Liturgical day: Sunday 5th (C) of Easter

Gospel text (Jn 13,31-33a.34-35): «Now I give you a new commandment: love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also must love one another». When Judas had gone out, Jesus said, «Now is the Son of Man glorified and God is glorified in him. God will glorify him, and He will glorify him very soon.

»My children, I am with you for only a little while; you will look for me, but, as I already told the Jews, so now I tell you: where I am going you cannot come. Now I give you a new commandment: love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another».

Today we hear the farewell words of Jesus. He is about to leave. He will go to the house of the Father with his death on the Cross and his Ascension to the heavens. The last memory he leaves us is his own Love: love one another as I love you.

- Do you love everyone, without enemies? Ask Jesus for a big heart like his.
