Dt 6:2-6/Heb 7:23-28/Mk 12:28b-34

We continue reading this week from St. Paul’s important Letter to the Romans. On Tuesday we read his timely teaching on creation. I wonder if St. Paul were writing to the Americans, or Chinese or Europeans today if, instead of the question of the law, which was bothering the Roman church then, he would devote his whole epistle to the importance of creation.

Saints Simon and Jude are the apostles we’re remember this month, on Thursday.

We’re reading from the Gospel of Luke along with Paul’s Letter to the Romans. Luke was a disciple of Paul, so he will emphasize some of Paul’s teachings in his gospel. For instance, the gospel is meant for everyone, the whole world. No one’s left out.
