On Today’s Gospel 

Posted: December 27, 2016 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections

The one whom Jesus loved. A special title for someone whom had loved our dear Lord dearly, with all his heart and with the heart of an innocent child. Who saw through to the heart of Jesus and understood what it meant to love and be loved. For it is only in that love of Christ that more will be revealed of the heart of the Lord our God.

Can we be the one that Jesus loves? Can we in loving humility be a bridge for others to walk on to cross over to Christ? Can we allow others to be first in line to witness to His glory? Can we see with the eyes of faith and believe? Are we ready to share the love of Christ with others?

If the answer is Yes! Then we already know that Jesus loves us dearly and that our love for one another comes from and through Him. And through Him we are One. Amen

St John the Evangelist pray for us…

First reading
1 John 1:1-4

Something which has existed since the beginning,that we have heard,and we have seen with our own eyes; that we have watched and touched with our hands:the Word, who is life – this is our subject.
That life was made visible:
we saw it and we are giving our testimony, telling you of the eternal life which was with the Father and has been made visible to us. What we have seen and heard we are telling you so that you too may be in union with us, as we are in union with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. We are writing this to you to make our own joy complete.

John 20:2-8

On the first day of the week Mary of Magdala came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved. ‘They have taken the Lord out of the tomb’ she said ‘and we don’t know where they have put him.’
So Peter set out with the other disciple to go to the tomb. They ran together, but the other disciple, running faster than Peter, reached the tomb first; he bent down and saw the linen cloths lying on the ground, but did not go in. Simon Peter who was following now came up, went right into the tomb, saw the linen cloths on the ground, and also the cloth that had been over his head; this was not with the linen cloths but rolled up in a place by itself. Then the other disciple who had reached the tomb first also went in; he saw and he believed.
