The Vine and the Branches
Gospel is a beautiful and meaningful expression of relationship that the
believer must take to heart. The commandment of love is rooted in the love of
the Father and the Son and the love of Jesus and the disciples. It is a love
both mutual and reciprocal. For John, the love Christians have for one another
is a reflection of divine love.
Prayer: I have read that we will be judged on how well we have loved. Help me,
Lord, to love you, myself, and others with my whole heart.
