Commentary on the Gospel of
Can you put the whole human race in two categories: the good and the bad? Surely there are shades of goodness and badness. But that is not the point of the parable. A parable makes only one point, but we often read parables as if they were allegories, that is, stories whose every single element points some moral. No, the single point of today’s parable is that there can be no love of God without love of other people.
