Fri. [G]ospel [P]rayer [S]tudy - "worth more than all burnt offerings and sacrifices"
One of the scribes came to Jesus and asked him, “Which is the first of all the commandments?” Jesus replied, “The first is this:
Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is Lord alone! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.
The second is this:
You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
There is no other commandment greater than these.” The scribe said to him, “Well said, teacher. You are right in saying,
He is One and there is no other than he.
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.” And when Jesus saw that he answered with understanding, he said to him, “You are not far from the Kingdom of God.” And no one dared to ask him any more questions.

Prayer #30 from the

O my God, I love You above all things with my whole heart and soul, because You are infinitely good and deserving of all my love. I love my neighbor as myself for love of You. Amen.
Friday is dedicated to Christ's Passion and His Sacred Heart
The words of Jesus and Jesus who is the Word made flesh is "worth more than all burnt offerings and sacrifices." In this lessons we will discuss why it is that humanity wants to offer something, someone or themselves to God or the gods. It is not enough that we offer to God, we also have to offer the way He asks us. We will look at the oblations of the Old Testament and how those older rites are made new, perfected and fulfilled in Jesus Christ and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Ultimately our oblation, the gift of our self to God, takes place at the Mass, where we offer ourself to the Father through Christ, with Christ and in Christ.
FAST. FREE. FAITHFUL.
