Sunday, October 26, 2014 Today is the Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time. This week's Gospel follows last Sunday’s Gospel on the question of taxes. Today is the last of three questions put to Jesus by Jewish religious leaders, the Pharisees and Herodians, who were trying to trick him into saying something that might get him arrested. This reminds us that the context for today's reading is the mounting tension between Jesus and the religious leaders in Jerusalem. The Herodians and the Pharisees asked the first question, which was about taxes. The Sadducees asked the second question, which was about the Resurrection (see Matthew 22:22-33). The third question, considered in today's Gospel, is asked by a Pharisee who asks Jesus about the greatest of the commandments. The question requires Jesus to interpret the Law of Moses. The Mosaic Law consists of the Ten Commandments and many additional rules, numbering over six hundred. Adherence to the Mosaic Law, for a devout Jew, is an expression of faithfulness to God's covenant with Israel. The ranking of the Commandments was regularly debated among the teachers of the Law. Jesus answers the Pharisees' question with a two-fold summary. Jesus says that all of the commandments can be summarized in two commandments: love God and love your neighbor. Both of these were central elements of the religious tradition Jesus learned from his Jewish community. Indeed these continue to be central aspects of contemporary Jewish religious understanding. Jesus' response to his questioners proposed an integral connection between these two aspects of the Jewish Law. Love of God finds its expression in our love for our neighbor. Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam. Fr. Greg PS- As most of you know by now, ACS did really well to represent us in the community at the annual Havelock Chili Festival. ACS took first place for the chicken wings contest and Mary Bares took first place for the Red Chili competition- a first. ACS also sold over $4000 worth of lumpia. Congratulations! And again a big thank you to all who helped out or participated in helping ACS be successful in the Chili Festival. Looking forward to next year. Thanks.    Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam. Fr.
