6th Sunday of Easter
GOSPEL John 15:9-17
A reading from the holy Gospel according to John.
Jesus said to his disciples:
“As the Father has loved me, so l have loved you.
Remain in my love.
If you keep my commandments you will remain in my love,
just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and remain in his love.
I have told you this
so that my own joy may be in you and your joy be complete.
This is my commandment: love one another, as I have loved you.
A man can have no greater love than to lay down his life for his friends.
You are my friends,
if you do what I command you.
I shall not call you servants any more, because a servant does not know his master’s business;
I call you friends,
because I have made known to you everything I have learnt from my Father.
You did not choose me, no, I chose you; and I commissioned you to go out and to bear fruit, fruit that will last;
and then the Father will give you anything you ask him in my name.
What I command you is to love one another.”
The Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
