2. Special Character Week 2 Term 4 2020

 Fakaalofa lahi atu ki a mutolu oti- Greetings to you all. Happy Niuean Language Week.

Gospel Reflection

Jesus put an exclamation on this thread in the Gospel found in Matthew.  While He responded to the Pharisees’ question that the greatest commandment is to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul and mind, Jesus went on to emphasise the second commandment that “you shall love your neighbor as yourself”. 

He also noted that “the whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments.” All those in each of our lives represent the “neighbours” that Jesus was talking about.  The simple truth is that we have a holy obligation to respond with love and compassion to those God has placed in our lives. 

Dear Heavenly Father,  Your truth is so clearly revealed to us throughout Your Holy Word. As we seek to live out our lives for You, help us to stay focused upon You - first and foremost - and then to use your love and compassion as the example for us to maintain a singular focus upon the needs of others.     
In the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ.

Faith Facts Term 4
Week 2 19th - 23rd Oct
22nd St John Paul II

 “Genuine love … is demanding. But its beauty lies precisely in the demands it makes. Only those able to make demands on themselves in the name of love can then demand love from others.”

“The future is in your hearts and in your hands. God is entrusting to you the task, at once difficult and uplifting, of working with Him in the building of the civilization of love.

Thank you
God Bless
