THIRTIETH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
Matthew 22:34-40
Sometimes love asks us to put aside our own dreams for those we love in order to enable them to realize their own dreams; love can demand that we swallow our own disappointments and hurts in order to forgive, to support, to lift up; love can require us to check our own pain in order to alleviate another’s hurt. That is exactly the way God loves us: always ready to forgive and restore and welcome us back.
