Gospel Reflection for April 28th, 5th Sunday of Easter

23 Apr

Jesus said, “A new commandment I give you: love one another.  As I have loved you, so also you should love one another.”

John 13:34

 After Judas leaves, Jesus teaches his new commandment.  It turns on the little word as, the likeness to his own love that Jesus expects of his disciples.  “As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”  Love for each other is how others will recognize Jesus’ followers.  Our love for each other will reveal the one we follow.”

How does the community of faith to which you belong live out Jesus’ example and commandment?
