It’s the Weekly Update https://bit.ly/HangingOutatOLM — Jonathan Roumie, Prayer Ministry, and An eventful upcoming week! We hope to see you at any of these gatherings @ OLM!
Love the Lord with All Your Heart
What do we love the most? Our health? Our career? Our reputation or status online?
Where is our love directed? Christian writer and former atheist C.S. Lewis wrote that we need to, “Put first things first and we get second things thrown in: put second things first & we lose both first and second things.”
The message of our Gospel echoes this message as well as the words of Moses from our First Reading this weekend:
“Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD alone!
Therefore, you shall love the LORD, your God,
with all your heart,
and with all your soul,
and with all your strength.” (Deuteronomy 6)
What’s more, Jesus challenges His followers to also, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Mark 12). When we love rightly, all other activities fall into place and we must prepare ourselves for the eternal life to come.
To prepare our hearts before we go to Holy Mass this weekend and to get a glimpse of how Catholics understand “The Last Things” watch the short video from poet, actor, and friend of Word on Fire Jonathan Roumie who plays Jesus in ‘The Chosen’ series in the Flocknote email.
We look forward to seeing you at any of the Holy Mass times this weekend where the presider of each Mass will be preaching, or stop by to visit Jesus at the Blessed Sacrament Chapel or at daily Mass during the week.
And praise God, Father Don is safely back from his cross-country road trip with Chardonnay!
