Sixth Sunday of Easter

A New Commandment: Love One Another!

How should you Love? Who is your model? How do you really learn to love?

Jesus gives us the answer to these questions in today’s Gospel: “A New Commandment: Love One Another!”

His instruction from the Last Supper discourse has much more to say to us: “As the Father has loved me, so I also have loved you. Remain in my love. I have told you this do that my joy may be in you and your joy may be complete.”

“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.”

“It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain… This I command you: love one another.”
