Sixth Sunday of Easter

As Christians we seek to follow the example of Christ, who poured himself out in love.  Love know no limits and there is not a point when we say “enough”.  Love sees the other as another self, so that the needs of the other are as important as our own.  When modern communication has made the world a global village, the needs of our neighbors can seem overwhelming.  Where do we stop?  Yet, we are called to move beyond ourselves as Jesus did and to place our lives in service of the other, in imitation of him.  Then we may merit the name “disciple,” when we are known by our love.
