New! Love one another as I have loved you.
Sixth Sunday of Easter B

Frank Enderle
In our society the word 'love' is heard everywhere. It is repeated ad nauseum. And, above all, we hear a lot about love of neighbor. "Our neighbors have to be helped" is said repeatedly. Many times I ask myself, "If there is so much love and so much yearning to help others in this world, why do we feel so little love and understanding in the people that we come across every day, in those who are nearest to us and with whom we live?"

New! Deus Caritas Est
6th Sunday of Easter B

Antonio P. Pueyo
hose who experienced love in its instinctive state of eros may feel a need to go farther forward to that state called caritas-agape.

New! A Higher Kind of Love
6th Sunday of Easter

Antonio P. Pueyo
Jesus is more than just a heroic figure to emulate and an image to inspire us. Jesus continues to be a living presence in the world and in His community of friends. The Holy Spirit came down on the household of Cornelius and amazed the disciples that “the Holy Spirit should be poured out on pagans too.” So will the Spirit of Jesus amaze us and urge us to ge beyond what we think we are capable of, even to the point of heroic love.

New! Filled to the Brim

Jesus wants us to be completely flooded and fulfilled with joy. Such filling happens when we practice self-giving love."
