"My brothers and sisters, show no partiality as you
adhere to the faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ". These words from the second reading prompt a
reflection upon its application (or lack thereof) in our
Catholic way of life.

Father, God, you are Love! Guide us, as you guide creation, according to your law of love. May we love you with all our hearts and love other as you love them. As we love one another, help us attain that justice which is the expression of your law of love and thereby come to the fullness of love in the eternal life prepared for us from the beginning of time through Christ our Lord. Amen.
