5th Sunday of Easter (C)
“I give you a new commandment,” says the Lord. “Love one another as I have loved you” (Jn 13:34). These words from this Sunday’s gospel are some of the most simple and most profound in all of scripture. They are simple enough that even a child can understand them. But we should not use their simplicity as an excuse to not ponder their profound meaning with an adult understanding of faith.
