Dear Friend in the Lord,
Jesus’ Infinite Love: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims to His disciples, “A man can have no greater love than to lay down his life for his friends. You are My friends. . .” Ponder on, “No other religions profess a God whose Love is so personal and selfless for humanity. Do I consciously love God daily and in spite of my challenges in life?”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘A man can have no greater love than to lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends, if you do what I command you. I shall not call you servants any more, because a servant does not know his 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; and then the Father will give you anything you ask him in my name. What I command you is to love one another.’
