Job 34-36; Galatians 5

Galatians 5:14 For the whole law is fulfilled in one statement, namely “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

And you cannot fulfill this law if you don’t love God, for the love of neighbor flows from that love of the Divine.  And the love of the Divine flows from prayer, the study of Scripture, and the sacraments. We pilgrims wend our way through a culture that is bereft of this love.  A prayer of St. Francis de Sales:

O my God:

Henceforth I resolve to strive earnestly to be patient and gentle, and not to allow the waters of contradiction to extinguish the fire of that charity which I owe to my neighbor. 

Amen.
