Geeky Catholic Sunday: The Fifth Sunday of Easter 2019

Gospel Reading: John 13:31-35

Highlight: "This is how all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another."

Reflection: Being a follower of Christ means a lot of things. There are things we believe that the rest of the world mocks. Our faith can influence who we vote for, or where we spend our money. That's a good thing; our faith should influence every aspect of our lives. But the defining characteristic of a Christian should be the way we love. Our marriages, our relationships with family members, and even the way we treat complete strangers - all of these things should be a shining example of God's love for his people. That is quite a responsibility. How well do I live up to that in my daily interactions with people? When I am at home, or at the grocery store, or on the road, do I demonstrate God's love?

Geeky Quote: "Attachment is forbidden. Possession is forbidden. Compassion, which I would define as unconditional love, is essential to a Jedi's life. So you might say that we are encouraged to love." - Anakin Skywalker, Star Wars: Attack of the Clones

Prayer: Jesus, help me to always love others as you have loved me. Amen.
