Weekly Reflection

Love One Another as I have Loved You


We are in the Easter season and this weekend is its 5th week of Easter. The season of Easter reminds us of the Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus and it is a celebration of ‘New life’ which has come to us through our Risen Lord. The Scripture Readings for this weekend are a mixed group, but each reflects the Easter message of ‘new life’. All three of them inevitably speak about ‘newness’, and at the same time stand on a firm common ground and build blocks over it, ever raising it tall. The First Reading speaks of new converts and new communities formed and founded by the Apostles, here on earth, on Jesus’ new commandment of love. And the Second Reading speaks about a new heaven & a new earth and a new Jerusalem, after our life here on earth, which is the attic apartment and the culmination of Jesus’ new commandment of love. Let us consider each of them. The Gospel passage gives us the secret of Christian renewal as the faithful practice of Jesus’ new commandment: “Love one another as I have loved you” (John 13:35). Jesus has added a new element to the Old Testament command of love by telling us that the true test of discipleship is to love other people in the same way that He has loved us. Hence, the renewal of Christian life means a radical change of vision and a reordering of our priorities in life. Such a renewal brings us to embrace new attitudes, new values and new standards of relating to God, to other people and, indeed, to our whole environment. For most of us, “renewal” is something that comes at different stages in our lives, each time bringing us to a deeper understanding, insight and commitment. It is only with the grace of God that we love our neighbour as ourselves in this new way. It is only by living every day with Jesus that we can love our neighbour as ourselves in this new way. Can we live our day in such a way that we are in communion with Jesus in some way all day? It is only by living our day with Jesus that we can love as he loved.

Children’s Liturgy

Children’s Liturgy As a group we gather in the MacKillop Room, listen to the gospel, sing the Alleluia and discuss what it all means for us as followers of Jesus in 2015. We usually respond to the word in a number of ways- using drama, mediation, song, drawing and creating in a meaningful way. We conclude with Prayers of the Faithful, often sharing our own prayers from the heart with each other. We often receive more spiritual wisdom from the children than that from a lot of adults!!
