Gospel: John 15:9-17
”Love one another.”
(cf. Jn 15:17)
Jesus in today’s Gospel commanded his apostles to love one another. So as for them to remain in his love, he encourage them to keep his commandment. The commandment of Jesus to love one another is timeless. It is a never-ending need for humanity.
Corruption, terrorism, poverty – with the humanity dramatically losing its morality, love is still somewhere to find in every one’s hearts.
Beyond morality—principles concerning the distinction between good and bad behaviour—is love, yet love could also be before morality.
The challenge of today’s Gospel is the act of loving until morality is restored. If one could love another, then the other could also do the same to another and so on and so forth. Just always choose to love. #PrayVD
