Reflection
Fifth Sunday of Easter
19th May 2019
‘Love one another, just as I have loved you’

As Eastertide continues, we can take fresh heart that we are part of God’s glorious plan to bring about a new creation. Jesus’s new commandment to love one another as he loves us is the key to transforming the world.

The exhilarating mission of Paul and Barnabas in the First Reading helps us to see what can be achieved when we allow God to work within us, even as we endure hardships on the way.

The Psalm calls us to sing with the whole creation of God’s mighty deeds; his glory, his goodness and his compassion for us.

The vision of the heavenly Jerusalem in the Second Reading promises a new creation where the bond between God and his people is fully restored.

In the Gospel, Father and Son are together glorified as Jesus prepares to leave this world. Now Jesus gives his friends a new charge: to love one another as he loves us, so we can be recognised as his disciples.

This week I might pray to love others more and more as Jesus loves us, so that I can help play my own part in making all things new.

Pope Francis 
Please pray for The Pope and our Shepherds.
God never gives someone a gift they are not capable of receiving. If he gives us the gift of Christmas, it is because we all have the ability to understand and receive it.
