Seventh Sunday of EasterJohn 17:1-11a
Today’s gospel is a beautiful prayer of Jesus for His diciples. He commends them to the Father reiterating the fact that Jesus and the Father are one. He asks that the disciples may be one as They are. Jesus speaks of the faithfulness of the disciples and asks they receive eternal life. He describes eternal life as the knowledge of “the only true God and Jesus Christ.” The beauty of this discourse brings peace, comfort, harmony, trust, hope, and joy. Reflect on the great love Jesus has for you today.
