READ:

Jesus said to his disciples: “As the Father loves me, so I also love you. Remain in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. “I have told you this so that my joy might be in you and your joy might be complete. This is my commandment: love one another as I love you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. I no longer call you slaves, because a slave does not know what his master is doing. I have called you friends, because I have told you everything I have heard from my Father. It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you. This I command you: love one another.”

–John 15: 9-17

 

REFLECT:

In today’s Gospel we hear about the love God has for Jesus, about the love the Jesus has for us, and how he wants us to love everyone with the same amount of love he has for his children. We also learn that Jesus himself chose us to spread his word and love to those around us, that we have a purpose on this earth and that everyone is called to greatness. “It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain.”

 

RESPOND:

Today ask God to help you love others just as He loves us.
