10th January


Christ, by loving every human being and by making all human beings lovable in Him, has made of the whole world our neighbour. Therefore, Moses’ commandment is still true, but with a new meaning. The command to love our neighbour is true for both the Old and the New Testament, but there is a difference. In the Old Testament, the love of charity did not have the power to go beyond the nation, whereas in the New Testament, love has been given by Christ’s redemption and grace powerful wings to take it everywhere in the world.
