Homily for Monday of the 5th Week of Easter

The verb “to love” is central to today’s gospel passage; it speaks of our love for Jesus, His love for us, and the Father’s love for us. God the Father shows His love by giving us His Son. Jesus shows His love for us by laying down His life for us, and by telling us all He has learned from the Father. We show our love for Jesus by keeping His word, by living according to His teaching, which is summed up as, “Love one another as I have loved you.” 

Jesus promises to send us the Advocate, the Holy Spirit. The role of the Holy Spirit is to keep bringing to our minds the outlook, the mindset, of Jesus. The Holy Spirit helps us to keep Jesus’ word, and especially to love one another as He has loved us. In that gospel passage, there is a whole vision of the Christian life: God’s relationship with us as Father, Son and Spirit, and our loving relationship with God and with each other.+
