"As I have loved you, so you should love one another." How does Christ love us? The psalm says, "The LORD is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger and of great kindness. The LORD is good to all and compassionate toward all his works."
One more thing:What would our families be like if we loved one another as Christ loves us all the time? Okay, I know we are human, and most of us have little people still learning about how to love and treat others, but wouldn't that be amazing? Like the glimpse of heaven from the second reading. If we remind our families that we are all on a journey to heaven, and the way to get there is to love one another like Christ loves us, then just maybe our families can be a little slice of heaven here on earth.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, Thank you for loving me and showing me how to love others. Give me your compassion and mercy so that I may be an example of your love to my family. In your name I pray, Amen.
