(Reflection on Sunday
"Love one another as I have loved
How does God reveal his glory to us?
During his last supper with his disciples on the eve of his
sacrifice on the cross, Jesus speaks of his glory and the glory of
his Father. What is this glory? It is the cross which
Jesus speaks of here. The cross of Jesus reveals the
tremendous love and mercy of God the Father and his beloved Son for
the human race. John the Evangelist writes, "Fore God so loved
the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, that whoever believes
in him should not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16).
