Gospel text
Mt 22:34-40
“You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments.”
Gospel's Commentary
Today Jesus is tested and interrogated to see if he says something "new". And, surprise! what Jesus Christ says is innovative but not new. As Son of the Father, He raises the Law and the Prophets towards a new horizon; children of God! - God is not the "god" we invent. Jesus shows us God as a Father who begs love among his children and demands that we love each other as brothers.
