Daily Meditation for May 18, 2022

Last Sunday, you heard Jesus say, “I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another. You will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” How do we show our love for others? In our family, we can do this by spending time together, by helping with tasks and chores and by showing respect for each other. Among our friends, we can send a note or make a phone call. We could offer to go to lunch or have coffee with a person who is lonely. In our parish community, we can greet a stranger and welcome them. In each of these ways, we are showing our love for Jesus and are being his true followers. Take time for quiet prayer and thank Jesus for his unconditional love.
