grant that, as by your grace going before us

you put into our minds good desires,

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, the Gospel this week confronts us with, quite possibly, the hardest of all Christ's teachings, the commandment to love one another. It is the hardest of teachings because we are so bad at it. We do not, and often wilfully refuse to love one another. We know that loving our neighbours is a challenge, but we often fail to even love our fellow Christians in our own churches. Why is this? What is it that prevents us from following this commandment?
Our failure to love one another is possibly one of the greatest sins of humanity because it is from a lack of love that all else flows, all the malice, envy and hatred comes from our failure to love our neighbours. I implore you all this week therefore to seek to love one another more fully and to be reconciled where there is hurt and pain.
