DG BookGospel: John 14:21-26
Whoever keeps my commandments is the one who loves me. If he loves me, he will also be loved by my Father; I too shall
love him and show myself clearly to him.” Judas—not Judas Iscariot—asked Jesus, “Lord, how can it be that you will show
yourself clearly to us and not to the world?” Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word and my Father

will love him; and we will come to him and live with him. But if anyone does not love me, he will not keep my words; and these words that
you hear are not mine, but the Father who sent me. I told you all this while I am still with you. From now on the Helper, the Holy Spirit whom
the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things, and remind you of all that I have told you.

 

Reflection:

 

The Rector of a major seminary, with whom I shared
formation responsibilities, would periodically lament,
half-jokingly and half-seriously: “I am tired of showing good
example to the students. I need a break!” Many of us can identify
with his frustration. It is hard to keep doing good things and
be “a model.” But, in truth, this is hard only when love hasn’t
swept us off the feet. Anyone in love would know that he or
she would go any length to do anything for the beloved. No
work is hard for the one in love. Jesus is spot on when he says if
anyone loves him, he or she will truly keep his word, and if one
doesn’t, it would be hard for that person to keep the word.
Love always effects a spring on our feet. It is love that makes our
feet like the hind’s feet and helps us climb and dance upon the
mountain heights (cf. Hab 3:19).
