In Mark 12:28-31, when Jesus was asked what commandment is most important, He first quoted Deuteronomy 6:4-5: “Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord is one! And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.” In this response, the Lord reveals that first and foremost the very nature of God is One. And we are to love God — which is to love oneness. Jesus said the second greatest commandment is this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” We are reminded of this in 1 Peter 4:8: “Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins.” The Church today is divided into many factions, and this sin keeps it from moving in authority to bind satan. However, God is pouring out His mercy and grace that we may have a sincere love for one another. Fervent love will make us one, enabling us to be God’s vessels of mercy to a world in need of Jesus’ love and salvation. This message was spoken during an invited visit to the parish of Our Lady Of Fatima, a Catholic church located in Meier, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
