Dying to be Above the Law

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:36-40

Let us pray . . .

R Lord, by knowing your love, let us give your love!

You loved us while we were yet sinners:
- Teach us to love those whom we often despise, reject & judge. R

You taught us endless, unfailing love through your death on the cross:
- Show us how to take up our own cross and follow you into the hearts of the unlovable. R

You gave us new life when we were dead to sin:
- Teach us to lay our lives on the line for the poor, the homeless, the sick and the dying. R

"Love does no evil to one’s neighbor; therefore, love is the fulfillment of the law." Romans 13:10

O God, because of your endless love and mercy, you sent your own Son to live among us and to die for us when we were trapped in the ways of sin and death. Through this Lenten season of fasting and praying, set us free from our selfish ways and to live your law of love as disciples of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
