Catechism of the Catholic Church Section 3:19 – You must love the Lord your God with all your heart (2083-2089) by Fr Guy de Gaynesford

20CCC Artwork for podcast Section 383-2089.  The First Commandment states: ‘I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.  You shall have no other gods before me.  You shall not make for yourself and graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them or serve them (Exodus 20:2-5).  Jesus, when tempted by the Devil in the wilderness responds to one of his taunts by echoing this first commandment: ‘You shall worship the Lord your God and Him only shall you serve’ (Matthew 4:10). Elsewhere he summed up man’s duties toward God in this saying: ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind and with all your strength’ (Luke 10:27, cf. Matthew 22:37). Fr Guy begins to explore these key statements of the Christian faith.
