Dear Friend in the Lord,
“Greatest Love” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims, there is “no greater love than to lay down His Life for His friends. You are My friends.” Jesus promises His disciples and all of us, that He loves us so deeply that He willingly dies for our salvation, so that we can live with Him and His Father eternally.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘This is my commandment: love one another, as I have loved you. No one can have greater love than to lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends, if you do what I command you. I shall no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know the master’s business; I call you friends, because I have made known to you everything I have learnt from my Father.
‘You did not choose me, no, I chose you; and I commissioned you to go out and to bear fruit, fruit that will last; so that the Father will give you anything you ask him in my name. My command to you is to love one another.’
