Jesus tells us: “Love one another as I have loved you.” So, we may ask ourselves: Is love a mere sentimental attraction towards another person? Or is it something deeper than that?

In today’s Gospel Reading, we heard the Lord Jesus say: “I am the vine, you are the branches. If a person remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit.” Jesus loved to use the image of the vine to speak about the kingdom of God. Is there any better image of our relationship with him?

One of the most frequent images used by the sacred authors to speak about those whom God has appointed leaders of His people is the image of shepherds.
Cycle B: Third Sunday of Easter

The Gospels report only a few appearances of the Lord to his disciples. Every evangelist chose the ones which were most significant to him and the Christian communities for whom his Gospel was written. Saint Luke, who was a physician, was certainly touched by the appearances during which Jesus allowed himself to be touched by his disciples.

We have gathered here today to celebrate the greatest event which ever took place in history: the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our Lenten observances have prepared us to celebrate this event with great joy. However, if we want to experience the real spirit of Easter, we have to go back two thousand years ago and relive the incidents which took place in Jerusalem after the death of Christ.
Cycle B: Good Friday

The fact that Jesus had a presentiment of his death and even declared that he would be rejected and condemned to death can be understood without any difficulty. But what poses a problem is that he spoke about that as a necessity.
