The love of neighbour which Jesus speaks of is a controversial love. It involves a love of people we don’t know or like.
It is a radical love of those that society wants to dismiss: love of the migrant, love of the homeless family, love of the drug addict, love ofthe prisoner, love of the climate. Love God and Love Neighbour,
the prisoner, love of the earth, love of the climate.
It sounds so simple yet these are the toughest, most radical lines in the Gospel. It sounds like two commandments and yet they are one, interconnected and inseparable, for to love God we must love our neighbour. And by loving our neighbour we are0 loving God. Today let us all ask ourselves how we can live more fully this great commandment and be a shining example of Christ’s love in the world. Jane Mellett
