Gospel: Mark 12:28-34
“You are not far from the Kingdom of God.” (Mark 12:34)
Jesus affirms the understanding of the scribes on the greatest two commandments: to love God with all your heart, mind, and soul and to love your neighbor as yourself. The scribe is not far from the Kingdom not because he knows it in mind but because in his heart is a knowledge of an authentic love moving him – in little, concrete and practical ways – to love God with all his heart, mind , and soul and to love others as he loves himself.
Mother Mary, that is how you also love God. Help us to do the same for Him.
