Gospel of John 15:12-17 (from the readings of the day)
Jesus said to his disciples:
“This is my commandment: love one another as I love you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. I no longer call you slaves, because a slave does not know what his master is doing. I have called you friends, because I have told you everything I have heard from my Father. It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you. This I command you: love one another.”
Fitting readings as I prepare for ordination to the priesthood tomorrow. Fitting for all us to read as we contemplate the mission that has been given to each of us in our baptism. Have a blessed day! Please pray for me!
