REFLECTION

In our gospel, Jesus puts before each of us the great command; love one another, just as I love you. And this is more challenging and difficult than it sounds. We are not asked to simply like each other; we are to love each other as Jesus showed us...As followers of Jesus today, we are called not simply to believe in the resurrection, we are called to live it through the quality of our daily lives, through how we treat each other and speak to each other. Our actions will speak louder than our words. As John of the Cross reminds us, “at the end of our lives, God will not judge us on our earthly possessions and our human achievements but on how much we have loved.”
