Monday, Fifth Week of Easter 2020

In our Gospel today (Jn 14:21-26) Jesus shares with us many things about himself, the relationship he wants us to have with him and our Father, and the Holy Spirit.  Jesus wants us to have a loving relationship with the triune God, simply by loving Him, and keeping his word, his commandments, out of our love for Him.

The commandments Jesus wants us to follow are pretty simple, though in a world in which selfishness and self centeredness are so prevalent that we've named an entire generation the "Me Generation" and another the "Me Me Me Generation," they can be daunting.  "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" (Mt 22:37-39).

In the peace of Christ,

Dcn. Mike
