Life is much more important than food, and the body much more important than clothes. Instead, be concerned with His Kingdom, and He will provide you with these things.
Luke 12:23,31

Sunday Gospel Message - 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Perhaps we look at The Commandments of God as a negative prohibition. However, if we think about it, how wonderful the world would be if everyone kept all of the Commandments! None of us would have to worry about anything! There would not be any more gossip or people getting hurt in any way. All of the Commandments can be summarized into the two great Commandments: Love God and love your neighbor as yourself. By the story of the Good Samaritan, Jesus tells us that everyone is our neighbor. Then Jesus commands us to treat others in the exact same way with mercy and kindness.
