Second Reading for the 23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time Year A

Romans 13:8-10

Summary: Loving others is the only debt we should carry, as it encompasses all commandments and fulfills the law by doing no harm to our neighbors.

Essence of the Law

Brothers and sisters:
Owe nothing to anyone, except to love one another; for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.

The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery; you shall not kill; you shall not steal; you shall not covet, ” and whatever other commandment there may be, are summed up in this saying, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

Love does no evil to the neighbor; hence, love is the fulfillment of the law.
