This Sunday is the Sixth Sunday of Easter, however, you may hear the reading for the Seventh Sunday of Easter instead. Here are reflections for both!
Gospel Reflection for The Sixth Sunday of Easter
In today’s gospel, Jesus tells His disciples that if they love Him, they will obey Him. He also tells them that He will send the Holy Spirit to be with them so that they will never be alone.
Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to help us love God more. When we love someone, we can show them we love them by the way we act.
By obeying God, we are showing Him how much we love Him. The Ten Commandments are meant to teach us how to better love God and the people around us.
The Holy Spirit guides us and gives us the strength we need to love God with all of our heart. We are never alone because Jesus is always with us in the Eucharist, He is always watching over us.
Gospel Reflection for The Seventh Sunday of Easter
In the gospel, we hear Jesus’ words from the Last Supper as He speaks to God, His Father. Jesus loved us so much, He came into the world to save us from our sins by dying on the Cross.
Jesus wanted the whole world to know Him and love Him. He died so that we would all be able to live with Him one day in Heaven.
Love is really special, but sometimes, it can be painful. Jesus showed us how much he loved us by dying for us.
We can show Jesus we love Him by offering him our sacrifices and other small acts of love.
We are God’s children, and He will always love us and take care of us.
