Love One Another

Today we read in St. John’s Gospel a rather simple statement – “Love one another as I love you.”  This brief statement is probably one of the most difficult to do.  It would have been so much easier if Jesus had only given us a list of do’s and don’ts.  This statement really is cause for pause and reflection.  Jesus knew his disciples and continually challenged them to grow and change.  He wanted them to be their best selves.  Jesus knows us too and wants us to follow his command to love.  We live in a world that is desperately in need of love and care for all of humanity.  As we celebrate Graduations and the reception of the Sacraments these days let us remember to “love one another.”
