Jesus said the second greatest commandment is to, “Love your neighbour as yourself”. (Matthew 22:39)
Do I love everyone or do I silently discriminate on the grounds of age, disability, wealth, genetic background, national origin, pregnancy, race/colour, religion, gender or sexual orientation? These are the primary reasons for hatred and anger!
Is it possible for me to claim that I love God but hate a neighbour?
Lord Jesus, grant me the grace to never again turn my back on You.
Prayer: Poor – Daily Service
Make us worthy, Lord,
to serve our brothers and sisters throughout the world,
who live and die in poverty and hunger.
Give them, through our hands,
this day their daily bread,
and by our understanding love,
give them peace and joy.
Make us, Lord,
worthy to serve our brothers and sisters,
scattered all over the world,
who live and die alone and poor.
Give them today, using our hands, their daily bread.
And, using our love, give them peace and happiness. Amen.
