30th Week in Ordinary Time 2020
25th –31st October.
Today’s Gospel reminds us that our faith is not just an abstract theory; it is a practical reality. Jesus brings together the two great commandments: the love of God is closely linked with love of neighbour. It is a religious duty to care for the poor and safeguard the vulnerable.
