Gospel: Matthew 5:17-19
“I have not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill.” (cf Matthew 5:17)
When Jesus said that he is to fulfill the law, he does not mean making a new list of commandments nor completing the list. He accompanies us to the fulfillment of the law by bringing us to the essence and end of all the commandments: to love God above all. Jesus desires that this greatest law – the law of love – be fulfilled in the life of each one. In this time of Lent, may our practice of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving lead us to love God above all.
