Gospel Reflection

Patrick Frierson ’98M.A., ‘01 Ph.D.

It doesn’t sound like a good basis for friendship—“You are my friend if you do what I command”—but today’s Gospel reading ends with Jesus claiming that his commands are a gift, offered not because we must love each other but “so that you may love each other.” 

Saint of the Day

St. Catherine of Siena, you who received visions of Jesus in prayer and advised popes, pray for us!
