Heavenly Father,

THE PRESENCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT We have a unique episode in the Acts of the Apostles today. A whole roomful of people are baptized with the Holy Spirit before they are baptized with water! The verb usedthe Holy Spirit fell on them (Acts 10:44)is characteristic of the way the Spirit works throughout the book of Acts: powerful and surprising. Though this baptism is not the normative way the New Testament describes baptism, it is still a good reminder today that the Holy Spirit is not controlled by whether or not we pour water, but rather that our sacramental signs reveal the presence of the Spirit at work among us. And we have a double reinforcement of how this work is accomplished from a Letter and a Gospel bearing Johns name. It is love, self-sacrificing and selfgiving love, that manifests the Spirit of Jesus in our midst. It is love that is the greatest of commandments. The Spirit is manifested equally through those who live in that love. Copyright J. S. Paluch Co.

Dear Friends in Christ: This is my commandment: love one another as I love you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down ones life for ones friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. Love one another. John 15:9-17 This year, these words of Jesus to his disciples in the Gospel of John are proclaimed throughout the world on the 6th Sunday of Easter. As we celebrate Mothers Day in the United States, Jesus command to love one another takes on special meaning for all families in our country. In the Archdiocese of Chicago, this day provides a special gift of love and support to mothers, grandmothers and families who are raising their children in poverty, hunger and homelessness, as we take up the Catholic Charities Collection on Mothers Day in parishes throughout Cook and Lake Counties. Your Mothers Day gift to Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Chicago will assist thousands of struggling families and vulnerable children of all races and religions who rely on us to meet their basic human needs of food, clothing and shelteras well as those parents and children who benefit from Catholic Charities professional services such as stable, affordable housing; job training; counseling and child care. Since Catholic Charities founding in 1917, through two World Wars and the Great Depression, as well as the rising and falling economic tides of every decade, Catholic Charities has increasingly offered hope and help to struggling families, children and seniors of all faiths. Catholic Charities conducts 157 programs at 162 locations in Cook and Lake Counties and annually reaches more than one million men, women and children in need. These services include accredited child-care programs, family and individual counseling, home-delivered meals for seniors, affordable apartments for lowincome seniors, the St. Leo Residence for Veterans, emergency food pantries and weekly suppers. Through your generosity to Catholic Charities, you offer Easter joy and a future of hope to mothers, fathers, grandparents and caregivers whose lives are governed by poverty as they struggle daily to provide food, clothing, schooling and safety to their most precious possessions, their children. In the Gospel, Jesus shows us the nature of his unconditional love, and invites us to live in his love. As followers of Jesus, we strive to imitate the sheer magnitude of his generosity to us by caring for mothers and their families in need. Thank you for your generosity to our brothers and sisters who rely on our love and the services of Catholic Charities. May the Risen Christ bless all mothers and their loved ones with the fullness of his love. Sincerely yours in Christ, Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I. Archbishop of Chicago

In the Gospel (John 13:34) Jesus asks us to love others as he loves us. Since we have so many depictions of love in what we see on TV and read and listen to in popular music it would be good to understand exactly what is the love Jesus speaks of. There are four words for love in Greek: (stergo), love of parents for children, (philia), love for friends, we would say friendship, (eros), selfish love, erotic love, (agape), unselfish love, wanting what is best for the other. It is always this fourth word, , that the evangelists use to describe the love of Jesus and it is this word that he uses to ask us to love others as he loved us. How do you love others with this love? Jesus has given us many pieces of advice for loving others with this love. Always treat others as you would like them to treat you. (Matt 7:12) Love your enemies. (Matt 5:44) We are not called to like our enemies but to love them. We are to forgive not seven times but seventy-seven times (Matt 18:22). Someone has said that forgiveness is the highest form of love. It is easy to love those who are good to us but what about loving those who have hurt us? The more serious the hurt the more difficult it is to love them. Therefore we need to heal these hurts so that we can love others. Jesus said we will be known as his disciples by the love we have for one another. We can make heaven on earth by loving as Jesus loved and we get a description of heaven in our second reading today. Today we thank God for the gift of his love for us, we thank Jesus for his love for us. Through prayer, and the healing of hurts through prayer, let us continue to draw strength from God to love others with love as Jesus loved us. (By Fr. T. Lane)

I give you a new commandment: Love one another; just as I have loved you, you also must love one another. (John 13:34)
