Reflections on Sunday’s Readings: May 6, 2018

May 6, 2018: The Sixth Sunday of Easter. Just as God loves us, we should love one another. We reflect on God’s love-even for those with whom we struggle-and on how we can share God’s love with others. For the early Christians, it meant reaching out to the Gentiles. How is the Spirit calling us to embody God’s love in our time? How do I give the love of Christ to those most in need?

The Readings:

  • Acts 10:25-26, 34-35, 44-48. What can stop these foreigners from receiving the Spirit? God shows no partiality. Do we  realize God’s love for those with whom we struggle?

  • 1 John 4:7-10. The one without love knows nothing of God.  We know love because God has first loved us.

  • John 15:9-17. Remain in God’s love--and Christ has called us friends. There is no greater love than to give your life for another—we must love one another as God has loved us.  Do we recognize that we are invited into God’s friendship and then commanded to love one another?

Please note:

Derby craziness is here!  

There is no Adoration on the first Friday, Oaks Day. (Rescheduled for May 25)

There is no Mass on Derby Day, Saturday May 5

Your next opportunities  for Individual Reconciliation: May 12 and 26 (2nd & 4th Saturdays), 4PM in the Chapel.

Start your day in a wonderful way: come to Taizé Prayer on Friday, May 13, 6:50-7:25AM, in the Worship Space.  This is a contemplative style of prayer in the dawning of the day, with simple chants, readings and quiet.
