31st SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
The smartphone in your hand is an almost miraculous device. It plays music, it talks, it takes videos and photos, and it contains all the information that Wikipedia can hold. Moreover, it connects you with anyone anywhere in the world.
If smartphones had been around in Jesus’ time, the commandments would have been available on an app. The scribe’s question might have been, “Which app on your cell phone is the greatest?” Jesus might have answered, “The big red heart shaped app that tells you to ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength.”
