Catholic Social Justice—Living out our call to love
What is the greatest commandment? Jesus answers: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’” (Matthew 22:37-39). That theme of LOVE is central to our parish mission:
Love God. Love Others.
Make Disciples of Jesus Christ.
The love of God is manifest in love of neighbor, as evidenced in the Good Samaritan parable (Luke 10:29-37). Every human, created in the image of God, is a brother or sister in Christ, possessing equal dignity and worth. Thus, we are called to love and show mercy to all, regardless of social standing, religion, race or ethnicity.
