Weekly Devotion – June 5th

Our reflection from the Gospel this week is:

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son.”

This passage in the Gospel of John tells us of the great expanse of God’s love. In the second reading, St. Paul gives us a glimpse into how we, one person at a time, may plant the seeds of love. He implores us to “encourage one another, agree with one another,” and so live in peace. God’s love encompasses the whole world, and every individual, each of whom God has created.

We pray together: St. Jude, in a world full of many different cultures and ways of being, bless my heart with understanding and patience so that I may build peace in my life and the lives of those I love.
