On Sunday we will celebrate Mother's Day, so it is very fitting to hear Jesus' commandment to love one another -- a love that is like God's love. "As the Father loves me, so I also love you. Remain in my love." (John 15:9)
We are called to be like God -- the God who has a passion for love and justice, the God who is concerned for all of creation, the God who has a special concern for the poor.
Throughout chapter 15, John calls our attention to the fundamental theme of all the gospels: Love. Jesus invites us to fall in love, to live in love. To know, taste and feel the strength of love -- all in the midst of our humanity. Yes, just as we are, Jesus calls us to love one another.
