My Gospel Reflections for May 7 Monday of the Fifth Week of Easter John 14:21-26


My Reflections:
Love begets love, for example if a husband will show his love for his wife he gets love in return from his wife. As the marriage moves-on the love between spouses flounder it passes through stormy waters. And it will take humility and forgiveness for both spouses to triumphantly pass through that turbulence. 

The love of Jesus for us is unconditional He loves us even if we have betrayed Him so many times. It is not even attached to any actions that we do for God has already forgiven us for the many betrayals that we’ve caused Him.

However, even if Jesus has forgiven us already it is still our obligation to always humble ourselves before Him. We show Jesus that we love Him deeply when we humbly say sorry to Him for the many hurts that we’ve caused Him. This we do when we humbly submit ourselves to the healing Sacrament of Reconciliation/Confession.

When was your last Confession? Would you want to show your love for Jesus by humbly submitting yourself to this healing sacrament?
