The Selflessness of Jesus

        In today's Gospel reading from Matthew 22, Jesus gave us the two great commandments.  (1) You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind."  (2) "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." 
        The second commandment shows that he equates loving our neighbors to loving God.  It just shows how selfless he is and this was substantiated by his own sacrifice on the cross.
