Love that Moves the Stars

April 15th, 2009 by Adam G.

Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
This is the first and great acommandment.
And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Thus Christ’s summary of the Mosaic law.

But Christ came to fulfill the law. He gave a new commandment:

As I have loved you, love one another.

Loving our neighbors the way we love ourselves is no longer enough. We must love our neighbors with the love that Christ has–swift, implacable, the love that moves the stars.
