Father Ralph A. Bove Pastor
A Family Perspective by Bud Ozar
Sixth Sunday of Easter - May 9, 2021: Today's gospel challenges us to "love one another as I have loved you." Jesus is our model and He asks us to "lay down our life" (our time, attention, opinions and needs) for each other. This is the sacrament of the family, when God is made visible in our sacrificial love for one another.
The words of Jesus in today's gospel, "Abide in me," are appropriate on the day we honor mothers because there is a special bond connecting mothers and their children, extending beyond birth and death. They will always "abide" in each other. It is a lasting presence.
