Prayer of the Day

Fifth Week of Easter

“Jesus said; ‘As the Father has loved me,  so I have loved you;  abide in my love.  If you keep my commandments,  you will abide in my love,  just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in His love.'” (John 15 : 9)

Jesus tells us that He loves us as much as His Father loves Him.  Jesus loves us in spite of ourselves.  Jesus invites us to remain in His love by obeying His commandments.  Genuine love for one another means attending to the needs and weaknesses of others.
