Fifth Sunday of Easter April 24, 2016

Today’s Gospel is a small part of an important conversation that Jesus had with His disciples at the Last Supper. As we hear, it takes place right after Judas left to start the plan to arrest Jesus. Jesus knew that he was going to be arrested, tortured and executed, yet he is not concerned about that. He wants his friends to remember that God is with Him and will not let the forces of evil and darkness win. He also wants them to remember that they (and we) have a challenge to live like he did - loving everyone. Just think of some of the ways that Jesus showed his love. Jesus fed five thousand hungry people, He cured lepers, He brought a girl back to life, he changed the water into wine at the wedding feast, He cured the crippled and made the blind see, He forgave sins. All these things changed people’s lives. We cannot do miracles, but when we love, we can change people’s lives, too.

1. What did Jesus tell His apostles to do when he was gone? How do other people know that we are followers of Jesus?
2. Can you think of other ways that Jesus showed his love? What do you do that shows you are a follower of Jesus?
