A Reminder for the Season Ahead

A Call For Peace
“Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” This is the question that begins today’s Gospel. Posed to Jesus in the hopes of tricking him, Jesus is not fooled.

I love the CMMB weekly reflections podcast to begin my Sunday morning with both a gospel message for the week, and something that connects it to the global needs of God’s family. The voices and background music are calm and help me center my attention on the message.
Look forward to this each weekend!
I love CMMB’s work and love hearing about how it relates to the gospel each week.
Inspiring reflections to ground my week and stay conected.
