WATCH: This Sunday, the Simple Secret to Love

It should surprise us that the most important commandment is love, says Father Simon Baker about this Sunday’s readings. His simple secret to loving yourself — and others as yourself — is surprisingly simple.

Benedictine Father Simon Baker is the chaplain of Benedictine College and a monk of St. Benedict’s Abbey. He spoke about the readings for the 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year A).

St. Benedict Abbey’s 60 Seconds for Sunday series of videos looks at each upcoming Sunday’s readings.

The monks at the Abbey, along with the Benedictine Sisters at Mount St. Scholastica, are what make Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas, Benedictine.
