Readings for today’s Mass
Similarly, the Catechism of the Catholic Church is also a lot of words; even moreso that the Torah. It is divided into four parts; each part is divided into multiple sections which are divided into even more chapters. Then there are articles and paragraphs before each ends with a summary - "In Brief". If you want to start studying it, there is a link to the catechism on our web site - Other Sites of Interest page. Plan for a long read!
When asked to comment on the Torah, i think Jesus' response might also fit well with our catechism. When a scholar of the law asked him, Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?" Jesus said to him, "You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments."
Seems like a pretty good summation to me. In case you need a refresher on that, take a look at Lk 10:29-37.
