Prayer of the Day

Fifth Sunday of Easter

"By this love you have for one another, everyone will know you are my disciples." John 13 : 35

The night before He died Jesus spoke these words.  The Apostles listen but do not understand.  We too are able to quote these words,  but how many of us live by them.  We try but often fail. Putting Jesus words into our lives could mean leaving our comfort zone and stretching out to others and loving them.   The Saints understood these words of Jesus.  John of the Cross goes so far as to say; “At the end of our lives we will be judged on love.”


Jesus open our hearts to learn from you. Fill our hearts with love that reaches out to others. At the end of our life let us not be wanting in love. Amen
