Time and again God has demonstrated his power, love and kindness to the people of Israel. Yet time and again, the people are only able to follow God for so long before this or that human concern is a problem. We're hungry. We're thirsty. Are we there yet? You know the routine. Moses reminds the people the Law is not so hard. In fact, it is quite close to the people, even in our hearts. At the heart of the Law is love, the love of God which helps us to love him and our neighbor.
Homily given at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish, University City, Missouri. Readings for Today. Listen to our other homilies.

Moses reminds the people the Law is not so hard. In fact, it is quite close to the people, even in our hearts. And yet, the law is not so hard. At the heart of the Law is love, the love of God which helps us to love him and our neighbor.
