John 15:1-8

This Gospel is a beautiful and meaningful expression of relationship that the believer must take to heart. The commandment of love is rooted in the love of the Father and the Son and the love of Jesus and his disciples. It is a love both mutual and reciprocal. For John the love Christians have for one another is a reflection of love with the Divine.

How well do I love? I fear my love is sometimes conditional, selfish and half-hearted. Help me to love selflessly, without conditions and with my whole heart.
