FAITH BOOK

6th SUNDAY OF EASTER (B) May 6, 2018

ACTS 10: 25-26, 34-35, 44-48; Psalm 98; 1 JOHN 4: 7-10; JOHN 15: 9-17

By Jude Siciliano, OP

 

Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

[Jesus said to his disciples]

"It is not you who chose me, but I who chose you

And appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain..."

 

Reflection:

 

Jesus assures us that we already have God’s love; it is not something we must earn by minute adherence to a code of proper behavior. Jesus is asking us to live out of the realization of that love. We are his "friends," he tells us, so now go out and live like friends with one another – bear fruit.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • In my daily life, what "fruits" do I bear in Jesus’ name?
