We continue hearing in the first reading about Paul and Barnabus in their missionary journey. They would travel to a town to evangelize and then move on to another town, in the meantime setting up a church wherever they went.
In the Gospel we hear the great commandment of Jesus to love one another. I wonder if a stranger would walk into Our Lady of Sorrows would they see the love that Jesus asks of us? What do you think? To the extent that we love one another would be to that extent that we will be his disciples. To love not as the world loves but to love in another dimension, that is only possible if we have the Spirit of Jesus. Hopefully all of us gather each weekend to seek that Spirit and to also reflect upon our lives from the readings of the Mass. And see if there is any progress or lack of progress in our following of Jesus. Has your love increased this past week for your family? How about for your enemies?
If we do this then we will also gather around the Lamb where there will be no longer suffering, tears or crying out in pain.
I love you!
Words of Wisdom: Speak well of your enemies after all you created them.
