Dear Friend in the Lord,

Loving God” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus said to His disciples, “Whoever keeps My Commandments is the one who loves Me; and I shall love and reveal Myself to him.”  Ponder on, “Do we love Jesus deeply by making Him the centre of our lives; or is our love for Him, superficial, uncommitted, and filled with the justifications of our own desires?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 14:21, 23-26

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Whoever holds to my commandments and keeps them is the one who loves me; and whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I shall love him and reveal myself to him.’

‘Anyone who loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we shall come to him and make a home in him. Anyone who does not love me does not keep my words. And the word that you hear is not my own: it is the word of the Father who sent me. I have said these things to you while still with you; but the Paraclete, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and remind you of all I have said to you.’
