greatest commandment

Standard

And to love him with all your heart,
with all your understanding,
with all your strength,
and to love your neighbor as yourself

is worth more than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.”  Gospel mk 12:28-34

     I guess the current battle between versus populum and ad orientem really isn’t all that important, and I guess it really isn’t all that important if one stands, sits kneels, and genuflects in the proper sequence. Latin with this simple saying looses much of its clout. If one is blind, or paralyzed, or deaf; chances are slim of fulfilling any of these tasks. Yet even a blind, deaf, cripple can love  God and neighbor with their whole heart and soul. Sometimes the greatest intellectual debates seem so trivial. Actions though often speak louder than words.
