Fifth Sunday of Easter

April 27, 2013

THEY WILL KNOW WE ARE CHRISTIANS. . .

Today, we hear that we are receiving a new commandment:  to love one another, just as Jesus loved us.

This is how all will know that you are Christian.  Thus it is implied that it is by this degree that we will be judged.

For if we love the least of these, then we will love God.  The least will help us to know God.  It is the great irony of love – it is only perfected in you when you give it to someone else.  In our love for one another, all things become new, as our 2nd reading reads – a new heaven and new earth is created and the old will pass away.
