Today's Gospel + image + catechesis

Thursday of the Fifth Week of Easter

Gospel text (Jn 15:9-11): «As the Father loves me, so I also love you. Remain in my love». Jesus said to his disciples: “As the Father loves me, so I also love you. Remain in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. “I have told you this so that my joy might be in you and your joy might be complete”.

Today we see the immense love that Jesus has for us: He loves us as much as the Father loves His eternal Son. It is an infinite love! Jesus Christ rightly asks us to remain within His love: it is the best thing in our lives. And this can be costly at times, but the path is clear: to follow Jesus’ steps.

— My parents, my brothers, they love me very, very much. But the Love of God is Love in capital letters. He has given us life and, at the same time, gave His Life for us.
