May 19 - John 15: 9-11

Fr. Michael MachacekNativity of Our LordMay 19, 2022

today's other readings are Acts 15: 7-21 and Psalm 96

Continuing from the preceding passage in chapter 15, we read in today's gospel that Jesus tells the Apostles to abide in his love, a statement that will extend through them to all peoples of all time.  To abide in Him will bring joy.  To do so will bring peace.  To do so will enable us to make the journey home - the home of the church, and also the eternal home of heaven. 

A constant theme found in Jesus’ life, ministry, death and resurrection is that His person, His love is the answer to all the longings of our hearts. Jesus offers Himself as our true home, where we find true joy, meaning, and peace. And so enabled, we in turn can do our part in helping to bring others to Him.

Let us abide in Him.
