John 13:31–35

My Dear Brothers & Sisters,

Lots of room this week for comments. The gospel strikes me as being amazingly intimate. St. John is always repeating “Love one another”, “Love one another as I have loved you”. It is a contrast to a common misunderstanding. We human beings are very limited, and God chose in sending us His Son, to teach us to live within these limitations. Not only to live within these limitations but to live within them well.

In the parable of the Good Samaritan, the lawyer asks Jesus, “Who is my neighbour?” Jesus’ answer is basically – whoever you make yourself neighbour to!

‘EVERYONE’ is not our neighbour. ‘SOMEONE’ could be.

Who are we called to love?

To love one another (those available to us)
NOT the whole world. God always asks the possible, NOT the impossible.

Make someone happy.
Fr. Richard
