God. They are essential for a good association with God, for being united with him. The more we know of God the more we love him and the more we love him the better we believe and hope in his promises. The Lord, through the gift of the Holy Spirit, gives us a new liberty to love as he loves. Do we allow anything to keep you from the love of God and the joy of helping others with a generous heart?
