I chose you

May 19, 2017 6:00 am

“I have called you friends, because I have told you everything I have heard from my Father. It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you. This I command you: love one another.” (JN 15: 15-17) 

Our Lord called us friends, “because I have told you everything I have heard from my Father.” And we can summarize the words of the Father to the most important: “love one another.” This is the “fruit that will remain,” what He expects from us; this is why we are “appointed to go,” and why “He chose us.” 

“I call you my friends, says the Lord, for I have made known to you all that the Father has told me.” (Gospel Acclamation)
