Hosea 14:2-10, Ps 81, Mark 12:28-34

Love the one you meet

Augustine said, “Do you want to love your neighbour? You have him in Christ, ‘for the Word was made flesh’”.

Love is an act of will. We are called to love those we do not know but encounter ... on the street, on the bus, in the news. Each encounter with another is a meeting with the divine. Just imagine each day hearing Jesus, sitting next to Jesus, smiling at Jesus ... embodied in everyone I meet.

Let us do what John of the Cross says, “Where there is no love, put love and you will find love.”
