As I Have Loved You

May 13, 2012, 6th Sunday of Easter: Acts 10:25-26, 34-35, 44-48; 1 John 4:7-10; John 15:9-17

Suggested Reflection Questions:

  • The first reading says that “God shows no partiality.” God’s message and God’s love are for everyone. What do you find most challenging about God’s impartiality? Who are the people you are tempted to exclude?
  • When have you experienced “laying down your lives” for each other? What sacrifices do you make for others or do others make for you out of love?
  • There’s a lot of talk about love in today’s readings … but what does love really mean? What does it look like in action in your real life? Call to mind a specific moment when you knew love was working.
