This reflection is based on Matthew 22:34-40.
I know what you’re thinking. It’s what I’m thinking too: These are two impossible commandments the Lord gives us.
When our Lord is asked in the Gospel about the single greatest commandment, he gives not one but two answers. He says: “You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.”
And as though that’s not hard enough, Jesus adds: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
