23rd FEBRUARY, BIBLE READING I (LEVITICUS 19:1-2, 17-18)

LOVE OF NEIGHBOUR

The Lord spoke to Moses; he said: “Speak to the whole community of the sons of Israel and say to them: “Be holy, for I, the Lord your God, am holy.

You must not bear hatred for your brother in your heart. You must openly tell him, your neighbour, of his offence; this way you will not take a sin upon yourself. You must not exact vengeance, nor must you bear a grudge against the children of your people. You must love your neighbour as yourself. I am the Lord.”

V. The word of the Lord.
R. Thanks be to God.
