The Greatest Commandment of All from Christ
The scribe asked a well-intentioned question.
Jesus devoted time to teaching him.
The scribe understood the reply of Christ.

Saint Augustine said: love God is the first
Commandment; love neighbor is the ac-
tion. If you love your neighbor, you can see God.
If you love your neighbor, your eye is cleansed
To see God. John said, “If you do not love
Your neighbor whom you see, how will you be
Able to love God whom you don’t see?”
