6th Sunday of Easter
Readings: Acts 10:25-26, 34-35, 44-48, John 4:7-10, John 15:9-17
Originally delivered on May 8, 1994
In today’s homily, we are reminded that we are called to love one another – sometimes easy and other times difficult. God is Love. When we live in love then we live in God and God in us. We are not to set a measure on what makes others lovable. We must love everyone, just as God loves each of us. We are therefore called to be more forgiving with others. Indeed, in today’s Gospel, we hear: “There is no greater love than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”

Thank you for sharing Fr. Healy’s beautiful homily on God’s love for us and what it means for us in society: to love our enemies and not to allow hate and vindictiveness to characterize our relationship with those enemies.
